Amazon Prime Video REWIND/FF On The Roku APP Just Got Worse!

by Anura Guruge

If you use the Roku Prime Video APP to watch movies you will know exactly what I am talking about.

Do a Google on “prime video rewind on Roku“.

Basically it is IMPOSSIBLE to control REWIND or FF. It just goes haywire. You can’t just skip a few seconds back or forward.

Well, Amazon did something today.

It made it EVEN worse! Yep, no granularity whatsoever. Just all the way back, 10 minutes at a time or forward 20-minutes.

The Famed Alton (NH) Snow Camel, ‘Roger’, May Already Be History!

As I told you 3-days ago, Roger’s farm is for sale & I could not see any signs of Roger when I did some scouting from the road. I also recalled that I had not seen him in quite a while.

Then, Deanna managed to dig up the listing. It starts by talking of Roger, vis-à-vis Alton, basically in the past tense — viz., “ONCE …”

Very clear that Roger is no longer at the farm. That is pretty clear.

Not sure what the implications are.

What happened to Roger the Camel?

I appreciate how lucky I am — BUT then again, I walked 4-miles to see all these flowers. I am not, however, complaining. Glad to share them with YOU, Enjoy. SMILE.

Tonight’s Starry, Starry Night Sky, Above My Head, During My 11pm 1-Mile Night Walk.

by Anura Guruge

I am relatively lucky in that light pollution, ‘up here’, in the sticks, isn’t too, too bad.

Tonight was cloudless, moonless & the temp. in the mid-50s (F). Dark black sky. Ideal for the stars to shine.

It was mesmerizing. I just love to just look up, stare & wonder. It is amazing.

Took this with my Google Pixel 4 — using its ‘Night Sight‘. To be honest, I expected it to capture more stars. I tried twice. This was it. This, however, does NOT do justice to what I was able to behold.
