2014 – 2015 rates for 103 towns.

1/ N.H. 2013 – 2014 tax rates — Nov. 9, 2014.
2/ N.H. 2012 – 2013 tax rates — Nov. 26, 2012.

Alton is not alone. The fully tally of towns is 224 — or that was what it was last year. Today, November 7, 2014, we have 143 towns reporting. So we are 81 short — Alton plus 80 more.

Last year, i.e., 2013, we had the 224 in on November 9th.

Well Sunday is November 9th and we know that these numbers will NOT get posted over the weekend. They get posted on Fridays. So it will be November 14, 2014. So at least 5 days behind. If Alton makes that cut, as it probably should, they still wouldn’t be able to get the tax bills out before November 20th, if that. So, joy of joys, Alton property tax, for those of us that bother to pay, will be due just before Christmas.

earingbackings

Click to ENLARGE. I gather, from Deanna, that you can get them from places that sell earrings.


Deanna came up with the solution when she read yesterday’s post about folks, including I, losing our Canadian Red Poppies.

Plastic earring backings. Slip one, I would actually go with the ‘belt-and-braces’ with two, onto the back of the pin. That will also stop you getting stuck with it. BRILLIANT.

Pass this on. The Canadian Poppy should come with one of these backings already on it.

I know enough Canadians read this blog. Pass this along PLEASE.

More good news. I am getting some new Canadian Red Poppies to make up for the one that I lost. A Sri Lankan friend in Canada. I asked him whether he would oblige. He will. I offered to pay. He is refusing payment. I met him through his interest in the popes. He is a good Catholic who had a first class Catholic education in Sri Lanka. I am going to send him my last two pope books.

So this is all good. I am happy.

This was contained in the 7 paragraph ‘addendum’ released by the Vatican on Wednesday on the new rules governing the resignation of Catholic bishops.

To a papal historian such as I, the pope thinking that he needs to JUSTIFY his power, to do ANYTHING when it comes to the Church, is both ludicrous and scary.

The Pope has ABSOLUTE, autocratic power on Earth. Period. There is no authority, within the Church hierarchy, that can judge the pope. There is no ‘Supreme Court’ that can hear a case about a decision made by the pope.

The Pope only answers to God. As long as he stays within the property that counts as the “Vatican City State” no other power can touch him.

Other heads of state will gladly part with important body parts to have 70% of the power that a pope has.

This is CRAZY.

This pope has said a lot of incongruous things, BUT that he felt the need to do this really defies belief.

This pope is scary. This was scary.

I hope not.

One of those beautiful poppies is MINE.
Deanna paid quite a bit for it, in August,
as a birthday present for me.

But, I understand the call for it to be extended.

It cannot be PERMANENT.
That would destroy the piquancy
of what it was supposed to represent.
Like those that fell, the poppies that still
grow in the fields of Flanders
these poppies too must fade away
from the field BUT not from memory.

When I saw this I had to share it.

I lost one of my 2 Canadian Poppies last year.
Fell right off my jacket during a presentation.
I was very distressed.

I wore my remaining one last week.
Had a devil’s own job keeping it on.

Today I offered a friend in Canada US $10
to send me 5 Canadian Red Poppies.
The way I figured it is that I will lose
a couple more.

To be on the safe side I have been
wearing my Poppy pins.
