Happy New Year 2016!
On this New Year's Eve, as 2015 draws to a close, we are hopeful and excited to see what 2016 will bring. As far as The Conversation Circle is concerned fashion seemed to be very important to us in 2015. Cable News also got a lot of attention from us. Generally we think cable news is more about commenting on or giving opinions about the news, and, so we call it "talk-news".
This year we lost celebrities who affected us in big and small ways. We remember Leonard Ninmoy and Donna Douglass because who could forget the hours we spent watching "Star Trek" and "The Beverly Hillbillies". For many of us these television shows were staples and the characters they portrayed left long lasting impressions on our young minds.
We remember New York Times columnist David Carr for his openness about his past struggles, Percy Sledge who sang "When a Man Loves a Woman" like no one else could or will, Ben E. King most notably known for the song "Stand By Me", and the great B.B. King.
So as 2015 fades in the rearview mirror it is important to us to remember the impressions that others leave with us. From The Conversation Circle we hope you have a happy and healthy New Year. We'll catch up in 2016!
