Anura Guruge suit October 2019

 


This was I just before dashing off to the wedding of my niece-in-law in Maine. Yes, that was our hotel room. What makes this selfie special for I is the suit. I haven’t been in a suit in nearly 4-years. Yes, I wore a blazer or jacket BUT not a full suit — let alone a 3-piece. For 30+ years of my life I lived in a suit at least 5-days a week — and most of them were 3-piece. Wearing a suit was the most natural thing for I. I used to own (smile) quite a few suits. During the time I lived in a suit, I would typically have between 7-10 at a time. I would never wear the same suit two-days running — and ideally not in the same week. I was always rack-size. Didn’t need bespoke suits. I could always get one from a rack — and worst case have the pant legs hemmed. Anywho … I had to buy this suit for the wedding. Got it from JC Penney. It was cheap. But it looks OK. SMILE.

Monarch Butterfly Rescue — Deanna’s New Project.

by Anura Guruge





She found it on the grass, on Sunday, at her sister’s ‘farm’ in Maine. It couldn’t fly. One of its wings looked ripped. Her sister picked it up and gave it to Deanna. It immediately made it self comfortable on her sweater. The rest is history. She decided that she is going to try and rescue it.

Her sister had hatched some butterflies over the Summer. She still had a plastic bottle all set-up for butterflies.

It was given sugar water, fruits etc. And then a flower. It seemed happy enough. We brought it home. That was 2-days ago.

It seems happy enough. It moves about and appears to be eating.

I know nothing about butterflies other than that they are pretty. I don’t even know how long they live. But, so far, so good. It is neat to have it in the kitchen.

I will try and keep you posted. I hope it hangs around for awhile.


A different one.

I CANCELLED My ‘Atlantic Broadband’ (ABB) Internet Service — Last Outage Was The Final Straw (Metrocast Customer Since 1997).

by Anura Guruge



My post from 5-days ago. I was NOT happy. I was livid. Screw them. I still have TDS.


I had been a customer for 22-years — starting in Meredith (NH) in 1997.

But, there is only so much abuse that even I am willing to tolerate.

Atlantic Broadband is NO Metrocast. Atlantic Broadband (ABB) is a garbage company.

Well, I am NOT going to lose Internet. SMILE.

For the last 4-years or so I have always had TWO (2) Internet feeds to the house: one from ABB & the other from TDS. So, yes, we have two separate Wi-Fi networks (actually 3 since one of our routers is dual-band).

For now, I, like most normal folk, will just have ONE (1) Internet service — from TDS over dedicated fiber to the wall.

And YES, I am going the Full Monty.

I am getting 1 Gigabit Internet.

As a backup we will use cellular Hotspots and I am going to get unlimited data on all our phones.

Just had it, just had it with BLOODY, scummy ABB.

Yes, TDS has outages too. But, never like bloody ABB. I know. I keep track. You can check. Use my ‘search’ feature and look for ‘outage’. SMILE.
