Fact of the Day: King and Queen of Ireland

King Henry II of England was made Lord of Ireland instead of King as the Pope had granted him this "honor" officially despite an invasion through force made it so regardless. When King Henry VIII broke away from the Catholic Church he made himself officially king instead of lord when it came to Ireland. When his Catholic daughter Mary took the throne, the Pope had no issues recognizing her as Queen of Ireland and her husband Phillip as King of Ireland instead of Lady and Lord.

Photo: Big Peep

This was one of the rare occasions where I had more interest in a stuffed animal than Daisy did. We saw this in the Easter section, I thought it was neat that they made them based on the popular Peeps candy. A better questions is why isn't there a giant edible peep yet? 

Arms (Nintendo Switch) Review

When I first heard of Arms, I thought about the Wii era of gimmicky games like Wii Sports or Wii Play. My excitement for Arms was very... non-existent before it came out. Then I heard that it was actually quite a good game. Not quite as good as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild or Super Mario Odyssey, but one of the Nintendo Switch's more notable games. It's also by Nintendo themselves, so it's not like some 3rd party developer got lucky with this one. 

Fact of the Day: Australian Squirrels

While native to Africa, Europe, Asia, and the Americas, squirrels were never native to Australia but they were eventually introduced to the continent.

Things I Like: MegaDragonBowser (Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle)

 Bowser technically isn't' a bad guy in the game, but this faux dragon thing fuses with the great demon turtle king after he is defeated.
