90 MPH, Josh Spaulding, Local Celebrity News Editor, Now Falls Asleep At The Wheel.

by Anura Guruge


He is a local celebrity.

So, he is ABOVE THE LAW.

I am going to get into trouble just for pointing this out.

But, I have KIDS that share the same roads that Mr. Joshua Spaulding drives! Yes, that scares me.

That is ALL I am going to say.

I will let Mr. Joshua Spaulding’s OWN WORDS, IN PRINT, say it all.

Yes, this has bothered me even prior to this.

That Ed had some health issues is no secret. He, himself, let it be known, in the Press, before taking some time-off.

I was delighted to see him today at the Laconia Multicultural Festival. He was seated on the lawn. He looked good. We spoke. I met him, when we were both in Laconia Rotary nearly 20-years ago. He tells me he is still Mayor for another month. He is not seeking office again, though from what I gather he will win, easily, again.

Well, I happened to take this picture, from afar, and it is SO ‘Ed’ that I wanted to share.

National Geographic, March 2018, Slips In A Topless ‘Tribal’ Picture Pinning It On Paul McCartney.

by Anura Guruge


March 2018 ‘National Geographic’.

Front pages — “From the Editor“.

Click to ENLARGE.


Click to ENLARGE. This was the interviews — “From the Editor”.

It was cute, at multiple levels, and brought a wry smile to my lips. Paul McCartney, you dirty dog.

January 1965. I must have seen that too, in Ceylon. I would have been 11, Paul 22.

Intriguing. That was his inspiration for “Lady Madonna“. I just checked the lyrics. See below. Yes, he does have “Lady Madonna, a baby at your breast“. Hhhmmmm.

Did he keep that January 1965 issue this long? Mary McCartney, in the photo credit, is his mother.

You just would have thought Paul would have seen quite a few OTHER breasts. Interesting.

As far as I can tell this is the first Topless in National Geographic since June 2016 — and this one, in the scheme of things, is pretty innocuous. But, I wanted to make sure that I did document it.

Interesting interview. I think I knew that he was a vegetarian.

I also think that I might be able to manage “Meat Free Monday“. Maybe I will start next week.

Michael Wolff’s “Fire And Fury” Gets This “Fake News” Review On Amazon — Sounds Familiar?

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE and read here. Real review on Amazon. I kid you not. Go an check under the 1-star reviews.


I did buy the book yesterday
i.e., Friday, January 5, 2018,
as soon as it was available.

Click to ENLARGE.

I couldn’t wait.

Amazon does NOT have it in paper form!

So downloaded the Kindle.


I read about 12 pages this ‘morning’ — i.e., around 2 am, before I finally went to bed.

Interesting.

Couple of glaring — an editor should have spotted that — typos and the English is sometimes muddled and even incorrect. But most Americans will not notice the latter. {Smile}

I enjoyed what I read so far.

Just a heads up since I get so many hits a day on GoDaddy ‘status’ — especially e-mail.

Today is BAD. So it is not just you.

Not sure why. Know better than to ask.

It works. Had one SEND failure earlier this morning.

Just damn SLOW.

I do my best to like GoDaddy.

But it is becoming increasingly difficult.

I now no longer use their damn File Folder. I used Google Drive — and JUST LOVE IT.

Yet again GoDaddy is giving me grief with my popes-and-papacy blog. This is beyond the pale.

Google Drive Is Rather Compelling. Easy To Use. A Few Missing Features But Very Useable.

I have been using it EXCLUSIVELY this week. Have not even tried to access my old GoDaddy Online Storage! Created folders for all my active books on Google drive and uploaded the files. Pretty compelling. I like the interface. I just found that you can even drag-and-drop! Wow.

I am hooked. Don’t really see a need to pay for online storage if I can get 15GB free (for each Gmail account I have).

A few things that are inexplicably missing or are odd.

Though it has a really fancy preview capability and file description pane, there is no way that Google lets you see the file size! This is a known issue that has been repeatedly discussed. Don’t tell me to sort my size. That is not what I want. I like to see the size of the uploaded file since I tend to have a fairly good idea of how big a file should be. So a quick glance at file size can tell me whether the file uploaded OK — and maybe even that I uploaded the right version. Not a showstopper but rather strange to say the least. Appears that there may be a Machiavellian reason for this. This way you never get to see how Google is calculating your space used!

Another very strange but similar quirk. Doesn’t show the DATE that a file was uploaded. Just the time! I kid you not. Very bizarre.

I also have some concerns about security. But, is any Online Storage offering watertight?

But, for now, I am happy.
