Portsmouth 2014 ‘First Night’
Dec. 1, 2013.

It is official, it is true and it is as it should be.

There will be a ‘First Night‘ in Wolfeboro for 2014, i.e., December 31, 2013 …

Yes, it is true that their Website, their Facebook or that of the Wolfeboro Chamber doesn’t mention that. They are still carrying 2012 and 2011 content.

But, I have checked.

We probably, breaking our tradition of the last few years, will NOT be going this year. The kids are older. We can venture further afield!

IF I find more details, I sure will post them.

Happy New Year, Wolfeboro.

I was, as I had for the last 72 hours, was on a mission to find the body.

Happened to see this YouTube video with the  ‘… body lies …‘ title. So, of course, I had to watch it.

I only spotted Rajapaksa (who I don’t know) because he stuck out … the lone figure in white
… yes, the Sri Lankan national outfit (sans the red scarf) … but, with the red, makes him look like a wannabe pope
(which would, of course, make his Catholic wife rather happy).

So, from what I can see, he stayed on after the open air memorial service earlier this week.

Where is Nelson Mandela’s body?
Dec. 12, 2013.

Mystery deepens.

You would think that there would be ONE official picture.

Don’t get it.

Trust me. I have a nose for such matters. Something is amiss.

We have seen the bodies of plenty of heads-of-state and popes at their funeral.

I come from a culture where the body is invariably on show
— typically properly embalmed given the heat.

Yes, it is ‘Spring’ in South Africa.
I think, as with the fake interpreter, they screwed up.
That would not be unusual for them.
They are good at that and have lots of practice.


CBS News. At least tells us what the body ‘looks’ like. Click to access.


When ‘The Telegraph’ doesn’t show me the body I get WORRIED. Click to access. There is an embedded video.


Well if you hide the pictures there are bound to be FAKES. Click to access.


BBC coverage on YouTube. Click to access video. Still no images of body. SCARY.
