Not much I can add. A solemn day in the end. Day to reflect, a day to give thanks — that we are speaking English rather than German.

Please check ALL the ‘D-Day‘ and ‘Red Poppy‘ posts on this blog. The search box is on the sidebar. In those days I covered much.

Remember. Reflect. Rejoice!

This is a magnificent piece of art in it own right, even if you put aside the subject matter. The portraits of the five Allied Commanders are special; portraits Dick Bobnick’s forte.

You really must check this painting out. The detail is incredible.

Nice, easy to follow guide. Just note that the times are LOCAL. So, 5-6 hours ahead of U.S. Eastern.

Remember ‘D-Day 75‘ is June 6, 2019, not June 5. Huge day. You have to pause and give it some thought. Remember. Reflect. Rejoice!

Wolfeboro, N.H.: ‘Last Night 2018’ Fireworks — THE Pictures.

I have always maintained that there is no such thing as a bad fireworks show. They are all good, by default and definition.

So, these fireworks, at the ungodly early hour of 6:30pm, were good. People liked them. They applauded and honked their horns. So, that alone was good.

It was sure cheerful and a nice prelude to the snowstorm that was on the way. As it transpires the timing kind of worked out. Per the weather forecasts it did start snowing sharp at 8pm.

Not that many people and Wolfeboro was rather quiet. No traffic, whatsoever.

To I, New Year’s Eve is not complete without fireworks. So, I am indeed glad that we went.

Happy New Year.

Wolfeboro, N.H.: No ‘First Night’ For 2019 (i.e., December 31, 2018) BUT There Is A ‘Last Night’.

by Anura Guruge


This was also the case last year and the year before.

No ‘First Night’, with a midnight fireworks, as there used to be — instead a ‘Last Night’ that wraps up by 9pm.

An early end will not be a bad thing in 2018 since we will be getting snow/ice/rain around that time.

Beaujolais Nouveau 2015 — The Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Bottle Label?

Attacks in Paris means we have to TONE DOWN 2015 Beaujolais Nouveau Day.

That is a given.

Yes, we have to observe SOME MOURNING.


This, as I posted, was what was originally purported to be the
Georges Duboeuf label for their Beaujolais Nouveau 2015.

That could still VERY WELL be the case for the U.S.


But, here is a picture of the Georges Duboeuf 2015 Beaujolais Nouveau bottles, 3,200 of them, that arrived at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport on October 31, 2015 — the Japanese, as I have mentioned, BIG on the Nouveau.

I, again, stress that the U.S. 2015 Georges Duboeuf could be different. The Japanese label too much like ones used in prior years.
