Casa Ramirez makes Heights Dia de los Muertos central — One month from now, the Mexican holiday of Dia de los Muertos will be in full swing. Traditionally a three-day event to honor the dearly departed, it coincides with All Hallows Eve (Halloween), All Saints Day and All Souls Day. The holiday can be traced back to pre-Spanish colonization days in Mexico.

Recapping 'Doctor Who': 'Ah, same old, same old!' — WARNING: Spoilers ahead and aplenty. I assume that if you are reading here, you have seen this week's episode of "Doctor Who." If you haven't, go do so, and hey, enjoy your trip to scenic Skaro. I'll be here when, or if, you return.

Recapping Doctor Who: 'I try never to understand' — When a TV show makes fans wait an extended period between the end of one season and the opening of the next, there's a certain need to put together a whiz-bang opener. Anything mediocre or worse, and all the frustration of waiting can turn even die-hard fan against a show.

With ‘I Pagliacci,’ Opera in the Heights starts third decade — There's a clown show in the Heights this week and next, but probably not the kind you're imagining. As has been noted here and here, Opera in the Heights is kicking off its 20th anniversary season, and this weekend opens with the classic " I Pagliacci" by Ruggero Leoncavallo at Lambert Hall, 1703 Heights Boulevard.

Festivals, plays and pools all part of staying Heights cool — It's summer and thus vacation time here at Home in the Heights. When I get back, one of my favorite events of the year will be dawning, White Linen Night, set for Aug. 1. If you've never been (or if you have), you're in for a treat as organizers have a big night planned.

What the world will remember 500 years from now — Walter Cronkite, who grew up in Houston, once offered the opinion that if the 20th century were remembered for anything 500 years in the future, it would be for "Man landing on the moon." That thought echoes for me now, as NASA's New Horizons probe beams back its reconnaissance photos of Pluto.
