THE FALL OF THE EAGLE: The Defeat and Death of Napoleon
In the summer of 2015, hundreds of thousands of history buffs and re-enactors traveled to Waterloo, Belgium for the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo. This battle in 1815 finished Napoleon’s reign, marked the collapse of the first French Republic, and brought the Bourbons and aristocrats back to power. Imprisoned by the British on St. Helena, Napoleon died of cancer (or perhaps murder) in 1821. Napoleon’s last battles, his extremely difficult family, and his humiliating captivity complete his story. You will enjoy Patrick’s take on the final chapters in the life of Napoleon Bonaparte.

Relationship Rules
We humans are social animals, beginning our life literally connected to another person. Research indicates that we are emotionally and physically healthier when we maintain a meaningful and fulfilling connection with others in ongoing relationships, not just marriage, but family, friendships, and social groups as well. We are more likely to thrive when we are “a part of” rather than “apart from.” While these connections can be very rewarding, they also can be, at times, quite frustrating and trying. This class will present a series of “rules” to enhance the quality of ongoing social and familial ties. Together we will consider the value of these “rules” and discuss the potential impact of applying them in our personal relationships.
