Firm Decisions

By Rosie Moore I missed my deadline for sending my last article for the year of 2014 so I will be extra meticulous about sending in my thoughts for the year 2015. In other words, I’m making resolutions, or firm decisions this year. I looked up the word resolve in my old dictionary I have […]

Favorite Stories of Christmas Past

By Rosie Moore “One dollar and eighty-seven cents. That was all. and sixty-six cents of it was in pennies.” So begins O’Henry’s short story, “The Gift of the Magi,” about a young couple and how they deal with the challenge of buying secret Christmas gifts for each other with very little money.

Mincemeat Pie anyone?

By Rosie Moore I did not make mincemeat pie this Thanksgiving simply because only I and one or two other people like it and I end up throwing most of it away, which I hate to do. But I missed it and will consider baking one for Christmas. The origin of mincemeat pie dates back to 500 […]

Christmas Movies

By Rosie Moore There are very few people who do not watch the same movies year after year at the same season–Christmas time. Out of habit or simply for the love of these movies compels us to watch even though we  know most of them by heart. There are many of them but I’m only […]

Rosie’s World: Autumn

By Rosie Moore Autumn is here. The start of this lovely season entails football games, the gradual turning of  green leaves to brilliant hues, pumpkins, and much desired cooler weather. The smell of freshly mown grass still permeates our noses but it won’t be long until the mowers will be silent. I was very amused […]

This is a puzzling world

By Rosie Moore I love doing crossword puzzles. The  New York Times puzzle in News Sentinel’s Sunday paper is too hard and the other one below it, called the United Features Puzzle, is too easy. The one in the daily newspaper is very easy and always includes the same clues, but I still do it. […]
