Happy “Father’s Day” 2019 — Have A Blast.

Yes, that happens to be by new Atoll 11′ Inflatable Stand Up Board (iSUP) that arrived on Saturday just ahead of Father’s Day.

Teischan (13) is convinced that I timed it as such, and that it is my present to myself. As if I would be that organized or self-serving.

Happy Father’s Day.

Not going to be using the Board on Sunday. Cold and rain.

A “Jack Daniel’s” Themed “Father’s Day” Cake That Only A Sri Lankan Would Design.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE and savor.



Yes, ONLY available in Sri Lanka
from the irrepressible ‘Kapruka.com’.



Anybody who has followed this blog for any length of time will know that Sri Lanka’sKapruka‘ makes some incredible, world-beating cakes. I rave about them often enough.

But, THIS Father’s Day cake really does take the cake!

When I saw it, I cracked up LAUGHING. Only in Sri Lanka. Only by a Sri Lankan.

There is so many things wrong with this cake and so many different levels.

And to exacerbate things, ‘drinking’ is still has social and cultural stigmas and women, in Sri Lanka, are not permitted to buy alcoholic drinks at bars.

So, we now have a cake sporting 4 bottles of “Jack Daniel’s”.

First and foremost, what exactly are YOU trying to tell your Dad. That he is a raving dipsomaniac?

Let’s assume that he is, i.e., he is a raving dipsomaniac. What is he going to think? Do you think he is going to appreciate this cake. I doubt it. It will aggravate him, no end, on two fronts. He doesn’t want the bloody cake, he wants at least one bottle of Jack Daniel’s. So, that will be his first gripe. I don’t want this damn cake, you should have spent the money buying me a good bottle. Then, the second gripe. This really does look like somebody is taking the mickey out of you. Implying that you are a raving dipsomaniac.

Well, I do NOT have to worry. Nobody sends me cakes or makes me any. That I do not eat cake might be a small factor.

But, I am not sure how I will react if I got this cake.

Now, if it also came with 4 bottles of Jack Daniel’s, all could be forgiven. By the time you finished two of the bottles you wouldn’t even remember the cake.

Happy Father’s Day — especially IF you are a raving dipsomaniac. I can relate. Cheers.

Flowers & Flora In and Around Our House — June 14, 2019.

This is not comprehensive or even representative. I did NOT set out to take pictures of flowers today. To be honest I was in a rush. I was snapping away at random. It was only when I uploaded the pictures that I realized that I had quite a few in the ‘flowers & fauna’ category. So, decided to do a quick post so I could share them with you. Nothing special here and I will reiterate that I was rushed. SMILE.

‘Bob 319’ Robotics End-Of-Season Dinner, ‘Prospect Mountain High School’ (Alton, NH) — June 14, 2019.

Prospect Mountain High School’sBob 319robotics team (which includes Devanee) had another bumper year, winning many titles in competitions far-and-wide, and being the runners-up in their national competition in Detroit — in April.

School is coming to an end, and the seniors like Devanee have graduated. So, this was the end-of-season congratulatory dinner for the team, all of its boosters, supporters, family and friends. It was a good night. Good and plentiful food. Everybody had fun with the night ending with a final demo of this years robot.

‘Atoll’, To Their Credit, Honors “Father’s Day” Special, Though I Bought Inflatable Paddle Board Through Amazon.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.

On their Website: atollboards.com.


I saw the “Father’s Day” special offer on their Website. There was no mention whether I would get it if I ordered the board through Amazon.

I really wanted to order it from Amazon. I get 6-month, interest free financing and it is crazy not to avail oneself of that generous offer. So, I contacted Atoll.

To their credit they immediately told me that they will ship me the 8″ Flex Fin, free of any charges (including shipping), as soon as I provide them with my Amazon order number. I was impressed. It confirmed my belief that they were a CLASS ACT. Glad I went with them rather than iRocker.

I sent them the Amazon order number and WITHIN MINUTES they sent me an USPS tracking number for my fin! WOW. Was I delighted.

So, now you know. You still have time left.
