I have always said that going to ‘Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center‘ (DHMC), in Lebanon, N.H. is like visiting a resort rather than a high-end, full-function hospital. They go out of their way to make the environment soothing and pleasing to the senses. You are surrounded by very high-class art and if you are lucky, as I was this morning, with live music from a piano  player at a grand.

They had works by Milford (N.H.) artist ‘William Cheever Turner‘ on display in one wing. I had never heard of him and I wish I had. His work, as you can see, is quite spectacular. I took a few pictures so I could SHARE them with you. You have to check out his. The level of detail and realism is phenomenal.

It was a good day overall, and we were not there for anything serious. These paintings made my morning.

Enjoy.

THE Mandala Is Finished & The Price Has More Than Doubled!

Other than the circles, everything else is hand drawn.


Click to access post from just last week.


It is something to behold. It is blinking beautiful. Her most ambitious and, of course, best effort to-date — and she knows it.

So, a week ago she was going to sell it to I for $90. Today, she wanted $200. But, we had a deal. She is on the hook to sell it to I for $90.

I just need to raise the $90 in cash. That is all that she will deal in.

Enjoy.

Is This Mandala Worth $90 (U.S.)?

Other than the circles, everything else is hand drawn.


Yes, this is Teischan’s (12) latest. It is on one of the mounted canvases she got for Christmas. The detail on it is pretty spectacular. If you look very carefully at the middle circle you will see a ‘T’. That, for ‘Teischan’, is a trademark in all her mandalas. She knows I like it and today, at lunch, offered it to I for $90! I am torn. I really would like her to try and sell it online.

Well, at least I got her name right! I named her after the great Italian Renaissance master painter Titian.

This is from HER Website. Yes, she has had teischan.com since she was 12-hours old! The domain was registered 4-months before she was born!

THE Queen’s Christmas Speech 2018: Video, Full Text & Picture.

by Anura Guruge


The UK Sky News video of The Queen’s Christmas 2018 Broadcast
— on YouTube.



The Queen, at 92, looking radiant, extremely engaged & in great spirits.

The Broadcast, per the tradition, was delivered on British TV at 3pm GMT (10 am Eastern).

As ever it was ELEGANT, pertinent, informative,
and inspirational — with the trademark touches of humor.

My Christmas is not complete until I see the Queen’s Speech.

Very impressive, start to the video
— given that I LOVE “Christmas from King’s”.

ENJOY. SAVOR. RELISH.


The FULL Text of the Queen’s 2018 Christmas Broadcast.

“For many, the service of Nine Lessons and Carols from King’s College, Cambridge, is when Christmas begins. Listened to by millions of people around the world, it starts with a chorister singing the first verse of Once in Royal David’s City.

“The priest who introduced this service to King’s College chapel, exactly one hundred years ago, was Eric Milner-White. He had served as a military chaplain in the First World War. Just six weeks after the Armistice, he wanted a new kind of service which, with its message of peace and goodwill, spoke to the needs of the times.

“Twenty eighteen has been a year of centenaries. The Royal Air Force celebrated its 100th anniversary with a memorable fly-past demonstrating a thrilling unity of purpose and execution. We owe them and all our Armed Services our deepest gratitude.

“My father served in the Royal Navy during the First World War. He was a midshipman in HMS Collingwood at the Battle of Jutland in 1916. The British fleet lost 14 ships and 6,000 men in that engagement. My father wrote in a letter: ‘How and why we were not hit beats me’. Like others, he lost friends in the war.

“At Christmas, we become keenly aware of loved ones who have died, whatever the circumstances. But, of course, we would not grieve if we did not love.

“Closer to home, it’s been a busy year for my family, with two weddings and two babies, and another child expected soon. It helps to keep a grandmother well occupied. We have had other celebrations too, including the 70th birthday of The Prince of Wales.

“Some cultures believe a long life brings wisdom. I’d like to think so. Perhaps part of that wisdom is to recognise some of life’s baffling paradoxes, such as the way human beings have a huge propensity for good, and yet a capacity for evil. Even the power of faith, which frequently inspires great generosity and self-sacrifice, can fall victim to tribalism.

“But through the many changes I have seen over the years, faith, family and friendship have been not only a constant for me but a source of personal comfort and reassurance.

“In April, the Commonwealth Heads of Government met in London. My father welcomed just eight countries to the first such meeting in 1948. Now the Commonwealth includes 53 countries with 2.4 billion people, a third of the world’s population.

“Its strength lies in the bonds of affection it promotes, and a common desire to live in a better, more peaceful world. Even with the most deeply held differences, treating the other person with respect and as a fellow human being is always a good first step towards greater understanding.

“Indeed, the Commonwealth Games, held this year on Australia’s Gold Coast, are known universally as the Friendly Games because of their emphasis on goodwill and mutual respect.

“The Christmas story retains its appeal since it doesn’t provide theoretical explanations for the puzzles of life. Instead it’s about the birth of a child and the hope that birth 2,000 years ago brought to the world. Only a few people acknowledged Jesus when he was born. Now billions follow him.

“I believe his message of peace on earth and goodwill to all is never out of date. It can be heeded by everyone; it’s needed as much as ever.

“A very happy Christmas to you all.”

Sunday, October 7, 2018 — just 7 pictures.


Last year their Website went down and folks relied on me to provide the schedule. No problemo. That is why I am here. I doubt whether they will have server troubles this year. They learn fast.

But, I have already seen that many of you are coming here looking for the schedule. You know I only live to please. So, here is the schedule.

Yes, we will be there. See you there. I am easy enough to spot. The ONLY brown guy there.

Nikon’s Detailed Brochure For The Z6/Z7 Is Worth Studying — Download It Here.

by Anura Guruge


Click image to download Nikon’s original brochure in (safe) PDF form. It is 16MB.


Click to ENLARGE. Useful MINI tutorials.


Click to ENLARGE. More examples of all the built-on ‘Creative Controls’. I like the ‘red’ and might use it.


I noticed that folks on the ‘DPReview.com‘Nikon Z’ forum mentioned this brochure often (– justifiably as I now appreciate).

So, this morning I went looking for it. Got it from the Nikon Website. But, you can download a copy directly from here. That way you can buy yourself a few seconds and dive straight in.

I need to study it further — but I will have plenty of time. I do NOT plan to get my Nikon Z6 till after Christmas. I want all the holiday craziness to be over and for Nikon to have got rid of its first batch. I can wait. The Sony a7 II is still doing good.

I will keep you posted.

“African Festival Of Boston” (AFOB) — “Boston Commons”, Sunday, August 26, 2018.

We stumbled upon this VIBRANT Festival, serendipitously, on Sunday when we went to Boston for Dim Sum at the China Pearl. Our new routine, as of earlier this year, is to leisurely perambulate through the Commons & the Park after the meal to help digest it. In the Commons & at the Park you never know what you will come across. It is always fun and there are always so much going on.

I wish we had known about this festival beforehand. We would have skipped Dim Sum and had some of their food instead. It looked and smelled divine BUT I was beyond full.

It was fun. Great music and dancing. Bravo. Everybody seemed to be having a great time. Beautiful day. I am glad for the organizers. Maybe next year I can time it better.
