Acadia Ocean Drive in March 2018
when we visited in Winter during a storm.


The problem is the SNOW. They have kept the roads open BUT are not plowing.

I heard, this morning, that Ocean Drive is basically closed due to snow.

Not sure you are planning on visiting right now but I wanted to give you a heads up.

We went in early March 2018. I had fun. I walked the entire Ocean Drive twice — once in a gail.

Hopefully the SHUTDOWN will be over by March 2019!

National Geographic, October 2018, Goes Over The Top With Classic Topless ‘Tribal’ Pictures.

by Anura Guruge


October 2018 ‘National Geographic’.

‘Threatened by the Outside World’ article — page 42.

Click to ENLARGE.






Classic and classical! Vintage National Geographic tribal topless from the 1950s. Cracked me up. As soon as I saw the article I had a sneaking feeling that National Geographic will include some Tribal Topless. I was right. Very blatant. No attempt to disguise it or make it less obvious. Right in your face.

First topless in National Geographic since the March 2018 issue — and the picture there was from a 1965 issue.

The last proper tribal topless was in the June 2016 issue. I had been concerned that National Geographic will stop the tribal topless now that ultra-conservative ‘Fox News‘ owns 73% of the ‘society’. Guess I need not have worried.

But, then there is also this. In March 2018 National Geographic apologized for its racist coverage of ‘bare chested exotics’ — i.e., tribal topless pictures. What fun. What hypocrisy.

“The Chart Room” is a well-known landmark just a few miles prior to the MAIN Hulls Cove entrance to the Acadia National Park. Click to ENLARGE. Created by Anura Guruge.



Thursday, March 1, 2018.

This was NOT a serious accident, unlike the one in September 14, 2017, that killed an elderly pedestrian in “Chart Room Restaurant” parking lot.

This was ahead of the approaching storm and as far as I can tell there was no bad weather involved.

For the Island, Mount Desert, this is a busy stretch of road. I do NOT think the restaurant was open. Not much open up there this time of year.

National Geographic, March 2018, Slips In A Topless ‘Tribal’ Picture Pinning It On Paul McCartney.

by Anura Guruge


March 2018 ‘National Geographic’.

Front pages — “From the Editor“.

Click to ENLARGE.


Click to ENLARGE. This was the interviews — “From the Editor”.

It was cute, at multiple levels, and brought a wry smile to my lips. Paul McCartney, you dirty dog.

January 1965. I must have seen that too, in Ceylon. I would have been 11, Paul 22.

Intriguing. That was his inspiration for “Lady Madonna“. I just checked the lyrics. See below. Yes, he does have “Lady Madonna, a baby at your breast“. Hhhmmmm.

Did he keep that January 1965 issue this long? Mary McCartney, in the photo credit, is his mother.

You just would have thought Paul would have seen quite a few OTHER breasts. Interesting.

As far as I can tell this is the first Topless in National Geographic since June 2016 — and this one, in the scheme of things, is pretty innocuous. But, I wanted to make sure that I did document it.

Interesting interview. I think I knew that he was a vegetarian.

I also think that I might be able to manage “Meat Free Monday“. Maybe I will start next week.
