‘Lost & Found’ (2019) Irish Movie — Alas NOT Another ‘Waking Ned Devine’.

There have been quite a few good — and in some cases outstanding — movies that have come out of Ireland. This is NOT one of them! Though billed as such, it is definitely not a comedy and nowhere close to being another ‘Waking Ned Devine‘. And it is also not ‘Crying Game‘ though towards the end I was nearly ready to cry that I had wasted my time watching this tripe.

What drew me to it was the ‘7 interconnected stories‘ pitch. I like that genre and as you must know there have been some very clever and compelling movies of that type. This, alas, is not one of them.

Not a clever movie. Not profound in any aspect. I might even say it was bloody awful.

I did, however, enjoy seeing the trains! Never realized that they had such fancy and large (as in length) trains in Ireland. Also freight trains full of wood. Wow. That was about the highlight.

Do not get me wrong. It might appeal to some. Not I. So, I just wanted to give you a heads up on that. SMILE.

It was FREE. So, all I lost was 90-minutes of my time and some dignity — though I did do 23-minutes of pedaling my stationary bike while watching this. So, it wasn’t time totally wasted.

If you have NOT noticed Garmin tends to focus on analog watch faces. To I that is so, so, so passé. Though I am old enough to have grown up with ONLY analog watches I no longer see any merit or joy in analog — ANYTHING (other than maybe vinyl records). I like to glance at my watch and see the time as it is, i.e., in DIGITAL.

I also like to see SECONDS. Not that it matters that much, but it seems a waste not to be able to see it because there times when it is nice to see time ticking away without having to activate a timer.

Finally with ‘Digital Boost‘ Garmin has given me a watch face that I like and will use!

Prior to this I always used ‘ActiFace‘ (below). No guarantee that I will not be going back to ‘ActiFace’ gives me EVERYTHING I want. I love ‘ActiFace’. But, I also would like a change.

Yes, ‘Digital Boost’ should, ideally, offer more customization. I, for one, do NOT need a ‘Move’ bar. It would be nice to plug-in sunrise/sunset somewhere.

But, this is a start. Wow. Thanks Garmin.

‘ActiFace’ as I use it — customized.

Happy Thanksgiving 2019 From Anura Guruge.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Appears that we in New Hampshire, for a very rare change, lucked out. Some strong winds (and yes, we could lose power) but no snow or bitter cold. Not so many of you in other parts. Sorry. Stay warm & safe & enjoy the turkey.

There is nothing that says you shouldn’t THINK at Thanksgiving. If anything it is a good time to THINK. You can’t be THANKFUL unless you THINK.

At some point please make a point of giving THANKS that you still can THINK.
