Haunted Mansion Holiday - Disneyland - 09.24.16 (1st Ride)

Well it's that time of year when the Disney Parks start getting into the Halloween mood. And one of my favorite parts about Halloween time is when the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland gets its Jack Skellington over-lay. Known better as Haunted Mansion Holiday, the attraction combines the classic Gothic feel of Haunted Mansion and adds the whimsy spooky fun from The Nightmare Before Christmas film. In 2016, a new animatronic figure of Sally was added to the festivities. She was a much welcomed addition to the attraction. When I visited last year, I rode Haunted Mansion Holiday over and over and over. It's without question one of my favorite rides during the Disneyland Halloween and Christmas seasons. So here is video of my 1st ride on Haunted Mansion Holiday from September 24th 2016. ENJOY!!!

Madonna Music Monday - Who's That Girl Tour - July 31st 1987

Today is a very special day. Today marks the 30th anniversary of the 1st concert I ever attended. And that concert was the Chicago stop of Madonna's 1987 Who's That Girl World Tour. On a warm Friday night, my cousin and I headed to Chicago's Soldier Field football stadium. This is where my admiration for Madonna was cemented. Before this concert, I was a big Madonna fan. I was listening to her albums and watching her videos on MTV. But it wasn't until seeing Madonna LIVE in concert did I know that I would become a life-long fan. I have seen Madonna on every tour since 1987, except for The Girlie Show Tour which did not come thru Chicago. And I will continue to see Madonna in concert as long as she keeps performing. So to celebrate this milestone I have selected a few videos of Madonna performing on this tour. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed them these last 30 years!!! #QueenOfPop
