  • A spectacle that's far from spectacular

    Take along a lot of crackers if you go to see “The Three Musketeers.” It’s very cheesy.

    Most modern productions of the Alexandre Dumas’ classic tale present it in a similar way.

  • Lessons from George McFly

    A teen forces himself out of bed on Monday morning. A new week at school has begun. He gets dressed and puts on the new jacket his mom bought him over the weekend. She knew something was wrong but he wouldn’t talk about it.

    He looks in the mirror, a slight smile on his face hoping today would be better. He grabs his bag and talks himself into stepping out the door.

  • Tending to the Prince of Pomerania

    About this time last year our oldest dog, 16-year-old Pomeranian Nanook, had to be taken to the vet. He was given medication for his arthritis.

    The year before, about the same time of year, the vet had discovered extensive arthritis in Nanook’s back legs. He had quit using one of his hind legs and whimpered a lot. He got a cortisone shot and some medication. After a week or so he was much better, but he had medication to take as needed.

  • A year for the birds

    About halfway through the film “The Big Year” I asked myself “are birders really this competitive with their bird sightings?” A quick Google search gave me the answer. Yes.

    The quest to document sightings of the most species of birds really happens each year and sometimes it gets quite competitive. The film is based on a book by Mark Obmascik that shares the story of three individuals on the quest. As it says in the beginning, the film is based on a true story, only the facts were changed.
