Garmin ‘MARQ Expedition’ Silicone Strap Is 22mm ‘Quick Fit’, BUT Is Different To Others.

The Garmin MARQ Expedition comes standard with a $199 Italian Vacchetta leather strap. It is very nice. Too nice, in my opinion, for everyday use, especially if you, like I, are in the habit of taking showers with your Garmin still on your wrist.

Luckily, Garmin includes, for ‘FREE’, an extra black silicone rubber watch strap. It is, in theory, a 22mm Quick Fit like those for a Garmin Fenix 5.

But, the strap is very different; everything about it is different. It has a raised shoulder and a bigger clasp. There is no gap between it and the watch. I like it.

My problem — I can’t find ANY other bands like it, even in black.

I have 5 Fenix 5 bands in different colors. They fit on the MARQ. But, they look different to the black band.

So, just a heads up.

Deanna saw this and took this picture in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, a few weeks ago. She worked out what it says, given that she had some context to go by.

ISED8M2 = I SEDATE Them Too.

He is talking about his patients!

There is something disquieting here. It would be one thing if this person talked about skills or speciality, e.g., ISTPAIN. But this seems to come close treading all over the hippocratic oath — though to be fair, as it clearly says, this is NOT a doctor. You don’t have to be a doctor to be a pain specialist in New Hampshire. A nurse can prescribe narcotics and even do some spinal surgery! Amazing.

I looked up the dictionary definition of sedation. It is: the calming of mental excitement or abatement of physiological function, especially by the administration of a drug”. Well this person definitely does that. No question about that. But is it something that you should brag about?

Think about it.

I was in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire — the Oldest Summer Resort in the U.S. — twice this last Saturday, October 25, 2014. Teischan had two ballet classes. During the first visit in the morning I walked 40 minutes up Main Street, all the way past the big cemetery and then ran down, in a hurry, because I thought I was going to be late. That gave me my hour’s worth of exercise for the day. On the second visit, when her class was just for 30 minutes I perambulated around the dock area with my Canon T3i. I knew that if I was lucky I might be able to get another picture posted on the N.H. State official Tourist Site, VisitNH.gov. Well I succeeded — my 6th picture that they have used since the end of September. So it was worth it. Here are some of the pictures. ENJOY. Wolfeboro is such a delightful town to walk around. Plan to do an hours walk, in the dark, on Thursday night.

I am surprised, but I think there is two factors at play — and the possible land mines per se isn’t one of them.

I think there are factions who want to show solidarity with the Browns given that paying taxes is not a popular pastime in New Hampshire. The other is the minimum $250,000 price tag. I think that is too high. IF I had any money I would make an offer to buy this place. Actually if anybody who has a say in this reads this they should contact me. I will BUY IT — for a price. The land mines worry me NOT. I know that the technology is available to have them cleared.

Also interesting that her dental office in prime Lebanon did not sell. Price again had to have been a factor.

That nobody sat in the 16 chairs provided for the potential bidders, to me, tells its own story. The good folks of New Hampshire do not want to be seen involved in this tax-evasion case. Good for them.

I gather they have played to great acclaim at Cate Park before. I don’t think I have seen them. I am still kind of undecided whether I am really a major ‘Bluegrass’ fan. I can listen to it BUT it doesn’t do as much for me as other genres. Not sure what our plans are for Saturday evening. I realize, to my horror, that we have ONLY been to one concert at Cate Park this Summer and that was to see “Annie & The Orphans“. Much of this, if not all, has to do with conflicts with ‘Great Waters‘ concert — and yes, ‘Huggins Fair‘. I had hoped to walk over to Cate Park during ‘THE Fair’ but that never happened and I am kind of curious that no notes drifted across from the Park. I have heard Cate Park concerts while doing ‘Huggins’.

Anywho … just a heads up. Seems like a nice band. Enjoy.

When we were at the heartwarming and as ever wonderful “Annie & the Orphans” concert last Saturday Deanna having done a customary, first-pass, tour of the Park came back all gushing saying “their is a band that you will want to see”. Deanna, plain and simple, knows what I like. She was referring to this notice she had seen next to the bandstand and taken a picture of to make sure that we had it for posterity. Of course she was right. I did not know of them but this was my kind of music. I am a sucker, of long and distinguished standing, when it comes to folk music and country. Throw in Western Swing and what is there NOT to like. Yep, I wanted to see them. But, alas and alack, I am NOT sure whether we will get to see them at Cate Park! Bummer cubed! But, I already checked their schedule. I will drive 2 hours, even to Maine to see them. I just listened to them on YouTube video (below). They gave me goose bumps. Wow. They are GOOD, good and GOOD. So, if you are within 40 miles of Wolfeboro, the Oldest Summer Resort in the U.S., on Saturday afternoon hoof it over to Cate Park. You will not regret it.
