Doesn’t Facebook Have Any Guidelines Or Censorship For Profile Picture Images.

As befits someone who has written a book about ‘Orgams‘ and is happy to cover anything to do with ‘toplessness‘, I am not a prude. Never have been, never will be.

I don’t know this person. He has started appearing on my ‘People You Know‘ of late. I wanted to do this post before deleting him from that list.

His banner image is even more graphic.

I am just surprised that Facebook permits this. Yes, I have heard that there is a way to report ‘abuse’ BUT I have no clue as to how you do that. And I can’t be bothered. He will be gone by tonight.

I had a Ford Cortina, as a company car, for awhile, when I worked for ITT. I might have had a Granada too, as a company car, but I can’t be 100% sure.

As far as I know that is the only Ford car I have ‘owned’. I don’t think I have anything against Ford. I would drive a Mustang.

The early milestones of the ‘manned’ space race. Click to ENLARGE.


I was 9-years old at the time and totally captivated and fascinated by space and the space race. Those were exciting days to be a kid. I followed all the news. We didn’t have TV in Ceylon at the time so it was all through newspaper, radio and Pathe News.

I remember learning about Valentina Tereshkova flight. Wow. A woman in space. It was pretty exciting. I also remember reading that she suffered mental illness as a result of this flight! That proved to be false. But, an indication as to how some people wanted to mar her achievement.

Unlike Yuri Gagarin who I was lucky enough to meet, Valentina Tereshkova is still alive today — 80-years old.

Valentina Tereshkova one of the eight distinguished Olympic flag bearers at the Sochi Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony in 2014.

IBM, As Computing-Tabulating-Recording Company, Came To Be This Day, 106-Years Ago!

CTR and hence IBM, contrary to what most think, were NOT founded by Thomas J. Watson Sr. Watson was still at NCR in 1911 when CTR was formed. He didn’t join CTR till 1914.


My 3 IBM book.
The ‘SNA’ book, published in 1984, defined my life for the next 25 years.


I started my career with IBM, on Monday, August 26, 1974, at their Research Laboratory in Hursley, England. It was my very first job of any kind. Monday, August 26, 1974 happened to the August Bank Holiday Monday that year. I had sent in my acceptance paperwork for IBM, with my preferred start date, from Bangkok, Thailand — that being where my adoptive parents were living at the time. I had not realized that it was a holiday. IBM had no problem with it and accepted it as my start day, BUT told me not to report for work until the next day, the Tuesday. So, I started my working life getting paid for a day I did NOT work! That is my life.

Since that day, August 27, 1974, IBM was my life, 24×7, for the next 35 years!

I made my living by being an IBM expert. It wasn’t a bad way to make a fairly reasonable living. I have no regrets. I loved everything to do with IBM technology, especially the mainframes. So this is an important day.
