Kind of funny. I wrote about this ascent & the lack of a picture of Edmund Hillary at the summit just 10-days ago.

I always remember that it was in 1953 since that was the year I was born. But, I was born in September. So, this happened just before I was born.

The key here is that we all now appreciate that this was the 1st CONFIRMED ascent. That is good. We might still get proof that George Mallory, in 1924, beat them to it.

It is also good that more & more places, like Wikipedia, have started listing Sherpa Tenzing Norgay AHEAD of New Zealander, Edmund Hillary. As Hillary himself, albeit quite late in his life, has confirmed Tenzing was LEADING when they reached the summit. Plus, we only have a picture of Tenzing at the summit.

Avid ‘Mount Everest’ Buff For 25-Years But I Never Realized That There Is No Picture Of ‘Hillary’ On Summit!

From “Tenzin’s” 1958 book, which I have also had most of my life.


I am very familiar with this picture. From John Hunt’s book (above).


I also have this book. No pictures of the summit at all, at all! SMILE.

With the iconic photograph, shown at top, you can’t really tell who is under all that protective gear. So, it is easy to kind of think it is Hillary. It is NOT. It is Tenzing. The captions clearly state that. It is just that we tend to ind of forget that.

I was listening to this book (which is outstanding), i.e., Napoleon’s Hemorrhoids: And Other Small Events that Changed History, when this was mentioned, viz., there is NO photograph of Hillary at the summit. Just of Tenzing. I had to come home & check — twice. Wow.

Hillary has explained why there is no photo & it is quite amazing & amusing. Tenzing had never used a camera & ‘the summit of Everest was no place to give him his first lesson’! Classic. A beauty.

We even now know, decades later, that Tenzing leading, so he was the first of the two to step on to the summit. I love this stuff.

Hope you found this interesting.

I Am Very Skeptical Of Biden’s Supposed 10%(+) Lead Over Trump In New Hampshire.

I could be wrong; very wrong. I, as you can see from this map live in a VERY RED part of New Hampshire. But, from what I can see this part has been getting REDDER by the day.

Hillary JUST managed to hold New Hampshire. Her margin was less than 1%.

Obama won in 2012 by 5.8% — but his lead was way down from 4-years earlier.

I would, of course, like Biden to win. Doesn’t matter if he only wins by 1% or even less.

10+% seems HIGH.

Clinton Server: They Found 650,000 e-Mails On Weiner & Huma Abedin Shared Laptop! 650,000 e-mails.

by Anura Guruge


Click here for the October 31, 2016, U.K. “Daily Mail” original.

email65000


650,000 is a BIG number.

Mind boggling when it refers to e-mails downloaded and stored on a shared laptop.

650,000!

That number, I noticed, is not being quoted in the U.S. media (or at least not as yet).

650,000!

IF even 1,000 of these belong to Huma Abedin she is toast.

Hillary Clinton, alas, will be history.

650,000 e-mails.

That is mind boggling. How many e-mails can a person REALISTICALLY deal with in a day? I know that corporate executives get around 200/day and that is about their realistic limit. Did Weiner have a LOT of short e-mails?

650,000! Yikes.

Clinton e-Mail Revelations — Weiner & Huma Sharing A Laptop, Private Server Was Irrelevant, Immaterial.

by Anura Guruge


stupid222


For those of us that are technical and network/e-mail savvy, the current, James Comey initiated flap, has NOTHING to do with Hillary Clinton’s infamous private e-mail server.

It is NOT the server that is at issue here. It is the e-mails downloaded to an insecure laptop shared with a person who does NOT work for the State Department.

Same problem could have happened IF there was NO Clinton private e-mail server.

Huma could have still got classified e-mails on her State Department, “state.gov“, e-mail account.

So to bring up the server here is CRAZY.

redherringThe issue is WHY would Huma SHARE a laptop with her husband. Now it is possible that she has her OWN, password protected userID for that laptop. That is important. IF she did, then this somewhat of a red herring.

I wish the media understood these details and made a better fist of explaining them to the masses.

Latest Hillary Clinton, Weiner & Huma e-Mail Flap — Anybody Who Downloads e-Mails To A PC Is STUPID!

by Anura Guruge


stupid


Huma Abedin has to be STUPID. Very stupid (though I have kind of always had a soft spot for her).

Well that she married that IDIOT, reprobate Anthony (bloody) Weiner, is proof enough that she is not the brightest bulb in the Clinton club.

Downloading e-mails on to a PC or any device is so 1990s! So passée.

Downloading e-mails was something Microsoft made you do with Outlook (Express).

If you still use Microsoft Outlook you are … YES … STUPID.

You read e-mails on the SERVER — the cloud. You do NOT download them — not anymore, not in the last 10 years!

I haven’t downloaded an e-mail since 2004!

Yes, this whole thing is stupid and Huma Abedin has proved to be too stupid to be allowed within 250 miles of the White House — though that possibility is now gone.

How STUPID.

How Did YOU Read Mike Luckovich “Hillary’s World” Cartoon?

by Anura Guruge


hillarysworld

Click to access Mike Luckovich’s July 29, 2016 “Hillary’s World” cartoon at “truthdig.com”


How did YOU ‘read’ (i.e., interpret) this Mike Luckovich’s cartoon
which is, of course, a very clever takeoff of Andrew Wyeth’s iconic “Christina’s World” (1948)?

250px-Christinasworld



Deanna made a point of bringing this cartoon to my attention yesterday.

Kind of personal to her.

Christina Olson lived in Cushing, Maine and the famous (Farm) House in Wyeth’s painting is (still) in Cushing — where Wyeth used to Summer.

Deanna is from Cushing and knew Wyeth.

So ….

Christina always GOT home … though it was a struggle.

Is that WHAT Luckovich MEANT to portray?

That Hillary WILL get to the White House though it might be a struggle?

I am not sure how many others will get this …

So, what do YOU think?

President Obama’s Speech At Hillary’s DNC Convention Reminded Me Why I Knocked On 450+ Houses For Him In 2008.

by Anura Guruge


obamaspeechdnc2016

Click for CNN original. Google for tons of other coverage. Try and watch at least SOME of this magisterial speech.


What a speech.

What a speaker.

What a MAN.

Reminded me why I campaigned for him in both 2008 & 2012.

Wow. WOw. WOW!

So effortlessly magisterial. A pleasant, approachable, often SMILING demeanor THROUGHOUT as is always his style. Such a marked contrast to Trump’s scowling and anger.

He and I have differed majorily over Obamacare. I have called him some choice names. But in the end he is QUITE the President. Amazing human being. We are so privileged.

Savor this speech. Get your teenagers to watch at least a few minutes.

People will talk about this speech in decades to come.
