Chanukah/Hanukkah is a moveable feast. Depending on the year it can fall on any day between November 27 and December 26. See above image. 

Typically it falls on the same day, e.g., December 12, every 19 years. You can see that in the 2nd image. But, sometimes the gap can be 46 years or maybe 57.

Well as it happens the last time Chanukah/Hanukkah fell on a December 12 was in 1971. Some of you may not have been born at the time!

So, this is rather SPECIAL. Savor it. Talk about it. Comment on it. Work out who was born in 1971 …

A picture taken recently, at 6:30am in the morning, of Wolfeboro, NH Main Street by Dick Byrd, a famous retired lawyer and software entrepreneur who now lives on Mirror Lake.

In the interest of full-disclosure, one car was REMOVED through the magic of Photoshop. I cannot spot the doctoring. Not sure about the sky.

Dick gave me permission to share this with you all. Enjoy.

My Garmin Vivoactive 3 DIES, Totally, After Just 15-Days.

I left a review at Amazon. Click to ENLARGE and read. You will find it under ‘1 star’ reviews for the Garmin Vivoactive 3 at Amazon.

UPS return to “Heart Rate Monitors USA”. Managed to get it to a UPS drop-off before 5pm.

I am in SHOCK!

It had just stopped at 2:55pm. Frozen solid. Green heart-rate monitor lights not working and could not get them to come on.

Heart Rate Monitors USA“, from whom I bought it (via Amazon), was excellent. Lady called Jackie. E-mailed me a UPS return. Waited till I got it. Managed to JUST make it to the UPS drop-off before 5pm.

I am getting an exchange. That might have been a MISTAKE! I was in a panic.

This was so wrong.

I had worn it, non-stop, 24×7, since I received in Thursday, November 16, 2017.

Yesterday, was my day-off running and today (Friday) I had a breakfast meeting, in Wolfeboro, at 8:30am. So, didn’t go running either.

So, two days without running, GPS activated.

It was working fine in the morning. Working fine around 2pm.

Crazy busy day …

Close to 4pm, while typing on my PC, I looked at the Vivoactive to check the time. Said 2:55pm. Initially thought that I was doing better on time than I realized. Then it slowly dawned on me. That is NOT correct.

Totally FROZEN.

Read the Amazon review above. I plugged it into my USB port to see if I could jump start it. USB not working. Will not pair with phone. Bluetooth dead. HR monitor dead.


Not happy.
