I Am Replacing My Cursed Garmin Vivoactive 3 With A Butt Ugly Fitbit Ionic!

I hope I am doing the right thing.

But, after having TWO (2) Garmin Vivoactive 3s fail on me within 3-months I just couldn’t take it. ‘They’ all tell me I should get a Garmin Fenix 5. The Fenix 5 is clunky and does not have a touchscreen.

I have a history with Fitbit and it isn’t good!

But, there is NOTHING else out there, other than the Fitbit IONIC, that comes close to my needs — other than the clunky Fenix 5.

The Ionic is butt ugly. Even uglier than the Garmin Vivoactive HR that I replaced with the ‘3’ because the ‘3’ looks good.

Luckily I have my Samsung S3 Frontier to use as my dress watch.

So, I am done with Garmin for now.

I might be regretting this by Monday!

IF I could just get by till there is a Fenix 6.

January 31, 2018: Forget “Blue Moon Eclipse” In New Hampshire, Focus On The Supermoon.

by Anura Guruge

Blue Supermoon over New Hampshire Wednesday, January 31, 2018 Anura Guruge

Base skychart, as ever, from “neave.com/planetarium” — with much appreciation.

Forget the “Blue Moon Eclipse“. It will NOT be a total eclipse in New Hampshire. Nada.

It will be partial, it will be early in the morning, the moon will most likely be BELOW the New Hampshire tree line and it will be fleeting.

It really is a NON-EVENT in New Hampshire.

The Supermoon — a Blue Moon at that — Wednesday evening is a whole different matter.

It will NOT be Blue. Sorry. ‘Blue’ denotes rarity — 2nd full moon in a month.

It will not be as near to us as the 1st one on January 1, 2018.

Clouds, always a problem in New Hampshire, might be a problem.

But, definitely go out, tomorrow night and have a gander. You might even see it through the clouds.

Donald Trump Interview With Piers Morgan — The Complete Transcript For Your Edification.

by Anura Guruge

Click image to access the COMPLETE, word-by-word transcript of the interview from “The Spectator”.

This is worth reading. It gives you some insights into his state-of-mind, thinking, CONFUSION and an amazing degree of ignorance.

He is not an articulate or elegant talker. The English is fractured and tortured. Far from presidential, let alone mature.

Kind of scary.
