We had to alas forgo the evening part of Alton “Old Home Day” 2015, despite the concert by our favorites “Annie & the Orphans“, because it was also the last evening of “Huggins Fair” in Wolfeboro. It was a painful decision but, to be honest, not a hard one. Very few things take precedence over the last evening of Huggins. That is when we now go to the Fair and it is very much an entrenched annual event in the Guruge family calendar. Yes, we were hoping to get back early enough to see ‘Annie’ but it didn’t work out as we had planned.
We got to the Alton just around 9pm. I wasn’t sure whether we would be able to even get close to the Bay. I expected it to be packed. I was wrong. There was hardly any crowds by the bridge, at the head of the Bay, and definitely no traffic. We just drove in and parked within 150 yards of the Bridge, at a legal parking spot, on the road. ‘The Orphans’ were just winding down. Compared to prior years there was hardly anybody on the bridge — the BEST place to watch the pictures as pictures testify. Not sure why. Great weather. Not a hint of precipitation and very temperate.
The fireworks were par for the course for Alton. Not overtly spectacular. But they were ‘OK’ and as I tell the kids, all fireworks, by definition are ‘good’ and it is always a privilege to watch a public firework display. Much of it, like 12 minutes, as is always the case, was hesitant, humdrum and lackluster. But to be fair there were a few good ones interspersed and three exploded prematurely, right above the barge, which provided some excitement. And then there is always the decent finale which makes up for all that went ahead. So it was OK. It was good. Glad we went. Not sure why others were not there to partake.

Yet again the Maldives come up as possibly where MH370 came ‘to rest’ — 18 MONTHS after I, very publicly, pointed out, on March 15, 2014, that ‘they’ should look around the Maldive Islands.
There were Islanders claiming, within the day of MH370 going missing, that they saw a large white plane flying low over the Islands. But, ‘they’ REFUSED to look around the Maldives. Why?
This has continued to bother me. Something BIG happened. And there has been one heck of a COVER UP. At last the relatives of the MH370 passengers are coming to realize that they have been duped, right royally duped, for 18 months.
Here are some key questions YOU need to think about.
1/ Is it in anyway conceivable that the Unites States has NO satellite imagery of the Indian Ocean? That defies credulity. MH370 was in the air for at least 6 hours. The U.S. has some satellite imagery of it. Of that I have NO doubt. What has always puzzled me is WHY people have not been agitating about this. There has to be decent people around who know what kind of imaging capabilities the U.S. possesses and I am sure that the capabilities are extensive. So this begs the question why has the U.S. kept mum for so long and why haven’t world leaders called upon the U.S. to divulge the G-2 that they must possess?
2/ Did a U.S. fighter accidentally shoot down MH370? Happens?
3/ As I have talked about before was MH370 sent on a ‘fishing trip’, as was the ill-fated Korean KAL-007, and things didn’t turn out too well?
4/ I have a fairly good ideas as to why Australia did the cover-up act for as long as they did. Australia has always been a good ally to Western powers. Just think WW I and II. They had to have been asked to provide a smoke screen and they ably did that for months — though they knew that it was hurting their credibility.
The Maldives, in my opinion, holds the key to solving the MH370 mystery. But what I cannot, for the world of me, understand is why people just won’t start looking around the Islands. What are they covering up?
