This popped up on my Facebook Timeline (for reasons I cannot fathom) and had be hooked just from the title.

AI for any camera. I have been ASKING for that.

This might be the answer to my dreams. Finally better pictures.

I am going to have to look into this. This looks like a winner.

Last Time Chanukah (Hanukkah) Started On December 2 Was 38-Years Ago.

Yes, last time Chanukah (Hanukkah) started on December 2 was 1980. 38-years ago.

Prior to that it was 1961, 1923 & 1904.

This makes it the 5th time since 1900.

As this graph from last year shows that, i.e., 5-times, is par for the course., Nothing to get excited about.

Next time will be 2037 — 19-years from now (and interestingly, half the interval from the prior occurrence).

It was also a 19-year gap between 1980 and 1961 … and between 1923 and 1904.

Yes, Chanukah/Hanukkah falls on certain days — within the 30-day range it can fall on — more often than not, though over, the last 118 years, the distribution has been fairly even, as one would hope (and expect).

December 7, for whatever reason, has been more favored than any other.

December 12, as in 2017, has had 5, which is a fairly common.

The first day of the range, November 27, as can often be the case, has only had 2 ‘showings’.

New Zealand’s Win Over Pakistan By 4-Runs, In The 1st Test, In Abu Dhabi, Was A Doozy.

Wow. What a last day (the 4th). I have been following the whole series, the T20s, ODIs & now the 1st Test, with interest and joy. Some good, exciting cricket.

I had watched the Test match highlights each day — some while having lunch and the rest at night, over dinner. Exciting Test match.

Hats off, most certainly, to New Zealand. A totally unexpected win — against the grain. It only became a possibility right at the end. Poor Pakistan. They showed one of their fans, a middle-aged man, crying.

Amazing spin bowling by the debutant — Ajaz Patel. This was good for cricket.
