Netflix “A Fortunate Man” (2018) Movie — One Of The Most Powerful Movies I Have Seen In A Long Time. Sobering.
ALAS in Danish.
Netflix is DUBBED English.
Absorbing. Mesmerizing tale. I so wanted it to be ‘based on a true story‘ — BUT I do NOT think it is. Shame.
I also learnt (just now), when I looked it up on IMDb, that it has started off as a 4-episode mini-series. Netflix has to have spliced them together to create a 2 hour 47 minute movie.
Definitely worth watching. Only for MATURE audiences, NOT because of the brief nudity BUT because it is a deep, profound movie.
One of the best movies I have seen of late.
Listen LIVE To THOUSANDS Radio Stations Around The World — By Just Clicking On Them On ‘Google Earth’. WOW!
My wife sent me the link to this — she having seen it on a local library site.
Beyond Cool. WOW.
Then I did the OBVIOUS, for I. I tried Sri Lanka. WOW. WOW. WOW.
This is amazing. This is magical.
Yes, it is eating up Internet bandwidth. SMILE.
But, you have to try it.

Today, Sudanese Cardinal Gabriel Zubeir Wako turned 80 & as such ceased to be an elector.
9-days from now, on March 8, 2021, Cardinal Napier will also turn 80. That will bring the number down to 126 — barring any deaths.
Then there is a hiatus till June before the next elector ages out.
I will keep you posted.

She is 89-days old, today. 1-day she of being 3-months.
She is a handful, BUT what a joy. A lot of fun. Plays with everything & anything. LOVES snow shovels. She attacks them while we try to shovel. Good job that we love her. We stand there till she is done. Takes 3-times as long to shovel. But, for obvious reasons, does not like my monster snow blower.
I had no idea. I was confused the first time I heard it used in that context. Appears that in 12th Century England it WAS the word for a whorehouse. Routinely used.
I learnt this via the latest Amazon Audible book I am listening, viz. “A Mortal Bane”. See below. Kind of neat. I can see how this word could evolve over time.

GV80 SUV driven by Tiger Woods vs smaller, sedan, the G70.
Then a few months ago Genesis entered my life. I have to get a newer car than the 19-year Jaguar XJ8 that I drive. It has limited safety features & I am starting to worry about its reliability. So, for the long trips I do, I have started renting a car/SUV.
So, in Oct/Nov I started looking around for a car that would meet my needs. Though it broke my heart I ruled out another Jag. I do NOT trust their reliability — especially at the crazy prices they want for a fairly new one.
I toyed with a convertible BUT I also need, at a minimum, FWD — given the snow — & ideally, AWD. FWD/AWD convertibles are a rare commodity. Then, I compromised on a moonroof. Googled for “AWD moonroof” — &, of course, it could NOT be German. The KIA ‘Stinger’ kept on popping up. I heard good things about the Stinger. But, it got me thinking. Hyundai is the higher/more luxurious KIA. So, what did Hyundai have to offer. That is how I discovered the Genesis G70.
So, here is the irony. Just about the time Tiger Woods was involved in his accident, Teischan & I were at a Genesis dealing talking G70s. First time we had been to a Genesis dealership. Kind of uncanny. What a coincidence.
