This is a topic very dear to my heart as you can see from my post from 2013.

It totally baffles me that more people do not think about this. I have never understood WHY people want to be buried, cremated or fed to the vultures. To I, donating your body to science makes so much more sense.

I haven’t as yet read the entire article. Just started. Has some ‘interesting’ photos. Does NOT bother me. What they do to my dead body after I am dead worries me none. Not that I will feel anything or know about it.

I am going to try and contact the folks that they talk about in this article. I have no problems with them slicing and dicing my dead body. Anything that helps.

Please think about this. It is painless. That I can promise you.

Thank YOU.

Time To THINK About Your ‘Full Year’ Resolution For 2019 — And What Better Than ‘Think A Day’.

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE.

How many New Year resolutions have YOU given up on? Have you ever thought about that.

Calling it a ‘New Year resolution‘ is a bad start. Think of it as a ‘Full Year resolution‘. You want to stick to it all year and make it a part of your life.

I have said this before and I will unashamedly say it again. When it comes to resolutions only one — and one alone — matters and makes sense, And that is the resolution that you are going to gift yourself the privilege of THINKING.

You are what you think; thinking is what you are.

THINK A Day 2019.

Gift yourself that — A THINK A Day 2019.

Think about it.

The more you THINK about it the more you will see the benefits and joy.

The Joy of Thinking.

“Mary Poppins Returns” Movie (2018) — OUTSTANDING; Destined To Be A Disney Classic.

by Anura Guruge


Uplifting in every way, heartwarming and non-stop, sheer entertainment.

Pantomimish in the nicest possible way. Just, good ol’ fashioned fun — a rollicking musical.

As it was concluding it crossed my mind that this movie deserved applause, and sure enough as it ended the fairly decent crowd (for a weekday matinee) burst into applause! I can’t remember the last time I experienced that. Maybe when the ‘Lion King’ came out 20+ years ago. That alone tells you all that you need to know as to how good this movie is. The audience applauded.

I have seen “Mary Poppins” in Broadway and paid big bucks for the privilege. This movie was as engaging as the live play — and that is saying something.

Disney pulled out all the stops and obviously spent lavishly in its production. I had to look it up on IMDb.com. They believe the budget was $130 million. That is a fair chunk of money. Also appears that they have already grossed a quarter of that back and it has only been out for a week. As a Disney shareholder I am HAPPY.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” was a total DUD. This was the opposite. Outright winner. Brilliant. Destined to become a Disney Classic. People will be talking about this for decades.

Definitely recommend it. Must see. You will enjoy it. Kids will LOVE it. Disney got it spot-on.

Bravo. You will leave the theater with a big, silly grin on your face.
