“The Old Man & The Gun” is a throwback to 1970s’ “New Hollywood” film-making and the early films of, among others, directors Martin Scorsese, Frances Ford Coppola, George Lucas, Steve Spielberg and Brian Di Palma.
That “The Old Man & The Gun” has a 1970s’ look in production design, including cinematography, lighting, sets, costumes, vehicles, and music, shouldn’t be surprising because the fact-based story takes place in 1981 in Texas and nearby states and harks back to events of the previous decade.

A common cold, exhaustion, stress, hunger, sleep deprivation, even allergies can make you depressed, which leads to negative thoughts.
However, in many cases, depression can be caused by negative thinking. Our feelings follow what we are thinking. Dwelling upon negative thoughts can send us spiraling down into depression.
I found many techniques for fending off negative thoughts and becoming a happier person. The following are ones that worked for me.

Q. Our two-year-old was so excited when we brought home her new baby brother, but she has now done a complete turnaround. She screams, cries and whines about everything. She only wants her mommy, wants nothing to do with daddy, won’t let him help her with anything or put her to bed anymore. She’s always been a fantastic sleeper, but now she won’t sleep in her own bed, and if she does, she is up at 3 a.m. and is in ours. How do we cope with a jealous toddler?

Dear Jacquelyn, I’ve noticed for years now that people don’t bother to get dressed up to attend church services anymore. When I was a child, putting on nice Sunday clothing was expected. I know that I am not alone when I say that I grow weary of seeing people come to church in clothes that they would wear to clean out the garage. Why don’t people wear their Sunday-best to church anymore?
