What an incredible, enchanting, mesmerizing delight — a feast for all your senses — just outside of Ellsworth (Maine), on Route 1a, the GATEWAY to Acadia.

We saw the building in June 2017, the first time we went to Acadia via Bangor (and Route 1a) rather than the longer (and maybe the more scenic) Route 1.

In 2017 it was empty. We thought that that was a great shame.

In June 2018 as we drove by we saw activity and stopped. They said they were going to be opening next week! We were excited.

This June we stopped. And aren’t we glad we did.

What a place. Creativity and imagination run riot. And a treasure trove of wonderful STUFF. Not badly priced either. Yes, individual consignment stalls and it all blends together into a tantalizing whole. We could have spent hours there BUT we know we will stop each and every time we go to Acadia and we go to Acadia quite a lot.

You have to stop, explore and enjoy. You will love it and memories will stay with you for a long time.

Enjoy.

‘Period Poverty’ Bill, Spearheaded By Schoolgirl, Becomes New Hampshire Law — Something To Be Proud Of.

by Anura Guruge


Click image to access ‘Fosters.com’ original.


I am SO impressed, so happy. This is so pro-female, pro-children. It is great. I am so proud of her — Caroline Dillion. I do not know her but wish her all the best and hope she goes far. Maybe a FUTURE president. She will be good.

As a father of three daughters, who still lives in a house with three females I surely can relate to this. SMILE.

That there could be kids in the U.S. that don’t have access to these essential products is criminal.

I am so glad that New Hampshire is putting this right.

I have no idea. But, what will it increase my property tax bill by — $10/year. I, for one, am happy to pay. I will even pay more. SMILE.

Reading about this MADE MY DAY!

Yet Another Walk In The Woods, ‘Chamberlain Road’, Alton, New Hampshire — July 16, 2019.

by Anura Guruge

Another rugged, secluded trail, through thick woods, v. close to home that I had never ventured on prior to this because as with ‘Africa Road‘, yesterday, I thought it was private — and I stay away from private property. Interesting and easy hike, though a tad rocky in spots and waterlogged at one end. It was fun though kind of monotonous. Nothing to see but woods and there is no reward at the end. Just turn around and walk back. But, great exercise and I got my 4-miles in. So, I am happy.

Brown Men Do Tan — The 2019 Tan Lines (From My Garmin).

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE & Admire.


Last year’s post. Read that IF you are interested as to my history of tanning and my adoptive mother.


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.

This is all from my ‘Garmin MARQ Expedition’ I have been wearing 24×7 (bar time to charge it) since May 20 — other than 4-days earlier this month when I was evaluating the ‘Polar Ignite‘.

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.

by Anura Guruge


Click to access original. Google ‘Amazfit GTR’ for more.



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)).
