We Still Have Great Fall Foliage In Central New Hampshire — October 18, 2020.

Not unusual. It is still, kind of, mid-October. It has, however, been a LONG foliage season — NOT that I am complaining. I am amazed by the amount of color. To begin with there was a noticeable shortage of yellow. It was all red. Now we have a surfeit. Beautiful to walk through. I am now heading north (actually north east) to Maine. Not sure what I will find there. But, I will, of course, share with you when I get back.

Bulova’s Latest ‘Precisionist Collection’ Watches Have A Rugged Charm To Them.

There might have been a time that I might just have considered wearing one of these — but not anymore. Appears that I am destined for ever onwards to only wear high-end activity/sleep tracking smart watches with GPS/Glonass, Heart Rate Monitors and gyroscopes. But, I don’t mind looking. As I have mentioned before Bulova sends me e-mails and I check out what they have to offer.

The ‘red’ version does have certain je ne sais quoi. Does look kind of cool. They all, however, look heavy

It seemed churlish not to share these pictures. I do enjoy taking pictures of decaying flowers! When growing up a Buddhist, in Ceylon, we were taught to meditate focusing on the decaying of flowers!

Ditto of yesterday to speak. Again I took all these pictures, close to home, while walking the dogs around 5:15pm, this evening. The difference was that I was on my own and when I got to Prospect Mountain Road, I turned the other way. None, other than the reflection in the puddle, are from our yard!

Took all these pictures, close to home, when Teischan and I walked the dogs around 5:15pm, this evening. I needed her help because I knew I would be taking a few pictures. A couple are from our yard — in passing. The others are from our road and on Prospect Mountain Road. Maybe tomorrow I can again venture further afield. All UNTOUCHED. Straight out of the camera.

Gloriously Red Fall Foliage 2017 In New Hampshire — October 4.

These, alas and alack, are not from our yard. I had to drive about 3 miles to capture these. They were all in one ‘wet area’ grove. I hadn’t been past there in a year BUT had a hunch. It paid out. The sun was setting and hitting the foliage nearly horizontally. Plus, I used the ‘High Dynamic Range’ setting on my Sony a7 II to get the maximum color saturation. Mainly reds. Not that much orange — at least not yet. Enjoy.

This has been a good year for ‘our yard‘ — both in terms of flowers and fall foliage. We have had a great profusion of varied and colorful flowers since early June. And that we still have a ton of delightful flowers, in mid-September is wonderful — especially given that we also have lots of red/orange New Hampshire Fall Foliage to complement the flowers.

Post Trump, Democrats Flip A State Seat From The Republicans In Blood Red Wolfeboro, NH — The First!

by Anura Guruge

from WMUR.

Symbolic, encouraging and hopefully, with a TON of luck, a harbinger of things to come.

What is most significant is that is BLOOD RED Wolfeboro — where Mittens Romney has one of his many mansions (and a few of his many wives).

Trump won Wolfeboro by a 7% margin. It is one the REDDEST towns in New Hampshire.

This win make NO difference at the NH House. The Democrats lost a seat in Hillsborough County and the GOP margin in NH is HUGE.

But, a small victory for us.

Alton’s Disgrace — Our NEGLECTED Historic Railway Semaphore.

Alton Bay, New Hampshire.

I have been trying for 5-years to get the town, i.e., the Town of Alton, to take care of these historic railway semaphores.

They are in theory PROTECTED by some State statute but nobody enforces it.

The ‘Lady’ responsible for taking care of these just does NOT care. She has other, more amusing distractions.

I talked to an Alton ‘Parks & Rec’ employee, who I know, who happened to be there about it. He agreed it was a SHAME.

They should be painted and painted CORRECTLY — at least one red arm. The lens should be replaced.

This in unbecoming of Alton.

Irish Green from Hammacher Schlemmer for $6,000! Click to access their Webpage.


redbooth

The more famous British red available from multiple sources for 1/2 the price! Click for this listing. Google for many more, including those on eBay.


My interest, as ever, was piqued when I got my usual e-mail ‘alert’ from (dear) Hammacher Schlemmer.

$6,000 seemed a bit stiff. I thought they sold the red ones too. Couldn’t find it on their online catalogue. But easy enough to find them at other places.

Of course I would much rather have a red.

Interesting. The green is cute.
