We watched Solo last night on NetFlix. I enjoyed it thoroughly! It was fast-paced, fun, and very loyal to the original Star Wars. The actor who played young Han Solo did a bang up job of creating a young Solo; it was very easy to imagine him growing up to be Harrison Ford’s iconic character.

I watched "The Edge" yesterday. I just happened to come across it - it's about 20 years old. Anthony Hopkins and Alec Baldwin star in it. They're stranded in the Alaskan wilderness from a plane crash, have issues between them, and learn to survive on their own. Beautiful scenery, and some twists and turns in the movie.

Pretty good movie, IMO.

ohmygosh, "The Edge" was one movie I never forgot Cheryl and I think I saw it at the movies back in the day. Yet another example of legendary brilliance of Anthony Hopkins. I'd like to see it again.

It was a good flick, for sure. I agree about Anthony Hopkins, he is a GREAT actor.

The next free documentary I got to take a look at was the documentary called The St. Louis Browns: The Team that Baseball Forgot.

You can see if for free here:

Watch Online | The St. Louis Browns: The Team that Baseball Forgot | Nine Network of Public Media

A documentary made for the local St. Louis PBS network I guess. The link is for a PBS Telethon broadcast so you can cut this down to like 1 hour. We get 3 cutaways for selling a book and DVD.

I really liked it. This is a certainly a baseball team I did not really know about. They really did a fantastic look at the start of this team in the early 1900 hundreds through the 1944 World Series and then the big downfall that ended the team in the early 50's. Lots of interviews with surviving players from that forgotten team.

If you are into baseball or sports this is a documentary to look at. I think this would have been ESPN 30 for 30 worthy.

We no longer have Television but we Roku.
Last night I streamed through Amazon Prime
The Exotic Marigold Hotel (for the Elderly and Beautiful)
It wasn't what I expected, but it was okay I guess

The other night I watched Wild with Reese Witherspoon,
that was an impactful movie.

Can't you pick up local channels by hooking up rabbit ear antennas?

Finally watched Bird Box. I thought it was dreadful, and it gave Mark nightmares. Two hours I’ll never get back!

We probably could, but gosh darn it all, I'm too old to be climbing up on the roof any more!
Hmmm, now that I think of it, I don't see any old time Rabbit Ears up anywheres around us... it's about 100 miles South, through a big mountain range and loads of weather... that may not work

Rabbit ears go on top of a TV, K-Girl. You're thinking of a 6- or 8-foot antenna that mounts on a roof or fireplace chimney...or can be mounted on a pole in your attic. That is where Himself put ours. We can pull TV signals in from Boston and Providence stations - about 50 miles distant. He installed it to be stationary, but you can get all fancy and put a motor on it with controls in the main viewing room and rotate the antenna so it picks up the signal no matter what the weather.
