Something I like about this calendar as compared other cartoon calendars is that the cartoons are written and drawn by a variety of artists. It remains interesting and refreshing throughout the year while calendars by a single artist can become tedious.
But I am sad about an "improvement" introduced in the 2010 edition that destroys some utility of the calendar. I once used the back side of the sheets as notepaper. Now the back side of each sheet is taken up by "The Daily Extra" which is a wide-ranging variety of useless items, such as a "Notes for the Babysitter" form, a household hint for cleaning kitchen sponges, the number of dimples on a regulation golf ball, a list of traditional anniversary gifts, a money-saving tip (make a shopping list and stick to it), and other similar items. My notepaper has been ruined by this inane feature. I'm now shopping for a different calendar.
