“Right after the war broke out gardening for pleasure was out of the question, and later on in the Winter of Hunger (when supply lines to Holland were cut off), there was no food. On May 5th 1945, Holland was liberated – one day after my mother’s birthday, so really, after the most terrible winter of her life, the liberation came with the spring, and with spring came food.” -Luca Dotti, on Audrey Hepburn the gardener
Did you know, seeing as there are no primates native to Australia, bats are our closest animal relative?
Also, Old World fruit bats (megabats) i.e. our grey-headed flying fox - the largest Australian bat, is hypothesised to be a descendant of an early primate.

This has to be the most beautiful celebration on the planet.
Ignoring fame was my rebellion, in a funny way. I was insistent on being normal and doing normal things. It probably wasn’t advisable to go to college in America and room with a complete stranger. And it probably wasn’t wise to share a bathroom with eight other people in a coed dorm. Looking back, that was crazy.
“Value yourself. The only people who appreciate a doormat are people with dirty shoes.”

A brief history of Critter Country: by themeparkzach & zip-a-dee-lady.
The Country Bear Jamboree opened at WDW in 71’. It was really popular (this is before any mountains existed in the Magic Kingdom). The Country Bear Jamboree would get lines of up to 2 hours.
Well Disneyland wanted to capitalize on the success of the Florida show. They opted to build a dual theater version doubling the capacity of the attraction. Unfortunately as with most shows it lost popularity very quickly with the large amount of repeat visitors at Disneyland. They put it in it’s own new land and called it Bear Country.
Disney tried to revive it several times with specials like the Country Bear Vacation Hoedown and the Christmas Special (Fun fact they originally planned to have a Valentines Day Special and a Halloween Special too). But the efforts never really worked.
That’s when Disney started looking at new ways to draw people into the land, so that’s when that whole story of the Log Flume comes into play. Eventually they build Splash hoping that again it may revive some popularity to the bears, still doesn’t really work. Since Splash wasn’t themed to bears they renamed the land Critter Country.
Sadly under the incompetent management in the early 2000’s it was decided to replace the theaters with the Winnie the Pooh ride.
September 21, 2001 the Country Bear Jamboree played its final show.
Bear Country was renamed Critter Country when Splash opened in 1989.
Before that, it was the Indian Village, which can be seen while on the Mark Twain, Sailing Ship Columbia, and Davey Crocket’s Canoes.
Today, the Indian Village isn’t considered “politically correct”.
During the construction of Splash Mountain, a few obstacles were made: They couldn’t have Uncle Remus on the ride and Brer Rabbit has to be captured with something that wasn’t a “tar baby” (a racist term for a black person).
The brilliant minds of the designers decided to eliminate Uncle Remus from the entire ride and have Brer Rabbit be caught in a beehive.
You’re so great, I love you!
“The average personality reshapes frequently, every few years even our bodies undergo a complete overhaul - desirable or not, it is a natural thing that we should change. All right, here were two people who never would change. That is what Mildred Grossman had in common with Holly Golightly. They would never change because they’d been given their character too soon; which, like sudden riches, leads to a lack of proportion: the one had splurged herself into a top-heavy realist, the other a lopsided romantic.” —Truman Capote, Breakfast at Tiffany’s: A Short Novel and Three Stories
