Spell Check Colonel – KFC

Spell Check Colonel – KFC

I found out today that my ios spell check doesnt know who Colonel Sanders is. I kept asking Seri or whatever for help, but it just didn’t happen.  Finally my wife stepped up to the plate and helped me out.

It all started with a message to her. We were talking about how things were going in our respective days and I told her I was going to go to KFC. Then came the confusion. Cornal, chornel, cernal. Damn…

I Couldn’t Spell Colonel.

I was totally out of control. And there was no spell check working for me. Oh sure it would flag it as incorrect but couldn’t understand which word I was trying to spell. Damn this technology. We may as well be back in the 70s when we had to look up everyting in a dictionary.

An actual dictionary paper book. Not Google .What gives? The wifey also pointed out that Colonel Sanders was an old man. Well, so am I. Old and tired. If she hadn’t helped me, I would’ve had to open a browser and google how to spell it. Thanks honey.

Being a weak speller kinda SUX

Crime Of Old: “The Suspect”

What does a man in Edwardian England do when his marriage is hopeless?  Well, he should not fall in love with another woman.  This is what Philip Marshall in The Suspect (1944) does, and his outraged wife, Margaret Hamilton as the Wicked Witch of the West, refuses to give him a divorce.  The presence of young Mary, Philip’s love interest, keeps him in town and makes him desperate.  Ergo he kills his wife, in a murder  plot not exactly believable.  Very easily he becomes The Suspect.

This Robert Siodmak film is an Old Hollywood crime story set in Old London.  In polished black and white, it isn’t anything important but it is entertaining enough, what with, for one thing, Charles Laughton in the leading part.  Rosalind Ivan is good and true as the shrewish wife, and although I regard Ella Raines as perfectly passable as Mary, I wish Universal had hired a Brit, not an American, for the role.  Not bloody likely:  other women in the film are American too.
