HUGE victory for THE EARTH.

Brilliant piece of work by the ‘young’ judge. I don’t think anybody will be able to find fault with her interpretation. That none of Trump’s people realized that they couldn’t do what they hoped to do is beyond the pale. This is sheer incompetence. I haven’t heard Trump railing against this — as yet. I guess he realizes that he has been taken to the woodshed and whipped.

Rejoice. We need these small victories.

2018’s Featured U.K. Nude Charity Calendar Is The ‘Hitchin Rugby Club Ladies’.

Quite a few, very well produced, U.K. nude charity calendars for 2018 — male, female and combined. I will try and share a few more with you.

For my catholic tastes this, the ‘Hitchin Rugby Club Ladies’ calendar, was the most appealing — partly because I am rather partial to rugby. Not a coincidence that in 2015 I also picked another rugby team — the Oxford University Women’s. But, in addition, some great pictures of these rugby playing ladies from Hitchin, and WOW — these ladies are toned.

I am not getting any calendars this year — after doing so for the last few years. The novelty has kind of gone, I think. However, I still like to check what is out there.

Last year as you must remember it was the memorable ‘Oxford University Women’s Rugby Team’ Nude Calendar.

Deanna is still using hers.

This year it is the competing British University — Cambridge.

And it is Unisex and there appears to be more men. I ALREADY ordered a copy for Deanna. See below.

Blues“: no, NOT the music.

And yes, the British media has already made all the jokes about “blue (orbs)“! Crude.

merch_cap_largeBlues” in this context is University ‘colors’ (or what they refer to as ‘Letters’ in the U.S.). It means that the person has represented Cambridge at one of the recognized sports. The term goes back to the “Blue Cap” one got when one was selected to play cricket for the elite Cambridge University cricket first XI.

Cameta Camera — Making Ordering A Camera An Absolute Bloody PAIN.

On Friday, May 13, 2016, I tried to order a Fuji camera kit from Cameta Camera. It turned out to be a terrible ordeal. Took all the pleasure out of buying a new camera. Shame on YOU Cameta Camera.

Until this atrocious, unforgivable experience I have always thought highly of Cameta. Check this post from October 2015 titled “Nothing BUT Kudos, Very High Kudos, For Cameta Camera“.

Well not anymore.

I went to Cameta because they have good kits and because I wanted to show my GRATITUDE for how graciously they had treated me in the past. To be fair, the salesman I deal with, Lou Cohen (ext. 2168), is extremely nice, helpful and professional. The problems are with Cameta’s arrogant, unprofessional (and obviously poorly trained) order processing group.

Well Cameta has a new policy. They call up and check your credentials with your credit card company before they process the order. But it is an all or nothing verification. If Cameta has you on ‘XYZ Road’ and the credit card company has you at ‘XYX Rd’ the verification will fail. If you give Cameta your cell number and the credit card company has your home number the verification will fail.

This is CRAZY. It is NOT Cameta’s job to try and further authenticate a credit card BEYOND name, address, account number, expiration, and ccv code. If the credit card was stolen the credit card company will deal with it. Cameta is trying to be too clever.

Not impressed at all, at all. We finally got the damn order placed — and it was NOT a small order. I don’t buy $300 point-and-shoots (or at least not anymore). Ended up placing the order using my Discover Card. I logged onto Discover pulled up my profile and made sure bloody Cameta had it letter for letter. Though I see a temp. authorization at Discover I have yet to receive an order confirmation from the dastardly Cameta.

I am also NOT going to get the camera till mid next week. Jesus wept. IF I had ordered it with my buddy Ray Messiah at BuyDig I would have had the camera Saturday morning by 10am.

Well lesson well learned. NEVER AGAIN. Screw you Cameta.

Ray I am so, so sorry I did not come to you. I was trying to be nice. That is what happens.

YOU have been WARNED. Stay clear. Shop BuyDig.

Kind of a SHAME since I had actually ordered one as my customary ‘surprise Christmas present for the family’. Last year it was two Drones.  

Well I started hearing the horror stories a couple of days after I placed my order on December 5. Until today I was kind of willing to take the risk. But not anymore. The last thing I need is something catching fire in the house. So I called up and cancelled.

Amazon no longer has the product listing! They have taken it down. That alone is scary!

So a heads up.

Oxford University Rugby Football Club — Women’s (Nude) Calendar 2016: I Receive 3 Copies.

I ordered 4 copies in total — initially just ordering one before I learned that Deanna wanted one.

On Saturday I received a BIG envelope from the U.K. with 3 calendars. So these were the 3 from my second order. I have yet to receive my first order for one.

Anywho … I gave Deanna her copy and she was pleased.

The other two are Christmas presents; one for my 23 year old son, who did try his hand at Rugby.

The pictures, in b&w, are of a high quality.

The calendar part, as you might be able to see from the ‘February’ and ‘September’ pages that appear above, is pretty basic, rather cramped and devoid of the usual annotations one has come to rely upon — e.g., holidays (e.g., Easter, Passover, Hanukkah etc.), phases of the moon. There are, however, a few Oxford Rugby Club fixtures listed. But I guess most people will not be that concerned about the shortcomings in the tabular part of the calendar.

I am glad I got these. I hope you ordered some too.

All I can tell YOU is that there has been a HUGE, DAILY interest in my November 20, 2015 post about the “Oxford University Women’s Rugby Team” nude calendar. No, I have yet to receive any of the 4 (yes, 4) calendars I ordered.

