Though a reluctant ex-pat (for way too many decades) Brexit is dear to I. I never wanted my GREAT Britain (in which I had lived very contentedly since 1969) to join the E.U. As I explained in my earlier post of today, I wanted GREAT Britain to put MY COMMONWEALTH first and foremost. Commonwealth first. All other countries well below those of the Commonwealth. That is how it used to be. I am the proud & patriotic product of the British Commonwealth. I will not betray my roots and values.

I wanted to mark the occasion.

6pm Eastern was perfect. I was in front of our big TV at 5:58pm to celebrate. Made sure Teischan was with I. She understands Brexit. It was good.

I am GLAD. A relief.

But, I fully appreciate that the heavy lifting starts as of now.

Watch Mighty Parade & Celebrations For China’s 70th Anniversary ‘National Day’ — Oct. 1, 2019.

by Anura Guruge



3-minute highlights.


3-hour HD version
from Chinese TV.


October 1, 2019 marked the 70th anniversary of ‘modern’ China — i.e., 70-years since Communist Rule.

They marked it with a huge parade. Some claim the largest military parade — at least in recent times.

I am fortunate enough to watch British news — typically Sky News on my Roku — many nights a week. Last two nights British news has started off showing parts of this parade before cutting off to talk about the protests in Hong Kong. I did not see the parade covered at all on CNN and MSNBC news. So, I wanted to make sure YOU at least heard about it.

Definitely worth watching. Lots of high-tech military innovations.

You can thank me later.

This ‘Sky News’ Program About Sex Worker Problems In My Ol’ Stomping Ground, ‘Swansea’, Was Disheartening.

Yes, it was a LONG TIME ago, 45-years ago, BUT this is NOT the Swansea that I loved and remembered. It was a far, far more reserved and dainty city. Plus, I also spent most of my time outside of the City per se, in the Uplands & Sketty. Shame. I guess you can never go back. But, I have to assume that other cities in the U.K. have this problem — much worse,

In my day, which was 40 years ago, their claim to academic fame was in the area of ‘finite element mechanics‘ — now known as ‘finite element method‘.

Wild dogs sneezing! Wow.

Way to go.

I guess they will NOW have to research whether the Russians try to interfere with this voting with fake sneezing.

NO Surprise That DISH’s Sling TV Continues To Struggle — Riddled With Technical Problems & Pitiful Customer Support.

I have now had ‘Sling TV‘ on my Roku 3 for nearly 11 months. I got Sling TV so that I could watch cricket on Willow and UK OneWorld Sports.

I have had NOTHING but trouble with Sling TV — including yet another episode of video loading errors last night.

Sling TV is an unmitigated nightmare.

What makes it worse is that ‘they’ — Sling TV management and customer support — know about the problems and do NOTHING about it.

Why do I stick with Sling TV? It is the only way I can currently have access to UK OneWorld Sports, and in the Summer, THEY have exclusive rights to English Test Matches. That is it.

If it was just Willow I would GLADLY pay the $4/month extra and get Willow directly on the Roku.

So the above articles make eminent sense. IF you have any sense DO NOT subscribe to Sling TV. Sling TV will drive you to distraction.

‘We’, i.e., those that subscribe to the International Sports Package, supposedly already have the new User Interface — as of early December. Trust me, it SUCKS. Sucks big time. It is devoid of program information! I kid you not. You have to click on each program to see what it is.

So, do yourself a HUGE favor and stay away from Sling TV. You will THANK ME for this advice.

Happy New Year.

The Roku, other than for Sling TV, is an absolute JOY — especially with Amazon Prime, Sky News, PBS, Acorn etc.
