Number of blogs: 361 --- Total pledges: 117,027.69

Good numbers. They only tell a small fraction of the story.

Behind every blog is a bunch of people who can (soon) proudly say "I DID THIS".

Behind every dollar are fabulous sponsors.

Behind it all is the idea we can make the world a little bit better today.

Not tomorrow.

Not sometime.

Today.




The contest earlier had only one entrant, who identified a large number of movies that used that Amusement Park as a backdrop. For the record, that is the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk in Santa Cruz, CA. I used to live near there.

Quoting the winner From (http://www.beachboardwalk.com/03_press_giantdipper.html):

Major motion pictures featuring the Giant Dipper include “Sting II,” “The Lost Boys,” “Dangerous Minds,” and Clint Eastwood’s “Sudden Impact,” as well as numerous television productions.


I actually didn't know some of them. However "The Lost Boys" and "Sudden Impact" always leap to mind when I think of movies filmed there.




COMING UP NEXT ON MOST OF THESE CBS STATIONS - POST FORTY EIGHT !!!!!!!!

and after that... BED!

I am fiarly sure I remember one particularly good Columbo mystery that featured the park and Patrick McGoohan (sp?).....
BTW - Good Job!
