This was as of yesterday. As I had previously told you, Garmin Express (at least on Windows) does NOT auto-update or provide you with any notification that an update is available. You have to check manually.

Not sure what going up to 5.8 from 5.7 did. I haven’t seen any differences. Maybe it was to add support to the Vivoactive 3.

Yes, I am fond of his work — and NOT just ‘The Thinker‘ that I used on the cover of my “Quick Guide To Brain Meditation” book.

I am lucky to have seen his work in a number of places, Paris, New York, San Francisco & Philadelphia in the key.

Died exactly 100-year ago, 5-days after turning 77.

“A Place To Call Home”, The Australian “Downton Abbey”, Season 5 Premieres On “Acorn TV” On Thanksgiving 2017.

We are addicted to this show and have hungrily watched each and every episode, sometimes 2 or 3 at a sitting. Teischan went back over the Summer and watched it ALL — all over again — on her own.

We discovered this Australian series, serendipitously, on ‘Acorn TV‘ (on our Roku), in 2015 and were hooked as of Episode 1. We think of it as an Australian “Downton Abbey“. Good storyline. Has you both rooting for various characters and in ‘suspenders’. Very watchable.

Teischan will be so excited.

Kind of cute. Season 4, last year, also premiered on Thanksgiving Day (albeit 2016). So, Acorn is kind of teasing us. That is OK.

This made my day. Yippeee!

People With Interesting Names: A Weatherman Named “Ken Weathers”.

by Anura Guruge


Click here for the U.K. “Daily Mail” original.



Made my day when I saw in the U.K. “Daily Mail” this morning — the “Daily Mail” (which I have read most of my life) being the first thing I read every morning, while still lying in bed.

Wonder whether his name ‘Weathers’ influenced his desire to become a ‘weatherman’? Wonder if many comment about it … at all?

But now … it gets more ‘amusing’.

Who would have thought. A castrated ram! Poor Mr. Weathers. Wonder if he knows that?

My Man, Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery, Was Born This Day, 130-Years Ago.

Wow. He sounds like Winston Churchill!


Our Monty. Named after the GREAT MAN.


I waxed lyrical about him just 25-days ago! So, I will keep this succinct.

 

Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery, 1st Viscount Montgomery of Alamein, KG, GCB, DSO, PC, DL  a man I revere. 

One of my GREAT heroes. I paid him the ultimate compliment that I can. I named a Golden after him … as I had done with Winston & Ulysses.

He is a source of inspiration and GREAT PRIDE. What a MAN. We would NOT be ‘here’ speaking English if NOT for him.

Just spare a second to think of what Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery did for US.
