Why Is The U.K. Giving PREFERENTIAL Treatment To Donald Trump By Flying A Giant Balloon In His Honor?

by Anura Guruge

This is unprecedented!

We, the Brits, have never bestowed such an honor on any prior U.S. President. For that matter, to any Head of State.

Why just for Donald Trump?

I am NOT happy.

This is WRONG. Very wrong.

Trump, at best, should be treated like all other U.S. Presidents before him.

$85, 10.5 lbs “Belly Of The Beast” Ginormous Burger Will NOT Feed 7 IF I Am One Of Them!

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE and savor here. For original menu: In the June 24, 2018, U.K. “Daily Mail” at:

I happened to see this article (see insert above) in today’s U.K. ‘Daily Mail‘ which I assiduously read, multiple times a day.

The claim that it can feed 7 people amused me MUCH! {Laugh} NOT, if I am one of them.

Anywho … the ‘Daily Mail‘, which was never noted for its veracity, got the ‘size’, i.e., weight, wrong by nearly 50%! YIKES.

Well, I went looking for the restaurant since I plan to visit it the next time I am in Vegas. It is 10.5 pounds, NOT 15 pounds.

Eating 2 pounds of meat, especially steak/burger, is child’s play to I. If it is going to me my main meal of the day I can tuck into 4 – 5 pounds of meat and still be slightly hungry!

I kid you not. My prodigious appetite, especially when it comes to meat, defies credulity. But, if you see me you would see it at once — that creeping obesity. I have to control myself. I could eat most of this burger, sans the bread, on my own and I would still have slight hunger pangs.

Well, I now want to go to Vegas. Usually I splurge on the all-you-can-eat buffets. But, this burger could make a decent breakfast.

If I Was Lucky Enough To Have $3 To Spare.

Saw this on the way home from the “North Country“, e.g., “Franconia Notch State Park“, this evening. For $3 I would have to think that this would be quite a buy even though it looks in pretty bad shape. It is a two truck and the winch at the back, painted red (see below), looks in pretty good order.

Right now, I am skint and do not have $3 to spare. Shame. This would have been a nice addition to the few ol’ cars I have.

Another BMW Owner Experiences ‘Instant Karma’ As His Car Catches Fire …

A screen grab from the video.

Not the first time that BMWs have caught fire in front of their bewildered owners. There was a spate of such fires in late 2017 which even prompted a recall of BMWs.

And now this. Could not happen to a nicer bunch of folks. Well, anybody who is familiar with this blog or I will know my utter disdain for most things German — especially their bloody cars. No, I have not forgiven them as yet for bombing England during WWII! I am a very patriotic Brit. Hence why I find all misfortunes involving German cars amusing.


Instant Karma.

BBC 2009 “The Diary Of Anne Frank” Mini-Series To Start on “Acorn TV” June 11, 2018.

by Anura Guruge

Click image to access the Acorn listing for this series.

As part of her Grade 6 homeschooling Teischan just finished reading the book (obviously at my behest). So the timing is very propitious for us.

Though the series is 9-years old I do not think I have seen it before. So, I am looking forward to it. I have been by the house in Amsterdam but never did the tour.

I have had Acorn for at least 2-years. Maybe more. We do watch it a fair bit, so it is worth it for us. You should check it out. There is a LOT of content and some good shows.

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

by Anura Guruge

I kid you NOT. This is TRUE.

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

Click image for CNN’s original coverage INCLUDING a video of her actually SAYING IT!

Click to ENLARGE. You have to read.

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.

Did The President Of ‘SpaceX’ Get The Job Because Of Her Befitting Name — ‘Shotwell’?

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE and read here. Wikipedia:

Never heard of her until earlier today. I went to have a quick look at CNBC and she was being interviewed. See below:

I like Elon Musk and SpaceX and as such stopped for a second to listen. She was impressive. I had not realized that SpaceX had a female President. Then I saw her name. Wow. ‘Shotwell’. What a great name for somebody heading a rocket company. You sure hope they shot well.

Given my fascination with names I had to look it up. Alas it is not a name that was given to archers. Shame that. They think it comes from a place name.

Never mind. Great name for the President of SpaceX. I hope she continues to shoot those rockets well
