Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: I’ve seen both “Cats” and the new “Star Wars” and my choice is definitely the new “Star Wars.” TV/Streaming: I have a weakness for Lidia’s cookery programs, and she has a new one Friday on PBS. Music: I distract myself from the incessant holiday music by listening to old favorites, like the “Trios” albums from Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, and Emmylou Harris. Books: I’m catching up with Amitav Ghosh’s trilogy, before it becomes a streaming series (in the works). First volume is “Sea of Poppies.” Sports: My 76ers are in second place in the East, but their recent losses against the Nets and the Heat gave me pause. Finally: Impeaching the President was the best possible Christmas gift not only to our country but to the world.
