Don't you sometimes need a little pick-me-up in the late, or even mid-afternoon?
People in this country like to talk a lot about freedom and how happy they are to have it.
Some of the greatest movies out there are the ones that have crisis management as the crux. I love watching some authority figure convincingly persuading a villain from blowing up the West Coast or assuaging bank robbers in a hostage situation.

First my thanks go out this week to Internet reader Paul Brogan of Concord, N.H. for helping clear the cobwebs from my tired old brain and setting me straight on some movie history. I mentioned a Doris Day movie in which a baby was delivered and they were frantically scrambling to find a newspaper to wrap it in. He tells me the movie is the 1963 "The Thrill of It All" and that Day is not pregnant but Arlene Francis is and her husband is character actor Edward Andrews and their doctor is James Garner. Thanks again, Mr. Brogan and to all of you Internet readers, keep reading.

I was on my way to work Tuesday morning, when I decided to change my earrings. So I grabbed my jewelry box and proceeded to look for a festive, colorful pair of earrings that reminded me of dangling confetti.
In every life, adult decisions must fall.

Beauty and Beast are 4 years old. Both are black with white markings, and both have long hair. They have both been sterilized and are current on vaccinations. Beauty and Beast are brother and sister, and have been together since their birth. As small kittens they were adopted by a single man, who kept them until last year when he decided to marry. His new wife refused to allow him to keep the cats. They moved to a new house, and left these two pitiful babies in the basement of the old house, totally alone except when they went in to feed them, for 6 long months. By the time the pair ended up with Clayton Co. Humane, they were frightened and severely traumatized. It has taken much time and patience to convince these cats that they were finally safe and with people who truly love them. Though still a little frightened of strangers, they have become very loving and affectionate with the staff at the shelter. Humane society staff firmly believes that the cats will adjust well in a new home, but it will be necessary to keep them together, as they are very bonded with each other. In order to allow them to stay together at the shelter, they are currently living in a very small, cramped space. Because of their inadequate living quarters, it is imperative that these cats secure a permanent home very soon. VERY SPECIAL adoption fee will be considered for anyone interested in giving these angels a chance at a real home and family. For more information about Beauty and Beast, please call Robin at 770/478-7531. Visit www.claytoncountyhumane.org to see other animals available for adoption.

Weddings are wonderful aren't they? I think that may depend on what role you have in a particular wedding. Attending the wedding and reception can be very much fun and relaxing, but being involved in the actual planning can be another story.
