Football and Big-Screen TVs: Made for Each Other

Football and Big-Screen TVs: Made for Each Other

Although any sport looks better on a large-screen television, football seems to have the best coverage and camera angles that make watching it in high-definition and on a screen that is larger than 27 inches pretty remarkable. Here are some tips if you are thinking about upgrading your current unit: Wait until January for the

Birth Of A Nation

Birth Of A Nation

The 1831 rebellion led by enslaved African American, Nat Turner in Virginia jolted the South at the time. It resulted in the deaths of over 50 white people before the revolt was put down in two days but mob retaliation by fearful whites killed over 200 blacks.  It was a bloody, sorry moment in the

Hell or High Water

Hell or High Water

We are pretty much suckers for any movie with Jeff Bridges. He just seems to dissolve into any of the characters he plays.  He does not disappoint in Hell or High Water. Beautifully filmed in current day west Texas, writer Taylor Sheridan (Sicario) uses the expansive landscape to tell a well-developed story of a divorced

Sully

It’s hard to create a movie when you already know how everything is going to end. Leave it to Clint Eastwood’s, “Sully” to challenge you from the very first scene about your real understanding of the “Miracle On The Hudson”  landing in 2009.

In Your Face(book)!

A recent article in the New York Times by Joyce Wadler noted the online phenomenon of using social media as a conduit for “sticking it” to an enemy or an “ex.” This type of cyber-knife-in-back comes as a result of deliberately not “un-friending” a nemesis to make sure he/she knows the fun they are missing

Suddenly Solo?  Simplify Your Surroundings!

In the wake of a divorce or the loss of a spouse, there is an acceptable (and expected) period of “mourning” during which time things seem to stand still.  After time passes, and when you feel up to it, we suggest that you continue the healing process by de-cluttering your environment. De-cluttering has a salutary

Over-Fifty Flirting – It’s Like Riding a Bike

Being a Suddenly Solo will open up opportunities to make new connections… some romantic, others not so much.  But no matter where it leads, without taking a first step, you just wind up exactly where you are standing. Flirting is an accepted introductory mechanism in our society, but there is definitely a subtle balance to
