I know, I know. A lot
of you have been patiently waiting to hear about who won JHM's most recent
trivia contest. And I apologize for the delay. But I have been traveling a lot
over the past month or so. And between covering the opening of Cars Land at
Disney California Adventure, "Brave" 's world premiere in Hollywood, "Despicable
Me: Minion Mayhem" at Universal Studios Florida, Disney Consumer Products'
Holiday Showcase in New York City and Comic-Con International in San Diego (not
to mention touring / visiting LEGOLAND California, LEGOLAND Florida, SeaWorld
San Diego, Discovery Cove at SeaWorld Orlando, the Gaylord Palms Resort and
Convention Center, Disney's Art of Animation Resort), it's been a very busy,
crazy time for me.
Anyway ... After a quick stop at Universal Studios Hollywood
this morning (to experience that theme park's new "Transformers The Ride
3D" attraction) and then a drive up to Simi Valley to check out that
recent "D23 presents Treasures of the Disney Archives" exhibit at the
Ronald Reagan Presidential Library & Museum, I finally fly home to New Hampshire
tomorrow and then start turning all this great new, raw material into fun,
informative articles for JHM readers.

As you may have noticed, there are 23 questions in this
trivia contest. Well, there's a good reason for that. In honor of JHM's biggest
trivia contest ever, D23 -- The Official Disney Fan Club -- has contributed the
biggest prize we've ever offered. Which is the chance to win a pair of tickets
to D23's Destination D: 75 Years of Disney Animated Features event that'll be
held at the Disneyland Hotel on August 11th & 12th.
If you'd like to compete in this week's JHM trivia contest,
please send your answers along to firstname.lastname@example.org. More to the point,
all entries must be received by 12 midnight ET on Thursday, July 26th / Friday
July 27th in order to qualify. And the winner of Trivia Contest No. 7 (who will be randomly selected from all of
the correct entries that come in over the next eleven days) will be announced
here on this site next Friday morning.
I'd enter the contest, Jim, but I don't know if I could bear it if I lost. The competition's sure to be pretty grizzly. (Rimshot)
