Some of the DETAILS.

Trump wants 2019 — ahead of the 2020 presidential elections — to be remembered as a year of CELEBRATIONS. The mighty preparations for the HUGE parade and party, in D.C., for the 4th of July, is already well under way. May World leaders, including Russia’s Putin, have already been invited.

Now, Trump wants to finish off the year with an over-the-top Christmas extravaganza. One that will be talked about for CENTURIES to come. He wants it to be the BIGGEST and BOLDEST ever. Even bigger than the first one. Cost is not going to be an issue. No, the poor taxpayers are NOT going to be paying. It is going to be easily, but lavishly, funded by Trump’s many rich friends and followers.

This will be quite the thing. D.C. will be mobbed.

Do NOT Get A Home Inflate Helium Latex Balloon Kit Without ‘Hi-Float’ Balloon Treatment.

Click to ENLARGE. Kits do NOT include ‘Hi-Float’. Repeat. Do NOT include ‘Hi-Float’. Buy it separately. Otherwise a total waste of money and PRECIOUS Helium.

A ‘High-Float’ product page from Amazon. About the BEST price and it is Prime. Click to access.



Teischan had a Pre-Birthday party and sleepover Friday/Saturday — her birthday being this coming week. She wanted lots of balloons and so Deanna bought one of those Home Inflate kits, at Walmart, when she went shopping for the party supplies. We had bought one quite a few years ago and it had been quite a hit. At around $40 Deanna figured that it was a bargain given the 50 balloons included — at 80 cents a balloon.

These balloons, as it CLEARLY states on the box, lasted around 8 hours.

They pathetically deflated after that. And it says that on the box. Very clearly and both Teischan and Deanna had seen it.

This confused and UPSET me. I had discovered to my horror, 4 years ago, that the World was running out of Helium!

So it bad enough that we are using precious Helium for party tricks BUT WORSE that we lose that Helium within 1/3 of a day!

I knew something was not right. Latex balloons you buy at supermarkets etc. last 3 to 4 days, if not longer (and yes, Mylar balloons lasts even longer).

So, as ever, I Googled.

That is when I discovered ‘Hi-Float‘. Now it ALL makes sense. The latex balloons have to be sealed.

Got it? Just trying to make sure that we all get more for our money and the best out of the Helium we have. (Yes, I know it is the 2nd most abundant element in the Universe BUT we haven’t yet figured out how to extract Helium from outer space).

I have been hankering for a ‘powerful’ compact to augment my Panasonic Lumix FZ1000. [Check out my FZ1000 blog for new pictures.] I want a small camera that I will carry around as much as possible — possibly even on my run.

That is why I was considering the new, quite impressive Canon G5 X.

But since I bought, last August, a refurbished Canon Rebel T3i, from Canon, they send me quite a few offers a week hoping to tempt me into buying another Canon from them. I got such an e-mail today. I knew that there would be no discounts on the G5 X. But I was curious what they had. It was a 3-page e-mail. Then I saw this $269 offer on page 3.

Of course it is NOT perfect. But neither was the FZ1000. All cameras are a compromise. But for $269 I can AFFORD to compromise quite a bit. What swung the deal is that it has a BIG sensor, even slightly bigger than 1″. So for $269 I am willing to give it a try. The cheapest I can find on Amazon is $358 — for used. Refurbished from Canon, I think, is a better deal.

I will keep you posted. So now I will have the challenge of trying to master two new cameras in tandem.

Well the kids love it and this, in Alton Bay, was quite the party for the kids. They go all out. Teischan was lucky that she got to go — albeit this is her best friend going back to pre-school. We still haven’t got around to making her costume for this year. So she gladly wore last year’s — and she WON the ‘best costume’ award. She was chuffed. Well, here is to Halloween 2015.
