‘Deadwater Fell’, Set In Scotland, On ‘Acorn’ TV, Is Quite The Yarn, Will Have You Hooked.

by Anura Guruge




It was good. Very good. First 20-minutes were confusing — & you later realize that it was intentional, cleverly intentional.

Tight. Well woven. Very clever. Some might say it was trite. I found it entertaining & definitely watchable.

Well, just letting you know. Might not be everybody’s cup of tea. But, it sure was mine. Towards the end I had to know how it ended. That doesn’t often happen.

My Fitness Age Is Now 31. 35-Years Below Actual, Per VO2 Max Measured By A Garmin Fenix 6.

by Anura Guruge


This is per my new Garmin Fenix 6 which I wear 24×7.

Click to ENLARGE & spit at.



What cracks me up is that I have a daughter, my eldest, who is 31. So, my fitness age matches her age. Not sure what she will make of that.

I managed to get my VO2 fitness age down by 5 years since May 2020. Trying to avoid COVID has helped.

Well, I am chuffed. Not sure how long I can keep it up — i.e., walking close to 8-miles a day. I am an OLD GUY.

My 14-year old daughter takes my fitness for granted. She expects me to keep up with her. SMILE.

Don’t hate I. I can’t help it. I do like to walk/run. SMILE.

A Neighbour Is Trying To Trap Something — But I Am Sure It Is NOT My Bear, & Better NOT Be My Bobcat.

They have had this small (humane) trap out for the last two nights. I took this picture last night on my 11pm walk.

You can see the TWO blue paper dishes with what looks like dog food. There are three of these, but one is in darkness. They are all OUTSIDE of the trap. [This morning, following the quite spectacular thunderstorm we had, the bowls were waterlogged & the trap was still open.]

I assume they know what they are doing. So, will notice that they have draped it in blankets so that the animal can’t see too much of the metal or shape.

I am sure of one thing. It is NOT for MY bear. Trap is too small. That is good. I do NOT want my bear or bears trapped. I am cool with them. I like bears.

My bear — with whom I connected — on May 26, 2020.


It could, however, be for MY bobcat. He/she isn’t that big & this house is sure on its route. I do NOT want to see the bobcat trapped. I am not even sure whether you can legally trap a bobcat. I do not know — & don’t have the time to check. SMILE.

It better NOT be for my bobcat. IF I see it in the trap, I will let it out. SMILE. I am like that.

My bobcat — from June 24, 2020.


Stay tuned. This could be FUN. Smile.

Latest Issue Of ‘National Geographic’ ‘HISTORY’ Magazine Has Very Informative Article On The Dawning Of The Atomic Age.

I insist on subscribing to the printed versions of BOTH the “National Geographic” & the companion “History” magazines. They are both naturals for I.

I like “History”. They always have multiple articles that catch my attention — & I invariably learn a lot. And that I love.

Good article. Some interesting insights into the politics & one accident. IF this chapter of history intrigued you, you must read this article.
