I received an automated e-mail from with the annual stats for my personal blog. It’s fascinating to know that visitors from 39 different countries came to check out my blog! Below is a link to review the full stats. Not bad for a first year!

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner can carry about 250 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,300 times in 2012. If it were a Dreamliner, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.

Tu as touché nos vies.
Tu as touché nos coeurs.
Nous t’aimons.
Repose en paix, papa.

I came across this documentary teaser. Landfill Harmonic is an upcoming feature-length documentary about a remarkable musical orchestra in Paraguay, where the musicians play instruments made from trash. It is about people transforming trash into music; about love, courage and creativity. Wow.

Bon. Ça l’air que notre première tempête de neige officielle va débarquer chez nous cette nuit. Un p’tit 10 cm environ (avec un peu de pluie aussi). Je suis prêt. Walter aussi. Vous vous demandez c’est qui Walter? C’est notre souffleuse à neige. Ok, ok, je sais qu’on dit “une souffleuse”, mais c’est Walter pareil. Depuis quelques années déjà, il ne fait qu’une bouchée de la neige. J’ai fait son changement d’huile et je l’ai démarré ce soir, question de le préparer mentalement à ce qui l’attend sans doute demain matin.

Ma fille Chloé a perdu une dent hier. Elle était très excitée de la mettre sous son oreiller avant d’aller faire dodo. Voici la surprise qu’elle a eu ce matin en se réveillant!
Elle était vraiment très fière d’expliquer à sa maman que la Fée des Dents était en vacances cette semaine!

I’ve got goose bumps just by watching the trailer.

And here’s another good trailer:

Darn, I have to wait until May 2013 to see the movie.

DolphinTaleA heartwarming tale based on a true story. After getting tangled in a crab trap, an injured female dolphin is rescued. During its convalescence, an amazingly strong friendship develops between the dolphin and a young boy.

This is a very nice family movie you will enjoy (some parts are tear-jerking!) I invite you to watch the trailer below. Oh, and if you want to see Winter (the dolphin) at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, you may do so at (there are several web cams).
