Happy Spring Equinox 2018.

[It is also called the Vernal Equinox
— that being the Latin for ‘Spring’.]

I also share with you Donovan’s haunting
“Lullaby of Spring”

Please enjoy.

Sunrise/Sunset for New Hampshire as of the
2018 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.

Teischan & I Enjoying ALL The Snow We Got With March 2018 Winter Storm “Skylar”.

This is the most snow we have had with one storm in a LOG TIME! Definitely over 2 feet (24 inches).

But, we prevailed. Devanee did a fair amount of shovelling to get HER car out. This morning was my 4th go around. Teischan helps. Her main goal is to keep her trampoline clear and in this storm she had to shovel the trampoline three times!

But, we took some time off.

March 2018 Winter Storm “Skylar” Dumped Over 2′ (Yes, 2 Feet) Of Snow!

Third snow storm, third Nor’Easter at that (in that the wind/snow is coming from the NE), in as many weeks. This, by far, the most spectacular and SEVERE.

Quinn” last week gave us 9″. That was pretty easy to deal with.

Skylar” started off deceptively — though we had all heard the forecasts and kind of knew what to expect.

At 10:30am when I went out to shovel for the first time there wasn’t that much snow. Less than 4″.

Then it started coming down heavy.

We were out twice after that and have only made a DENT!

Luckily it is light, fluffy snow. BUT, LOTS of it.

Going to be spending a lot of time tomorrow clearing some of it. This one is going to take a few days to clear.

I will keep you posted. More pictures tomorrow.

Click to ENLARGE and read here. The image below has link to “Go Fund Me” page. Thanks.

So, they are going to ‘The Globals‘ in Detroit, Michigan, in April 2018. They were a ‘wild card’ favorite.

Going to ‘The Globals‘ is an expensive proposition and they need to raise a fair amount of money. So, if you can help, that would be much appreciated.

Go visit the page and look around. The video is fun.

Why Are Teachers In New Hampshire Immune From Random Drug Testing?

by Anura Guruge

Click to access original.

Well, to be fair, it is NOT just New Hampshire. Most tests do NOT permit drug testing of teachers.

That is crazy.

Teachers (and administrators) are human and have their foibles — and I talk as one whose adoptive mother as well as two aunties were teachers.

There are times, especially of late, when I can ONLY reconcile what I see and hear about teachers in New Hampshire by thinking that they must be doing drugs!

Be honest. Has that thought ever crossed YOUR mind.

Do you honestly think that ALL of our teachers and administrators are saints?

Why the double-standards?

We go after kids, QUITE RIGHTLY, for drugs. Why don’t we set an example by also checking the teachers and administrators?

I HOPE I am wrong. But, my druthers is that random drug testing of teachers, in New Hampshire, could tell us much.
