Helping younger kids is something she really enjoys and is a natural at.

This was her, helping out at an afterschool program at ‘New Durham’ library this afternoon. She loved it and actually did quite a bit.

She did a fair amount of similar volunteering at this library over the Summer. Probably 9 or 12 hours. Maybe more.

This is becoming a forte. She is helping out at school too.

It is good. Something else that goes with her art.

WIN A FREE ‘Fitbit Versa 2’ Smartwatch From ‘HRM USA’, My Favorite (Actually ‘ONLY’) Smartwatch Vendor.

This is a genuine deal.

HRM USA — ‘Heart Rate Monitors USA‘ — does not lie, does not cheat, does not deceive. They really are honest as the day is long. You really can trust them.

I do, and have for the last 2-years.

They are just amazing. So, customer-focused. You always come first.

Yes, I have done so much business with them that we are friends — BUT, as some of you know, I am very fussy and finicky about who I consider a friend. So, that alone should tell a story.

Give this a go. What have you got to lose?

You could end up winning a nice, new Fitbit Versa 2.

SMILE.

Another Awesome, Uplifting Story About Ultra High-Tech Cure For Some Types Of Blindness — You HAVE To Read.

From above story.

This is so inspiring, awesome and uplifting. Just great that talented engineers are doing so much to help the blind gain some sight. Way back, when I first joined IBM, in the mid-1970s, I tried to do my bit. But, that was nothing. Nothing like this. So, glad. So, happy. Being in total darkness cannot be much fun though these brave people tough it out. Just seeing some light and some shape, to begin with, has to be such a relief. Literally, light at the end of the tunnel.

Second great story in two months. We must be making strides. I am delighted. Savor. Share. Contemplate.

Another Helium Balloon Escapes To The Heavens To Later Cause Mylar Pollution.

Yes, I like helium balloons. I didn’t have them growing up in Ceylon, but as a father to four kids, as of 1989, I know that I have bought too many. I even used to get the helium canisters for the home. Then c. 2012 I heard about the helium shortage. I started to become responsible about wasting helium. Since 2012 I have really cut back on buying helium balloons. Yes, I know kids like them and they cheer up the sick. So, it is a compromise.

Yes, I have seen too many helium balloons go ‘bye-bye’. I even watched a 12-year, rather spoilt boy, intentionally let go of a $99 motor-driven, helium filled shark. We tried to chase that down by car!

Yes, I know some set them loose intentionally — to be symbolic of freedom. This was at Concord Hospital, today. So, it could have been either, accidental or intentional. Either way it could end up two-weeks later in a field, woods or a lake. Animals will peck at it. Not good. Sad.

But, in the scheme of things we have bigger problems.

But, PLEASE try not to buy too many helium balloons.

Tell Realtors to cut it out.
