Per the linked presentation, copra was clearly far more than a product, it was a way of life and for decades! Wonder what the folks on those islands do today to support themselves?

With a lot of luck maybe supporting oneself isn't too time consuming in those tropical isles. One hopes!

Haven't heard from Daniel for a while, I hope he's OK. Or even better!

Just realized I'm beginning to shiver sitting in front of my PC, and that's with three layers on! Just checked the outside temp report and says todays high 49F, 34F now. Think it's time for a hot meal to raise my body temp -- thank God for microwave ovens ! How's the temp Seattle way?

Just watched "All Hallows Eve" last night, a peculiar and dividing film!

Haven't seen it, I'll see if Netflix has it.

Here's a modest resolution copy with Spanish subtitles on Youtube.

"ALL HALLOWS' EVE (2013)" FULL MOVIE = PELICULA COMPLETA + SUBTITULOS EN ESPAƑOL!!! - YouTube

Not sure it's one to buy, but it's got its quirks. Definitely belongs in the Halloween/Horror class of filmography.

Thanks Trevor, Netflix doesn't have it.

It has nasty elements, though that's hardly unusual for "modern" horror. Despite that, there's some cleverness present and if you're a horror fan, it may be worth checking out.

PS. For something a little more mainstream crazy, you may want to check out "The Starving Games" (spoof of "The Hunger Games")!

"All Hallow's.." is backwards on Youtube, but thanks for the link! "The Hunger Games" makes valuable current political comment, but the writer leaves me flat.

Darn, sorry about the Youtube link, I just viewed it awhile and sure enough, it's reversed ! Fortunately, the story is unimpaired, just an image reversal. Its unpleasantness is no less revealed !

I've a copy of "The Hunger Games", but have yet to view it (one of many). Still, I do think "The Starving Games" has merit -- purely as entertainment of course!

The second book of Ms Collin's Hunger trilogy is now on celluloid. I'm not in a hurry to see it but I probably will, given time. The flick garnered a good review somewhere on the web yesterday. The quality of her writing leaves something to be desired, so I doubt I'll read beyond the first book. Can I write any better than she? Doubtful, tbh.
