NEW CASTLE —
How was your Thanksgiving?
Mine was great!
My mother put together quite the feast this year. She went all out, especially when it came to dessert. I wish I would've taken some photos as she baked a double layer pumpkin pie, a half dozen strawberry and cream cheese filled pastries and even a few chocolate lava cakes, filled with pudding and whipped cream. They were delicious.
It's hard to believe that soon it will be Christmas. Time sure does fly by. To think I have been writing this food blog for over a year now! I have learned so much about cooking. And now that I can do the things I wanted to a year ago, like cook a meatloaf or bake a brownie, I feel like the time has come to move on. (Not from blogging, just from food blogging.)
Starting on Dec. 5, I will be journeying into the world of film.
Who doesn't love movies?
Movies can bring us together; they can start conversations; they can inspire change. I think Stephen King said it best on TCM's "Night at the Movies" when he said, "Art levels all walks of life." I couldn't agree more.
We've all watched a movie at one time or another and turned to the person beside us and said, "Did you see that?" I love movies, but even more so, I love talking about movies.
I'm very excited to share my longtime passion with you. I will be writing about the latest movie releases, the best classic films and the most-loved family favorites.
And, this change couldn't happen at a better time because 'tis the season! The month of December will be dedicated to, you guessed it, holiday flicks!
So on that note, did you know one of the first Christmas movies ever made was produced in 1898?
Well, I'll tell you all about it next week.

Gary Church: Grab your sisters and your mothers, it's an ice cream 'convent'-ion
To keep my nice figure, I like to go to Forbush's at least once a week. This is also my entertainment for the night. We sit there for an hour or so, watching people. Last week, a group arrived that I had never seen before.
Tim Kolodziej: What is your definition of The Dream?
Johnnyswim. I know, I know. Me neither. I had no idea what that word meant until a couple of months ago, when a friend of mine on Twitter was absolutely gushing about a great concert he had just seen.
The Couch Potato: Does "House of Cards" crumble or stand?
The old Couch Potato has been methodically working my way through the hit Netflix series, “House of Cards,” over the past few weeks and let me just say, it’s pretty good.
Gary Church: It was an uphill climb, but this driver was a real trooper
It's always a tragedy when I have to cover a drowning for The News. I hope I never have to go to Kennedy Mills again for this purpose. It is located at the bottom of a twisty, turning hill on Frew Mill Road.
Lisa Madras: I struggle with goodbyes, so I’ll just say ‘thank you’
After 12 amazing years at the New Castle News, it is finally time for me to say goodbye. I walked through the doors of this building believing that I had found the place I would live out the rest of my days, content in the chaos of deadlines and bylines, inky fingers and editorials.
Josh Drespling: When the family’s away, this bachelor will ... work?
It was inevitable. I knew it was coming and the situation was unavoidable. Over the course of the last few weeks I have been preparing myself for this moment and it has finally come.
Gary Church: Geez, whatever happened to privacy in the men’s room?
I never know when a blog moment may happen. This recent blog moment occurred during the Rockin’ the River concert at the Cascade Riverplex.
Tim Kolodziej: LeBron’s return, and his essay, can teach us plenty
So there’s this guy LeBron. You may have heard of him. He plays basketball for a living. He also writes essays. Writes them very, very well, as a matter of fact. Last week, he put pen to paper to explain why he’s returning home to play again for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Couch Potato: Is latest ‘Transformers’ REALLY that bad?
The word on the latest "Transformers" movie is that it may be the worst film of all time. I have never seen any of the "Transformers" movies, and I don't really plan on seeing this newest one, but I can't imagine that any of them are actually the worst movies of all time.
Gary Church: Despite my appearance, I’m the ultimate wingman
There's no doubt that as a child, I was way ahead of my time. When Mom made fried chicken, I would always ask, "I want the two legs sticking up."
