As Usual,

Monday was a quiet day for us,

in the afternoon Mark called round for a tea and a chat, after we had said our farewells for some reason one of my rear teeth started a dull painful thud, which got worse as the evening wore on, so a trip to the dentist tomorrow, after our evening meal, which for myself was a bit painful, it was feet up for October Sky, a true life feel good movie, set in Coalwood, West Virginia, in the 1950s all the boys in the town grow up to be coal miners and Homer Hickam has no reason to think he'll be any different, too small to earn a football scholarship, Homer has no way out of his predetermined life -- until the soviet satellite Sputnik flies over the October sky and changes events for ever, a nice feel good movie that actually in some places really happened

we followed that with a disaster movie, Geostorm, the special effects were mind blowingly good, hurricanes, tornadoes, tsunamis, earthquakes, all so realistically done, and the film named after the disaster of a car! what could possibly go wrong? well for the inhabitants of earth pretty much everything, and for those that bought the Geo Storm car a double whammy! but it was made with disaster as in mind and the special effects guys in this movie pulled out all of the stops, to round off the evening a couple from Columbo and we were off to bed.
