24 Hours After Priest Killed In France, Pope Francis Proclaims “NOT A War Of Religions”! What Is HE Smoking?

Yes, as a driven papal historian, I, more than most, appreciate that popes, the Vatican and many Catholic prelates do NOT want to invoke the spectre of “Religious Wars” because they know, better than most, all the atrocities that happened in the name of the ‘Crusades’ and all of the other killings in the name of religion.

But this is ABSURD even for this pope!

It makes him sound like Trump!

Yes, this is the same pope that said that “Rugby is NOT a violent” sport. At that time I ascribed that to him having ingested too much incense.

But now I suspect that he must be smoking something real potent and it isn’t just that he drinks too much ‘Mate‘.

A Wedding Haka From New Zealand To Add To The Airport Haka.

by Anura Guruge


wedding haka

Click to access must watch YouTube video of wedding hakka posted Friday, January 22, 2016.


We at this household are addicted to hakas especially those done by New Zealanders. Our YouTube channel on the Roku 3 has ‘Haka’ high up in the search list. I saw this in the U.K. “Daily Mail” — which I read, on my Android tablet, first thing in the morning, with coffee, before getting out of bed. I knew I had to share it with YOU. I guess hakas are going to get commonplace in New Zealand if this goes on. The airport haka to welcome the Rugby World Cup winners was great. This wedding haka is as good. Enjoy.

Saracens are the current Aviva Premiership Champions. Also the holders of the Anglo-Welsh cup. Click image to access their Website.


This is big, actually HUGE, by any measure. Two European, albeit British, Rugby legends cum giants, playing an actual Premiership fixture in the U.S. — at the Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey.

Yet another attempt to familiarize Americans with the sheer beauty of true British sports — cricket & Rugby. IF American audiences would JUST watch some good Rugby for 20 minutes they will realize that American football is so flaccid. So slow, so stop-start. I hope this match is televised.


Rugby in Britain is VERY EXCITING.

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.

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.
