It is my favorite place in Concord for a semi-quick meal. If we are truly in a hurry we do Fast Food. If we have more time, I start with Uno.
That was the case on Tuesday, September 11, 2018. We had 40-minutes and we headed to Uno’s. We had been there, for lunch, a few weeks ago also. I had stumbled upon the ‘This, That & The Other Thing Sampler‘ on that visit. This time I went straight to it and ordered exactly what I had ordered the last time, viz., meatballs, chicken bites & the Buffalo chicken quesadilla. For I it is the Goldilocks lunch. Just right. Enough food with a touch of carbs in the quesadilla not to mention the “Windy City Hurricane” that I had. It was good. I can’t say no to anything that has Southern Comfort and pineapple juice.
So, check it out. I don’t think you will be disappointed.
It is official as of around 1pm (Eastern). Atlantic Broadband, despite charging me for it, CANNOT deliver 1 Gig to their modem, at my house! The best that seems to come out of the modem, when my PC is directly attached to it, is around 550Mbps — but on average 450Mbps.
Atlantic Broadband has admitted that that was NOT right. They are sending another technician, on Friday, between 2 – 5pm, to see if they can rectify it.
We spent 40-minutes. He, ‘Dave’, was very nice. He tried all sorts. But, could NOT get a reading that even got to 600Mbps.
Appears I am the FIRST to get ‘1 Gig’ in Alton [NH]. Possible that the cable might not be up to par.
I will, of course, keep you posted.
P.S., For the second time in a week I have had success getting Tech. problems resolved via Twitter.

This is a very BIG DEAL. “The Globals” is the World Cup of high school robotics. They are competing with teams from all over the WORLD. So, it was huge that this team from New Hampshire managed to make it. Appears that they are highly seeded and the coaches are ‘quietly confident’.
You can watch them here:
‘Prospect Mountain High School’ (Alton, NH) Robotics Team Is Going To ‘The Globals’ And Needs Your Support.
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.

This was the second ‘Battle of the Bay’ we have thus attended — we also having gone to last year’s. It was fun.
Since the ‘Portland Pie Co.‘ was just a block away we decided to go there. We had been there, once before, a couple of years ago, with all four kids and it had been ‘OK’.
There was a 20-minute wait, though all the tables were not taken. I think it had to do with staffing.
It is nice enough inside and the house red wine is pretty damn good.
I ordered the ‘Fryeburg Fair Cheeseburger‘ without any bread and opted to UPGRADE with a fruit salad.
The two-patty cheeseburger sans a bun was pathetic. Emaciated and anemic. The burger patties at McDonald’s are twice as thick and ten times more flavorful. NOT IMPRESSED. It was insipid and unappetizing.
The fruit salad was a total bloody JOKE. 9 slices of apple, one grape and a sliver of peach. That was it. 98% apple. I couldn’t believe it.
Deanna had the ‘Steak and Bleu Salad‘ and was not enthused by the salad part!
Devanee had a pizza and that was fine.
Teischan had the ‘Nacho Grande‘ appetizer with the $3.00 beef burger upgrade. A lot of Nachos but, at best, there was probably half of a burger of meat.

This, of course, is a very worthy and worthwhile initiative — one that I feel very strongly about.
It is spearheaded by Jessica Livingston, of ‘JLiv Inspirations‘ and the head of the ‘Concord Multicultural Festival‘ committee, a remarkably committed and driven spirit extremely proactive in making New Hampshire a welcoming home for ‘New Americans‘.
So, please, get behind this and spread the word. Thanks.
