So take a look at these past posts and check out the sidebar for other terrific topics and oodles of creative comments. And come back tomorrow because future fun is just a day away!
COMING SOON: We like to keep you guessing at what excitement we have in store! In other words - we have nearly no idea what to expect also, because like Marvel bronze age creators we are battling the Dreaded Deadline Doom! Never fear BitBA fan, we will pull it together and won't leave you unentertained!
But it is a good time to remind you that if you want to contribute a guest post, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Feel free to add your own recommendations in the comment section; Sunday is a day for sharing. Here are a couple we recommend.
Spring Sports: The NCAA Basketball Tournament is under way and as usual it is an exciting time. I particularly enjoy keeping an eye on the first 32 games and rooting for the underdogs along the way. Even if you are not an avid sports fan, join a bracket for some water cooler conversation. 4.5 Bronze Medallions. And we are just a couple of weeks away from baseball's opening day. Though I am a White Sox fan, it will be fun to watch the Cubs follow up last year. 5 Bronze Medallions. And for our friends across the pond, get ready for some cricket- coming soon! Perhaps there is a Pulled from the Pack in the works. What is your Spring time pastime?Board Games: Risk was always a classic. I can remember playing with family on countless summer nights, rolling the dice, moving my troops, and unfortunately rarely winning the global strategy game. Well over the years the folks at Hasbro have been licensing characters and storylines for various projects and special releases for their games. Recently I saw Risk: The Marvel Cinematic Universe. I think I am going to pick that up and give it a try. I give the classic Risk game 4 Bronze Medallions and I will give a report if I try a new version.
Food: At The Beaches and Cream Soda Shop at Walt Disney World, try the fully loaded multi-serving ice cream sundae called the "Kitchen Sink." Make sure you have a party of four and a large appetite for dessert as they put all kinds of sweet goodness in a small "sink" that they bring to your table. The ice cream is generally quite good at the shop, but the hot fudge and caramel is enticing. A variety of ice cream flavors, cookies, brownies, bananas, strawberries, and cherries - they don't miss a thing. It is truly a once in a lifetime tasting, especially if you are Bronze Agers like most of us. For a fun family experience 4 Bronze Medallions.
That's it for today. Have a great week! Cheers!
