It takes a LOT to impress me when it comes to ‘gadgets’.

But, I have to say that this 5 handset Panasonic has blown me away. I don’t want to jinx myself but all I can say right now about this system, which I got for $90 from Amazon (on a special deal last week), is WOW, WOW, WOW!

To get me to say 3 WOWs for a phone system takes some doing — especially as this Panasonic system is but a replacement for a 2007 Panasonic system with 4 handsets. So it wasn’t like I wasn’t used to Panasonic phones.

But, the difference between this system (2011 technology) and my old 2007 system (probably 2005 technology) is like chalk and cheese.

Right now my only regret is that I didn’t get the even newer KXTG7875S! That is Amazon’s fault. They didn’t show me that as an option — at the time. They showed me the TG7645M, on a 3 phone comparison, as THE BEST.

Compared to the garbage VTech CS6429-4 this looks and feels like an iPad.

The Link-to-Cell worked fine. I was impressed and gratified.

Have it all hooked up via the Obi110 Voice Service Bridge. So we now have a pretty complicated but interconnected phone system. I will draw a network diagram soon.

For now, I am very happy. I hope I will continue to be so.

I could NOT believe my years.

As is my wont, I was listening to the TV while doing my ablutions — in this case putting in my contacts. I was sure I had misheard it.

So, I went up to the TV and since it is connected to a DVR rewound it.

Listened to it. Thought I again misheard. Replayed it.

I was shocked.

Valentina Tereshkova beat her by a FULL 20 years!

Well I do know my early space history — because as a barefoot, scrawny kid in shorts, growing up in Ceylon I was totally captivated by the space race. Though I was 9  and she was 26, I had a crush on her!

New Hampshire Health Plan Intends To Bill Us For January 2014 EVEN THOUGH They Sent Us Cancellation Notices!

NHhealthplan


New Hampshire Health Plan sent all of us CANCELLATION letters saying that our policies will be AUTOMATICALLY CANCELLED
as of Dec. 31, 2013 because of Obamacare.

You know the story. Remember Obama LIED.

I did, of course, do a POST on it because I do get my insurance from them


As soon as I saw damn Obama’s lips flapping last week about how he was going to permit Insurance companies to extend cancelled policies for another year, Obamacare be damned, I immediately felt a very sharp pain in my physically virgin derrière. I knew I was going to get SHAFTED.

I was right. I had told Deanna that this would happen.

Earlier this week I heard the dreaded new on NHPR.

Yesterday, I called them up.

They were so giddy with happiness that they could hardly talk.

They are going to automatically debit our bank accounts for the January 2014 premium IRRESPECTIVE of the cancellation notices they send US!

If you don’t want to be automatically renewed YOU have to tell so in writing — because as far as they are concerned damn Obama, with his flapping lips, nullified their cancellation letter.

I am sure that legally they are on a sticky wicket BUT I don’t have the money to pay a DOUBLE premium in January and also fight these F***ers.

Yes, I have already written my letter.

So you have been warned.

Thanks are unnecessary. I am here to serve.

Réunion: A French Island In The Indian Ocean With 830K People. I JUST Learned That From My Blog!

I set out to learn at least 5 new things every day.

Given that I dabble near daily in papal history or astronomy that isn’t that hard to do. Did you know that Pope John XXIII (#262) spoke Bulgarian and Turkish?

To be honest I don’t typically look at the ‘Country List’ since it rarely changes. It is invariably the same ‘suspects’ in different rankings: U.S., Canada, U.K., Sri Lanka, India, Australia.

I think it was the flag. I can honestly say that I have not seen it before. I also do not ever remember seeing or hearing that name.
This is how it is pronounced — not exactly ‘re-union‘. Very sexy in a French way.

Slightly, very slightly bummed. I thought I knew MY Indian ocean. I grew up surrounded by the Indian on all sides and I have gone by ship to the Maldives, twice.

Pretty neat. Not sure why they visited the Website — but I am delighted. I have an inkling that it was the Beaujolais Nouveau.

If so I wish you a VERY MERRY Beaujolais Nouveau day,
and I will raise my glass to you on Thursday.

Given that I plan to get a few bottles I get a feeling that I will be raising my glass to a few countries.
