This Square, 3-Time Zone, $55 WOLXS Watch, Is So Stupid & Ugly That It Makes Me Smile.

Google, Facebook & Amazon knows that I like watches — though they haven’t, as yet, worked out that I, for the last 2.5-years, have only worn Garmin smartwatches.

So, it was no surprise that this watch started popping up on my Facebook timeline. Initially I thought the top display was that for an analog radio. Then I had a closer look.

Stupid and ugly. Yes, I have three time zones on my Garmin Fenix 6s BUT I do not need three physical faces. Three presses of a button is good enough.

WOLXS claims that this watch was initially priced at $155. That has to be a joke. It is $55 now, and even that is $40 too expensive.

To be WOLXS has some other semi-decent watches.

Just wanted to share this with you.

It Is Greedy & Unscrupulous Indians Like This, Seema Verma, That Gets All Of Us Brown Folks A Bad Rap.

This is such a shame and travesty. Why?

Just so, so uncalled for. Yes, it is easy to have property stolen in San Francisco these days. We had our rental car broken into, and bags stolen, in San Francisco in 2016. But, we ‘played the white man‘! We claimed on our insurance. We didn’t try to rip off anyone.

This is so typically Indian — I am sorry to say. Avarice.

One trip to S.F. with $47,000 of luggage?

One item does make sense. $325 for moisturizer. Yep, that I believe. Indians love their lubricants.

Just distressed I. Why? Can’t folks do the right thing?

It just gets all of us brown folks a bad rap. I know. People take for granted that brown folks are always on the make — Apu to the lead.

If You Like ‘Oliver Mtukudzi’ (Or His Son, Sam) — Try Another Zimbabwean, ‘Marshall Munhumumwe’.

My bad. I had never heard of him or his band ‘The Four Brothers‘. My loss. And, I can’t believe this, as with Oliver & Sam Mtukudzi all these folks are dead too! Yikes. Zimbabwe!

So, all we can do is listen to them posthumously. What a shame.

As with ‘Sam’, YouTube brought ‘Marshall Munhumumwe‘ to my attention. I was listening to Sam and then I heard a new song, that I had not heard before, BUT was extremely catchy. It was Marshall Munhumumwe. Thanks YouTube.

Check out the 1st YouTube. What do you think. I will do more research in the next few days. Enjoy.

“Dunkin’ Donuts” Christmas ‘Peppermint Mocha’ Is A Waste Of Money; ‘Cumberland Farms’ A Better Option.

by Anura Guruge

I like peppermint. Simple as that. Peppermint is really the ONLY flavor I like in my coffee. So, come Christmas and St. Patrick’s I look forward to indulging in some peppermint flavored coffee — albeit limiting myself, at most, to two a WEEK.

When “Dunkin’” started aggressively advertising, on local radio, its peppermint for this Christmas I could not resist.

I will be honest, I do NOT like “Dunkin'”. I think they are overrated and, moreover, way OVERPRICED. I, 98% of the time, drink plain, non-fancy coffee. Why pay “Dunkin'” when I can get a LARGE cup at McDonald’s or a gas station, e.g., ‘Cumberland Farms‘, for a $1? That was rhetorical.

Well, today, I made an exception and regretted it. I bought a “Dunkin'” peppermint and it was GARBAGE. Even with my SENIOR discount it came to over $4. That is stupid — and I will readily admit that I was STUPID for buying it. That is IT. Never again.

‘Cumberland Farms’ has peppermint flavor for Christmas — 99 cents. I will stick with that.
