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.

The Couch Potato: Live blogging ‘The Bachelor’ — all this and no proposal?
Everyone’s favorite guilty pleasure ended Monday night with the finale of “The Bachelor.” The Couch Potato is a long-time fan of the show and I decided to try something different this week, so welcome to the first Couch Potato “Live” Blog.
Gary Church: Oh, I’ve got call waiting, but it’s not what you think
As an old dude, I have tried with all my heart to keep up with all of the new technology. This venture will now be a thing of the past. I am finally giving up and taking my place with the people of the stone age.
Lisa Madras: Don’t be a tattle-tale? That’s a dangerous double-standard
Is it ever OK to be a tattle-tale? Tattle-tale ... isn't that an ugly word? The dictionary defines it as "a child who tells a grown-up about something bad that someone else has done."
Josh Drespling: Despite what ‘they’ say, I’ll take my idols any day
“They,” in their infinite wisdom, say to never meet your heroes. “They” say that you will be greatly disappointed with the stark and complete reality of said person.
Gary Church: Boy, I’d like to give my two cents to the lady in charge of the change tray
I'm cheap, but not real cheap. I was paying for something that came to $2.32. Sitting on the counter was one of those loose change trays, where you can drop some change in or take some out.
Tim Kolodziej: I never realized how popular I am
I’ve never realized how many people are thinking about me today. I’ve never realized how many people want what’s “best” for me.
The Couch Potato: Does ‘30’ rock? It’s only the best sitcom — ever
The Couch Potato has written about a lot of different television shows over the past months, hitting on great dramas, comedies and everything in between.
Gary Church: Hey, do they serve fries with that burrito?
I come from a long line of fussy eaters. My mother may have been the queen. When she made biscuits, she would spoon the center out, and eat only the outside of the biscuit.
Lisa Madras: Feeling stuck? It’s time to figure out why
Why are you where you are? Geez, if this isn't a loaded question, I don't know what is. This one is going to make up dig deep. Real deep. And before the digging even starts, we have to define what we mean by "where you are."
Gary Church: Mexican food, amazing bass and a private chat with Jen — can it get any better?
Did you ever have one of those weekends that you hated to see end? It all started Friday, when after 10 years of driving the same old car, I got a new one. I got a RAV4.
