-- Walter Elias Walt Disney (December 5, 1901 – December 15, 1966) was an American film producer, director, screenwriter, voice actor, animator, entrepreneur, entertainer, international icon, and philanthropist. Disney is famous for his influence in the field of entertainment during the 20th century.
Read: Walt Disney: The Triumph of the American Imagination
-- Walt Disney was a true visionary whose desire for escape, iron determination and obsessive perfectionism transformed animation from a novelty to an art form, first with Mickey Mouse and then with his feature films–most notably Snow White, Fantasia, and Bambi. In his superb biography, Neal Gabler shows us how, over the course of two decades, Disney revolutionized the entertainment industry. In a way unprecedented and later widely imitated, he built a synergistic empire combining film, television, theme parks, music, book publishing, and merchandise. Walt Disney is a revelation of both the work and the man–of both the remarkable accomplishment and the hidden life.

Bathtub Party Day
- Almost everyone nowadays takes showers, so here's a day to recall some of the warm-water luxuries of days gone by. Draw yourself a tub full of warm water. Add a few bath oil beads, and Voila! You're ready to hop in and soak in the bathtub. Ahh, how soothing and relaxing!

Avoid the traffic jams and packed public transport by riding a bicycle instead.
