  • As I look back on 2011, there are many things to be thankful for.

    Some of them are the usual suspects: health, food, clothing and all the other basics. Some things I am thankful for are silly, like Diet Coke and Italian food. Some are sweet, like another year with my aging Lab, Boo.

    One event in 2011 made saying “I’m thankful” seem almost a trite expression. It was something that made being grateful more than just words expressed. It was a state of being that overwhelmed me to my very core.

  • Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie and Animal are back with the whole Muppet crew to entertain the children of the fans who fell in love with them so long ago.

Along for the ride is Gary’s longtime girlfriend, Mary, played by Amy Adams (“The Fighter”), who just wants a nice dinner and some alone time on their anniversary.
