As we wrap up Thanksgiving and begin the Christmas and New Years celebrations, it is a good time to reflect on the good things in our lives, rather than our problems.
Here is my favorite movie
I just love that film.

BOOK OF THE WEEK
I’ve listened to these old radio shows so many times that I know these stories so well, but I still found this book very entertaining and readable. If you like to read mysteries, I think you will like this book.
MOVIE OR PLAY OF THE WEEK
A nice way to start the Christmas Season is my seeing the play, “A Christmas Carol“. But if for one reason or another you can’t, then perhaps you will want to watch one of the various “A Christmas Carol” films. My favorite is the one starring George C. Scott. Or perhaps, you might like a more current version, such as Bill Murray’s “Scrooged”.
MUSIC OF THE WEEK
By Marvin Gaye
ART OF THE WEEK
Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument in Wiltshire, England, 2 miles (3 km) west of Amesbury. It consists of a ring of standing stones, with each standing stone around 13 feet (4.0 m) high, 7 feet (2.1 m) wide and weighing around 25 tons. The stones are set within earthworks in the middle of the most dense complex of Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments in England, including several hundred burial mounds.
Archaeologists believe it was constructed from 3000 BC to 2000 BC. The surrounding circular earth bank and ditch, which constitute the earliest phase of the monument, have been dated to about 3100 BC. Radiocarbon dating suggests that the first bluestones were raised between 2400 and 2200 BC, although they may have been at the site as early as 3000 BC.
Stonehenge could have been a burial ground from its earliest beginnings. Deposits containing human bone date from as early as 3000 BC, when the ditch and bank were first dug, and continued for at least another five hundred years.
EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK
I know, I made Worf my Extraordinary Person of the Week in the past, but perhaps the following video will demonstrate why I think Worf is so extraordinary.
THIS WEEK’S JOKE
Now that Christmas will soon be upon us, it is probably a good idea to establish a few rules.
Looking for a gift for someone who has everything, perhaps this will help.
Warning: This book will not change your life, only you can do that.
