Things to note:

>> Martin Luther King Jr. Day became a holiday as of 1986.

>> It was celebrated in all 50 States in 2000.

>> First Google Doodle was in 2003. It was rather PLAIN and showed NO image of THE MAN.

>> Nothing in 2004 & 2005.

>> Then yearly, for the last 11 years.

>> They called it “Dr.” Martin Luther King Day though “Dr.” was not in the official holiday title.
They finally got it right in 2014.

>> Dr. King only appeared, for the first time, in 2006. But was missing again till 2009.

>> Since 2011 his image has always been included.

Ringling Brothers/Barnum & Bailey Circus To Close Forever In May 2017, After 146 Years — A CRYING SHAME!

I like the Ringling Brothers/Barnum & Bailey Circus. We have been going to their Manchester, NH, performance, each year, without fail, for the last 7 or 8 years. Maybe more.

We were at the Sunday, May 8, 2016 performance. That could very well have been the last performance in New Hampshire.

This is a shame.

I am going to try and get in ONE LAST SHOW before they close. They are supposed to come to Manchester, April 21 to 23, 2017. We will have to go to that, IF that is still on.

I had worried for a few years that they would stop coming to Manchester because attendance was so low. Never thought it would come to this.

So now we have ‘Cirque du Soleil’ and the ‘Big Apple‘. Though we love ‘Cirque’ it is not your old-fashioned, traditional circus and the ‘Big Apple’ no longer comes to New Hampshire.

This is a SHAME.

Is It True That White Women Find Asian Men Unattractive?

The BOOK and I am envious since this is WONDERFUL publicity and will make it a bestseller.

I happened to see this story in the U.K. “Daily Mail” and it, obviously, piqued my interest.

While this has no relevance, whatsoever, to I, given my now advanced decrepitness, I kind of felt bad for my fellow Asian brethren — in case any of them were trying to score with a while female. [To also be fair, I am not sure whether this bald, fat, black guy is talking about orientals as well as those from and around the Subcontinent. No matter. We all consider ourselves Asian in some form or another.]

I am also totally UNQUALIFIED to comment on this given my extremely limited experience on this subject. But, in my case, I can fully understand and concur. So, I have to stay out of this equation.

But I do know of a few Asian men who are married to white women — of normal size, with all their teeth and not 30-years their senior. I had to say that to make sure that there was no assumption that Asian men could only persuade the really, really desperate to marry them. [And I am NOT going to even bring up Imran Khan, because he was a god!]

So, I don’t know. This could be true. I wish I could help.

I don’t watch Game Shows (and never have) so I don’t know this bald, fat, black guy — other than seeing him with another fat guy a few days ago. That being the Trump. That was what struck me. Wow. Two pudgy guys. But, of course, they are BOTH, by definition, highly attractive and obviously chick magnets. What is his name, Steve Harvey.

Well, I just wanted to ‘document’ this. I am so glad that I have no skin in this game.
