Movie: Isn't It Romantic

It’s almost Valentine’s Day, so it’s time for a rom-com. Or a parody of a rom-com. It follows as many genre conventions as it mocks, but Isn't It Romantic is a feel-good rom-com with some satirical bite -- and a star well-suited for both. New York City architect Natalie works hard to get noticed at her job but is more likely to be asked to deliver coffee and bagels than to design the city's next skyscraper. And if things weren't bad enough, Natalie, a lifelong cynic when it comes to love, has an encounter with a mugger that renders her unconscious, waking to discover that her life has suddenly become her worst nightmare -- a romantic comedy -- and she is the leading lady.

Starring:  Rebel Wilson, Liam Helmsworth, Adam Devine  

Release Year: 2019

Rating: PG-13 (for language, some sexual material, and a brief drug reference)

Running Time: 89 Minutes

Deer Resistant Plants

Deer can be devastating visitors to the garden, defoliating the landscape like a swarm of locusts. Although any plant can potentially be browsed by deer, there are certain plants that tend to be less appealing to them under normal conditions. This lecture by Master Gardener Bernard Dickman will provide some good plant selections that deer will find less attractive to eat.

Strength Training

Losing weight is at the top of the list for New Year’s Resolutions. Strength training is the best way to lose weight and KEEP IT OFF. Strength training actually burns more fat than cardio, improves bone density, and can also greatly improve your quality of life. You will need a mat, a set of light weights, and water (If you do not have weights, you can bring two (2) extra water bottles.) We will warm up, train each major muscle group and cool down and stretch.

Presented by Denise Morgan, Certified Yoga Instructor, Certified Personal Trainer, and a Group Exercise Instructor.
