Creighton Chaney , son of silent star Lon Chaney , tried diligently to live a life separate from his famous father. But in 1935, after several years of performing in Hollywood, a producer billed him as Lon Chaney, Jr. , a change he never liked. He also didn’t appreciate being typecast as a monster once he began performing as The Wolf Man.  Instead he preferred being known for performances like the one he gave as Lennie Small in “Of Mice and Men” (1939) which was nominated for Best Picture. But he was so versatile as a monster that Chaney holds the distinction of being the only actor to portray all four of Universal’s major horror characters: the Wolf Man, Frankenstein’s Monster, the Mummy, and Count Dracula.  Pictured: Glenn Strange, left, and Chaney during production of “Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein” (1948).

In What I Know For Sure by Oprah Winfrey, the legendary talk show host shares candid and sometimes harsh life lessons she has learned over the years that every reader will be able to identify with at some stage in their life. Most importantly, it is a book that teaches us to be better versions of ourselves. Organised by theme—joy, resilience, connection, gratitude, possibility, awe, clarity, and power—these short writings offer a rare and intimate glimpse into the heart and mind of an extraordinary woman – while providing readers wit

The Danger of Saying "Be Careful" to Children

Whenever the children leave the house to go out and play, parents feel the need to protect their safety. Instinctively they tell them to be careful. Parents do this to instill a sense of caution in them so that they don’t get hurt. It’s a reflexive reaction to tell the kids to “be careful” when they set out to play. When they join their friends to ride their bikes, parents tell them to “be careful.” When they’re running around the yard, climbing trees, using sharp tools during craft time; parents’ instinct tells them to say, “be careful.” Parents are protectors. To prevent the kids from hurting themselves, parents attempt to use precautionary language to keep their kids’ guard up. The problem is, “be careful” is so vague and commonly used that children have become immune to this phrase. Saying “be careful” to kids has become a habit. Since the children were little babies, it has been parents’ innate obligation to watch over them and keep them safe. But as the children grow, they re
