The late 70s- early 80s tv show? The Little House books reprinted and illustrated by Garth Williams? Both?  Since Laura Ingalls Wilder took the literary world by storm, we haven’t been able to get Half-Pint or Pioneer fever out of our minds. Recently I ran across a book of Solomon D. Butcher‘s photos from the pioneer days of the American west and they’re a must see for Little House fans. Butcher came from the...

That uncompromisin’, enterprisin’ Maude!

I caught an episode of Maude the other day, a 1072-78 comedy starring Bea Arthur pre-Golden Girls and Esther Rolle pre- Good Times (Both were spin-offs). Rue McClanahan and William Macy had a recurring role and other guests who appeared through the seasons included Teri Garr, Bernadette Peters and Michael Keaton. I was listening to the lyrics to the opener and realised I’d never actually listened- they set up the pro-women...

Happy Chanukah day 8: Learning from the Lights

I can in no way claim to speak on the subject of Chanukah myself, so I let Chabad.org do it for me. Chabad.org is my go-to for referencing all things in Jewish culture I have questions about. It has a lot of great resources Christians can learn from and grow with as well as being just layman’s-termed and visual to break things down if you have a simple question about Judaism.
