This Friday, July 10, 2015 concert, at Kingswood, Wolfeboro, N.H. (the first at that venue this year), as I wrote about in November 2014, is THE BIG ONE — the star event — for Great Waters for this season.

It is, from what I can see, going to be BIG in all fronts. 9 members in the band. A crew of 4 to 5. It will be quite the set-up and tear-down. It should be fun.

Was never a big BS&T fan. But maybe they will win me over. Of course I will tell you about it after the show.

Hope you can make it.


Did WMUR (Again) Intentionally Mislead Folks About 4th Of July 2015 Weather Forecast In New Hampshire?

All week, leading up to the 2015 4th of July (long) weekend, the WMUR weather forecasters were tripping over themselves to proclaim who perfect it was going to be — hot with lots of sunshine BOTH Saturday (the 4th) and Sunday. Even at 9am Saturday morning they were claiming that it would be a perfect day — while I am looking out of the window seeing lots of clouds.

Well, at least in most parts of New Hampshire, we had a fair amount of clouds, rain (albeit it light) and COLD temperatures for most of Saturday afternoon. Yes, the rain, fortunately, ceased before most of the town firework shows BUT most people had to contend with a not very nice 4th of July afternoon.

Click to hear Judge’s apology, Sunday, July 5, 2015 IF you do NOT believe me.

This morning, on Sunday, Josh Judge, WMUR’s megastar weather forecaster, APOLOGIZED for getting the forecast SO, SO WRONG. Check it out here >>>>

Well, to be honest, I do NOT buy it. WMUR has done it before and I have mixed feelings about it.

As a Lifetime Granite State Ambassador (GSA) I have a vested interested in promoting tourism in New Hampshire. Yes, we need EVERY cent we can get from those from other States.

So I fully understand the motivation to mislead tourists about the weather on KEY holidays. I just worry that in time THEY will cotton on!

I have been watching this for years — with WMUR. To me it has become kind of a joke.

WMUR consistently, across all 4 SEASONS, will dupe folks into believing that we will have good weather during important holidays — whether it be the 4th, Labor Day, Columbus Day, New Year’s (for skiing) etc.

So I am just giving you a heads up. Just be leary about WMUR weather forecasts when it come to HOLIDAYS.


Yellow Moon Over Merrymeeting River, Alton, NH — 4th of July 2015.

I took this picture, at Deanna’s behest, with my Canon T3i, at 10:45 pm, 4th of July, off Route 28, in Alton, New Hampshire (right off the ‘Circle’) coming back from the Wolfeboro concert & fireworks.

That is Merrymeeting River or Swamp. Not the lake. Lake is much further away in New Durham.

I think the yellowness had to do with the smoke from all of the 4th of July fireworks.

Another picture taken, roughly from the same place, in April 2015, Easter Sunday, when the river was partially frozen.

“The Cate Park Band” (led by our friend Bobby Burns)
playing an upbeat, rousing medley of popular songs (inc. some movie hits)
was on the mark and just what was needed. Bravo.

The fireworks were “OK”. Par for the course for central NH.
The usual ’20 minutes’ of desultory single shot, not very high grade fireworks,
compensated by a ‘4 minutes’ bang-bang-bang finale.
But any firework display, by definition, is ‘good’.

So it was FUN. A good evening out. Good crowd. Everybody was happy.
Rain had cleared. The temperature was just right if you had a ‘T’ under your shirt.
Wolfeboro, as ever, did you proud.

A good 4th of July.

This, on a Friday, on the eve of the 4th of July, proved to be one heck of a concert. It was compellingly melodic. The music, with easy to follow lyrics, was extremely pleasing to the ear. Twangy and catchy. This was the 5th “Great Waters” concert of 2015 and we have been privileged to some fine music — but the guitar play by these two maestros, longtime friends, took the cake. I was very glad to be there to experience it and also have the chance to talk to these two extremely charming — and hugely talented — gentleman. I sometimes feel so lucky. And I found out, while chatting with Cliff Eberhardt that we had all lucked out. This is NOT a duo. They just get together for a week, in the Summer, and do joint concerts. And this was that week. So, in essence, we got two gifted musicians, each a solo artist in their own right, performing together. And it was good. They both have a tremendous sense of humor.

It was not a large crowd, the looming 4th probably having something to do with it. But most in the crowd knew these two and their music. That was good. They were both new to me BUT they now have a follower. It was a great way for us to kick off this long weekend. What a thrill. Thank YOU John. Thank YOU Cliff.
