We Are Off Early Today,

so straight on with the post,

we bought a small light at the market on Sunday, but it was not really bright enough, as we had to go to the TukCom Center to buy some cases for the DVDs we bought a different type of light to try that,

 this is the original one we bought,

 but it was not quiet bright enough, it looked nice though,

this was the next one we bought, 350 baht for the light and 150 baht for the base, it is bright enough, in fact it has such a pleasing effect we will buy another one next time we go to TukCom or the market, during the day Mark called round for a cup of tea, whilst we spent the day putting the covers around our new DVDs, also I spent some time looking through a couple of stamp catalogues,

in the afternoon/evening we watched  a favorite fo mine, but this time on a BluRay disc, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World, in April 1805 during the Napoleonic Wars, the H.M.S. Surprise, a British frigate, is under the command of Captain Jack Aubrey. Aubrey and the Surprise's current orders are to track and capture or destroy a French privateer named Acheron, a lifelike depiction of life on board ship in those days,

 we the watched the first of two DVDs, Crimes That Shook Britain, the three that we watched were serial Killer Harold Shipman, the Kidnap of Stephanie Slater and the Russell Murders, all not perhaps the nicest of subjects but compelling viewing, 

to round off the evening, The Illusionist, Eisenheim is a magician in early 1900's Vienna, who falls in love with a woman well above his social standing, when she becomes engaged to a Crown Prince, Eisenheim uses his powers to free her and undermine the stability of the royal house of Vienna, a very enjoyable 'magic' movie, with the good guy performing the illusion oh his lifetime, then for us off to bed.
