Daily Thoughts 12/26/2014

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I watched several movies this week. Godzilla was mildly entertaining and Guardians of the Galaxy was just plain silly.  I also watched the Charlie Brown Christmas Special.   The best film which I took out was Rise of the Black Pharaos which is a PBS movie.  It is the story of the 25th dynasty of Egypt when the Cushites often called the Nubians as well conquered Egypt.  Cush is what is now the Sudan in Africa.  We learn that the Nubians were a conquered colony of Egypt and that they produced most of Egypts gold.

We also learned that after the 25th dynasty fell, the next Egyptian pharaoh tried to wipe out all traces of a Cushite dynasty in Egypt; destroying statues, defacing imagery, and denying history.  This is a really interesting archeological documentary.

I also read a little bit more of Leading the Life You Want.

This is the film.  There is a book with the same title.
