Emperor Haile Selassie I, Revered By Rastas, Was Born This Day 125-Years Ago; July 23, 1892.

by Anura Guruge





To be honest I really don’t know much about him. Yes, growing up in Britain in the last 1960s & early 1970s his name would come up as a ‘figure of importance‘ much like Nelson Mandela who was in prison at the time. I know that he was controversial in the later part of his life. But, then again Rastas revere him and even think that he may be divine. So, it would be wrong and churlish not to mark this birth anniversary — especially since it is the 125th.

Click image to come to the Ann Summers’ page.


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.

Edmund Hillary, One Of The First Known To Conquer Mount Everest, Was Born This Day 98-Years Ago; July 20, 1919.

As a Mount Everest buff of long standing, with quite a decent library of historic books on the ‘Mount’, Sir Edmund Hillary has been a personal hero as far as I can remember — he and Tenzing Norgay (another hero) having conquered Everest just over 3 months ahead of my birth. Plus, Hillary, as a New Zealander, was a member of our glorious British Commonwealth and was listening to ‘Radio Ceylon‘ on top of Everest the night before they made it to the top.

I know enough of the lore to appreciate that we still have a BIG question mark as to whether George Mallory and/or Andrew Irvine managed to make it to the top in 1924 — before perishing on the mountain. And I also will not try to decide whether it was Hillary or Tenzing that reached the top first.

Is Donald Trump Limping — And I Mean Physically.

by Anura Guruge


Donald Trump in Paris today, Thursday, July 13, 2017. 

At the welcoming ceremony with French President Emmanuel Macron.

Watch as he walks — especially the views from the back.

His left leg appears to be WEAK. He is limping.

Start around the 9 minute mark in the YouTube video below.

OK? See what YOU think.



As a papal watcher over the last decade or so I have got attuned to looking for and noticing limps — both popes of that period, Benedict XVI and Francis, having had limps.

You have to watch carefully, but I am sure he is having trouble with his left leg. Yes, he is packing on the pounds again. That never helps.

July 9, 2017 Is NOT “National No Bra Day” — BUT Do NOT Let That Stop you.

by Anura Guruge


Anura Guruge July 9 2017 National No Bra Day


The official (actual) ‘National No Bra Day‘ is October 13 — and has been since at least 2011. Of late that days is used to promote awareness of breast cancer screening.

Over the last couple of years some folks have also started touting July 9 as ‘National No Bra Day’. I guess you can’t have too many no bra days — in reality. So, go ahead. Do what you want to do. Just wanted to make sure that we did NOT lose sight of the October 13 event.

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.
