“The Anglophile Channel” On Roku.

by Anura Guruge

Click to access their Website.

I just saw this in the weekly “Roku Guide” e-mail blast that I receive.

My adoptive mother was an Anglophile. I am NOT sure I can call myself an Anglophile per se. I am a very local, patriotic and homesick British subject and have been for 35 years. I think citizens are supposed to automatically be fond of their country.

This looks interesting, but not for I. I am not much into celebrities. I prefer to watch the show, which is why I subscribe to “Acorn TV” (below) on Roku. But, I just wanted to make sure YOU knew about it.

P.S., ‘Acorn TV’ is good and just a ‘few minutes ago we watched Season 2 Episode 2 of “Good Karma Hospital” on it.

I sedate them too number plate in Wolfeboro New Hampshire

I have seen it before. You can see it most days in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire.

I saw it again today and it got my goat.

It make me MAD every time I see it. It is so inappropriate and obnoxious.

I realized today that, at a quick glance, you could interpret it as worse! ‘Sed’ –> ‘Sod8’ …. Hhmmm.

It amazes me that somebody would go around with a number plate like this.

Amazing. Sad. A sick person. A very sick person.

Looks Like NO Google Doodle For Sri Lanka 2018 Avurudu (Sinhala New Year) — YET AGAIN!

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE.

It is 6:15am on Saturday, April 14, 2018 in Sri Lanka and still NO Google Doodle for Sinhala New Year — Avurudu.

They have already done one for Bangladesh (above) and Thailand — for 2018.

It could still happen, BUT it is NOT looking good.

I feel bad for the Sinhalese. Google really is giving them the finger! Shame.

Well, I did my bit 5-years ago and got Sri Lanka its VERY FIRST Google Doodle. And I am not even a Sri Lankan anymore — legally.

There are Sri Lankans that work for Google They obviously don’t care.


Happy New Year, irrespective.

Will Google Do A Google Doodle For Sri Lanka 2018 Avurudu (Sinhala New Year).

by Anura Guruge

This could BE THE year.

It would be the FIRST.

But, it is a bit too early to tell. Not April 14, 2018, in Sri Lanka as yet.

I will keep an eye. But, they have already done and posted a “Songkran 2018” Google Doodle for the Thai equivalent.

So, well into the morning in Sri Lanka so to speak. Avurudu is well underway.

Happy New Year, irrespective.

Happy Sinhala New Year, Avurudu, 2018 To You All & Happy “Vaisakhi” Too.

by Anura Guruge

Painted by me when I was between 6 – 8 years old,
i.e., 1959 to 1961, while still living in Ceylon.
Kind of ‘Mount Lavinia‘ are I would think.

Dawning of the 2018 New Year will be TODAY,
in the U.S. & Canada —

Friday, April 13 at 4:34pm.

[2:04am in Sri Lanka on April 14].

Happy Sinhala New Year 2017.

The 3rd New Year of the Year for I.
But you can never have too many.

Enjoy. Rejoice.

This year, now that I know, I am also including my Sikh friends in this
with their “Vaisakhi“.
