“Rocket Dog’s”Mel Roach, right, makes her first trip to the U.S. with, of course, the Frederator studio being her priority destination. Here, she hangs with Natasha Allegri, creator of Bee and PuppyCat. It was splendid to meet you in person after all these years, Mel.

* These slides come from a set that was heavily water damaged, only about 18 survived from the 71 in the set. Each slide was hand labeled and dated, it breaks my heart to find family photos like these damaged, forgotten, and sold at a flea market.
Sometimes life is boring. There are lots of ways to chase the doldrums away, but perhaps one of the most fun is to receive a punch in the face from a rainbow. All you have to do is find one of these natural phenomena willing to deliver the decisive blow.
