Joe Biden Gave Boris Johnson A Bespoke ‘Bilenky’ Bike — It Is A Philadelphia-Based Company.

It is a Philadelphia company & Joe, born in Pennsylvania, is partial to all things from that State. It appears that he & Jill Biden ride ‘Bilenky’ bikes. So, that was the hook. But, it wasn’t any old bike off-the-rack. It was bespoke. They probably even got all the relevant measurements for Boris.

I am kind of surprised it wasn’t electric. Boris is getting up there & I am sure would appreciate some assistance.

But, just in case you were wondering. A Bilenky Bike.

I Was Totally Clueless As To How Pervasive & Problematic ‘Puppy Mills’ Have Become In ‘Amish’ PA & OH.

by Anura Guruge

Of course I had heard of ‘puppy mills’ & knew of their existence. But, until a few days ago I had NO IDEA how widespread they were & what a serious problem they represent.


Yes, with the sad passing of ‘Maya’ we were on the market for a new dog. Though we, i.e., the adults, wanted to wait a few weeks (i.e., at least till February), not so with the kids — especially the 14-year old.

‘Maya’ was our BIG dog & I wanted another BIG dog. I like BIG dogs & have had BIG dogs, without break, for the last 30+ years.

We, or at least the 14-year old & I, talked ourselves out of another ‘Golden‘. We had had enough Goldens over the years. Wanted something different.

So, we started looking at ‘Bernese Mountain Dogs‘, “St. Bernard’s” & ‘Newfoundlands‘.

All the puppies we could find were in Pennsylvania or Ohio. That is when we started doing some research.


We nearly got burned yesterday. A lady I spoke to, in PA, was actually in the ‘Horrible Hundred’ list! YIKES.

As I keep of telling you, I always Google people before I start dealing with them. BINGO.

So, just giving you a heads up.


It has become a business. Dogs as livestock & some will argue that that is what they are.

But, I just wanted to give YOU a head’s up.

US Postal Service ‘Certified Mail’ Is Beyond A Joke — 12-Days To Deliver A Letter N.H. To Pennsylvania!

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE.

Click to ENLARGE and be AMAZED.

12-days to deliver a Certified letter between New Hampshire and Pennsylvania — a total distance of about 370-miles.

The problem here was that I sent it Certified.

IF I had sent it ‘normal’ it would have got there in 3-days.

The guy at the Post Office promised 3-day. He never said 12-days.

I used to use Certified quite a bit. Haven’t in a longtime. Something has changed, and not for the better.

Good job this was not a super-urgent letter. But, I am NOT amused.

So, you have been warned.

Innocent Catholic Priest Attacked In Indiana Following Pennsylvania Sex Abuse Report.

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE and read here. From the U.K. “Daily Mail” from August 21, 2018.

This is getting out-of-hand and unacceptable. Yesterday vandalism and then this. You cannot pin this on all Catholic priests and you definitely cannot go around attacking poor, innocent priests at random.

Yes, people are frustrated and angry, BUT things have to be done non-violently, through the proper channels and without any crimes being committed, e.g., vandalism.

I would definitely like to see more peaceful protests in churches. They, the Church, must understand that enough is enough. This has gone too, too far.

Maybe the pope, acting dumber than usual, will start paying some attention. Going to Ireland, this weekend, will focus his now increasingly addled mind.

Pennsylvania Catholic Sex Abuse Crisis — IF You Want The Full Grand Jury Report.

This is beyond shocking — despite us all having had nearly 20-years to get inured to this pedohilia by Catholic clerics. This is sickening. This is the ONE ASPECT of the Vatican and the current popes that I find incredibly unpleasant and makes me very mad.

Just can’t understand HOW people let the churches, The Church, prelates, the Vatican and the Pope get away with it.

Irony of ironies: two of the popes implicated are NOW SAINTS! Can you really be a Saint if you condoned child sex abuse? Doesn’t that make a joke of what a Saint is supposed to be? Where were the Saints when it came to protecting these innocent, little children?

Did You See This AR-15 Lunacy From A Pennsylvania Church, Run By Another ‘Moon’ — Creepy!

by Anura Guruge

From the U.K. “Daily Mail“.

