It is NOT great compared to what I see daily, BUT it isn’t bad either. We are indeed spoilt for choice. Notice the railing I put up a few years ago. Still standing, SMILE.

If you look you will see multiple faces in there. IF you are a connoisseur you will see the resemblance to Rodin’sBurghers of Calais“. SMILE.

How Secure Are “Maine State Prisons” IF They Employ Guards Who Are OVER 90-YEARS Old?

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


Saw this on Facebook. Yes, I notice dates & can still do quick calculations of ages.

1824 to 2002. That is ONE heck of a long career — never mind A LIFE. 178-years. That would make him even OLDER than Abraham who only lived to be 175.

Wow. How come we have not heard of him.

Has to be, easily, the OLDEST man alive by miles. Even older than Biden — who he seems to have a crush upon. I can understand that.

Just think. He has lived through the U.S. Civil War, WW I, WW II, Korea, Vietnam … & now Trump. What stories he could tell. And active on Facebook at HIS age. WOW.

Must have been quite the Prison Guard.

IF Rudy Giuliani & Chris Christie Are Trump’s Icons Of Catholic MORALITY I Am A LIVING (Bloody) Saint!

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. Watch YouTube video below. Towards the end, try 49-minute.


Listen towards the end. Around the 49-minute mark.


Yes, this was the Sunday, September 27, 2020, Trump ‘Tax Return’ Press Conference. Yes, Trump played all his tricks to talk everything other than his taxes. So, he got into bashing Democrats about questioning Amy Coney Barrett’s Catholic values. This is when the two clowns, Rudy Giuliani & Chris Christie, were put forward as PERFECT Catholics. Bloody Giuliani even had the gall to talk about his PERSONAL Catholic Morals!

Ah?

Giuliani & Morals. That is like saying Trump pays taxes or that I am WHITE.

Jesus Wept.

I know a number of folks who are good, devout Catholics. Giuliani talking about his personal Catholic morals is an affront to THEM. With Giuliani where do you start? Adultery for one. Serial adultery. What a joke, IF not for the fact that we do have SOME good, decent, devout, MORAL Catholics. But not Rudy Giuliani or Chris Christie — or for that matter I.

I am NOT a Catholic. Never have been, never will be. But compared to Rudy Giuliani & Chris Christie I have been a LIVING Saint over the last 20-years. SMILE.

Garmin ‘Venu SQ (Music)’: GPS Distance, HR, Pace etc. Very Accurate. Very Slight Overcounting Of Steps.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.



I have done two walks with the Venu SQ with it side-by-side (on my left wrist) next to my Fenix 6 Solar PRO.

One walk last night was just under a mile; this morning’s walk was 5.45 miles.

GPS distance was within 0.03-mile. 5.45 on the Fenix vs 5.48 on the Venu SQ. That is not bad. On the short night walk the Venu was out by just 10-steps! Over the 5.45-miles it overcounted by 320 steps. That, from my experience, is not bad at all, at all.

GPS distance on the Fenix 6 is fairly reliable. I have checked it against multiple other Fenixs, a MARQ, Fitbits, Polars, AMAZFITs not to mention phones & cars. Difficult to ever get two devices to be exactly spot on re. GPS, but my Fenix 6 is within the acceptable band. I test all other watches against it – at least to start with. I am happy with the Venu SQ. I have seen some HOWLERS this year – though not from Garmin. SMILE. So, that is all good & encouraging. 3% overcount is tolerable. I am sure I could optimize it if I messed around with stride length. Started using the Venu SQ as my primary (& thus only) watch as of this afternoon. I have tried some new watch faces & a very FINE all-in-one Data Field for walking. With that one Data Field I get all the data, on one screen, as I was with a customized screen on my Fenix 6. More on that on a later review. For now – thumbs up.


Please click to access the “Heart Rate Monitors USA” (HRM USA) product page. You will not regret it. ONLY place to buy Garmins & Fitbits in the U.S. Honest.
