President Biden FINALLY Adds ‘Sign Language’ To ‘White House’ Press Briefings.

by Anura Guruge



I asked the question nearly a year ago (as you can see from the image at the top).

I noticed that it has come to pass under President Biden — THOUGH all media outlets (e.g., CNN) are NOT showing it! Can’t figure out why. MSNBC does so, from what I can see,

Have YOU noticed it. I no longer (SMILE) watch as many White House Press Briefings as I used to. They are not as entertaining as they used to be — BUT that is a good thing.

Though I cannot read sign language I am GLAD that it is available. Yes, I do like watching them. Some, as you know, are very expressive.

New Hampshire COVID-19 Vaccination: VAMS Is Not Working, Get A Manual Appointment Through 211 — April 16!

by Anura Guruge


Well, on February 1, 2021, I thought having to wait till March 25, i.e., 6-weeks away, to get my vaccination was unacceptable. I thought scheduling will IMPROVE over time. WRONG. DEAD WRONG.

I tried yesterday. Could NOT get any appointments. NADA. Nothing.

Today, I made two 211 calls. About 20-minutes on hold, each time, BUT they are really helpful.

After the 1st call I tried VAMS again. Could not get a SINGLE appointment. Then around 7pm today, I called 211 for the 2nd time.

He said that there are times when VAMS does NOT work. Also said that all the sites in the South, i.e., South of Concord, were FULL till May.

But, he could get me an appointment in Plymouth, Lebanon or Claremont. Plymouth is only about an hour away & it is a nice drive. So, I opted for Plymouth.

On Friday, April 16 at the ‘National Guard Recruiting Center’. 2-months out.

This is CRAZY.

All of the ‘fluff’ you hear on WMUR is just plain FAKE NEWS.
