May 22, 2018 : CK goes Solo!

This week, we'll have a look at the new Han Solo movie, as well as "Dog Show," a movie for slightly-under PG-13 viewers. We'll also start our new summer serial, take an Artwalk in Arvada, get information about the ebola outbreak in Africa and look at a book that disappointed a bit. Add some dinosaur eggs and a nice romaine lettuce salad and you've got a recipe for great reading!
