There was NO way we were NOT going to get our picture taken at this SUPPOSEDLY the last performance of ‘THE circus‘ in Manchester.

We were trying to work it this morning as to how many performances we have gone to. It is definitely at least 8 years in a row.

Kind of sad. I, however, think they will be back within 2 years.

Stay tuned. Many more pictures to post.

Ringling Brothers/Barnum & Bailey May No Longer Have Elephants But The Kora Shrine Circus DOES!

by Anura Guruge


From their Facebook page (www.facebook.com/korashriners). And I think this is RECENTLY. They had 3 performing today (Saturday) in Augusta.

From their Facebook page. Looks colorful enough.


From their Facebook page again. I heard that Ringling have stopped doing the human cannonball too!


We were in Maine today, and Deanna’s niece had taken her 3-year old son to ‘the circus‘ in Augusta, Maine.

She was telling us all about it when she casually mentioned that ‘this year’ they had 3 elephants performing — whereas in past years they have only had one perform.

WOW. I grilled her. Appears that there were NO demonstrators, no protests.

Wow.

I checked it out as soon as I got home.

VERY different to Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey.

For a start they do a 9:30am show. That would be good for some kids. I heard, however, that the 9:30am show, in Augusta, on Saturday, April 22, 2017, was not even half full!

Their MOST expensive tickets — reserved seating — is only $12! I am not even going to tell you what we are paying for our tickets, in Manchester, for Ringling Brothers.

The elephant dichotomy seems incongruous.

Was it JUST Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey that were targeted? If so that would be unfair. How do we know that these other circuses treat their elephants any differently?

I need to research this further.

from the ‘American Pain Society’.


This is a very illuminating article. It will help you see your fibromyalgia in a whole new light. This is the latest and most up-to-date thinking and findings about fibromyalgia.

Don’t continue being misinformed about fibromyalgia. It is important that YOU know what fibromyalgia is all about. It is YOUR PAIN and you need to know the real story.

I do reference this article in my ‘Central Pain Syndrome‘ book. I found this article extremely useful and thought provoking.

If you have fibromyalgia, I really do urge you to read it. It will help you. Of that there can be no doubt or debate.

All the best.

‘The Ticket’ (2015) Movie: Predictable But Sobering, Modern Day, Non-Religious Parable That Wasn’t All That Great.

by Anura Guruge


Click image to access IMDb.com listing.


We watched it, without knowing ANYTHING about it, because I mistook the actor on the ‘poster’ (shown above) for ‘Matthew’ from ‘Downton Abbey‘.

He is NOT ‘Matthew’ but he does, on occasion, bear an uncanny resemblance.

This is NOT a ‘B-movie’. If anything it is like a D-movie.

Slightly interesting story BUT extremely predictable. You knew what would happen in the end, though you hoped they wouldn’t subject you to it.

Slightly sobering and it does carry a message.

I was worried it was going to a ‘God movie’. It wasn’t, though God does get mentioned.

The title refers to a fairly well-known ‘joke’ THOUGH I can say it better!

Not recommending it. Just documenting it because I did watch it.

THE Circus. Ringling Brothers/Barnum & Bailey, Coming To Manchester, NH, For The Very Last Time This Friday.

This is going to be SAD.

Yes, of course, we have tickets. {SMILE}

We have been going to this circus, in Manchester, without fail, for the last 7 or 8 years. It was a cherished annual ritual.

I will miss it. It was always fun. Often quite the spectacle.

Yes, we noticed that the audience size kept on shrinking. I worried that they would stop coming to New Hampshire. Never expected them to close shop altogether. Ironically there has been a RUN on the tickets for this last appearance. Typical.

I suspect ‘they’ will be back, in a few years, under another name with a scaled-down operation.

Of course I will let you know how it was.
