I will NOT let winter darkness get the better of I. I will prevail. I will defy the darkness, spit on it.
So, I, with the help of rechargeable batteries, prove to the world that darkness can be kept at Bay.
I got this, this afternoon at 3:17pm on Fast.com. It was Sunday and the Internet, by its standards, was not as busy as on a weekday.
Made me SMILE.
I am COOL.
This did NOT surprise us. Alton Central School (ACS) is Teischan’s school and Devanee also went there. So, we know ACS well — which is also why both Teischan & Devanee were homeschooled at various times.
We got these September 2019 test results last week. When I saw them I knew that ACS was in trouble — because I know Teischan and if she is this much ahead of the school, the other kids are sunk!
The NH EDies are a SHAM. I think they are a ‘pay for play’ Vanity Plate scheme. Yes, they will argue that their awards take into account more than academics. But, if a school is failing on academics it can’t really have a claim to excellence.
Well the charts above tell everything that needs to be told.
Schooling in NH leaves much to be desired.

Now that I am on a mission and roll, I am continually adding to my repertoire.
Got a string of eight flame effect lights that we hung on the so called ‘family tree’. Also got some battery-powered LED lights, which can glow white, red or green, for my lamps. So, I can dispense with candles. Yes, I had to order a bunch of rechargeable AAA batteries. The cold kills batteries in days.
Not done yet. The Christmas lights will go up soon.
Robert Charity Of ‘Charity Electric’, Barnstead — One Fine, Dependable, Competent Electrician Serving Central New Hampshire.

Robert Charity was recommended to I by a builder in Barnstead — the Dad of a friend of mine. When I had told him that I needed some wiring done, he, with nary a hesitation said: “Robert Charity, of Charity Electric, is your man“. He was dead right.
Robert did the external Cat 7 ethernet wiring I needed to complete my TDS 1 Gigabit installation.
Robert Charity was a delight to deal with from the get go. No messing around. He was responsive, prompt and a man of his word.
He does good work. Very careful, very diligent, very thorough and extremely competent. A son of an electrician (from Mass.) he sure knows his stuff. He is very reasonable too when it comes to pricing. I was very impressed and pleased.
He specializes in backup generators and IF I ever get one it would be from him and no one else.
Another Heartwarming Example Of Human Ingenuity — A ‘Snap-On’, On/Off Ice Crampon For Walking Sticks.
In my old age and my increasing infirmity I am, these days, never far from a walking stick. You will rarely see me outside without one. At the last count (this morning) I now have seven (yes, 7) active walking sticks stashed around the garage and house so that I can always easily have one at hand.
Given that we live in the arctic circle and winter is here, a big concern is that of I slipping on ice (as I did on February 28) and further damaging my already deteriorating body. So, I went ‘Googling’ on Amazon. I had faith in human ingenuity. Didn’t take long to find the above.
Beyond perfect. The DAMN thing folds up, at the snap of a finger. Brilliant. Love it. Tried it out today. Great.
Isn’t human ingenuity just so GREAT.
