5-more days on crutches. Will be glad to ditch them.

Doing OK. This was in Wolfeboro. I was getting ready to go for a walk along ‘Cotton Valley Trail‘ on crutches. I did some of it, but it was cold and windy.

As you might have noticed I am not shaving as much as I used to prior to the injury.

47th post in this “Taking Selfies My Way” series.

First The Indians Litter Space, Then Israel Litters The Moon!

by Anura Guruge

This from CNBC. Google for plenty more.

Yes, accidents happen.

But, it is a shame that we now have litter and debris on the Moon! Yes, on the Moon.

They are claiming that Mount Everest is now like a garbage dump. It would be a shame if we had debris all over the surface of the Moon.

Yes, of course, they didn’t want it to happen, but did they do adequate testing to really, really avoid a failure. I remember reading that their very first rocket burn failed due to a basic programming error. I, alas, did a lot of work with Israeli high tech companies during ‘dot.com’. I learnt that they are cavalier and rush the software. SMILE.

Well maybe it is time for the IAU to step in and start policing and regulating space shots — whether just orbital, to the Moon or Mars.

Drowning Death At ‘Acadia National Park’, April 11, 2019.

by Anura Guruge

From ‘Mount Desert Islander’, Maine.

Click to ENLARGE. From ‘Google Maps’ — where else?

An area that we are extremely familiar with. ‘Schooner Head overlook‘ is probably our favorite spot in Acadia. Invariably our first stop. So, we can identify.

It would appear that it was accidental, but they are not sure. He seems to have gone to the overlook ahead of Monday’s snowstorm. I can understand. We have watched storms in Acadia.

Shame. And the 2019 Season hasn’t even started.

James Eckert, Alton (NH) Shooting Victim, Supposedly Practicing As Chiropractor With Lapsed NH License.

by Anura Guruge

Click to access my April 6, 2019 post.

Click to ENLARGE. From above post.

From the April 6, 2019 Post:

♦ Lizette started working for ‘Sanctuary Bodyworks and Sauna‘ in Pittsfield, NH, as a chiropractor.

♦ James ran a chiropractic business, from home, in Alton, called “The Big Idea“. [I can’t find any details about it or whether he was licensed to practice in New Hampshire.]

I got this e-mail this morning:

They had a NH license from 2012-2015 which expired and were treating people illegally, accepting only cash or silver, of all things……….I am a chiropractor and checked with the state for this info and am seeing some of his former patients.

Pretty self-explanatory. However, I am not 100% sure whether this applies to both of them, i.e., James and Lizette Eckert. Definitely James.

I had a hunch given what I was learning about their M.O.

Working from home …

So, another negative.

He is not what I would call a pillar of society.

Garmin Fenix 5 Plus — A New Set Of Maps, Including TopoActive For U.S. & Canada, Now Available.

by Anura Guruge

When I connected to Garmin Express today, i.e., April 10, 2019, it told me that there was a new version of the maps.

I asked for the download. I was USB connected, so it didn’t take long. Not long at all. Under 5 minutes, I am sure.

Maps installed within seconds of I unplugging the watch from the USB cable. Tried the local maps. Seems fine.

This is just a heads up.
