The Golden Retriever In The “King Midas” Commercial By Midas?

by Anura Guruge

Where did they get that Golden Retriever in the ‘King Midas‘ commercial?

He/she is cute enough, as ALL Goldens are, by definition, BUT … come on!

Is there a particular reason that he/she appears in the commercial as opposed to a more representative Golden?

OK. I admit it and those that know me, know this about me. I am a SNOB when it comes to Goldens.

Yes, I love Goldens, and that goes without caveats. But, I am also very ‘fussy’ about Goldens.

The Midas Golden is “OK” … but, but, but.

I am not going to any much, since I could get into trouble.

But, that Golden could do with a coat of Gold! Nough said …

And, just in case you are wondering, I am FINE with older Goldens. Ulysses, the 4th of the 6 Goldens I have had, lived to be 14.

“North American Power” 9.29cent/kWh Rate For 2-Years, In New Hampshire.

The 8.59¢/kWh rate I was lucky enough to get in October 2016, i.e., a year ago, ALAS, came to an end.

9.29¢/kWh was the best that I could get, as of October 2017 — BUT I managed to get it for 2 years, i.e., until October 2019.

I think I am cool with that. That is exactly the rate I signed-up for in 2015. So, I am not a stranger to it. Obviously better than any of the other rates offered by North American Power. So that is good.

I did some research. I am happy with that rate (I think). {Smile}

All of these were taken on Friday, October 20 & Saturday, October 21 in Alton — albeit at the two ends, some in East Alton and others in West Alton. We haven’t had much rain to knock the leaves off. So the show continues in all its splendid glory. Enjoy.
