Herman Melville’s “Moby Dick” Was Published In The U.S., This Day, 166-Years Ago; November 14, 1851.

First U.S. edition, New York, 1851.

Inspiration, IF NOT basis, for Melville’s “Moby Dick”.


I have to confess that I am NOT sure whether I have ever read ‘Moby Dick’ in its entirety! Yikes. I know I have tried, but I have this distinct impression that I gave up — albeit, this from when I was a teenager (and, to be honest, I do not that often NOT finish a book if I start reading it).

That said I have read Nathaniel Philbrick’s “Revenge of the Whale” — and recently also watched the movie. I am a BIG fan of Nathaniel Philbrick and have read 3 or 4 of his other books.

Interesting that ‘Moby Dick’ was first published in London — rather than New York.

Garmin Vivoactive 3 In Slate (Gunmetal) — Amazon AGAIN Changes Availability!

by Anura Guruge


It was November 14, 2017 2-days ago!

I ordered one (again) — today. It is now saying November 20, 2017 delivery
— with 1-day shipping!


It is available 5-days sooner
from an Amazon seller (but NOT Amazon)!


The question I have is “The Play Better StoreGarmin using an alias.

I called their phone number. Closed for the day. I sent them an e-mail.

IF it is Garmin, I will go ahead and place order. 5-days is a lifetime!

That store is very Garmin heavy. Just the first few items they list …

Two days after they took down the listing for the Gunmetal Black (i.e., Slate) it is BACK AGAIN!

Now they are stating a Tuesday, November 14, 2017 availability — in stock. Last week I had seen November 11.

No, I have NOT pre-ordered one again. I will wait a few days.

Garmin is still saying 1 – 2 weeks.

I will, of course, keep you CLOSELY posted. I have skin in this game — for sure, for sure.

Today, Sunday, November 13, 2016 Good Time To Get A Look At Super, Supermoon Over New Hampshire.

by Anura Guruge


It will NOT be bad over New Hampshire tonight.

Try around 5:15pm looking East. Should be hard to miss.

Slight chance we might have some clouds tomorrow, Monday, November 14 — the main day so to speak.

Super, Supermoon On Monday, November 14, 2016 — Largest Since 1948 & Not Another Similar For 18 Years.

by Anura Guruge

For many this could be a once in a lifetime Supermoon, given that the last one of this magnitude was in 1948 and the next in 2034.

It all has to do with the fact that the Moon’s closest approach to Earth is NOT constant each month. It is closer to Earth some months than others. Multiple factors influence this, including the Sun’s gravitational pull.

Plus, a Supermoon is NOT an astronomical term. It is more a lay term and as such there is latitude in what is considered ‘closest’ to Earth. In any given month, for it to be a Supermoon the moon doesn’t even have to be at its closest point to the Earth for that month. It only has to be within 90% of the closest approach.

Hence why all Supermoon’s are not equal.

So the November 14, 2016 will be 229 miles (0.10%) closer to Earth than the September 2015 Supermoon.

Got that?

I just hope we have good weather that night.
