She found it on the grass, on Sunday, at her sister’s ‘farm’ in Maine. It couldn’t fly. One of its wings looked ripped. Her sister picked it up and gave it to Deanna. It immediately made it self comfortable on her sweater. The rest is history. She decided that she is going to try and rescue it.
It was given sugar water, fruits etc. And then a flower. It seemed happy enough. We brought it home. That was 2-days ago.
It seems happy enough. It moves about and appears to be eating.
I know nothing about butterflies other than that they are pretty. I don’t even know how long they live. But, so far, so good. It is neat to have it in the kitchen.
I will try and keep you posted. I hope it hangs around for awhile.
I CANCELLED My ‘Atlantic Broadband’ (ABB) Internet Service — Last Outage Was The Final Straw (Metrocast Customer Since 1997).
I had been a customer for 22-years — starting in Meredith (NH) in 1997.
But, there is only so much abuse that even I am willing to tolerate.
Well, I am NOT going to lose Internet. SMILE.
For the last 4-years or so I have always had TWO (2) Internet feeds to the house: one from ABB & the other from TDS. So, yes, we have two separate Wi-Fi networks (actually 3 since one of our routers is dual-band).
For now, I, like most normal folk, will just have ONE (1) Internet service — from TDS over dedicated fiber to the wall.
And YES, I am going the Full Monty.
I am getting 1 Gigabit Internet.
As a backup we will use cellular Hotspots and I am going to get unlimited data on all our phones.
Just had it, just had it with BLOODY, scummy ABB.
Yes, TDS has outages too. But, never like bloody ABB. I know. I keep track. You can check. Use my ‘search’ feature and look for ‘outage’. SMILE.

I had tickets, bought & PAID, 4-minutes
after they went on sale!
Buying tickets for Christmas Revels the DAY they go on sale to the public has been a cherished, yearly ritual for at least the last 8-years. It used to be for ‘Revels North‘ (at Dartmouth) and it had to be the front row.
The last few years we have been going to the ‘mothership’, the original Revels in Cambridge, Mass at the incomparably beautiful Sanders Theatre. We like the center balcony seats. At first I only managed to get the 2nd row — which wasn’t bad. But, I wanted to very front row. Last year I succeeded! I had my finger on the button at 12:00 so I can get in. Obviously MEMBERS had been able to buy tickets for a ‘month’ prior to I so quite few seats were gone.
This year was going to be difficult. We were in Maine for a wedding. We would have been checked out of the hotel by noon, so it was IMPERATIVE that we were somewhere with reliable Wi-Fi well ahead of noon. We went to my sister-in-law’s place. I had all the credentials (URL, passwords, seat numbers) in TRIPLICATE — on paper & electronically. I do not take chances. Worked out. SMILE. More seats had been booked by members this year than last. But, I still snagged 5 front row seats. They are good. We are happy. We already know who is seated where!
I am happy. See you there. Cheers.

This is how she came home on Monday, October 21, 2019. They had had a long 4.5-day weekend off and it was hard for her to go back to school. So, this is what she did to keep herself occupied.
She gets bored at school — gets bored a lot. But, unlike others she does not, any longer, doodle on her notebooks or folder covers.
Very impressive. Looks like henna or even a glove.
