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.
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!
