Deanna saw this on the Web and brought it to my attention. Never heard of them. They are NOT, I repeat NOT, the circus act that performed at the “America’s Got Talent” (AGT) semi-finals 1-hour ‘results’ show, on Wednesday, September 12, 2018. That was ‘A Magical Circus Christmas. They seem MUCH BETTER — but they are not coming to New Hampshire. These folks are.

About time we had a circus in Manchester. The last ‘Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey Circus‘, which we attended, was in April 2017. This is good. I hope they are halfway decent. We deserve that.

A Collage Of Nikon Cameras From 1948 to 1971.

by Anura Guruge


From ‘Nikon Rumors’ with THANKS but it is originally from a “New York Times” article published c. 1959. So, I am not too concerned that I am stepping on anybody’s copyright.


Thought you might enjoy seeing these. I do NOT think I owned any of these. I do, however, remember seeing the Nikkormat FTn and Nikon F2. Pretty neat.

Triangular, Toblerone Swiss Train Is A Joke.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. This morning on MY Facebook Timeline.


As you can clearly see from my comment I immediately knew that this was an April Fool’s joke. But, it was clever and cute and I used to LOVE Toblerone. I used to bring bars over from Europe to the U.S. in the 1980s and hooked a legion of folks hooked on it. That was way before it became readily available here.

Well, this picture had me intrigued enough that I did some Googling. It was well known. It did NOT start off as a Toblerone train. Instead it was just a triangular train — the premise being that such trains would fit better inside tunnels. Somebody took the triangular train and made it into the Toblerone train and STUCK a comic driver in the cab JUST IN CASE we did not spot that it was a joke.

So, here is the original triangular train you can see the white house, with red roof, behind the train and realize that this is it. Note that the wheels got slanted!


And that was Photoshopped from this.
Again check the background and you can see the commonality.
