The Age of Adaline

Pictured above:  Adaline, portrayed by Blake Lively VAV!/May 21, 2015/Contributed by Star In Her Eyes A sweet, romantic tale, The Age of Adaline, is a different kind of film. Though it's a romance, there is a touch of science fiction to explain Adaline's peculiar situation. Instead of a typical movie, the film seems more like a fantasy tale done in water colors and rose-water. Adaline is like everyone else who ever lived. She decides to marry and have a child and nothing seems extraordinary about her life. Things change when she is involved in a one car accident. Nature collides with science, and she changes. But Adaline never changes, never ages, and has to leave her hometown so the government does use her as a test subject. She never spends too much time in one place but keeps up with her daughter, happy with her simple, nomadic life. That changes when she meets Ellis Jones, and her feelings for him cause her to rethink all her rules.


FAO Schwarz Closing Flagship Store In Midtown Manhattan In Mid July

VAV!/May 18, 2015 The iconic store, F.A.O. Schwarz,  in the General Motors Building on New York City's Fifth Avenue, will be closing its doors on July 15 due to rising rent prices.The lease, that encompassed about 65,000 square footage, wasn't set to expire until 2017. For nearly 30 years, since 1986, the  Fifth Avenue location had been home for the toy store. While the store has moved to several other locations since its opening in 1862, this will also be the first time its ever said goodbye to Manhattan.

VAV!/May 7, 2015/Contributed by Bobby, The Blog Chef One thing that I always enjoy grilling during the summer is honey garlic pork chops. This recipe uses boneless pork chops but you can use chops with the bone-in as well. The highlight of this recipe is the sauce which consists of honey, ketchup, garlic and soy sauce. This delicious sauce is basted onto the pork chops during the grilling process and the end result is amazing. If you would prefer to use a different type of meat, this recipe would work with chicken as well. If you are looking for a simple and delicious recipe for the grill, give this one a try. Enjoy.


1940s Product and Food Costs

VAV!/November 14, 2014 The era of the 1940s  found America a wartime nation. The effects of World War II filtered through America's culture. Men headed to war and women capably filled their vacancy in the labor force. The country was experiencing an increased immigration of European citizens, anxious to escape Hitler and the Holocaust. The bombing of Pearl Harbor, Hiroshima and Nagasaki were devastating blows felt around the world. During 1940-1945, a rationing program was in effect and controlled the purchase of certain products that were essential for the war effort. From gasoline to nylon stockings, prices were fixed and the United States government urged Americans to conserve wherever possible.  The government urged the nation to onward to their patriotic activities such as growing their own vegetables in a 'Victory Garden' . Some estimates show that Victory Gardens supplied 40% of all vegetables in the country!  Scrap drives were in full swing for tin, steel, paper and rubber. Fashion was impacted during the war since commercially-produced fabric, such as cotton and wool was needed for military purposes. The American woman cleverly adapted their clothing styles to the availability of fabric and products.
