This was truly a High Dynamic Range (HDR)
performance — musically & visually.

Non-stop celebration of HOPE & JOY.

What a delight.

And it was FREE!

Thank YOU (again) to the amazing “William H. Gile” Trust
that put on these FREE concerts in Concord, NH.
The “Summer of Love Concert” in June 2018
was brilliant — this was equally good.

THANK YOU!


This time I knew it was going to be good. I am a BIG “Ladysmith Black Mambazo” fan (and I have seen them live at least twice) and I kind of knew, intuitively, that this Choir would be in that mould. They were and they did NOT disappoint.

The ‘jubilation‘ mentioned on their Website (above) is a real good description. I also saw, in the concert program, that the U.K. ‘The Scotsman’ had called their performance: ‘riot of exuberance‘. Yes, that is a great description too.

High energy & ultra dynamic. Hence, why HDR — High Dynamic Range — came to my mind as I watched them, entranced and enthralled.

This concert was a part of their tribute to the GREAT MAN, Nelson Mandela’s 100th anniversary year.

As such right through the concert they set out to pay tribute to:

And in each instance they succeeded brilliantly.

An inspired, celebratory performance that was uplifting & motivational but at the same time a reminder of where we have all been (in terms of oppression) and where we might still head! It made you think. It made you realize that people will prevail. We need great leaders like Nelson Mandela.

Their CDs are available at Amazon. They will make great Christmas presents.

It was a BLAST. It was BRILLIANT.

It was FREE.

This was an unexpected bonus. I had NOT heard of this concert until quite recently when I got a flyer, in the mail, from the “Capitol Center For The Arts” (since I am a patron). I thought it would be too late to get tickets, but I managed to get 4 though they were not the great seats I have managed to get to “William H. Gile” concerts in the past. I had never heard of this ‘concert’, so was not sure what to expect.

So, so GLAD we went. It exceeded all expectations. Kind of a hybrid ‘tribute band‘ cum ‘legends in concert‘ mix that just covered songs from 3-years, viz. 1967 to 1969 — the “Woodstock Generation“. They really went to town. Talk about over the top energy. Very, very well done. This was my music.

I would readily go and see them again; even pay to see them. But, noticed on their Website that they don’t have that many gigs. They could be expensive to hire. A LARGE cast. Typically 15 – 16 performers on the stage. I heard the cast was close to 20.

It was a good night. The theater was fairly well packed. Some empty seats. That surprised I. Folks missed a great event.

Thank YOU, “William H. Gile” Trust. Much appreciated.

Deanna saw this and took this picture in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, a few weeks ago. She worked out what it says, given that she had some context to go by.

ISED8M2 = I SEDATE Them Too.

He is talking about his patients!

There is something disquieting here. It would be one thing if this person talked about skills or speciality, e.g., ISTPAIN. But this seems to come close treading all over the hippocratic oath — though to be fair, as it clearly says, this is NOT a doctor. You don’t have to be a doctor to be a pain specialist in New Hampshire. A nurse can prescribe narcotics and even do some spinal surgery! Amazing.

I looked up the dictionary definition of sedation. It is: the calming of mental excitement or abatement of physiological function, especially by the administration of a drug”. Well this person definitely does that. No question about that. But is it something that you should brag about?

Think about it.

I was in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire — the Oldest Summer Resort in the U.S. — twice this last Saturday, October 25, 2014. Teischan had two ballet classes. During the first visit in the morning I walked 40 minutes up Main Street, all the way past the big cemetery and then ran down, in a hurry, because I thought I was going to be late. That gave me my hour’s worth of exercise for the day. On the second visit, when her class was just for 30 minutes I perambulated around the dock area with my Canon T3i. I knew that if I was lucky I might be able to get another picture posted on the N.H. State official Tourist Site, VisitNH.gov. Well I succeeded — my 6th picture that they have used since the end of September. So it was worth it. Here are some of the pictures. ENJOY. Wolfeboro is such a delightful town to walk around. Plan to do an hours walk, in the dark, on Thursday night.

No Bidders For Possibly Land-Mined Tax-Evasion Fortress In Plainfield, New Hampshire.

I am surprised, but I think there is two factors at play — and the possible land mines per se isn’t one of them.

I think there are factions who want to show solidarity with the Browns given that paying taxes is not a popular pastime in New Hampshire. The other is the minimum $250,000 price tag. I think that is too high. IF I had any money I would make an offer to buy this place. Actually if anybody who has a say in this reads this they should contact me. I will BUY IT — for a price. The land mines worry me NOT. I know that the technology is available to have them cleared.

Also interesting that her dental office in prime Lebanon did not sell. Price again had to have been a factor.

That nobody sat in the 16 chairs provided for the potential bidders, to me, tells its own story. The good folks of New Hampshire do not want to be seen involved in this tax-evasion case. Good for them.

I gather they have played to great acclaim at Cate Park before. I don’t think I have seen them. I am still kind of undecided whether I am really a major ‘Bluegrass’ fan. I can listen to it BUT it doesn’t do as much for me as other genres. Not sure what our plans are for Saturday evening. I realize, to my horror, that we have ONLY been to one concert at Cate Park this Summer and that was to see “Annie & The Orphans“. Much of this, if not all, has to do with conflicts with ‘Great Waters‘ concert — and yes, ‘Huggins Fair‘. I had hoped to walk over to Cate Park during ‘THE Fair’ but that never happened and I am kind of curious that no notes drifted across from the Park. I have heard Cate Park concerts while doing ‘Huggins’.

Anywho … just a heads up. Seems like a nice band. Enjoy.
