“The Book of Life” has most of the same pros and cons as “The Boxtrolls” from a couple weeks ago. Both films are absolute joys to watch for their delightful characters, unique worlds, and dazzling animation. As creative as they are in terms of presentation, neither film is all that original when it comes to storytelling. “The Book of Life” isn’t just a familiar story like “The Boxtrolls,” through. It’s also a very overstuffed and awkwardly paced one too. So exactly how problematic is the story? Well, read the synopsis below and find out for yourself.
Jax is a big beautiful boy, about 3 years old. He’s very playful and sweet. Thus far he’s gotten along with most cats he’s met. It isn’t sure if he’d be happy living with dogs. Jax has been at the shelter for quite some time so when he does get adopted the family should understand it might take him some time to adjust to a home environment. His last person ended up having to return him due to allergies. Jax would like to be brushed sometimes to keep that wonderful mane of his looking it’s best. He seems to understand there’s a price to pay for being so handsome so he doesn’t mind it.

As women transition into menopause, known as peri-menopause, hormone levels can be all over the board. Some women sail smoothly into menopause experiencing little if any symptoms at all, while others suffer physical, emotional and psychological symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, newly-found belly fat, insomnia, moodiness, anxiety, hair loss, cognitive changes, joint pain, and decreased or totally absent libido.
If there are eight women reading this article, one of you will develop breast cancer by the age of 80. Or if there are 48,222 of us women in Ahwatukee (ZIP codes 85044, 85048, 85045), 5,787 have already or will have developed breast cancer before the age of 80; a fairly sobering thought. Equally sobering is this: if there are 48,960 men in Ahwatukee, a little less than 1 percent or 490 will develop breast cancer. (Demographic statistics came from HOMES.POINT2.com).
