Fifty Shades of Gray
We no longer boogie,
We no longer cook.
But one thing we have,
Is called the New Look.
Ditch the bathing suit,
Take out winter boots,
Leave hair color natural,
Grow in those gray roots.
Fifty Shades of Gray,
Coming out of our head.
Fading signs of brown and blond,
And varying shades of red.
Out out damned bleach,
No more hair dying fuss,
As shades of gray grow in,
That’s okay with us.
So fifty shades of gray,
Even with the males,
Much more time to wonder,
So what about our nails?

PRIME TIME - HERE WE COME!
The first Cinema Club presentation on
Channel 995 on November 30 was pronounced
a success according to the barrage
of emails and phone calls to the co-hosts,
Vicki Mazel and Dr. Nurit Israeli. Providing
commentary on the Netflix film “Our Souls at
Night” with Robert Redford and Jane Fonda,
the hour-long program was interspersed with
film clips and pertinent still shots provided by
John Virga and Marty Ragusa of the Towers’
in-house technical staff.
PRIME TIME FILM: “THE LIFE AHEAD”
Monday, January 25, 11am
January offering for the Cinema Club: “The
Life Ahead” starring Sofia Loren in her first
film in over a decade.
The film, directed by her son also stars
Ibrahima Gueye who plays a Senagalese youth
who develops an interesting relationship with
Loren as she is playing an aging Holocaust survivor.
Their complicated backgrounds make for
a multi-tiered on-again off-again understanding
of how life is to be lived. The superb acting, lack
of vanity, and intense portrayal by Loren makes
this an outstanding choice for our next film.
Join us on Monday, January 25th at 11 a.m.
Sit back, relax, and let Netflix do the rest.
WOMEN’S CLUB CALENDAR:
James Coll Zoom Lecture
Free Speech and The Constitution: Two-Part
On November 20,
the Women’s Club
kicked off its program
schedule with a Zoom
meeting featuring one
of our favorite guest
James Coll. Introduced
by program chairperson
and acting co-president
Mr. Coll addressed
Prof. James Coll
“Understanding the 25th Amendment.” The
fully subscribed Zoom meeting was open to
dues paying members only, and the sign-up
was conducted by our in-house expert, Judy
Professor Coll cited that this was the 25th
anniversary of the assassination of President
John F. Kennedy. This led to a discussion of
how the presidential succession works in
cases of a president vacating the office due
to illness, death, removal, or inability to perform
required duties. The succession is that
the Vice President shall immediately assume
the duties as the acting president. Listing
presidents in the past that have left the post
due to some of these criteria, Mr. Coll also
mentioned the difficulty of removing a president,
as it requires two thirds majority of both
the Senate and the House of Representatives.
Completing the first in his series of
Zoom lectures, Mr. Coll will be returning
on Wednesday, January 20, 2021 at 3 pm.
HIs subject will be “Free Speech and the
Constitution,” and this will be a two-part
series, the second of which will be held on
Wednesday, February 17 at 3 p.m. This Zoom
lecture will address civil liberties along with
public safety in America.
To sign up for both or part of the series,
please email Judy Paris at Judyparis@twc.
com to ensure your place. Remember -
you must be a dues paying member of the
Women’s Club to qualify for attendance.
