Miss Marple said we are all alloted three score and ten years, and like Miss Marple I shall soon be overdrawn.
Now, having lived 70 years, I will use this blog to record my observations and try to answer the question, "Is the hokey-pokey really what it's all about?

THERE IS NO MURDER IN PARADISE
It is not
often that you find a movie as good as the book. I can only name a half dozen: The Name of the Rose, Dr. Zhivago, Catch 22…
watched Child 44. I have read the book by
Tom Roy Smith and it was interesting; but this movie was every bit and riveting as
don’t care for spy or war movies; but, I do tend to read stories taking place
during Stalin’s Russia. Child 44
takes place in Russia and the Ukraine where ‘there is no murder in paradise.’ A young Russian officer becomes obsessed
with apprehending a serial child killer and as a results is stripped of his
rank and, with his wife, sent to the camps.
It is a
great movie and a good read. The Ol'Buzzard
