Did You Know? - Easter 2014 - Join the fun.... We had an afternoon of laughs and giggles and ended with full tummies and 72 beautiful Easter Eggs! It's fun to be with family and share in these events which will last forever (We remember egg coloring from 50-60 years ago!)

Mr Duck was quite happy moving from lake to lake

Easter Day at Disneyland 2015 and Catal for dinner
The water was calm until they began to swim

Did You Know? - All ducks have highly waterproof feathers as a result of an intricate feather structure and a waxy coating that is spread on each feather while preening. A duck's feathers are so waterproof that even when the duck dives underwater, its downy underlayer of feathers will stay completely dry.

Fantastic day on the Mark Twain

Did You Know? - Traditional terms for soundings are a source for common expressions in the English language, notably "deep six" (a sounding of 6 fathoms). On the Mississippi River in the 1850s, the leadsmen also used old-fashioned words for some of the numbers; for example instead of "two" they would say "twain". Thus when the depth was two fathoms, they would call "by the mark twain!". The American writer Mark Twain, a former river pilot, likely took his pen name from this cry. The term lives on in today's world in echo sounding, the technique of using sonar to measure depth.

"What... You are switching to root beer floats?"

Easter Day at Disneyland 2015 and Catal for dinner
Yes indeed

Did You Know? - An ice cream soda or float (United States, United Kingdom, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa and East Asia), coke float (United Kingdom, Canada, New Zealand) or Snowball (New Zealand), or spider (Australia and New Zealand), is a beverage that consists of ice cream in either a soft drink or in a mixture of flavored syrup and carbonated water.

The ice cream soda was invented by Robert McCay Green in Philadelphia, PA, in 1874 during the sesquicentennial celebration. The traditional story is that, on a particularly hot day, Mr. Green ran out of cold ice for the flavored sodas he was selling and used vanilla ice cream from a neighboring vendor, thus inventing a new drink.

It's a Catal tradition!

Must be good... We got a double-thumbs-up from Nick

Did You Know? - The gesture's popularization in America is generally attributed to the practices of World War II pilots, who used the thumbs up to communicate with ground crews prior to take-off. This custom may have originated with the China-based Flying Tigers, who were among the first American flyers involved in WWII. The appreciative Chinese would say "挺好的" ("ting hao de"), meaning "very good," and gesture with a thumbs up, which in Chinese means "you're number one."
