IF You Did Not See “America’s Got Talent” ‘Golden Buzzer’ Winner This Week — “Zurcaroh”.

by Anura Guruge



YOU have to watch THIS. You will THANK ME for it.

Pretty amazing. I have over the years seen plenty of acrobatic, aerial stuff, BUT this was still pretty amazing.

I thought they were from Israel. NO. Brazil. Do not ask me how so many of them were able to come over and WHO paid for it.

This was the last act of AGT 2018 week one (i.e., this week (May 29)). Prior to this act there had been nothing that special. But, this!

Enjoy. Be amazed.

Sheer genius. Maybe not the greatest of writings, but very clever plots — that were bound to garner interest and a following.

It is easy to forget that he also wrote: Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang!

He, who liked to live the life of Bond, died at 56, from heart disease. But, he lived the good life.

Prior to 1971 ‘Memorial Day‘ (which was originally known as ‘Decoration Day‘) was always celebrated on ‘May 30’ — irrespective of what day of the week it was. The holiday goes back to the end of the Civil War.

In 1968 Congress, with the ‘Uniform Holidays Bill‘ aimed at creating 3-day weekends, mandated that ‘Memorial Day’ would be on the last Monday of May. As such it can fall anywhere from May 25 to May 31. This year will be the 7th time, since 1971, it has fallen on May 30.

May 26, May 28 and May 31 have already had 7 instances. Falls the least often on the earliest possible day, May 25.
