This is our default Boston McDonald’s. We invariably stop here, for coffee, healthy snacks and the bathrooms, both on our way in — and out — of Boston. It is so easy to get to off I-93 and the perfect distance from Boston (i.e., under 10-miles).

So, per routine, we stopped here, just after 4pm, yesterday, Thursday, December 19, 2019, on our way to ‘Revels’ in Cambridge.

They appeared by the emergency exit door as we were about to order. Wow. This is in Woburn, MA — not in the sticks of New Hampshire.

We were both amazed and impressed. So were some of the other customers. The staff seemed strangely ambivalent.

What I am surprised about the most. How come these have NOT ended up as chicken nuggets?

Garmin’s Acquisition Of ‘Tacx’, The Maker Of Indoor Bike Trainers Very Puzzling & Kind Of Stupid.

Why, or Why?

Does Garmin plan to add GPS to stationary indoor bikes? That is the kind of stupid thing that Garmin is likely to do these days!

Garmin is NOT in the indoor bike business and claiming that it is going to branch out into that sector is stupid.

Garmin has to stay with its core strengths: GPS and wearables!

This is stupid and I here talk as a longtime Garmin investor. So, I do have a right to be concerned. I have money in Garmin.

I was involved in a number of $100+ MILLION acquisitions in the late 1990s with Cisco — the then market leader in networking. We always worked on the adaje “don’t even think about buying a cow if you can get all the milk you need at a reasonable price”. Shame that nobody at Garmin knew of this basic rule of Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A). It is actually called the “Cow Rule”.

Garmin should be investing in health technology for its watches — blood pressure monitoring, diabetes etc.

Instead, it buys an unknown Dutch maker of indoor bike trainers. Blinking amazing. Typical Garmin.

This was around 6pm tonight. It was snowing quite hard — and there was a major accident down the road.

Teischan and I love seeing our red and green lasers bouncing off the snow flakes. Managed to capture it, fairly well, tonight. Pretty cool.

Had to clean the snow off the laser lens a few times. It was falling that heavy.

a snowy blue night in Alton New Hampshire Anura Guruge Sony a6500



Just after 6pm, with it snowing hard, I went out, just in my sweats, to take some pictures. Noticed that the sky was blue down the road. Kind of suspected that it might be police. So, had to have a look. About 300 yards. Walked out, in my sweats. The dogs followed, off lead. It was a police car. They had blocked the road — Prospect Mountain Road. 6 vehicle pile up below. I only managed to get one ‘acceptable’ picture. With the heavy snow and light, it was not easy.

The blue police lights reflecting off the snow was COOL. As you can see. Teischan came out looking for the dogs, with their leashes. That is her, at the top, coming back — the dogs still off their leashes. We went back — again, once I put on a jacket and boots. Crazy night.

I liked the blue sky.
