My bad. I had never heard of him or his band ‘The Four Brothers‘. My loss. And, I can’t believe this, as with Oliver & Sam Mtukudzi all these folks are dead too! Yikes. Zimbabwe!

So, all we can do is listen to them posthumously. What a shame.

As with ‘Sam’, YouTube brought ‘Marshall Munhumumwe‘ to my attention. I was listening to Sam and then I heard a new song, that I had not heard before, BUT was extremely catchy. It was Marshall Munhumumwe. Thanks YouTube.

Check out the 1st YouTube. What do you think. I will do more research in the next few days. Enjoy.

Sam Mtukudzi, Oliver’s Son, Also Now Dead (At 21) — Was As Good As Dad, Maybe Better!

Click to access my post from a couple of weeks ago.


YouTube introduced I to Sam Mtukudzi just a couple of days ago. Since then I have been listening to him, on YouTube, whenever I get a chance. He is good. As good as his father? Maybe better.

I can’t get over that they are BOTH now dead! One at 66 (my age) and the other, even more tragically, 9-years ago, at 21. Wow. What a loss. Appears that he died under suspicious circumstances.

I kind of, vaguely, was aware that Oliver had a son. But, I had not paid any attention. Maybe now that I think about it, I might have also heard about the death but didn’t give it much heed since it was Zimbabwe! Yikes.

Sam is good. Brilliant. Has the same sound as the father.

I wanted to make sure that you got to hear him. Start at YouTube. You will thank me for this. SMILE.

I Replaced The Cold Water Inlet Valve On A LG Tromm ‘SteamWasher’ (Model WM2688HWM).

by Anura Guruge




Click for Amazon product listing. This is what we used.



The LG washer is about 12-years old. So, judging by the fridges we have had, it was due to start giving trouble. It stopped pulling water early last week. Thanks to the magic of Google and YouTube the wife had the problem diagnosed in no time. She was also convinced that it was a job that we could do. So, she found the part, on Amazon, and we ordered it. It arrived last Friday (one-day late).

On Saturday we went about trying to see if we could do it. Pulling out the washer was the most difficult part. We have it on anti-vibration pads and that added to the difficulty. With three of us pushing and pulling we eventually got it far enough out for me to get to the back.

I had watch the start of the YouTube video. Once I got the drift of it it was easy enough. Looks intimidating. Four (4) water hoses with clips and five (5) electrical connectors. But the electrics just slip off and the way the wiring harness is designed there is no way you can get the connectors wrong when plugging them back. So, that helped. The water hoses, surprisingly, were also easy enough to deal with. Didn’t take long. We were happy.

Pushing the washer back was another story. But, we managed. It all works. I am impressed and relieved. Dodged a bullet. Not counting time and aggravation it cost us a total of $32 to fix it. Cheap enough.

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.

Good News For BUSY Rugby Fans, 17-Minute Highlights Of 2019 World Cup Matches, In HD, Available On YouTube (FREE).

by Anura Guruge


Just a very partial listing from YouTube.com.



Given that NBC holds the U.S. broadcast right for the 2019 World Cup I did not expect to see much on YouTube.

I was pleasantly surprised. NBC, for a change, is being NICE. Yes, they are but 17-minute HIGHLIGHTs but it is in HD and appears to capture what is needed. Yes, it does leave you feeling a bit lost and empty at times, but it is better than nothing.

To be honest, I am quite cool with this. I do NOT have time to watch a full 90-100 minute game — not with my writing and also watching cricket! So, this suits I.

Yesterday, I watched two matches, back-to-back: New Zealand v South Africa & Fiji v Australia. They were both beyond excellent. Must watch. Honest. Some of the running. Will leave you breathless.

MY Queen, Elizabeth II, Nearly 93, Looks STUNNING & Resplendent In Yellow, On Maundy Thursday, In Windsor.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE and ADMIRE.



Click image to access the U.K. “Daily Mail” article with 30+ more pictures.


On what was a gloomy day, both in terms of weather and news (yes, the flaccid Mueller report), this picture MADE MY DAY.

Aren’t we so lucky to have this Queen (and I will confess, with some embarrassment, that I was never a Royalist in my youth). And the U.S. has Trump. Smile.

The word that immediately came to mind was ‘resplendent’. I see that ‘radiant’ is what the media has opted. Either way she just looks GREAT.

Well, it is Maundy Thursday. This was at St. George’s Chapel, in Windsor — which I have visited a number of time.

Just wanted to share this with YOU, hoping that it might brighten up your day too. Enjoy.
