Silicone Charge Port Protector For The Garmin Vivoactive 3.

The annotations, including the picture of the plug, are MINE.


I was idly looking at replacement bands [i.e., 20mm quick release bands] for the Vivoactive 3 — the slate version I want supposedly going to be available as of Friday, October 20, 2017 — when Amazon showed me these charging port protectors. I immediately saw the point in getting one. I knew that the charging port was susceptible to corrosion and I do have fairly corrosive perspiration. I checked the Owner’s Manual. Bingo! Corrosion is a concern.

I really didn’t want 10 in an assortment of colors. I would rather have had just one or 10 that were all black. But, c’est la vie. You will see it for slightly less — BUT that is without Prime. I ordered these because it was Prime.

I think Garmin should include such a plug as standard! Don’t you. But, until they do, it might be worth getting some of these.

Wolfeboro Adult Education: One Of The Better Pictures From The “Mobil Photography” Class Of September 26, 2017.

It was taken with a Nikon D500 DSLR. They had to go to Concord to get that picture. It was bit of a hike and the light wasn’t optimal by the time they got there. It might have been better if they shot this Mobil station with a mobile phone. What do you think?

Wolfeboro Adult Education — Proposed Spring 2018 Class, “Leveraging Incompetence”.

Appears that there is a demand for this — this being the Wolfeboro area. Appears incompetence big around there. I am always game. Maybe we will get the minimum requisite quorum of 2 for the class.

Per the requirements of Wolfeboro Adult Education any and all typos, apparent or not, may or may not be intentional. As always, as is invariably the case with Wolfeboro Adult Education, everything is meant to be a game.

South African Quinton de Kock’s 168* Against Bangladesh In The 1st ODI Was Brilliant. Scintillating.

I have been publicly raving about young Quinton de Kock for over 2-years now. From the first time I saw him, in an ODI, I recognized at once, that he was a rare talent — and it did not require any genius on my part to do so. This ‘boy’ exudes class, confidence and competence. He can bat and his wicket-keeping is pretty special too. South Africa is very lucky to have him.

His innings, with my other perennial South African favorite, Hashim Amla, was amazing. They both paced themselves so well. Quinton, one way or another, got most of the strike, 145 balls to Hashim’s 112. I don’t think Hashim minds. Now that he is getting older I get the feeling he is quite content to accumulate runs, slowly, and keep his end up.

Before we even got to the halfway mark of the South African innings I kind of felt that this was going to be a 10-wicket victory — as it was. But, they did drop Quinton, on the boundary, right at the end when they only needed like 6 more runs. That would have been sad. But, luck prevailed.
