I got this by e-mail earlier this morning.

It appears to be something that they cobbled together for the picture. It is, nonetheless, cute and tickled my fancy. I don’t think you can actually order it per se. I can only find it in ‘hamper’ form without the wheels.

Click to access Kapruka. NO they are, alas, NOT paying me for this excellent publicity. Being Sri Lankan they are most likely very close to their dollar (and rupee).

‘Modern Dance’ isn’t something I normally watch. But, this was GOOD. Wow, the talent!

We heard about it when we had gone to the rousing Red Hot Chilli Pipers’ concert in February. Deanna and the kids wanted to go, so I got tickets — though that was a bit of a hassle. I actually ended up getting 8 tickets — and giving four to some folks in Gilford. We actually all met at Concord UNO’s before the show for dinner. A good time was had by all.

I don’t watch “Dancing with the Stars” or “American Idol“. So some of the stars on this show were lost on me, but I could still enjoy the whole experience. Very nice people. Their talent just amazes me. Wow.

Good night out. The music, alas not live, was pulsating and on the mark. The dancing was sensuous, very expressive and energetic.

It was, however, strictly ‘modern’ with some tango. Given that they teased us twice I thought they might do some ‘River Dance‘. They did not. But that OK.

It was very good. Go see them if you can.

Thank YOU again, “William G. Gile” trust for this FREE concert. Much appreciated.

I have met two of the Montana daughters — albeit c. 2001. They actually came to visit with ME — in Gilford.
One of them tried to convince me that I should wear a crystal around my neck to protect me
from harmful radiations from computer screens. Sadly I refuse to wear ANYTHING around my neck other than a tie.


DISH No Longer, At Least For Time Being, Not Carrying New Hampshire WMUR (Channel 9) TV.

Would appear that WMUR has gone dark on DISH.

Don’t have DISH so I can’t tell. I haven’t checked whether I still get it on DirecTV. I don’t watch WMUR that much. Typically check their headlines, on the Web, around midnight. Only really watch it, and even then just the weather, when we are having or expecting snow. I get my TV news from CNN, CNBC, MSNBC, Fox and NBC — in that order, with 80% of my TV news time coming from the first two.

So just a heads up.

WMUR is easily available on the Web.

They do point out that you can, if you are in the right location, and the wind is just right, snatch their signal from the air — provided you have the right antenna. I would not know. It has been at least 20 years since I have used a TV antenna! I did happen to look at some, for a ‘friend’, a couple of months ago. Would appear you can get a decent HD antenna from Walmart or Radio Shack for under $20. I didn’t buy one. So can’t tell you whether they work.
