Cherries, To My Delight, Are Back At My Supermarket After A 6- Or 7-Month Hiatus.


by Anura Guruge




Until October or November last year I had not realized that fresh Cherries, at least in New Hampshire, are seasonal, i.e., only available during the Summer months. Wow. I had kind of fallen into the belief that all common fruits, these days, were available year round due to ‘cheap’ air transport. I knew that we got fruits, vegetables & flowers, on a regular basis, from Chile, Peru, Greece & Israel.

Appears that this not the case when it comes to cherries. Cherries we get in New Hampshire are from California & they are only available during ‘Summer’. Well now I know. I am going to eat as much as I can over the next few months.

Benghazi, Libya Is NOT In The Middle East. WMUR Is Wrong, Kuster Is Right. Politics Does Not Change Geography.

I nearly choked when I heard it on WMUR. No, Benghazi is NOT in the Middle East. If it is, so would be Athens — that the capital of Greece.

Yes, I understand that 35% of adults in N.H. cannot place either Maine or Vermont on a map. So, it is very hard when you are dealing with far away foreign countries.

So let me help out here with a map. This is the Mediterranean. Benghazi is further west than Athens — and that is Athens, Greece!

Istanbul, Turkey (that being where all the Thanksgiving birds are shipped over from), is the demarcation line between Europe and Asia, i.e, the East (where all those wogs come from).

So here are the WMUR reports. Poor WMUR. They can’t help it. Most of them were educated in N.H. pre-Common Core. I just want to make sure that we have the facts right. That is all.
Don’t get me wrong. I am not a huge fan of Annie Kuster. She is way TOO PLAIN for my liking. I am very superficial like that. I like my female politicians, well if the truth be known, all females (and even the men) to be halfway decent looking! Sorry. But, at least I am honest. That is why I always liked Michele Bachmann despite her crazy politics! Well at least I have SOME standards.
