Thomas Edison! In the days when we used to play the game "Trivial Pursuit", whenever there was a question about inventors, I would always say, "Thomas Edison" and nine times out of ten, I would be right! I think I have read that he had 1093 patents, the most famous ones, being the light bulb, phonograph and movie camera. I have written of my fascination of inventors before, so you can be sure that I would like to see this film about him. To have Benedict Cumberbatch as Edison...well, that is perfectly fine with me! The film title is "Current War" and is about Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse. (I do hope that the film is not one of those that have been...you know, "made to be edgy for modern times", in Hollywood fashion. We will see.)
Of these two films, I will be honest with you...I know for sure that "The Imitation Game" is worth seeing. Y'all let me know if you see this new film and what you think of it!
This was at the British Library in London which I also highly recommend! If you would like to read more about it and the exhibition that it is connected to, you may do so just here.
Still have lots to tell you about our trip to England! I am doing much better now. Thanks for all your well wishes. Here, I am walking by the sea in Eastbourne...it looks cold but it wasn't, just windy and cloudy. It was over 90 degrees in Georgia on this day in late September, so I was very happy to be beside the sea and to feel that nice sea breeze...
