My Mitten: eLectrified
Watched a DVD "America's Castles: The Auto Baron Estates". They showed the homes that Henry Ford, Edsel Ford and the Dodge Family built in the Detroit area.
A fun read!

This is a Hallmark movie based on the Newberry Honor Book of the same title by Christopher Paul Curtis. The movie is quite true to the book, which is always a treat--but read the book to get the most out of this powerful story, set in 1963. It starts in Flint, Michigan (hometown of the author) on a cold winter day. The main character is Kenny Watson, one of three African-American children in the Watson family. Kenny's mom longs to escape the cold and visit her mother and other family members down in Birmingham, Alabama, where racial tensions are heating up as civil rights advocates challenge Alabama's forced segregation laws in the public schools. This is historical fiction at its best and is worth a watch--and a read--for all ages.
