My Latest ‘Wheels’ — Maybe The Spiffiest Of Them All.

by Anura Guruge

My very first time. Always wanted to try one out. Never had the guts.

Yesterday I had no choice. Wow. Easy to drive and very maneuverable. You can turn it on a dime.

Had bad luck though. No, NO, contrary to Teischan’s fears I did NOT run anyone over and I did not play bumper cars with any carts though I pretended like I was going to.

Had the battery on TWO — yes two — die on I! That wasn’t funny.

Hoping that this is not going to become a habit. I like to be mobile on my own two feet.

Oh, this was at ‘Market BasketRochester, NH.

Flowers Galore For 2019 Valentine’s Day — At Concord ‘Market Basket’.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE and ENJOY.


YOU know I can’t resist taking pictures of flowers — particularly so during the height of winter in New Hampshire when the temperature is in the 20s FAHRENHEIT, we have a few inches of snow on the ground and a foot or more of fresh snow on the way.

These were at ‘Market Basket‘ in Concord, New Hampshire. To be honest, I didn’t take pictures of all the flowers. It was quite busy and I didn’t want to get in the way of love-struck folk trying to buy flowers.

But, please ENJOY. Happy Valentine’s Day 2019.

P.S., I did buy two bunches of daffodils — that being the Welsh in I.

Yes, of course, I miss taking pictures of flowers. No flowers outside anymore. Just snow, ice and grey. But, plenty of pretty flowers inside.

I had a few minutes to spare today while shopping at ‘Market Basket‘ in Rochester, New Hampshire. So, I couldn’t resist.

Enjoy.

The New “Mooyah” In Rochester, NH, For A Double Burger For Lunch.

Mooyah” Burgers ¤ Fries ¤ Shakes opened at the Rochester, New HampshireMarket Basket‘/’Petco‘ shopping area — right next to ‘110 Grill‘ — quite recently.

Since I am partial to burgers, sans the bun, I was eager to try it out.

Got the chance on Tuesday when we went to ‘Market Basket‘. I walked across around 2pm.

Pretty fancy. Wasn’t crowded. LOT of staff — all exceptionally cheerful & friendly.

A tad pricey. More diner-like pricing rather than Wendy’s or Burger King. But, you can make your own burger. I liked that.

It was good. I didn’t have any fries or a shake. NO HOT DOGS.

Gather it is a chain/franchise from Texas.

It is NOT Shake Shack.

I might go again. Might not. Not sure. They didn’t totally ‘wow’ me over, but I am willing to give them a few tries. Must take Teischan. That would be the acid test; whether she gives the burgers a thumbs up. She is a burger connoisseur.

I very rarely shop at Shaw’s tending to prefer ‘Market Basket‘ and ‘Hannaford‘ — and I am pretty sure I had never been to this Shaw’s in Concord. I was blown away by the amount of flowers they had and the variety. Very upscale. We don’t see such in Alton and Rochester. I had left my camera in the Quest and had to go back and get it to take these pictures. I hope you like them.

‘110 Grill’, Rochester, New Hampshire — Impressive Indeed; A Welcome Addition To The Region.

We had lunch there on Sunday, May 21, 2017, and I was pleasantly impressed. A very good experience overall. We will definitely be going back and I already signed up for the loyalty program (and am 60% towards my first $10 discount).

Teischan wanted to go to Walmart to get some more craft supplies and since it was such a beautiful day, and we hadn’t done much yesterday, I suggested that we might as well do lunch on the way.

We had seen this ‘grill’ a number of times given that we go to that ‘Walmart Mall‘ or drive past it at least 5 -6 times a month. We were under impression that it had just opened quite recently — like in May. We were wrong. They have been open since December. Wow. I wish I knew. I would have gone in much sooner. Our loss.

It was impressive in every way. Great ambience. Very modern, very pleasing to the eye, spacious and airy. We sat outside on the patio. That was first class and you could not have had a better day.

The service was impeccable! They really try hard.

The menu was good and catered to MY taste. I ordered the ‘Asian Calamari’ and the ‘Tempura Shrimp’. Now we are Calamari connoisseurs and will invariably order it if it is on the menu. This calamari was one of the BEST. It was good. On par, if not better, than the one I have at the ‘Cheesecake Factory‘ in Cambridge, MA when I visit the BostonMuseum of Science‘. The shrimp was also good and put to shame the ones I had recently at ‘Ruby Tuesday‘. We both had the ‘Kale Brussels Salad’ and that was good too.

I had a ‘Jameson Julep‘ given that it was Summer and I was outside. It was ‘OK’ but not to the standard of the ‘Mint Mojitos‘ served at ‘Uno

Actually this place, with all the flowers outside, reminded me, greatly, of the ‘Uno‘ in Concord, NH. That is not a bad thing. I love that Uno.

Initially I thought the prices were a tad rich for Rochester, but looking at the menu again I realize that they are not bad.

They even had live entertainment — starting at 3pm. It was ‘Johnnie James‘ of ‘Sweetrock‘ and he was good. My only gripe, and I made my feelings heard, was that you could not hear him from the patio! They — and it is a franchise — have spent a pretty penny on this place and they have piped music in the patio. But they don’t have a means to relay the live information, from inside, to the patio. So, I had to go inside to listen to Johnnie. That did not amuse me.

I recommend this place — highly. I will let you know when I visit again.
