Since we discovered this local ‘gem‘, on the Internet, we try to visit at least a few times a year.

We had last visited, in 2016, 6 months ago and it had NOT been very pleasant since there was non-stop sounds of gunfire from the target range next door!

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.

“Knight’s Pond”, Alton, N.H. — 6 Months Apart In 2016.

by Anura Guruge


Knight’s Pond” in Alton is one of our favored local jaunts, when the mood takes us. We were there yesterday and I posted these foliage pictures.

I was looking through my previous “Knight’s Pond” post when I was struck by these similarities. Déjà vu, all over again.

February 29 & September 24, 2016.

Pictures on left (Sept.) with Nikon P900 those on right (Feb.) with Panasonic Lumix LX100.

“Noosa” — A Fine Yogurt With Pepper-Spiced Heat, BUT Alas Too ‘Rich’ For Me.

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.

Hunter Taylor with his wife, Ruth Larson.


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.

TP-Link Archer C9, Inexplicably, Reverts To Factory Settings During 7.5 Hour Power Outage!

by Anura Guruge


tp-link


Strangest thing ever. We lost power today, i.e., September 11, 2016, for 7.5 hours because our electricity supplier ‘Eversource‘ (a.k.a. ‘Eversore‘) enjoys kicking its customers in the teeth, if not lower down.

But, after power was restored I couldn’t get my main Wi-Fi network to work.

The ethernet connected PCs, like this one, worked fine. But no Wi-Fi. Yes, I also have two very SEPARATE Wi-Fi networks in the house (actually 4) — with two different routers and two different ISPs, viz. MetroCast (the main network) and TDS (the backup network). We could use the TDS backup network but not the FASTER MetroCast Wi-Fi.

Went to logon to the TP-Link Archer C9 that runs the main Wi-Fi network.

It would NOT accept my logon. That got me worried.

Re-cycled power twice. Nothing. The default logon, admin/admin, worked.

Logged in.

EVERYTHING WIPED CLEAN.

No Wi-Fi networks. Back to factory settings. SCARY.

Yes, only took me a few minutes to reconfigure since I have it all documented.

SCARY.

No explanation!

Just a heads up.
