Pope Francis co-wrote it with Argentinian-Italian musician Odino Facci. The pope is Argentinean (of Italian descent).

It is titled  “Para que todos sean uno” (“So We Can All Be One”).

Pope Francis performed it during the Palm Sunday public Mass, on March 29, 2015, in St. Peter’s Square, Vatican.

Odino Facci had previously composed a song based on a poem written by Pope John Paul II (#265).

Yes, it is another Anura Guruge Papal Excel spreadsheet.

Yes, it is for another Anura Guruge Pope book. But, that is not the next book. It will be the one after the next. Started working on the data while the next book is being proofed (painfully slowly).

I have another spreadsheet, related to this trip, i.e., Pope Francis’ September 2015 visit to Philadelphia, U.S. Congress, White House, New York, United Nations etc., that I will publish tomorrow.

I just have a feeling that THIS could be THE year!

Yes, the Sinhalese in Sri Lanka have been hoping for the last few years.
Last year looked promising, but in the end there was no cigar.

But, I know that Sri Lankans have been diligently
plugging away at Google.
That is good.

They got the 2nd Sri Lanka Independence Day Google Doodle
this year — though Google got the name wrong!
That was a big deal and I am pleased
for the Sri Lankans.

Nope, I have NOT done anything.
Yes, I could have contacted Google.
They know me.
I did in 2013 to get the famous,
FIRST Google Doodle
for Sri Lanka.

So, I have done MY part.
I am giving others a chance.
They have to learn.

But, I feel fairly confident.

Happy New Year.

Sri Lanka, EVER, has only had two (2) Google Doodles,
this being the second.

Where The State Of New Hampshire Governor Gets Its Revenues.

Interesting slides. I thought YOU might enjoy seeing it. So the State component of our Property Taxes only account for 16.4%. Wow, Meals and Rooms tax. Nearly 12%. I guess that is how we tap into the tourist traffic. $98 million from Interest and Dividends tax. A quick back of a napkin calculation shows that that would mean that all of the TAX PAYING residents of NH make about $1.2 Billion/year from Interest and Dividend. That seems a tad on the light side. Maybe I am wrong on that. Maybe that is a lot. I will have to ask around. I am, however, so relieved to realize that I am not the only one paying it.

Interesting stuff. Food for thought, maybe matter for nightmares.

Yes, of course, it needs to be a GLOBAL event, BUT it has to start somewhere.

So why not New Hampshire.

The Governor can make it happen in New Hampshire with a simple proclamation. That will get the ball rolling. But, N.H., as with the Presidential Primaries, will always be able to boast that it was the first.

As you know, we do know the Governor. I reminded her of that.

Yes, I am very serious about this. I already have a list of folks that I am going to contact, but Governor Maggie Hassan was #1.

MAKE THE INTERNET GREEN.

Had a letter in the mail, today, offering me this 8.99c/kWh rate for the remainder of 2015.

Well, what have I got to lose. In December, when their rate goes up I will just switch back to PSNH as I did in December 2014 from ENH when their rates went up 44%.

Just wanted to share this with YOU.

Yes, the Eversore/PSNH rate, right now, is indeed 10.56c/kWh. I double checked. So the NAP rate is lower — at least till December 2015.

So think about.

I have been using Alternate Suppliers for about 4 years now. You just have to stay on top of them.

OK? I will keep you posted.

All the best.
