This is a worthwhile, fun & rewarding experience. We took part in the May 2018 ‘Spring Clean Up Day‘ and it was a blast. Since all three of us did the full 4-hour shift we got six free tickets which we have yet to use.

Being around the spectacular Castle is always fun and the staff is ultra nice. In May we also got a very nice, free lunch. Hope the weather is good in November.

You should sign up. You will enjoy it. It is good to support the Castle.

Teischan’s Latest Artwork — I Offered To Buy It For …

by Anura Guruge

She has been working on this for the last few days. She uses a ‘modern’ protractor to draw the circles. All the rest is freehand and her own design. She has been working on this for the last few days.

She is very SHY of her work. When she is finished she squirrels it away. She is not happy that I photograph her work but she knows that it is the price she has to pay for being my daughter. I have offered to buy this painting.

How much do you think it is worth?

I offered her $5. She wanted $10, then changed her mind and said $15. What would YOU pay, though she will not sell it to anybody but I and I dare not sell it!

Today Is ‘Michaelmas Day’ 2018 — Happy Michaelmas, Enjoy Your Goose.

Since I am not into angels this is really not my thing — though I am always happy to eat goose (even once, 40-years ago, in Thailand, eating swan thinking it was duck).

But, when I hear ‘Michaelmas’ it does bring back memories — now filtered by decades of time. As some of you know I had a very traditional British upbringing, including Public (i.e., Private, fee-paying) School and British Universities. At Mill Hill, in particular, ‘Michaelmas’ was always used to denote the Fall (i.e., Sept. to Dec.) term. I associate that with Rugby.

So, it crossed my mind that I should share with lovely, quite British tradition with some of you — as a de facto ambassador for the Brits.

Enjoy.

If you are into Angels this is YOUR DAY.

Wonder whether geese know of angels

Nikki Haley On TV Again, Today, With Her Necklace With The Perfectly Innocent ‘Crescent Moon’ Pendant.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. Yes, she was on CNN this morning — with Jake Tapper.

I always see a spike in my hits and see it in my ‘search engine terms‘.


I always know when she has been on TV.

I see a definite spike in the hits I get on this blog. I love and think it is funny that I am about the only one who has covered this pendent — hence the attention I get.

I have also come to think that Nikki Haley is being mischievously provocative with this ‘crescent moon‘ pendant. She must know by now that it confuses folks. But, she is not backing away. That also raises the question. Is it really true that Donald Trump gave it to her and as such she feels obligated to wear it?

What fun. Enjoy.

Teischan Back Using The Power Saw — With Aplomb.

Click to access May 2018 post.



I showed her how to use this power saw back in May. She cut a LOT of wood that day — for shelves in her room — and got the knack of it. She also felt comfortable. She didn’t need to cut anymore wood until today — yet again for shelves. This time I just set it up, checked it was OK and handed it over. Had to help her a few times but she did 95% of it on her own. I am glad.

Also glad the saw is getting used. I got it last year when I did the deck railings. Haven’t really had a need for it since, other than her projects.

Hula Hoop Magic With 5 Hoops — 20 Second Video.

by Anura Guruge



Click to ENLARGE.


Spur of the moment. Was not planned. I was out taking my daily photos when I caught her practising. She does not let me take too many pictures. So, I snapped 19 of these quickly. She is using 5 hoops. Maybe 6. She has another one coming. In total she has about 8 or 9. Maybe more.

Decided that stitching them into a quick, 20-seconds video was the best way to share them.

Enjoy.

Went to Lowes looking for Greenhouse window and oil-based driveway sealer. But, you couldn’t escape the Halloween stuff. Cute. Couldn’t resist taking some pictures. I actually thought I took more. I will have to go back, but per my calculations I have 6 more week.s
