Elizabeth Warren Is A Proven Liar, Joe Biden Not As Much. We Got To Cut The Ol’ Codger Some Slack.

I like Joe Biden. Period. I think that he is an honorable man.

I really don’t think he would lie about this. He is NOT Trump.

Plus, how come we are using this against poor ol’ Joe, when it was OK for Trump.

NO, I am not condoning such behavior. Just saying that we have to be fair to all.

What about having this THOROUGHLY investigated. You can’t have Poor Joe’s career ruined by unverified claims. That is my only point.

Bloody Warren should keep her mouth shut. She is so worried that Biden will make her so irrelevant. She is a LIAR. Please, stop telling me what you believe. I believe you lie.

I don’t believe Joe lies. Joe is a good man. He has a good wife. I have met her. I put my arm around her. So, am I also a creep now. I don’t think she objected. I could be wrong.

HUGE victory for THE EARTH.

Brilliant piece of work by the ‘young’ judge. I don’t think anybody will be able to find fault with her interpretation. That none of Trump’s people realized that they couldn’t do what they hoped to do is beyond the pale. This is sheer incompetence. I haven’t heard Trump railing against this — as yet. I guess he realizes that he has been taken to the woodshed and whipped.

Rejoice. We need these small victories.

I Sold My Full-Frame Sony a7 II (Body Only) On eBay, Today, In 90-Minutes, For $650 + Shipping.

I finally did IT. Wow.

I have been saying I am going to sell this, my last remaining Sony, since at least last October. I had said I would sell it when I had taken 20,000 pictures with it. Well, I sailed past that landmark in June 2018.

I had taken 30,455 pictures with it.

This was the last picture I took with it — on March 3, 2019, in Wellfleet on the Cape. I haven’t used it since given that I have been on crutches.


I had it for 1 year, 10 months and 3 weeks; i.e., 690-days. I took 30,455 pictures with it during that time. That comes to 44 pictures a day — though I didn’t use it every day. So, I can never be accused of not using it. As I have articulated before I am fed up with the limitations and costs of Sony full-frame lenses. Hence, my parting of ways with Sony.

I still have one last Sony lens for sale — on eBay. I hope it sells.

I do NOT plan to get another camera for at least 3-weeks. No point getting a Full-Frame while I am on crutches. Not practical to hold one and i don’t want to drop it.

Right now it still looks like the recently available Canon EOS RP Mirrorless Full-Frame. But, that could always change,

National Remembrance Service For Christchurch [NZ] Mosque Massacre Victims — Very Dignified, Quite Stirring.

All YouTube videos.

Another impressive, touching & humbling show by New Zealand. Kudos. Bravo. You have shown the world how it can be a better place.

Though I have no connections whatsoever with New Zealand, other than being a fellow (and very PROUD) British Commonwealth Citizen, I am so awe of New Zealand and their young PM Jacinda Ardern. I hope she gets the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize.

Shame the massacre happened. It should not have. But, some good as come out of it, though that is little consolation to those that lost family, friends and neighbors.

That Jeff Bezos Is Relying On Psychics To Tell Him Of The Future, Does NOT Bode Well For Amazon’s Future.

This is getting worrying. Jeff Bezos, the once MIGHTY VISIONARY now paying psychics!

This whole affair thing and the Dick Pictures had me concerned. Now I am real worried.

I have fairly decent financial stake in Amazon. Jeff Bezos has done me proud. But, I don’t want him blowing my gains.

He has to know better than to be consulting psychics.

This is not good. I assume that the Amazon Board and other executives are beginning to feel on edge.

Has all the pressure over the last 30-years been too much? Finally catching up on Jeff.

Well, at least I warned you.

Taking Selfies My Way — Day #23 Post-Knee Surgery — March 30, 2019.

by Anura Guruge


Click picture to ENLARGE.



I actually took these pictures to show-off the close and comfortable shave I managed to get with the new Gillette SkinGuard razor. Then, I realized that these were also ‘selfies my way‘.

So, here is what is kooky. This is the mirror in MY bathroom. I have never taken a ‘selfies my way‘ using that mirror — and it is the mirror I spend most time in front of! That is typical I. Well, now I have rectified it.

Yes, I am topless. Bottomless too. I am not exactly shy.

Well 3-weeks post surgery and I am still around. Sorry.

‘Fitbit Inspire HR’ vs ‘Garmin Vivosport’ Step Count. Prepare To Be Amazed.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.

Spot the difference.

Worn all day, side-by-side. 24-hours. Midnight Friday to Midnight Saturday.


She started wearing them, together, on Thursday,
so we can get a 24-hour reading on Friday.


I have tested it against other watches too.


You can draw your own conclusions. I had a hunch. I needed proof. I started logging steps on an Excel spreadsheet. But, right now, 3-weeks after major knee surgery, I am on crutches. Step counts don’t work too good with crutches.

My wife wears a Garmin Vivosport. So, I convinced her to help me test. She started wearing the Inspire HR on Thursday so that we could get a full day count on Friday. Well, you see the numbers. You make up your own mind.

Both bands needed charging. So, we are not going to test them today, i.e., Saturday. We will try again tomorrow.

My wife was speechless. She has heard me ranting and raving about fake steps. She just thought that it was just I … Now, she saw proof and was AMAZED.

Shaving has been the absolute bane of my adult life. I suffer so when I shave. It is torture. I dread it.

Over the decades I have gone to extreme lengths to make it bearable. Cost never a consideration. I have tried them all: razors, blades, electric. And I have suffered mightily.

In December 2018 I bought one of these because it was supposed to be gentle on sensitive skin. To be fair, it was better than MOST. But, after just 4-months I could tell the blades were getting dull! That is the bloody irony. The skin on my face is ultra sensitive and soft. Much softer than that of a baby’s bottom and as a father of 4 who changed MORE diapers than any, I would know. Part of it is that I do pamper my face and have done since I was a teenager. I put more oil and cream on my face than any female! The rest of the skin on my body, especially on the palms of my hands, makes rhinoceros hide feel soft. And then there is my stubble. Like metal shards! Hence why the blades of electric shavers have little chance — and life.

The Gillette SkinGuard commercials on TV spoke to I. They described my exact dilema.

This was I. I had to try it. I owed to myself.

Last Thursday, while at Walmart I got one and now realize that bloody Walmart overcharged me. C’est la vie.

This morning I tried it with much trepidation. I wasn’t going to take any chances. I used both ‘Shave Secret’ and ‘Cremo Shaving Cream’ as a base.

Then I shaved. Hallelujah. It was good. I am sold.

Wow. I hope this solves my shaving woes. I sure hope so.

Thank YOU, Gillette. I will never bad-mouth you again (I hope).
