Wow, Wow, Wow.

Come on. The Sri Lankans aren’t that bad. They can bat a bit. 181 in 50 overs. I don’t buy that.

Losing by 8 wickets with 15, yes 15, overs to spare.

I started to have suspicions yesterday. Now I am convinced.

This has to match fixing — and please don’t insult my intelligence, limited as it may be, that there is no match fixing. Match fixing as we are again learning re. IPL, is very much alive and kicking.

I don’t know. I am not happy. I don’t mind Sri Lanka losing. But …

Where else but Stonehenge, one of my favorite stomping grounds in Britain. Went there for the first time in 1973. Took my new puppy, a border collie with me. In those days there were no restrictions whatever about walking up to the stones. You parked the car and just trampled across the grass field. The puppy, named Rousseau (after the Swiss philosopher), lifted his leg up against each and every stone! That is still my abiding memory of ‘the Henge’. Rousseau peeing against all the stones. Makes me sad when I see all the ‘modern’ precautions and restrictions, but I do understand. I am glad that Rousseau and I got to visit it when it was still, more or less, just a pile of old rocks in an open field.


My diagram of what happens to the Sun



The exact moment when the North Pole is most tipped towards the Sun occurs at 5:04 (am) Greenwich. That means 1:04 Eastern. I will still be up. I will symbolically tip my hat on behalf of you all.

It is a sad day. Winter is on the way. Bummer.

Never understood why folks in NH celebrate this day. The day to REVEL is the December, Winter Solstice. Our ‘ancestors’ knew that. They even had a huge holiday to celebrate. We now call it Christmas.

Well, you can, of course, do whatever you want. This is a free country.

But, I will, as ever, as I always do at the Summer Solstice, sulk and start counting the days to the Winter Solstice — my best day of the year.

FidelityDNS1


I noticed around 11 pm last night that I could not access fidelity.com.

That was strange since I access fidelity 30 – 40 times a day! I tried intermittently till 1 am and found that it was still down. That seemed very strange and unusual. I very rarely see fidelity down.

I tried to access them this morning. They were still down.

I called them up (and the phone number is 1-800-FIDELITY).

I was told the most amazing story.

It is a DNS ‘corruption’ BUT they won’t admit that they obviously have been attacked and attacked bad.

They want ME to contact my ISP and ask for a DNS refresh. Yes, I am on hold with TDS as I type. This is amazing.

This is NOT good.

So this is a heads up.

I will keep you posted.
