Want to wrap your Christmas gift and New Year's resolution into one? Try a device that keeps track of your every waking (and sleeping) moment. The Fitbit Force and its competing brands, count your steps, distance, calories burned, stairs climbed, and active minutes. It also monitors how long and how well you sleep and syncs it with your computer and smartphone.
With Christmas gift time just around the corner, give some thought to presenting that special film buff in your life with a DVD or Blu-Ray box set to match his or her tastes and interests. It’s possible to find box sets of just about anything that’s been committed to film. There are sets of animated works for kids; sets of TV shows from the early 1950s through just last season; and sets of films by genre, actor, or director. If you’re into the cinematic equivalent of self-flagellation, there’s even a box set of all of the Police Academy movies.
It’s time again for the Greater Cincinnati Holiday Market, a gathering of gift vendors from Cincinnati and around the country at Duke Energy Convention Center. Unique jewelry, clothing, food items and more and, as Robyn Carey-Allgeyer learns from Show Director Vicki Hart, some of the proceeds from the event support Cincinnati’s Bake Me Home charity.
Cincinnati’s Memorial Hall will be in the holiday spirit on December 2 when a gathering of some of the area’s finest artists display and sell their works during the annual Holiday Sale. One of the artists, Brenda Tarbell, sits down with Jane Durrell to talk about this annual event and some of the participating artists.
If you are looking for some truly Cincinnati holiday gifts, you might want to check out Rookwood Pottery’s upcoming open house on November 17 and 18. Rookwood’s Art Director Allan Nairn and CEO Martin Wade join Frank Johnson to talk about some of the new items that will be available for this holiday, including tree ornaments and unique vases.
