Cleverest Vanity Plate Ever — & It Is A ‘New Hampshire’ Plate.

It was on a SUV parked at our beach this morning.

I had to take a double take. I first thought it said ‘Venal’ & thought that that was quite ‘ballsy’. Then, I got it right.

WOW. Was I impressed. In ‘New Hampshire’? I am sure that a majority of folks in New Hampshire have NO IDEA what the word means. Many may even claim that they have never heard it (which, however, is unlikely to be true).


It was on a white, U.S. GMC mid-size SUV.

Yes, it was INDEED an ‘Equinox‘.

Get it: Vernal Equinox, i.e., Spring (March) Equinox, ‘vernal‘ the Latin for ‘Spring related‘.

How clever. I was so impressed. I have NOT seen that plate before, BUT the Equinox was on our beach. I had a dog with me & it was past 10am. So, I didn’t dare venture to the beach. Dogs are not allowed after 10am (I think (or maybe it is even earlier)). It could have been somebody visiting a neighbor. I would LOVE to meet the owner. I think it is a Mum. There were only two vehicles parked & I could hear lots of kids on the beach.

My hat off to whoever came up with this. Bravo. Thank YOU. Made my day.

Here is the supreme IRONY. In September 2020, in EXACTLY the same spot as this Equinox was parked I saw this. Now that lacked class.

Intelligent People Healthier, Thinner & Likely To Live Longer? REALLY?

All from the “Daily Mail” article.



This seems quite the dynamite article even for the intrepid folks at the U.K. “Daily Mail” who are always willing to go out on a limb in order to keep us enlightened and entertained.

I am willing to buy, to an extent, that intelligent people are more willing to take care of themselves and have the capacity to watch their diet better etc. But I think we all know exceptions. My adoptive father was one of the most intelligent people I knew and he was overweight all his life. But, on the other hand, he wasn’t sick that often. 

Food for thought. When I saw this on Thursday morning I wanted to make sure I shared it with YOU.

Best T-Shirt Slogan I Have Seen Since “If You Can Read This …”

The “If You Can Read THIS The BITCH Fell Off” T-shirt from the 1990s.

I first saw this, on the back of a biker, during Laconia Bike Week, c. 1996.

I couldn’t stop laughing for two weeks.

I could never wear one since I was NOT a biker.
Thought about getting one for the jet ski, but the lifevest obscured it.

Saw this last night, in Hanover, NH, at the “Salt Hill Pub“, after Christmas Revels 2015 (North).

It is SO CLEVER at multiple levels (at least 3).

It was been worn by a (very nice) waitress. She was KIND enough to let me photograph her back, though when she gave permission, she had no idea what part of her (very attractive) backside I had designs on. She laughed when she saw what I had snapped.

Appears that they sell those T-shirts there and the waitresses wear them, on a rotating basis, as a promotional gimmick. She wanted to know whether I was interested in buying one. Alas, I pointed out to her that I was not in the habit of wearing T-shirts that promoted things and that I no longer partook in beer (just wine).

Third, maybe fourth time, we have been to the “Salt Hill Pub” — all, of course, after a show at the HOP. We like the place. Fun place. Decent food. Decent prices. Very friendly waitresses. Highly recommended.
