IF you are really familiar with this 1876 election you will immediately know what I am concerned about. SMILE.
IF you are NOT, you better learn about it QUICK — & the above will help.
It is scary, ONE of the CENTRAL issues is still the same — 144-years later. That should send chills down your spine.
This election was SCARY.
BUT, it, ‘The Day’ & the country were SAVED by one man, & one man alone. Then President, the estimable Ulysses S. Grant.
And U. S. Grant is the CRUCIAL difference.
U. S. Grant was scrupulously honest & hell bent on trying make sure that this election was fair & equitable.
In 2020 WE WILL HAVE THE OPPOSITE!
Everything Grant did, we will see in reverse.
YOU have to learn about this 1876 election — pronto.
So, Android 10 in March, Android 11 in September. 6-months apart.
The update was NO problem, BUT I immediately discovered that holding the Power-Button to capture a screenshot had gone away! Damn. I loved that & used it often.
There are other ways to get a screenshot BUT they are not as handy.
Why can’t developers leave stuff alone?
I am sure they are going to have to put this back. SMILE.
Strange. V. strange movie. Really a documentary disguised as a movie. The ‘freewheeling’ & ‘unconventional’ terms used in the movie description are spot on.
You are probably much better watching one of the many — much better — videos on YouTube.
Kind of felt cheated. Didn’t come close to what I was expecting.
I would find it hard to recommend this movie. Sorry!
This review on IMDb.com gets it spot on.
Frybread & diabetes.
To make it worse, there is a segment, early on, when one of the contestants berates two of her coworkers for having an unhealthy lunch & reminds them of THEIR diabetes! Irony. Her doing the shouting — & her doing the frybread cooking — is borderline obese, if NOT outright obese. She probably has diabetes too.
Made me so SAD.
These POOR people.
They lack education, insight, MONEY & resources to understand & control DIABETES. I know. I have spoken to Navajo about it. I have bought them fruit.
It is a HUGE problem & FRYBREAD does NOT help.
That is what makes me so MAD. The last thing these good, decent people need is Frybread.
Very cute. Lavishly produced. Lots of famous faces. Very clever.
Highly recommended. I was mesmerized. Beautiful settings. WOW.
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.
Wow. Wow. WOW! What a story. There is no indication that some, if not all, of this ‘twisted’ story is based on real facts. I am torn on that. The implication that it is fictional — & WHAT a story it is. I am AWE as to how somebody could weave all of this in such a manner.
Gripping is an understatement.
I really haven’t given surrogacy much thought — over my life. So, I really can’t relate to the moral & ethical aspects of it. To I it seems like a fairly reasonable ‘deal’.
Trust me on this. This is QUITE the story. I even opted to finish watching Episode 4 rather than cricket. That happens very rarely. SMILE.
“Ernesto’s Manifesto” (2019) Movie On Amazon Prime — Totally Mindless, Implausible BUT Real Good ‘Feel-Good’.
The cricket was rained off, so I thought I would grab a quick movie for a change of scene. Kind of glad I grabbed this one. Suspected that it would be treacly. It was, but in a decent, semi-good way. Watchable — since it is so mindless & predictable! Implausible beyond the pale. Crazy stupid. But, has a nice feel good touch. Just let it wash over you. Not sure I would explicitly pay to watch this. It was ‘free’ for I on Amazon Prime — & I pay for Amazon Prime not for the free movies. So, I consider the movies free — provided I am not renting one.
So, that is it. Mindless (& stupid) BUT feel-good. So, you decide.
