Trump’s European Travel Ban, With The U.K. LOOPHOLE, Is Beyond Inane.

by Anura Guruge



As somebody who used to fly from the U.S. to the U.K. to get his haircut, to watch 1-day of cricket or see my dentist, I am no stranger to flying across the Pond.

This 30-day European travel ban, if it really comes into play, will be hugely disruptive.

But, the U.K. exemption MAKES IT A JOKE!

Did Trump MEAN to say that only us British (the crème de la crème) will be allowed? So flights from the U.K. have to be 100% Brits? Is that what he meant?

But, the Brits have COVID-19 too!

So, why let them come?

Insane.

Never heard anything this crazy from a U.S. President.

‘Youth’ (2015) Movie With Michael Caine & Jane Fonda — Different, Strange But Compelling In Its Own Way.

Click image to access ‘IMDb.com’ listing for this 2015 movie.


It was the HBO featured presentation a couple of Saturday’s ago. So, I DVRed it and we watched it the last couple of nights.

Not difficult to watch. If nothing else there are some SUMPTUOUS shots of Swiss landscape (reminiscent of the “Sound of Music“) plus a fair amount of pretty impressive gratuitous full-frontal European-style nudity (pubes and all) thrown in.

Interesting story. Good actors and actresses. Had NO IDEA that that was supposed to be Diego Maradona — and I had no idea that his left-handedness was that famous. Just the 20 second sequence of him (meaning the ACTOR) playing ‘kick-ball’ is worth watching.

The Roly Serrano character. The “kick-ball” sequence in middle. I am NOW paranoid. At the rate I am going will I end up as BIG as this? This was sobering. I must modify my diet. And I can’t even at my current weight play “kick-ball”! Click to ENLARGE if he isn’t already BIG enough.

Not difficult to watch. Try and catch it IF you can.

I go topless most of the Summer and well into the fall. Having grown up in Europe and still being very European (or at least British) at heart I have no problems, whatsoever, with men or women going topless. As far as I am concerned, that Laconia c. 2000, ‘banned’ female flashing during ‘Bike Week’ is very un-American and discriminatory. Given all the man boobs freely on show, I would much prefer to see more delicate and delectable offerings. Going to topless beaches in Europe is just part and parcel of living there. Never had any problems when whoever I was with went topless. As I had been told ‘it is much less conspicuous to be topless than to be covered‘! Plus, as I had discovered, to my cost, they all look the same after the first ten thousand. Cracked me up the first time I went to Waikiki Beach in Hawaii in 1985. All these women going to so, so much trouble to expose as much as they could without going topless. It was hilarious. Just go topless.

Since I stoutly defended my future Queen, Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, during the childish topless flap, I get quite a number of hits when folks are searching the Web for ‘topless’ references.

Today I noticed a new variation that immediately piqued my interest. Folks were falling over themselves doing searches for ‘topless in NH‘. I, being the season cynic I am, knew at once that this was NOT what it appeared to be. Though I would embrace it gladly, I know NH way too well (and I am a Granite State Ambassador (GSA)) to appreciate that it is more than unlikely that we would, in my lifetime, see ladies cavorting topless on Gilford beach. But, I was curios. As soon as I saw that the event was being held in Rumney, the ‘redneck‘ capital of NH, where dentist go to daydream of the untold riches they could have if they could just treat 5% of the residents, the game was up.

Yes, it is topless, and I hope that as with Bike Week there will at least be some surreptitious flashing, if not topless in topless. Here, this gives the game away. Enjoy.
