A few good ones. Wasn’t one of my better days. Wasn’t a nice day. Drizzled right through my 100-minute walk. That also meant that the light was far from optimum — & I rely, a LOT, on natural sunlight. But, still, flowers are flowers. SMILE. Enjoy.

Well, I did promise you, yesterday, a chance of scenery. And here it is. Concord. I did walk, but didn’t see many flowers. Luckily I had to go to ‘Home Depot‘. I knew I would be in luck. Bingo. Enjoy. SMILE.

COVID-19 NH: Hardly Any Outdoor Dining In State Capital, Concord (N.H.)

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.





It was 11:30am, on a Sunny (but a tad mild (@60F)), Tuesday — 2nd day that New Hampshire restaurants were open for outdoor dining.

But, it was ALL empty or NOT set up.

We just saw two folks, a mother & daughter — & I drove up/down North & South Main St. as well as Loudon Road.

‘Red Arrow’ diner had picnic tables outside but was only doing takeout — and they were NOT busy.

I was sure (that my friend) Alex Ray’sCommon Man” would not only be all set-up, BUT BUSY. I was wrong. It was empty. Not set-up for outdoor dining. That makes no sense. They have a huge car park ideal for it.

So …

So?

What gives?

Just time?

This week, from what I see, will be kind in terms of weather. No heavy rain. Doesn’t look good.

Stopped by “Dominick’s“, in Chichester, on the way back. Another joint with a HUGE car park. EMPTY with a sign on the door that said “CLOSED”.

I was amused by her (and yes, it is a ‘her’) message on the sign.

Does SHE realize the coded message that was in THE SONG?

Help from my friends‘. HHHmmmm. SMILE.

I am sure. That would definitely help. SMILE.

2020 Spring Equinox In New Hampshire: Thursday, March 19 at 11:49 pm (Eastern); 03:49 Greenwich.

by Anura Guruge


Happy Spring Equinox 2020.

[It is also called the Vernal Equinox
— that being the Latin for ‘Spring’.]

Click to ENLARGE.


I also share with you “Spring“.

Please enjoy.


Sunrise/Sunset for New Hampshire as of the
2020 Spring Equinox.

Notice that it is NOT EXACTLY 12 hours of sunlight on the Equinox.
That is mainly because we are so good at measuring time.
It has to do with the so called precession of the Earth’s axis.
Our rotation WOBBLES like a spinning top.

From, of course (where else), ‘timeanddate.com‘.

Use link below for original.

Click here for the ‘timeanddate.com’ original.


Yes, we are USED to the Spring Equinox being on March 20 (or 21).

Click to ENLARGE. Also from ‘timeanddate.com’.


This is the earliest it has been in the US in 124 years.

The key here, however, is ‘US’. It is still March 20 in Greenwich — and to us astronomers that is good enough.

Rather convoluted explanation as to why it is this early. If you really want to know, here is a link.

But note, it will again be March 19 — in the US — in 4-years. Yes, that it is also a LEAP YEAR does have a bearing.


As is my custom let me also please share some
catching ‘Allegories of Spring’.

90 MPH, Josh Spaulding, Local Celebrity News Editor, Now Falls Asleep At The Wheel.

by Anura Guruge


He is a local celebrity.

So, he is ABOVE THE LAW.

I am going to get into trouble just for pointing this out.

But, I have KIDS that share the same roads that Mr. Joshua Spaulding drives! Yes, that scares me.

That is ALL I am going to say.

I will let Mr. Joshua Spaulding’s OWN WORDS, IN PRINT, say it all.
