   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  Several books I am taking a look at: Exit West by Mohsin Hamid, The Elephant Whisperer by Lawrence Anthony, The Boat Runner by Devin Murphy, Hero of the Empire by Candice Millard, The Last Suppers by Mandy Mikulencak and the most interesting to me because I lived at the edge of this suburb for many years, Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng.

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  Did a bit of Christmas shopping yesterday. Hubby is always looking for Western history and I found the newest for him. It's Dodge City by Tom Clavin. For me, I came home with Endurance by Scott Kelly. I am so curious about this man's time spent in space I am setting aside Michael Connelly. Rare for me.

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  There are two books I will get for sure from the library. I want the new book on Roosevelt, and The Accidental President. Neither book has anything to do with my political thoughts. I was very young when Roosevelt died and old enough to clearly understand our history when Pearl Harbor was attacked. Back in the day when I was in school and teachers were still teaching us about our history and world history I was hungry for such knowledge. I want to see what these books have to offer.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  Today is a day to sort and decide what to donate. I need something to keep me going and it looks like 3 Men and A Baby is it. It's fun and doesn't require much attention or thinking.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  It's Saturday evening and I can't find anything but football, so I did my usual hunting on odd channels and found a movie I had watched quite a while ago and forgot how good it was. It is from 1993 with Bridget Fonda, Gabriel Byrn (yum ), Ann Bancroft and a very young Durmot Mulroonry. One hint, she is a trained killer but hates her life.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  I posted a remark on the main page about the movie The Mountain Between Us. It was lucky I got it posted there. My computer is totally nuts today. Anyway my opinion of the movie was that it was dull and slow and the movie spent too much time drudging through snow. The dog was really cute.

   StormCnter  Gram, I do that all the time, post a Movie comment on the main page. You can delete it, you know.

But, thanks for the tip about the film.

   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Rarely do I go to movies, but got an invite from some gals to go with them to see The Mountain Between Us. The book is excellent, however, personally I think the movie was weak. That often happens. You want to see an excellent movie, see The Crystal Palace.

   Richdet  Actually the title is "The Glass Castle." Movie version of the Jeannette Walls memoir.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  Just happened across an old Harrison Ford movie, Witness. Lots of action in the beginning and if I remember correctly there is a wild shoot out at the end.

   StormCnter  Witness was a good movie. Kelly McGillis and Lucas Haas played the boy. Danny Glover is also in the cast.

   MeiDei  I looked up "Witness" to refresh my memory, yes a good movie - but did you know that a movie (documentary ) by the same name came out in 2016 to a wide range of critical acclaim. It is the story of Kitty Genovese - the gal who was stabbed to death & erroneously reported by the NYT as being witnessed by 38 people who did nothing.

   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  This has nothing to do with anything except that I figured out my computer problem all by myself and that is really something! I contacted Spectrum and told them my problem and in the end the tech suggested I call my computer guy. Well, I decided to just start poking icons and when I saw one that looked like it might work I went for it and I got my problem fixed. : )

   Phooey  I'm happy for you Gram. However, poking around the internet can get someone in a world of hurt.
God bless you Gram77... you have been through a lot the last few years.
