We went their for dinner on New Year’s Day 2020 — which also happened to be our 17th wedding anniversary. It was good. It had been recommended to us and they were right. Great place. Good food. Great atmosphere.
But, this men’s room was a HOWLER. I kid you not. I talked to the manager (a very nice gentleman) about it. It was to accommodate the handicap access laws. It has been like that for 18-years. Cracks me up. You would think an architect could have come up with some other configuration.
Mind boggles. Don’t think too much about it. SMILE.
2020 Chinese New Year, Free Event At ‘Confucius Institute’, UNH (Durham, NH) — Terracotta Warriors & Qin Bamboo Slips.
4-minute BBC documentary if you are not familiar with this
Terracotta Warriors — the greatest archaeological discovery of the 20th century.
The 2020 iteration of the now yearly event being presented by my friends at the UNH ‘Confucius Institute‘.
As ever it is a FREE event, open to the public. We have gone to these nearly every year. Without fail they are extremely good and a great bunch of people. Very friendly. Very hospitable.
This should be GOOD, very good. The UNH Confucius Institute specializes in EXCELLENCE. They never disappoint. That is part of their ethos and it is impressive.
Start at around the 3 minute mark and watch.
I hope NOT. I like him. He might be a Republican but I think he is an honest, decent, conscientious man. I want him to be as able as he can be.
My mother as well as a number of other relatives have had Parkinson’s. Also a couple of folks that I have known.
I noticed his hand shaking RIGHT AWAY. It was hard to miss.
Yes, it could have been just nerves. Momentous occasion. He knew the world was watching. But, this is nothing new to him — not now. He was sworn in two presidents. He is on TV quite a bit.
The shaking continued. Possibly even got worse.
Parkinson’s is purely ‘mechanical’. It doesn’t, at least at first, impair one’s cognitive powers. So, that is good.
But, I am hoping that I am wrong. I really do like him.
ASUS (US) PC Support Making False FedEx Shipping Damage Claims Using Bogus Pictures — We Have The Proof.
Original e-mail from ASUS demanding $24.75.
Final $0.00 bill once they realized that the game was up.
They are now saying that charged FedEx for the damage.
The ASUS (US) PC Support scam seems very well planned, executed, shameless and corrupt.
When they can’t get money from the customer they are making a claim against FedEx,
- Why didn’t they make the FedEx claim earlier and just tell us that FedEx was paying?
- Are they making FedEx claims even when the customer pays?
In our case we are 100% sure that there was NO Damage.
The 6-week old laptop was sent in because it was dead. Dead. Would not power up. That is what we wanted fixed.
If the case was truly damaged they could still have fixed the Windows Power Up issue and send us the laptop back — with the damage.
This scam unraveled for ASUS when I called their bluff and said “OK, so if you have pictures of our laptop being unboxed — showing damage — send it to me“. Our laptop had a lot of unique stickers on it. You can’t miss it. They realized that they had been caught out. They had NO pictures.
Our laptop was not damaged.
They making false FedEx claims as to be a crime — I would think. I, alas, can’t pursue that. Only FedEx can.
I will do my best to get FedEx to look into this. I will happily give FedEx all the evidence we have.Th….
