OK. In case you are wondering why I am promoting this, other than the extremely good reason that Darla is a very good family friend, I kind of have a vested interest.

I wrote most of the words on page 1. Darla says it is all mine. Well at least 90% is mine. I wrote it over two of my mid-night to 1 am shifts across two nights. Came out well. Darla is happy.

Yes, I do write copy and recently even wrote a 10 minute script for a video.

Former Vatican Secretary of State, ‘My Man’, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone Accused Of Mishandling U.S. $20M. So WHAT?

That I am, or at least was, a HUGE fan of ‘my manBertone is no secret. I did my best to get him elected as the Next Pope. I admire him. My kind of guy. Just do a search on MY ‘popes-and-papacy‘ blog to see my fawning adoration of this good-looking, spry, very smart and loyal cardinal. As some of you know I am not the easiest person to impress — especially if you are a cardinal. Bertone always struck a chord with me.

So now that he is being accused — and I am sure UNJUSTLY — of these wrongdoings I am getting e-mails from ‘my friends’ (though in reality I have none) making fun and basically saying ‘Ha, Ha, Ha’.

My take.

SO WHAT?

Even if he took it for his own personal gain, and no one is saying that exactly, he more than deserves U.S. $20M for his sterling service to the Church.

So what?

I am sure that he, as ever, was only doing what he was asked to do by the (let me just say) ‘questionable’ German Pope — who proved his lack of integrity by resigning the papacy! So, as ever, I would NOT blame ‘My Man’ Bertone. He most likely was only doing what was asked of him — obedience and duty, very atypical for a contemporary Church prelate, his hallmarks.

So, I say again: So what if he took U.S. $20M.

Just goes to show that all Catholic prelates, especially Cardinals, cannot be trusted!

Q.E.D.

He was the #2 man at the Vatican. So if he stole U.S. $20M just shows. So what?

No surprises here.

I never trusted the Aussies. This was way beyond their usual Pay Grade.
Aussies, nice enough in their own way, are known for their brawn
not their brains.

Plus Tony Abbott was providing cover for the perpetrators.
Thanks to Abbott they got additional 2 months to nicely cover
up their tracks. Nice job Abbott. You must be chuffed.

Folks who consider themselves as ‘real’ Buddhists because they were born into Buddhist families (as opposed to Western ‘we are just in it for the meditation‘ Buddhists), especially in places like Sri Lanka and Burma (or whatever they call themselves now) have become so virulently political, rabidly intolerant and pitifully insecure that they make medieval Crusaders who believed that it was “God’s Will” look like pacifists.

Yes, as an ex-Sri Lankan Buddhist I find the current intolerance of other religions and the overt involvement in politics very unsavory. I am glad that I am not a Buddhist. I would be ashamed if I was at what is going on in Sri Lanka in the name of Buddhism.

They are far from shy in Holland. Bless them.

They are far from shy in Holland. Bless them.

As a Brit who grew up with the U.K. Sun Page 3 and topless beaches toplessness in females do not phase me in the slightest. As I have maintained ‘after you have seen the first 10,000 they all look the same’ — and that was after spending many Summers on the beaches of Holland.

I do, however, wish that men with huge bellies would refrain from going topless because that really is offensive.

Given the very positive response that the ‘Topless Tour‘ has received — and we are still being foiled by the weather in New Hampshire — I thought it was ‘sad’ that we now have this unnecessary topless brouhaha.

To say that we are great advocates of breastfeeding would not really do justice to our deep seated belief in the benefits of this the most natural of mammalian activities. Lets just say that Teischan was breast fed for 27 months.

Yes, maybe they should have been a tad more tactful with the folks they picked for these Ads. They must know that just-given-birth females tend to be rather hormonal. But I applaud the motive. All babies should be breastfed.

What Brazil needs to do is to place a phone call to the PopeFrancis. Now that could get him into a pickle. Even the pope, whether Catholic or not, cannot have a problem with breastfeeding … right? Jesus, I assume, wa breastfed … though I guess that whole manger thing might suggest that they also had access to other milk. That Catholic MUST breastfeed should be Francis’ new platform. That would fix the problem once and for all.

Alton Central School (ACS) Superintendent William (‘Bill’) Lander had this to say on his blog from 4 days ago:

blanderjune2blogupdate

Click to ENLARGE. Use link below to access what ACS calls the ‘sau72/blander’ blog. I am not kidding. Check the URL. I had told them, politely, that that is disrespectful (whether or not it is true or not) and that they should change it … but that was months ago.

Link to access the ‘blander’ blog:
http://www.myacs.org/pages/AltonCentralSchool/sau72/blander

 ≡ ≅ ≡ ≅  ≡ ≅ ≡ ≅  ≡ ≅ ≡ ≅

Notice that Deanna had posted a question as a Comment 3 days ago and was waiting for a response.

