Ask for ‘Craig’

When we bought this house in Alton (N.H.), new, 8 years ago, it already had a fairly decent security system in place, wired in. Given that I have had security systems in nearly all the houses I have owned I was no stranger to them. The system that was in place had been well conceived. It had been installed by a local Alton firm, ‘Northeast Security Agency’. The system, however, was not activated and none of the folks involved in the sales had any idea as to how it worked. They gave me a business card for ‘Northeast Security Agency‘ and told me to ask for ‘Craig’. That is how I got to know, to my advantage, Craig Stevenson, the CEO, owner and founder.


Craig came over a few days after I called him and showed me the ropes. I was impressed. Over the years, with Craig’s advice and help, I tweaked the system a bit — added some sensors, upgraded others. Anytime I had an issue I knew that Craig would be there to take care of it and do so graciously and competently — without fuss. I get, multiple media, frequent offers from the likes of ADT. I would never dream of switching from Northeast Security. I very much doubt whether the CEO of ADT will come and fix any problems I encounter.

Recently I upgraded the system a tad. Craig gave me a very fair price. I was pleased and impressed. And that to me has always been the beauty of dealing with Craig and Northeast Security. A fair, honest price — upfront — and no nickel and diming after that. That is basically what prompted me to write this post. In reality Northeast does not need any publicity from me. They deal with some VERY BIG fish — shopping malls, colleges, schools, businesses … They even provide security guards. That why it is kind of neat that they also do, very well and diligently, home security systems. They know their stuff.

So if you are in the ‘Northeast’ and you need a security solution you do yourself a favor by first calling ‘Northeast’ and asking for Craig. Yes, the voice-mail will give you a ‘Craig’ option.

As with Ian Hamlin of New Zealand
that I brought to your attention last week,
this is another person I ‘met’ through this blog.
She had ‘liked’ some of my posts and that is how I found her.

Her work is stunning.
The quality of her pictures leave me speechless!

She does talk about HOW she learnt how to shoot roses
but alas she does not mention the equipment she uses
or have any mention of shutter speeds, ISO, aperture etc.
In a way I don’t blame her.
It is her trade secrets that she has worked hard to master.
BRAVO and kudos.

Check out her work.
You will thank me.
Another amazing talent — and British too.

I knew John, talked with him a few times and have absolutely nothing against him. John is a good man. But as I said in November John has been doing this job for too long. 20 years is enough for anybody, even someone as good as John. This is a good move for all.

I have been wracking my brain all day but I cannot recall or place the new 49-year old CEO Chuck Robbins. He joined Cisco in 1997. I was doing a lot of work for Cisco at that time and visited them often. I consulted for them well into 2001. But Cisco was a big place.

I was happy to hear the news. John will still be around. I hope he doesn’t turn into a Jack Welch. I somehow doubt it. John has genuine class.

This stock chart, going back to Cisco’s IPO tells the whole story. Yes, I owned a lot of shares during the 1996 – 2002 period! Yes, I remember when it was above $80.

Never mind the ‘Cinco de MayoGoogle Doodle. Google, as I pointed out last year, has never done one. Probably because it commemorates a war victory and Google prefers to stay clear of subject matter of that nature.


Feliz Cinco de Mayo!


Here, learn something about ‘Cinco de Mayo’ from this short, but good, YouTube video.


And before we conclude this merry Cinco de Mayo post
ENJOY this merry jig.
