This Counsel About ‘Making Others Smile’ Was Totally Wasted On I; I Have Practised This For 33-Years.

I am a living contradiction and I like living as such.

I have been diagnosed, by psychologists as an ‘off-the-scale’ extrovert. That is why I, in my storied life, managed to snag so many plumb sales/marketing jobs. SMILE. But, I am also, by choice, a recluse! I can go for five, six or more days without ‘going out’. No, I am never housebound. I go out and walk/run for at least 90-minutes a day, but I do not need to go shopping, eating, drinking or anything else.

But, when I go out, I make sure that I make people SMILE. That I make them feel warm inside. I have done that, each and every time I have gone out, for 33-years.

Something about “bringing sunshine into other people’s life“.

It is easy for I. People just smile when they see my face. They have all my life. I kid you not. I think they feel sorry for them.

Today, I know for a FACT, that I made at least TWO people, one male, one female, smile.

Oh, I also hand out chocolates. That really makes people SMILE.

But, I can also SMILE.

I SMILE a lot. I am happy most of the time.

I also know how to smile. SMILE.

Well, this sign was at our orthodontists. Kind of self-serving. But, it amused I.

Easter 2018 Egg Hunt At The Guruge Household.

by Anura Guruge

She is now 12 and still insists that we do an egg hunt for her.
Devanee is too old.
She wanted it outside this year — in the snow. First time we have
done it outside in a number of years.
She enjoyed it so much she wanted to do it AGAIN;
12 eggs the first time (to match her age), and 6 the 2nd time.

This has been an annual tradition for the last 10,
if not 11 years. It is the highlight of her Easter

— though the chocolates are close behind.

Just What America NEEDS Right Now — Order Chocolates At The Press Of A Button.

by Anura Guruge


Nothing helps beat stress like indulging in some good chocolates.

And in these stressful days, never run short of chocolates.

Just PRESS the AmazonDASH” button for chocolates.

Brilliant. I am so proud of Amazon and so glad that I am a (long term) AMZN shareholder.

Not for I though. I haven’t eaten anything chocolate, other than chocolate flavored yogurts, in 4 years.

But, I do try to maintain a stash of chocolates for others and for gifts. But, I am pretty good at keeping this stash replenished. So, I don’t think I will be needing this DASH button — not that I have any of DASH buttons. Easy enough for me to order online.


It has Wi-Fi inside. Wi-Fi setup using an Android or iOS APP. Neat.


Amazon’s explanation as to how it works. It is there with each DASH button. Click to ENLARGE and study here.
