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.
George Pell (b. 1941, 78-years old) was convicted of ‘sodomy’
in December 2018.
He was given a 6-year prison sentence
with 3 years 8 months compulsory (i.e., no-parole).
He has been serving that sentence since at least February 2019 (if not earlier).
So, by a 2-1 decision (by a panel of three-judges) his current conviction was UPHELD, but he was given the option of filing an appeal with the ‘High Court’ — the final court of appeal in Australia.
Earlier in the year Pell had claimed that he WOULD NOT APPEAL if he lost the June 2019 appeal. He has LOST, but, he, of course, can’t be trusted. I am sure there will be another appeal.
But, he REMAINS in prison BUT, the good thing for him, is that the clock is inexorably ticking away. He has now served 6-months of his mandatory sentence. He could seek parole in 3 years and 2 months.
The Vatican and the pope are standing behind him — of, bloody, course.
I am a huge fan of Desmond Tutu. I think he is the cat’s whiskers. I know and appreciate what he has done and continues to do for South Africa, the world and the human race.
He is quite the man. He and my other LION, Nelson Mandela, were quite the team.
I did not realize that Meghan Markle routinely posts inspirational Desmond Tutu quotes on her Snapchat page. I just happened to hear about this quite today. It touched me. I liked it. It is very true. Very apropos. So, I wanted to share it with you. Read it. Think about it. Live by it. SMILE.
Being at the right place, at the right time. This, Alton Bay, at 6:40pm, Tuesday, August 20, 2019.
We were just idling along waiting 15-minutes for our Chinese takeout order to be prepared at J.P. China.
There were two of them, but I only managed to catch one. Heard them before I saw them. Quite the roar.
I have seen plenty of microlights over the Lake in my three-decades up here — but, to be fair, I hadn’t seen any in a long time till today. Neat. Made my day.
Teischan (13) was with me. She claims she can’t remember seen one before. So, I am glad she got to see two. Enjoy.
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.
