You can find this, on Twitter, #SlingAnswers


I have checked, double-checked, triple-checked and then checked again.

None of these Pakistan vs Windies T20s are available on Sling TV Willow. They might be available on Willow, BUT not through Sling TV.

So, Sling TV, as they so often do is LYING.

I am so through with Sling TV.

I checked. I am paid up until April 22, 2018. That is IT. I will pull the plug.

Through With ‘Alton Central School’ (ACS) Grade 6 — Resorting, With Regret, To Homeschooling.

by Anura Guruge

We have had a continuous albeit checkered, 12-year relationship with ‘Alton Central School‘ (ACS) since we moved to Alton, New Hampshire in April 2007.

ACS has some very good teachers, and I have sung some of their praises over the years. Some of those teachers, one in particular, wrought magic in the now 12-year old Teischan. [Devanee started at ACS ahead of Teischan, hence the 12-year relationship, though Teischan has only been attending ACS for 9.]

Homeschooling is NOT something that I am particularly fond of doing. We did it for a year for Devanee, when she was being bullied at ACS, and I was hoping I would not have to do it again.

Alas, not so.

Today, after much soul-searching and regret, we pulled Teischan out of ACS and will be homeschooling her for the rest of the school year.

5th Grade was bad — and as some of you may know a teacher ‘left’ mid-stream.

6th Grade has been even worse. I have had so many meetings with the Superintendent, Principal, all the teachers ….

In the end there was but just one viable course open to us. Homeschool her for now and HOPE that 7th Grade will be better.

Well, that is the headline for now. I will post more, if I get the time, as we go along.

“The Good Karma Hospital”, ITV Series, Season 2, Now On “Acorn TV”.

by Anura Guruge



Click to access IMDb.com listing for the ITV Series.



Happened to find it on ‘Acorn TVserendipitously. We hadn’t been to Acorn in a few days, and as such had not seen the ‘banner’ saying Season 2 was here.

Teischan, our British TV aficionado loves this Series, so we had no choice but to watch Episode 1 of Season 2.

It was “OK”. I think it is badly, if not downright poorly, written. Very improbable and contrived storylines. Plus the appearances of the locals confound and confuse me. Most of them do not look Sri Lankan though the series is filmed in Sri Lanka. I do like seeing what today’s Sri Lanka looks like given that I have not been back in 26-years!

But, you, like Teischan, may love it. So, just wanted to make sure you knew that Season 2, which started showing in the U.K. in March 2018, is now available in the U.S. — though not in Canada.
