Very Communal, Zero-Privacy Men’s Toilet At The ‘Galley Hatch’ Restaurant In Hampton, N.H.

We went their for dinner on New Year’s Day 2020 — which also happened to be our 17th wedding anniversary. It was good. It had been recommended to us and they were right. Great place. Good food. Great atmosphere.

But, this men’s room was a HOWLER. I kid you not. I talked to the manager (a very nice gentleman) about it. It was to accommodate the handicap access laws. It has been like that for 18-years. Cracks me up. You would think an architect could have come up with some other configuration.

Mind boggles. Don’t think too much about it. SMILE.

I Had No Idea That I Traveled This Much In 2019 Until ‘Google Maps’, Unsolicited, Sent Me This Timeline.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.




As somebody who lives, openly, on the Web it really doesn’t bother me that much that Google is now keeping track of my travels.

Most of where I go, of import & interest, gets reported on this blog anyway. So, I kind of don’t care.

This, I know, will bother some — quite rightly. Scary what the police could do with it. Good job I have no secret travels and very few secrets, if any.

In a way I regret that ‘Google Maps‘ has not been around all my long (and semi-illustrious) life. Would be nice to have a log of all the places I have visited given that I used to travel EXTENSIVELY. The other day I TRIED to count the countries I have visited. I got to around 39. I might have been to a few more.

Oh, there are quite a few mistakes in the Timeline.

‘Google Maps’ lists Rockland, Maine, as a NEW place I visited. Oh, dear! First time I have been to Rockland with ‘Google Maps’. That is the problem with this stuff.

Anywho …

Roise, Walmart’s Obnoxious, 6′ Tall, Inventory Checking Robot.

by Anura Guruge

This was my first ever encounter with a robot at Walmart. I was not expecting to see one today. Appears, per my 13-year old daughter who spends way too much time online, that ‘Rosie’ (as she is called and even has a genuine Walmart name tag proclaiming that) is well know. She had never seen it in person, but claims to have seen plenty of videos online.

I heard ‘Rosie’ way before I saw her. She was making a lot of very objectionable and distracting electronic noises. At that stage I had no idea where all that noise was coming from.

Then I encountered her head on — as you can see from the above photos.

She would NOT get out of my way, though I was pushing a fairly heavily loaded shopping cart. We got very close to each other. We had an eye-to-TV confrontation. But, I knew that I was being recorded and possibly even watched in real time. In my old-age I am too savvy to do anything stupid and be accused of damaging Walmart property. So, I made way.

I talk to a young Walmart associate who was stocking shelves nearby. She was happy to give me the low-down.

Rosie, checks to see if the shelves are properly stocked. It automatically squawks — at the associates — if it spots anything t does not like — and I was told that it is prone to make mistakes. Appears she is not popular. I can understand that.

So, you have now been warned.

Oh, this was at Walmart in Rochester, New Hampshire — the nearest to us.

How Was This Picture Taken — How Is It Possible?

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


This appeared in my Facebook timeline yesterday. I, being the photo-taker I am, immediately noticed that something was amiss. Yes, I know who it is, but that is not important.

Wow. Look at the SLOPE on the water — and even worse the citiscape behind him (and I think it is Dubai or Kuwait or somewhere in that area).

He is perfectly straight and the the retaining wall he is standing in front of his perfectly level.

Then how is the background so tilted? We are talking close to 30°.

I really don’t think it is PhotoShopped! If it is we have ‘problems’.

Well, this picture defeated I.

See what YOU can make of it.

Cheers.

People Googling “Nude Beaches New Hampshire” In The Depths Of Winter Just CRACKS Me Up.

11 hits on this post today, which means that quite a few folks were ‘Googling‘ (i.e., searching on) “Nude Beaches New Hampshire” (or similar) TODAY.

It is the depths of winter and the beaches are covered in snow.

Look at the stats above. This post gets hits year around — albeit with more in the Summer months (when it makes sense).

Yes, it is also related to ‘Free The Nipple‘ & ‘topless‘ in New Hampshire and some of the spikes in the stats are when there has been news re. ‘Free the Nipple’ court cases.

I am NOT complaining. It just amuses I. Maybe folks are looking ahead to the Spring.

But, you are more than welcome to look and I do have similar posts for Maine as well as Acadia. SMILE.

Enjoy.

P.S., All beaches in New Hampshire are nude after dark. SMILE. I would know.

P.P.S., There are NO female topless LAWS in New Hampshire — though Laconia tries to enforce a local ordinance.

Snowblowing Can Be Thirsty Work, Despite The Cold — Best To Keep The Refreshments Handy.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


When I saw this I knew I had to take a picture.

Actually, truth be told, I don’t drink beer. Nobody who lives here does, i.e., drink beer. That in essence is why this picture came to be.

This is majorly expired — i.e., 2- to 3-year old — beer. Need to get rid of it. I sometimes use it to wash my hands.

So, why do I have expired beer. Just because we don’t drink beer does not mean I deprive those that visit us from drinking beer. So, I always try and keep beer around. But, it never gets drunk to the level that I maintain the cache. Then, I discover that I have all this OLD, expired beer.

Not sure whether you can get done for DWI, with a snowblower, on your own drive. I am sure that you would be liable if you ventured onto the public road. Well, I have nothing to worry. I don’t touch beer — in liquid form.

‘Walmart’ Selling Some Pretty Racy ‘Garments’ Online.

No. No. Don’t get all excited and jump to the incorrect conclusion that I was browsing ‘Walmart’ for titillation. Nope, NOT I.

My wife stumbled across these and sent me the link along with this message:

Appears that she and my 19-year old daughter were shocked and think it is inappropriate. My wife thought I should do a post — so, I am.

As I pointed out to her I am sure you can find ‘worse’ on Amazon given that I know that they advertise and sell sex toys online. I have never bothered to go looking but I am sure that Amazon, as ever, will have Walmart beat — hands down. [Smile]

My wife is far from a prude. It would be near impossible to be a prude and be married to I. But, this bothered her.

Crotchless panties have always amused and confounded I. Do NOT see the point. Why bother?

Anywho …. I have done what was expected. I have brought it to your attention. Appears that ‘Rue21.com’, that caters to teens/young adults, also has similar — if not ‘more’. But, the link she sent me doesn’t work. Says ‘access denied’.
