>Three big reasons to buy the print edition of The Register Citizen are coming your way over the next few days.
In tomorrow’s paper, we will publish the “Manopause” gift guide to Father’s Day.
In Friday’s paper, we will publish a special section on Winsted’s annual Laurel Festival, including photos of and information on all the contestants in the annual Laurel Queen pageant.
And in Tuesday’s paper, there will be something worth far more than the 50-cent price tag. Inside copies of The Register Citizen that day will be a 44-page glossy magazine-style summer events guide to Northwest Connecticut and the Farmington Valley called “Every Town Has a Green.” In addition to event listings for family activities throughout the summer, it contains articles about the history and attributes of the historic town greens throughout Litchfield County. It’s a great piece to have sitting on your coffee table all summer as you plan your weekends.

>The Register Citizen will have a slightly different take on Father’s Day Thursday, when it publishes a Father’s Day gift guide geared toward the mid-life crisis.
“Manopause” will include tips on how to outfit a “man cave” and plenty of articles and advertisements giving you all kinds of options for big boy toys your father will enjoy.
For those of you completely befuddled at this point, here’s a few definitions from www.urbandictionary.com:
Manopause: A mental condition typically found in men in their mid to late 50’s brought on by the realization that old age is just around the corner. Symptoms include: frequent reminiscing about the “good ol’ days”, cranky judgmental attitude and a closed minded approach to anything new. Usually punctuated by the chronic need to play a lot golf and vote republican. The condition is difficult to cure and almost always progresses into oldtimers disease.”
Man cave: A room, space, corner or area of a dwelling that is specifically reserved for a male person to be in a solitary condition, away from the rest of the household in order to work, play, involve himself in certain hobbies, activities without interuption. This area is usually decorated by the male that uses it without interferance from any female influence.”
