Disney Songs for Hand Washing

As flu season lingers and the coronavirus spreads, the CDC is reminding everyone to wash their hands for a good 20-30 seconds. Rather than just counting, singing a fun tune has been the hand washing trend as of late. But what Disney verses are in the recommended time range? Look no farther: I've made a [...]

Onward Movie Review

With Onward, Pixar once again finds a way to make us cry in public (thankfully movie theaters are dark!).
