“Radioactive” (2019) ‘Marie Curie’ Movie On Amazon Prime — Good, Quite Good BUT Not That Radiant.

I hadn’t fully realized it, but one way or another I appear to have a fairly decent idea about Marie Curie’s life. That meant that I was familiar with about 50% of what was in this movie. That was the ONLY reason that it did NOT enthrall me more. I just knew the story.

BUT, if you are not familiar with her marvelous story you will enjoy it MUCH MORE.

Well made. They even include little snippets to educate you on the deep science. That was cute.

They also include clips of nuclear events that happened well after her death — including the ‘Chernobyl‘ accident from 1989. One of the clips included a 1961 US nuclear test blast in Nevada. I guess I had forgotten about that. I was 8 & living in Ceylon.

But, GOOD movie. Definitely worth watching. I enjoyed it. So, I do recommend it. Enjoy. SMILE.

Quite the lady in so many different respects. SMILE.

Someone Despaired Of This Book. They Threw It Out Of ‘A Car’ Window On To The Road.

I found it during my walk. Yes, of course, I picked it up & had a look. It was heavily highlighted (in yellow) & was full of inane annotations. Not sure who threw it out & their connection to the person who annotated the book. Either way someone was not amused. I was. Cracked me up. Yes, a rather stupid book. I do NOT like to see books tossed out, but I can see how someone would despair of this book. SMILE.

It has been an unusually hot Summer. Lots of (near) 90F days. This is taking a toll on the flowers. That was noticeable today. Most of the flowers were gone. But, still plenty of flora. I just wanted to share. ENJOY. SMILE.

For Whom Does THIS Bell Toll?

It is at a new ‘bed-and-breakfast’ up-here. I walked by it this morning. Cute. It is on a deck. So, low down. Quite the view from that balcony, however. Just wanted to share.

‘Samsung Watch 3’ Finally Available On Amazon — 48-Hours After It Was On ‘Best Buy’.

by Anura Guruge


Click to access the brand new Amazon listing.


Click to ENLARGE. Google ‘shopping’ still wasn’t showing Amazon.


It was amusing & very obvious. ‘Samsung‘ gave ‘Best Buy‘ precedence — & no doubt ‘Best Buy’ would have had to pay for it dearly. But, they only appear to have got a 2-day head-start.

Amazon has just started listing it — offering more or less immediate shipping.

That is good. I refuse to buy items such as this from ‘Best Buy‘.
