Yes, it rained during my walk. That was OK. I was dressed for it. So, I got raindrops on leaves as well as flowers. Plus some nice colors. Wanted to share them with YOU. Enjoy. SMILE.

My New ‘Garmin Fenix 6 Solar’ Side-By-Side With My Old ‘Fenix 6 Pro Titanium’.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


The SOLAR is on the RIGHT.


The solar, on the RIGHT on three of these, is a bit chunkier — which I guess was to be expected. Not so much wider, as noticeably taller.

I do NOT like it! The white is STUPID. Ugliest watch I have ever encountered. I am embarrassed to wear it. I kid you not.

I got it because it was TITANIUM & it was the model Garmin was featuring in its writeups. But, it is BUTT UGLY. Yikes. That was a mistake. Why don’t I return it. Because it was basically given to I — & I don’t look a gift horse in the mouth. BUT, if YOU WANT a real, real, real good deal on a hardly used Fenix 6 Solar let me know. SMILE.

So, that is my take. SMILE.

Google Pixel 4 ‘Face Recognition’ Not Much Good With Face Masks; Pixel 5, LUCKILY, Will Go Back To Fingerprint.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.

From: ‘gizchina.com’. Google ‘Pixel 5’ for more.


It is both funny & frustrating trying to CONFIRM my identity to my phone when I am wearing a face mask!

The timing could NOT have been worse for Google. Even they would not have been able to predict that face masks would be in vogue in mid-2020.

Yes, most of the time I can keep my Google 4 ‘unlocked’ due to its proximity to my TRUSTED Garmin Fenix 6 smartwatches.

The problem arises when I try to use ‘SMART PAY’. And ironically that is also related to the COVID-19 pandemic. I would rather not touch credit card readers.

But, the phone, for good reason, needs you to verify that it is indeed you trying to use ‘Smart Pay’. Therein lies the problem.

I have NOT been a fan of ‘face recognition’. It works BUT it always seems finicky. Touch-and-go. I much preferred the fingerprint reader. I will HAVE to get a Pixel 5 just for that. SMILE. Well, I will keep you posted.

I Saw A Fox During My Walk Last Night, 10:55pm.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


He had been following me at a distance.

The powerful LED headlight I wear caught its eyes just about when I was leaving our driveway.

They were VIVID green. The eyes of deer are yellow. This was close to the ground. I thought it was a cat. I saw it cross the road. Looked like a cat.

It then followed I! SMILE.

Saw its eyes again. It was much closer. Got him in my headlight.

Took this picture using the Google Pixel 4’s amazing ‘Night Sight‘.

Been quite the Summer: bears, bobcat, deer & now a fox.

Well, now we know.

Thank YOU, to the ‘Family Steele‘.

That ‘Roger‘ is doing well is great news.

I will no longer, instinctively, slow down as I go by the farm in the hope of seeing ‘Roger’.

I have never been to ‘Charmingfare Farm‘. I now will have to, just to see ol’ ‘Roger’.

Well, not much more to add, so I will just say: “Roger & out“.

Paul is as good a gardner as he is a mechanic — & that says much because he is an exceptionally gifted mechanic. His flowers tell their own tale. He is very dedicated & passionate. He gets up at 4am, every day, to water them. And it shows. He claims that his display, this year, isn’t as good as those of prior years. I disagree. I think they look just fine & dandy. Thank YOU, Paul.

Dr. Guannan Ge, Dartmouth-Hitchcock (Lebanon), The BEST Pain Doctor In New Hampshire?

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE & read here. You can find her at: dartmouth-hitchcock.org.


I think so.

We met with her this morning, in Lebanon. NO. Not for I. For the wife. She had been referred to her.

When I read her bio — above — I just couldn’t believe what I was reading. Sounded true good to be true. The type of doctor I had been hoping to someday find.

Well, she proved to be as GOOD as what she claimed in the bio — if not better.

IMPRESSIVE.

Young, but sure knows her stuff. Confident, self-assured, poised — but very low-key & non-pushy.

Wow. She actually understands PAIN! She knows the key role the brain & nervous system plays when it comes to pain. WOW. A doctor, at last, that is willing to talk about — even diagnose — central pain (now referred to as ‘Central Sensitization’). She was a revelation.

Over the last 14-year we must have seen at least 8 other so called ‘pain specialist’. They were all, in the end, charlatans. All of them put together (& they were all males) did not have her expertise, acumen & touch.

Wow. I was so impressed. (Have you already kind of got that impression that I kind of liked her?)

Well, I do know a bit about ‘pain’. I have written a book about it. SMILE. Yes, I gave her a copy & she was very gracious in thanking me for it.

I am looking forward to working with her. What a JOY.

Yes, she is native Chinese — in that she was born in China & did some of her schooling there. Great credit to China.

I the past I always tried to find Indian doctors. As of now, I am going to start by looking for Chinese doctors!

She (somewhat) restored my faith in DHMC.

The Fine Art On Display At Dartmouth Hitchcock (Lebanon) — July 9, 2020,

I have been visiting Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center (in Lebanon), on a fairly regular basis, for the last 15-years. NO. I have yet to see a doctor, for myself, in all those years — & probably upwards 50 visits. Well for a start Teischan was born there (in 2006). That alone necessitated quite a few trips.

I always enjoy visiting DMHC. It is like going to a fancy country club than a hospital. The way they have cleverly arranged it, you never see any sick folk per se. Plus they have all this great artwork & often, even folks playing the many grand pianos scattered around the place.

Today was no exception. Lot of nice art. I wanted to share them with YOU. Enjoy. SMILE.
