As with thousands of homes across St. Louis, there was much ado with my family about this week’s Thanksgiving feast.

The work of legendary Hollywood costume designer Edith Head can be seen in classic movies such as Roman Holiday, To Catch A Thief and Funny Face, work by the likes of Ginger Rogers, Bette Davis, Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn and others. With more than eight Academy Awards and 35 nominations under her belt, it’s no wonder Head inspired actress, writer and artistic director Susan Claassen to pen a one-woman play in her honor. In December, Claassen will bring A Conversation With Edith Head to St. Louis. Claassen spoke with Ladue News about creating the show and what it’s like to portray the great Ms. Head.
Thanksgiving is just days away, and let me guess: It kind of crept up on you this year. Well, considering it’s technically on a different date each year, I guess it can catch you off-guard—that’s my excuse, certainly. Especially this year with the Hanukkah overlap—Thanksgivi-kah, if you will—and the start of Christmas shopping, it’s a very busy time. So take a moment to unwind with a little Turkey Day trivia.
One of these days, Laura Dierberg-Padousis vows she’s going to find the time to learn how to cook. For now, her only ‘specialty’ is macaroni and cheese.

You went out to dinner and, to put it mildly, you did not have a good experience. What do you do? If you’re of a certain generation, your next move is probably to write a scathing review on Facebook or Twitter.
Whether you lived through it, or it was before your time, everyone has their own ideas about the 1960s. The Missouri History Museum currently is hosting The 1968 Exhibit, which brings visitors through a tumultuous year that saw protests against the Vietnam War and the assassinations of Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr., but also a revolution in pop culture with the likes of Laugh-In, and the emergence of denim and tie-dyed T-shirts. The exhibit originated at the Minnesota History Center, and is on display locally through Jan. 5. We spoke with Gwen Moore, Missouri History Museum’s in-house curator for the exhibit, about what makes The 1968 Exhibit so groovy.
Jack Straub and his son, Trip, are looking at the old snapshots that hang on the walls inside the Straub’s Markets office in Clayton. One picture shows a long row of telephone operators taking calls for home delivery service: All are wearing bulky black headsets with thick cords fitted over coiffed hairdos, their legs are crossed and they’re flashing big 1940s smiles.
Daring color is in the air this fall. F. Schumacher is calling fuchsia this season’s ‘it’ color and the perfect upbeat alternative or complement to neutrals.

You can’t take it with you. That’s why as Sam Simon, co-creator of TV's The Simpsons, faces a terminal cancer diagnosis, he reportedly is giving away his tens of millions to charity.

But how can you ensure your name will live on through the things you really care about?

The more things change, the more they stay the same. With the birth (and upcoming christening) of Prince George Alexander Louis, the line of succession for the British monarchy extends to a fourth generation. The Prince of Cambridge is now third in line to the throne after his grandfather, Prince Charles, and his father, Prince William. He booted his Uncle Harry to fourth. What could have been groundbreaking—but wasn’t—was a change in the law of succession passed by Parliament in 2011 that guaranteed that the first child of Prince William would become the ruling (regent) king or queen: This child was going to be third in line to the throne regardless of sex. The difference is, under the old law, had this baby been a girl, she could have been surpassed in the line of succession by a later-born brother. Since George is a boy, he’s third under either law—and will stay so—thus, things stay the same this time. Interestingly, primogeniture, or the practice of the oldest male inheriting a nobleman’s entire estate, continues for dukes and earls and other landed gentry.

Welcome friends. Today we take a harrowing journey, a journey upon which many younger tribesmen have never embarked. It is a journey fraught with hazards and obstacles, so much so that one wonders how any of our travelers ever make it. It is the curious migration of untamed clothes from the warm safe confines of the laundry room out across the open home to the more permanent habitat, the drawer.
