As I make my predictions for who with win and who won’t in office pools, in social media forums, at the party, and privately during the Oscars’ telecast, I am always conscious of three factors in Oscar prediction that make it more a game of chance than an intellectual pursuit. The first challenge is that I have my favored and loathed among the nominations, which influences my guesses. Second, although the actual quality of one film above the other requires comparing apples to oranges, the nominees and the winners reflect only the majority opinion of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences members. The third challenge to predicting the winners is more complicated. The personal and business politics of who wins and the studios’ massive advertising campaigns both influence, or not, the voting of the Academy.

I love when I find a unique restaurant for the Dining Divas to try. Put it in a unique neighborhood near the Botanical Gardens, and that’s even better. Put it in an old gas station, well, that’s about as unique as it gets. The Dining Divas went to Old Standard Fried Chicken on Tower Grove Avenue to “filler up”.
Includes A Taste of North County
The Greater North County Chamber of Commerce and the City of Florissant will co-sponsor the 27th Anniversary of the chamber’s Business Showcase, featuring a “Taste of North County.” on Saturday, March 21, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the James J. Eagan Community Center.
