Family Night Fun – Jiminy Cricket!

Background Photo: Production Cel of Jiminy Cricket from The Mickey Mouse Club’s “I’m No Fool” Segment – 1950’s

Family Night!

Fun with Jiminy Cricket

If you are looking for some family night entertainment, watch Jiminy Cricket.

The other night, Luke and I were sitting around talking with Rory, and somehow, we got on the subject of Jiminy Cricket’s “I’m No Fool.” Luke and I were singing the old familiar song from our early childhood. Rory thought we were crazy. We were all laughing so hard.

Since I had the computer very close at hand, I decided to search up the beloved memories of the past. (Luke and I both remember having to watch these films every year in school from Kindergarten through 3rd grade–late 60’s, early 70’s). Guess what I found on YouTube!

Rory and Luke piled in next to me on the couch, and we watch all the “I’m No Fool” episodes we could find. Your teenager will have a blast laughing over these adorable, yet educational, videos. This was really quite a generation connector–linking our past with the technology of the present.

The short, 8 to 10 minute, films were made back in the 1950’s by Disney, and shown on the original Mickey Mouse Club television program. I’ve put the films together in a playlist for your viewing enjoyment…

Jiminy Cricket in I’m No Fool … Playlist

If you are looking for a fun, laughter-filled family night with your teenager, I would highly recommend Jiminy Cricket’s, “I’m No Fool” series. And, for those of you with little ones, these are super cute and teach great lessons. There is even another Jiminy Cricket series that teaches about the human body. Homeschooler’s resource?

X-ray of a Blog – Blogging Tips Series pt. 2

This is the Second article in a Three-part Series. If you missed the First installment of X-ray of a Blog, please go check it out.

FADE IN:

INT. EMERGENCY ROOM PATIENT’S ROOM

The heart monitor beeps.

NURSE
Doctor, we’re losing him.

DOCTOR
Hand me the paddles. Give me 360 joules.

NURSE
Ready, Doctor.

DOCTOR

FADE OUT.

The X-ray of a Blog

In this three-part series, we will explore the attributes and make-up of a blog. In part one, we examined the Skeleton, Skin, Nervous System, and Brain. Part Two explores the Heart, Soul, Mouth, Eyes and Ears, and Hands. Once again, you will find links to help explain and provide you with more detail. Onto the X-ray…

The Heart

Posts are the heart, pumping life into your blog. Every entry a blogger makes needs to be well written and well planned. That does not mean that every post requires an exorbitant amount of research or time. Just be sure that what you post well done. It is not always easy to know what to post about; maybe some of these links will help.

The Soul

A blogs Soul allows the reader to get to know the author. The style of writing, the About Page, and the personality of the blogger shines through. Readers like to connect with the blogger. Share your Soul; show them who you are.

The Mouth

A mouth speaks, and that communication through a blog comes in the form of comments. Comments not only from your readers, but also from replies back from you, the blogger. Interact with your readers, engage them in conversation, encourage feedback. Commenting on blogs you read is also very important. Leaving comments not only helps gain readers and followers, but also it can be key in triggering inspiration for your blog.

The Eyes and Ears

You cannot use the senses of taste, touch, and smell on a blog, so the Eyes and Ears become all the more important. Be sure to use photographs, graphics, and videos to the best possible advantage.

X-ray of a Blog – Blogging Tips Series pt. 1

Life With Lorelai is being featured today on I Am Meg & So Can You!
Please go check it out.

FADE IN:

INT.    A BUSY HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM

PARAMEDICS push through the doors with a BLOG on a gurney. The NURSE gets them to a room and calls the DOCTOR.

PARAMEDICS
We have a Blog in distress, but no clues as to what’s wrong.

The doctor begins his examination.

DOCTOR
Nurse, We’re going to need some lab work. We have lethargy, failure to thrive, possible internal injuries, and clearly, the Blog is in need of some cosmetic surgery. Let’s get an X-ray stat.

NURSE
Yes, Doctor, right away.

FADE OUT.

The X-ray of a Blog

In this three-part series, we will explore the attributes and make-up of a blog. In part one, we will examine the Skeleton, Skin, Nervous System, and Brain. You will find links to provide you with more detail. Let’s delve into the X-ray…

The Skeleton

Just like the human body, a blog cannot function without its skeletal frame, and in this case that means your blogging platform or blog host. Understanding these systems can be tricky, so it helps to know some key terminology, tips, and tricks.

The Skin

Unlike the skeletal bones, the skin doesn’t show up in X-rays, but it’s the first thing readers notice when visiting your blog. Work with themes, designs, and fonts. Taking care of your “skin” is vital.

The Nervous System

The nervous system is an internal communications highway. It receives input and passes it along to the proper areas for an action to take place. In a blog, plug-ins, widgets, customizations, and tools pass along the hidden parameters you set that result in how your blog works and communicates information to others.

The Brain

The brain of a blog organizes, analyzes, examines statistics, and records memories.

This is a lot of information for one post. Part Two of this X-ray of a Blog Series will take us on a journey through the Heart, Soul, Mouth, Eyes and Ears, and Hands.
Look for it next
Wednesday, August 14th.
