What a story!

Wow. What a story.

This movie is all about the story. Nothing else. It is said to be ‘real life’ and true to life. At the end they include some ‘home movie clips’ and a video made in the late 1980s. That all adds together. I don’t think she embellished her story. She probably didn’t have to.

Wow. It is so disturbing. And I know, alas, that stuff like this happens. Breaks my heart. Wish I could help each and every child who is suffering as such.

I am going to buy the book. I want my 13-year old to read it. It will do her good.

The movie had, unfortunately, some critical gaps. Rather vague on how the kids started going to school in Welch, West Virginia and how the parents supported them in that endeavor. basically nothing in the movie about that. That intrigues I.

Also how the eldest, ‘Lori’, made it to New York. I am sure all of this has by now been documented and treaden over. It was all new to I since I do not follow trends, best sellers, book clubs or book lists. So, I didn’t know how famous this book was. But, now I do.

I totally recommend the movie. Must watch. In the end very heartening — folks with the gumption, talent & fortitude to overcome seemingly impossible adversity..

50 degrees on December 10 2019 New Hampshire Anura Guruge


Yes, we were told to expect it and it was 48°F (9°C) when I went for my 11pm perambulations.

Having 50°F days in mid-December is COOL! Melted most of the snow — and ALL of it off the roof. I like that. I have raked the roof yesterday to help with the melt — so it all worked out. All my lights — lasers and tikis — that were on poles stuck in the snow fell over. Had to use a hammer and ‘stake’ to make new holes in the frozen ground, BUT I am no complaining.

Yes, there is a snow storm coming BUT for the 2nd time — and twice in succession — it is a Southern storm. That means we will not get much snow. Folks South of us will get the brunt. I am OK with that. Wouldn’t you be.
