Across The Board Cuts to Federal Programs Leaves Local ‘Meals On Wheels’ Unable to Deliver to Some

Doing what I do for a living, which is keeping up with the news and such, I read a lot of well, stupid things, which happen in government, however, this really makes me mad. The federal cuts that are causing some many problems are causing Spectrum Generation to create a waiting list for Meals On Wheels. Now, it has been a BIG point of with Spectrum Generation that they did NOT make seniors wait for this service.

‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ Review

I stand before you, humbled, and tasked with explaining, in comprehensible terms, just what the heck 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' is all about. Attaining comprehensibility, however, is a chore the filmmakers didn't wrestle with, doubling-down on pure adrenaline and big movie star charisma. It's a risky move and sometimes it works. Sadly, this is not one of those cases.

While there are chuckles to be had (I mean, that Cobra Commander helmet is just too incredible to dismiss) there isn't enough whiz-bang in this film to fully deflect the utter lack of a story or absence of intriguing characters. It is, surprisingly, the lesser of the two 'G.I. Joe' films, with Stephen Sommers' 2009 'The Rise of Cobra' featuring much more team spirit, pep and fun.

‘The Host’ Review

Cartesian Dualism lights up the screen in 'The Host' as Saoirse Ronan's alien-possessed soul loudly thinks, "don't you smile at him! Uch! You are not goin' there!" Then she leans to smooch #TeamIan. And who said there was nothing deep happening in mainstream cinema?

Maggie Rose, ‘Cut to Impress’ – Album Review

'Cut to Impress' by Maggie Rose is one of the more entertaining listens of the year. Fans will either embrace the dark, swampy sound the singer creates with producer James Stroud, or they'll be terrified by her bad girl persona and downright chilling stories. The album is no teddy bear.

Thank you card from Sarah Jewett from Mahalas Day Spa

The Power of Thank-You, It Still Means a Lot

Being thankful is never out of style. Yesterday, I was in Al Certified Auto Repair in Augusta. I just happened to be there as Jon Leach, the Executive Director of the Children’s Center in Augusta, stopped in to give ACAR a thank-you for supporting the recent Chili-Chowder Challenge. Then today I found wonderful card in my mailbox.

Yes, that is me, hanging out with Stephen King, back in the day, at a party at his Bangor, Maine home. Gosh, how much younger we both looked.

Gun Violence is Addressed by Stephen King

I love Stephen King. Not so much for his writings (I will address my issues on his books later in this note), but for who he is. He is a man of great personal success and a man who has shown he still has a heart, is grounded, compassionate and gees, kinda reasonable.  Today I apply those descriptions of Mr. King on the issue of gun control.

Potato Chip Day Held on March 14th

Potato Chip day was held March 14 to celebrate the chip that got its start as the Saratoga Chip. The name comes from Saratoga, New York, where at a lodge there the first chips were made. As the story goes, Native American chef, George Crum, made the first chips after a customer sent back his potatoes complaining they were too thick. The chef being temperamental was angry at the customer and decided to slice the potatoes extremely thin and fry them to teach the customer a lesson.

Studying and Getting Ready To Pick My NCAA Brackets

I’m getting ready to pick my brackets for the NCAA championship and it is tough this year. Normally there is a team that sticks out as a favorite to win it all, but this year too many of the top teams have lost games they should have won. Throughout the year when a team reached the #1 position in the pools, they lost that week. Indiana was able to hang on to the top spot for 4 weeks in a row but they eventually fell.
