"Autism Insights" has kindly nominated me for an award, the Arte Y Pico Award.
Upon winning this award you are tasked with the following rules…
1. You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also for contributing to the blogging community, no matter what language
2. Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.
3. Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.
4. Award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of “Arte y Pico” blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award. "arteypico.blogspot.com"
Since my language skills are poor, I find I'm obsessing on the 'art' bit, therefore first up would be "Karen" over at "Art in the Garage." If I were English, I would say that she is a real arty farty type, but as that is unlikely to translate that accurately over here in the States, I should probably say that her creative talents are inspirational! That would be the first lesson of the day = if someone says you're arty farty, it's a compliment.
Then there's "Tara" over at ""TLCIllustration"
She's more of an airy fairy type, but she can certainly be a "little devil" sometimes.
Then we can move on to "Louceel" for a jolly good yarn or two, or alternatively we can take a peek at his palatte and take in a "piccie."
That's all for now.

Yes I know that everyone else on the planet has reviewed it and seen it already, but some of us have to wait until the dust has settled and the Theatre house is empty before we venture forth.
How I love empty theatres!
How I love Pixar.
There are lots of great things about this film for smallish people. For my smallish people the best thing was how there were very few words. The first half [?] was word free. The exaggerated noises, expressions and 'body language' made it easy to 'read' and understand.
When the people come along, words are used and conversations take place but I think it would be possible to turn off the sound and still understand the story as it's caked in visual cues.
Although Pixar is now Disney, or rather Disney's gobbled up Pixar, fortunately the movie isn't drowned in Disney mush.
I am probably biased by the environmental theme.
Warning:- some children may find that subsequently, robot noises and gesture are preferable to word production.
