____________
Click here to see the trailer for Stephen Spielberg's Ready Player One, currently scheduled to debut March 30th. Look for the DeLorean. (Hint-it's moving quickly and is black and you're more likely to find it if you watch one of the explanatory videos that elaborates on the trailer.) If you want to, stay on the YouTube page and see lots more about Ready Player One. After all, it's a movie about the native online generation.

Seabiscuit Wins Our Unbridled Enthusiasm

At our recent meeting, Seabiscuit: An American Legend, by Laura Hillenbrand, was described with unbridled enthusiasm. As we went around the circle, more and more positive aspects of the book were pointed out. If I remember correctly, Patty has done a lot of horseback riding, Loretta went to the Kentucky Derby on her honeymoon but didn't see the Biscuit there, I lived near the Pimlico track for a while long after Seabiscuit's day, and several others have been to the races.
IMHO, the movie is worth seeing, but the book was better! It is fun to see the races on the screen
