But my last lesson learned - don't believe internet (too much)
I very much appreciate you sharing that yelenav :)

The internet can be fun. Connections made with people half way across the world. Answers to questions that have been rolling around in the head, the world at our fingertips etc etc...yet there is a dark side of it too!!!!

Thank You for that very gentle reminder :)

Hi YelenaV, thank you for sharing the information and the MoMa link! Regrettably I am out of New York in the end of August - commitments fixed months ago that cannot be changed in a sort notice.
Great news Elisabeth, YelenaV & LucaM! My August-September trip overseas is postponed, out of the blue! How wonderful is the power of a good wish! Just a couple of days ago I wished I did not need to do this trip, and instead go side by side with my daughter to see this film...! It's happening!:))

Now that it's a GO with Side by Side (August 31) I went to check up some websites that you people may also be interested in:

I feel sorry for his eyes. My eyes start hurting even after a half a day at my computer LOL.

I love those two times Mr Reeves takes his due time to answer these questions (which were partially impossible to answer anyway, IMHO). He answers the questions honestly and in dignified manner. Too often in interviews people ask "tricky" questions that may be impossible to answer 100 % "correctly". Too often interviews (particularly in the USA) are just pure entertainment rather than being informative. Mr Reeves comes across in a very sympathetic and informative way here.

... I'm adding 'Generation Um' to the list of my favorite films ever.
Both because of the story and the character.
Me too. Just watched it. Loved it! Perhaps writing a short review in a couple of days.

Thanks Elisabeth! We also had a wonderful day today, first went to see a silly-crazy movie "The Campaign", laughing our eyes off. Evening we went to a Philharmonic Concert where one of my long-time favorite Conductors Osmo Vanska (currently in Minnesota) was a visiting guest.(My most favorite conductor is Esa-Pekka Salonen who works in LA). And late night, coming home, found out that "Generation Um" had arrived.

Not my place! I just googled "Ontario cottage country" under images and I picked that pic.:0)
My place is a "blank slate". Therefore no urgency to get up there every weekend. Someday we'll build on it.'Til then between friends and family, we're having fun.
Andromeda-1, did you go there, to Lake Ontario? What was the place like?

I think the pics were nice, just like in my place. Trees, views, everything. How was the lake - swimming-wise? Sand - rock-mud..?
Yes I understood it was a rental. Did you like the house?

Free Breeze - thanks for the links.
It's gonna be a long summer...and the reading will stretch into autumn, maybe winter...
But I'll read them. eventually.
I got something for you yesterday: Google this book:'Everything guide to Understanding Philosophy. The basic concepts of the greatest thinkers of all time made easy'. Written by Kenneth Shouler PhD. Publ by Adams Media, Avon, MA, 2008.$15.95. It is this silly "Everything" series but I got the book anyway and generally, it is OK. Putting all writers into a proper time perspective and "-ism" perspective. I would have loved if somebody gave me this long ago (or sth like this)... as a shortcut. You're welcome.

Second book I bought was James P. Sterba (ed by); Principles of Morality; the Why and the What of it", Westview Press, Philadelphia, PA, 2012. Barnes & Noble about $28. The idea with the study of Ethics & Moral Theory is NOT to be moralist (such as church & puritanical etc that you pointed out), telling you what you SHOULD do. NOT. I agree the word is confusingly similar but the idea is pretty much different. You make moral & ethical decisions for example daily when protecting environment, re-cycling, not eating Brazil beef, tuna fish etc. So normative theorists are NOT moralists. They will never tell you what you SHOULD do. They only make you think and to make your own decisions. To have your own principles and values. That's why I think you might actually like to read them. Welcome.

Third book I bought yesterday was Irving Singer, "Philosophy of Love, Partial Summing-Up", MIT Press, Cambridge, MA, 2009. This professor is the author of the trilogy "The Nature of Love" and "Meaning in Life". The author gives for example the "Much ado about nothing" as one of the illustrations. Welcome- encore.

No. There are many lakes throughout Ontario and Quebec. The lakes I swim in are deep and the temperature is "fresh" (warm spots interspersed with cool areas (or vice versa?)).:0) There are sandy and pebbly areas, but most are Canadian shield meets water.:0)

Lovely! Thank you! Photos are almost exactly like from my Lake House area. Except we have smaller fish in my lake LOL.
