There's a docu on George Washington, I heard someone on the radio talking about it, but didn't catch the title. Supposed to be good. Anybody know? I believe it's a recent production.

The wife and I watched “Contagion” the other night...it’s pretty eye opening how similar the plot is to what’s happening now. You’ll feel like an expert watching it because we’re all so familiar with the technical terms and buzzwords.

"The Last Waltz" if you are into some 70s rock. The Band is phenomenal group. In this they do sets with some of the greats: Dylan, Young, Harris, Clapton, Morrison, Muddy Waters to name just a few. Filmed in 1978, directed by Scorsese.

The drummer and lead singer for The Band will seem familiar to you. He's Levon Helms. Played Jack Ridley in "The Right Stuff".

Washington -on Hulu, excellent. I learned a lot about the man and our country, it should be required material in H.S.

Das Boot on Hulu if like you WWII, French resistance and U boats.

New console purchase: Xbox or PS4?

My last console was Nintendo classic. Without NHL and our local rink closed, I need to find something to unwind. I like reading good books, but can only read for about 10 minutes before I fall asleep.

Xbox for the sole reason of the Xbox game pass. Think Netflix, but for games. Every game is downloaded directly to the system, so there is no streaming involved. Best value for games hands down, nothing else even comes close. Every game produced from Xbox game studios is added on day 1 of release, and they have a ton of games from third party developers as well. Those, however, do get removed and replaced from time to time, similar to Netflix movies.

I love single player story games, there are games out there that will let you get lost for days.

PS4 has the better library of exclusives but you can’t go wrong either way.

All of the Uncharted games(recently remastered) like being in an action movie.

Red Dead Redemption 1 and 2 for those who’ve ever seen a western.

Batman Arkham asylum series was amazing.

Spiderman equally makes you feel like a super hero.

Detroit was a good build your own story game that isn’t technically difficult.

Agreed. I have both and you can’t go wrong with either, but PS4 definitely has the better exclusives. Uncharted and Bloodborne make it a no-brainer.

Fantastic Book about bubonic plague in SFO in the 1900s:

"Black Death at the Golden Gate: The Race to Save America from the Bubonic Plauge" - David K. Randall.

Came out in 2019; completely relevant to today; pseudoscience, racism, quarantines, lying politicians (possibly for the good of USA?), big business...

Amazing book. Just finished library copy; must read, and completely relevant to today's events.
