higwayrobberyI have had it with
Bloody MetroCast!

MetroCast LIES!

80 hours now at 4.17Mbps when I am paying for 75Mbps.

I want my money back.
Plain and simple.

I have had a LOT of luck, over the years, with BBB —
Direct Sat TV, Linksys etc.

Doesn’t cost anything to file.

Takes me about 4 minutes.

I urge YOU also to file complaints.

If nothing else you can get some satisfaction.

Here is where you start to file the BBB Complaint.

Group jumping rope was a major hit and took center stage. I took about 100 pictures. Managed to get about 30% in the air. This is the video. Check the photo montage below for some of the still shots of the airborne jumpers.

I guess with the latest YET LLC shenanigans they sure did achieve this goal.

Well done Billy. Well done School Board. You can now TICK that off the list.
GREAT JOB.
Maybe the Board should give you a $1,500 BONUS.

Best $3,000 the Board ever spent.

Bloody MetroCast!

MetroCast LIES!

MetroCast sucks — but doesn’t even do that very well.

I signed up BECAUSE I just couldn’t get by with the 15Mbps I was getting from TDS.

I knew it was a risk because MetroCast has never been committed to helping its customers.

I never expected it to be THIS BAD.

I have to do something. I can not work with ‘no bandwidth’.

I hate bloody MetroCast.

It is hard to stop me from having fun.
The kids are never sure whether to laugh or cry —
but I think deep down they are kind of glad
that they have a dad, who though old as the hills,
is still willing to act the clown.

Of course we went. It was a BLAST.
Thursday, February 26, 2015.

Thank YOU UNH Confucius Center.

Thank YOU Dr. Yige Wang.

Another HUGE success
like last year’s GALA.

Much more to come.

This was the 2nd Dragon Dance
during the 6:30 to 8:00 pm session.
They wanted a ‘tall’ man at the front.
Deanna is one removed from me.

Click to access YouTube video. Devanee shot it using my (hers to soon be) Canon T3i. Deanna is behind me — one removed. Read the YouTube description. That head was heavy. I was surprised. Maybe 20 pounds. Maybe more.


Alton Central (ACS) School Board: Letter To Profile Bank Re. Lander/Leggett YET Looks Like A Ruse …

William (‘Bill’) Lander

The Inglorious Tenure At Alton Central School (ACS):
The Redux — Partial Gallery.

A. Hiring of suspended facilitator.               B. Near illiterate blog posts.
C. Using another lawyer.                             D. Getting facts wrong, again.
E. Can’t chew gum and run meeting.          F. Baseless allegations.
G. Board overturns decisions.

++++ Check Category “Alton’s Funniest Videos” for many more >>>>

This is but a PARTIAL gallery of shame. I will add to it as I have time.


As somebody who has been self-employed in N.H. since 1992, and has owned a N.H. LLC (of very good standing), WOWNH LLC, for a very long time, I am totally flummoxed as to why Lander needed a letter from the ACS School Board to get a loan from Profile Bank.

At the Feb. 17, 2015 School Board meeting, I think, it was implied that he, i.e., Billy, needed the letter so that he could form his LLC. Well, that does NOT make sense. It only costs peanuts, in NH, to register an LLC — I think less than $150. If Billy needed a loan from Profile Bank to cover $150 I dread to think of him in charge of a budget greater than $0.00.

Does NOT make sense …

UNLESS …

It was a clever, devious RUSE by Billy to get the hapless, clueless Board to PRE-COMMIT to the contract!

Get that?

That is exactly what the Board did as far as I can see from THE Letter.

They, BY writing that letter, pre-committed to the contract — which they claim they have yet to sign.

But that no longer matters. Billy has the Profile letter. That says Board committed.

So I am of the opinion that the letter was a RUSE.

Why would Billy need a loan? He will get $125,000 from ACS — at some unspecified date.

He wants MORE.

*********

I am going to go after Profile Bank.

I will be contacting their CEO this week and I will also start reporting them to every Securities monitoring agency that I can locate.

IF Profile Bank, which I do not consider to be a top-tier, Industrial-Strength bank, gave a loan to Billy based on this UNDATED letter — they have problems. Down the road we, as taxpayers, will be holding the can for yet another bad loan.

So IF Profile Bank made a loan based on this letter I am going after them. I am fed up of subsidizing and taking a financial hit for bad loans made by banks.

Get that?

Be careful. Be very careful. We, as residents and taxpayers, are getting shafted.
