Interesting slides. I thought YOU might enjoy seeing it. So the State component of our Property Taxes only account for 16.4%. Wow, Meals and Rooms tax. Nearly 12%. I guess that is how we tap into the tourist traffic. $98 million from Interest and Dividends tax. A quick back of a napkin calculation shows that that would mean that all of the TAX PAYING residents of NH make about $1.2 Billion/year from Interest and Dividend. That seems a tad on the light side. Maybe I am wrong on that. Maybe that is a lot. I will have to ask around. I am, however, so relieved to realize that I am not the only one paying it.

Interesting stuff. Food for thought, maybe matter for nightmares.

Yes, of course, it needs to be a GLOBAL event, BUT it has to start somewhere.

So why not New Hampshire.

The Governor can make it happen in New Hampshire with a simple proclamation. That will get the ball rolling. But, N.H., as with the Presidential Primaries, will always be able to boast that it was the first.

As you know, we do know the Governor. I reminded her of that.

Yes, I am very serious about this. I already have a list of folks that I am going to contact, but Governor Maggie Hassan was #1.

Had a letter in the mail, today, offering me this 8.99c/kWh rate for the remainder of 2015.

Well, what have I got to lose. In December, when their rate goes up I will just switch back to PSNH as I did in December 2014 from ENH when their rates went up 44%.

Just wanted to share this with YOU.

Yes, the Eversore/PSNH rate, right now, is indeed 10.56c/kWh. I double checked. So the NAP rate is lower — at least till December 2015.

So think about.

I have been using Alternate Suppliers for about 4 years now. You just have to stay on top of them.

OK? I will keep you posted.

All the best.

** As I said 3 days ago I had no doubts, right from the minute I heard about the torn up doctor’s notes, that he was on antidepressants. To me that explained, right away, one of the reasons why he would continue going to see doctors — when he did NOT like what they were telling him. He had to see doctors to renew his antidepressant prescriptions and he would have done that because many of these medications are addictive and he would not have wanted to go without them.

** Yes, Lufthansa will do its utmost to avoid blame on this, citing every conceivable law. And it is possible that they were well within their rights per the prevailing laws.

** I think there were 3 U.S. citizens on board, so U.S. lawyers will be involved and I already saw one on TV talking about it.

** Of course Lufthansa will not want to contemplate unlimited damages. 

** Yes, it will be years, many, many years before a judgement is reached — and then the fun will begin as to whether Lufthansa will be around to pay up. Sad.

What can I really say other than it was
just absolutely, blinking BRILLIANT.

Such a joy and privilege to be there. Tremendous, jubilant atmosphere. Everybody just happy, convivial and glad to be a part of this wonderful, uplifting event.

IF you have not been to one of these you really can’t imagine what you are missing. Not sure how many of these we have been to. Definitely to at least 10. We realized that we have had the same table, the 2nd by the windows from the stage, at least for the last 4 years. Yes, we are regulars — for the 6pm ‘slot’.
