Call up ACS.

You get the usual ‘voice response system’ prompts.

Says, near the top, as it should,
PRESS ‘0’ if an emergency.

Well PRESS ‘0’.

Nothing happens.

The system prattles on, oblivious.

PRESS ‘0’.

Nothing happens.

Press ‘0’.

Nothing happens.

You get my drift. Basically you have to wait for the WHOLE damn spiel, which takes well over a minute.

IF you were calling about an EMERGENCY the emergency would be long gone BEFORE you were able to ENTER the damn ‘0’.


It, as is invariably the case with ACS, of course, gets better.

YOU GET voice-mail!

So, you call up about an EMERGENCY … they keep you hanging … then they give you voice-mail.

Way to go ACS.

What did I do. The only thing I could do.
I reported it to the police.
They happened to be at the house.
So that was handy.
They were intrigued.
They understood my problem.
They were going to look at it.
They were HAPPY that I reported it to them!

Comet ISON Maybe A Goner, But Comet Lovejoy, C/2013 R1, Is Still Out There. Another ‘Good’ Comet.

**** Scroll down or do search, MULTIPLE ISON posts a day November 28 & November 29 ****

C/2013 R1 (Lovejoy) still out there.

Where to see C/2013 R1 (Lovejoy) Dec. 6 - 15, 2013 -- over New Hampshire.

That it is C/2013 R1, whereas Comet ISON was C/2012 S1, tells us that C/2013 R1 was discovered a one year after ISON.

It was actually discovered on September 7, 2013 by Australian amateur astronomer Terry Livejoy, and IT specialist by day.

This is Terry Lovejoy’s 4th comet.

His C/2011 W3 (Lovejoy), only visible, alas in the southern hemisphere, was a doozy!

Terry Lovejoy’s 2011 doozy, C/2011 W3 (Lovejoy) — the ‘great of 2011’, though viewing was restricted to the southern hemisphere.

C/2013 R1, since November 2013, at an apparent magnitude of +5 is in theory naked eye visible.

It is due to perihelion on December 22, 2013.

So it will continue to get brighter.

So if you are pining for poor ISON assuage your sorrows by trying to get a gander at the latest Lovejoy. Cannot Register Legal U.S. Permanent Residents, i.e., Green Card Holders. Code NOT Written Yet!

Another lie by Obama. was NOT designed to

If we can’t register, I guess we can’t be fined …

This is such a farce.

This is such a fraud.

Bullying At Alton Central School (ACS), N. H. Raises Its Vicious, Ugly Head Again. It Is Endemic To This School.

Yet again it has hit close to home.

I will not divulge too much right now …

Yet again this is not restricted to peer-to-peer bullying between kids.

But meticulous records are being kept and there is much happening yet again.

After months of apathy, as I had already mentioned, there has been a sudden spurt of interest
at the ACS School Board and bullying.

Here are the latest stats.

I think there is a culture of bullying at ACS.

I have been dreading this day for months.

I saw it on the news just after 6 p.m.
while dealing with more bullying at Alton Central School (ACS).
Though I was distracted and distraught about this
never ending bullying at ACS
seeing this on TV stopped me in my tracks.
I immediately had a knot in my stomach.

I knew that a very important part of my life had come to an end.

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela
will always be with me
… in my mind, in my actions and in terms of what inspires me.

Thank YOU Mr, Mandela for all you did for ME.

I would be in even worse shape if not for YOUR inspiration and example.

I have cried openly for Nelson many times.

I wept the day he was released from prison.

I cried when he was sworn in as President.

I have yet to cry ‘today’.

I don’t think it has sunk in today.

I think the tears will come when I see the body.
