Other than the circles, everything else is hand drawn.


What can I say! She creates one of these every couple of days. We have a large dining room table with multiple madalas lying on it — and some 30 on the walls.

This mandala has ‘gems’ glued to it. It is a true work of art. I really must do something with it,

Enjoy.

Unsolicited Validation Of ‘Brain Meditation’ By An ER Physician Assistant (Certified).

As you may have read, here & here, I busted my knee, well & truly, last Thursday morning, when I fell awkwardly while shoveling snow. There was an almighty crack. Left knee was at a funny angle and there were things pointing out from it. I couldn’t get up. Finally hobbled into the house. Knee was in bad shape. Managed to pull on a knee brace onto it and that made a big difference. I could at least now drag the leg along.

Made it to the ER at ‘Frisbie Memorial Hospital’ in Rochester (NH) by noon — about 90-minutes after I had done the damage. I was in some pain, but I was doing OK. I hadn’t taken any pain medication and declined the first batch that was offered to I.

Once I was horizontal on the ER bed most of the pain, if not all of it, went away. I could just lie there with no pain to talk about. That is par for the course for I. {Sorry!}

They did a X-ray and a contrast CT Scan (which required the insertion of 2 IVs, the 1st apparently not large enough for the contrast dye they wanted to pump into I).

They diagnosed that I had completely ruptured (i.e., seperated) my Quadriceps Tendon.

I needed surgery, to reattach it, within 10-days. (Surgery is scheduled for tomorrow.)

They gave me some acetaminophen (Tylenol) about 2-hours into my stay and a shot of morphine before I left.


But, as I was being discharged the female Physician Assistant (Certified) (PA-C), from Maine, who had taken care of me throughout my 4.25 hour stay came to check up on me.

After going through all the formalities, she said: “So, what is your secret? Mind-over-matter? This is fairly serious injury and you coped with it like it was not too bad“.

BINGO!

I told her about my ‘Brain Meditation’.

If you look at the top picture I had spelled all of that out, as a ‘Reward’, 3-years earlier.

So, here was proof.

Ability to: module pain, coping with lifestyle change and continued serenity.

‘Brain Meditation’, as I spell it out here, has served me well over the first 6-days. I am basically pain-free. Just taking 2 Aleves a day — and that is mainly as a precaution.

The Physician Assistant’s was going to check out my book. As she said, it certainly seemed to be working.

“Marvellous” (2014), True-Life Movie On “Acorn” Really Is Marvellous & Very Uplifting.

We watch a fair bit of ‘Acorn TV‘ — of late, the rather addictive detective series ‘Vera‘. Happen to see ‘Marvellous’ in the ‘New Releases’ section. Recognised Toby Jones, from the ‘Detectorists‘ and ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom‘, and knew that it would be worth watching. It sure was. It was a TREAT. Really was marvellous in all respects. A TRUE STORY and the real person makes cameo appearances in the movie.

Very well done. Really warms the cockles of your heart. You really should watch it. It is available, full-length, on YouTube.

I really liked. I might try and read the book. That is how much I liked and enjoyed this movie.

Topless Skydiving ‘Fleggaard’ Supermarket Commercial — Way Too Racy For American TV.

by Anura Guruge

Very clever & obviously irresistibly compelling to most of us lucky men who are, of course, genetically programmed to respond to such visual titillation.

As far as marketing goes it is absolutely brilliant.

It is to sell € 269 (i.e., US $305) Siemens washing machines!

These washing machines are being sold in Denmark by a small (Costco-owned) supermarket chain named ‘Fleggaard’. You see that name come up at the end.

Though Siemens is German these washing machines are cheaper at Fleggaard’s (in Denmark) than they are in Germany – and Fleggaard has supermarkets right on the border (albeit on the Danish side).

Hence the message at the end: ‘Lige over grænsen’ (Just over the border). And since both countries are in the European Union there are no customs or taxes. Just like buying a washing machine from another State and hauling it back.

Very clever.

Well, I being who I am wanted to know how the commercial was made. I knew that the girls did NOT skydive topless. ‘They’ would have FROZE. Simple as that. So, I went looking. Found how it was made. Pretty close to what I thought. Enjoy.

It is a privilege to see these being created and be able to savor the real thing up close. My photographs, however, hard I try, do not do them justice. They have a 3D quality, especially when she uses stick-on crystals — as she did on this one. You can see a circle of them in the middle circle and on the points of the main star. We are trying to get her to sell these. But, no. These are hers and she is keeping them. Our dining rooms are rapidly getting covered in mandalas. I think we have upwards of 22.

William Cheever Turner’s Amazing Vehicular Art On Display At The ‘Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center’.

Copyright belongs to Mr. William Cheever Turner.



Click to access his impressive Website with a LOT of his pictures to marvel with awe.




I have always said that going to ‘Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center‘ (DHMC), in Lebanon, N.H. is like visiting a resort rather than a high-end, full-function hospital. They go out of their way to make the environment soothing and pleasing to the senses. You are surrounded by very high-class art and if you are lucky, as I was this morning, with live music from a piano  player at a grand.

They had works by Milford (N.H.) artist ‘William Cheever Turner‘ on display in one wing. I had never heard of him and I wish I had. His work, as you can see, is quite spectacular. I took a few pictures so I could SHARE them with you. You have to check out his. The level of detail and realism is phenomenal.

It was a good day overall, and we were not there for anything serious. These paintings made my morning.

Enjoy.

Piano Player At Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center On Valentine’s Day 2019.

by Anura Guruge


Click for YouTube video.


There are many nice things about the ‘Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center‘ (DHMC), in Lebanon, N.H. They go to GREAT lengths to make it NOT look and feel like a hospital. I kid you not. I have spent a LOT of time at DHMC over the last 13-years. For one, Teischan was born there, and I was there for 3-days on the trot for that.

They have a lot of great art and a number of grands strategically positioned around the rambling campus. This is the one closest to the main entrance. Anybody is welcome to play them, Typically volunteers set out to regale the folks. This appeared to be one of them. Fairly good chance he works there.

This was quite early in the morning, i.e., around 9:30am. But, it was Valentine’s Day. So, it was good. I liked him. You can hear me clapping.

Enjoy.
