What do you do when you've cleared your calendar for five months and have accumulated sufficient frequent flyer miles to get to Europe and back? In the case of our presenters: start off in Barcelona and end up in London, stopping for weeks at a time in Provence, France (steam train and, ahem, gorgeous gorges); Verona, Italy (the Dolomites, Romeo and Juliet); Innsbruck, Austria (bell foundry); Scotland (Neolithic village, Viking runes); and Greece (Lady of Kalymnos). If you're looking for inspiration to "just do it," this is the talk and slide show you've been waiting for. Armchair travelers equally welcome!

The family cartoon movie for November is Boss Baby (rated PG). Loosely based on Marla Frazee's picture book of the same name, this movie features a new baby who's like a grumpy boss, right down to the adult voice (Alec Baldwin). He runs his big brother and household like a crew of office workers. There's an additional plot about whether puppies (from the puppy factory) are cuter than babies, and a competition between the two groups for a pie-chart share of affection. Plenty of baby jokes for young kids to laugh over, cute animated babies and puppies, and a brotherhood theme are the positives in this basically silly film.
