Season Eight Of “My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic” Premieres March 24 On Discovery Family

As I’ve done a lot over the past couple of years, I am continuing to share the alerts from the media resources behind some incredible toy companies in the hope that I spark all of our friends with kids of a certain age and of course those who just happen to find us. With that said here is the latest scoop from the Hasbro side of the fence regarding a program called “My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic”. Check it out.

The Press Release:
Calling everypony (and creature) in Equestria — Twilight Sparkle’s School of Friendship is in session! On Saturday, March 24 at 11:30a/10:30c, Discovery Family premieres the eighth season of MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC with 26 half hour episodes complete with seven original songs, new characters and tons of friendship! New episodes of the Hasbro Studios’ produced animated series will also stream live and on demand on Discovery Family GO, the network’s TV Everywhere app.

Following the events of “My Little Pony: The Movie,” in the back-to-back season premiere episodes titled “School Daze Part 1” and “School Daze Part 2,” the Mane 6 discovers that the Friendship Map has expanded to show the world outside Equestria. Through two exciting original songs, Twilight Sparkle learns that friendship needs to spread beyond the limits of the kingdom and decides to open her very own School of Friendship. But things come to a head when the new non-pony students ditch class on Friends and Family day, putting the entire school in jeopardy!

This season, viewers will witness major milestones featuring the introduction of Starlight Glimmer’s parents, Princess Celestia’s big acting debut and Spike’s journey to adulthood — getting his wings. Additionally, the Mane 6’s Twilight Sparkle, Rarity, Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy are accompanied by six new creatures including Ocellus the Changeling, Silverstream the Hippogriff/Seapony, Smolder the Dragon, Gallus the Griffin, Yona the Yak and Sandbar the Pony, joining them on epic adventures throughout new and familiar lands such as Mount Aris, Everfree Forest, Las Pegasus and more.

Happy National Hot Sauce Day 2018

You’ll have to forgive me for the late wish on this most auspicious of celebrations since I didn’t actually even know it existed until just a little while earlier this morning. With that said, I wanted to wish you all a very “Happy National Hot Sauce Day”. Isn’t it funny how everything seems to have a holiday of its own nowadays? I don’t mind this one since its more playful than anything else and helps support those concoctions that help set aflame the most fiery of palates. In honor of the occasion I’ve lined up some of my favorite flavors of hot sauce. All of the ones in the photo right below are the High River Sauces stuff. Some of these are hotter than the others but there is such flavor to them all which is a bonus.
