The top one is from August 7, 2019 when hiked down to the ‘Nay Aug‘ gorge in Scranton, PA.

The other two were in Boston, from this past Monday, August 26, 2019, when we went to see the ‘Downton Abbey — The Exhibition‘. The bottom two, as must be obvious, taken ‘My Way‘.

Just a record for those that complain that I take all these pictures but rarely post any of myself.

‘Canon EOS RP’ Make Sure EG-E1 Extension Grip Is Screwed On Tight At All Times.

by Anura Guruge



Yesterday (Father’s Day) in Boston, at the New England Aquarium, I found that my ‘new’ Canon EOS RP kept on intermittently going DEAD! It was scary. Then it would come back on. I first thought it might be because it was so dark inside. I was really panicking. Had visions of having to send the camera back.

I changed batteries. Still …

Then, I noticed that the screw on the grip was loose. I tightened it. BINGO.

So, a heads up. OK?

I don’t want anyone else to go through what I experienced. Not fun. Not funny.

The Ugly Racist Incident At Boston’s Famed ‘Museum Of Fine Arts’ (MFA) Is Distressing & Unexpected.

It is BOSTON — the age old, U.S. bastion of liberalism, tolerance and culture. That is what gets me. I could understand this if it was in the South or even in New Hampshire! But, in dear Boston. What is happening? What has gone wrong?

And the MFA of all places. The lovely MFA! We had a delightful day there just over a year ago and I was hoping to visit again. This is upsetting.

From what I can see they banned two patrons. That is it. Claims that a ‘work study’ who was implicated has already left the country. I find that hard to believe. None of the staff has been fired? Not the security guard or whoever instructed the guard to be obnoxious. This is NOT right.

I am ashamed for the MFA. This reflects badly of poor, dear Boston.

2019 Chinese New Year – ‘Year Of The Pig’ – February 5th to 15th.

The Chinese New Year, 2019 — ‘The Year Of The Pig‘ — starts next week, on Tuesday, February 5.

The Chinese New Year starts after the 2nd New Moon — following the Winter Solstice. So, its start varies from year-to-year.

It usually continues for at least 2-weeks (in the U.S.).

Last year Chinese New Year started February 16th. So it is pretty early this year.

The festivities in Chinatown, Boston — i.e., the Dragon Parades etc. — per my recockning will be on Sunday, February 27, 2019. It is usually on the 2nd (and last) Sunday of that 2 week period and that is the 25th. I will keep you updated.

In the meantime, have a ball. Snuggle up o a pig.

Happy New Year.
