50 degrees on December 10 2019 New Hampshire Anura Guruge


Yes, we were told to expect it and it was 48°F (9°C) when I went for my 11pm perambulations.

Having 50°F days in mid-December is COOL! Melted most of the snow — and ALL of it off the roof. I like that. I have raked the roof yesterday to help with the melt — so it all worked out. All my lights — lasers and tikis — that were on poles stuck in the snow fell over. Had to use a hammer and ‘stake’ to make new holes in the frozen ground, BUT I am no complaining.

Yes, there is a snow storm coming BUT for the 2nd time — and twice in succession — it is a Southern storm. That means we will not get much snow. Folks South of us will get the brunt. I am OK with that. Wouldn’t you be.

Check out this video. It does show SOME of the
mind blowing trampoline act (towards the middle).

I think you might have worked out from my title that I was impressed. Actually, I was beyond impressed. These 8 ‘kids’ (and they are YOUNG and there was only 8 that were on stage) redefined brilliance and I am not exaggerating or kidding. Wow. Wow. Wow.

Their talent, individually, collectively & synergistically is so awesome that it is humbling.

We go to a LOT of circuses — at least once a year, and we try to go to the BIG ones, whenever we can, like ‘Cirque du Soleil‘ and ‘Barnum & Bailey’. Just do a search on this blog. So, we have seen a lot of acts over the years. And these, by these 8, were UP there — way up there. And as you can see from the program (above) four of them have been with ‘du Soleil‘.

Their ‘vertical’ trampoline act is the BEST we have seen and we have seen it done by ‘du Soleil’, ‘Barnum & Bailey’ and others. The best, by far. They were brilliant.

The juggling. Out-of-this-world.

The magical piano player who did so much and was so integral to all the acts. Amazing. What it says in the program is TRUE. A generational talent! The whole piano ‘thing’ is very clever and cute. It is one of their props. It is no ordinary piano. It has a lot of electronics and an umbilical cord that is pretty hefty. I found this for you on YouTube. It gives you a glimpse of his talents but just a glimpse.


It is a proper circus. They do multiple, diverse acts and per circus lore even throw in a comedy, clown skit between the main acts. Very clever and very cute.

In addition to ‘brilliant’, ‘astounding’, ‘amazing’ a couple of other words that invariably come to mind are ‘cute’, ‘clever’, ‘ballet-like’.

There was only one disappointment — it was just 1-hour long! Halfway through I suspected that this would be the case. Nonetheless, it was kind of upsetting to be proved right. Given the amount of energy they expend they couldn’t, realistically, have stretched it out to 2-hours. But, they have to see how they can make that happen — with an intermission to break it up.

That said, HIGHLY, highly, highly recommended with no caveats. If you can catch them, do not forgo the opportunity. You will be amply rewarded.

Without dear, beloved, all mighty Sol we would be NOTHING.

I have always appreciated that everything is only possible because of mighty Sol.

I have been a sun worshipper most of my life — at least since I was a teenager and was able to work out what is what.

When I entered ‘Mill Hill’ and had to declare my religion I wrote, with pride, ‘Sun Worshipper‘.

So, here I am. Making sure that Sol knows that we AWAIT his return.

All 3 2019 Christmas Trees Are Now Lit — Big 2 Still Need To Be Decorated.

They will look much better when fully decorated. That will be in the next two days. Today was just the lights.

The little, artificial tree is decorated but has new ornaments added daily — partly because the 2019 Lego ‘Friends Advent Calendar’ is doing tree ornaments this year.

I will keep you posted.

I Went For A Walk In The Snowstorm Last Night & It Was Entrancing.

Part of my latest ‘fitness’ (if you could call it that when it applies to I) regime is walking at night. I was not going to let a ‘little’ snow stop me. It was enchanting. I always feel so privileged and blessed. I live for moments like this. This is peace. This is happiness. Costs me nothing. I don’t need a gym membership. Just some decent boots and crampons on my walking stick. SMILE.

This was around 11pm last night. It had been snowing for about 2 hours. I went out for a walk in the snow — and it was BLAST. Took these pictures on my way out and on the way back. The house is like a BEACON in the dark. SMILE. Enjoy.
