LESSONS FOR CULINARY CHALLENGED COOKS - THE BOOK NOOK

Details

"Mangia! Mangia!" Eat! Eat! That's what my pleasingly plump Italian grandmother would shout while shoving a plate of her steaming homemade ravioli in my face. You never said "no" to Grandma when it came to food. Her love was baked into every bite of lasagna, spaghetti, and rigatoni. If you refused her food, you refused her love.
I show love differently than Grandma. It isn't through food. I give cups of cold water in Jesus' name. Okay, sometimes it's bottled. Either way, it's safer than my...

FATHER'S DAY - SCHINDLER SEZ

Details

We are all entitled to our opinions...no matter how erroneous.

Dad
When I was a boy,
My dad was king,
He could do,
Almost anything.

Then in my teens,
It became otherwise.
I grew taller than him
And twice as wise.

But as I aged,
Thru many a summer,
He either got smarter,
Or I got dumber.

The Monologues
Recently, at the Arts United Center, here in Fort Wayne, "The Vagina Monologues," were featured.

IF RATES RISE, WHAT SHOULD YOU DO WITH BONDS?

Details Shawn Wall, Edward Jones

Interest rates are at historic lows. But they will rise eventually. If you invest in fixed-income vehicles, such as bonds, what might higher rates mean for you?

The Federal Reserve is determined to keep short-term rates low until unemployment improves, but, in the meantime, longer-term rates may well rise.
Depending on your...

NOW YOU SEE ME - AT THE MOVIES WITH KASEY BUTCHER

Details kasey butcher

Remember a few years ago (okay, 2006) when magician movies were the big thing? Imagine the approach to the technique of magic from films like The Prestige paired with the pace and action of a heist movie. Now You See Me attempts to dazzle audiences with this combination, but ultimately fails to really pull it off.

In Now You See Me, four street magicians with different specialties—J. Daniel Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg), Merritt McKinney (Woody Harrelson), Henley Reeves (Isla Fisher), and Jack...

THE GREAT GATSBY - AT THE MOVIES WITH KASEY BUTCHER

Details Kasey Butcher

There has been a ton of press, speculation, and anticipation leading up to the release of Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby. That kind of attention is only befitting a story about excess, secrecy, and speculation. When the film hit the screen, however, this reviewer found that the experience was mostly a flashy mess that overshadowed the powerful sadness of Fitzgerald's novel.

For those who haven't read the book, The Great Gatsby is told from the perspective...
