• Pulse movie review: It's got grit


    Joel and Ethan Coen had a difficult task in winning audiences over when they remade a film that starred one of the most beloved actors in American cinema, John Wayne.

    Both versions of “True Grit” are taken from the novel written by Charles Portis, but any fan of the Western film genre will make a comparison to the 1969 film, which won Wayne his first and only Best Actor Oscar.

    The women’s group of my church, Radcliff Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), holds its annual church bazaar on the first Saturday in November.

  • Dash of Class: Recipes for sharing


    Two days before Christmas and all through the house,

    Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

    Thank heavens since we have lived in this house (37 years), we have never had a mouse (knock on wood).

    Things have begun to slow down here, the presents are all wrapped and in shopping bags depending on where they are going.

  • Breathe in Christmas


    Christmas decorating hasn’t been as exciting this year as in years past.

    The outdoor lighting has been minimized; it seemed more of a hassle than enjoyable. But part of this year's décor includes a few simple window candle lights.

    At night, I turn off the lights in the house and let the warm glow of the window lights and the lights on the Christmas trees fill my home.
