You Won’t Believe The ‘Rude’ Names Of The ‘Hot Sauces’ Available On Amazon.

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE. I blurred out one word since there are words that I refuse to use. SMILE. My blog, my standards. SMILE.

A picture for the first bottle shown above (yes, with the first word blurred) turned up on my Facebook timeline. It intrigued me because I have been helping a good friend that just bought a hot sauce company. We have been playing around with provocative names BUT I could never be this crude. I thought it was a joke. But, to make sure did a quick Google. Wow. It is real. Made in Australia which would explain the name. But, here was the kicker. It was available from Amazon. Here is the link. I kid you not.

Then, as is Amazon’s wont, they showed me other recommendations. That is where I found these. Had to share them with you. What do YOU think?

What It Takes To Average 29,500 STEPS In A Week.

by Anura Guruge

This Is NOT I!

A friend.
Huge Garmin fan & fitness fanatic.

He has a Garmin Forerunner 945.

He sent this to my last night. He is on vacation — on an island off North Carolina. He obviously is doing a LOT of walking.

What got me was the ‘Average Daily’ — 29,542 steps. WOW.

The most steps I have walked in a day, in the last few years, is 26,000.

He walked 42,000 steps yesterday.

I average less than HALF this: 13,300 steps.

He is quite a bit younger than me and, obviously, willing to spend more hours a day on fitness. Good for him.

Thanks to him I have INCREASED my morning walk to 4+ miles a day. So, that is progress.

Click picture to ENLARGE.

The top one is from August 7, 2019 when hiked down to the ‘Nay Aug‘ gorge in Scranton, PA.

The other two were in Boston, from this past Monday, August 26, 2019, when we went to see the ‘Downton Abbey — The Exhibition‘. The bottom two, as must be obvious, taken ‘My Way‘.

Just a record for those that complain that I take all these pictures but rarely post any of myself.

50 posts in the “Taking Selfies My Way” series.

‘Encore Boston’ Casino, ‘The Buffet’ Is Adults Only!

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE and read.

I kid you not. This is way too serious a topic to joke about.

I actually called them to make sure that it wasn’t a mistake on their Web. It wasn’t, but the lady I spoke to admitted that it was not the cleverest thing they had done.


Because they put ‘The Buffet’ in the middle of the casino area. You can’t get it to it without having to walk through the casino.

We have been (and stayed at) plenty of casinos — Las Vegas, Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods. We have always gone to buffets with the kids. That is part of the magic of going to or staying at a casino. Good food at the casino for a reasonable price.

Not so at the Encore Boston. I am totally disgusted.

Yes, they have other restaurants that permit kids, but kids prefer a buffet.

Shame on YOU, Encore. What were you thinking.

This is why I am so glad I never did drugs.

Yes, we were going to go for dinner yesterday after the ‘Downton Abbey — The Exhibition’. Lucky that I checked on the Web.
