I Canceled Sling TV/Willow As Promised — Enough With Their Duplicity & Lack Of Cricket.

by Anura Guruge



My subscription did not end till this Sunday, i.e., April 22, 2018. So there wasn’t any point cancelling it earlier.

But, as promised, I did. Had it with Sling. It is a very duplicitous outfit. All they try to do is screw you.

Hotstar” is NOT great. After the first two matches they again stopped having full-length, ball-by-ball replays. You can watch it live, but after that it is only SHORT, unsatisfying snippets.

Not sure what I am going to do come June and IPL 2018 is over.

Public Restroom Hot Air Hand Dryers Spread Bacteria!

Click to access original. Google for more.


I am a germaphobe in my own way. I am at my worst when I have to use public restrooms. That you cannot open most of them by pushing them with your elbow or foot irks me NO END. I do not want to touch any door handles.

When I go into a public restroom I do NOT want to touch ANYTHING other than what is attached to I. Simple as that.

I am very adept at using elbows and feet to turn on/off taps, activate flushes and dispense soap. Yes, of course, I like ‘non-touch’ automated taps and dispensers — especially paper towel dispensers. I will grab a paper towel and use it to touch other surfaces.

Folks ask me often why I come out of a restroom with a paper towel in my hand. It should be OBVIOUS. I do not want to touch the door.

So, this study did not surprise me much. I really hate the new fangled ‘Dyson Airblade‘ hand dryer (below) — though in general I am big fan of Dyson and have a Dyson vacuum cleaner. Not sure what they were thinking. Not sure WTF they were thinking. You can’t use those damn dryers without your skin coming to contact with some surface! Stupid. Idiotic. Plus, it feels disgustingly rude and it takes much to make me feel as such.

THE WORST, the STUPIDEST and the MOST FILTHY hand dryer of them all — and it is from Dyson! Click to ENLARGE.

YouTube Is Now Available On DISH Via An Hopper APP.

by Anura Guruge



I tried it out. It is there. You have to go into the DISH ‘Hopper’ Menu. They have a special, new entry, with the ‘YouTube‘ icon for the APP. Works. Works well. Good quality.

Just like the ‘YouTube’ APP on Roku. You can even sign into it with your normal account.

We had access to YouTube before via Roku. This is another option, and will save us having to switch from DISH to Roku.

Just to let you know.

For Barbara Bush — Giant American Flag At Chichester, N.H., “Camping World”, At Half Mast.

Click to ENLARGE.


It is one of the largest flags around here, and one the largest I have seen.

It towers over the “Camping World” RV sales lot, in Chichester, New Hampshire — just outside of our capital, Concord. It is quite the sight to see at anytime. Today, to see it at half mast was sobering. It definitely gets your attention. Its size has caused controversy.

It is at half mast for Barbara Bush — as it should be. She was quite the lady. She will be missed.

Taking Selfies My Way — Part XXVI, ‘Cinemagic’ & ‘Portsmouth Brewery’, NH — Easter, 2018.

No post-processing whatsoever!




Took these 18-days ago, but was too busy to get around to posting them. But, I did not want to lose them or spoil our ‘taking selfies my way’ saga.

Those of you familiar with my ‘taking selfies my way’ know that I cannot resist the large mirrors at the ‘Cinemagic’, Portsmouth, NH. This is the third set of selfies from there this month — the last on February 14 when we went to see ‘Paddington 2‘. This time it was to see ‘Sherlock Gnomes‘.

Then for dinner at the “Portsmouth Brewery“. Their men’s restroom is tastefully done up in burnished brass to look like the inside of a brewing vat. Neato. Had to take a picture.

Second time taking selfies with the Google Pixel 2 phone I got for Christmas 2017.
