New $500 ‘Suunto 7’, With GPS, HR, Maps, OLED Display, Music, Pay etc., Is A Definite Competitor To The Garmin Fenix 6.
But, it does have a compelling OLED display and runs ‘Wear OS‘ by Google. With Google’s acquisition of Fitbit, Google is going to become a key figure in the smartwatch sector and with that the significance of ‘Wear OS’ will be on the rise.
If you are in the market for a semi-high-end smartwatch you should definitely look at this Suunto 7. They have been around for awhile and are know to make very competitive watches.

This is quite funny. Just 2-weeks ago I did this post showing that the ‘Tetley Tea’ 2lbs Loose Tea box had instructions for brewing tea using a TEA BAG rather than the loose leaf black tea contained in the box.
Well, wrong instructions or not, there was nothing wrong with the tea. Actually quite decent tea, especially for the price. I liked the tea. So, I ordered another box. As you can see they changed the packaging and now they got the instructions right. I am happy.
I am, as of last week, brewing my loose tea using this MAGICAL ‘Hiware’ $22 teapot. As you can see from my Amazon review I think it is pretty close to perfect.
My review of this ‘Hiware’ teapot.
Given the amount of cricket I watch, I have seen a lot of teams — and the recent West Indies team readily comes to mind — play horribly. But, the South African performance against Australia in the 1st T20 was beyond comprehension. It was an absolute, bloody abortion. Jesus wept. I nearly did too.
Yes, there is definite Munda Logic — i.e., African thought process, or, in this instance, to be precise, lack of thought process all together. I think the world of Quinton de Kock. But, as captain he is demonstrating what used to be joked about him. He is NO intellectual. He seems utterly lost as captain.
The dropped bloody catches. I have never seen anything like that?
I don’t believe in that mumbo jumbo, but many of them do and is it possible that they think that they are under a Voodoo spell. Sire played like they were under a dark cloud.
Yes, then there is the possibility of CORRUPTION and match-fixing!
What is going on right now is NOT right. Something is very, very WRONG.
I am very upset. I like this team, BUT not when they play like this — like a bunch of teenage girls all having their monthlies at the same time.
‘Tecsun PL118’ Pocket, FM-Radio — The BEST $13 Dollar Radio, Actually BEST $13 You Can Spend On Anything.
As I explained in this post, last week, for the last 10-months I have started listening to the radio during my 2-hours a day of walking/light jogging. Helps me deal with the time. I just listen to local FM stations — NHPR/NPR (on 89.1 or 90.1) and music. Nothing too esoteric. Now that the BBC doesn’t transmit on SW, I have no use, whatsoever, for SW.
I had bought a fake ‘Grundig’ from ‘Eton Corp.’ to meet my needs. It was a decent radio. Good reception. Good sound. But, it was big, heavy and bulky. I could carry it around but it felt like lugging a brick. Then I found this on Amazon. $13? I pay that much for exotic drinks at Chinese restaurants. I could afford $13. So, I got one.
Well, you can see my review. I was blown away and I am not the only one raving. It is not fancy. Just FM and basically manual tuning — albeit with the radio auto-locating all the available stations. The stereo sound with earbuds is beyond amazing.
If you are in the market for a great FM radio, check this out. You will not be dissapointed.

10 hours and 48 minutes of Daylight.
IF you live in New Hampshire I hope (I really do) that this has NOT escaped you.
It is so obvious and, moreover, WONDERFUL.
It is still light at 5:30 in the evening. Heaven!
I love it. I am a Sun Worshipper as my TAN testifies.
It will keep on getting better until that DREADED, horrible day in June when winter turns the corner!
