Seeing red flags

There is a really good reason to support Senate confirmation of Rex Tillerson to be President-elect Donald Trump's secretary of state: Tony Perkins opposes him. Perkins is the president of the Family Research Council, otherwise known as the Bedroom Busybodies. He blasted out a statement condemning ExxonMobil CEO Tillerson as a person who "not only led the charge to open the Boy Scouts to gay troop leaders but whose company directly gives to Planned Parenthood."

Wow! I hadn't noticed, how much things had changed during Christmas, until Friday night after a drive in Ludowici, where I live. Boy, was I surprised as I was looking at my neighbors' Christmas decorations, ranging from various Disney Characters, like penguins, characters from "Frozen," Winnie the Pooh, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, even a sly looking fox, and those little hot-dog dogs. Some people even had green, red and black dots projected onto their homes and lawn.

‘Arrival’ is intelligent sci-fi movie; doesn’t need effects

"Arrival" is a consistently well-acted, intelligently constructed sci-fi drama that cares much more about character and story instead of mindless special effects. This is one of the brainier, more introspective movies to come out this genre since the likes of "Signs" and "Contact."

Christmas isn't over until tree is mulched

Merry Christmas to all! If you are feeling a little down already because you think the holiday is drawing to an end, rejoice. The Twelve Days of Christmas are just beginning and they are more than the never-ending Christmas carol we all know - or sort of know. I get a little confused after "the five golden rings" verse. The song is said to be a secret catechism, created in the middle ages when practicing Catholicism was illegal. Each present was a secret way to remember the gifts of faith. The partridge represented Jesus. The turtle doves represent the Old Testament ...
