Weekend at the College Point Multiplex

I certainly have mentioned several times in this journal of the convenience of the College Point Multiplex when there is inclement weather.  Yesterday it snowed heavily as we walked over there.  I was pleasantly surprised to see the film Hidden Figures, which considered Black women who worked for NASA at the Langley Air Force base in the early 1960s.  They had to fight racial prejudice as they helped perform calculations for the Mercury Space Program.  Back then the computers were quite primitive, so mathematicians had to do most of the work.

Today was "dig out day" as we recovered from about 6 inches of snow after 3 inches were predicted.  The roads were being cleared, but it was very cold and black ice could be a problem.  We walked over to the theater and saw Why Him which considered family issues involved when a college student had a romantic relationship with a silicon valley billionaire.  It wasn't the best movie that I ever saw, but not the worst.  I really have to get out of the house for at least a few hours during bad weather.
