“Scottish Mussel” (2015) Movie On “Amazon”: Cute Enough Story, BUT Kicker Is Learning About Scottish Pearls!
This movie, ‘Scottish Mussel‘ appeared in my Amazon Prime Video recommendation list. It looked vaguely promising. So, the other night when we decided we should try a comedy to get a break from murder-mysteries we gave it a spin.
And then we learnt about Scottish pearls and, boy, am I glad. I felt that there was a gaping hole in my knowledge.
Movie is not something to write home about. Some magnificent shots of the eternal beauty of bonny Scotland and there are some funny bits. But, we watched it to the end because the Scottish pearl angle was so intriguing.
So, don’t watch it as a comedy. Instead treat it as an amusing documentary of Scottish pearls.
George Pell (b. 1941, 77-years old) was convicted of ‘sodomy’
in December 2018.
He was given a 6-year prison sentence.
He has been serving that sentence since at least February 2019 (if not earlier).
This was an APPEAL, for having conviction completely overturned, that was filed earlier this year.
If he wins this appeal he will be released from prison.
If he loses he will have to finish his 6-year sentence. He will not be asking for it to be reduced.

Black Billionaire ‘Robert F. Smith’ Has To Be 2019’s ‘Man Of The Year’ For His ASTOUNDING Generosity To 430 Graduating ‘Kids’!
This is PRETTY ASTOUNDING!
Now that is what you call GENEROSITY.
He Made My Day. He brought tears to my eyes.
What a marvelous human being.
You have to watch this to see the JOY
— especially among those on the stage.
The full 35-minute speech. Worth watching too.
I will confess that prior to this story I had never heard of him and can’t claim that ‘Morehouse’ has ever registered in my mind.
But, as of today, he will be MY MAN. What a man. What generosity. Such a wonderful windfall for the graduates. Yes, some of them had $200,000 loans. I will admit that that is crazy. But, they don’t have to worry about that now.
Extraordinary man. Comes from good, educated lineage. Both parents had Ph.Ds. Impressive.
This is what GOOD NEWS is all about. Really made my day. Watching the videos (above) brought tears to my eyes.
This is what the U.S. is supposed to be.
This is what greatness is all about.

Must Watch YouTube video.
3-days ago I told you how I felt.
Made my day.
Obviously the muslims appreciate her sincerity, commitment & compassion.
How GREAT for the whole world.
Terrible, uncalled for tragedy. Then, at least, you have moments like this.
Thank YOU, New Zealand.
Thank YOU, Jacinda Ardern.

This was 9:41pm, Monday, February 18, 2019 — ahead of the ‘Super Moon‘ on the 19th. The moon was bright and had been all evening/night. I had taken some previous picture too. Pretty impressive. Wanted to share with you. Enjoy.
Given that I was a HUGE Cat Stevens fan I can never look at moonshadow without his song playing in my head. So, I wanted to share that with you too since I am sure that some of you have never had the privilege of getting to know THE Cat. So, here … Enjoy it too.
‘Kapruka.com‘ is branching out. A first for them, and I am sure there will be many more down the road.
Cute. A tad chintzy, but that is the Sri Lankan-way. Definitely a good start.
This was the write-up that came in the e-mail promoting the video. Classic Sri Lankan English. Not even Trump can beat our English. Enjoy.

I am not sure whether this is a new exhibit or whether it never fully registered with me previously. We go to the ‘Museum of Science‘ at least thrice a year, and have done for years and years. So, not much I haven’t seen.
But, I saw this yesterday. I knew what it was as soon as I saw it. Reading the accompanying sign only confirmed what I knew.
Neat. But, I am not 100% happy with the depiction. They seemed to have it garbled. It was unlikely to have been a ruin, in such disrepair, when folks were still living there! So, don’t call it ‘the ruins’ and show people still climbing it with ladders.
Also doesn’t explain why it is called the ‘White House‘. Yes, you can just about see the white building at the back. They believe it was painted white to reflect heat.
Well I have a LOT of posts on this blog about this ‘White House‘.
So, if you are interested just do a search on ‘White House Canyon‘.
