Happy Sinhalese “Old Year” 2020 — April 13.

Come on. It makes sense. It is the day BEFORE the ‘New Year‘. So, it is the ‘Old Year‘. Well, we can be perverse.

Yes, New Year’s EVE would make more sense.

But, unlike an ‘Eve’ this is full-day, FULL holiday.

National Holiday, April 13 & April 14. We like our holidays.

I, alas, do NOT celebrate the Sinhalese New Year — other than on the Web.

My U.S. family is totally oblivious and has NO interest in learning, let alone observing. IF I did say ‘Presents’ they may be more motivated.

It was my beloved grandmother’s birthday. So, it was always a dual celebration. She was the one that brought me up.

So, HAPPY “Old Year” 2020.

Rabid Sri Lankan Buddhists Trying Blame Coronavirus COVID-19 On The SINS Of Bullfighting!

I have been waiting for the ‘Loony Bin’ BLAME GAME to start. No, no, NOT just Trump. He can’t help it.

I had NOT seen this one coming. Sins of bullfighting?

But, it started it China and they don’t have bullfighting.

I also LOVE the whole ‘Kharmic‘ thing.

So, how does that kick in? Who administers it.

Oh, YES, the Buddhists are blaming the Muslims. Again, no Muslims (or not many) in China.

Loony Bin.

And yes, quite a few of my ‘relatives’ subscribe to such stuff. I am so lucky that I was adopted. SMILE.

Why No ‘Sign Language’ At ‘White House’ Press Briefings — Virus Or No Virus.

by Anura Guruge

Just Google: ‘why no sign language at white house




I had kind of noticed this, in passing, in the past, but it never ‘registered’ per se.

But, now with everyone doing Coronavirus COVID-19 briefings IT is so obvious … so glaring … so conspicuous.

Nothing at the White House.

Then they cut to a briefing from a State and voila (though I just learnt that NY doesn’t do it either).

Does NOT make sense.

You would think there would be a law. Maybe not.

BUt, I wanted to bring it to your attention.

YES, it is true that most modern TVs and streaming devices do support on-the-fly subtitling. But, you can’t assume that everybody has that capability or can ‘read’.

I just want CONSISTENCY.

If the States (bar NY) do it, shouldn’t the White House?

That is all. SMILE.
