“The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society” (2018) Movie On Netflix — Outstanding, Heartwarming & Funny.

YouTube trailer

Yes, I loved it. But, then again it was like bespoke for I. All the elements that appeal: British, historical, pigs, books, London & islands.

Great story. Haven’t checked whether it is based on a true story. But, the German occupation of Guernsey was very real & painful. This story very could have happened even if the name of the Society is a tad contrived.

I even recognized — & even more surprisingly correctly placed two of the cast. That is very unusual for I.

Yes, I am sure it is not for everyone. But, if you are into WWII period drama, literature, humor, pigs & a bit of romance you can’t go wrong. Yes, it is predictable, but that doesn’t detract. SMILE.

I enjoyed it. Not sure it can be repeated per se.

Why Biden’s 306 Electoral Votes Is To 232, WHEN Trump’s 304 Was To 227.

by Anura Guruge

I noticed this when they show the 2020 vs 2016 comparison chart on TV.

If Biden got 306 to Trump’s 232; how did Trump get 304 to Hillary’s 227. Does NOT compute.

There is a TOTAL of 538 Electoral Votes, which is how we get the MAGIC 270. Half of 538 is 269. 270 is one above that.

So, why the discrepancy … & the Biden/Trump tally MIGHT end up different at the very end.


Electors who did NOT cast their votes like they are supposed to!

That is what happened in 2016. There were 7 faithless votes. Now it should be clear.
