Elton John makes music history at Hyperion Theatre:

 Music superstar and Disney Legend Elton John played pianos across 11 countries on January 25,2013 for the 125th anniversary of Yamaha- and he did it all from the stage of the Hyperion Theatre at Disney California Adventure Park. The famed musician used Yamaha's groundbreaking Disklavier piano, powered by RemoteLive technology. The new technology developed by Yamaha, the resort's official music instrument provider,makes it possible to stream visual, audio and other information related to performances via the Internet.

 Other music stars participating in the special private concert included Amy Grant, Chaka Khan, Earth, Wind & Fire, David Foster, Michael McDonald and Sarah McLachlan.

Disneyland Park Guests can experience Yamaha's Disklavier technology every day at the Innoventions Dream Home in Tomorrowland.

ever changing technology, don't you just love it...Dr Lee

Snow White-An Enchanting Musical opens at Disneyland Park:

 February 24,2004:

 The Fantasyland Theatre at Disneyland Park will revive its tradition of live stage performances with the debut of "Mickey and the Magical Map" this summer. That tradition dates back to 1985, when the open-air venue opened as Videopolis. Future Broadway stars like Stephanie J. Block and Eden Espinosa, plus musical acts spanning from New Kids on the Block to Oingo Boingo, have performed on the Fantasyland Theatre stage over the years.

 The last stage production at this venue was "Snow White-An Enchanting Musical," which opened February 23,2004. This 28-minute adaptation of Walt Disney's first animated feature film transformed the Fantasyland Theatre into a lush forest, flanked by an imposing, gargoyle-topped castle tower for the Evil Queen to peer down from. The seven dwarfs entered through the audience, singing the classic refrain of "Heigh-Ho," and their 30-foot-wide, 15-foot-tall cottage rotated to let audiences see inside.

 A unique element of the production was the Magic Mirror, voiced by Patrick Stewart, Developed by Michael Curry-who went on to design the puppets for "the Lion King" on Broadway-the Magic Mirror's animated face was created from shifting fragments of specially lit, back-painted Lexan plastic.

2004,wow times moves on...Dr Lee

A sign of the times:

 Instead of telling passers-by about it's products, Ganahl Lumber offers fun sayings and words of wisdom.

 Motorists traveling the busy streets of Anaheim, California are bombarded with signs advertising fast-food meal deals, clothing sales and constantly fluctuating gas prices.

 For years, those passing by Ganahl Lumber's headquarters on Ball road(about 1 mile from Disneyland) have seen a different sign: 12-inch-tall white plastic letters that form a message not to get to your wallet but, instead, to appeal to your mind.

 "A fine is a tax for doing wrong. A tax is a fine for doing well," or another: "He who buys what he does not need steals from himself."

 Not what you might expect to see in front of a company-in business, after all, of making money. "The idea is to bring inspiration, a smile or create a lighthearted moment in people's day," saided Peter Ganahl, CEO of lumberyard  and hardware store company, family owned since 1884.

 The 24-foot-long by 8-foot-high sign has been the same since 1978, when Ganahl moved to 1220 E. Ball Road( approx. 3/4 of a mile from Mr Stox), also the home to the company headquarters.

 Ganahl considered up-dating the sign to an electronic version when the store was remodeled a few years ago, but city officials said no deal. Turns out the sign no longer conforms to city standards- too big: but it's been grandfathered in because it predates current codes. Any changes to the sign and it would have to come down for a smaller one.

 Of the lumber company's nine locations around Southern California, Anaheim is the only site to maintain a reader board.

 Every two weeks, the message is changed, usually on Fridays. From customers to employee's to on line searches, even bumper stickers, this is were those sayings come to be. The only other messages that go up now are to notify the public of the rare "closed for inventory'" days or periodic blood drives. No messages have ever been repeated.

 Often the messages are themed for holidays or events around town- the start of Angels baseball (Angel stadium is approx. 2 miles) ,or to motivate marathon runners on a course winding by Ganahl Lumber.

Ganahl Lumber had a message," Knowledge talks, Wisdom listens."

 In closing, the one message I really liked was for New Year's Day....."Drive hammered. Get nailed!!!"

Driving to work at Club 33 or Mr Stox,I would drive by Ganahl Lumber and read their messages...Dr Lee

Peter Pan:

 Sixty years ago,Febuary 5,1953,"Peter Pan" was adapted from the play by English anthor James M. Barrie.

 From the second star to the right and straight on `til morning, a boy who refuses to grow up flies through the window of a London home, where a girl is hanging on to her childhood. With a touch of pixie dust, Peter Pan takes Wendy and her two brothers soaring into a fantasy world of Indians, mermaids and Lost Boys. But to return from Neverland, they must outwit the nefarious pirate Captain Hook, who's occasionally unnerved by hungry crocodiles and being called a codfish.

 Walt Disney had hoped to make it one of his earliest animated films, starting the planning in 1935. Rising young star Bobby Driscoll played Peter Pan and Kathryn Beaumont, who had just voiced "Alice in Wonderland," played the part of Wendy. Actress Margaret Kerry was the live-action reference model for Tinker Bell- not Marilyn Monroe, as an urban legend incorrectly suggests.

 At Disneyland Park, Peter Pan's Flight has soared through Fantasyland since opening day in 1955. Guests can also meet Tinker Bell and her fairy friends at Pixie Hollow.

Peter Pan and childhood, they go together...Dr Lee
