Cartwright Wins the Nextel Cup
Well…not quite yet, but this Sunday afternoon at California’s
Irwindale Speedway Ms. Cartwright will be one step closer
than the rest of us to that illustrious crown. Following a
day of training and rigorous testing, Nancy will have her
NASCAR driver’s license.
This is an honor, as you may know, shared by the elite (crazy)
few, who thirst for speed. And, now, the voice of our favorite,
spiky-headed ten-year-old joins that prestigious (insane)
Leading Nancy to the “promised land” will be
the driver of the #27 ARCA RE/MAX Series car, Kenton Gray.
These two recently joined forces when FMG Racing and Team
Kelly Racing founded a marketing alliance to promote Mr. Gray’s
competition car and Nancy’s animated series, The Kellys.
Kenton, who has been driving competitively since the age
of ten, will begin the training by giving Nancy some driving
tips, but you can be sure she’ll have a thing or two
to say after she gets her license.
It's All in the Wrist
The pomp-and-circumstance has been going on for a little
over 75 years. First established back in 1928, the Hollywood
Christmas parade is billed as "the largest celebrity
parade in the world!" In their time, Mary Pickford, Natalie
Wood, Eddie Cantor and the Three Stooges all rode in the parade.
This year, sitting proudly atop "The Way to Happiness"
float, their newly appointed international spokesperson, Nancy
Cartwright, smiled and waved her way through the streets of
Hollywood for the mile-and-a-half course. Several hundred
thousand people attend each year, sitting along Hollywood
and Sunset Boulevards.
Nancy apparently practiced the "beauty queen" wave
and by the time the parade started, she was ready to go. It
was broadcast Live on KTLA and continues being re-run throughout
the month of December, across the country.
Says Nancy, "The parade has been a Hollywood tradition
for so long that it has become a staple of the holiday diet.
It is an honor to be a part of it."

LOS ANGELES, CA – December 7, 2006 – SportsBlast,

and measurability of other sponsorship programs. [Read

Happy House - Kidsfaire 2006
October 7 and 8, Happy House hosted a The Way to Happiness
booth at Kidsfaire at the Orange County Fairgrounds. This
was the non-profit’s second consecutive year building
better families in Orange County.
Kidsfaire is an interactive environment designed to enrich
the lives of babies, children and families everywhere. Happy
House manned one of the hundreds of booths with one goal in
mind, bettering the lives of children and their families.
The Happy House team, with some much-needed help from OC
volunteers dedicated to getting The Way to Happiness broadly
into society, handed out 2,800 books.
The main attraction was a drawing table at which kids could
crayon their image of a Happy Family or just have fun coloring.
A Brief Journey to the Emerald Isle
Over a year ago, the University College of Dublin Law Society
invited Nancy over to Ireland to participate in their comedy
debate and have a little chat with the Society students.
While she couldn’t attend at that time, they kept at
it and a year later had another university, National University
of Ireland at Galway, Literary and Debating Society, join
them in bringing Nancy over for a little bi-coastal trip to

Both the UCD Law Society and the NUIG Lit & Deb Society
were incredibly gracious hosts, showing their guests around
the sites, taking in some authentic Irish music, the train
to the Irish National Stud in Kildare and even making the
ferry trip out to the island of Inisheer off the western coast,
all in-between college appearances.
her stay in Dublin, Nancy also made an appearance on the Late
Late show with Pat Kenny, the most watched show in Ireland,
which led to a number of very friendly but unforeseen recognitions
on the street for the rest of the week!
Overall it was a great time with some very bright and hospitable
students who taught
us that traditional Irish pubs do still exist, sing-alongs
are not uncommon, the Claddagh ring originates in Galway,
and “Irish blokes don’t dance.”
Thanks to our lovely hosts and everyone we met along the
House joined other community minded groups and thousands of
families for the annual Spooktacular Celebration in Northridge,
Hosted by the Northridge Community Hospital and the North
Valley Regional Chamber of Commerce, the fair covers two entire
city blocks and features inflatable bouncing haunted houses,
live music, comedy kettle corn, masks, gymnastics, health
testing booths, and dozens of other exhibits all designed
to offer some light-hearted entertainments to families.
