With “Frozen” being the smash hit that took over the world, you can bet princesses will continue their popularity with girls. Without a new twist in sight, Disney’s 2015 “Cinderella,” stays true to an old story while remaining vibrant.

Happy St. Patrick's Day from Kermit

Fun facts:

In 2012 34.1 million U.S. residents claimed Irish ancestry. This number was more than seven times the population of Ireland itself (4.6 million). Irish was the nation’s second most frequently reported ancestry, trailing only German.

There are 16 places in the United States that share the name Dublin, including nearby to me Dublin, California with a population of 47,156.
