Yeesus Marta!That was an amazing experience -- like seeing a sculpture emerge from a block of marble or wood.My grandson missed the part where he first showed the technique of matching color, not painting anything, just matching color -- and a painting of a photo of his grandfather emerged on the canvas. Later, while recreating the Vermeer, he got very interested -- we'll watch again later.Edit:Here's the trailer: 
Now, that interests me (are you sure you're not older). Thanks for the recommendation and the perspective. I bought it -- as I think it is something the family will want to watch together, and multiple times.
Sol, I think you give me too much credit. I first learned programming in 1956, before there were programming languages, and few assemblers. I was employed in the programming industry until 1980 -- and learned most of the popular programming languages. To this day I have an active interest in programming -- that's why I learned Swift ... BTW, I'm not a very good programmer.By comparison, my Dad and Uncle were self-taught pioneers in radio, and tried to...

Thanks for some nice thoughts about me!Though, I don't think that I'm an anomaly.Long story, long:My Dad worked hard all his life -- he and Mom raised 3 kids & all the hassle/expense. After the kids were married, he worked hard, made good money, saved, paid off his mortgage early, and invested.They lived a pretty good life and started to enjoy themselves, travel -- bought expensive clothes, etc. ... Mainly my Dad liked lightweight comfortable shoes and thin high quality...
