And in movie news, the folks at Fox are laughing all the way to the bank! “Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs” has made $734,116,992 world-wide, while Disney’s “Up” has only made $366,253,296, less than half that amount.
“Titanic” still reigns supreme with $1,835,300,000 – only three other movies are even over the billion-dollar mark!

Had to laugh at Karen's comment. I had the same feeling, like sheesh - this Diane IS full of spunk with the amount of stuff in this post and the energy it must take to put it all together! LOL.

But thanks - as usual lots of valuable tips, links and leads! :)
