I Had My Knee Surgery, Which Was Miraculous, A Year Ago.

by Anura Guruge

These pictures from a year ago & the screenshot below,
from today,
tell you all that needs to be told.

The picture above is a testament to my recovery. I never realized that I had walked that far. Nearly 2,000 miles.

Knee feels great. I feel great.

Dr. Charles Blitzer who performed my surgery was NOT a surgeon. He was MAGICIAN.

I sent him an e-mail today and thanked him, profusely. He responded and thanked me for my kind words.

IF you ever need knee surgery (and I hope you never do), make sure it turns out like mine.

Best thing that happened to me in YEARS!

I had my quadriceps tendon repair surgery,
at ‘
Frisbie Memorial Hospital‘ —
performed by Dr. Charles Blitzer
of ‘Seacoast Orthopedics
on Thursday, March 7, 2019.

There was no pain to talk about
— throughout, from surgery to now.

Can YOU Really Be Sure That Coronavirus (COVID-19) Test Results Are TRUE?

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE. Look at top. What I got when I search Google News.

IF you are news junkie as I am, you would have heard that the first batch of Coronavirus test kits sent to Seattle — to that infected Nursing Care facility — were defective.

You did KNOW that … right?

Those tests claimed ‘negative’ though that was NOT the case.

Yes, I am a professional cynic.

I have previously wondered whether hospitals/labs really test your blood! They can just make up numbers. Come on. This is the U.S. of A.

So, I am not 100% convinced that the Coronavirus test kits are all totally kosher.

Think about it. THINK.

You get a negative result, they tell you it is just a bad case of the normal flu. What next ….

The Next Pope: Angelo Scola (78) Could Be The ‘Hail Mary’ Pick If All Else Fails In 2020.

Guruge 2020 Papabili Series — #IV

Angelo Scola, the eternal ‘bridesmaid’ (so to speak), will turn 79 in November, 2020. That would be another psychological strike against him though we have had two 79-year olds elected as pope, albeit both in the 17th-century.

At ’78’ he can claim ‘parity’ with (his good friend) Benedict XVI — though Benedict XVI was elected just 3-days after he turned 78.

Age, ironically, is the biggest strike against him. 78 is pushing it. If elected before he turns 79 he will be the 4th (possibly 3rd) oldest to be elected (albeit as of 1400).

Yes, there is, as is now the case with nearly all Italian cardinals, a whiff of scandal attached to him. He is supposed to have Mafia connections! Sacré bleu. He is Italian. What do you expect? I don’t think the electors will worry about that. It could even be an advantage. An Italian pope with Mafia connections.

He was papabile in BOTH 2005 & 2013. In 2013 he was extremely papabile. He was my #4 pick.

Well, in 2013, the extremely influential & well-connected ‘Italian Conference of Bishops’ issued a Press Release congratulating Scola as soon as they saw the white smoke above the Sistine! They were so sure that Scola would be the next pope.

Scola, in 2020, prior to November, will be the pope of last resort. If all other avenues does not lead to the 2/3rd majority.

Yes, he will be a caretaker a pope — hopefully for 4- to 5-years.

I think Ouellet is more papabile than Scola. No doubt. But, if Ouellet fails to get the votes, the electors might despair and decided to just go with a known, trusted entity, Scola.
