When Walt Disney opened his ‘Magic Kingdom’ of Disneyland in 1955 he uttered these immortal words;
To all who come to this happy place; welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past…and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams and the hard facts that have created America…with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world.
Whilst our little blog probably doesn’t deserve such grandiose introductions, the spirit of that introduction rings true for us. This blog will be filled by our musings, as we sail the world in our (metaphorical) pea green boat. We’ll bring you things from history, stories from the present, and visions of the future yet to be. We are the owl, and the pussycat, and both our monikers (and the title of this blog) were inspired by the Edward Lear poem.
Either way, I hope you enjoy this little corner of the internet.
