   StormCnter posted on Suggested Reading  My daughter works in downtown Austin. Anyone remember the best-selling book of a few years ago, Philipp Meyer's "The Son"? It's about several generations of a Texas family. The book is being filmed for television near my daughter's office. She says it's weird going into the bathroom and sharing it with extras dressed in Republic of Texas period costumes. Pierce Brosnan stars, but she hasn't spotted him yet.

   StormCnter  Mei, if your sound is still wonky, you can click CC in the lower right for closed captioning.

   MeiDei  I did, and left a comment that a well=placed skillet lobbed appropriately would bring him into reality : )

   MeiDei  Thank you Storm, I never pass up a viewing of this movie!

   Gram77  Loved this scene, not to mention the entire movie!!

   MeiDei  Well I just watched it on a poor quality you tube link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DLYQSj7

and still the ending had me reaching for the Kleenix.

   StormCnter posted on Suggested Reading  For something slightly different, try the non-fiction "Pirate Hunters", Robert Kurson. I bought it to send my son-in-law, but decided to read it instead. I'm halfway through and enjoying every page. Two over-aged, internationally acclaimed divers are roped into looking for the sunken pirate ship, "Golden Fleece" in the Caribbean. Here is the Goodreads review:

   MeiDei  Sounds like very good reading; history, adventure and a true accounting - what more could you want.

   StormCnter  I don't know, Mei. The video works. My nephew posted it on his Facebook page with the title "Mostly I like to dance".

   MeiDei  It's my computer challenging my disposition again, I asked for help on computer wall. Can't even see the one I posted on movie wall.
August 14 at 08:31 EST .


   Mildred  I also got a blank black page with IE. Following Tulsa's sage advice, I used Firefox and the video was there. That little guy sure has all the right moves.

   MeiDei  I lost Firefox & can't upload anything - how about the you tube address ...
August 15 at 06:13 EST .


   StormCnter   https://youtu.be/O-RLMlz5UrU Try that, Mei. I'm sorry you're having trouble viewing it.

   MeiDei  so cute I watched it twice! Thanks for the link.

   StormCnter posted on Pet Peeves  I hate for strangers to call me by my first name without being invited to do so. Petty? Yes, but it annoys me.
August 12 at 05:51 EST .



   FlatCityGirl  And receptionists at doctor's offices, etc., people I've never laid eyes on on, calling me Hon, or Dear or Sweetie.

I think it's demeaning.

   StormCnter  Years ago, my mother took my grandmother to my mom's doctor for a checkup. They had never met. When the doctor called my grandmother "Mama", she picked up her purse and walked out.

   FlatCityGirl  "Younger than you" people often believe they are being respectful when they address you as "Mama," or they are endearing themselves to you when they call you "Hon." I don't know why that is.

   MeiDei  I prefer being addressed as Mrs ___ until I'm comfortable with the person - then 1st name OK. When I taught CCD and only knew the name(s ) of the most "verbal" I called everyone else darlin' 'til I knew their nqmes - no one seemed to mind - wouldn't do so w/an adult. I often go through a register w/the same 2 ladies (cashier & bagger ) - they've taken to calling me "sweet lady" and I call them "my lovelies" - none of which is obvious but it makes us smile and banter.

   StormCnter posted on Suggested Reading  Lots of good discussions going on with this Wall.
I just finished "The Good Father" by Noah Hawley. A sobering, engrossing story of a prominent, accomplished NYC physician whose barely grown son is charged with assassinating a presidential candidate. This one is hard to put down. I recommend it.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Mei tells me I should make an occasional appearance, although she clearly is doing a wonderful job. So, here is my contribution. Mei will know why. The movie opens this month.

   StormCnter  When I was a kid, the Tarzan and Robin Hood books were considered boys' reading. I devoured them, however. I want to see this film.

   Gram77  Years ago there was a Tarzan movie made, Greystoke? I thought it was great. Hope this one is just as good and yes I want to see it.

   MeiDei  Wasn't it a chimp that was w/Tarzan - in this version it seems a gorilla takes its place or am I confused?

   MeiDei  Tarzan & BFG both opened w/good reviews but suffered at the box office - much gnashing of teeth.
