The more things change…the more they stay the same.  There was a time in the United States when African Americans were seen as property instead of human beings.  A time when the northern states and the southern ones disagreed about slave ownership which ultimately led to war.  There are some who still hold these beliefs today,...

"Remember, remember, the Fifth of November, the Gunpowder Treason and Plot. I know of no reason why the Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot".  So begins the John Milton (Paradise Lost) poem about the Gunpowder Plot of 1605, when Guy Fawkes, along with a group of fellow soldiers, decided to assassinate King James I by blowing up P...

It's hard to believe it has only been seven years since we were introduced to Elsa (Idina Menzel; Rent), Anna (Kristen Bell; The Good Place), Kristoff (Jonathan Groff; Hamilton: An American Musical), and Olaf (Josh Gad; Beauty and the Beast) in Disney's blockbuster, animated film, Frozen.  In a short time, the franchise has grown to epic propo...

When one hears the name Roald Dahl, one generally thinks of the collection of children's stories he wrote.  Dahl usually made the protagonists children with adults portrayed as villains.  However, there always seemed to be one adult who was a kind soul that helped the children defeat their enemies.Since Dahl was such a descriptive wr...

While Shirley Jackson (The Lottery) may have lacked quantity in her writing, she certainly made up for it in quality.  Regarded as a prolific author, she created images that terrified her readers while conversely drawing them into her made-up worlds.  In 1959 Viking published Jackson's novel, The Haunting of Hill House, which is consi...

Back in the early 2000s, AMC (originally American Movie Classics) aired mostly…you guessed it, old movies. However, by the latter half of the decade, they were experimenting with some original programming.  In January of 2008, they furthered their ambition by airing a new show called Breaking Bad.  It immediately generated "bu...

If you were a teenager in the 1980's you should definitely remember what movie this line is from…" Are you telling me you built a time machine…out of a DeLorean?"  Amazingly, it was thirty-five years ago when the first Back to the Future movie screeched into theaters at 88 miles per hour.  Four years later the ...

In the last thirty years, advances in technology have enhanced the lives of most of the world's population in various ways.  We now have faster and better ways to communicate, more advanced forms of transportation, and medical science has been able to find cures or treatments for many ailments, so people are now living longer than in the p...

There is a saying that starts, "the love of a good woman…", which makes one wonder what is it that love could do. Could it heal a sick person?  Could it turn someone evil? Or perhaps it could make someone change their illegal ways and want to become a better person.  The thought is a noble one, but could it really happen?... Read More

With the ever-growing population and advancements in medicine, people tend to live longer than they did in the past.  This has created the need for more and more nursing homes and assisted living facilities, which seem to spring up constantly (especially where I live in South Florida).  It is rarer these days to find multiple generations ...
