Taken the last couple of days in Alton, New Hampshire. Not unusual to start seeing definite signs in August. I have seen fall foliage in July. The last few nights have been ‘cool’ — i.e., 60s. That will get the juices retreating. I as ever will keep and eye and share with you. That is what I do,

Teischan (13) currently has 13 functional hula hoops (ignoring the ones that have gone out of shape).
Keeping them in one place, in the garage, without us continually tripping over them, or they falling on my Jaguar XJ8, was becoming a problem.
Today, we came up with a neat solution.
Once we worked it out, and found an acceptable spot in the garage it only took me a FEW minutes to implement it. Basically having to drill one hole through a 4″x4″. Used stuff I had at hand including the rubber tip from one of the 6 crutches I still have. Works beautifully.
I will be happy to tell you how to reproduce it. [No you don’t need two of them. SMILE]
Spur of the moment. Was not planned. I was out taking my daily photos when I caught her practising. She does not let me take too many pictures. So, I snapped 19 of these quickly. She is using 5 hoops. Maybe 6. She has another one coming. In total she has about 8 or 9. Maybe more.
Decided that stitching them into a quick, 20-seconds video was the best way to share them.
First time I have ever experienced this — in 20+ years of buying (and sometimes returning) items from Amazon.
But, I can’t return this? It is neck heating pad. Yes, a heating pad for the neck. NOT ELIGIBLE for return!
I am not devastated. SMILE.
There is a story behind this (of course).
I was doing research for a good friend who is BIG TIME 3rd party (3P) seller on Amazon. He was discovering all sorts of crazy stuff and wanted a non-Amazon vendor to check out certain policies. Well, we nailed this one. It was as he had thought. He just wanted an independent confirmation.
But, I wanted to share. Some of you could really run foul of this.
I have told Amazon that they should have a BIG WARNING, in red, on the product description that says “This Item NOT Eligible For Return“. Doubt whether they will do it.
Hampton Beach, New Hampshire Hit By A ‘Water Advisory’ For This Near Perfect Weekend, i.e., August 24, 2019.

They are going to be closed!
I suspect other places will be closed too. So, thinks might be a bit dodgy, though there will be those that will still be trying to make a quick buck.
Just check before you go. Maybe take your own food and drink.
Would NOT be a problem for me. I always prefer wine to water. But, this is NOT a joke.
Check if you were planning to go to Hampton this weekend.
You need a new Garmin APP
from the Garmin ‘Connect IQ’ Store.
Thanks to Amazon you can even have a 30-day FREE trial — Amazon hoping to snare you into Prime.
I am NOW a believer in Prime. I wasn’t for the longest time. I always ordered enough (e.g. $25) to get free-shipping. Then, maybe, 6-years ago, maybe earlier I finally signed-up.
Now I am a Believer.
Full disclosure. I am also a long-term Amazon shareholder. SMILE.
But, I watch a fair amount of Prime Video. That, in my book, pays for itself.
Anyway, this is BIG. Worth looking into.
For a start, I wasn’t sure whether any HBO or CINEMAX recordings I made will remain when the preview ended (which was today).
So far, so good but I will feel more confident tomorrow.
I think it was when I had DISH. DVR recordings only worked provided you still had the channel. So, any recordings you made disappeared when the preview ended. They tried to get you to sign-up for that channel.
As far as I can the TDS TV preview ended today. The HBO and Cinemax channels no longer appear on the Guide.
But, the FEW recordings I made are still there — and they play.
So, hope this helps.
