It sure is entertaining, amusing and amazing,
but what really sets it apart gratifyingly
is that it is
uplifting, inspirational and morally rewarding.


In these disturbing times
Circus Smirkus
is a welcoming oasis
of hope, promise and fortitude.


Circus Smirkus
at its conclusion
brings tears to my eyes —
what these KIDS manage to achieve is so wonderful,
their parents must be so, so proud (deservedly).


This was the second time we have seen them. The first was exactly a year ago, to the day — also in Wolfeboro.

We were blown away last year and I vowed that I will be back — not just for the show, but also to show our support and gratitude.

It was good last year, and I thought it was even better this year, though on the way home we worked out that they did not have the tightrope walking in high heels which was world class.

All of this year’s acts, including the comedic interludes, were extremely well done. Bravo. Kudos.

It is easy to forget that these are just kids, school kids. Not professionals and, moreover, that they put this astounding show together in 18-days. 18-days!

I was in awe last year and I am in awe again this year.

Yes, I am a circus aficionado who has seen a lot of circuses including Barnum & Bailey (at least 9 times), Cirque du Soleil (at least 4 times), Big Apple (many, many times) & the famed Moscow Circus (in Moscow in the 1970s). In terms of raw entertainment Circus Smirkus is as good! In terms of ‘feel good’ vibes — it is better than all of them!

Yes, I am a fan, a BIG fan of ‘Smirkus’. A wonderful endeavor. Something we can all be proud of.

Thank YOU, Smirkus.

MRI-Based Research Into How & Why Women’s Breasts Bounce As They Walk!

As soon as I saw this in the U.K. “Daily Mail” (which I scan multiple times a day) I knew I would be remiss if I didn’t share it with you.

You have to hand it to us Brits. Not only did we invent the very meaningful ‘Standard British Handful’ (SBH) measurement for breasts, but we are also indefatigable when it comes to researching anything and everything related to the mammary glands.

When women are jogging or walking their breasts are said to perform a ‘Figure 8′ motion.breastmotionchart

Well this ‘Figure 8’ claims destroys one of my few worthwhile contributions to science and education!

Yes. Way back when I was 18 I came up with a memorable discovery that helped many get through the intricacies of college level physics. I claimed it was Simple Harmonic Motion‘ as I describe in this post.

Well this research my vindicate my assertions. I will try and keep you posted.

Deanna saw this on the Web and brought it to my attention. Never heard of them. They are NOT, I repeat NOT, the circus act that performed at the “America’s Got Talent” (AGT) semi-finals 1-hour ‘results’ show, on Wednesday, September 12, 2018. That was ‘A Magical Circus Christmas. They seem MUCH BETTER — but they are not coming to New Hampshire. These folks are.

About time we had a circus in Manchester. The last ‘Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey Circus‘, which we attended, was in April 2017. This is good. I hope they are halfway decent. We deserve that.

‘A Magical Circus Christmas’ Preview On AGT Had Us Hooked — Beyond Brilliant.

by Anura Guruge



Did YOU see it in this week’s “America’s Got Talent” (AGT) semi-finals 1-hour ‘results’ show, on Wednesday? They were NOT a part of AGT. They were an invited act to serve as a filler to stretch the show to 1-hour. To begin with, Teischan & I, both veterans and connoisseurs of circuses were a bit skeptical since we knew it was JUST a filler, i.e., padding, window-dressing. Then … Bang! Wallop! We were on the edge of our seats. They were GOOD. Actually quite brilliant. We both immediately compared them to what we had seen with ‘Cirque du Soleil’ & ‘Barnum & Bailey‘. We had seen similar at BOTH but these took them to new heights — quite literally!

They are going to be in Lynn, Massachusetts in December. I am going to try and get tickets. That would be fun for Christmas — of course, alongside our yearly ‘Revels’.

‘Circus Smirkus’, Wolfeboro, NH (August 12, 2018) — More Pictures From This V. Good Show.

I raved about ‘Circus Smirkus’ performance in Wolfeboro yesterday. So, I am not going to say much here because there really isn’t more I can say than: “please, go and see for yourself. You will be impressed & amazed“. This post is to share MORE pictures. However, the more I think about it and the more time I spend going back over the pictures the more impressed I am. It was quite the show — done entirely by kids. Not wizened professionals, kids who were going to school, full-time just a couple of months ago. I am sold.

‘Circus Smirkus’, Wolfeboro, NH (August 12, 2018) — IMPRESSIVE, Worth Seeing!

This was not our accustomed Barnum & BaileyGreatest Show On Earth“, but it was a show and it was impressive and in the end humbling.

The tightrope in high heels was world class! Folks familiar with this blog know that we go to a LOT of circuses and have been doing it for years (and in my case most of my life). I have never seen this and that alone was worth going. Second big picture at the top. ENLARGE and look at it. That was special.

It was NOT bad at all. Actually, very impressive.

ALL KIDS ages 10 to 18. That alone makes it special. Then, right at the end the Ringmaster (who was very good) shared a nugget of information that blew us all away. The kids ONLY had 18-days, yes, 18-days, to put this whole repertoire together. That is mind-blowing. You know that circus acts work for years to get it all together. These kids pulled this off, with aplomb & panache, in 18-days. WOW. Bravo. They, of course, got a standing ovation.

Not what we are used to as veteran, annual attendees of Barnum & Bailey, but by the end we were enjoying this as much.

Yes, of course, I recommend it. Tad pricey for families. Cost nearly as much as I used to pay to see Barnum & Bailey in Manchester (but much of that is because I knew where the outstanding cheap seats were after we had been to the first few shows).

I took a LOT of pictures. It is too late to try and post them all tonight. I will work on them in the days to come.

P.S., They are in Wolfeboro, on Monday, August 13, 2018 too; 1 & 6pm. So try and catch it if you can.
