THE Queen Wishing You A ‘Happy New Year’ & Welcoming The Newly Independent VERY GREAT Britain.

by Anura Guruge


I just happened to take this picture last night.

This is NOT her usual place. I had placed her there, for safety, when the Christmas decorations were being put up — INSIDE the house.

She normally resides in our Bay/Garden kitchen window, surrounded by plants, & getting plenty of sunlight. But, Christmas stuff went in that window & she was getting pushed around. That would never do. So, I moved her. She will go back to her pride of place after January 6, 2021.

I Got Myself A Google ‘Pixel 5’ To Replace My 13-Month Old ‘Pixel 4’ & I Continue Using ‘Google Fi’ As My Carrier.

by Anura Guruge



First & so far ONLY Picture With My Google Pixel 5.
Straight out of my ‘office’ window.


Though I still take as many pictures as ever, & post at least 7-a-day, I have basically stopped using a dedicated camera — though I still have two ‘new’ Panasonics.

So, if my phone has become my camera THEN I have to stay on top of camera technology. While I appreciate that the Pixel 5 did NOT offer much of an upgrade re. the camera, it is still new camera hardware & software. Plus, Google gives me a 24-month, 0% APR deal.

PLUS, I wanted to go back to a fingerprint reader!

2020 was a REAL bad year to have ‘face recognition‘! Why? Masks!

After saying that setting up the fingerprint reader was one of the few hiccups with the new phone. I finally managed but it took quite a few tries.

I also had trouble downloading the ‘Google Fi‘ APP from the ‘Google Play Store’. Other than that, it was a breeze.

Impressed.

So far, so good.

Actually bought TWO Pixel 5s — one for one of my daughters too.

We The Brits, Always GREAT, Are Truly FREE Again, Jan. 1, 2021 — I Waited A Very Long Time For This.

THE Referendum, the 2nd Referendum, was in 2016. That was 4 years ago.

YES, we separated from the EU on January 1, 2020 (Brussels time) — BUT the final divorce decree was NOT until today.

But, now it is all done & dusted.

23:00 (11:00 pm) London time (mid-night in Brussels, Belgium) Brexit becomes totally & irrevocably FINAL. This is IT.

After nearly fifty years we are FINALLY FREE again.

The last 4-years, post the referendum, was torturous.

So much drama, so much duplicity, so much incompetence, so much heartache, so much intrigue.

But that is all in the past.

IT IS DONE.

BREXIT IS REAL.

We the Brits, Always GREAT, are totally FREE Again.

I am so, so happy & relieved.

What a great day.