So she e-mailed the SAU and got this response (quite promptly). So we now know who was on the Search Committee. I am so happy that they managed to keep ‘you know who’ away from it. If LaChapelle is on the Committee does it mean that he was not considered though the U.S. standards for these matters now stress that you don’t have to exclude yourself from consideration just because you are ON the Search Committee. Appears that Dick ‘dickey heart’ Cheney set the precedent for that having nominated himself when he was the Chair of the Shrub’s V.P. Search Committee.

So the ONLY outstanding item now is whether ‘they’ will be able to get their act together for Monday June 2nd.

Butchering the Poor English AGAIN.

This is on the ACS Website under SAU.

‘One-Two’ is a valid expression BUT only in the context of boxing.

Who writes and more importantly WHO approves this stuff?
It is bad enough that we have poor English from Board members.
I am sure that any of Alton’s in the main outstanding teachers would mark this as wrong if a kid wrote it.
So why do we allow the Administration to get away with it?

Another report questioning INTEGRITY of the Australians … which is not surprising. Click to access original.


The good news is that Tony Abbott has NOT lost his credibility. He never had any to begin with.

He and Angus Houston set out to deceive the us, the public, from Day 1. In this case it was never ‘Houston, we have a problem’ it was always ‘Houston IS THE problem’.

Now 5 weeks later, with considerable consideration, I have finally come to the conclusion that Tony Abbott is in cahoots with those that BORROWED the MH370!

Were Australians involved?

Is MH370 in Australia?

All that the Australians did for ‘a month’ was to lead the whole World on a merry wild goose chase WHILE providing incredible cover for the perpetrators.

Was it for money, politics or some other personal gain.

Australians are now calling it a DEBACLE. [1st image]. It is more than that. It is a CRIME against humanity.


Ordered TP-Link TL-WA850RE Wi-Fi Range Extender To Replace Pathetic Linksys (Belkin) RE2000.

Cisco Linksys RE1000 -- piece of junk getting sledgehammer treatment.

Linksys RE1000 gets the treatment it deserves. I pulverize it with a heavy sledgehammer. It proved to be a piece of junk.

With a HUGE amount of help from the Office of John Chambers, CEO of Cisco, I finally, a few days ago managed to get my money back on the pitiful, pathetic Linksys RE2000. The RE2000 was a disaster from start to finish — exacerbated by the fact that I was trying to be nice to Linksys and bought it directly from Linksys rather than Amazon. I will NEVER again buy a Linksys product  and MOREOVER I will adhere, faithfully, to my usual practice of only buying electronics, cameras, optics etc. from Amazon or eBay/PayPal. IF I had bought the damn RE2000 I would have been able to return it with a single click on my mouse — with no problem. Bloody Linksys.



Anyhow I haven’t had a Range Extender for the last two weeks.

That meant I haven’t watched any cricket in two weeks! I was worried whether I would have withdrawal symptoms. Well, I managed. Rather than watching 40 minutes of cricket between 10 and 10:40 pm each and every night BEFORE I come up to start my 3rd shift of work, I have been watching documentaries. I like documentaries. So that has worked out. But, I do miss the cricket.

So last night I had no choice but to order a new Range Extender.

I had seen the TP-Link Extenders BEFORE but had discounted them because they were too CHEAP! I am a confirmed believer that you get what you pay for.

netgearapp1aI was going to get a NETGEAR Range Extender. I had even downloaded and used the NETGEAR Wi-Fi Analytics App on my Android Pad. It is cute. A bit confusing, unnecessarily but has enough data to make it useful. But, last night, serendipitously, and I am so glad, I discovered that NETGEAR Range Extenders create a NEW Wi-Fi network. I had found that the D-Link DAP-1320 did the same thing! Appears that it is technically the RIGHT way to extend a Wi-Fi signal. But it means that your devices have to connect to a DIFFERENT Wi-Fi network name — albeit in this case where the name will be the SAME as your original BUT with ‘_Ext’ added. But, I don’t want that.

From what I gather the TP-Link TL-WA850RE will not create a new network UNLESS I ask it to do so.

At $26.25 with FREE shipping the price was right. But, since it is Amazon, I decided to gamble even further. I bought a USED ONE, from Amazon directly, for $19.89 with free shipping! It is Amazon. If it doesn’t work it will go back. That is the beauty and magic of Amazon. Plus a Range Extender has no moving parts. So what can really go wrong. These could be famous last words. But, I again STRESS. Amazon. What can go wrong? They will take it back.

Of course I will keep you posted.

I just e-mailed TP-Link support. For that price, 1/3rd of that for a RE2000, I can afford to buy 3! So I want to know whether it will make sense for me to use two (2) TL-WA850REs in tandem. One of the 3rd floor and one on the 2nd. Like adding repeaters — which is how a Range Extender should function. Again, I will keep you posted.
