I Think My Lighthouse Picture With My Sony a7 II Is Better Than This One From The New Nikon D850.

Brilliant Read Fall Foliage New Hampshire October 2017 Anura Guruge Sony a7 II

I could be wrong, but it could be the same lighthouse, i.e., Nobska Lighthouse, in Woods HoleMassachusetts.

I get a ‘Nikon Rumors‘ e-mail every night.

It just struck a chord — a funny one at that.

They are both fullframe cameras. So, it is an apples-to-apples comparison. Yes, I appreciate the Nikon one is supposed to be the view through the optical viewfinder. Nonetheless, I think my pictures has richer, warmer colors. {Smile}

California Wine Country Wildfires Most Likely Will Majorly Spike Wine Prices.

by Anura Guruge

Just Examples. Google for more, much more.

** ** ** ** ** 

While the human and animal tragedy is palpable and immense, it is NOT as churlish as it may first appear to start thinking about what this is going to do for wine prices. To be fair it was 11-year old Teischan who got me thinking about it as we were watching the news. It resonates with her, to an extent, in that we were in San Francisco & Yosemite area last year, in April.

The economy of that area, as we know, is inexorably linked to wine. Appears that even prior to these devastating fires there had been some major concerns about this year’s crop because of Summer heat that withered the vines. Appears that the crop was down even ahead of the destruction caused by the fires. Plus, the ashes left on the ground can have an impact on the taste of grapes for years to come!

Wine does make a noticeable contribution to the Californian — and thus — U.S. economy. A marked drop in wine revenues will have a ripple effect.

Wine prices at the consumer level are bound to go up and I am not sure whether other countries will be willing to bail us out. This, whichever way you look at it, is not good news for wine lovers — such as I.

The ‘Battle Of Hastings’, That Pivotally Changed British History, Took Place This Day, 951-Years Ago.

Click to ENLARGE and read here. Wikipedia:


Click to ENLARGE. I created this map for you.

A segment of the Bayeux Tapestry that shows the whole lead-up to the battle and the battle itself. It is 230′ long. I have a picture of a part of it in my bedroom.

A red-letter day in all of World history. Most people know that it was in 1066 BUT I am not sure that they recall that it took place on October 14th. It lasted just the day, from around 9am to dusk. Harold Godwinson, the LAST Anglo-Saxon King of England, died towards the end of the day — supposedly from an arrow that pierced his eye.

Halley’ comet was seen in the skies earlier that year and is depicted in the Bayeux Tapestry.

Garmin Support Confirms That “All Day Heart Rate” Menu Option Only Displayed in ‘Connect’ With Applicable Devices.

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE. Received as an e-mail.

Click to ENLARGE.

This had to do with ‘Garmin Connect’ not displaying the “All Day Heart Rate” Menu Option once I had removed my Garmin Vivoactive HR on October 9, 2017.

I kind of suspected that this omission had to do with the removal of the Vivoactive HR — since it would have been too much of a coincidence otherwise.

But, Garmin telephone support DISAGREED!

They said menu option should always be there even if there was no device that supported HR.

So, I thought I would check with e-mail support — since I could send them a screenshot.

So, this was the outcome.

Sharing in case YOU run into the same problem.
