The Presidents’ Men

22 Feb 2013 – And Women…

lincolnLincoln****Steven Spielberg directs two-time Academy Award winner Daniel Day-Lewis in a drama about the 16th President’s tumultuous final months in office. 1881-65 America was divided by the Civil War and Lincoln pursues a course of action designed to end the war, unite the country and abolish slavery. With the moral courage and determination to succeed, his choices during this critical moment will change the fate of generations to come and the consequences of his own life…

HydePkHyde Park on Hudson****1939, King George VI and his wife Queen Elizabeth (parents of the current Queen Elizabeth II) visited President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s country estate in Hyde Park Ny/USA.  FDR was growing closer to his distant cousin Daisy and eventual mistress, Margaret. No British monarch had ever visited the US before and King George hoped to bolster US support for the UK on the eve of World War II, which broke out less than three months later.

A true story and the real hotdog picnic video is shown in the credits. So do stay for the credits and let me know if it is the original…

Thu: SIN at its best between 0600-0700hrs, cool quite and peaceful. A beautiful morning to try out the new folding bike, not easy with such small wheels and will take some getting used to. The day ended with the sky opening up and pouring rains on the bus back from the movies. The advantage of living in public housing, shaded walkways from the bus stop to the buildings.

What we can really do is to live & love in harmony with one another and hope that it will rub off to one another, ie action speaks louder than words,  but unfortunately there are too many words flying around without action!

Interesting read for wine lovers. Hmmm… wonder how it will taste like:
