National surveys show consumers’ mood is brightening, and it’s not just holiday cheer. The more positive outlook has a lot to do with the steep drop in gasoline prices since last summer. 2015 holds the promise of more price relief not only at the gas pump but also at grocery stores.
Gather the Family For “Mr. Stink”
MR. STINK may look a lot like Lord Grantham but I don’t think you’d find him at Downtown Abbey. Â Hugh Bonneville starts as Mr. Stink, based on David Walliams’ bestselling book of the same name.
Chloe, a young lady, sees Mr. Stink every day but she’s never spoken to him, which isn’t surprising, because he’s a tramp and he stinks. But before she knows it, Chloe has an unusual friend hiding in her garden shed when it looks like Mr. Stink, and his stinky dog Duchess, might be driven out-of-town. Â As Chloe struggles to make sure no one sniffs out Mr. Stink, she Â has to deal with an overbearing mother who is more interested in her own political ambitions than her daughter, her put-upon dad who has a secret of his own, her “perfect” younger sister Annabelle and the nasty girls who make her life miserable at school. Â What Chloe doesn’t know is there is one other person with his own extraordinary secret. Â Seems there may be more to Mr. Stink than meets the eye… or nose. Â MR. STINK is a perfect program for the whole family and airs Sunday, December 22 at 8pm with an encore presentation at 7pm on Christmas night.
