Wow. It is true. I happened to see this ‘post’, on my Google News feed earlier today. When I was next in front of the TV I tried it out. Yes, they are free. STRANGE. Couldn’t find a Christmas theme. Closest was a ‘White Winter’. So, have that now. See below. Enjoy.

These are my friends at HRM USA — the place at which I have been buying ALL my many activity trackers for the last year. Given that they discovered that I blog they had asked whether I would do some reviews for them. I was glad to oblige. So, here is one. I have done more.

This was truly a High Dynamic Range (HDR)
performance — musically & visually.
Non-stop celebration of HOPE & JOY.
What a delight.
And it was FREE!
Thank YOU (again) to the amazing “William H. Gile” Trust
that put on these FREE concerts in Concord, NH.
The “Summer of Love Concert” in June 2018
was brilliant — this was equally good.
This time I knew it was going to be good. I am a BIG “Ladysmith Black Mambazo” fan (and I have seen them live at least twice) and I kind of knew, intuitively, that this Choir would be in that mould. They were and they did NOT disappoint.
The ‘jubilation‘ mentioned on their Website (above) is a real good description. I also saw, in the concert program, that the U.K. ‘The Scotsman’ had called their performance: ‘riot of exuberance‘. Yes, that is a great description too.
High energy & ultra dynamic. Hence, why HDR — High Dynamic Range — came to my mind as I watched them, entranced and enthralled.
This concert was a part of their tribute to the GREAT MAN, Nelson Mandela’s 100th anniversary year.
As such right through the concert they set out to pay tribute to:
And in each instance they succeeded brilliantly.
An inspired, celebratory performance that was uplifting & motivational but at the same time a reminder of where we have all been (in terms of oppression) and where we might still head! It made you think. It made you realize that people will prevail. We need great leaders like Nelson Mandela.
Their CDs are available at Amazon. They will make great Christmas presents.

A review I wrote for ‘Heart Rate Monitors USA’ (HRM USA) about the OOFOS OOcloog Clogs I got from them.
I am usually pretty prosaic and unfussy about footwear, BUT these incredibly squishy and insanely comfortable clogs were something else.
It really did remind me of this song. Do YOU remember it? If you know it, then that is ALL I have to tell you. Walking around in these clogs is like it says in the song.
Read the review, if you need more convincing.
My palms with their end-to-end Simian Lines.
About 10% of the worldwide population have ONE Simian line — with the incidence among Asians higher than with other races.
Having an end-to-end Simian lines, going across both palms, is much rarer — about 3% of the worldwide population. Yes, it is supposed to indicate possible latent health issues. Total bunkum. I will get to that in a second.
I grew up in Ceylon (Sri Lanka) where palm reading is a way of life. I got many comments about my hands — the most memorable from an uncle who was a prominent doctor. “Hhhhmmm. We will have to keep an eye on you. I have only seen hands like this once … and that was with …“. It was a notorious ‘criminal’!
BUT, in the end, astrology notwithstanding, my hands show I am LESS evolved than others! Yep, I am more primitive.
Yes, it is the primeval palm crease from our way distant ancestors and it is common among the other primates. So, I know the truth.
Passing Of Microsoft Co-Founder, Paul Allen, At 65, Signifies The End-Of-An-Era; PCs Have Now Reached Old Age.
Wow. This came as a shock. 65. I think that struck a chord. Same age as me but eight-months older.
He always came across as a decent bloke. Nicer than Bill, I think.
It is the END of an era. PCs, Windows and Microsoft are no longer new or ‘recent’. They have all reached old age..
Paul Gardner Allen (1953 – 2018), RIP
