January Non Profit

Meals on Wheels- February Nonprofit

22 sq ft 22 gross/month

Burlington Meals on Wheels is a private non-profit organization delivering meals to the elderly and infirm of the Greater Burlington VT Area. We do not charge for our meals we ask our receivers to donate whatever they can afford.  Our funding comes from donations, fund-raising, grants, and some private organizations like CVAA (formerly the the Champlain Valley Agency on Aging).  We do not get any direct federal, state, or United Way money.  Most of our Clients are over 60 years old but we do feed younger people as well.  We prepare our meals daily using as many local ingredients as we can.  Our meals are packed by us and delivered by our wonderful volunteer drivers.  The delivery and the contact that our receivers get from our drivers is as important as the nutrition provided by the meals.   One of the main things people want as they age is to be able to stay in their own homes and out of nursing homes and hospitals as long as possible.  In fact we can feed one person for a whole year for less than it costs to spend one day in the hospital.  We think that is time, money, and energy well spent.  Do you know anyone who may need meals on wheels?  If so please contact us.

2/14 - When Harry Meet Sally (1989)

2/14 - When Harry Meet Sally (1989)

42316 sq ft 4232 gross/month

The now classic romantic comedy film, starring Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan, nabbed a screenplay nom for Nora Ephron at the 62nd Academy Awards in 1989. In this acutely perceptive and comically radiant love story, Harry and Sally find they're always there for each other. It soothes them, but still, they never consider themselves a couple. Punctuating this tender, modern tale with humorous, sage-like snippets of long-married elderly couples recounting the unlikely beginnings of their lifelong marriages, director Rob Reiner gracefully and powerfully accents Ephron's amazing and magnificent main story — the nearly 12-years-in-the-making love connection between hyper Harry and sensible Sally. When Harry Met Sally is a beautiful, brainy, touching and lilting romantic comedy that should touch the heartstrings of lovers and those yearning to be in love everywhere. Happy Valentine’s Day.

The Long Goodbye

2/21- The Long Goodbye (1973)

324 sq ft 134 gross/month

Raymond Chandler, the creator of the tough-but-honorable Los Angeles private detective Philip Marlowe, once wrote in a letter to a friend: "The private eye is admittedly an exaggeration - a fantasy. But at least he's an exaggeration of the possible." When Robert Altman made a movie of the novel Chandler considered his best, "The Long Goodbye," Marlowe, played by Elliott Gould, seemed at first glance almost unrecognizable as the character audiences had seen embodied by, among others, Humphrey Bogart, in Howard Hawks's "Big Sleep" (1946). But although plenty had changed in the 20 years between the publication of the novel and the release of the movie in 1973, the new Marlowe was in most respects the same as ever: solitary, rumpled, nicotine-dependent, irreverent of power both legitimate (the cops) and illegitimate (the crooks), and weirdly, stubbornly gallant.

2/28- Wag the Dog (1997)

In a 29-day shoot, Barry Levinson filmed this $15 million political and media satire, adapted by Hilary Henkin and David Mamet from Larry Beinhart's novel, American Hero. Two weeks prior to re-election, the President (Michael Belson) is accused of cornering an underage girl in the Oval Office. To keep the media from learning of this, Presidential adviser Winifred Ames (Anne Heche) brings in political consultant and spin doctor Conrad Brean (Robert De Niro), a specialist in such salvage operations. Brean suggests fabricating denials of non-existent emergencies -- such as denials about the B-3 bomber. The denial, of course, is true, since no B-3 bomber exists. Brean visits the mansion of Hollywood producer Stanley Motss (Dustin Hoffman) and gives him the assignment to create a patriotic campaign centered around a war in Albania. Motss assembles a creative team -- Liz Butsky (Andrea Martin), the trend-setter Fad King (Denis Leary), and songwriter Johnny Green (Willie Nelson). Treated like an ad campaign, the songs and symbols are transmitted directly from a Hollywood soundstage to CNN. The star of their campaign is a "rescued" pilot -- in reality, a psychotic military prisoner (Woody Harrelson), who's a ticking time bomb. The flag-waving song, "The American Dream" was written for the film by Tom Bahler (who co-wrote "We Are the World"). Beinhart's original novel involved a real President (Bush), a real war (the Gulf War), and the premise that George Bush and Saddam Hussein staged it.
