The New “Mooyah” In Rochester, NH, For A Double Burger For Lunch.

Mooyah” Burgers ¤ Fries ¤ Shakes opened at the Rochester, New HampshireMarket Basket‘/’Petco‘ shopping area — right next to ‘110 Grill‘ — quite recently.

Since I am partial to burgers, sans the bun, I was eager to try it out.

Got the chance on Tuesday when we went to ‘Market Basket‘. I walked across around 2pm.

Pretty fancy. Wasn’t crowded. LOT of staff — all exceptionally cheerful & friendly.

A tad pricey. More diner-like pricing rather than Wendy’s or Burger King. But, you can make your own burger. I liked that.

It was good. I didn’t have any fries or a shake. NO HOT DOGS.

Gather it is a chain/franchise from Texas.

It is NOT Shake Shack.

I might go again. Might not. Not sure. They didn’t totally ‘wow’ me over, but I am willing to give them a few tries. Must take Teischan. That would be the acid test; whether she gives the burgers a thumbs up. She is a burger connoisseur.

I am a great fan of the ‘Doppler Effect‘ and as such was very happy to see this Google Doodle.

I did not realize that Doppler was that ‘old’ nor that he was Austrian. I would have had him 50-years younger and had thought he was German — but given that we are talking about 1803 that was ‘close’. {Smile}

This Doodle is only being shown in Austria. So, enjoy it here.

Discover Card’s FREE ‘Credit Report Activity’ Monitoring Seems To Work.

I like my Discover Credit Card.

I have had it since 1991, i.e., I have been a member for 27-years. During that time I do not think I have ever had a problem with them.

Something about them. They just, always, seem different — but, in a GOOD WAY without fail. They just seem so eager and happy to please.

Recently, following the criminal Equifax debacle they sent me an e-mail offering FREE social security number monitoring on credit reporting services. If they saw my ‘social’ appearing on credit report they will let me know — for free. I signed up and it was easy enough.

Today, for the first time, I got this e-mail.

I checked it. It was bona fide. An new account I had opened. So, it works. I am happy.

Spanish Seville’s Official 2017 Christmas Poster Shows Archangel Gabriel In A Whole Different Light.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE and MARVEL!


I read and saw this in today’s
U.K. “Daily Mail
which I read a few times a day!



It is a poster to put up around the City that says “Christmas Saville 2017” (in Spanish).

Interesting imagery and on top of it, the most masculine Gabriel I have ever seen.

What were they thinking? Maybe they were indeed trying to tell us something.

Enjoy.

Pope Francis In Myanmar Comes Across As A Partisan, Gutless Wimp!

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. From the “Washington Post” coverage.

The KEY passage from the speech above. He even skirts mentioning RELIGION. How poor.


There are times to be diplomatic and then there are times when one has to stand up against egregious crimes against humanity. In that Pope Francis failed miserably and demonstrated why he will always be an ineffective, pedestrian pope — and never reach the GREATNESS shown by the likes of John XXIII, Pius X, John Paul II or even Benedict XV (15, not 16).

The pope has — and had — absolutely nothing to lose. He only answers to God, and one hopes God would not have minded him talking out against genocide — BUT then again you would think God should be able to do something about it directly. C’est la vie.

Less than 1% of Myanmar’s population, if that, is Catholic — though they have a newly minted cardinal and about 22 bishops.

The pope could have been more forceful and emphatic. What they are doing to the Rohingya is dead wrong. The pope lost some of his credibility and moral authority by delivering this flaccid speech — and he didn’t have much of either to begin with.

Ahh! To have again have a good pope. Maybe the next one after this rather pale imitation of a pope.

2018’s Featured U.K. Nude Charity Calendar Is The ‘Hitchin Rugby Club Ladies’.

Quite a few, very well produced, U.K. nude charity calendars for 2018 — male, female and combined. I will try and share a few more with you.

For my catholic tastes this, the ‘Hitchin Rugby Club Ladies’ calendar, was the most appealing — partly because I am rather partial to rugby. Not a coincidence that in 2015 I also picked another rugby team — the Oxford University Women’s. But, in addition, some great pictures of these rugby playing ladies from Hitchin, and WOW — these ladies are toned.

I am not getting any calendars this year — after doing so for the last few years. The novelty has kind of gone, I think. However, I still like to check what is out there.
