I have been visiting Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center (in Lebanon), on a fairly regular basis, for the last 15-years. NO. I have yet to see a doctor, for myself, in all those years — & probably upwards 50 visits. Well for a start Teischan was born there (in 2006). That alone necessitated quite a few trips.

I always enjoy visiting DMHC. It is like going to a fancy country club than a hospital. The way they have cleverly arranged it, you never see any sick folk per se. Plus they have all this great artwork & often, even folks playing the many grand pianos scattered around the place.

Today was no exception. Lot of nice art. I wanted to share them with YOU. Enjoy. SMILE.

1st New Hampshire Coronavirus Patient, Medical Professional No Less, Who Did NOT Self-Isolate Should Be CHARGED & Fired.

Yes, we know that it is a male, he works at ‘Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center‘ (DHMC) in Hanover, he caught it in Italy and that he was instructed by the hospital to self-isolate.

He was told to self-isolate on Friday.

But, that evening he attended a private, invitation-only function attended by STUDENTS. He knew that!

That is criminal.

He can’t claim that he was ‘unaware’ since he works for Dartmouth — though Dartmouth is not immune from hiring idiots.

If anybody dies, after catching the virus from him, he should be charged with MANSLAUGHTER. Simple as that, because that is what it is.

That DHMC has not fired him as yet is also inexcusable.

They claim that he did NOT come into contact with any patients. I don’t really believe them. SMILE.

I have always said that going to ‘Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center‘ (DHMC), in Lebanon, N.H. is like visiting a resort rather than a high-end, full-function hospital. They go out of their way to make the environment soothing and pleasing to the senses. You are surrounded by very high-class art and if you are lucky, as I was this morning, with live music from a piano  player at a grand.

They had works by Milford (N.H.) artist ‘William Cheever Turner‘ on display in one wing. I had never heard of him and I wish I had. His work, as you can see, is quite spectacular. I took a few pictures so I could SHARE them with you. You have to check out his. The level of detail and realism is phenomenal.

It was a good day overall, and we were not there for anything serious. These paintings made my morning.

Enjoy.

Piano Player At Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center On Valentine’s Day 2019.

There are many nice things about the ‘Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center‘ (DHMC), in Lebanon, N.H. They go to GREAT lengths to make it NOT look and feel like a hospital. I kid you not. I have spent a LOT of time at DHMC over the last 13-years. For one, Teischan was born there, and I was there for 3-days on the trot for that.

They have a lot of great art and a number of grands strategically positioned around the rambling campus. This is the one closest to the main entrance. Anybody is welcome to play them, Typically volunteers set out to regale the folks. This appeared to be one of them. Fairly good chance he works there.

This was quite early in the morning, i.e., around 9:30am. But, it was Valentine’s Day. So, it was good. I liked him. You can hear me clapping.

Enjoy.

Come on. Let me hear you say ‘Aaahhhh!’ — with feeling.

Doesn’t it warm the cockles of your heart.

A sculpture at the ‘Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center‘ (DHMC), in Lebanon, N.H. Despite how special it is, this is tucked away, on the 5th floor (depending on how you count the floors), off the beaten-track. I was exploring and bumped into it.

Wanted to share with you given it is Valentine’s Day and all.

That Lebanon, New Hampshire Was Ranked #1 Best Small Town In The U.S. Does Not Surprise Me.

View of the Connecticut River, on whose east bank both Lebanon and Hanover are on — Vermont being on the west bank. This image of the river, crossing the river, grabbed from Google’s ‘street view’. Click to ENLARGE.


That LebanonNew Hampshire, managed to grab the #1 spot would NOT surprise anyone who has had the pleasure of visiting Hanover, N.H. — the home of Dartmouth College, the HOP Center for Performing Arts and the famed Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) — which is next door. Essentially when anybody talks about Lebanon, N.H., in a context like this, they are really talking Lebanon-Hanover amalgamated.

I have always, since my first eye opening visit in 1998, have thought of Hanover as a cultural and social oasis within N.H. As I describe it to people (who know Boston) — it is as if Boston’s Newbury Street was transplanted in New Hampshire.

Hanover, N.H., with its lovely, quintessential ‘village’ green, with the mandatory white building with spires surrounding it, is one of my favorite places to visit in N.H. Luckily, we do typically manage to get there at least 4 times a year — usually more. Most times these days, now that we do not go to DHMC (Hanover) as much as we used to, we go there for performances at the HOP.

Lebanon per se, to be honest, is a bit rough even by N.H. standards. But thanks to Hanover the surrounding area, in a 20 mile radius, has a genteel, salubrious air of good New England living.

So I am not at all surprised of the ranking. To be honest 8 years ago, before we moved to Alton, we looked at the prospect of moving to the Hanover area. Compared to the Lakes Region that area was at least 70K more expensive in terms of comparable housing. That is why we ended up in Alton.

So Bravo to Lebanon/Hanover. Well done. You have done New Hampshire pride.

That Bar Harbor, Maine, the port of call for Acadia National Park came in at #5 did, however, cause me to pucker my eyebrows. Do not get me wrong. We love Bar Harbor. Of late we have been visiting there twice a year and plan to be there SOON. Bar Harbor is lovely, but in many ways it is a one-trick pony town. Acadia. Yes, of course, it has a fabulous main street, great eateries and scenery, both aquatic and green, to kill — but it is mainly a Summer tourist town. Yes, if we could find the right place, for the right price, we would live within 35 miles of Bar Harbor in a heartbeat and Deanna of late is kind of urging me to find a place where she can see the ocean. So I think, as with Lebanon, when they really meant Lebanon-Hanover, I think they are using ‘Bar Harbor’ here as a token for meaning that whole ‘Acadia’ area. And that I can BUY with no trouble. One of the most beautiful areas in the northeast.
