A good video.
Worth watching IF you are considering a Garmin Vivoactive 3.


The stainless-steel nor the white appeals. As some of you know, I, having worn a diamond-studded Rolex for 30-years, am fond of nice looking watches. Wearing the Vivoactive HR has been rather ‘different’ at times.

That was ANOTHER motivating factor to consider upgrading to the Vivoactive 3. With a leather or metal mesh strap it could look halfway dressy WHEN I am dressed up.

So, I want the slate model.

Got it from an insider at Garmin itself today. Shipments of the slate model are slated for October 20, 2017. I had heard that on the rumor mill too.

The white model is already available at Best Buy — BUT not at Amazon.

I might have to buy the slate model directly from Garmin.

What I am going to do with the Vivoactive HR is SOLVED. Devanee is going to take it!

Dow Shoots Up 152 To A Stock Market Record On The Day Of The Worst Mass Shooting In History — MUST Tell Us Something!

by Anura Guruge


From MarketWatch.com


The relentless, never ending RISE of the Stock Market since Drump. From MarketWatch.com.


This was sobering and scary. This is a market that knows NO FEAR — and that is scary.

What would justify investors driving up the market, to 152 pts on the Dow, and to an all time HIGH when TV media, all day, has been saturated in blood. This is unreal. Yes, I know. It is the greed to do with the looming tax cuts. But, that is a long way out.

Not sour grapes on my part. I am fully-invested, and long — and have been since 2007! {Smile} Yes, I took all the pain, downturn and horrendous losses of the recession and held my nerve just. I can smile now. So, this is good for I. But, I am very pragmatic investor. I know when we go against the grain and that we are doing right now.

Today, was NOT right, by any measure, any standard, any set of values. We are going to have to pay for this greed — though I use the ‘we’ more in the Royal sense. Scary.

I am, as you might expect, a HUGE FAN of Charles Darwin — though I do have some question (though none too ground breaking) on some aspects of evolution. Oh! I believe, implicitly, in evolution (sans any intelligent ‘input’) but I think WE have glossed over some parts.

Nonetheless, Darwin changed the World, for the better — though he was lucky. He had some real competition.

Somewhere in the mid-1980s I read Irving Stone’s monumental “The Origin” — which is about Darwin. You should definitely try to read it.

181-years ago! Wow.

The One And Ever Only, Mahatma Gandhi, Was Born This Day, 148-Years Ago; October 2, 1869.

Setting off on the epic, history-altering SALT MARCH in 1930. See my post on March 12, 2017.



Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi .

I love ‘Mohandas’. Gives me the chills when I hear it.

How the world could do with him TODAY. Ah, the Mahātmā (‘Great Soul‘ in Sanskrit).

He, alas, was before my time — he was tragically assassinated 5.8 years ahead of my birth.

BUT, he is in my TOP-TIER pantheon of personal heroes, alongside: Winston Churchill, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King & Obama!

A time to PAUSE, especially today … after Las Vegas!
