Well, I guess I get the credit for breaking the news that she was trying to fly the coop 13 days ahead of today’s news.

I am now very confused. Am I the ONLY one in Alton or ACS that thinks that she is the cat’s whiskers as opposed to what the cat dragged in.

A neighbor on this road, an Alton Central mother with two kids at school, just stopped by to tell Deanna the news and she was ‘cock a hoop’! Her first words were: I am going into town to get some champagne!

I am in shock.

When, the by comparison, very saintly Bonnie Kuras left, I remember hearing that she was the ‘xth ACS principal in n-years’ — and the ‘x’ was quite large. I can’t remember the details but it was something like the average tenure was under 5 years.

Not sure how long Leggett has been around. Was it two exciting, eventful years?

Wow.

I can’t, alas, afford champagne, so I will just have to raise two glasses of red to drown my sorrows.

Well, now that she is gone the School Board that voted 3-2 against ‘Common Core’ will have an easier task of dismantling CC at ACS.

So now what?

I am GLAD she got the job — though I am, personally, crushed that she will no longer be around to bully me around, as she liked to do.

So will it be Mikel Lachapelle? The impressive Mrs. Forbes. Will they bring back Dear Mr. Steve Ross — who I still like.


Perambulating At Dusk In Delightful Wolfeboro, N.H. Mainly On The Snow Packed “Cotton Valley Rail Trail”.

Click to ENLARGE. Last night’s near divine walk, 7:05 – 8:10 pm.


Last night was my first walk, in the evening, along ‘The Trail‘ — while Devanee was at her weekly ‘Clearlakes Chorale‘ practice. Last week, given that I had slogged up Prospect Mountain Road in the morning, I only did 1/4 of the walk — mainly because Deanna wanted me to pick up some stuff for Teischan’s birthday at ‘Rite Aid‘. Rather than drive, I walked.

Last night was an ideal evening for walking. I think it was about 35F. Perfect as far as I am concerned. Not too cold, not too hot!

So tranquil. So picturesque. The Lakes Region, at its best, while there is still ice on the lakes. Crescent Lake is melting — and melting fast.

‘The Trail’, extensively used by snowmobilers, was frozen, icy, rutted — and slushy and muddy in parts. So it was a bit heavy going. I did not want to fall and break anything because I would not hear the end of it from Deanna. Plus since there was no other soul of the trail it would have been awkward if I had to drag myself back to the road.

Provided it is not raining cats and dogs, or it isn’t one of my days off per my ‘3 days on, 1 day off’ schedule, I will be walking this route every Thursday night into June (when we have the Spring concert) and then again from September till Christmas (when we have the Christmas concert).

You should definitely try this trail. It is beautiful. If you can walk it at dusk. The lights from the houses make it magical. And it is so peaceful. Another world.

I love it.

I get back … and then I get to listen to the Chorale. They were in very fine form last night. I feel blessed. 


Congratulations Belknap County, N.H. Per WMUR (Channel 9) Survey Only 27% Adults Obese.

Way to GO Belknap.

Click to access WMUR survey. As is to be expected "Coors" County is the most obese. But, come on. Not fair. They need to pack the fat up there to survive in that semi-Arctic climate. So you have to cut them slack. Why else do we call them "Coors" County. They have to stock up on beer as antifreeze for the body.

Yes, of course, I can be impartial, aloof and maybe even cussed about this because I had no skin in this and continue not to have any. It all happened after I was long gone and it never really touched me.

But, I have heard much of the rumblings and accusations, against both sides, after the war.

My take on this is as a Brit and a cricketer — and I am saying this because the majority of Sri Lankan’s still love their cricket and understand the phrase it is just not cricket.

IF you belong to a club YOU have to adhere to its rules, try to change them procedurally and, if you can’t, and it still rankles you — get the hell out.

Just a few months ago the Sri Lankans were glibly talking about leaving the Commonwealth because they were miffed that certain Commonwealth Heads of State had concerns about human rights violations during the war. Well why aren’t they talking about leaving the U.N.?

To me, and again see opening line, this resolution is NOT a big deal. Yes, Sri Lankan pride, never far from the surface, has been bruised. Well, that is life in the BIG World.

What is this ‘investigation’ going to do? 25 years from now nobody will recall this. Look at the countries that voted for it. Chile! Mexico! Sierra Leone! Come on. Talk about the ‘pottle’ calling the kettle black.

OK. Just to assuage the collective ego throw some tantrums over the next few days … then either shut up let them do their thing … or leave the U.N. and get on with it.


Malaysian Airlines HM370: Russians Did It To Divert Attention From Ukraine?

Bingo!

I knew it would come to me, in a blinding “Road to Damascus” flash, in time.

It Did.

All part of the elaborate Ukrainian plan.

Without this MAJOR diversion CNN, Fox and the evening news
would be totally absorbed with the Ukraine.

Now Ukraine gets 2 minutes, at the end, as an afterthought.

All fits in.

Obama is delighted. Without MH370 he would be feeling so much more heat. Now he can go play nice with the pope while cable news prattles on, mindless, about MH370.

Russians have done it before. KAL 007.

Take all your parameters and plug them into this hypothesis.

The Russian flew MH370 along the Northern Corridor to Russia. They have the technology and the know-how to send out bogus radar pings.

They are manipulating the current farce.

The U.S. is keeping ‘mum’ because it suits Obama well to have MH370 in the news, 24×7, as long as possible.

Come On. This theory makes more sense that any of the others. Admit it!
