Stabbing Of Babies At A Chinese Daycare In Queens, New York — So Many Questions?

by Anura Guruge

Google for MORE.


When I got around to reading this, I was mortified.

In THIS country? In New York.

So many questions, so many contradictions.

  • 24-hour, non-stop ‘Daycare’? How is that permissible. Guess, it was not licensed … Wow.
     …..
  • Babies as young as 3-days! That is criminal. In this country?
    …..
  • Now they are saying ‘Birth Tourism‘ — Chinese mothers giving birth in the USA to get their kids U.S. Citizenship. Understand that. Other countries, most notably women from Israel, do that. But, why would these kids require ‘daycare’ and do so when they are so young. Where are the mothers. Out sightseeing? Out partying?
    ,,,,
  • I initially thought that the mothers, due to poverty, had to go back to work — so soon after giving birth. That might not be the case.
    ….

All of this has me confounded and very sad. In the U.S.A.

And in the same City, viz., New York, the Catholic Church can just come up with $27.5 Million to settle their sex crimes!

There is no justice in this world!

“America’s Got Talent” (AGT) 2018 Finalist, ‘Michael Ketterer’, Saint To Sinner In 48-hours?

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. This from ‘People’. TMZ broke the story. Just Google ‘Michael Ketterer’ for more.


I could NOT believe my eyes when I saw this on Google News a few minutes ago.

Whoa. WHoa. WHOa. WHOA!

This guy portrayed himself as the Saint’s Saint.


He had Simon Cowell in tears.

And now this?

Please, don’t tell me it was the stress and pressure of the AGT Final.

He claimed that he had been through so much that that should have been but mere bagatelle.

Can he go back to being a pediatric nurse? I hope not.

Can he adopt anymore children? I hope not.

This is serious.

Full confession on my part. Those who know me know that I am a cynic’s cynic. A professional skeptic.

While his story impressed me, there was an element that it was ‘too GOOD to be true’. Somethings that did not gel. His tattoos and piercings were incongruous with the story he told. If he devoted all of his life to all of these kids he was raising he would not be spending money on tattoos and piercings. Think about it.

So, was it drugs? Was it alcohol?

He was Simon Cowell’s Golden Buzzer. Simon ol’ fruit. Over to YOU.

To My Delight I Got My 1st UK Pension Payment — Unexpectedly.

I had opted for payment every 13-weeks. So, I was NOT expecting any payments till December 2018.

Then I got a brown envelope from the UK in the mail Thursday. I knew at once that it was about my pension.

Wow. They had made a preliminary payment, kind of to check the bank transfer, for just 9-days.

I checked my bank. Wow. It was there. Though it was for but 9 days, it made me smile. I could just about even by a Nikon 50mm Prime Lens with that. That is better than a kick in the teeth.

I have nothing but awe, respect and loyalty to my British Government. They have always done RIGHT by me and what more can you ask for.

Rule Britannia.

So, So Happy That Boston Magician ‘Shin Lim’ Won “America’s Got Talent” (AGT) 2018.

by Anura Guruge


AGT 2018 Performance at the Final
(this week).


Encore Performance at the ‘Results’ show
(on Wednesday of this week).


Click to access his magical Website.


Click to ENLARGE and read. Yes, he is, of course, on Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shin_Lim


We have been hooked on him since the very first time we saw him on AGT a few months ago.

We have been rooting for him ever since.

One of the AGT judges, maybe Simon Cowell, said that he could end up alongside Houdini. And that is definitely possible.

I think he will, in a few years, he considered the GREATEST MAGICIAN of all times!

We so wanted him to win, but knew that a magician had never won AGT. Plus, he faced some stiff competition.

So, we were so, so happy that he won.

Can be no doubt or debate that he was a worthy winner. He is something else.

I will go to Las Vegas to see him. No question about that.

If you haven’t seen him, PLEASE, PLEASE watch on YouTube. This is MAGIC. He is MAGIC.

‘FedEx’ ‘Tortoise & The Hare’ TV Commercial — You HAVE To Listen To The Song. Mesmerizing.

by Anura Guruge



YouTube below.



I typically do my utmost to ignore TV ads. I either skip over them, change channels or read something until they are over.

This morning, as is my daily wont, I was drinking my first cup of coffee, lying in bed, with the TV onto MSNBC/CNN and reading news on my 10″ ASUS pad at the same.

THEN I heard this song. It sends tingles through me. I was like “what the heck was that?

It was familiar and alien at the same time. I rewound the DVR to watch what it was.

It was a FedEx ad. Hhhmmm.

The song was not familiar but the immaculate guitar work and singing were mesmerizing. I listened to it a few times. Brilliant.

Really liked it.

Google to find out who the artist was. I failed! I thought it might be the British Johnny Flynn who did the soundtrack for the ‘The Detectorists‘. There are similarities in the guitar picking. I checked. I don’t think it is him.

I e-mailed the Ad company. They have not responded. So, IF you know who it is, PLEASE let me know.

In the meantime LISTEN to the song. You will THANK ME.



The Jack Williams theory.
