  • In a world where movies tend to go big or go home, today’s audiences expect excellence in every venture to the big screen.

    That’s where movies like “Chasing Mavericks” fail. It’s not a blockbuster, but it’s not a flop either. It lives in that dangerous in-between that dooms films to a quick trip to DVD or downloadable media.

    It’s the true story of Jay Moriarity (Jonny Weston), a young man whose father left him as a child and grows up dreaming of surfing the big waves.

  • Tybalt hasn’t been himself lately.

    Our black Pomeranian has been out of sorts since his playmate, another black Pomeranian, named Nanook, had to be euthanized in July. Nanook’s health had declined rapidly and to the point he was in extreme pain.

    Since then, Tybalt’s behavior has been a little erratic and more than a little heartbreaking.

  • A pond is not just a pond, even if the cattle don’t keep its bottom packed tightly enough to hold water, even if brush fills its boundaries until nobody knows it was ever even there, nobody but you. It lives on, just as we all hope to do, in the memories of those who knew it best.
