This ‘Virtual Graduation‘ tickled my fancy though I did feel bad for the kids.

In my first post on this, on May 7, I did say: “I will try and snap others if I see them and keep on adding to this gallery“. Well, I always TRY to live up to promises I make.

I am glad I stopped & walked around. I am used to walking around ‘The Circle’. It scares me not, & walking is not a problem. Glad I did.

Saw the pictures of two ‘kids’ I have known for close onto 10-years. That made me smile. I was glad. Quite a few names I recognized.

Well, congratulations. Well done.

Hope these pictures help. This post should be around for a LONG TIME. It is not going anywhere.

All the best. Cheers.


From last year.

‘Prospect Mountain High School’, Alton (NH), 2020 Virtual Graduation.

I feel bad. Wow. Devanee graduated from Prospect just last year. This could have been her.

These are the only 3 signs I have seen so far on my walks — but then again I haven’t ventured too far from home.

One is on our road. The other two are within 1/2-mile.

I will try and snap others if I see them and keep on adding to this gallery.

I really do feel bad for the kids. I have experienced 3 graduations — 4 kids, 3 graduated (so far). It is such a shame. Missing out on the celebrations. And the Prom. But, they can talk about it for the rest of their lives. Their missed graduation & prom. Hopefully these pictures will help. These will probably be on the Web forever. Let’s hope so.

All the best. Congratulations.

Ignored BUT Growing Form Of Pollution — Neglected, Long Obsolete, ‘Lost Pet’ Signs.

by Anura Guruge



I, as a pet owner, fully understand and appreciate the distress of a missing pet (though I have to say that in over 40-years of owning dogs I have never had one go missing).

I have no gripes with folks putting up ‘Missing Pet‘ signs. If they think it helps, by all means. I also realize that it is cathartic.

My gripe is that they NEVER take down these signs! These days they are invariably laminated, in plastic sleeves or on thick, plastic-coated paper. These signs, nailed/stapled to trees stay on for years.

About 5-years ago a very prominent and wealthy family in town lost one of their (supposedly) trained, sled-pulling huskies. They plastered signs within a radius of 15-miles. They never found the dog and that has always bothered me. I still see these signs … 5-years later.

The two signs I show above went up a few days ago. They plastered the area around us. These two signs were about 10’ apart — set well back from the road. Very few people walk these streets. Most drive. The signs are too far to be read from a car.

These signs will stay up …

That is my issue.

When I saw the picture and read the Daily Mail headline that said “Catholic priest” I had no doubt that this was meant to be an anti-Francis endorsement of gay-marriage. Even if it referred to kids of DIVORCED families that would still be somewhat against Church teachings. Obviously the 73-year old priest was making a statement and looking for a reaction. Well he got one.

That Catholic priests troll the Web looking for ‘funny church signs’ is rather disturbing IF not sad.

Jesus having two dads has always bothered me. That he is from the line of ‘David’, through his mother’s husband Joseph, always confused me. Jesus is NOT of Joseph’s bloodline UNLESS we take the macro view that we are all descended from Adam & Eve — or that IF your Dad is indeed God then you are related to everybody (Christian or otherwise).

On Saturday, on my near daily run up Prospect Mountain Road, I noticed these painstakingly created, signs — each inside a plastic insert for protection from the elements.

I was touched. Great effort. Thank you.

Much needed. There is a LOT of thrash on this beautiful, rural road. Lot of detritus from fast food places and many, many discarded bottles and cans. Maya sniffs all of them out. Given that I am trying to run I really can’t afford to stop to pick all of this up.

Despite the valiant effort I doubt whether these wonderful signs will stop the violations. I doubt whether most of the culprits are literate. 

Shame.

But, I thank whoever put up the signs. Well done. Hope you can make a difference.

Bravo! Thanks.


2013 Fall Foliage In New Hampshire (N.H.) Seems To Have Begun — At Least A Couple Of Weeks Ahead Of The Norm.

I have to confess that I don’t normally take much notice of the foliage — kind of blasé about it having lived in heavily wooded parts of New Hampshire for the last 28 years.

But, seeing the hard-to-miss red foliage on August 5 I have been more on the lookout this year. Plus, we have been asked as Granite State Ambassadors (GSAs) to keep an eye on the fall foliage this year.

This morning (viz. Monday, August 19, 2013) I was running down Prospect Mountain Road (after having run up it), head down, thinking about all the book-related stuff I had to get done today, when something fluttered on my shoulder. I stopped to look. It was red maple leaf. Bright red/orange, and quite small. I then looked around. About a dozen such leaves on the ground. Looked up. Sure enough a patch of red/orange foliage in the trees. This 1/2 mile down from the first foliage I had spotted two weeks ago. So I picked up four leaves and brought them home.

Then, later on in the morning, while seated at my PC, I looked over to my right — through the window I sit next to. My office is on the 4th floor (i.e. attic) on this Colonial. So I am at treetop level. The tree directly across from me is changing color.

This, I know, is early. I asked my ‘buddy’ at the Alton Post Office. He is a native. He says it is early. Half and hour later we were at the Hannaford check-out in Alton when I heard the young checkout girl talking about how the foliage was early this year.

So it must be true. Fall foliage 2013, in NH, is early.

But, after what has been a chilly August (though I am forcing myself and Teischan to still go swimming in the lake, including today), we are going to get a 3-day HEAT WAVE. That will sure confuse the trees. They might start shedding earlier.

Yes, of course, I will keep an eye open and let you know. Stay tuned.

New Hampshire (N.H.) 2013 Foliage Is Already Beginning To Peek Through — Well Ahead Of Schedule.

As I stated in this post I was truly stunned to see bona fide red foliage in a tree on August 5, 2013. That to me was way too early.

Toady we went to ‘Story Land‘ in Glen, New Hampshire, just north of North Conway. That is prime fall foliage country. I kept a weather eye open.

Didn’t see any fall foliage per se until we were in ‘Story Land’. The above two pictures were trees at Story Land. Unmistakable, incontrovertible evidence that the leaves are changing color. In the case of the tree that was already mainly orange it was shedding leaves.

I think this is early.

So this could be quite a year for fall foliage given that August has been unusually chilly. I will keep my eyes open. I am in foliage country. I am surrounded by trees,

So stay tuned.
