That was a turn for the books. New Zealand trounced by England at a World Cup — this time in Rugby. New Zealand did NOT look like the team that I had seen in the previous matches.

What was that statistic I heard — New Zealand’s FIRST World Cup loss since 2007! First loss in 19 matches. England last won against them in 2012 (albeit not in a World Cup).

So, this was quite sensational. Quite the match. I watched the (above) highlights TWICE — just to make sure.

Wales go in as FAVORITES.

So, we have a good chance. Fingers crossed.

Who do I support: Wales FIRST, England second. SMILE. At my core I am Welsh. SMILE.

Wales v England Showdown Is Possible At The Rugby World Cup 2019, But Unlikely.

by Anura Guruge




For it to happen now, both England and Wales will have to win their respective semi-finals this weekend. That would mean a England v Wales final. That would be great for us the British, but, alas, I just don’t think it will happen.

Why? The New ZealandAll Blacks‘ — defending Champions from not just the last World Cup, but the one before that too.

They have been awesome. Just magical to watch. While England, obviously, has played well to get to the Semis, I just have a sneaking feeling that the All Blacks will outgun and outrun them come Saturday.

But, we can keep our fingers crossed.

Did The Russians Hack The “America’s Got Talent 2017” Voting For Ukrainian “Light Balance”?

by Anura Guruge





Do NOT get me wrong, in any way. I like the Ukrainian  high-tech “Light Balance” very much. I even gave them a plug, here, a few weeks ago.

They are pretty amazing and their show is truly mesmerizing. You have to hand it to them. Very clever. Very creative. Very high-tech.

I was, however, amazed that they beat-out the U.S. Air Force Academy “In the Stairwell”. Yes, they are NOT as different as “Light Balance” — but for love of apple pie & motherhood, we are talking fresh-faced, all American kids from the U.S. Air Force Academy!

I am a professional cynic, so the thought DID cross my mind as to whether the voting was hacked. Would not have been too difficult to do.

OK. So, that is off my chest.

Now back to “Light Balance”. I am NOT sure that an High Tech at such as this should be allowed to compete against people! With their act I am not sure how much is computer generated. Some of their moves could all be ANIMATION with their suit lights off. I just don’t think it is an apples-to-apples competition, people vs. computers. Think about it.
