Last Year’s


As with last year Google INCORRECTLY refers to it as
“Sri Lanka National Day”.

Nope. It is INDEPENDENCE DAY.

 


Though it is RECYCLED from last year, this will, nonetheless, make a LOT of people, like 14 million, very happy.

Having snubbed them in 2016 & 2014, Google has again honored Sri Lankan Independence Day, 2019 — 71th anniversary.

I, as the World knows, got the very 1st Google Doodle for Sri Lanka, for Independence Day, in 2013. So, I have connection …

For reasons that I cannot fathom, Google, as they also did (incorrectly) in 2015, again calls it “National Day“. NOT SO! Google should Google that. It is INDEPENDENCE DAY — 70-years.

My 2013 Google Doodle & the one in 2015.

Having snubbed them in 2016 & 2014, Google has honored Sri Lankan Independence Day, 2018 — 70th anniversary at that — with a Google Doodle. A standout one at that — featuring the Maroon & Gold of the Ananda College colors. I am glad.

Short-Sleeved Cricket Sweater Knitted For Me By My Former Workmate Patrice Bourgeois During Her Cancer Treatment.

by Anura Guruge




Earlier this year as Patrice was getting ready for her ‘3-months’ of cancer treatment she did a Facebook post asking if anybody wanted anything knitted since she had run out of ‘projects’ and ‘ideas’ and she wanted to have something to knit in the coming months.

I told her that I did not have any cricket sweaters that fitted and would love one in my ol’ Ananda College (Colombo, Sri Lanka) colors of maroon and gold. Patrice went to work, as she is wont, researching patterns, colors, wool types, needles etc. etc.

Over the months she gave all of us pithy updates on the progress of this sweater. It took her slightly longer than she had expected. But, it was always going to be for Fall 2017 in New Hampshire.

It arrived today — in the nick of time. The temperature is 58°F as I write this post.

It fits beautifully and all she requested from me was a measurement of my chest size.

I am impressed, amazed and very grateful.

Thank YOU, Patrice.

I will wear this with pride and joy in the months to come. She informed me that it is washable. That is good. I do spill stuff.

So more pictures to come.
