What a week. Supermoons, beaver moons and the kids are getting restless in the face of Thanksgiving break. We all need that break. To return home and ground ourselves in our people and accidentally eat our weight in pie. This week we’ve got a great lineup ranging from Star Wars to a very serious conversation about domestic violence in our community at North Branch Library. As always, show us your greatest hits and misses by hash tagging #WDDI and if you cut the muffin, you might just be featured in our post on Monday.
