Scottish ‘Kris Kristiansen’, Now Gracing Maine, Is Quite The Seascape & Lighthouse Painter.

Yes, of course, I met him in the main parking lot at Fort Williams during our visit on Friday, May 28, 2021. Of course, I had to go see; of course, I had have a little chat. As soon as he spoke I knew he was Scottish. That to I, an adopted Scot of long standing, was a thrill. He is quite the artist & quite the man. Impressive.

Other than a very-credible self-portrait most of the work he had on display, quite rightly, had to do with Fort Williams & its iconic & historic lighthouse — the oldest in Maine. I liked his work so much that I bought two paintings.

I wanted to bring him to YOUR attention. Check him out. You will NOT be dissapointed.

‘Amazfit’ ‘T-Rex Pro’ Smartwatch, Even At Today’s $155 Is WAY TOO Pricey, It Should Get Down To $55.

As far as I am concerned Amazfit blew it. They had a great chance 2-years ago with the ‘Verge’ but their software, both on the APP & on the watch, were beyond autocious. They have managed to improve a BIT BUT I still see that they have issues — major issues.

Thus, Amazfit has become a 3rd-world watch — extremely popular, due to its flashy looks & relatively low prices, in India, China etc. It is not going to make it big in the U.S.

The soon to be announced Samsung Watch 4 & the rumored Google Pixel watch will further elbow them out of the U.S. market. No great loss.

But, if the price gets down to $55, which it very well could do, with the availability of the Samsung Watch 4, then it might be worth considering. SMILE.
