Shameless Self Promotion-December Edition



The Sturbridge Times Magazine December issue has been out even before the end of the last month, so I am late again. Still, it is never too late to self promote.

On Page 13 is my article about the Merchants of Sturbridge Twelve Days of Christmas celebration. Much is planned, including a visit by the Anheuser Busch Clydesdales to Yankee Spirits. Events will be held on weekends through the month.

I love movie theaters. Yeah, it's nice to watch a video at home and be able to pause the action when necessary and hear everything without somebody behind you doing a play by play. Yet, I like to go to a movie in a theater. Multiplexes are okay, but community movie houses like I grew up are more my style. When the old Casino in Ware closed, it was a sad day as another small town movie house followed the trend to extinction.

Mr. Fred McLennan of Holyoke has taken up the cause and plans to repair the Casino and put it back into operation. Read about it on Page 14.

My column on Page 20 discusses philosophy and bee stings.

There are many other fine artcles. If you did not get a hard copy, you can read it on line here or click on the graphic below to find where to fetch one.
