Our Mail In Alton, N.H., Was Delivered At 8:05 PM By The USPS Mailman!

by Anura Guruge



I am not complaining. I feel BAD for our mailman — who I consider a friend. He still had about 3-hours of delivery ahead of him! That meant he wouldn’t get home till close to midnight. That is crazy.

Yes, yes, yes. I know him. I know him well. Yes, he doesn’t normally finish his round till 7 or 8pm, but even for him this was LATE.

Appears that another Alton delivery person walked-out at 1pm. ‘Quit’ is what I was told.

We have had a lot of turnover.

I was expecting some copies of my latest meditation book, from Amazon, in the mail. Amazon said it was out for delivery. We had gone out for dinner and didn’t get back till 8pm. I checked the mailbox. No mail. So, I assumed my books had been delayed till the next day. Then I was out, with the dogs when I saw the headlights of the Jeep approaching. I knew immediately who it was. We talked. I told him to be ‘careful’. It is a tricky route — at night.

I hope they fix whatever the issues are at the Post Office. Nice crew — the last time I visited.

To-date I have applied for coverage through bloody Obamacare three times
— and I have yet to get past the application.

I have yet to be able to apply online using the poxed Website, though I have an account set up!

This is what I have done in terms of application so far:

October 2, 2013: After 16 hours of trying I managed to logon. But Website would not handle my dependents. Made application #1 on the phone via the Call Center.

October 8, 2013: Told the application I made Oct. 2 lost! Re-apply, i.e., application #2, by phone again, using Call Center.

October 14, 2013: I apply, application #3, by mail using paper forms and the correct address (because I am too smart to get fooled by Obama and his Canadian scam-artist cronies).

Still nothing.

The NEW link for this damn accursed form.

May Obama get the pox for all this criminal activity and have his pee-pee fall off.


This is BEYOND a bloody joke.

I just happened to spot it when I went to address the envelope.

How many others would spot this. This would then get LOST.

This is criminal.

Also it appears you can apply for Health Insurance if you are homeless.

Never thought of that.

Update From Reader On How Long It Takes To Get A NH Permanent Plastic Driver License.

Original Post:
How Long Before You Receive Permanent Plastic Driver License After Online Renewal
July 18, 2012.

<< I got mine in 20 days in July 2012 after an online renewal >>


An anonymous reader sent this to me this morning via e-mail:

Most people get theirs in two weeks. After three weeks I called DMV in Concord, and she said the printer has not picked it up.

I called Thursday this this week. The woman said: ‘it is in progress‘.

I said my son got his in two weeks; how come most people get theirs in two weeks, and others longer. Her answer: ‘It depends on the cycle‘. I asked what does that mean? No answer.

Now it will be four weeks. After having my license for 40 years I feel like I’m on the 60 day probation. I also did mine online. This is causing some anxiety.

In process or being processed feel like I’m getting the runaround.

NH Car Registration Fee Rate, $18 per $1,000 ‘list’ Price

As with the length of wait for a permanent license after online renewal, the ‘above’ was another piece of information that I could not easily locate using Google.

So, yesterday we had to register the KIA we had bought on June 28, 2012 from the (still) good folks at TEAM KIA, Concord.

I had to confess, I was taken aback by how much it was to register. But, as the lady pointed out, NH must get its revenue in someway. I understand that (to my cost, since I also get hit on ‘income and dividend‘).

The rate, at least as it applies in Alton, NH, is $18 per $1,000 of ‘list price’ — with the list price per the NH DMV database, which I am sure only has average prices across a given model line. So, though we have the basic model, I am sure that the list price they used was that averaged out across all the models of that make. C’est la vie.

Hope this helps.

2017 update HERE — Click.


Having renewed my license online on Thursday, June 28, 2012, I did a Google on the ‘above subject’ out of curiosity. I was surprised by the paucity of useful results I got. So, let me help out by stating how long it took in my case: 20 days.

Renewed: Thursday, June 28, 2012.

Received it by mail: Wednesday, July 18, 2012.

20 elapsed days, 13 working days not counting the day I renewed or the day I received it. We had July 4th on a Wednesday, which I am sure added at least a day. So roughly 2 working weeks. That seems OK — given that the DMV allows itself 2 months to deliver it.

I do not know the details at all, but I think that the NH DMV, like all others, now has to submit all driver renewal applications to a Federal agency for review and approval. So that must account for some of this wait period.

The one thing that I find disquieting is that the license is sent ordinary mail with the ‘State of New Hampshire’ credentials printed large. I worry that I could have lost my license in the mail … and then the hassle of trying to get another one. I don’t know if it has changed but this also used to be the case with Green Cards. Sent normal mail. I had a very nice correspondence with Senator John Sununu on this matter.

I now it is always a cost issue, postage and the extra handling, but, I for one, would gladly pay an extra $5 to $6 to have the OPTION of having it sent certified, with signature required. That would make me so much happier, just because I think (though I have no experience) that trying to get a license reissued will most likely cost me more than $6 in added hassle. So to me, it is like insurance. Anyway, hope this helps.


Of late, ANOTHER one of the many, many things that continually intrigue me has become: ‘how many XXX per year … per day‘. Yesterday I was talking to a local photographer who was lamenting that he only has 3 wedding engagements booked for the whole year. I was trying to figure how many weddings … and marriages … we have around ‘here’ each year. He reckons 50. That could be weddings, i.e., a reception of some sort. That seems low to me.

So, today’s question. How many driver license renewals a day in NH?

Obviously the DMV knows that, but I am not sure they will tell me. More fun to try and estimate. 1,318,194 souls in NH per the 2011 census. 21.2% under 18. So, lets assume that 25% are under 16 and that another 20% do not drive. So 55% of 1,318,194 is 725,006. 5 year renewal cycle, so per year we could just take 1/5 of that (and yes, I know we have those taking the test for the first time etc., but I don’t need exact): 145,000. Divide that by by 365: 397.

Seems about right to me. ~400 license renewals in NH a day. Do you have a better number?
