COVID-19 NH: Testing STILL NOT Available To All In N.H.; Even If You Are In Hospital!

We are over 2-months into THE pandemic & TESTING in New Hampshire is FAR from available to all.

Just to a very limited SUBSET.

So here is the kicker.

I heard from somebody who is IN HOSPITAL — at New Hampshire’s FAMED ‘Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center‘ (DHMC) in Lebanon. A research & teaching hospital no less. They don’t have enough tests. You have to meet the age or employment criteria or have symptoms. IF not, you can’t have it. That is STUPID. That is crazy.

I heard that New York is now doing a MILLION tests a week.

Well, a million tests would just about cover ALL of New Hampshire.

But, we don’t have enough tests!

And NOBODY is mentioning this.

I meet the over-60 criteria. So, I can get one.

I don’t want one. Don’t see the point. Right now, I have no symptoms.

They can tell me I am negative & I could be positive 24-hours later. I could have caught it by going for the test.

Would be SLIGHTLY more interested in the antibody test. But, even that, right now, would be a waste. I really haven’t had any symptoms. So, very UNLIKELY I had it without I realizing it. Given my age & poor heath, I would have KNOWN it even if I had a touch. So, I am not going to deprive a more worthy person from getting a test.

But, thought YOU should know.

Tulips Galore In Chichester, New Hampshire — May 19, 2020.

I am lucky enough to have spend a lot of time in Holland (quite a bit of it on work (doing seminars)) — the TULIP CAPITAL of the World. So, I have seen miles & miles of tulips.

This wasn’t, of course, as extensive, BUT it was still pretty gosh IMPRESSIVE & awfully pretty. I had to stop, get out & take some pictures.

It is veterinary practice. They spend a fortune on landscaping. SMILE.

Enjoy. SMILE.

COVID-19 NH: Hardly Any Outdoor Dining In State Capital, Concord (N.H.)

by Anura Guruge

It was 11:30am, on a Sunny (but a tad mild (@60F)), Tuesday — 2nd day that New Hampshire restaurants were open for outdoor dining.

But, it was ALL empty or NOT set up.

We just saw two folks, a mother & daughter — & I drove up/down North & South Main St. as well as Loudon Road.

‘Red Arrow’ diner had picnic tables outside but was only doing takeout — and they were NOT busy.

I was sure (that my friend) Alex Ray’sCommon Man” would not only be all set-up, BUT BUSY. I was wrong. It was empty. Not set-up for outdoor dining. That makes no sense. They have a huge car park ideal for it.

So …

So?

What gives?

Just time?

This week, from what I see, will be kind in terms of weather. No heavy rain. Doesn’t look good.

Stopped by “Dominick’s“, in Chichester, on the way back. Another joint with a HUGE car park. EMPTY with a sign on the door that said “CLOSED”.

I was amused by her (and yes, it is a ‘her’) message on the sign.

Does SHE realize the coded message that was in THE SONG?

Help from my friends‘. HHHmmmm. SMILE.

I am sure. That would definitely help. SMILE.
