It was like putting a message in a bottle and throwing it into the ocean. In 1941, 13-year-old Mary Ellen Shives wrote her name and Hancock mailing address on a label, packed it in a case with cans of tomatoes to be shipped to Camp Lejeune, N.C., and forgot all about it. She never dreamed it would be the beginning of a fairy tale. It wasn't her idea. She did it at the suggestion of the overseer of the tomato cannery at the farm next to her family's in Fulton County, Pa. She worked there to earn a bit of extra money after her farm chores were done.

Review Do you get bored with fairy tales always ending happily ever after? In "Happily N'Ever After," Cinderella's stepmother, Frieda, tries to change all that. Frieda (voiced by Sigourney Weaver) finds out that every fairy tale in the world is controlled by the Wizard. When he goes on vacation, he leaves the fairy tales in the hands of his two harebrained assistants, Munk and Mambo. Their only job is to make sure that the scales of good and evil remain in balance, so that the stories go as planned.

Review Watching "Pan's Labyrinth" is like seeing a fairy tale in action. This Spanish-language movie by Guillermo del Toro is a story of childish fantasies and innocence lost to the cruelties of the real world. Dark and even a little bittersweet (like good chocolate), it weaves a captivating tale of heroism and terror. Our protagonist is a cute little girl named Ofelia who loves fairy tales. We're immediately drawn into her world when she wanders into the forest and meets a large bug which she calls a fairy.

What a week! History was made as Sen. Barack Obama was elected president of the United States of America. While I'm sure Sen. John McCain and Sen. Hillary Clinton would have made fine presidents, they made a lot of mistakes in this election that Barack Obama didn't. Whether you voted for him or not, there are some lessons that can be learned from his campaign that you can apply to your fitness quest. I'm going to share what I think are the top three. Have a clear, consistent vision and plan While Obama's opponents were changing their messages every week, he kept the same clear message throughout his campaign - and never strayed.

This fairy tale won't come true To the editor: Anyone who believes the George Bush and Dick Cheney fairy tale about drill/pump domestic oil our way out of the energy crisis and that Halliburton will sell us gas for $2 a gallon ... I've got a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like you to have a look at. Jimmy Carter was right. Republicans, starting with Ronald Reagan - have been selling the American public down the river on energy security and they and their big business buddies are the only ones getting rich.

It's a Cinderella story with a fairy tale ending. But there's no glass slipper involved - just a tomato can. Mary Ellen Tyssens grew up on a Pennsylvania farm along the Mason-Dixon Line, where there were plenty of chores to keep her busy. But as a teenager, she went to work at a nearby tomato cannery to make extra money. The job was pretty simple - putting labels on cans, Tyssens said. Little did she know one of those labels would lead to marriage. In a few weeks, couples will be celebrating Valentine's Day - the designated day of romance.

Everybody's favorite disgusting ogre is back for a fourth family film. The 2001 original saw Shrek (Mike Myers) meet his best friend, Donkey (Eddie Murphy), and fall in love with his human-turned-ogre wife Fiona (Cameron Diaz) after saving her from a curse. In the 2004 sequel, Shrek made friends with Puss In Boots (Antonio Banderas) and got things off to a rocky start with King Harold (John Cleese) and Queen Lillian (Julie Andrews), Fiona's parents. The 2007 third installment was a collection of painful pop-culture jokes that I've blocked from my mind, but I do remember that Shrek and Fiona had ogre triplets.

My family never celebrated New Year's Eve.  In fact, as a child of somewhere between the ages of 8 and 10, I overheard my mother talking to my grandparents about how my uncle and his family hosted friends until 3 a.m. the previous New Year's Eve. I was shocked and perhaps even a little disturbed. Although the families involved were Christian, family-oriented folks, I couldn't fathom the idea of being awake until 3 a.m., let alone entertaining or being entertained for such a period time.

Far away in the beautiful Amazon rain forest, a tiny caterpillar wiggled along the forest floor. Her real name had long been forgotten, for most of the forest creatures only knew her as Ugly, Ugly the Caterpillar. Day in and day out, she crept along the forest floor and did what caterpillars do best - eat. Surprisingly, the eating was not her favorite part, but instead she enjoyed the many animals she would meet along the way. Sometimes, she would stop to talk with beetle, help worm dig or share a leaf with snail.

You are familiar with story of the Three Little Pigs. If you're not, I'll give you the CliffsNotes: Pigs, house, straw, sticks, brick, wolf, huff, puff, happy ever after. Oh come on, I can't do everything for you - connect the dots. Anyway, what you might not have been familiar with is that the children's story is horribly offensive to Muslims and home builders. That's not me talkin', that's straight from the mouth of the British government's technology agency, which refused to consider a remake of the tale for some sort of media prize.
