I am back, after three weeks in Brazil. My wife, Rita, and myself spent quite a bit of time on the Amazon river, in the city of Belem, Marajo island and Algodoal island, then stayed a week enjoying the cultural and culinary life of Sao Paulo.

I did manage, however, to keep up from time to time with the Disney related news, some wonderful, some absolutely tragic. Before jumping to those news, here is a summary of the best content that was published about Disney history during those last three weeks:
