“North American Power” 9.29cent/kWh Rate For 2-Years, In New Hampshire.

The 8.59¢/kWh rate I was lucky enough to get in October 2016, i.e., a year ago, ALAS, came to an end.

9.29¢/kWh was the best that I could get, as of October 2017 — BUT I managed to get it for 2 years, i.e., until October 2019.

I think I am cool with that. That is exactly the rate I signed-up for in 2015. So, I am not a stranger to it. Obviously better than any of the other rates offered by North American Power. So that is good.

I did some research. I am happy with that rate (I think). {Smile}

This is crazy. We have put up with this for 10-years!

It isn’t as if we have a really, really strange name. We are just talking “Gurugé“.

“é” — as used in French and Spanish.

Last time I looked we do have folks with French and Spanish names in the U.S.

This is a bloody travesty.

Got the LATEST testing results, with the two ‘question marks’ today. I had enough.

I contacted the Principal and Assistant Principal — who happens to be on French descent, with a name LaFreniere.

Wolfeboro Adult Education — Another Proposed Spring 2018 Class, “Laziness Should Know No Bounds”.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


As with “Quick & Easy Meditation“, I, in my old age, am going about sharing some of my innermost secrets and ‘skills’ with you. Nobody better qualified to teach a class on ‘Being MORE Lazy’ than I. If the truth be known my middle name, all my life, should have been ‘lazy’ — Anura ‘lazy’ Guruge.

My adoptive father, always, maintained, with nary an exception, that I was lazy. He was, of course, as always, right. I have been lazy all my life. I think it is genetic (my REAL father supposed to have been a GAMBLER) though I have spent a lot of time and effort improving on my laziness so I can be even more lazy.

So, now I will share my secrets on how YOU TOO can be more lazy. Laziness knows NO bounds.

Wolfeboro Adult Education — Proposed Spring 2018 Class, “Leveraging Incompetence”.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


Appears that there is a demand for this — this being the Wolfeboro area. Appears incompetence big around there. I am always game. Maybe we will get the minimum requisite quorum of 2 for the class.

Per the requirements of Wolfeboro Adult Education any and all typos, apparent or not, may or may not be intentional. As always, as is invariably the case with Wolfeboro Adult Education, everything is meant to be a game.

Our Mail In Alton, N.H., Was Delivered At 8:05 PM By The USPS Mailman!

by Anura Guruge



I am not complaining. I feel BAD for our mailman — who I consider a friend. He still had about 3-hours of delivery ahead of him! That meant he wouldn’t get home till close to midnight. That is crazy.

Yes, yes, yes. I know him. I know him well. Yes, he doesn’t normally finish his round till 7 or 8pm, but even for him this was LATE.

Appears that another Alton delivery person walked-out at 1pm. ‘Quit’ is what I was told.

We have had a lot of turnover.

I was expecting some copies of my latest meditation book, from Amazon, in the mail. Amazon said it was out for delivery. We had gone out for dinner and didn’t get back till 8pm. I checked the mailbox. No mail. So, I assumed my books had been delayed till the next day. Then I was out, with the dogs when I saw the headlights of the Jeep approaching. I knew immediately who it was. We talked. I told him to be ‘careful’. It is a tricky route — at night.

I hope they fix whatever the issues are at the Post Office. Nice crew — the last time I visited.

Michael Bourgeois, co-owner with Julie Gnerre — and Julie’s husband.


It was Devanee’s 17th birthday and Giuseppe’s, which she has known for 15-years of her life, is her perennial favorite. So, yet again, that is where we went.

As always it was a delightful experience. Amazing, palpable congeniality. That Michael was playing was an unexpected bonus.

Had our usual: calamari x 2, spinach rolls x 2, large pizza for the girls, beef minestrone soup for I and then dessert for the girls. There were no complaints. It was good.

Thanks Julie.


The incomparable Julie, 2017 JTG.
