So we have been deprived of “Baking Shows“.
We did watch the “The Great American Bake Show” season 1 (2015) & season 2 (2016). I already have the DVR programmed to record season 3.
Just wanted to give YOU a heads up and make sure that you do not miss it.

Then again this weekend. NADA.
So, I went and looked at PBS.org.
They have BOTH ended. Unexpectedly, I would say — especially for “The Collection“.
I hope PBS is not playing ‘games’ because of their budget cuts.

AFTER — Dick Bird’s Photoshop magic.
The ORIGINAL Image.
Dick kindly also provided this explanation:
“Look closely and you will see I removed the car, the sign in the middle of the road, and the electric wires going across the street. I wanted a desolation, unspoiled look to the picture. Notice I actually lit the windows of the store that was behind the car. The sky was slightly darkened and made more ‘ominous’ looking.”
Pretty amazing … right?

I first saw this whole sorry incident in the 2nd day Highlights on Willow.
I was incredulous!
I then went and watched the ball-by-ball video to get the whole picture.
It came across as GAMESMANSHIP! It was embarrassing. Sri Lanka continues to further its reputation as unsporting cricketers. That is shame.
Yes, they are being totally outclassed by India and it must be hard to be in the field getting pounded by the Indians — especially Koli.
But the mask thing just made them look petty and pathetic. It really came across that they were, quite rightly, too ashamed to show their faces.
It upset me. I hate to see the spirit of cricket being besmirched.
There should be further action. The whole team should be FINED.
Other teams should REFUSE to play Sri Lanka. Boycott them until they learn some manners.
