Not sure how many people realize that he was British. Many may not know or care that he was knighted and as such was Sir Chaplin as of 1975 — two years prior to his death.

He was banned from the U.S. suspected of Communist sympathies. Quite the life. Eventful to say the least.

The ‘Great Jewish Revolt’ Ended This Day, 1,944-Years Ago With The Fall Of The ‘Masada’ Hilltop Fortress.

Masada. Wikipedia link: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Masada.


The eventual fall of Masada was quite the event. Definitely worth reading up on.

Thus ended the First JewishRoman War, 66 – 73 CE. So around 40 years after JesusCrucifixion.

That this anniversary falls on Easter this year is rather special. Worth reflecting upon.

Google Disappoints Sri Lanka Once More — No Google Doodle For 2017 Avurudu (Sinhala New Year).

I have been keeping an eye for the last few hours. Checked a few minutes ago at 9:10pm U.S. Eastern time. It was 6:40am on Friday, April 14, 2017.

So, well into the morning in Sri Lanka so to speak. Avurudu is well underway.

They have been hoping for an Avurudu Google Doodle for years after I managed to get the very first Doodle for Independence Day in 2013.

But they have yet to do one for New Year or Vesak.

Ironically, to add salt to the wound, they do New Year Doodles for Thailand and Bangladesh who also celebrate more or less on the same day.

Well, there is always next year.

Happy New Year, irrespective.
