This afternoon a LIBRARIAN, yes, a librarian told me that she could NOT find my e-mail online!
Sacré bloody bleu!
I was MORTIFIED.
Google my name.
But, yes, it is TRUE that my e-mail is NOT that obvious. So, I am trying to fix that.
No, I am NOT worried about publicizing my e-mail.
I have had this e-mail, unchanged for over 22-years. Most people have it. Plus, I have some rather effective spam filters and e-mail blockers.
So, again. Anura Guruge e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Donald Trump In His Diwali Tweet Gets The List Of Celebrants Mangled; 96% Of Buddhists DO NOT Celebrate Diwali!
They must have looked it up on Wikipedia — because they got the list HORRIBLY wrong!
Diwali, as most people do know, is first and foremost a HINDU celebration. A very special holiday for them.
So, in any list re. Diwali, Hindus need to come first ….
Having the list starting with Buddhists is a JOKE.
Only a very small, Nepal-specific subset of Buddhists celebrate Diwali.
96%, if not 98%, of Buddhists do NOT celebrate Diwali.
This was a REALLY STUPID Tweet — even by Donald Trump standards.
Yes, there was a 2nd Tweet that tried to rectify matters by mentioning the Hindus.
Realized that this would be of interest to some of you.
They haven’t been downloaded as much I would have expected.
So, I am letting you.
Happy Halloween. Cheers.
It is easy to work out the slang connotation of ‘Pecker’. I know of a great woodpecker joke. It’s punchline tells you all that you need to know of the name ‘pecker’. It goes: ‘So, it is true. Your pecker does get harder the further you are from home‘.
Well, I am just curious as to what Donald Trump is calling David Pecker of late. I am sure it is a derivation, starting with ‘P’, but a tad shorter than ‘Pecker’ per se.
David Pecker is Jewish. So, like all the Jewish ‘Millers’, his surname doesn’t reflect the usual English roots, i.e., somebody involved in ‘packing’ (as in wool or fish into a barrel). I really didn’t spend much time trying to research it (because it is not that important) but from the little I gather it appears that Jews in Europe have been using it for some time now.
Well right now I am only interested in Pecker in is obviously humorous context — because, of late, I have decided that all you can do in the current situation involving Trump is to try and see the funny side of it.
With luck we should get some real good Pecker jokes over the next few weeks. The current batch, on Twitter, is rather tame and obvious. So, get cracking.
Search ‘South Africa‘ & ‘Trump’.
Trump, As Ever, Got The Facts Mangled, BUT South Africa Is Indeed Planning To Seize White-Owned Farms.
On Google News search for ‘south africa white farmers‘
more stories like these.

NO KILLINGS of white farmers, as yet, from what I can tell.
But, the PLANS for seizing White-owned farms is indeed being talked about. Not sure if any have been seized as yet. I had heard that this was on the cards. This, for us in the know, is nothing new. It happened, as one the stories above points out, in neighboring Zimbabwe. Wasn’t pretty and their were dire consequences.
But, this type of ‘grab’ is something that ex-colonial countries think is their right. My own adoptive father spearheaded the ‘Schools Takeover‘ in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) during 1950 – 1960. It wasn’t farms, but mainly church owned schools. The Christians were NOT happy. They tried to assassinate my adoptive father, multiple times, and supposedly to kidnap me.
I need to look into this more. This was just to give you a head’s up and point out that Trump’s tweet was not all kosher.
It is official as of around 1pm (Eastern). Atlantic Broadband, despite charging me for it, CANNOT deliver 1 Gig to their modem, at my house! The best that seems to come out of the modem, when my PC is directly attached to it, is around 550Mbps — but on average 450Mbps.
Atlantic Broadband has admitted that that was NOT right. They are sending another technician, on Friday, between 2 – 5pm, to see if they can rectify it.
We spent 40-minutes. He, ‘Dave’, was very nice. He tried all sorts. But, could NOT get a reading that even got to 600Mbps.
Appears I am the FIRST to get ‘1 Gig’ in Alton [NH]. Possible that the cable might not be up to par.
I will, of course, keep you posted.
P.S., For the second time in a week I have had success getting Tech. problems resolved via Twitter.
My December 5, 2017, “A Place To Call Home” tweet she liked.
If referenced this post.
Now as some of you know I am not into celebrity following and my inability to identify actors/actresses is legendary. Marta Dusseldorp, is an exception. I do recognize her and know who she is.
So, this was a thrill. Teischan will be ‘impressed’ I hope.
