That U.S. Life Expectancy Has Fallen Is No Surprise To I — More ‘Non-Europeans’ Living In The U.S. Than Ever Before!

Seeing this, this morning, did not surprise me in the slightest.

Since the 1990s there has been a huge influx of Asians and other non-Europeans coming over to the U.S. Their life expectancies, genetically, are shorter. Just because you move to the U.S. your life expectancy does not change — THAT MUCH. Yes, better healthcare, access to prescription drugs and better diet helps but probably by, I think, 10-15%. I am sure that this the reason. I think the life expectancy in my Sri Lanka (Ceylon) is in the low 60s. So, I do not expect to live to be 85 though I have lived outside Sri Lanka since I was 14.

I got an e-mail this morning from Daisy Welch who very kindly sent me the link to this post — which provides access to all these hidden games (i.e.. Easter Eggs). As Daisy so cutely puts it: “perfect those with a little time to kill or who are the kings and queens of procrastinate in their office”.

Enjoy. Thanks, Daisy.

New Hampshire 2016 – 2017 Winter — Earliest Sunsets Are Here (Dec. 8), Spring Is Around The Corner!

The ‘Shortest Day‘, the ‘Winter Solstice‘, is still 2 weeks away.

But these, as you can see, are the EARLIEST Sunsets of the 2016 – 2017 winter.

The reason the days are still getting shorter is that Sunrise continues to be later and later.

But, this is IT in terms of early Sunsets. It will never get any later.

In a week, December 15, we will have an ADDITIONAL MINUTE in the evenings.

Great news. Spring is around the corner. Rejoice!
