Jaguar power.

British pride.

Feels so good.

No namby-pamby, ‘we-have-to-lie‘ German technology here. This thing is not diesel powered.

ENJOY. Smile. Made my day.

A day in which I did something I very rarely do. I washed a car by hand.
It was, of course, a Jaguar.

As each days goes by I am getting increasingly angry at Sony — and remember I am a Sony shareholder.

It is NOT right that a modern, brand-new, $1,500 camera should JUST LOSE 989 images. That is diabolical. That Sony Support doesn’t even care is kind of galling BUT I had already read, before I bought the Sony SLT A77 II, that Sony, in reality, offered no post-sales support. But, luckily, Cameta Camera, has been outstanding! They are taking back the entire Sony a77 II kit and giving me a full refund — though I have to pay to ship part of the kit back. But that is OK.

I was THINKING of getting another Sony — possibly the Sony RX10 II, though I really didn’t want to go back to a sub-APSC sensor. Well, I found that the RX10 II was NOT worth the money! I will do a post on that. I am going to get a Panasonic! It is a compromise, but a good one. I will tell you more about that soon. SMILE.

I had no idea as to his religion. Just assumed, given that he was from Vermont, that he was Christian.

I LIKE BERNIE. Have done for years. I would like to see him as President. I think he will make a damn good President. Better than Obama. (Did I just say that? Moi, who campaigned so ardently, in 2008 and 2012, for Obama.)

I am shocked that I, an avowed political junkie, did not know this. Was having dinner with a bunch of non-Christians last night, some from Israel, when this came up. I thought they were pulling my leg.

Do YOU think Donald knows this?

I am not sure whether the U.S. will go for a non-Christian in 2016 AFTER their bold experiment with Obama. But, I could be wrong. I hope I am wrong.

It is just that I was taken back.

This from ABC news. But Google for other images of Mass in Philadelphia and notice how white the congregation is.

That not too many U.S. Catholics are black is something I have known for a long time.

Nonetheless, it was quite striking to watch TV coverage of Pope Francis’ Mass in Philadelphia today and see the sea of white faces — especially since I, like so many, know that Philadelphia has quite a few blacks. I just looked it up. Whites, at 42%, are a minority! 43% of the population is Black or African American. Well that certainly was not the case at this Mass — or for that matter what will be the case on Sunday’s Mass.

Only 3% of U.S. Catholic’s are black.

I got an e-mail about this from Sri Lanka this morning. Pretty amazing. I had not seen it, in the U.S., myself, though a quick Google shows that he, deservedly, got a ton of publicity.

I was curious as to what the device looked like. Well … I looked …
I can’t say I understand head-or-tail of it.
The blood tests I have done seems much simpler.

Clever kids like this delight me and make me feel even more humble and aware as to how little, if any, I achieved in life. Last night we had a 17-year old boy from Israel for dinner. He is another prodigy from my good mate Itzik Nosatzki, the founder of Interspace.net Web hosting in Israel. Itzik, quite proudly, as he should be, was telling us, over dinner, that the son, at 16, had designed a fail-safe power supply for a satellite that is actually in space right now! The first satellite designed by school children — anywhere in the world. AMAZING. And they are not duking it out about Common Core.
