The passing of Thanksgiving Day marches us closer to the next big holiday ... Christmas!
Thanksgiving is a time for families and great food to come together.
Let’s face it: dessert is not the star of Thanksgiving dinner. By the time you’ve waded through the turkey, green bean casserole, dressing, sweet potatoes and cranberry sauce, all swimming in a sea of gravy, dessert is hard to, well, stomach. A forgettable pie gets nibbled at, but you’re way too full to delight in it.

SAN-LEE SUNRISE ROTARY
President Andy Manhardt opened the Nov. 18 meeting of the San-Lee Sunrise Rotary with the Quote of the Day: “Working to find peace in the world is a family problem.

Recently I noted the 11th anniversary of moving to my house in the country. In fall 2002, I returned to my rural roots in Buckhorn community where I grew up in a farmhouse across the road from Grandpa’s country store. This homecoming was divine justice — Grandpa and everyone teased me so much about being “quar” that I vowed to leave the Buckhorn-Broadway area forever, and here I was back home “eating my words.”
“How is it that You, being a Jew, ask me for a drink since I am a Samaritan woman? (For the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans)” John 4:9b
Perhaps you have heard the story of an Oklahoma woman who refused to marry her boyfriend on religious grounds — she worshiped money, and he was broke! If your primary goal in life is the accumulation of wealth, you need to know that every material thing you own at the time of your death will then belong to Uncle Sam, family or friends, or causes as specified in a probate will. Every smidgen of it will be left behind!

“Delivery Man” is an American remake of a French-Canadian film, which seems appropriate since its lumbering script sounds like it was rendered using Google Translate. Writer-director Ken Scott appropriates his 2011 movie “Starbuck” about a prolific sperm donor into a Vince Vaughn vehicle that manages to neuter its hyperactive star.

POSITION: Branch executive director of the Lee County YMCA
For proof positive of the critical capital that Jennifer Lawrence has already amassed, look no further than the early plaudits being heaped on “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” the second installment of the Suzanne Collins-penned trilogy. This otherwise banal actioner, with its darker-than-average themes, rests firmly on the able shoulders of its 23-year-old, Oscar-winning star.

Help yourself to some nuts this holiday season: Regular nut eaters were less likely to die of cancer or heart disease — in fact, were less likely to die of any cause — during a 30-year Harvard study.
If any mothers out there are at all like my mom, then you love cooking for your family. Nothing warms your heart more than your kids telling you what a great cook you are and how much they love your special (insert your world-renowned culinary masterpiece here). I’m also guessing there are times when you wish you had a few more helpers in the kitchen too, right?
