There are quite a few posts on ‘The Flume‘ from yesterday as well as last year. So, I won’t say much on this one. I took 300 pictures! It is a place that tempts you to click. I posted quite a few pictures last year too. This year I want to do a chronological, pictorial guide — kind of taking you along, step-by-step, on the 2-mile round trip. When I have time. For now enjoy these,

Sumptuous Virtual Tour Of The Queen’s “Buckingham Palace” By U.K. Government.

by Anura Guruge

I gather Google was involved in producing this lavish, annotated, 360° tour. Of course they are only showing a very limited subset of a subset of this huge, rambling Palace — for obvious reasons (security the paramount concern). I was impressed. Wanted to make sure you knew about it.


This is the U.K. government’s official Website for the “British Monarchy”. The virtual tour is provided through this Website. Click image to access the Website. Enjoy.

Another worthy cause and how can you not endorse it.

As with most of these ’causes’ I happened to see it in the U.K. “Daily Mail” — which I read, online, on my pad, every morning, first thing, while at the same time listening to CNBC (and drinking my first cup of coffee (provided by Deanna)).

I know that many of you rely on me to keep you abreast on these type of causes and I am happy to oblige. SMILE.

Stock Symbols Of Interest From CNBC Morning Ticker — Thursday, June 18, 2015.

by Anura Guruge

This is meant to be daily, weekday, post (when I can), of 5 to 6 stock symbols that caught my eye, typically between 9 and 9:30 am, on the CNBC scrolling ticker. Basically random. Just symbols that jumped out at me — either because of their gains for the day, their attractive stock price or JUST because the name looked interesting. In general names that were unfamiliar to me — though it could be a symbol, e.g., ‘S’, that might have piqued my interest this time around. These are stocks I plan to check to check, if I get the time (using ‘MarketWatch.com’), during the day. Sharing with you for the heck of it — incase it MIGHT help at least one of you. Of late people keep on asking me about investing (as IF I know what I am doing). This will also help me with that. I can just point them to these posts. No guarantees, warranties, promises, recommendations or anything like that. 99.6% of the time these stocks catch my eye because I know NADA about them.

Today, FitBit (FIT) a company that we are vastly familiar with, given that we were early product customers in 2011, had their IPO. We were NOT impressed with the product, and I actually TOSSED mine in the garbage, but we have to say, that at least in 2012, their customer support and PR were outstanding. They sent my wife a number of FREE FitBits to try and placate her. I was impressed. No Fidelity, given my pitiful assets, did NOT give me any IPO allocation. C’est la vie. I will not buy it at $30. I might, for the heck of it, purely to TRADE (as opposed to going long), might by some in the next few days IF the price gets to $28 or below.

We Met Michael Dukakis In Laconia, NH, Today — Oct. 27, 2012.

She really was all that had been portrayed of her. What a role model for the kids. I just thanked her and her husband. Click to ENLARGE to full size.

Teischan, who is a fairly stoic soul, was obviously impressed. Most important lady she has met so far. Click to ENLARGE.

Good crowds. Maybe around 70. The little Laconia office was packed. Lots of local VIPs. That was good. The campaign send a team of young ladies ahead to setup and jazz-up the office. I am glad they did. Looked very festive, though there were a lot of us very apprehensive. This is not 2008. A couple of things that amazed me, but I will not talk about them here.

Andrew Hosmer (left), a VERY NICE gentleman, who is running for NH Senate from Laconia. Please vote for him. He will excel.
