Q. My daughter is five and our son, three. She has never been interested in playing with dolls or “girly” things, but rather prefers the games and toys we purchase for her brother. We have even agreed to her request for a really short, boy-style haircut. She is well adjusted, bright and articulate, but we are concerned about her lack of interest in anything feminine. Should we do more to encourage her to become more “girly,” and inhibit her tomboy side?
The panelists were unanimous in...
When you hear the word “bulb,” what is the first flower you think of: tulip, daffodil, crocus, snowdrop or other fall-planted bulb?
Can you name your favorite summer bulb? These include begonia, caladium, canna, dahlias, gladiola, lilies of many varieties, oxalis, and many more.
Bulbs is a term used loosely to include corms, tubers, tuberous roots, rhizomes, and true bulbs. Bulbs are grouped broadly into spring-flowering (January through May) and summer-flowering (June through...
It might seem incongruous to call a theatrical production about dying a feel-good play, but that is a perfect way to describe Civic Theatre of Allentown’s latest offering, “Tuesdays with Morrie,” through May 20, Alumnae Hall, Cedar Crest College, Allentown.
Written originally as a best-selling memoir by sportswriter Mitch Albom, then turned into a TV movie and later a play by Albom and Jeffrey Hatcher, “Tuesdays with Morrie” celebrates life and death as natural progressions.
Spoiler Alert: This movie review is going to avenge “Avengers: Infinity War.”
The hit movie, which broke domestic and international opening weekend movie box-office records, and continues to set records, is a bloated, computer-generated-imagery mess.
The Mavel Cinematic Universe is a very crowded universe in “Avengers: Infinity War,” with just about every character known to superhero fans in the movie, short of Inspector Gadget. Yes, I know he’s not part of the Marvel Cinematic...
Thinking outside the Bach: There’s a ‘new guise’ in town for Bach Choir 111th Festival and its 120th anniversary year
Bach is getting unbuttoned and heading outside this year for the 111th Bethlehem Bach Festival taking place over two weekends May 11-12 and 18-19 in Bethlehem.
New this year, the annual festival is presenting “Bach Outdoors!” a free performance kicking off the festivities at noon both Fridays on Payrow Plaza between the Bethlehem Public Library and City Hall. Organizers hope the new free event will engage people about the music of Bach in an entirely new way.
The music will be...
When Civic Theatre of Allentown first staged “Tuesdays With Morrie” in 2008 it was an intimate production presented on the then new black box stage of Theatre514.
This time around, the two-person play about a student and his teacher dying of Lou Gehrig’s disease, opens May 4 on the much larger stage of Cedar Crest’s Alumnae Hall.
Director Bill Sanders says the material is strong enough to make the transition: “The moments need to be a little bit larger. But most of it is taking...

Second of two parts
The shoulder is made up of three bones: the collarbone, shoulder blade and upper arm bone.
The shoulder is the body’s most movable joint. It is also unstable because the ball of the upper arm is larger than the shoulder socket that holds it. The unstable shoulder is held in place by soft tissue: muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Common shoulder problems include dislocation, separation, torn rotator-cuff, frozen shoulder, fracture, arthritis, tendinitis...
