Movie Review: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire – Remember who the enemy is
11/30/2013 10:02:03 AM
I can’t tell you how much I appreciate movies that have been adapted from books. Not only do they give me something to consider reading myself, they also open up reading to a whole new audience. Just the other day, I had a friend who watched Catching Fire with her friends and is now considerin..
WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE, OR MUSICAL STYLES OVER THE CENTURIES
03/25/2013 14:56:25 PM
I have been roaming this planet for nigh on 60 years and have yet to feel that anything is really too much, or I am too old to grasp the latest in culture or technology. My parents were very much into trying out with somewhat middling success, old stone-age computer games, PONG, or TANK, or whateve..

In the company of friends
No one wants to be alone. You may want some "alone time," that's different. Sharing what you have, not just things but yourself too, can be a scary proposition. The Sunday Night Blog looks at this through examples from the Broadway musical, Company: h..
Memoirs of An A Cappella Sleepover

This past weekend, I thought I was in heaven.
I started to write about the experience:
"Right now there are at least 12 male voices echoing in my basement (more are due to arrive). Ranging in tone, volume and expression, the voices laugh, exclaim, sing and hum. This group of young men is playing fo..
Ovation: Happy Birthday Emily Deschanel.

Several years ago, my folks introduced me to the magical world of Netflix. They had been enjoying the service for some time, watching old television series and obscure movies via the internet by using their DVD player. They were excited to share their new found fun with us and introduced..
Ovation: Ohio University Marching 110's "Gangnam Style".
09/25/2012 09:11:12 AM
I was a High School Band Geek and I loved every minute of it. Rehearsals, concerts, solo contests and parades consumed my life. Hours devoted to practice, taking and teaching private lessons took the place of a social life. I loved it all with one exception … football half-t..
Ovation: The Inspirational Dancing Of Jean Sok.
09/13/2012 09:44:50 AM
I can’t dance. I know and understand how it’s done but I’m simply not coordinated, determined, athletic, patient, artistic or motivated enough to make it happen. Even though my classmates and I learned to square dance in middle school on rainy days when we couldn’..

I'm very pleased to introduce my guest today. If you don't already know Nancy, you can find out more about her at her blog. What I've learned is that besides looking way too young to have a son in college, she's a gentle, thoughtful, and generous human being with a talent for writing suspense. Wh..
Enough with the "rape" thing, already!
07/12/2012 11:29:55 AM
I was going to do this yesterday, but I thought it best to calm down first. In the last month, all I've heard about is "rape" and frankly, I'm getting sick of it. I wish it was about the issue of rape in and on itself, some thesis that would make me more socially aware, but no; all we've been de..
