Sir Viv Richards, ‘The Master Blaster’ Turned 65 Today. Happy Birthday, Viv. Thanks For All The Joy.

by Anura Guruge



What a MAN!

Because of Viv, I still remember that glorious, Sun-soaked Summer of 1976.

I was at Lord’s for the 1979 World Cup and saw him bat
with Collis King.

Saw him, live, quite a bit in Somerset, Hampshire and at Lord’s.

Happy Birthday Viv.

Rejoice, Give Thanks, Sundays Became The Sundays We Love, March 7 — 1,696 Years Ago!

by Anura Guruge



He, viz. Constantine The Great, was quite the guy.

Was a pagan all of his life, only agreeing to be baptised on his deathbed when he was 65 (in 337 AD).

‘Battle of the Milvian Bridge’, where he saw THE SIGN in the sky took place in 312.

The ‘Edict of Milan‘, which made Christianity an officially recognised and tolerated religion in the Roman Empire came in 313.

This edict making Sunday, into Sunday in terms of how we know it, came 8-years later.
