    Interesting choices for Christmas watching. For me I get to celebrate on the 6th January.....but on Christmas day I usually watch *Enemy at the Gate* despite the attempt to distort a lot of the truth about Stalingrad, it does attempt A LITTLE to portray the spirit of the Russian people to overcome the evil and brutality inflicted by the Nazis and the will of a people to never let the barbarians win. Like Leningrad, Stalingrad, the films in Russian and English, show the will and strength of people to overcome this monster of mob mentality that engulfed Europe and those who fought back and often perished, so many of us today are allowed a voice.

    For me, at this time of indulgence , it is a good time to remember what sacrifices were made by so many to fight the Nazi monster and the millions who supported it (and indulged as they slaughtered Europe and whole peoples).

    Rapid double left-click in the field of the fire for full screen if the video appears truncated. Turn on your sound for full effect.

    edit: I had to turn this off after a half-hour. My room was getting too warm.

    I have been blessed in my life in that I have had the opportunity to travel to more than 69 countries in better times. Vacations now are usually repeat visits to countries my family and I enjoy most or to a place we have in Buzios, Brazil. We live in a different world now and safety is a big issue for me. Nevertheless, two countries that I have not been to that I am thinking of are the UAE and the Maldives. Traveling is the best!

    It's still better times, hednic. I've traveled, too, never counted the countries...upwards of 15, anyway, with many repeats. One of my pet peeves is how this darned 24-hour news cycle has mangled our view of reality. There are 7 billion plus people on earth, but on any given day if a handful go berzerk and cause problems for a few others, that's all we hear. That the massively vast majority of us are living peaceful, sane, safe lives never makes the news. I've traveled so many places -- it's gotta be a lot more than 15, must count -- alone and in the company of others and every single time I met the most wonderful people who often stopped my heart with their wisdom and kindness. I hate that our news media has filled us with fear, in contradiction to reality. Most of us will never be harmed in any way by others. Yes, we're all going to die. We don't know where or how, but it will only happen on one day. For that reason, I've stopped a steady diet of the news. If something important happens, I figure I'll hear about it, but I refuse to fill all the good days of my life with media-induced terror.

    I hope you go to the UAE and the Maldives and encounter the splendid people waiting to meet someone like you and be better for it.

    Okay, now that I've got that off my chest, I return you to your regularly-scheduled subject...oh, this is Off-Topic! Perfect.
