New Hampshire’s #1 Lobster Roll in 2017!

It was Father’s Day, and as such I could pick — and I picked “Poor People’s Pub“.

I had only been there once before, on April 29, 2017, for their 43rd birthday bash — but, I liked what I had and what I saw. My kind of place given that I am very much a ‘Shake It‘ kind of person. You have to go there to see what that is all about. {SMILE}

I had a good time. It was around 1:30pm and that is a tad too early for I. So, I had just their hot dog special and their roast beef sandwich, sans the bread and chips. Yes, just the meat. I brought all the carbs home for the dogs.

It is a fun place and I like the location. Great place to take pictures.

Jimbo, the ‘Hobo’, nor any of the family was around and that was a shame and a loss. They were, quite rightly, celebrating Father’s Day away from the maddening crowd.

Devanee had the lobster roll, New Hampshire’s BEST per WMUR — with or without Russian help in the voting — and liked it. Deanna, the lobsterman’s daughter, refused to have lobster in New Hampshire on the grounds that we are going to Maine twice and she would rather eat lobster there — close to the ocean! I wanted meat and the hot dog special was right up my alley — as was also the case with Teischan.

The house red was GOOD. Much appreciated.

Well, I will be going back again …


The carbs I brought back for the dogs. It is OK.
They get plenty of exercise, running and swimming.

USS Fitzgerald Collison: A Better Map Of Strange Course Change …

One hour time discrepancy changes EVERYTHING!

USS Fitzgerald ACX Crystal collision Anura Guruge

Monday, June 19, 2017 map showing where the
USS Fitzgerald likely was.

Even better maps from the U.K. “Daily Mail“.

Original map I posted in my 1st post on the USS Fitzgerald.


The above map, from the BBC, really highlights the inexplicable course change by the 730′ Filipino-flagged container ship ACX Crystal.

It doubles back on itself not once, BUT twice! And that was when the collision occurred, during this v. strange U-turn maneuver. What was it trying to do? Very suspicious.

But, that said the USS Fitzgerald should not have seen it all — visually and on radar, not to mention the ‘Collision Avoidance System‘ (CAS) that all modern ships have.

This article in Wired is worth glancing at:

At least 8 dogs are already ready for adoption.
Use ‘Humane Society’ link above for details.

This suffice to say is extremely distressing and aggravating even if you are not a dog person (as we are). Deanna saw this earlier today and was most upset and wanted me to cover it ASAP.

It is hard to fathom how this could have gone on for this long, in affluent Wolfeboro — the ‘Oldest Summer Resort in America’ and home to celebrities like Mitt Romney NOT to mention the world capital of heated driveways to avoid shoveling snow. Yes, to be fair the mansion is on a back road in a very secluded part of town.

I am very fond of Wolfeboro and my association with Wolfeboro goes back 26 years. Wolfeboro is a beautiful town and some of the nicest people I know either live or work there. So, I hate seeing stuff like this associated with Wolfeboro. There was a move to boycott Wolfeboro in 2014 because of its then openly racist police chief. But, that, luckily, is behind us now. But, there is still a dark cloud over Wolfeboro — the ‘unsolved’ murder of local mother Stacey Burns over 8 years ago! This horror as such is another black eye for Wolfeboro.

The police and all the associated agencies appear to have done well in terms of the rescue and the arrest. But, that still begs the question as to how this could have gone on for this long without anybody suspecting anything.

This sorry incident raises a number of issues and the need for some New Hampshire laws to be changed:

  1. Appears that the perpetrator of this evil, Christina Fay, despite her apparent wealth, will NOT be on the hook to pay for ANY of the huge costs that will be associated with taking care of these 84 dogs! That is wrong, wrong, wrong. The law should be changed, at once, to make sure that perpetrators are fully liable for all costs and that the State can go after all of their property.
  2. It appears that she managed to skirt the requirements for a Commercial Breeder License. That too is wrong. How can you have 84 dogs and still claim not to be a Commercial Breeder, That has to be looked into.
  3. Right now she has only been charged with two misdemeanors! 84-dogs and only two misdemeanors. That is NOT right.
