I don't think It's changed since last year, not even the background!

Web / Game Dev, occasionally finishes off coding games also!

I think mine's the same as last year too. It's not actually my retriever Womble, but she did look like that when she was a puppy and she loved leaves and feathers at that age.

I stopped using windows a couple of months ago. This is from the ipad pro.

The background is from my own generator : https://cromdesi.home.xs4all.nl/html5/generatorstone6/MonkeyGame.html

I have been meaning to update mine since this movie came out, so finally updated my desktop tonight. So, now it is this. But the old one really makes me happy, so not sure how long this will stick around.

I keep meaning to watch Jungle Cruise. I downloaded it a while back. Most reviews felt it was meh, but it looks fun.

Have you watched the Jumaji reboots? They're really good. My whole family thoroughly enjoyed them. Love the original too.

Reviews for this one only have credibility for me if the reviewer is a fan of the ride and of Disney World in general. If they are not, they are immediately biased against the movie.

The ride is campy and makes no apologies for it. The movie is an over the top adventure, many campy elements (which keeps the kid's attention) and is a really good tribute to the ride. Always wondered how in the heck they were going to pull the movie off, but they did. Good, flick, and will hold your attention and is reminiscent of 60s and 70s era Disney movies for the humor/campy elements. Has elements of Indiana Jones, and other classic adventure movies. And has a fairly good story line.

It will never be as popular as the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, but the job they did on translating the ride into a movie is just as good as they did for Pirates of the Caribbean. Just based on different types of rides and Jungle Cruise ride never took itself seriously. IMHO, the Pirates of the Caribbean ride was too dark for smaller children. Jungle Cruise ride was perfect for all age groups.

I went on a Jungle Cruise type ride wjhen I was a kid, in Porthcawl, South Wales. At the entrance was a sign stating "Watch out for the killer bees!!!!";I was bricking it, terrified I'd get stung, only to find at the end of the ride there were loads of letter B's on springy sticks wobbling around. That made 7 year old me so happy (and relieved)! If the movie does anythting like that, then that'll do me!
