If this happened to I, I would not be amused. Strange bug. Obviously software, but in the calendar software. Usually bugs in calendar software gets picked up during beta testing.
Good to KNOW. I will now be even MORE hesitant about getting a Suunto watch — and right now, coincidentally, or otherwise they are having a 50% sale.

Yes, of course, absolutely bloody brilliant. WOW. Who would have thought.
Just 7 deaths — though, of course, even ONE death is too much.
They, especially the government & health professionals deserve much kudos & applause for this superhuman achievement.
Left the developed countries in the dust by quite a FEW orders of magnitude.
Yes, the numbers may not be fully accurate. But, I doubt whether, worst case, it is off by much more than say 1/100th. So, maybe 64,900 cases & 700 deaths. That is still absurdly low.
Until last night, when a cousin living in Sri Lanka, who happens to be a doctor, told me the details, I was NOT aware of the draconian lockdown & curfew.
They shut down all ‘ports’ — inbound & outbound. Not just passengers, goods as well.
It has been FORTRESS SRI LANKA for over a month.
They sure managed to keep the virus in check. BRAVO.
But, but, but … was it worth it?
At WHAT a huge cost?
I am sure that they will study this at Harvard, in years to come, as a Case Study. Was it the right thing to do?
Yes, when they started the lockdown, they, obviously, did not know what the infection & death rates were going to be.
But, the unintended consequences! WOW.
It, of course, has decimated the economy and the economy was already in BAD SHAPE following the tourist slump post the Easter 2019 ‘incident’.
People will DIE because of poverty!
This is sad. This is BAD.
Yes, of course, this being Sri Lanka there is dirty politics involved!
China will gain even more control.
All in all, I do not think this is good.
But, I am NOT an expert and I have no skin in the game.
I have raved about the Fitbit ‘Versa 2’ — more than once. Prior to the recent arrival of the Fitbit ‘Charge 4’, it was EASILY the BEST Fitbit ever. Now it has to share that title with the ‘Charge 4’ — but the ‘Charge 4’ is a BAND rather than a smartwatch per se.
So, I could say, Fitbit ‘Versa 2’ — Fitbit’s BEST smartwatch EVER.
$148.95 is quite the price. Good discount. Get one.
C/2019 Y4 (ATLAS), as I told you last week, has started to fragment.
You can clearly see that it continues to break-up. It will NOT be naked-eye visible. SORRY.
Hopefully C/2020 F8 (SWAN) will step in. I am keeping an eye — quite literally.
Google Doodle For April 28, 2020, Was About ‘Cricket’ & Repurposed From June 1, 2017 — ICC Champions Trophy.
I knew it was cricket-related as soon as I saw it. The wickets were a dead giveaway. The rolling-pin as a bat was a bit off-putting.
Then there was the sock — or more to the point a sock with very distinctive coloring. You have to be a devoted fan, such as I, to spot that. Those are the West Indies colors.
Anyway, here is my post for the June 1, 2017 Google Doodle. Enjoy.
I have been a long-term subscriber to this Facebook page:
I no longer get daily posts from them, BUT today I lucked out to get the post (way up top) about Anna Alma-Tadema. Wow. I was mesmerized. Spellbound. It looked like a high-resolution photograph. I still can’t believe it is a painting. Wow.
I had to share it with you. And I am.
Quite the lady. A suffragette as well.
Appears that her father, a knighted ‘Sir’, was quite famous too.
She reminded me of her … from November.