I happened to hear about the Newcastle initiative and felt compelled to SHARE it with YOU given that they are doing both men and female versions and I do NOT want you ladies to feel in any way deprived.

As I said with my “Oxford” post neither Deanna or I have any problems with tasteful calendars such as this — for CHARITY. Neither of us would have any qualms if our kids posed for such an initiative. Nudity is natural. Enjoy.

Merry Christmas.


Amazon Sends Us 3 ‘Barbie Collector 2015 Holiday Dolls’ That We Did NOT Order!

Click to ENLARGE. Three (3) “Barbie Collector 2015 Holiday Dolls” and two vials of concentrated ‘perfume’. In the box they arrived in.


barbiemistake

Amazon listing, from a few minutes ago, for the Barbie. Yes, there is a non-holiday one for $25. But we got the Holiday ones as you can see from the box. Search on “Barbie Collector 2015 Holiday Doll” on Amazon for listing. Click to ENLARGE.


I won’t deny it. We do a LOT of our shopping, online, on Amazon. We have Prime and as such there is no shipping. So it is more convenient than driving to Walmart in Rochester or Concord.

On average, year round, we probably get one Amazon shipment a week, but most of the time we get 2, 3, 4 or 5 deliveries a week! We are BEST of friends with our UPS driver. Now that it is Christmas, and given that I do 100% of all my Christmas shopping online (and I have a LOT of shopping to do), we had 5 LARGE boxes delivered by UPS (and two small ones by USPS). [[Oh. I do own Amazon shares. SMILE. So in away I don’t mind spending at Amazon. SMILE.]

I was EXPECTING 4 large boxes BUT not a 5th. Plus I check my Amazon orders, each ‘morning’ (around 1 am before I go to bed), to see what is being delivered that day. The 5th box was also badly taped. I opened it. You see the picture above.

Deanna was there. I was a bit taken back. I had NOT ordered these Barbies. Neither had Deanna. Yes, Deanna and the kids (who all know my Amazon password) put items in my shopping cart and I just order them. But I had NOT ordered these Barbies. We thought it might have been one of the kids — though they would have to have done it through one of our accounts AND this box was CLEARLY addressed to me. We also KNEW that it could NOT have been a present (say from Teischan’s brother) BECAUSE nobody would send 3 of the SAME Barbie (not even my son).

Then came the FEAR that we had been scammed. Ran upstairs and checked all the important credit cards and my Amazon order record again. NADA.

‘Called up’ (well they called me per the ‘Call Back’ feature) Amazon at the Call Center in Manila, Philippines. Got a young man who was quite good. THE ONLY identification on the box was the UPS Tracking Number. So that was all we could go by. I tracked it on UPS as did he.

We were on the phone for 40 minutes with two holds.

Amazon HAD NO RECORD, whatsoever, of this shipment!

It was eventually determined that an UPS Shipping Label created for one of my other boxes had been put on this box. OK.

But here is the crazy thing that even THEY couldn’t explain. The label was supposed to go on a box with an Ukulele for Devanee. I got the Ukulele — FINE — in one of the other 4 boxes.

Bottom line they TOLD ME to KEEP IT! Give it to charity. We had already figured out that that would be what happen. Deanna had Googled. Had happened to others and in EACH CASE Amazon had told them to keep the shipment. Not sure I like that as an Amazon shareholder. Whoever was expecting the dolls will get ANOTHER SHIPMENT — just late.

Well as the saying CLEARLY states: “Charity Begins At Home”. So we gave one Barbie to Teischan. She wasn’t that excited. She is into ‘expensive’ American Girl Doll dolls.

The other two DEFINITELY will go to good homes. I am happy.

I thought about it, all for a few minutes, and ordered ONE.
For a start it is for CHARITY.
Second I think, if I keep it unopened, it will be one heck of an investment
— down the road!
Deanna will probably want it.
If she doesn’t I might give it to my son. 

IF you would like ONE
and are TOO SHY to order
or can’t afford it
let me know.
I will see if I can get one for you


Brilliant!

What you would expect from women going to Oxford.

Loved it.

As a father of 3 daughters I gave it some thought.

How would I react IF one or more of my daughters posed for a calendar like this?

What do YOU think?

I would be chuffed as punch. Way to go.

Nothing wrong here. Very artistic.

Made my day. I had to share it with YOU.


Following Deanna’s posted comment I realized that one calendar would NOT suffice.

So I ordered ANOTHER 3 for a total of 4.

Deanna will get one. My son will get one and one is a Christmas present for a v. special couple with British connection.

The last one I am going to put away, unopened.

South Africa Batting Line-up Against India Screwed Up, AB de Villiers Must Bat Higher.

AB_de_Villiers_glove_(cropped)Talk about an abundance of riches. The South African batting line is ‘crazy’ in not a GREAT way. Quinton de Kock, Amla, du Plessis, AB, Duminy (who has blossomed in the last 12 months), Behardien and Miller! What a nice problem to have.

Abraham Benjamin “AB” de Villiers at #4 is a waste — and he knows that. Yes, of course, I know that he is wicket-keeping as well, BUT I think he is plenty fit. He should open with de Kock — who I think is THE most EXCITING young cricketer on the scene at the moment! I have seen a lot of him and there is a lot to like. Very pleasing on the eye.

AB coming in at #4 does NOT give him enough overs. That is the issue. AB #3 and du Plessis #4.
