Kind of late in the morning this year —
7 minutes after 6 am.
Last year it was soon after midnight.

I will NOT be up.
Way too early for I.



Days start getting shorter — and I hate that.

To I, it means Winter is on the way.

06:07 am Eastern in the USA — 10:07 am GMT.

Teischan’s Father’s Day 2018 Handcrafted Art.

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE.

This, as was her 2018 Mother’s Day art was done by her on cardboard. She continues with the somewhat Indian-influenced, symmetrical patterns. I like it. Pretty elaborate. Our big problem is we are running out of wall space for all her art! It would be churlish not to display it, but we just don’t have any room.

Would appear she did all of this in a couple of hours.

Why I Am Way Beyond Being An Atheist: Part II … Floods At Lourdes, The Marian Miracle Center Of The Universe.

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE.

From Facebook.

Lourdes with its Marian (i.e., Virgin Mary, mother of Christ) Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes — the place that millions visit a year to pray for miracles!

This is why the 2nd image (above) just cracked me up. They want us to pray for Lourdes. Sacré bleu. People go to Lourdes to pray — and now you want us to pray for Lourdes. That is like being told to bring coal to Newcastle!

If the Virgin Mary has decided to turn a blind eye on Lourdes, her spiritual home on earth, who am I to try and intercede. She, according to her army of followers, is all powerful. So, my take is very simplistic. I am going to let her take care of this.

“Summer Of Love Concert” At The “Capitol Center For The Arts”, Concord, NH — June 13, 2018.

It was a BLAST. It was BRILLIANT.

It was FREE.

Thank YOU (again) to the amazing “William H. Gile” Trust
that put on these FREE concerts in Concord, NH.

This was an unexpected bonus. I had NOT heard of this concert until quite recently when I got a flyer, in the mail, from the “Capitol Center For The Arts” (since I am a patron). I thought it would be too late to get tickets, but I managed to get 4 though they were not the great seats I have managed to get to “William H. Gile” concerts in the past. I had never heard of this ‘concert’, so was not sure what to expect.

So, so GLAD we went. It exceeded all expectations. Kind of a hybrid ‘tribute band‘ cum ‘legends in concert‘ mix that just covered songs from 3-years, viz. 1967 to 1969 — the “Woodstock Generation“. They really went to town. Talk about over the top energy. Very, very well done. This was my music.

I would readily go and see them again; even pay to see them. But, noticed on their Website that they don’t have that many gigs. They could be expensive to hire. A LARGE cast. Typically 15 – 16 performers on the stage. I heard the cast was close to 20.

It was a good night. The theater was fairly well packed. Some empty seats. That surprised I. Folks missed a great event.

Thank YOU, “William H. Gile” Trust. Much appreciated.

This Is Why I Am Way Beyond Being An Atheist … I Do Not Believe In Any Religion.

by Anura Guruge

Click image to access U.K. “Independent” original. Google “Docho Eshete” for MORE coverage.

IF I were to believe in a God or even a god I would expect better. Jeee, this guy is supposed to be doing God’s work. Never made sense to me … church buses crashing, pastors getting killed in church. This is why when I was about 18 I gave up on all religions. It was very easy for I.

Just the other day I posted about this Sri Lankan who is utterly devoted to God but God forsakes him more often than not!

Anywho … when I saw this crocodile story it did crack me up. I am sorry. I can’t help my perverse sense of humor.

Enough said …

Anthony Bourdain Should Have Walked 100-Yards In My Shoes To Appreciate How Awesome His Life Was!

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE.

As the above two prior posts clearly demonstrate, I have absolutely NO bloody SYMPATHY for these spoilt, self-indulgent rich buffoons. What I have is total and utter contempt. They deserve to die.

Bourdain, from what I can see was the WORST of the recent bunch.

He left a 11-year old daughter.

He was a PIG for doing that.

I have a 12-year old daughter. I live for HER.

Bourdain, there was always something about YOU that never clicked with me. I kind of had a suspicion that you were a fraud, a con-artist.

Well, others can sign your praises. Not I.

They should try my life — even for just a day. I don’t have the fame or fortune. I haven’t visited France in nearly 25-years (and I fully appreciate that there are billions that have never visited France). IF I can go through life, daily, at 64, with nothing like the life that these celebrities live, why should I feel sorry for them. Their lives can’t be anything as bad as mine.

Yes, this will offend some, BUT somebody has to say this and somebody has to stand up and be counted. And I am.

U.S. State Department Cites D-Day As An Example Of Close Relations Between The U.S. & Germany!

I kid you NOT. This is TRUE.

Not an April Fool’s prank. This was 2-days ago!

This could ONLY happen in Donald Trump’s America!

Sacré bloody bleu. This is the U.S. State Department. U.S. State Department. What are they smoking?


I used to know folks that worked for that esteemed and August Government agency. They will be so embarrassed and sad. You can’t feel angry. Just sad.

I feel bad for the Americans.
