I Sued Ghislaine Maxwell’s Dad, Robert, In 1983 & Won.

One of my small claims to fame. It was said that trying to sue ‘Robert Maxwell‘ was folly. That he never settled & that he would bankrupt you with legal maneuvers. Well, he settled!

OK. To be pedantic, I sued his private publishing company ‘Pergamon Press‘ rather than he, himself. But, as far as all of us were concerned we were suing Robert ‘bloody’ Maxwell.

It was for copyright violation. He tried to steal the copyright to my first (& most successful (& thus, famous)) book, ‘SNA: Theory & Practice‘. Folks told me it was minor. That it did not affect my royalties or my authorship. Heck, NO. I wrote it. I wanted my copyright.

This was in my heyday. I hired the BEST Queen’s Counsels (QC) I could find in London. It wasn’t cheap, BUT it was worth it. I was so mad.

It didn’t go to court. They settled in a few days, once the QC wrote to them. They caved in. They didn’t have a leg to stand on.

Bloody Maxwell.

To be FAIR, his company ‘Pergamon Press’ was the making of I. If not for them, I would not be here. But, that didn’t give them the right to try & steal what was mine. Something very dear to I.

Bolstered by that victory, I went after two other entities for copyright violations. Won those too. SMILE. 3-0 when it comes to copyright & I.

New Hampshire DOES NOT have a statewide law banning toplessness
just a local ordinance in Laconia.

Beautiful day. Would have been a SHAME not to go topless. Earlier in the morning I was wearing a 12 lbs weighted vest — but with nothing underneath. This was after I had taken that vest off. SMILE Somebody has to do it. We have to keep New Hampshire topless ready & friendly.

Did you see the picture with butterfly? SMILE. Lots of lilies. I like lilies. Hope you like them too. Hopefully a change of scenery tomorrow. So, maybe I can get you some new genres. Stay tuned. Enjoy. I did. SMILE.

1,000,000 (MILLION) Steps Walked In Two Months — May & June, 2020.

by Anura Guruge


1,003,107 steps
in 61-days
(16,443 steps/day)

480.2 miles
(7.9 miles/day.)

I KNOW that there are those that walk more than this, BUT, I am HAPPY.

Yes, I could easily walk more, the problem is that of TIME — my eternal nemesis. I now spend around 2.25 hours a day walking. That is a BIG chunk of time for I. SMILE.

I did NOT set out to walk ~500,000 steps a day.

I just changed ONE metric in my life. For 30-years I had followed this ‘3-days ON, 1-day OFF‘ paradigm. One day of rest, after each 3 days of exercise to let muscles recover. BUT, that was when I used to run — as opposed to walk. I don’t stress my muscles & body as much now. I still run — but not daily, and never too far. Yes, I am still ‘babying’ my knee after my quad tendon surgery last year. SMILE.

On my days off I walked less than 10K steps — INTENTIONALLY.

Then on April 17, 2020, I stopped doing that. I decided to TRY & hit 10K every day — though aiming for less than 16K steps on my days off.

And this is the result. I am happy.

Am I fit. I think I am OK for somebody who will be 67 in 2-months.

My VO2 Max is 42 & per Garmin my fitness age … Well, this picture says it all.



Am I happy & content. Hhhhhm.

I would like to lose another 10 pounds & get my VO2 Max. up. But, beggars can’t be choosers.

I do NOT DELUDE myself. All of this means NOTHING. I can have a stroke or a heart-attack TODAY. SMILE. I am not totally stupid — just partially. SMILE.

But, I like walking. I take pictures while I walk. I, quite literally, smell the roses. I think. I am happy.

Thanks. Cheers. SMILE.

Have YOU Heard About Dan Brown (As In ‘Da Vinci Code’) & His Ex-Wife (12-Years His Senior).

by Anura Guruge

Click image to read story in the ‘New York Post’.


I had heard that she, 12-years OLDER than him, was the REAL BRAINS
behind the operation.

Click to ENLARGE & read here. Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dan_Brown


Wow. Wow. Wow. This is a SHAME. A tragedy. It was news to I. I had NOT heard that they got divorced 7-months ago. This new lawsuit was filed in my New Hampshire today. Hence the news coverage.

He is born in June 1964 is 56. That is YOUNG. She, 12-years older, is then 68. That makes her OLDER than I!

56 & 68. Hhhmmmm.

I, a HUGE fan of Dan, had read, long time ago, that she was the REAL brains of the operation & it was she who came up with the outline for ‘The Code‘.

I not sure what to say.

Dan Brown, with ‘The Code‘, CHANGED MY LIFE. It was my total fascination with ‘The Code’. that got me into popes. And that did change my life.

I wish they both well.

Yes, nobody has sung about ‘raindrops on lilies‘ & I will grant you that lilies, despite their abiding allure lack the olfactory satisfaction of roses. But, come on. Cut some slack for the poor lilies. I think raindrops on lilies look as cute. SMILE. Enjoy.
