Disney Reveals Planes Full Voice Cast!

 

August 9th is the big day and I’m super stoked!  Taking the kids to see a movie in the theater is really fun. They are at that perfect age, where they think its the best thing ever.  We always make it an adventure, and it truly is, because I think I can count on one hand the times they’ve seen a movie in the theater.  We are pretty picky about kid movie, and even though I haven’t seen this yet I feel like I can already give it two thumbs up!
Last time I mentioned that Dane Cook was slated to play the main character of the movie, Dusty.

Audiences worldwide are fastening their seatbelts as “Disney’s Planes” prepares to take off this summer. Joining Dane Cook, who provides the voice of Dusty, are Stacy Keach, Brad Garrett, Teri Hatcher, Cedric the Entertainer, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, John Cleese, Carlos Alazraqui, Priyanka Chopra, Gabriel Iglesias, Roger Craig Smith, Colin Cowherd, Sinbad, Oliver Kalkofe and Brent Musburger.
 
Adding some high-flying flair from a classic feature film are Anthony Edwards and Val Kilmer.
 
Inspired by the world of “Cars” and directed by Disneytoon Studios veteran and aviation enthusiast Klay Hall (“King of the Hill,” “The Simpsons”), “Disney’s Planes” is an action-packed 3D animated comedy adventure about Dusty’s dream of competing as a high-flying air racer—and his decidedly unfortunate fear of heights.

Stacy Keach (“The Bourne Legacy,” Alexander Payne’s upcoming “Nebraska,” Robert Rodriguez’s and Frank Miller’s “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For”) provides the voice of Skipper, a reclusive old Navy Corsair who takes Dusty’s training to new heights.

·       Brad Garrett (“Everybody Loves Raymond,” “How to Live with Your Parents for the Rest of Your Life”) lends his voice to fuel truck Chug, Dusty’s buddy, coach and biggest fan.
·       Teri Hatcher (“Coraline,” ABC’s “Desperate Housewives”) brings life and charm to the say-it-like-it-is mechanic Dottie.
·       Cedric the Entertainer (“Barbershop,” “Larry Crowne, “Madagascar”) as Leadbottom, a puttering old biplane who has no time for Dusty’s far-fetched flights of fancy.
·       Julia Louis-Dreyfus (“Veep,” “The New Adventures of Old Christine,” “Seinfeld”) lends her voice to Rochelle, a tough and confident racer who is the pride of the Great White North.
·       John Cleese (TV’s “Whitney,” “A Fish Called Wanda”) is the voice of Bulldog, the oldest and arguably wisest racer on the circuit.
·       Carlos Alazraqui (James Garcia on Comedy Central’s “Reno 911”) brings to life the intensely charming El Chupacabra, a racer with more dramatic flair than is recommended at high altitudes.  
·       Priyanka Chopra (“Barfi!”) voices the exotic, mysterious and ruthless Ishani, the reigning Pan-Asian champion from India.
·       Roger Craig Smith (Captain America in Disney XD’s “Marvel’s Avengers Assemble,” voice of Sonic The Hedgehog in “Wreck-It Ralph”) voices world champion racer Ripslinger—wings down, the biggest name in air racing—and he knows it.
·       Gabriel Iglesias (Comedy Central’s “Gabriel Iglesias Presents Stand-up Revolution”) provides the voices of both Ned and Zed, two not-so-sharp saboteurs who work for Ripslinger. 
·       Val Kilmer (“Batman Forever,” “Top Gun”) provides the voice of Bravo, a member of the Jolly Wrenches and a fan of air racing.
·       Anthony Edwards (TV’s “Zero Hour,” “Top Gun”) is the voice of Echo, a member of the Jolly Wrenches and a fan of air racing.
·       Colin Cowherd (ESPN) gives play-by-play coverage as Colin Cowling, an affable blimp and an eye-in-the-sky reporter for the Racing Sports Network.
·       Sinbad (Comedy Central’s “Where U Been?”) brings to life Roper, an irascible race official pitty full of sly remarks and colorful commentary.
·       Oliver Kalkofe (“Neues vom Wixxer”) provides the voice of meek German minicar Franz and his brazen airborne alter ego Fliegenhosen.
·       Brent Musburger (ESPN, ABC Sports) brings Brent Mustangburger, the excitable 1964½ Ford Mustang sports broadcasting icon, back to the big screen.

HAVE FUN!

 

Well, March is quickly coming to an end. Wow, already?!  We are fully into a total year here. Looking back a year and having it be here in the DC area, and not in Nevada or California is really weird. Good, but weird.  So, lets take a look at the fun!

