Today’s “Nikki Haley necklace” related hits.


The very first time I saw Nikki Haley, on TV, with ‘that’ necklace I knew that people were going to be curious about it. So, I did a post about it on April 9, 2017.

That was just over a year ago. I have, to-date, had over 7,400 hits on that post — over 900 just today!

So, I was right in my contention that people would be curious and interested.

Given the interest, I have done a series of posts on this necklace. They have all attracted attention.

My hits go up whenever she is on TV — as she was today. Hence, the spike in hits.

Until today I had not bothered to check where I stood when you did a Google search on the subject. Wow. I was amazed, flattered and humbled. Thank YOU, Google. They do me proud.

Yes, I agree it is always difficult to gauge how truly objective a wine producer such as Georges Duboeuf can be about talking about a future wine. I am not sure whether they will ever come out and say point-blank: “this year’s vintage is going to be terrible, like vinegar”.

So, yes, we have to keep that in mind.

The 2015 & 2014 Beaujolais Nouveau, as I raved, were outstanding. Not sure we will get three years of outright winners in a row. But, we can hope. To be fair, the last two years were so good that we could even live with a vintage a tad below those. Yes, it is already making me thirsty.

Kind of, actually ‘VERY’, embarrassing that I did NOT know this — or try to find out about it sooner. Yes, my mea culpa and to MY cost. All I can say, in my defense, is that I expected ‘it’ — i.e., the SCHEDULE a post option — to be more obvious. To be fair to WordPress, ONCE I was told where it was, it is pretty OBVIOUS.

Not sure why I never Googled it! I guess I kind of assumed, wrongly of course, that I knew most of WP. Wrong.

This is GREAT. So many times I need to do posts AFTER a specific time — especially on the Papam blog when I am dealing with cardinals turning 80, as will be the case tomorrow. Now I can schedule my post to get automatically posted at midnight.

So, the bottom line. WordPress.com does have a good and powerful ‘SCHEDULE’ post feature. Thank YOU, WordPress.com.


The Saga Of My Digital Bathroom Scales — I Get A Rather Nifty ‘BalanceFrom’ Scales From Amazon With No Bells & Whistles.

Nice big display and I like what it reads, 168.4 lb. That is below my target 169.


When my much prized Ozeri packed up last Friday (and I could not get hold of their Customer Support by telephone) I had little choice but to get another scale since i have to keep track of my weight — now that I am diagnosed pre-diabetic.

I decided that I did not need automatic BMI calculations — now that I know that my BMI is way below 25, plus I know how to manually calculate BMI. So decided to just get a ‘good’, reasonably priced digital scale with no features — other than giving me a readout of my weight.

Deanna found some for me but she was looking in the $40 mark. I did a quick perusal and saw this ‘BalanceFrom‘, reduced from $59.95 to $49.95 to $25 with FREE SHIPPING. It also had 990 decent reviews. I ordered it on Saturday, June 1 and got it on Tuesday, June 4! That is pretty damn good. Thanks.

I like the scales. The box was a work of art. The scales are simple but elegant with a nice large readout. I, so far, like what it says. I weighed myself before and after my run and there was a drop in weight. So, so far, so good.


On Sunday, no less, the day after I had placed the order for the new scales I get an e-mail from a very nice lady at Ozeri! She had seen my post (no doubt through a Twitter monitoring APP, given that WordPress automatically tweets all my posts).

She was very nice and wanted to send me a replacement Ozeri. I acquiesced because I did like my Ozeri. So I am supposed to be getting a new Ozeri with a return label for the old, malfunctioning unit.

Deanna wanted to know what I was going to do with the order I had placed. Obviously I did nothing. I was not going to cancel the order or return the product. It is not Amazon’s fault that I am getting a replacement and I am very reluctant to return things unless they are no good.

So, if the Ozeri arrives we will be a proud, two digital scales family. We have decided that we will have his and her scales. It will be fun to see how the two compare in terms of readings. Interestingly I might give the Ozeri to Deanna. I don’t need the BMI stuff. So if they are roughly in the same ball park in terms of readings I will keep this ‘BalanceFrom’. Of course I will share my tale.

Post Your Questions About Buddhism (or Popes) Here. I Will Answer Them Or Get Them Answered.

I saw that somebody was querying as to WHERE they could post there questions about Buddhism.

You can post them right here.

Do it as a Comment or e-mail me. [Contact info. is on the sidebar –>>>]

I can answer, with conviction, most questions about Buddhism or at least point you in the right direction. I also have some contacts who could help. IF really pressed I will ask my 83-year old father, the doyen on the subject.
[I just posted a similar offer on his blog, which I maintain. They will BOTH come to me.]

I also know a fair amount about popes and the papacy. So you can also post any questions you have about popes. I can answer those with panache.

Actually, while I am at it, you can ask me about most anything you like. The chances are that I will have some type of answer.

So … fire away.
