    Why so serious? It’s time for comedies to get major awards consideration

Like “Get Out,” however, this year’s comedies have shown themselves to be exceptionally elastic vectors for serious content.

    Longtime military wife can’t endure another reunion

I’m finished. No more stories of glory days, seeing pictures of hundreds of beautiful grandkids, smiling until the jaws hurt. My spouse thinks I am not being supportive. I feel crummy. Should I stay or should I go?

    The Hotel Experience is simply more homey

    I often travel to New York City, and I have recently started the search for a small pied-a-terre to lessen the frenetic and loathsome lines at the hotel check-in. In between going to seasonal home furnishings and accessories shows and yearly designer showcase, I am always left with the desire to have New York feel more like home.So it gives me a case of the giggles when I hear clients request that they want their homes to feel more like a hotel. They want the “Hotel Experience.” Really? I guess it’s a case of what Oscar Wilde coined “Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life.”Funny thing is that most hospitality designers strive to give hotel rooms a more homelike feel and approach in the details of their designs. Today’s hip and current hotels go the extra mile to provide an experience rather than just a place to sleep.Personalization is a key player here, and hotels will sometimes follow a reservation with a questionnaire or survey to find out personal preferences that they can provide. This may include anything from newspapers and magazine to floral arrangements and fruit bowls. Specialized services and products such as blanket turndown, menus with different types of pillows, and mattresses that guarantee a good night sleep, are something hotels market, so you can use that to have the “Hotel Experience” at home.At home by design means you will start to find unexpected textures, mix-and-match furniture, diverse wall treatments and tiles, rather than a uniform room style or layout … so each time you stay your experience can be like staying in someone’s home rather than a hotel.The home away from home concept requires less front desk standing, which is being replaced with smaller, more intimate desks and/or check-ins by tablet carrying staff. The evolution of hotel lobbies as a living room more than a mere receiving hall can be seen in increased seating and seemingly haphazard small groupings of chairs and tables as one would expect in a private home.It is not surprising that books abound in lobbies as they would normally in a personal library or home, so you can read while you sip your tea or coffee.Another strong component in hospitality design is storytelling. Storytelling in design can either be fictional or nonfictional. Some hotels may choose to create a design to express a lifestyle or fictional character and will carry the design through its property and details. Hotels within a historical setting or if the property is historical, the design may be driven by the story, and may choose to incorporate design elements original to the building or the historical account.An apple a day is what the doctor ordered, but he or she may have also suggested a gym, a steam bath, an in-room massage, a special diet and even an in-room visit from the doctor. These are some of the touches that hotels are adding to make your stay feel more at home.So the next time you hear someone say they want the Hotel Design Experience, it goes beyond white starched sheets. Perhaps they want you to design their house more like a home.• Joseph Pubillones is the owner of Joseph Pubillones Interiors, an award-winning interior design firm based in Palm Beach, Florida.© 2017, Creators Syndicate

    Certain flowering bulbs are excellent for forcing in pots over winter in the greenhouse or home.

    Chill bulbs for six weeks before bringing them inside

    Certain bulbs, such as daffodils, hyacinths, tulips and crocuses, are excellent for forcing in pots in the greenhouse or home. They need to be chilled for six to 10 weeks at 40 degrees Fahrenheit or below to fulfill the requirements of a dormant period.Plant them in pots in the fall and leave them in a cold place before bringing them inside for forcing. Place the pots in a cold frame outside, plunge the pots into the ground and mulch.Do not allow the pots to dry out. When they are brought inside, gradually acclimate them to inside conditions, keeping them at 50 to 60 degrees for a few days.• Terra cotta containers are best stored out of the elements for winter. When plants in these containers are finished for the year, dump out the growing medium and store the pots in a garage or shed so they are out of the rain. These containers absorb water and the freeze-and-thaw cycles of winter can crack them if they are left outside.If you need to leave them outside over winter, then it is a good idea to elevate them above the ground, store them upside down, and cover them with a tarp to keep the pots as dry as possible.• Any soilless mix from window boxes or containers can be discarded, mixed in a compost pile, blended into a garden bed or kept aside for one more year.If the growing medium is used for a second year, mix equal parts of the old mix with fresh soilless mix next year. Avoid reusing medium in containers that had any problems with disease.• Tim Johnson is director of horticulture at Chicago Botanic Garden, chicagobotanic.org.
