Sri Lanka, Alas, Got Its 15-Minutes Of Media Fame In The U.S. Today — 1st Time Many Would Have Heard The Name.
Not so with the Easter 2019 atrocity. Sri Lanka on its own. TV news started with the Sri Lanka story. This was BIG.
I can assure you that this would have been the first time millions of Americans ever heard of ‘Sri Lanka’. I know that they don’t know.. I live with it every day.
As of now some will remember — alas with the ‘terrorist’ connotation.
Well, I guess we can’t have it all.
I am a news junkie, but a rather observant one. I do NOT get distracted by the latest ‘shiny object’.
It crossed my mind.
What do YOU think?
Did this cross YOUR mind.
Just pointing it out.
‘They’ would NOT be short of resources, contacts and means.
Think about it.

Very strange. Inexplicable, weird and kind of disconcerting.
They have changed the menu and I am not sure whether it is for the best (and I do happen to own Wendy’s shares).
They, as is their practice, had two large TVs. It was streaming news and stock market happenings including stock prices. I had not checked any stock in a few hours but seeing Google down $15 did not seem right. I didn’t get too excited to begin with. I then saw some references to the trade war with China! That seemed wrong. I had heard, in the morning, that we had declared a truce on that. Ahhh!
Then I happened to notice the day and time. May 15. It was May 21. The time was also wrong.
Tried to explain this to an oriental manager. He was not too conversant with the English.
Search on ‘Burgers’.
These podcasts supposedly started on Monday, September 25, 2017 — i.e., 3 days ago.
I had hoped that they would make it to YouTube. Appears not yet. Let’s hope that that does happen.
Given that it was Ann Summers that came up with the notion of a ‘National Orgasm Day‘ back in 2001, those of us who know the legacy invariably turn to them around this time of the year to see what they have in mind to commemorate the day in style. This year it is this new collection of magnetized, powered sex toys. The video, reminiscent of ‘beautiful agony’ was cute and as ever masterful. So don’t dilly dally, it is going to be upon you in 11-days.
I always think that my ‘Orgasms: 101 Facts & Trivia‘ is a great way to celebrate this important worldwide holyday.
It has been coming on July 31, without fail, since 2000. So this is the 17 ‘National Orgasm Day‘ (NOD). So that is just over 3-weeks hence. So an early heads up.
I will remind you and keep you posted of all relevant happenings over the next three weeks.
Get ready. Plan to have a ball.
Wow. ‘Just’ 37-years ago? But, as far as I am concerned it has always been around. I didn’t make it to the U.S., this last time around, until February 1985 [the first time having been, but for a year, in Buffalo, 1967 – 1968]. So, CNN was here when I got here. Not sure when I started watching it. I think I was first exposed to it in all the hotels I was staying — given that I was travelling on business three to four days a week during those first 18 months.
I am a news junkie and have been for at least a decade. I watch CNN and MSNBC for at least 90-minutes in total every day. So I am sure glad that we have CNN.
Happy Birthday, CNN. Thanks Ted.
