Is ‘Mike Pompeo’, Secretary Of State, Also Turning Orange?

by Anura Guruge

Click to access this ‘ABC News’ coverage. Google … this Sunday … for more.

Click to access ‘Mother Jones’ article.

Yes, I am a news junkie. I watch a lot of news shows.

It was very noticeable on Sunday that Mike Pompeo was distinctly orange.

It was scary.

Is this orange thing contagious? How do you catch it. Scratch that. I don’t want to know!


Will Melania turn orange too, or has she, wisely, stopped physical contact with Agent Orange?

Just didn’t want you to miss this.

Sri Lanka, Alas, Got Its 15-Minutes Of Media Fame In The U.S. Today — 1st Time Many Would Have Heard The Name.

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE. This from CNN. All media outlets featured the story.

Yes, yes, yes. There was the 2004 ‘Christmas’ tsunami — but, Sri Lanka had to share that tragic news with, at a minimum with Thailand & Indonesia.

Not so with the Easter 2019 atrocity. Sri Lanka on its own. TV news started with the Sri Lanka story. This was BIG.

I can assure you that this would have been the first time millions of Americans ever heard of ‘Sri Lanka’. I know that they don’t know.. I live with it every day.

As of now some will remember — alas with the ‘terrorist’ connotation.

Well, I guess we can’t have it all.

I am a news junkie, but a rather observant one. I do NOT get distracted by the latest ‘shiny object’.

It crossed my mind.

What do YOU think?

Did this cross YOUR mind.

Connection? Coincidence?

Just pointing it out.

‘They’ would NOT be short of resources, contacts and means.

Think about it.

Wendy’s, Concord (NH) Was Streaming News & Stock Market Quotes From 6-Days AGO!

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE.

Very strange. Inexplicable, weird and kind of disconcerting.

We were in Concord today and Teischan, given a choice of what and where to eat, quite surprisingly chose Wendy’s — even though we had suggested her usual favorite, Friendly’s.

They have changed the menu and I am not sure whether it is for the best (and I do happen to own Wendy’s shares).

They, as is their practice, had two large TVs. It was streaming news and stock market happenings including stock prices. I had not checked any stock in a few hours but seeing Google down $15 did not seem right. I didn’t get too excited to begin with. I then saw some references to the trade war with China! That seemed wrong. I had heard, in the morning, that we had declared a truce on that. Ahhh!

Then I happened to notice the day and time. May 15. It was May 21. The time was also wrong.

Tried to explain this to an oriental manager. He was not too conversant with the English.

Strange ….

News Podcasts With Joe Biden On Amazon & Google As Of This Week.

by Anura Guruge

Click to access coverage on “The Verge”.

These podcasts supposedly started on Monday, September 25, 2017 — i.e., 3 days ago.

Since I do not have either an Amazon Echo or Google Home, I, alas, have not been able to head dear Joe and his take on the news.

I had hoped that they would make it to YouTube. Appears not yet. Let’s hope that that does happen.

Anura Guruge National Orgasm Day NOD 2017 Facts

Click image to come to the Ann Summers’ page.

Given that it was Ann Summers that came up with the notion of a ‘National Orgasm Day‘ back in 2001, those of us who know the legacy invariably turn to them around this time of the year to see what they have in mind to commemorate the day in style. This year it is this new collection of magnetized, powered sex toys. The video, reminiscent of ‘beautiful agony’ was cute and as ever masterful. So don’t dilly dally, it is going to be upon you in 11-days.

I always think that my ‘Orgasms: 101 Facts & Trivia‘ is a great way to celebrate this important worldwide holyday.

CNN, One Of My Daily Necessities, Came To Be This Day 37-Years Ago; June 1, 1980.

by Anura Guruge

Wow. ‘Just’ 37-years ago? But, as far as I am concerned it has always been around. I didn’t make it to the U.S., this last time around, until February 1985 [the first time having been, but for a year, in Buffalo, 1967 – 1968]. So, CNN was here when I got here. Not sure when I started watching it. I think I was first exposed to it in all the hotels I was staying — given that I was travelling on business three to four days a week during those first 18 months.

I am a news junkie and have been for at least a decade. I watch CNN and MSNBC for at least 90-minutes in total every day. So I am sure glad that we have CNN.

Happy Birthday, CNN. Thanks Ted.

Ceylon/Sri Lanka Independence Day — Events Leading Up To 1948 Handover Of Power.

by Anura Guruge


Click to access YouTube video.

February 4, 2016 will be the 68th anniversary of Ceylon/Sri Lanka Independence — the great day having occurred in 1948.

If we are lucky Google will do a Doodle, for Sri Lanka Independence Day (which Google called ‘National Day‘), as they did in 2015 & 2013 (and MY request).

Around this time I start combing the Web looking for historic new stories or movie clips related to Independence. This is my first contribution this year.
