Today, May 20, Is “National Streaming Day” 2016 (Per Roku).

by Anura Guruge

Since I am a HUGE fan of Roku I am HAPPY to celebrate “National Streaming Day 2016” with them and you.

If nothing else I plan to watch Day 2 highlights of the England vs. Sri Lanka 1st Test, from Headingley (Leeds), on “One Sports“, via my Roku tonight. I watched Day 1 highlights last night — thanks to Roku.

Did YOU know that ‘roku’ means six (6) in Japanese?

It was the founder’s sixth attempt! Cool. He was on CNBC this morning — which is how I heard about this.

New Hampshire 2016 Democratic Primary: 6 Of the 8 Superdelagtes Already Pledged To Hillary Clinton.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. 6 Superdelegates, New Hampshire luminaries, already pledged to Hillary Clinton. 6 of the 8 Superdelegates. Possible that the other two are also for Hillary. From: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Democratic_Party_superdelegates,_2016


Delegate count post Iowa caucus 2016 by MSNBC. Hillary = 30, Bernie = 21. Click to ENLARGE. From: nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election


CNN count that factors in ALL ALREADY pledged Superdelegates. Click to ENLARGE.  Bernie has 8.2% of the number of delegates that Hillary has. From: cnn.com/election/primaries/parties/democrat


The AP equivalent of the CNN numbers shown above. Click to ENLARGE. The ratio is still the same. Click to ENLARGE. Google “democratic primary delegate” to get LATEST version of this from AP via Google.

Why the Bernie Sanders’ crowd REFUSES to acknowledge these numbers is a mystery to I. Yes, we had similar in 2008 with Obama and Hillary, BUT Obama had a huge lead, nationwide — something Bernie does NOT have and will not have. Sanders cannot, given the proportional distribution of the ‘normal’ delegates, hope to overcome this chasm.

On Amazon today, ‘Black Friday’ 2015. Click to access Amazon listing.

I got this e-mail from NH PBS this morning. I have had it before.
So their price is $90 more — BUT I understand and appreciate that that INCLUDES PBS Sponsorship.

Well I do NOT have to make up my mind today, ‘Black Friday‘.
I know that the two girls (but NOT Deanna) will insist that $30 is WELL WORTH it even if they get to see
Season 6 1 day early! So I will have to see.

Just a heads up in case you were also interested.

I got this begging e-mail this morning. I get such e-mails from Opus Bono Sacerdotii on a fairly regular basis. I used to get very fancy, expensive looking mailers — yes, of course, asking for money — in the mail, but they have stopped given I never responded to them. Have a read. Two of the Catholic priests in dire straights are supposedly such because of medical conditions — and nothing else (such as molesting kids). So the Catholic, the Catholic Church and the Pope just abandons them when they have back surgery or arthritis. I though Catholic priests in every sense were meant to be MARRIED to the Church. So what happened to ‘in sickness and in health’?

Is this REAL?

So what is YOUR take? I do NOT get it. I did NOT think the Catholic Church just abandoned priest.

OK. I do know that this group does help Catholic priests implicated in sex abuse and other sex crimes. Two things on that. Of late, on the issue of forgiving Catholic women who have abortions scores of Catholics have been shouting at me that forgiveness is at the CORE of their belief. So why doesn’t the Pope, the Catholics and the Church just forgive these ‘accused’ and take care of them? They were or still are Catholic priests? In this e-mail they are ALL Fathers, albeit with very generic names. So they must be priests. That is my second point. If they are being called ‘Father’ they should be a priest. If they are a bona fide priest it is incumbent on the Pope to take care of them. That is my take. IF they are not priest they should masquerade as priests.

P1020494resizedWe typically have two Loons at our end of the lake.

Two years ago we had a nest but the eggs did not hatch.

Last year I think we saw three Loons together, often.

This is the most we have seen on Halfmoon.

I have seen a picture of 37 Loons on Meredith Bay, Winnepesaukee taken from what was my old house on Mile Point.

But, Halfmoon is not the BIG Lake.

Devanee first thought they were ducks. They never came close to the beach. In past years they have come very close to swimmers and to me when I was on my Standup Paddle Board. These stayed well towards the middle.

We didn’t have a camera with us. So I had to dash back to the house, in the van, in my wet swimming trunks (given that I had gone swimming), to get the camera. The Loons had swum further out. But, Devanee kept track where they were.

The rest was the amazing 20x zoom on Deanna’s Panasonic Lumix. It is pretty amazing.

We will have to keep an eye on this group. I might even drop a line to the Loon Society. I have corresponded with them in the past.