The Cherry Blossoms – They were out early last year and clearly *ahem mother nature* it was much warmer last year.  This was also Brian’s first experience to what is now his most favorite place to be (as clearly stated on his About Me poster for Kindergarten), The Washington Monument.

 
 I don’t know that I’m going to brave them this year, or if there are even in blossoms out there to see (stupid snow and rain).  However, I did just discover that you can purchase grandstand seats to the Cherry Blossom Parade for a very reasonable price.  That is going on the list for next year. Something to know about me is that I am a huge huge HUUUUUGGGEEEEE fan of parades.

Link up, leave a comment!  I’ll be making the rounds!

Military Support Series *Veteran CareGiver*

 
Last week I had the amazing pleasure of hanging out with some great ladies at the Care Giver’s Resource Fair at Walter Reed.  I had never heard of Veteran Caregiver, so I knew I had to add their group to my list of resources to share with my amazing readers.  So lets hear a little bit more about this amazing group.
 The basics of it is this….what happens “AFTER”?  That seems to be a simple question, but in reality, for many veterans and Caregivers its the complete opposite of simple.  What do I/We do now?  That’s where Veteran Caregiver comes into play.  
This site is a bridge for caregivers and veterans alike. It is a safe place to air questions and frustrations on and offline, but we also provide individualized assistance when you’ve hit the wall. As a veteran or a caregiver of a veteran, your life may be significantly altered by injury, illness, or aging. If you’re feeling isolated or alone, want/need people around you who “get it”, and you’d benefit from networking with peers and professionals, community health and recovery resources, you’ve come to the only site of its kind. VeteranCaregiver is here to fill the need for acknowledgement, mentoring as only peers can do, and to provide accessible support from others who share or can address your challenges.- Linda Kreter -Founder & CEO
It is a virtual community that provides a connection.  With so much of this world “virual”, with social media being the way to go, I think this is a stupendous idea.  So many of my friends have been found and developed through social media.  Its like the key to the city for Military Spouses, especially those of us who have been situated in isolated areas as I was for so many years.
Simply go to Veteran Caregiver’s website and register to start!

Puccini Ties from Bows and Ties *review*

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Bows 'N Ties

It isn’t very often that I get to review items for the hubby; so when I received the chance to review something for him I jumped at it.  Puccini Ties, courtesy of Bows and Ties are beautiful ties.  Mr. Air Force approved of the quality and feel of the tie; but was kind of worrid about the color.

Rich Peacock and White Striped Tie 
When you look at it in the picture it really is an interesting color, and quite bright.  His initial reaction was not good.  He said that he would wear it for a picture (which needless to say I never took and then he left to do some traveling) and that was that.  But one day he came home with it on, paired with a white shirt and grey pants.

The picture I took makes it look slightly darker then it appears in the website photo.  I would say in real life its somewhere inbetween.  It really is a beautiful tie and they are very affordable, setting you back only $9.90.  While Mr. Air Force happens to be a grade-A tie snob I might have gotten away with these ties.  He probably won’t make a habit of stocking up on these ties, because I think breaking a tie snob of his ways might prove difficult. However if I wanted to get some ties for the boys to match Bows and Ties would be my first stop.  They have an extensive collection of boys ties, you can definitely accomplish the whole Daddy/son matching thing.   These are some of my favorites:
Light Green and White Kids TieStriped Silk Kids Tie Silver and WhiteLight Blue Silk Kids Tie 
They also have environmentally friendly and organic ties, for those that appreciate the green lifestyle.
Check out Bows and Ties.  I’m sure you can find what you’re looking for.  Thanks for stopping by!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

2. What is your favorite kind of flower to grow or receive?
I have grown Sunflowers and tulips and stuff….I love to receive Roses…I’m a classic romantic.  Although I love purple ones.  Last spring we grew a sunflower (my son did) and it was a lot of fun.  I want to do more this year.
3. What is your favorite nail polish color?
I’m really nail polish obessed!  Seriously.  Bright colors, classic colors, funky designs.  I paint my nails (toes and fingers) every week.

4. What is your favorite outdoor activity?
Being outside with my kids in our backyard is my favorite.  We have a fabulous backyard and a deck and I’m really excited for BBQs and having friends over.  Pulling out the kiddie pool and the slip n slide and experiencing Phillip outside this summer, fully mobile.  So fun.
5. Do you have any fun spring plans? Details! 🙂
When it definitely is Spring weather I want to take some day trips around the area.  We went to Williamsburg, but there’s so much I want to do.  Hubby won’t be around much so I’d really like to take advantage of some outdoor fun with him before it gets too humid around here.  I wish I had some amazing details to share, but solidifying details well in advance isn’t really how we roll around here.
Can’t wait to read everyone’s posts!  Thanks for stopping by!
