On the booking circuit, this looks to be about the next notch down from tribal casinos, but hey, it's all included in the price of your floating hotel. Here's a sampling of entertainment this week on Star Princess: Stage ...
Hart's War is an odd mish-mash, pursuing different ends at different times until, by the end of the film, we're not sure what it was about or how we should feel about what it's saying. Starting off as a straightforward World War II movie, it shifts into prison mode when the setting moves to a German prisoner-of-war camp, then it ventures deep into 1940s-era social-problem territory as it e ... ...

I love grocery shopping - something about viewing all those rows of fresh fruits and vegetables, and spying what's new in the take-home section. Lately, I've seen a real plethora of avocados, piled high and with that jewel-like green peel, and it reminds me of the amazing guacamole I once made in a Las Vegas cooking class, and how, years ago, I had enjoyed a delicious avocado and ...
Breakfast wraps are generally predictable - scrambled eggs, bacon or ham and cheese wrapped in a flour tortilla. I was pleasantly surprised by a new spin on this morning starter at The Salad Bowl in Covent Garden Market in London, Ont. Owner Andrew Goddard uses organic hard boiled eggs, organic bacon and then adds spinach, red sweet pepper, cheese, green onion, tomatoes and a splash of two ...

Charlotte StarCharlotte Star – News Updates from Charlotte and North Carolina
The Charlotte Star is essentially a local Charlotte newspaper, but with a national and international perspective, designed to provide readers with a one-stop shop for Charlotte, national US, regional, and world news coverage, weather and sports information, with live updates on breaking business stories, and what's happening in the financial markets.
The biggest advantage we have is that we are an online newspaper, which means we are constantly refreshing our stories as more and more information comes to hand. Often when a story breaks the initial details are sketchy.
We and our sources around the world work hard to gather more information, verify facts, and provide a perspective of the major stories. Expert opinion often accompanies our articles to better inform readers, and provide a more complete understanding
of the news we deliver.
Financial markets and business reports are regular features as we pin down what's happening, and constantly refresh stock market indice readings, dollar currency rates, and breaking business news reports. Our world sports coverage is a priority, as is our regional news.
We like to think if you're looking for breaking news out of Charlotte, North Carolina, the United States, or the world, you'll look for it first at the Charlotte Star.
Anne Bronte, sister of Charlotte and Emily, has been given a new gravestone after 164 years to correct a mistake in the original.
Anne, who authored 'Agnes Grey' and 'The Tenant of Wildfell Hall,' died in Scarborough in 1849 after succumbing to tuberculosis at the age of 29.
But Anne's headstone in St Mary's Churchyard gave her age as 28.
Anne's original gravestone was refaced 3 years after her death, when Charlotte returned to discover five mistakes on it, the other errors were corrected but the age was not.
The Bronte Society installed the new plaque alongside the original that had deteriorated over the years, the BBC reported.
Society's Sally McDonald said that Anne was the quietest Bronte and can still sometimes be overlooked in favour of her sisters Charlotte and Emily.
She added that in some ways, though, she is now viewed as the most radical of the sisters, writing about tough subjects like women's need to maintain independence, and how alcoholism could tear a family apart. (ANI)
