You might still be in luck with some of the other libraries.

Be careful with what you find in local stores. They might not be ‘good‘ (i.e., strong/dark) enough.

Might be getting too late for ordering online. But, you could try.

All the best. The skies over New Hampshire should be CLEAR for Monday’s PARTIAL solar eclipse over New Hampshire.

Woods Hole Aquarium — FREE & Well Worth It!

It is FREE (i.e., U.S. taxpayer funded), it is intimate and it is impressive. We (i.e., Teischan & I) enjoyed thoroughly — and Teischan is a connoisseur of aquariums.

Exactly 15-days earlier we had visited the ‘Maine State Aquarium’ in Boothbay Harbor. That too was a small aquarium — albeit with a nominal admission fee (e.g., $7 for adults). Woods Hole was better with a more extensive array of tanks and an interesting ‘backstage’ area. They are both set by the ocean, with the Boothbay facility better situated on a much larger area. That said, the Woods Hole aquarium is right in the middle of the town just to the side of one of the main parks.

An Heads Up: The seal display is NOT in service right now. Appears the last seal died in July. Appears that they want to refurbish the outside seal tank before they even think about getting any new seals.

This aquarium is part of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) — the National Marine Fisheries Service to be precise. They claim that it, established in Woods Hole in 1885, is the oldest aquarium in the U.S. It is NOT Mystic nor Boston but it is well worth a visit and the price is just right. {SMILE}

Happened to find it serendipitously around 11:20pm on Thursday, July 21, when I, as I often did, checked the electronic program guide to see what interesting stuff was coming up on the ‘Smithsonian Channel’. I DVR a fair amount from the Smithsonian and watch it if there is no decent cricket to watch.

Get E-Mail Notifications, From The USPS, Of The Mail That Is To Be Delivered To You That Day!

by Anura Guruge

This is June, so this is NOT an April Fool’s gag. Honest.

A real service from our USPS — yes, the ‘Post Office‘ — for free and for gratis.

It is called ‘Informed Delivery‘. Check it out.

They didn’t have to really do much to offer this service. They already scan all the mail as a part of their first-cut, automated sorting system. They use state-of-the-art OCR (optical character recognition) to pick-out the zip-code. So, extending that to read the rest of the address was not too difficult.

It could be a GREAT help. For a start you can see IF the check is indeed in the mail — way ahead of the mail being delivered.

I like it — THOUGH alas it is not available in my zip though it is SUPPOSED to be! As ever my loss and the price I pay for living in the stick.

But, check it out. Sign-up for it. It will be handy.

Looks interesting.

This is the ‘First in the NationDixville Notch which always gets its 15-minutes of glory whenever we have a State Primary or a National Election.

It is UP THERE, way up there. I have never been that far north within New Hampshire! They might still have snow up there.

First Annual. So, it is the first. As such I can’t say I have ever been to it.

Thinking about it. Just wanted to make sure you knew about it.
