First of all NOTICE that it is January 10, 2020, in New Hampshire
and that she is in a T-shirt and 5:30pm!

Yes, it was 60F!


A lighted wand was one of the Christmas presents she requested along with 3 other hula hoops.

I researched and found the ‘poi balls‘. That was a surprise. She likes them, as I knew she would. I got two sets — one for the family (i.e., I) as well, but she has appropriated that set too. That is OK. SMILE. I know where they are and she lets me play with her toys. She knows which way her bread is buttered.

Smile.

Fun.

Keeps her happy.

This was the first time she was able to go outside and do it.

She worked it out today and was very pleased with herself.

You must have worked it out.

You need to have enough hair or wear a wig so that you can have a big bun on top of your head.

Thought it might amuse you. Amused I.

Enjoy.

Custom Homemade Holder For 13 Hula Hoops.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


Teischan (13) currently has 13 functional hula hoops (ignoring the ones that have gone out of shape).

Keeping them in one place, in the garage, without us continually tripping over them, or they falling on my Jaguar XJ8, was becoming a problem.

Today, we came up with a neat solution.

Once we worked it out, and found an acceptable spot in the garage it only took me a FEW minutes to implement it. Basically having to drill one hole through a 4″x4″. Used stuff I had at hand including the rubber tip from one of the 6 crutches I still have. Works beautifully.

I will be happy to tell you how to reproduce it. [No you don’t need two of them. SMILE]

Spur of the moment. Was not planned. I was out taking my daily photos when I caught her practising. She does not let me take too many pictures. So, I snapped 19 of these quickly. She is using 5 hoops. Maybe 6. She has another one coming. In total she has about 8 or 9. Maybe more.

Decided that stitching them into a quick, 20-seconds video was the best way to share them.

Enjoy.

So, So Happy That Boston Magician ‘Shin Lim’ Won “America’s Got Talent” (AGT) 2018.

AGT 2018 Performance at the Final
(this week).


Encore Performance at the ‘Results’ show
(on Wednesday of this week).

Click to ENLARGE and read. Yes, he is, of course, on Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shin_Lim


We have been hooked on him since the very first time we saw him on AGT a few months ago.

We have been rooting for him ever since.

One of the AGT judges, maybe Simon Cowell, said that he could end up alongside Houdini. And that is definitely possible.

I think he will, in a few years, he considered the GREATEST MAGICIAN of all times!

We so wanted him to win, but knew that a magician had never won AGT. Plus, he faced some stiff competition.

So, we were so, so happy that he won.

Can be no doubt or debate that he was a worthy winner. He is something else.

I will go to Las Vegas to see him. No question about that.

If you haven’t seen him, PLEASE, PLEASE watch on YouTube. This is MAGIC. He is MAGIC.

“Deserted Wolfeboro”, Before & After Photoshop Wizardry By Richard Byrd, Esq.

AFTER — Dick Bird’s Photoshop magic.


The ORIGINAL Image.


A picture taken recently, at 6:30am in the morning, of Wolfeboro, NH Main Street by Richard Byrd, a famous retired lawyer and software entrepreneur who now lives on Mirror Lake.

Dick kindly also provided this explanation:
“Look closely and you will see I removed the car, the sign in the middle of the road, and the electric wires going across the street.  I wanted a desolation, unspoiled look to the picture. Notice I actually lit the windows of the store that was behind the car.  The sky was slightly darkened and made more ‘ominous’ looking.”

Pretty amazing … right?

What you can do with Photoshop IF you have Dick’s expertise.
