Since we discovered this local ‘gem‘, on the Internet, we try to visit at least a few times a year.
But yesterday, a Saturday, around 4:30pm, was QUIET. Not a peep. There were two other cars in the ‘car park’ but we saw nobody, we heard no sounds other than that of nature. It was at its best. There was even some foliage.
I was looking through my previous “Knight’s Pond” post when I was struck by these similarities. Déjà vu, all over again.

I swung by Hannaford in Alton to pick up some items this afternoon and came across a lady doing a taste demo for this yogurt — or yoghurt, as they call it. She made a point of telling me to try the yogurt with HEAT — i.e., yogurt with chilli peppers. Well I like pepper and as I have talked about before, I eat a yogurt each and every day and have been doing so for nearly 20 years.
I tried the “Blackberry/Serrano” and loved it. She gave me a 55 cent coupon and I bought a container. It is a double size container — i.e., twice as much as your normal yogurt container.
When I came home I read the label. I was SHOCKED. The fat and carbs are WAY ABOVE what I would normally indulge in. A very rich yogurt. But it sure tasted good. Yum. Yum. Would love to eat some everyday with the chilli but I couldn’t handle all that extra fat and carbs given that I, yet again, need to lose some weight!
I am going to try adding some chilli to my normal Greek yogurt. I will tell you if I crack the recipe.

It Was Cool To Meet ‘Hunter Taylor’, Of Alton, The BIG Winner Of The Belknap County Commissioner Primary.

I had a 3pm in Gilford on NH September Primary Day, Sept. 13, 2016, to get my teeth cleaned. On the way home I decided to swing by the Gilford Polling Station to ‘press-the-flesh’ with my Democrat friends, Lisa DiMartino and Nancy Frost in particular. I missed Lisa since she had left for Meredith. But Nancy was still there as was Johan Andersen — both, like Lisa, running for NH House. Standing next to them, wearing a “Hunter Taylor” golf-shirt was this rather neat lady who promptly engaged me in a lively conversation and did a wonderful, much endearing impression of our (of late) ex-neighbor the wavering part-time ex-politician. I liked her — much. She was cool. She turned out to be “Ruth Larson” — Hunter Taylor’s wife (and as she told me, one of his former students). She and I had a lot to talk about, in particular Hunter Taylor’s opponent’s very shady financial dealings.
As we were chatting Hunter Taylor, who I had not previously met, sauntered over. To my amazement he knew who I was! I was impressed. He is a real cool dude. Nice guy. As some of you know I do not let my strong Democratic leanings get in the way of liking people irrespective of their political leanings. Plus on some social issues I (still retaining my old reputation for being “to the right of Thatcher“) am very much with the Conservatives — even more of a stickler than the current Pope. Hunter Taylor, by any measure, is a much better candidate to continue as Commissioner than his opponent. No wonder he went to beat him 2,035 to 591 votes; 500 to 153 in Alton, where both contestants reside. I am glad that Hunter Taylor won. I went searching the Web to find the results because WMUR was not forthcoming.
I am glad I stopped at the Polling Station.
