Boeing CEO, Dennis Muilenburg’s Shameless, Disingenuous, Publicity-Stunt 737 MAX Test Flight.

Dennis Muilenburg, Boeing’s shameless, disingenuous CEO really must think we, the public, are super gullible and stupid.

Wow, he goes on a Boeing 737 MAX MCAS anti-stall software test flight and he wants us to think that this proves that the software is fixed and the plane is now safe.

A publicity stunt worthy of Donald Trump.

This was probably the safest flight ever of a Boeing plane.

Most experienced, best trained flight crew who must have spent hours, beforehand, going through all contingencies. Plus, they probably had multiple senior pilots all ready to back each other up. And I am sure they even had overrides that could be activated from the ground.

Dennis Muilenburg took ZERO risk. He was as safe as houses. What a con artist.

Yes, Boeing’s name has being besmirched by this whole sorry Boeing 737 Max saga. But, Dennis Muilenburg, added to it. I am sure he will have to resign over this at some point. That is my only consolation.

Taking Selfies My Way — Exactly 4-Weeks Post-Knee Surgery — April 4, 2019.

by Anura Guruge


Click picture to ENLARGE.



Still on crutches and a full, locked leg brace — but still insisting on hobbling about. Both legs are atrophying in front of my eyes. But, no pain. Of that, I am glad. I was dreading having to live with pain.

As far as I know, I have to be on crutches for 2 more weeks. If they try to force me to use them any longer we are going to have an issue. I am resigned that I will have to wear a knee brace for the rest of my life. I probably will need to wear two — one on top of the other.

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

Here is I, waving to YOU with one of my crutches.

As I have often stated, I read the U.K. “Daily Mail”, my trusted source of news, online, multiple times a day and have done for ages — having been a ‘Daily Mail‘ subscriber when I lived in the U.K.

When I saw this I knew that YOU would expect me to share it with you. DONE.

I am fairly certain that we are unlikely to see this bikini around Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire. However, IF I am wrong, I would not mind a jot. I will just be happy for.

Just so I could be proved wrong, I am thinking about ordering one for myself and wearing it when I go to the beach. I think I will look OK. The only problem. From what I can see they don’t seem to make it in MY SIZE! They all seem too BIG to fit I. Dilemma. Maybe I could get somebody to alter the small size to fit I.

Lake Winnipesaukee [NH] Ice-Out: Earliest Occurrences.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE and study. Note, 2012 was a LEAP YEAR and I take that into account.

2012 was a LEAP YEAR and I take that into account.
I count days from January 1, taking into account leap years.
So, March 24 in a non-leap year is the SAME as March 23 in a Leap Year.



So, of course, we have had ice-outs by now; viz. April 5.

And we don’t have to go to far. Just in the last 9-years, with 2016 THE RECORD since the 1887 — the first year for which we have reliable data.

I was in Wolfeboro two-days ago. The ice was very white and looked pretty solid.

Yesterday, the ice on The Broads looked black. That means it would typically break-up within 48-hours. I have seen it happen — ONCE. Magical. One second we have ice, the next it is ALL gone as far as the eye can see. This was in 1999 or 2000 when I was living waterfront in Gilford.

Mid-April might be good for this year too.

25th Annual JTG Music Memorial Extravaganza, Giuseppe’s, Meredith, Sunday, May 5, 2019 — Program/Schedule.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


Initial heads-up. As with last year 2019 JTG will be in May rather than in April, Sunday, May 5, 2019 to be precise.

As always this should be a blast, and I should know. I have been to at least 22 of the 25 JTGs over the years.

I will keep you posted. Stay tuned.
