Made in Massachusetts! Don’t miss the terrific article by Regina Cole in this month’s issue of Forbes Magazine. Regina highlights many of the Massachusetts locations and historical homes where Little Women was filmed. Unlike the previous seven versions of Little Women, which were filmed on sound stages, Director Greta Gerwig’s film was shot at places where the Alcott family lived, at Orchard House in Concord, and Fruitlands Museum in Harvard. Crane Beach, Castle Hill, and the Lyman Estate also set the stage for this classic and beloved tale.

Movie Info: Writer-director Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) has crafted a Little Women that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life. In Gerwig’s take, the beloved story of the March sisters – four young women each determined to live life on her own terms — is both timeless and timely. Portraying Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth March, the film stars Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, with Timothée Chalamet as their neighbor Laurie, Laura Dern as Marmee, and Meryl Streep as Aunt March.

Pet of the Week- Mother Cat

mother cat.png

What I want most for the Holidays is a home of my own. Please help my Holidays wishes come true! My adoption fee is that funny number because it is 50% off as a Holiday Special to help get me more attention….maybe it worked and caught your eye?

Hello Mother Cat here. I am one of the lucky kitties to be rescued from the Virgin Islands after the hurricanes. With the collaborative effort of Sweet Paws Rescue, Humane Society of St. Thomas and Cape Ann Animal Aid I am here safe and just waiting for my forever home.

I am 4 year old cat who loves attention and affection but need someone who understands that I have been through lots of changes lately and will need a slow start. If you would like to visit with me and are looking for an additional feline companion please consider giving me a forever home.
