As with the Bismarck, this is stuff that all those that were fortunate enough to receive an education in Britain knows about.

We lost a LOT of people and ships. But, as ever, we PREVAILED in the end. {SMILE}

ICC Champions Trophy 2017: Complete Match Schedule June 1 To June 7.

by Anura Guruge



I needed this fixture list for my own viewing edification on Roku Sling Willow.

So, I thought I will share with YOU also — just in case you needed it too.

That is a lot of cricket. Even just watching the highlights I will be way behind by June 3. But, it should be fun. Rain will mess a few matches up. That is a given.

U.S. Copyright Act Was Signed Into Law, This Day 227-Years Ago; May 31, 1790 — By George Washington, No Less.

227-years ago. Good to know that they were concerned about it that long ago — though, to be fair, the U.S., at this juncture, was trying to catch up with Britain’s Copyright Act, a.k.a. ‘Statute of Anne’, passed 80-years earlier.

I am, as a writer and photographer, a great believer in copyright. So far I have contested and won three copyright cases involving my books. Didn’t make any money but justice was done.

Ahead Of Pope Francis’ June 28, 2017 Cardinal Creating Consistory — A List Of All 61 Prior Consistories Since 1900.

Click to ENLARGE.



I had let this very informative Cardinal Creating Consistory Excel spreadsheet lapse after Pope Benedict XVI’s last in November 2012. That it was out-of-date always bothered me. So, I rectified that over the last few days. I also rationalized and simplified it. There is more work required BUT this is good start for this version.

I wanted to share it with you. Shows some interesting trends.

I plan to do more posts specific to the upcoming June 28, 2017 consistory over the next few days. So, stay tuned.
