Winter Storm Names For The Rest Of ‘This’ 2018 Winter — Now That Hunter & Inga Have Come & Gone.

I don’t have a problem with having names for the storms. Kind of cute and MAYBE it will help me remember them. When you get as many, each winter, as we do, up here in New Hampshire, they all kind of blur, and blend into each other. With the ever increasing heights of the snow piles a constant reminder as to how much snow we did get. I also tend to remember how many times we lost power!

Hunter, last week, was all rain and washed away TONS of snow and I do mean that quite literally!

Inga, today, was gentle and kind. I can live with Ingas.

What is scary is that I know people with MOST of these names.

I do NOT think we have enough names to get us till March — April 2018.

Winter Storm Inga, January 17, 2018, In New Hampshire — Rather Pretty & Far From Dastardly.

Schools were cancelled in Alton as we knew they would be — and that is FINE with me. Better safe than sorry when it comes to kids, always. Plus I like having the kids home — and when they are home they have to help me shovel! {Smile}

As snow goes this was a piece of cake. Light, fluffy snow — contrary to the forecast — that was easy enough to shovel. Don’t think we got that much in total — maybe 7″ max — though it snowed for about 24 hours.

The three of us went out at 10:15am and by 10:40am we had the driveway totally cleared — per the picture above. It looks messy, and that is because it continued to snow while we shoveled. But, we removed the accumulation.

We, three, went back shortly after 4pm and spent another 25-minutes or so. I had the drive to the blacktop. Also shoveled out the mailbox. I was happy. Easy peasy. And it wasn’t cold. I was sweating during the morning shovel and that is always good. I do NOT want to end up like Trump.

“Victoria” Season 2, On PBS “Masterpiece”, Now — Continues The Magnificence Of Season 1, Seamlessly.

by Anura Guruge





Outstanding. We finished watching the first two episodes of “Victoria“, Season 2, shown back-to-back on Sunday, January 14, 2018, on Tuesday night.

It just carried on from Season 1 with nary a dissapointment. Yes, the Queen’s dresser, the lady from Wales, has left but that is about it.

Maintains the same, well-paced cadence. Beautifully shot. It is indeed a Masterpiece.

A definite MUST WATCH.

Sales Of Propecia, Trump’s Anti-Baldness Drug, Will Go Through The Roof — Buy MRK Shares.

Shares of ‘Propecia’ maker Merck & Co. (MRK). From ‘marketwatch.com’ — where else?



Wow! Best plug Merck (MRK) has had in years. Will do wonders for the sales of PropeciaErectile Dysfunction (ED) or no dysfunction.

This will be great for shares of MRK.

MRK shares, as you can see from the graph above, have already taken off. But, at ~$62 you should definitely get some.

I was curious as to why my doctors had put me on Cardura for prostate health rather than Propecia — given that I need all the help I can get when it comes to retaining the little hair I have. Now, I know. My doctors have always known what is important to me. Hair or ED? I don’t think that there is even a choice.

But, buy MRK. You will thank me. Don’t take Propecia. You will thank me.

IF South Africa Loses 2nd Test To India — DESERVED To Lose For Playing Like Pillocks.

I am writing this U.S. Eastern Time (21:00) having only seen half of the Day 4 highlights. Plan to watch the rest within the next hour — while having my customary late dinner.

I like South Africa (and the players) and as you can see here celebrated when they won the 1st Test.

I can’t believe some of the stupid mistakes they have made in the 2nd Test — especially when batting.

Vernon Philander’s runout was INEXCUSABLE. It is not like he is new to the game. What had he been chewing? His bowling was also below par.

Hashim Amla’s runout broke my heart. He was run out. He is such a phlegmatic, nice guy. He should not have gone for that run. If he hadn’t been run out he would have easily scored another 40-runs — easy. That would have made all the difference.

AB de Villiers, of course, batter well, in both innings BUT his dismissal in the 2nd innings, caught behind, off his glove, was NOT worthy of a player of his experience, talent and stature. Come ON. You could have weaved out of the way better, or stepped back and whacked it. It is dismissals like that that lose matches.

IF they WIN, Virat Kohli, as ever, deserves a huge amount of praise and credit. It would NOT have been just his large century, it is his irrepressible, ebullient presence.

Mike Brearley, one of the BEST Test captains ever — and certainly the most cerebral and educated —  used to say: “there are captains that wait for things to happen, and others that make things happen”. Kohli definitely falls into the latter category. Just his presence in the field seems to make things happen.

I am keeping my fingers crossed …
