“The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society” (2018) Movie On Netflix — Outstanding, Heartwarming & Funny.

YouTube trailer


Yes, I loved it. But, then again it was like bespoke for I. All the elements that appeal: British, historical, pigs, books, London & islands.

Great story. Haven’t checked whether it is based on a true story. But, the German occupation of Guernsey was very real & painful. This story very could have happened even if the name of the Society is a tad contrived.

I even recognized — & even more surprisingly correctly placed two of the cast. That is very unusual for I.

Yes, I am sure it is not for everyone. But, if you are into WWII period drama, literature, humor, pigs & a bit of romance you can’t go wrong. Yes, it is predictable, but that doesn’t detract. SMILE.

I enjoyed it. Not sure it can be repeated per se.

Why Biden’s 306 Electoral Votes Is To 232, WHEN Trump’s 304 Was To 227.

by Anura Guruge


I noticed this when they show the 2020 vs 2016 comparison chart on TV.

If Biden got 306 to Trump’s 232; how did Trump get 304 to Hillary’s 227. Does NOT compute.

There is a TOTAL of 538 Electoral Votes, which is how we get the MAGIC 270. Half of 538 is 269. 270 is one above that.

So, why the discrepancy … & the Biden/Trump tally MIGHT end up different at the very end.

FAITHLESS ELECTORS!

Electors who did NOT cast their votes like they are supposed to!

That is what happened in 2016. There were 7 faithless votes. Now it should be clear.
