To get away from all the political noise, I watched these two movies. Both (almost) the same story; one from Germany and one from the US. The German version was far superior; better casting ~ although the little girls who play the niece in each film are both excellent ~ better acting and a more believable unfolding of plot. The role of Martha is played by Martina Gedeck, her niece by Maxime Foerst. When we come to the American version we have Catherine Zita-Jones and Abigail Breslin. Zita-Jones had no "camera chemistry." I must admit that when they were both over I did think about cooking something.

The "Rightie-Tighties" are getting more vicious every day. Their sulfurous messages offer nothing but hate, fear and despair. There is not a word of hope, of uplift, of a brighter day. It saddens me that at this time in our nation's life this sort of meanness can fill the airwaves, TV screens and newspapers. Instead of telling voters what the Republicans will do for the nation, they talk about what they can't allow the Democrats to do. That's a campaign of ideas? With this sort of talk no national consensus will ever be reached. I fear it will not get better after Tuesday, either.

Three days until the election. Don't forget to vote, early and often!
