‘Art Harriman’ Leaves Sandwich Fair After 38-Years As Master Of Ceremonies.

Art Harriman, the World record holder for playing the smallest harmonica ever (1″), has been a fixture at Sandwich Fair, N.H., for the 20-years or more that we have been attending.

Monday, October 10, 2016, was, however, his last appearance at Sandwich Fair. It transpires that he has been there, every year, without fail for 38 years! That would mean that he has been there, regaling the punters, since 1978. That is a long time.

I did not know this but it transpires that “Common Man” founder/owner, Alex Ray (who has been providing food at Sandwich for 40 unbroken years), was instrumental in bringing Art to the Fair. Thank you Alex.

My friends, “Annie and The Orphans” have been performing at Sandwich for over 28-years (with a few years gap several years ago). Ironically I called up Art, on the phone, and spoke to him about getting “Annie and The Orphans” back to Sandwich. He was very gracious.

Annie and The Orphans” & Alex Ray gave Art quite the farewell, “Annie …” doing an extended 90(+) minute set. It was moving, but kind of sad. Definitely the end of an era.

Thank YOU, Mr. Art Harriman.

Sandwich will never be the same to us without YOU. We have never known Sandwich without you standing on the stage.

Getting WordPress Post, With Image, To Appear, With Image, On Facebook.

by Anura Guruge

Basically achieving this
between WordPress and Facebook.

I want my WordPress posts, which invariably have an image,
to appear on Facebook, with the SAME image, and a built-in, clickable link.

Like this.


Just trying to paste the link to Facebook results in unpredictable results.

Often the image is NOT displayed or they display the WRONG image without you getting the option to select the right one.

It appears that you can fix it by using a Facebook developer tool. Use this link to get it. Now book mark it and keep it.

You are going to access that Facebook tool (called the ‘Link Debugger’) each time you want to post a link. A bit of an hassle, no doubt, BUT you will get the results you want. I have been successfully using it since yesterday and have done about 10 posts — all ‘OK’, first time.

This is the step-by-step process.


This is what you will get when you access the above “Facebook Developer” link. Paste your link into the ‘show’ trench and hit “DEBUG”.


You will get this screen. Hit “FETCH NEW INFORMATION”.


You will next get this screen. You can IGNORE this screen! For real. Now copy the WordPress post link AGAIN and paste it into YOUR Facebook timeline STATUS ‘box’. Bingo. Bob’s your uncle.
