A BOOMER’S JOURNAL:
So it is Happy New Year to you. I trust you are still keeping your resolutions made so earnestly as you nursed yourself back to life on Jan.1. You may recall that last year for 2015 I resolved not to make any resolutions, and was completely successful in keeping that promise. However, I realized that that was the wimpy way out of self-improvement, which is after all, the reason for making resolutions in the first place.
It’s the Most Wonderful Time of
The Year for the Dining Divas
By Lisa Kampeter
The holidays are always such a busy time of the year. Decorations, shopping, Christmas parties. And not to mention, most of us have to work in between all the decorating, shopping, and partying. But I wouldn’t change it a bit. Every year, I look forward to the Dining Divas Christmas at my house. The time when I officially kick off the holiday season.

OPENING DEC. 18:
Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip
In director Walt Becker’s animated franchise sequel, Alvin, Simon and Theodore, through a series of misunderstandings, come to believe that Dave is going to propose to his new girlfriend in New York City and dump them. They have three days to get to him and stop the proposal, saving themselves not only from losing Dave but possibly from gaining a terrible stepbrother. The impressive list of actors voicing characters includes Jason Lee, Jesica Ahlberg, Josh Green. Website: www.alvinmovie.com rated PG for some mild rude humor and language and runs 90 minutes.

In his new film, In the Heart of the Sea, director Ron Howard and screenwriter Charles Leavitt modernize the true tale of what happened to the whaling ship the Essex circa 1820 by drawing out themes of environmentalism and comparing the whale oil industry to today’s oil industry. Yet, with all this enlightenment going on in their script, they still manage to make an exciting film thanks to gorgeously done CGI and fast paced action.
A Boomer’s Journal
Well, friends, how are you all holding up this Christmas season? Yeah, I said Christmas, not Holiday, so there. And who cares what Starbucks puts on their cups? I wouldn’t spend $6.50 for a cup of Jamieson much less a Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha Frappucino Blended with Skim Milk and Low Foam. (But I digress, and so early in the column, at that. My apologies.)
The Dining Divas
I got excited when we picked the location for our most recent Dining Divas. I’d heard great things about Katie’s Pizza and Pasta in Rock Hill, and since pizza and pasta are two of my most favorite things, I was really looking forward to it.« Previous Entries Next Entries »
