Notice the “Donation Setting”.

ActiFace“, for Garmin, my preferred and default watch face on my Garmin Fenix 5 Plus, is at Version 7.1.4 as of October 11, 2014.

The icons have been changed. I think it looks better.

The BIG change, however, is that there is a “DONATION” setting — in Garmin Connect. Unless you ENABLE it YOUR user settings are NOT ACTIVATED. You don’t have to make a donation! You just need to acknowledge that you have seen the “DONATION” setting. I actually DID make a small donation. Only fair. It has to be a lot work. So, I was cool with that. I think we should only consider making a donation.

Here is the New Documentation.

I Paid My ‘Dues’, With Gratitude, To Wikipedia.

I guess it is ‘Fund Drive’ week at Wikipedia.

When I accessed Wikipedia on Wednesday, August 16, 2017, there was this BIG banner asking for a donation. I have ignored those in the past, but this time I felt that I really should contribute. I use Wikipedia EXTENSIVELY, at least once a day. So, it was only fair.

I am glad I did. While I invariably double-check Wikipedia information I am a GREAT BELIEVER that they are a handy and useful 1st source — to get me on the right track. Plus ‘they’ are getting better and better.

Just thought I will share this with you JUST in case it also inspires you to make a donation.

This was my 2nd Pow Wow in 6 weeks — the other having been the “Honoring Of The Elders” Inter-Tribal Pow Wow In Tamworth, NH on May 21, 2016.

It was GOOD. Very good. Loved it. Different, way different to the one in Tamworth. For a start it was much bigger, much larger attendance, more dancers and it was a custom-built venue for Inter-Tribal Pow Wows. The atmosphere and ambience was just magical. Beautiful grounds. Lots of trees and hence shady and cool thought it was a v. hot (mid-80s) day. As with Tamworth there was this amazing, palpable sense of dignity and serenity. Though there were at least 150 people about it was not loud. We got there around 2:30pm. The drummers were having a well-earned lunch break. So the only music was flutes and that was very soothing. The drums, when they started, were impressive. As was the signing.

I took a LOT of pictures. Haven’t had time to sort them all out. Just published these 18 to get us started. I can’t claim that these were my best shots. I just pulled out 18 in a hurry. I will work on publishing more.

Appears that they have more Pow Wows in August and September. I am going to try and attend at least one of these.

P.S., Entrance is by donation. That was neat since we only planned to spend 2 – 3 hours.

I thoroughly recommend this place and the Pow Wows. Enjoy.
