Welcome, December
Welcome, December, and to the freezing temperatures you leave in your wake. Welcome to Jack Frost, forever nipping at my nose. Welcome, Old Man Winter, who causes the snow to fall, and winds to whistle about me as it forces the snow to slice into the flesh on my face. Welcome, early sunsets; the night comes too quickly.

Stage and Screen: Who wants to be a Millionaire? – Woody Grant does
“Nebraska” (2013) has been described as a comedy. While there are some very funny moments in this “Lake Woebegone” variety film, it is not a side-splitting comedy. Au contraire, “Nebraska” is a serious story about aging, a misspent life, alcoholism and, most notably, serious love and concern demonstrated by a son for his largely undeserving father.
