Australian ‘Mystery Road’ Detective Series On ‘Acorn’ Is Intriguing & Educational.

by Anura Guruge


Click to access the ‘Acorn’ Webpage for this series.



Found it, like so many other gems on ‘Acorn‘, while browsing the catalog looking for good mystery/detective shows. Looked interesting and it sure has been.

We became addicted to ‘A Place To Call Home‘ on Acorn — which was Australian and set in Australia. ‘Mystery Road‘ shares that trait.

Tight, gripping, intriguing. Powerful, in-your-face characters. The mystery is set within an aboriginal community. That is the educational part. we have not had that much exposure to modern day aboriginal life and this show takes you there — in spades. Reminds me, very much, of the Navajos and life in and around my beloved Canyon de Chelly. The male detective is ‘BLACK’ — i.e., an aborigine. That gives it all a nice twist. He has a colorful past too.

We have only watched the first 4 episodes. But, they were good. I can’t wait to go back and finish the series. I think I will not be disappointed.

Donald Trump Is Right, The Boeing 737 MAX Should Be Rebranded … Boeing 737 DON.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. From his esteemed Twitter feed.


Click to ENLARGE and admire.


He is RIGHT. He is, of course, always right. And he is the master of branding. Trump Steaks, Trump Wine, Trump University, Trump Condoms …

DON is perfect. 3-letters., just like MAX.

‘Don’, moreover, is an honorific. So, this works well.

Boeing 737 DON.

Have We Got This Stupid, Or Are They Trying To Make Us Stupider?

by Anura Guruge



Saw this sign in a church in Wolfeboro on Thursday. They actually had quite a few of these.

OK, maybe it is because it is a church and that God thing etc.

But, HHHmmmm ….

What do most people do when they hear a fire alarm? Light up a fag.

Strange. Very strange. This country is going to pot.

First The Indians Litter Space, Then Israel Litters The Moon!

by Anura Guruge


This from CNBC. Google for plenty more.



Yes, accidents happen.

But, it is a shame that we now have litter and debris on the Moon! Yes, on the Moon.

They are claiming that Mount Everest is now like a garbage dump. It would be a shame if we had debris all over the surface of the Moon.

Yes, of course, they didn’t want it to happen, but did they do adequate testing to really, really avoid a failure. I remember reading that their very first rocket burn failed due to a basic programming error. I, alas, did a lot of work with Israeli high tech companies during ‘dot.com’. I learnt that they are cavalier and rush the software. SMILE.

Well maybe it is time for the IAU to step in and start policing and regulating space shots — whether just orbital, to the Moon or Mars.

As I have often stated, I read the U.K. “Daily Mail”, my trusted source of news, online, multiple times a day and have done for ages — having been a ‘Daily Mail‘ subscriber when I lived in the U.K.

When I saw this I knew that YOU would expect me to share it with you. DONE.

I am fairly certain that we are unlikely to see this bikini around Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire. However, IF I am wrong, I would not mind a jot. I will just be happy for.

Just so I could be proved wrong, I am thinking about ordering one for myself and wearing it when I go to the beach. I think I will look OK. The only problem. From what I can see they don’t seem to make it in MY SIZE! They all seem too BIG to fit I. Dilemma. Maybe I could get somebody to alter the small size to fit I.

Indians, Quite Rightly, Get Blasted For Their Irresponsible Satellite Destruction Stunt.

by Anura Guruge


Click to access “Business Insider” original.


By and large I am rather fond of most Indians (and they are a lovable bunch of buggers in general), but they can drive you to distraction and beyond. They are a bunch of cowboys and cowgirls at heart — which is the real reason they venerate cows. That I have to suffer the ignominy, daily, of having to contend with two Indian-run outfits “Willow” (cricket) & “Hotstar” reminds me — daily — that they really couldn’t hold a successful bloody orgy in a Mumbai whorehouse. Their competence is to be incompetent.

This satellite destruction fiasco is but proof. Q.E.D.

If they jeopardize the ISS that would be criminal. I despair.

But, you have to laugh. Because, they will just wag their heads and say: “Very sorry. Very sorry. Not do next time. Very sorry“.

Nudity At The British Parliament As They Debate Brexit — And It Was NOT A Joke, Though It Was April Fool’s Day.

So, British, and it was April Fool’s Day, but in this rare instance I was NOT amused. Brexit is deathly serious and we are at a crisis point. Today’s was a crucial debate and vote. This was not the time for this type of distraction.

Nudity and streaking are very British pastimes and we are usually more than happy to entertain them.

But, not during these crisis days of Brexit. Yes, climate change needs to be discussed BUT after Brexit.

All that said it was amusing enough and you can’t but applaud them for their audacity, planning and tenacity. SMILE. Ah! Us Brits — Brexit or no Brexit.
