Click image to access the NH State photo gallery, Wow. Just makes you realize that pictures even 20 years ago didn’t have the resolution that we are now used to.

Best Jaguar XJ8 For Sale In Craigslist New England In Mid-March 2016.

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE and goggle here. You can find it on NH Craigslist (ID=5459544867).


Nope, nope, nope. I am NOT in the market for another Jaguar (of any sort). More than happy with the two I have. But I do like, every once in awhile, to check what is available — just in case I need another one. Happened to see this.

78,000 miles. Hhhmmm. That is 10,000 more than on my 2002 XJ8. And I paid less. SMILE. But I do not have Navigation. Not for me, BUT if you are in the market for a XJ8 this might be worth looking at — for around $9,400 (not a penny more). SMILE.

Canon EOS Rebel T6 (1300D) Mildly Interesting BUT Not For Me, Thank You.

by Anura Guruge


Directly from Canon (via an e-mail).

At $549 with a 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens (which most likely will be quite SOFT) it is not a steal BUT it is not a really bad price either. Two years ago I would have considered it (given that I did buy a Canon T3i (which is now very much Devanee’s camera)).

I know one thing for sure — for sure — when it comes to my current camera preferences. I am TOTALLY sold on mirrorless. I have really gone off mirrors in camera. Do not see the need. I am now 100% mirrorless, with my Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 & LX100, and plan to stay that way.

After what I am now used to this camera, with its ONE Command Wheel and 12800 ISO, would drive me nuts. But then again I am NOT in Canon’s target market for this. But I would not now even get this for one of the kids! I would be looking at a Olympus OM-D.

Wow. Wow. Wow. This foreign pope is out-of-control! Making money of of saints is so much an integral, inviolable part of the Catholic Church, and has been for at least 1,600 years. It has been one of their BIGGEST means of raising funds.

Pope Francis. Pope Francis!

What are YOU doing to the poor Church!

One thing is for sure. I stand a better of chance of being canonized a Saint than YOU and that really is saying something.

I am in shock.

GoDaddy EMail: Thursday, March 10, 2016 — Very Slow Loading E-mails.

by Anura Guruge


So 4 days ago, on Sunday, it was down for hours. Today it is noticeably slow — when you are trying to open an e-mail, even if it is all test.

Just a heads up. Usually GoDaddy gets around to fixing whatever the problem is (though they will deny having a problem if you call them) within 12 to 24 hours.

I will keep you posted. Just grin and bear it. SMILE.
