Masterpiece Theatre is America's longest running dramatic program. Starting this Sunday, they will devote four months to dramatizations of all of Jane Austen's novels, as well as a film biography of the novelist's lost loves. This is an unprecedented presentation of any author's work, but Jane Austen is acknowledged by scholars as the creator of the modern novel. 4 of the six film adaptations will be new to American audiences, and the best-known, "Pride & Prejudice" with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle has never been shown in the U. S.
Many people break those resolutions by February.
Somewhere I heard that in order for something to become a habit you have to repeat it 21 times.
So theoretically if we do some thing everyday for 3 weeks, it will be come a habit and become much easier to continue.

Jane Eyre on Masterpiece Theatre@
Don't forget Masterpiece Theatre this Sunday December 30th and continuing January 6th. This adaptation, with Ruth Wilson as Jane and Toby Stephens as a very handsome Mr. Rochester, is my favorite of all the many Jane Eyre versions. If you didn't catch it in September, try to make a point of watching it this Sunday on WKAR-TV.
