Of course “Google” owns the Trademark, Copyright and whatever for everything and anything to do with Google. Just wanted to make sure that nobody got confused that maybe I owned “Google”. Alas I don’t even own Google stock — my loss.

P.S., In case you are still confused Google did NOT create this rather poor, and kind of unimaginative Google Doodle. That was my pitiful attempt to try and create a Google Doodle.

Least I can do. Want to make sure that folks around the world celebrate this holy day the way it is meant to be commemorated.

Get into the swing of things on Friday, July 31, 2015, “National Orgasm Day“, around the World, by getting a FREE download of the “Orgasms: 101 Facts & Trivia” eBook — for 24 hours.

It is a shame that it goes uncelebrated by so many. So this year we will come up with ways so that as many folks can savor and enjoy a memorable “National Orgasm Day“. Just reading about orgasmic scenes in movies, good and bad, just doesn’t cut it.

I will remind you as we get closer. 3 weeks to go. Can you bear the suspenders?


I Can’t Afford A New (Or Even Nearly New) Jaguar — So I Bought Shares In Tata Motors.

Indian Tata Motors have owned the Jaguar Land Rover brand since 2008.

So, given that I can’t afford a new Jaguar I decided that I would do the next best thing — buy a few shares in Tata Motors, the 17th largest ‘car’ company in the world with revenues of US $42 billion.

Having spent a lot of time in India I am no stranger to Tata. Plus the name, an offshoot from a former acronym, is one very familiar to Sinhalese, like I, from Sri Lanka. ‘Tata’, or ‘Tatta’, means father — not that dissimilar to the yiddish word.

So this is the same logic I used with Sony. I can’t afford the Sony A7 RII or the Sony RX10 II (which I really would like to own) — so I bought a few SNE shares, i.e., Sony stock in the U.S.

TTM is the U.S. ‘version’ (i.e., ADS — American Depository Stock) of the Tata shares. It, at around $30 – $32, is not that expensive — say to Apple, Amazon or NetFlix. It has taken a hit of late but that is true of most stock.

So, I now have some affinity with Jaguar — shareholder PLUS two old Jags.

That Jaguar brand is owned by an Indian company only bothers me some. India to me is still the British Raj. The largest country in our glorious British Commonwealth. So there is still British in it. It isn’t like if it was owned by a Chinese, Korean, Japanese or Kraut company. So I am OK with the Indian ownership SINCE the Jaguar Land Rover COMPANY is still in Britian.
