George eating an Eclair out of the Garbage
December is going to see some exciting new films hit the theater. It’ll be interesting to watch how they all fare. The obvious success story we can probably bet on is Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Pre-release tracking already has the film opening at more than $130 million dollars, according to folks at Variety. Passengers and Assassin’s Creed are less likely to match Disney’s Star Wars, but they are sure to have dedicated fans. Jennifer Lawrence is already an iconic actress with some memorable rolls, matched with the always hilarious Chris Pratt. Their turn in Passengers may prove critical and financial gold. Michael Fassbender has clout in his own right with a string of successful films. Based off the uneven quality of games, will fans of the original source material in Assassin’s Creed flock to the theaters in support? Is there even enough of a fan base or appeal to wider…

I had a minute of free time and so I decided to watch some TV. Sitting, minding my own business, I came across the Ellen show. I thought why not have a look. That’s always fun.
Wrong! It just aggravated me. There she was, Kendall Jenner, promoting her and her sister’s new book, discussing their clothing line and make-up line, and modelling, and family drama, and social accounts, and the diets and exercises only they know, and the nature’s law that enables them to move the pounds from their whole body to their asses only. And blah blah blah.
It made me upset to think about the way the entertainment business is being run these days. Rare people care about quality of the work. They just want money and lots of it.
I mean, come on! Authors who are good and have written a great and interesting novel…

The modern society has designated blue color for boys and pink for girls.Period.
Little did I realize before having children that these colors go beyond the dresses; They manifest themselves as body images, personalities, mannerisms and the entire outlook for the life.
I grapple with this color issue in everyday life while raising my boys. For one, I want them to be part of the society where they can go freely and select ‘pink’ if this is the hue they desire without the fear of, ‘What others will think?’, But we are not there yet.
I had overheard several examples when children teased the kid for selection of another gender color; this is mostly true for boys because-
'Girls can wear blue, but boys cannot wear pink.'
The above is the statement quoted by a salesman when I and my hubby were crib shopping for our first child.

It’s start of the holiday season, and just coming off of the bazillion Thanksgiving posts from grateful people, we are now inundated with posts of people’s decorated Christmas trees.
I, for one, boycott decorating for Christmas until the first weekend in December. I say “boycott” with love and affection because I just can’t enjoy one holiday by rushing into another. And truthfully, I still haven’t put away all my dishes from Thanksgiving yet, so I’m not ready to make another mess in my home without cleaning up from the one I already have right in front of me.
And besides, there’s still ONE more unnamed holiday event that I need to get through before putting up the tree and lights. Mother Nature sponsors this magnificent occasion, and yet it doesn’t get a special date on the calendar. Instead, we recognize this as an entire SEASON of colorful joy, known simply as…
