Talk about a blast from the past. I knew what it was. I remembered them from way back. Had to check to see the exact timeframe. 1985. Same year I arrived in the U.S. for ‘this stint’ — having previously come for one year in 1967.

Doctors and EMTs used them to send TEXTs! Kid you not. Early e-mail.

This TTY terminal probably still works if you knew the phone number of a computer that will support TTY communication.

Wow.

34-years old — or in that timeframe.

Wanted to share with you all.

Enjoy.

He is not in my pantheon of favorite painters BUT I do respect and admire his work — as one must. He sure had talent and knew how to use it. 411 years ago. Wow. That is a long time and makes you think. So much water has flowed under the many bridges in Amsterdam.

‘Live Aid’ THE Concert Took Place This Day 32-Years Ago — Have YOU Seen “When Harvey Met Bob”?

by Anura Guruge


“When Harvey Met Bob”

2010 movie about how Bob Geldof made “Live Aid” a reality.

Absolutely brilliant movie and you will see Bob Geldof is a whole different light.

MUST WATCH movie. IF you have never seen it, find it … and watch it. You will THANK me (but that is OK).

I saw it, serendipitously, a few years ago and loved it. Prior to that never been a huge fan of Bob’s though we were London contemporaries though I am not aware of ever bumping into him.


“When Harvey Met Bob” trailer on YouTube.

And yes, there is the “Live Aid” movie which is just the concert.

You can see the whole concert on YouTube. There are also DVDs.

Devanee & I went there on Friday to see the Jaguar XJS that was for sale. I was blown away. Lots of amazing stuff for sale in the Barn.

So we all want back on Saturday after the ‘Fairy House‘ festival. Very nice people and LOTS and LOTS of incredible stuff. I just wish I had the money. They really are selling the place and moving. So this is not one of those ‘fake’ sales. This is genuine. Good bargains to be had.

This is their Website: 1810house.net.

There phone number at the Barn is: 603-515-1765.

We got a hammock. Teischan has been asking for one for awhile now. Though we live on a dirt road, surrounded by trees we don’t have two trees on which to tie a hammock. So we needed a stand. This worked out. Teischan has already spent hours in it.

Deanna had seen it a couple of weeks ago and had told me that I should go check it out! Though she is NOT in favor of me getting anymore Jags she still is willing to let me look.

Devanee and I took a quick break from Friday’s ‘all-day’ “Blood, Sweat & Tears” setup, to go and have a quick look.

It is at 458 Center Street in Wolfeboro. The big “1810 House B&B and Antiques“. Ask for the son, Chris O’Brien. Chris normally lives in Pennsylvania. That explains the plates (and his phone number). Yes, you can call him on: 215-622-5841.

It is in good enough shape. I, of course, prefer the topless. But I am committed to helping Chris sell this. Word of caution. Chris does NOT have to sell it. So there will be a hard floor as to how far you can beat him down! SMILE.

P.S., the ‘HE’ stands for ‘high efficiency‘, i.e., better mileage.
