  • Here we are at the end of the month again and it’s time for requested and shared recipes.

  • There’s one essential component to a fun snow day — getting out to play in the snow.


    Outdoor fun can go beyond making a snow man, although it is a must. Some stores now sell snowman making kits that help make the perfect snowman. You can also build a snow man old-school style with a carrot from the fridge and some hats, buttons and scarves found in the house.

    Many people also build igloos, snow forts or, if you are a Superman fan, a Fortress of Solitude.

  • I’ll admit. I went into “Arthur Christmas” in a bad mood because I really wanted to review Martin Scorsese’s “Hugo” and it wasn’t shown locally.
