I am lucky enough to have spend a lot of time in Holland (quite a bit of it on work (doing seminars)) — the TULIP CAPITAL of the World. So, I have seen miles & miles of tulips.

This wasn’t, of course, as extensive, BUT it was still pretty gosh IMPRESSIVE & awfully pretty. I had to stop, get out & take some pictures.

It is veterinary practice. They spend a fortune on landscaping. SMILE.

Enjoy. SMILE.

COVID-19 NH: Hardly Any Outdoor Dining In State Capital, Concord (N.H.)

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE.

It was 11:30am, on a Sunny (but a tad mild (@60F)), Tuesday — 2nd day that New Hampshire restaurants were open for outdoor dining.

But, it was ALL empty or NOT set up.

We just saw two folks, a mother & daughter — & I drove up/down North & South Main St. as well as Loudon Road.

‘Red Arrow’ diner had picnic tables outside but was only doing takeout — and they were NOT busy.

I was sure (that my friend) Alex Ray’sCommon Man” would not only be all set-up, BUT BUSY. I was wrong. It was empty. Not set-up for outdoor dining. That makes no sense. They have a huge car park ideal for it.

So …


What gives?

Just time?

This week, from what I see, will be kind in terms of weather. No heavy rain. Doesn’t look good.

Stopped by “Dominick’s“, in Chichester, on the way back. Another joint with a HUGE car park. EMPTY with a sign on the door that said “CLOSED”.

I was amused by her (and yes, it is a ‘her’) message on the sign.

Does SHE realize the coded message that was in THE SONG?

Help from my friends‘. HHHmmmm. SMILE.

I am sure. That would definitely help. SMILE.

For Barbara Bush — Giant American Flag At Chichester, N.H., “Camping World”, At Half Mast.

by Anura Guruge

It is one of the largest flags around here, and one the largest I have seen.

It towers over the “Camping World” RV sales lot, in Chichester, New Hampshire — just outside of our capital, Concord. It is quite the sight to see at anytime. Today, to see it at half mast was sobering. It definitely gets your attention. Its size has caused controversy.

It is at half mast for Barbara Bush — as it should be. She was quite the lady. She will be missed.

delayed221Having been with TDS for nearly 6 years (starting off with Union Tel. which was acquired by TDS) I think I know TDS better than most that work for TDS.

So when I was told (maybe even ‘promised’) 1 Gigabit Internet in Alton, New Hampshire by October 2015 — with the possibility of being able to beta test it in august 2015 — I took it with a LARGE grain of salt. I just knew it was too good to be true. Lets face it. TDS had been promising me 25Mbps Internet for years and that never came.

That is why, after some intense agonizing, I went with MetroCast’s 75Mbps in January of this year. Other than the 2 weeks of HELL I went through in late February when the service was either down or slow, they have, to my immense surprise and delight, managed to maintain a very stable service with NO bandwidth degradation. Yes, it is true that I use my own ARRIS/Motorola SurfBoard SB6141 to get maximum channel bonding. That said, I have not seen any significant bandwidth drop even on a Saturday night. So I am happy with the MetroCast 75Mbps. Credit where credit is due.

That said I decided to get a 15Mbps Fiber connection from TDS in ADDITION to my 75Mbps from MetroCast! 

More on that on a different post SOON.

But while ordering the 15Mbps AND DISH (via TDS because I will get a $100 bill credit next month for doing that) I got the scoop on the 1 Gigabit.

It has been delayed. No surprise. I knew that was inevitable. There are now talking ‘Spring’ 2016 BUT somebody else, in the field, said ‘this time next year’ — meaning June.

Appears that there is some politics at play to do with Towns and the monopoly agreement that carriers sign with them.

Seems Chichester, N.H., now has 1 Gigabit as does New London.

I also got a PRICE. It will be around $123/month BEFORE taxes.

I will keep you posted.
