There Is Now A Shortage Of TOOTHPASTE In New Hampshire — And We Have Less Teeth/Per Capita Than Most!
IF you have a full set of choppers it is UNLIKELY you are from New Hampshire.
Even I, after my 35-years in NH, can HONESTLY claim that I do not have a full set of teeth. You knew that … right? I have a HUGE gap, right up front.
Bottom line here … we, in New Hampshire, have LESS teeth to brush, compared to others.
So, you would think we wouldn’t be running out of toothpaste.
Toilet paper you can understand. Everybody has one — you know what. But, in New Hampshire, not so when it comes to teeth. So, I am a bit confused and puzzled.
Yes, the aisle, thankfully, was not totally empty. There was some. Enough I think. It was just depleted. I bought an expensive tube just to make sure.
Though I do not have a full set, I have a thing about brushing my teeth. I brush at least twice a day, and always for more than 3-minutes.
Heads Up. Toothpaste shortage ….

Elevation was an issue.
No paths/no trails & GPS was telling me to go UP!
Did NOT want to risk going too far …
The views from the TOP before I got lost.
Kind of crazy. Had a premonition all morning that I was going to get LOST! Maybe I set out to get lost.
Patchy snow cover. So, I couldn’t always follow my tracks.
The map on my Garmin Fenix 6 Pro is too small and NO bloody good with my eyesight. Yes, my fault.
I had GPS and Google MAPS on my phone (Google Pixel 4) and it showed me where I was heading. But, the terrain was not helpful and I felt I was going the wrong way. It was slippery and heavily wooded. I did not want to hurt myself. That would be have complicated matters. So, I called ‘911’.
They were very nice and I offered to pay. They didn’t come into the woods to get me out. SMILE. They also did not have a GPS that showed them where I was at any given time.
They basically talked me out. Had the two dogs with I. I had to make Braxton bark. They would listen to his bark when we were in range. That is how we walked out — way on the other side of where I had gone in. How did I get Braxton to bark. I would have to tie him to a tree and walk away. He would bark. Not ideal, but that was the only way. I never went far, and he could see me. So, he wasn’t really scared. He saved the day. The Golden doesn’t bark if I am around! She is just happy.
So, that was quite the adventure. ‘They’ were very nice. I knew a couple of them. Need to get a better Compass APP for my phone.

But, this last Monday I had a chance to walk around — a near deserted Keene — while middle daughter was emptying her dorm room.
There were more, but these were ALL that I had a chance to ‘snap’ before the phone rang summoning me back.
Some, as you can see, are painted on brick. Others, such as the ‘chess players’ are on paper, pasted to the wall.

I can deal with this. It just requires perseverance — a commodity that is not in short supply when it comes to I.
Funny thing. This ethereal roadblock kind of follows I. Always ahead of I today. But, it did not deter I. I knew there would be light.
Don’t you? SMILE.
There will always be light — in the end.
The latest roadblock in my life.
Just as this was melting away.
I am not complaining. Honest. So, the latest roadblock was yesterday. But, it wasn’t too major. Not enough to deter my progress. I, of course, prevailed.
The irony was that this was the day after I was rejoicing that my prior roadblock was melting away.
But, it is OK. I will manage. Thanks. SMILE.
Happy Spring Equinox 2020.
[It is also called the Vernal Equinox
— that being the Latin for ‘Spring’.]

I also share with you “Spring“.
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.

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