So are you looking forward to seeing Disney Zootopia? Zootopia is an anthropomorphic city, peopled by animals. The hero is an eager beaver--erm bunny--rookie cop named Judy Hopps. All the characters have Dickensian names that reflect animal attributes and personality traits. Officer Hopps, in her pokey Little Tikes style squad car, teams up with oily con man Nick Wilde (a fox, why are foxes always portrayed as sly?) And a lady cop and a confidence trickster? It's complicated--don't judge. So showtime for Zootopia is March 4. But if that seems an unconscionably long time to wait, here are free printable Disney Zootopia coloring pages from Super Coloring Pages and zoology lesson extensions.

So did you see "Deadpool" which opened Feb. 12, 2016? So, what did you think of Ryan Reynolds as Marvel Comics X Men superhero turned villain?

Shame on nasty Ajax for disfiguring poor Wade Williams (and him a cancer patient at that!) But ya gotta love R-squared in tight red Kevlar. So enough schmoozing about Ryan Reynolds, superhero villains and men in tights. How about some free printable adult coloring pages of Deadpool?

The Catholic Lenten season begins each year with the Imposition of the Ashes on Ash Wednesday, which in the 2016 calendar will kick off very early on February 10. Lent starts a 40 day journey of fasting, corporal spiritual acts of mercy, spiritual pilgrimage and prayer. A Catholic tries to live, in a humble human way, in solidarity with the Lord Jesus, as he fasted in the desert for 40 days and made his final pilgrimage to Jerusalem. A Roman cross, torture and crucifixion awaited Him. But so did the glory of Easter, the Resurrection. Lent is a season for intense and deep personal and spiritual reflection.
