Just The Two Of Us On New Year’s Day, 2019.

Hampton Beach, New Hampshire on New Year’s Day, 2019.

We invariably end up in that area, i.e., greater Portsmouth, on New Year’s Day. This was last year.

Notice that I still haven’t lost my long scarf — the one I retrieved, from the main road, in Boston, opposite the Aquarium, dodging buses and cars to do so.

Teischan, now a year older, was with us too. She took this picture with her new phone.

My Next Car, IF I Can Scrape Together The Money. (All Help Gratefully Accepted).

by Anura Guruge


Isn’t she a beauty? Classic.

Only problem is that I do NOT have the funds to get her. If I did I would have driven her home TODAY.

Haven’t worked out what it is. That doesn’t really matter since I know it is BRITISH and that is all that matters and counts. Might be an Austin, might be a MG.

So this is now my dream car. I am not proud. IF you want to help me get it, I will be eternally grateful.

It is at ‘Brit Bits‘ in Rye (on the Portsmouth border) in New Hampshire. So, it is more or less local.

“The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” Movie (2018) — V. Cruel Bait And Switch!

by Anura Guruge

Click to access listing for this disappointing movie.

DISAPPOINTING — Teischan (12) a connoisseur of “The Nutcracker“, having taken part in two semi-professional productions and having seen the ballet multiple times, including with the ‘Boston Ballet‘.

Flaccid — the Dad, who was not impressed at all, at all. It was a matinee and our two tickets, together, came to $16.50. In reality, that was $9.50 TOO MUCH. Waste of money. Wait until it comes out on TV.

I guess you CANNOT IMPROVE on the original and it was stupid to try.

I am both surprised and disappointed with Disney. They could have and should have done better. This was … well, FLACCID. Really. Flaccid.

It could have been the projection at the theatre we attended — our perennial, ‘Cinemagic‘ in Portsmouth — but the colors were dull. Even dark. More vibrant colors would have helped. Actually anything would have helped.

PLEASE do NOT go to this expecting the dancing, music and story of the original. This is a cruel, very cruel bait-and-switch.
