I love the creativity surrounding movies and fictional television: the writers, directors, actors and actresses, promotional personnel, and genius minds all merging together transporting us into another world, if only for a few, short hours. Hollywood was created to make the unbelievable, believable and in times past they did an incredible job drawing us into circles of fantasy and illusion. But, the past few years the winds have changed among this once, anointed community: Its quality has been greatly tarnished in favor of extreme violence, ultra-liberal propaganda, and anti-social behavior....

Well, I’ve done it, and there is no going back to undo what I’ve done. I might as well wear the scarlet letter “A” because I am guilty as charged. I’ve had my first taste of craft beer—well, many, in fact!—therefore, according to James Watt and Martin Dickie of the television show Brew Dogs, I am no longer a “craft beer virgin.” And I am not ashamed to admit this.

From my innocent beginning—of indulgence that left me saturated and sated—I was brought to my knees, dizzy with delight, hooked without a chance for recovery.

However, if cold and snow isn’t something that appeals to you, then you probably spend the winter months waiting for the spring to come around. The problem with this is that it’s really difficult to stay fit during the winter – most of us end up with extra baggage that we have to burn off once the days start to get longer again. Not only that, spending time at the gym during the winter is both expensive and monotonous – which is why many of us don’t keep up the commitment. However, there are a number of enjoyable...
