Yes, I did get the LegoFriends” 2018 Advent Calendar. It would have been a shame to break what had been a 4-year tradition. I did not give it to her till this morning. She was surprised. She had assumed she would not be getting one this year as she was too old. Well, that was a treat. But, I have warned her that this could be IT. The box clearly says ‘6 – 12’ and she will be 13 next Advent.

Different to the other Lego calendars. No scene to set up. Each gift is a Christmas ornament for a tree. See last image. It was a red heart that you have to assemble. So, each day a new ornament to make. She likes it. LUCKILY her personal Christmas tree was up. So, that was perfect. They could go straight up on that.

So that is what the 2018 Lego Advent Calendar looks like.

My ‘Garmin Fenix 5 Plus’ Is Now At Software Version 6.0.

From Garmin Forums.

Downloaded automatically, without I even noticing it, when I plugged my Fenix 5 Plus into my computer on Friday night, November 30, 2018. Couldn’t have been a large download. By the time I fired up ‘Garmin Express‘ it must have been already downloaded because I did NOT see it updating on ‘Express’.

Only realized that there was new software once I unplugged the USB-cable and a message came up about the new software that has been downloaded.

Have not noticed ANY changes, whatsoever, as yet.

I went looking for what changes had been made. Refer to 3rd image above. I am NOT blown away. Nothing that applies to I. Hhhmmmm. I am sure they fixed various ‘small’ issues that they are not telling us about.
