Thanks SK for reposting this. It sounds like you didn't really like the Reacher books at first. Did you continue reading and become a fan later on, or give up after the first couple of books? That would be a reasonable thing to do after two tries! Did you watch either of the two movies?

Nope, haven?t read another book or seen the movies.

This talk of a new Jack Reacher show reminded me of when I started to read the books.

I was very disappointed with this. I got about 70 pages into it and it just hadn't grabbed me and I thought, "Mmm, this doesn't bode too well, I've still got 450 pages to go." It slowly got a little interesting but if it wasn't for my hard and fast rule regarding books and films that I stick it out till the end, I would've given it away. It reminded me of watching a really long film and the painful wait just for it to slowly get to the conclusion.


I've started the second book in the series, Die Trying but again after 100 pages it hasn't grabbed me and this one is even longer but I'll reserve final judgemnet until I've finished.

This didn't improve on the first novel. The same drawn out feeling like it was a chore just to get through it.

I know it's only fiction but there was one page in this book that I just couldn't stop shaking my head in bewilderment.

Reacher and FBI Agent Holly Johnson are in the woods and come across a body that has been crucified. Of course she can't handle the sight of it and throws up. Reacher cuts the body down and buries it. Before the end of the page, they're naked and having sex in the dirt! I mean, come on, are you kidding me?

Maybe Clint?s next film will be about Covid?

If Clint appears in it, his character may fall victim to the virus?  ???

"The Sunflowers of Madison County"! :D

 ;D ;D ;D

I wouldn't call it a favorite but The Birth Of A Nation is definitely up there for historic silent films.


That's brilliant. Something you'd see in a wildlife magazine or the like. 8)

Tense WWII film starring Tom Hanks who is captain of a ship in the North Atlantic during the early part of 1942. Their mission is to escort merchant ships in what is known as ?The Black Pit?.

I enjoyed this very much and at only 90 minutes it didn?t drag on.

I highly recommend the doco Identical Strangers. Incredible story of a study of triplets separated at birth and studied growing up with the adopted parents totally unaware their adopted child had two brothers.

Hey... the board seems to have changed and my avatar has disappeared. Any ideas anyone ?

I can still see it. 😎

Is there a new look to the board, or is my view a little off right now?

Yes, I tried to get on the board last night but was getting a safari error message. Looks like a little updating has been done over night. Good job Richard. 😎😎😎

Are there any series on Netflix that are light and comedic? With all that's going on today, I can't get into shows that I used to enjoy. I really loved Schitt's Creek, but got through that series pretty quickly. Need light entertainment these days!

There's a search engine where you can find what is streaming on which services called Just Watch, but it's mostly for the US. I don't know if there's a European version.

I have that app on my phone and was going to post about it but thought it was just an Aussie website. Might be available worldwide for each country.

There was a small clip on Alison’s instagram from
his birthday party. From what I could see, a couple of people had masks and nitrile gloves on. They were singing happy birthday to him and he made a funny face and after he said ’knock it off’ laughing. :)

Yeah, I saw that on Facebook. Certainly looked like he didn’t want a fuss made about his birthday. :)
