Given that it was Ann Summers that came up with the notion of a ‘National Orgasm Day‘ back in 2001, those of us who know the legacy invariably turn to them around this time of the year to see what they have in mind to commemorate the day in style. This year it is this new collection of magnetized, powered sex toys. The video, reminiscent of ‘beautiful agony’ was cute and as ever masterful. So don’t dilly dally, it is going to be upon you in 11-days.

I always think that my ‘Orgasms: 101 Facts & Trivia‘ is a great way to celebrate this important worldwide holyday.

The First Ever Atomic Bomb Was Exploded This Day, July 16, 72-Years Ago — In 1945.

The code name ‘Trinity’ seems ironic, though it is more than likely than Oppenheimer & co. did feel to an extent that they were playing God — given the nature of what they were working.

The Gadget‘, the bomb tested on July 16, 1945, was plutonium-based. It was the prototype of the ‘Fat Man‘ bomb detonated over Nagasaki, 24-days later. That was the 2nd nuclear bomb. The first, of course, was over Hiroshima, 3-days prior to Nagasaki. That was an uranium-based bomb. So Hiroshima took place exactly 3-weeks from this day 72-years ago.

The First Tweet Was Sent On Twitter, This Day, July 15, 11-Years Ago — In 2006.

by Anura Guruge



Twitter was founded on March 21, 2006.

But it was not available as a service until July 15 of that year. So, folks within Twitter did send out Tweets as of March 21 BUT the service only went live for us, the public, 11 year ago, today.

He is not in my pantheon of favorite painters BUT I do respect and admire his work — as one must. He sure had talent and knew how to use it. 411 years ago. Wow. That is a long time and makes you think. So much water has flowed under the many bridges in Amsterdam.

‘Live Aid’ THE Concert Took Place This Day 32-Years Ago — Have YOU Seen “When Harvey Met Bob”?

by Anura Guruge


“When Harvey Met Bob”

2010 movie about how Bob Geldof made “Live Aid” a reality.

Absolutely brilliant movie and you will see Bob Geldof is a whole different light.

MUST WATCH movie. IF you have never seen it, find it … and watch it. You will THANK me (but that is OK).

I saw it, serendipitously, a few years ago and loved it. Prior to that never been a huge fan of Bob’s though we were London contemporaries though I am not aware of ever bumping into him.


“When Harvey Met Bob” trailer on YouTube.

And yes, there is the “Live Aid” movie which is just the concert.

You can see the whole concert on YouTube. There are also DVDs.

Joaquín Navarro-Valls, Pope John Paul II’s Exemplary Spokesman Died July 5, 2017 — Aged 80.

by Anura Guruge



From my “The Next Pope 2011“.

Click to ENLARGE and read here. Shows the pivotal role he played during the 2005 sede vacante following the death of Pope John Paul II.

From “Rome Reports”. Click to access the original.


He was, indubitably, quite the person — a physician, academic, journalist and an inspired diplomat.

He was outstanding as John Paul II’s spokesman and did a masterly job handling the pope’s last days, funeral and sede vacante.

His brilliance made highlighted the bumblings of his successor, Federico Lombardi — it was like Obama being succeeded by Donald!

I, as you can see from what I wrote in my “The Next Pope 2011” a great fan of Dr. Navarro-Valls.
