Part 1 of 2, The Great train Robbery.

Might not interest some of you but it was big news when it happened, only thing that got it off the front page was JFK a few months later.

I remember it all, they found Ronald Biggs here years later and he got away to South America. Most of the money was never found, 2.6 million English pounds then is equal to around $60 million US now so it was a big deal.

Most of them didn't end up too well though. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-21619150

Was interesting to me anyway.

Lol i watched United skates (hbo) last night.... mind blown. Despite going to an inner city school, roller skates were the last thing i would have thought were "cool." Really cool history about the bloods and crips truce being negotiated there.

I love colored gemstones and tend to watch the jewelry shows.

If you are looking for an emerald ring for your sweetheart, in 18ct gold with diamonds, The gemshopping network has them right this minute for $500.00ct. That is a steal.

May's birthstone, heck put it away for christmas!

Watched “ Mean Streets” last night on Netflix.
Good movie, had never heard of it before. Deniro and Keitel looked like little kids back then.

Looking forward to Martin Scorsese’s new one, The Irishman.
