The title is self-explanatory. Next papal election. I didn’t call it ‘Conclave‘ since this is aimed at an audience that might NOT equate a papal election with a conclave! This is a book aimed at a different audience to my other pope books. This one is for the ‘beginner’. So, in this book I take pains to explain stuff I don’t in my other books. I also set out to be minimalistic. I called it “Goldilocks“. I really tried to keep the volume of content just right. Not too much; not too little.

Well, I have tried to give you a few images.

These days I make sure my eBooks are available across APPLE, Amazon, Android etc. I gave up trying to convince folks that Amazon Kindle eBook can be read on Apple. SMILE.

I was going to call this book: “Be A Bar Stool Expert on How Popes are Elected“. Well, you can catch the drift.

For those that want chapter & verse, I did publish this 518-page book earlier this year.

‘Cape Elizabeth’, Maine (By Portland) — V. Scenic, Rural, Historic & Lighthouse-Rich.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.

This is ‘Cape Elizabeth’, Maine. Of course, from ‘Google Maps’.


For perspective. Not hard to find. Right next-door to Portland.

Not, of course, as scenic as ‘Acadia‘ — but not too many places are. But, this area is NOT bad. Has the advantage that it is 3- to 4-hours CLOSER than Acadia. I discovered it for the first time two weeks ago. I was very impressed. Didn’t have much time to explore because we had started in York. So, I am going back to spend more time. I am sure I will find interesting places & things to do. That is I.

One thing I did notice. Never seen as many BIKES — as in push bikes — in one place. So, at least, cyclists share my appreciation.

P.S., Easy enough to get to. Just start off on famous ‘Route 1’.

Why?

Because, she is so qualified, so strong & ABOVE ALL has zero baggage.

Lets see Trump trying to BULLY her. Ha. Ha. Ha.

She will put Trump in his place.

She is GOOD. I have no issue or quarrel that she is part Tamil. I have Tamil friends.

She is GOOD. She is impressive. I am so GLAD.

Thanks Joe. You are a PAL. SMILE.

Selfies My Way — The ‘COVID-19’ Disheveled Look, August 9, 2020.

Yes, you are free to steal these pictures.


Last night. Just around midnight BEFORE I shaved! Yes, I now shave, every other day — at night, before going to bed!

Yes, I am strange. But, we all knew that. I am having new issues shaving. I think skin is getting more sensitive as I age.

COVID-19, of course, quite literally has provided COVER. SMILE. The face masks. People can’t see. SMILE. But, I do shave. Honest.

Well, I have looked worse. Much worse. SMILE.

“Radioactive” (2019) ‘Marie Curie’ Movie On Amazon Prime — Good, Quite Good BUT Not That Radiant.

by Anura Guruge



Click image to access IMDb.com listing.


YouTube trailer


I hadn’t fully realized it, but one way or another I appear to have a fairly decent idea about Marie Curie’s life. That meant that I was familiar with about 50% of what was in this movie. That was the ONLY reason that it did NOT enthrall me more. I just knew the story.

BUT, if you are not familiar with her marvelous story you will enjoy it MUCH MORE.

Well made. They even include little snippets to educate you on the deep science. That was cute.

They also include clips of nuclear events that happened well after her death — including the ‘Chernobyl‘ accident from 1989. One of the clips included a 1961 US nuclear test blast in Nevada. I guess I had forgotten about that. I was 8 & living in Ceylon.

But, GOOD movie. Definitely worth watching. I enjoyed it. So, I do recommend it. Enjoy. SMILE.

Quite the lady in so many different respects. SMILE.

Someone Despaired Of This Book. They Threw It Out Of ‘A Car’ Window On To The Road.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


I found it during my walk. Yes, of course, I picked it up & had a look. It was heavily highlighted (in yellow) & was full of inane annotations. Not sure who threw it out & their connection to the person who annotated the book. Either way someone was not amused. I was. Cracked me up. Yes, a rather stupid book. I do NOT like to see books tossed out, but I can see how someone would despair of this book. SMILE.
