Garmin Fenix 5 & Vivoactive 3: Expect Some VERY Good Deals In The Next Couple Of Weeks.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. Do a Google search (SHOPPING) on ‘Garmin Fenix 5’).


This appeared in the Facebook “Garmin Connect Users” group over the weekend. Click to ENLARGE.


The Garmin Fenix 5 & Garmin Vivoactive 3 will be ON MAJOR SALE over the next couple of weeks. Pretty close to a firesale!

Somebody, as you can see from the image, so the Vivoactive 3 being sold at Walmart for $99. Soon, like this coming week, other will join in. You might actually find that some ‘smaller’ retailers have ALREADY sold out of Vivoactive 3s. (SMILE). Read between the lines.

The $350 price for the Garmin Fenix 5, today, should be just the beginning. The Fenix 5 and 5 Plus has already been obsoleted by the new Garmin Forerunner 945. So, this is not a huge surprise. Garmin’s do typically go on sale this time of year. Well I have given you a BIG Heads-Up. SMILE. Enjoy. Happy shopping.

I Have Become Totally & Hopelessly Hooked On “Ketchup Sriracha” Style.

by Anura Guruge


Target has it for under $3.00.


I happened to be passing the Walmart clearance shelves (in their food department) when my eyes caught this. I like Sriracha. I used to always order the Sriracha Burger at Friendly’s. Walmart had it marked down to $1.50 or maybe it was 92 cents. I just took it for the heck of it.

I tried a bit when I got home. It lit up my world. It is good. Really good.

Yes, of course, I like spicy food. Spicy food bothers me none. So, I am a natural for this.

I have been eating it on all sorts since.

Delighted to see that I can buy more, at a reasonable price, from Target.

You really should try it. It will spice up your world.

Shaving has been the absolute bane of my adult life. I suffer so when I shave. It is torture. I dread it.

Over the decades I have gone to extreme lengths to make it bearable. Cost never a consideration. I have tried them all: razors, blades, electric. And I have suffered mightily.

In December 2018 I bought one of these because it was supposed to be gentle on sensitive skin. To be fair, it was better than MOST. But, after just 4-months I could tell the blades were getting dull! That is the bloody irony. The skin on my face is ultra sensitive and soft. Much softer than that of a baby’s bottom and as a father of 4 who changed MORE diapers than any, I would know. Part of it is that I do pamper my face and have done since I was a teenager. I put more oil and cream on my face than any female! The rest of the skin on my body, especially on the palms of my hands, makes rhinoceros hide feel soft. And then there is my stubble. Like metal shards! Hence why the blades of electric shavers have little chance — and life.

The Gillette SkinGuard commercials on TV spoke to I. They described my exact dilema.

This was I. I had to try it. I owed to myself.

Last Thursday, while at Walmart I got one and now realize that bloody Walmart overcharged me. C’est la vie.

This morning I tried it with much trepidation. I wasn’t going to take any chances. I used both ‘Shave Secret’ and ‘Cremo Shaving Cream’ as a base.

Then I shaved. Hallelujah. It was good. I am sold.

Wow. I hope this solves my shaving woes. I sure hope so.

Thank YOU, Gillette. I will never bad-mouth you again (I hope).

‘Metamucil’ — The HUGE Difference Between “Real Sugar” & “Sugar Free”.

by Anura Guruge




When buying ‘Metamucil‘ or a store-brand equivalent (e.g., Walmart’s ‘Equate’) be very careful as to the sugar content you are getting. Basically there are two flavors: ‘real sugar’ & ‘sugar free’. The ‘real sugar’ version indeed contains a fair amount of sugar at the expense of dietary fiber. I am not really sure why somebody would want this — more sugar, less fiber. Maybe there are some applications for diabetics. Taste alone should not be a factor.

But, of course, it is up to you. Just be aware as to what you are getting. Read the label.

If you are cool with all that sugar go for it.

To I that is dangerous carbs and calories. Like jugging sugar-loaded soda. I prefer the ‘Sugar Free’. Just wanted to share this with you.

I Have Become Hooked On Yoplait’s New ‘Oui’ French Yogurt In A Cute Glass Jar.

Click to access the official Website ‘Oui’.


I stumbled upon these cute ‘Oui‘ jars, serendipitously, in Cambridge, MA, when we were there yesterday for ‘Revels‘.

I eat some form of yogurt each day and have been doing so for 20-years.

Of late I have restricted myself to plain, Greek yogurt to keep away from the sugar and sweeteners.

But, I had a strawberry-flavored ‘Oui’ as a treat. I was hooked.

Today, when I was at Walmart I went looking for them. Much to my delight they had some. I bought 5 jars … key lime, mango, blueberry and raspberry.

But, this will be just over Christmas.

I have been too chicken to even look at the label. I am sure it is ultra-high in carbs. Yikes. This is not good for me. But, I cannot resist.

2018 Christmas Lights Go Up 2-Days Earlier Than Last Year.

Teischan (12), unashamedly, lives for Christmas — and she was hell bent on putting up the Christmas lights today, having put up her personal Christmas tree yesterday.

As it transpired I had to make a trip with her to Walmart in Rochester to replenish our stock of lights. While we were at it we got a second laser light and a lighted flying pig.

So, this year November 18 vs. last year’s November 20. But, what a difference. Last year it was balmy and she was in shorts. This year we had 6″ snow on the ground and it was FREEZING. Given the temperature and the unscheduled trip to Walmart we didn’t get all the lights up today. I am sure they will all be done by tomorrow.
