   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  Oh goodness, I have 2 more books for my reading list. It's great to see this site come to life!

   Carmen  Balogreen, just heard about your surgery and hope you feel better real soon. This is a good time for you to start reading the Elvis Cole series by Crais. Start the series from the beginning if possible ---- you will love them!

   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Good morning all. I never get involved with politics but I had the 7AM news on this morning and I am in awe as to how mesmerized people seem to be with Trump. My gut tells me he is big time trouble for our country and yet numbers say different. Surely this man is not our future.

   StormCnter  Gram, you're a woman after my own political heart.

   Bettijo  I hate to disagree with two of my favorite people on this site, but I think Trump is the best thing to happen to any political campaign in years. He is shaking up the status quo, attacking the politically correct attitude that is destroying our free speech, and making the other candidates address issues they would prefer to avoid. And, perhaps best of all, he is beholden to no one; i.e., he cannot be bought like I think most of our elected representatives have been. I believe he would stand up and fight for this country which he loves as much as we do and wants to make great again. I will vote for him if he is nominated. I am sick of career politicians and lawyers. Give me someone with business experience, who is not afraid to stand up for and fight for We The People. I like Cruz too, but he is not a natural born citizen...not that that kept Obama out of the White House. I think Trump is big time trouble for the liberals.

   Gram77  Not to worry Bettijo. The sharing of our thoughts and feelings is what gets us all to thinking. I am willing to read and think about everything we talk about. That's the shot in the arm The Connection needs.

   MeiDei  Bettijo, Papasparky put out a call for limericks, on the Politics Wall, about The Donald - think you can give it a try and add to those posted?

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  What would I like for a prize for getting Don Taylor? Just friendly cheer up from you. Lost a dear friend today. Makes me think about my age and how our time is on a calendar that we can't see. Good night's sleep ought to do it.

   StormCnter  I'm sorry about your friend, Gram. I agree that as we get older, we face these losses and our own mortality a lot more often than we want. I hope your night's sleep lifted spirits a bit.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  I needed some relaxation today so I watched two totally fun movies that required very little thinking on my part......Uncle Buc and Sneakers.

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  Hey, Storm......I'm about to wrap up Seabiscuit. I had no idea how involved with the world of racing Bing Crosby was and also I was surprised as to all Red Pollard's injuries. Just felt like sharing.

   StormCnter  Gram, I read a book once about the lives of horseracing jockeys. It was a sort of history of the career from their early days to current status. It's always been a truly hard life and remains difficult. I loved "Seabiscuit".

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  With reference to The Moon Is Blue and how lots of us in our younger days were not allowed to see the movie. The movie I wasn't allowed to see Duel In The Sun. Those were the days.

   StormCnter  Gram, my rancher grandmother didn't worry much about what movies we cousins were allowed to see. If she wanted to see it during any of our visits, we got to see it, too. That's how I saw "Duel in the Sun". I remember nothing about it except that final bloody scene in the broiling sun.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  To those who wanted to know if I am in the flood area. Hubby and I are about 25 miles below Tampa (further south of Tampa ) and not where the worst of it was. Bradenton had mild problems in a few areas but nothing like north of us.

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  Not too long ago I told you folks that I was reading Dead Wake, the story of the sinking of the Lusitania. It's a fairly large book but filled with so much history of that time and what was happening in Germany. What I found extremely interesting was also the history of the submarine. The submarine at that time was almost a crap shoot as to whether it would work and also how terribly unreliable the torpedoes were. I can't recommend this book out of the 3 I mentioned below enough.

   StormCnter  I'm glad you are liking it, Gram. It's not arrived yet, but I've ordered it along with a whole bunch of others.

I'm going to read one of them now, just to scare myself to death. "One Second After", by William R. Forstchen. This book has gotten all kinds of attention and apparently has been cited on the floor of Congress. Newt Gingrich wrote the foreword. It's fiction, about an EMP attack on the U.S.. By the time I finish it, I may have turned into a Doomsday Prepper.
