By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
09:19PM / Thursday, August 15, 2019
'Despite a plot-slowing traffic jam midway and the accumulation of saddening clouds in the later laps that almost turns matters into a dirge, director Simon Curtis's "The Art of Racing in the Rain" featured enough enthusiasm and albeit over-the-top sweetness to win me over.    Hey, it's about auto racing and dogs.   All that was needed to fully complete my world would be a healthy portion about food.

But alas, as this PG-rated tale about ambition, love and devotion unabashedly instructs, you can't have everything.   Meet Enzo — his namesake being Enzo Ferrari, of course — the golden retriever pup who wins

Business Owners: You Need Your Own Retirement Plan
Submitted by Edward Jones,

As a business owner, you can't afford to ignore your competition. You can't afford to miss out on the trends affecting your industry. You can't afford to alienate customers. And here's one more item to add to the list: You can't afford not to create a retirement plan for yourself.

But selling a business isn't always simple, and there's no guarantee you will receive enough to pay for a comfortable retirement – which is why you should strongly consider creating a retirement plan now.
