    Grin and “Bear” It0

    A few weeks ago, my hubby went outside to burn papers. He found a really nice bird feeder right next to our burning barrel, which sits behind the back of our garage. “Babe, do you know whose bird feeder this is?” he asked. At this point, it didn’t matter whose it was because it was

    The messages came flowing in one day after the article about Big Times restaurant in Williamsport hit homes.

    Keep that shirt. It’ll eventually come back in fashion. So many things do: roller skating and yo-yos, for instance. Car features and furniture styles. Wide paisley ties, bell bottom jeans, vintage tees, and cat-glasses, those occasional darlings of fashionistas and there we go. So keep that shirt, it’ll eventually come back — although, as in

    The first time you saw it, you knew you’d have to see it again. You were obsessed with the comedy. You couldn’t get enough of the music. You still remember the first-third-fifth time you saw the movie, alone or with friends, in a theater or on TV. And in the new book, “The Blues Brothers”