Click here to access article with LOTS more disturbing pictures.

This is frigging disturbing and creepy. What is wrong with these people.

This comes across as another Moonie cult. Some of these people. Talk about penile envy.

I just don’t know. I despair.

This on the same day that “Dick’s Sporting Goods” showed that you always have the option of doing the right thing.

Just wanted to make sure that YOU saw this in case, unlike I, you do NOT read the U.K. “Daily Mail” (online) a FEW times a day.

Got My Garmin Vivoactive 3 (Gunmetal), Discounted & Early — But Was An ABSOLUTE PAIN To Pair With My Android 7.0 Tablet!

by Anura Guruge

So, I finally got IT — after 38-days of not having a Garmin Vivoactive on my wrist.

I, of course, ordered it through Amazon BUT did not get one fulfilled by Amazon — because their promised delivery was for this coming Monday, November 20, 2017.

I had been keeping an eye on these ‘small’ Garmin distributors who kept on claiming they could get me a Gunmetal model earlier. The latest to do so was ‘Heart Rate Monitors USA‘ — a small 14-person company in Pennsylvania.

On Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2017, having watched their listing for 24-hours, I called them up. Spoke to a lady called ‘Amy’. She seemed genuine enough and she inspired confidence. So, I placed an order — WITHOUT cancelling my prior order which was NOT due to ship till today.

Heart Rate Monitors USA shipped out the unit — to UPS — within 4 hours. Yes, I was monitoring (every couple of hours). {Smile}

I got it yesterday, Thursday, November 16, 2017 — Beaujolais Nouveau Day.

I also got it for $310 — rather than the $330 I was being charged by Amazon.

I like it. Nice and light and looks OK.

But, the JOY of getting it was MARRED by the horrendous problems I had trying to PAIR IT with my 6-month old, ASUS ZenPad 10.1″ running Android 7.0. Now I had had my old Garmin Vivoactive HR paired with this tablet (albeit with erratic syncing) and had, after 9 or 10 attempts, managed to pair my short lived Garmin Forerunner 235 with it.

Click to ENLARGE.

With the Vivoactive 3 I just could NOT get it to PAIR. I would type in the 6-digit pairing code and something would go WRONG or NOTHING would happen.

Called up Garmin support and was with them for nearly 50 minutes. They admitted that they have NEVER tested pairings with Tablets. Just phones. Which is why they call it ‘Pair With Phone’.

It paired, first time, with an old ASUS phone. I do not have a working smartphone. I prefer a 10″ tablet.

I was SO DISGUSTED I set out to return it! Even reboxed it — with a printed return label.

Then I relented. I decided to get a phone — most likely a Google Pixel XL, since my main requirement is a decent camera to use at events (e.g., concerts). So, I started looking for phones.

Also read some posts about Bluetooth. Once suggested STOPPING the Bluetooth service on Android and starting it again. Did that around midnight. Then, two attempts later it PAIRED!

I know I spent close to 2.25 hours trying to get it to pair — and MAYBE 22 (or more) attempts.

That is NOT right.

So, that spoiled the whole experience. I am still recovering!

Jaguar XJ8, 2001, 59K For Sale In “Melvin Village”, N.H. For $7,500 — A Good Deal!

by Anura Guruge

Taken with a Fujifilm X-E2s.

Click pictures to ENLARGE.

Saw it on the way to “Castle in the Clouds” this morning, to go horseback riding with “Riding in the Clouds“.

I stopped on the way back. It could be the TWIN of the XJ8 I own.

Mine is a 2002 and now has 63K on the clock. It had $57K when I bought it, in Pennsylvania, last May.

Asking $7,500. I would suspect you could get it for $7,000. Not a bad price. I am, however, NOT tempted. I can afford it … SMILE.

But not sure I want two identical XJ8s right now. One would have to be in storage and that is waste.

They had run out of business cards. So the KINDLY Mr. Sargent, who runs the place, turned around and said “take a picture of my back”. I did.

So call … and ask for Mr. Sargent and say that the “Brown Guy” sent you. SMILE.

I can’t tell you how good it feels to own and drive a XJ8 like that. Not as good as sex but it sure comes close. SMILE.
