My first trip to Disneyland

Earlier this month I was finally roped into our first trip to Disneyland.  While incredibly exciting for my three daughters, I was dreading the experience for myself.  After all, what could Disneyland offer a grown man who happens to dislike amusement park rides!

I could not have been more wrong.

The end of an era at Screenlife

Earlier this year, Screenlife announced it would be shutting down its operations. Makers of the popular “Scene It” board games, Screenlife was an important fixture in the North American market.

A brief history on Screenlife. The company released to original “Scene It” game back in 2002. Adding DVD technology into a board game format was new and exciting. With slick production value and excellent marketing, the game was an instant hit. Entertainment behemoth Paramount Pictures purchased Screenlife in 2008.

Time to enter the 21st Century

I’ve always been a technophobe. Programming the date and time into my VCR has thus far eluded me. And yes, I still own a VCR.

But what the heck… we make board games and jigsaw puzzles for a living. It is a great industry for us technology-challenged Neanderthals.

But I can acknowledge that the Internet has changed how we do business. The exchange of ideas, the access to vast amounts of information, and the speed at which this can be accomplished is what makes the Internet such a powerful tool.
