The Tourist That Fell Over The Edge At The ‘Grand Canyon’, And Died, Could Very Well Have Been I!

Yes, I know. I get told off a LOT. Acadia, Canyon de Chelly, Yosemite, Grand Canyon … I always test the limits. I try to wear good shoes with GRIP. But, I have slipped more than once at Acadia!

My heart goes out to these folks. Yes, we do try to be careful.

Life is but an adventure ….

Is God Supposed To Be Disabled — Or Is That Just A Quirky New Hampshire Thing?

In front of us, on Loudon Road, Concord, NH at 4:24pm, today.


Rather old Chrysler Grand Caravan driven by a silver-haired lady.

We had one of those too. So, we had the same minivan as God? Pretty cool.

At least it wasn’t German.


New Hampshire disabled license plate.


No question. This is NOT a ‘PhotoShop‘, hoax or early April Fool’s Joke. This was kosher.

Not sure what to make of it.

Am I supposed to believe that this is God’s minivan and that she is disabled? That seems incongruous. The ‘+’ is often used in NH vanity plates as a space filler.

Another interpretation is that it is the (or a ) disabled PLUS God. That makes more sense. But, if I was permanently disabled, as opposed to temporarily (we hope), I wouldn’t be too chummy with God. I would want to know: “God, why I?“. “What did I do that was so bad?“. “What about one of your miracles?


Now there is something else. NH DMV, quite rightly, as some guidelines, though this is all it says on their Website: “Certain letter/character combinations, such as H8, will not be allowed”.

I am surprised that ‘God’ was permitted. But, this is indeed ‘Live Free OR Die’ New Hampshire.


So this gets curiouser. So, ‘+God’ is in Concord. ~40 miles away, in Alton, we have “God’s Final Word“. Do you think they get together. Both minivans. Very strange.

The First Review Of The New ‘Garmin MARQ’ Smartwatches — “Digital Trends”.

He really does seem to be struggling to find good things to say about them. That is not surprising. Like I, he too is concerned about their price and specialization. Garmin makes it sound like you need BOTH the ‘Athlete’ & ‘Expedition’, for a total cost of $2,250, if you are into running, swimming, biking and hiking.

What bothers me most, and this review highlights it, is that this is but an upgrade to the Fenix 5 Plus — but maintaining the same old display technology and most likely most of the innards.

That said, I most likely will get one! {Smile}

I can upgrade my Garmin Fenix 5 Plus for one of the models — most likely the ‘Expedition’. The upgrade path is the only reason I would get one. Makes it reasonably affordable — and crazy not to get so that I will be in line to UPGRADE to the next new watch from Garmin. {Smile}

I will, of course, keep you posted.
