When is speaking your mind saying too much? When is biting your tongue saying too little?
Truth in conversation, feelings and action is at the heart of "Enough Said," an entertaining and thoughtful romantic comedy memorable for its nuanced performances, especially that of James Gandolfini in what is his second-to-last big-screen role.
Look for an Oscar actor nomination for Gandolfini and a possible Oscar for the highly-regarded and beloved actor best-known as Tony Soprano on HBO's "The Sopranos."
Q. Is it true that sleepwalkers can't be hurt when they walk in their sleep?
It is a common misconception that sleepwalkers, aka somnambulists, are often injured when they trip and fall in their sleep.
Another myth is that you should not wake up a sleepwalker. It is not dangerous to awaken a sleepwalker. In fact, it can be quite dangerous not to awake a sleepwalker. The only problem with rousing a sleepwalker is that the person will be disoriented for a while.
Ah, the many puzzling and extraordinary wonders of nature.
I find it difficult to comprehend the numerous miracles that occur each year within our natural realm.
One of the most amazing occurrences is the transformation of a rather nondescript black, yellow and white striped worm-like caterpillar into the dazzling and colorful adult monarch butterfly.
In truth, the life cycle of all butterflies and moths is a phenomenal act of nature.
Coin op: "Coin Expo," 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Nov. 2, Lehigh Valley Heritage Museum (LVHM), 432 W. Walnut St., Allentown, features guest curator Stephen Gehringer and expert numismatists exhibiting, with more than 20 dealers expected. "Currency represents our nation's growth and how it has grappled with the financial problems. Currency tells the story of our local and national history," says LVHM Executive Director Joseph Garrera. Even the Bank of Catasauqua put in its 10 cents, above. Learn about coin collecting and grading from national experts.

Director and costume designer is Lehigh Valley actor-director Will Windsor Erwin, who describes "Curtains" as "a play within a play."
When an actor in "Robbin' Hood of the Old West" is murdered on opening night, Lt. Frank Cioffi, a police detective and music theater fan, is brought in to solve the case. The show must go on and so do the laughs.
