We have had a LOT of sun in New Hampshire this year and I am spending more time out in it exercising. When I looked at last year’s post I was amazed to discover that that was taken a month later. I have a darker tan, already, this year.
No, I do NOT wear sunblock. Never have and never plan to use. We, from Sri Lanka, don’t get skin cancer or sunburnt. Well we have to have some advantages for sporting this skin.
Though I still tell folks that I am so brown because of all the chocolate I ate (and that is true) I really haven’t eaten any chocolates in 6-years. So, this is ALL sun.
So, what are YOUR tan lines like? Better than these?
Yes, my skin, from the sun is dry and just yesterday I started lathering it in oil and creams.
‘Amazfit GTR’ With 24-Day Battery Life & Premium Fashion Look Will Be Available In The U.S. In August 2019.
The Amazfit GTR with the leather strap, titanium-body and high-end looks reminds me of the Garmin MARQ Expedition I wear — though there is an ORDER OF MAGNITUDE difference in price!
Functionally, other than the incredible, 24-day battery-life and water-resistance to 50-meters, it, with the trademark bright AMOLED display (with 326 pixel resolution), appears to have functionality similar to the quite impressive Amazfit Verge (e.g., GPS/GLONASS, 12 sport modes etc.). There is NO MENTION, as yet, of an ECG/EKG capability. But, that might come.
I have been told that it will be available in the U.S. in August 2019. I have not got an exact date yet. I will work on that.
Looks a nice watch. I might get one and put my Garmin MARQ Expedition away (to ‘appreciate’ in peace (SMILE)).
National Park Service Manages To Regain Ionic Yosemite Names Like ‘Curry Village’ & ‘Ahwahnee Hotel’ — Albeit For $3.8 Million!
This is GREAT News.
Shame that it cost the National Park Service $3.84 Million. They are short of funds.
This should never have been allowed to happen in the first place.
I wrote about this, in reference to beloved ‘Curry Village‘, after my last visit in 2016.
Good News. The Park Service owns the names now.
It all had to do with who owned these iconic names like ‘Curry Village’. The National Park Service had not made an effort, in the past, to make sure that they owned them. That was the problem.
The prior Concession Holder to the Park held the rights to the name and only now parted with them after a total payoff coming to $12 million.
But, the National Park Service will, in essence, own the names going forward. That is GREAT news.
But, this issue is happening or going to happen in other Parks too. Concession Holders ‘trademarking’ iconic park names. The Park Service has to stop this.
