This, as you can clearly see from the top image, was in the Thursday, September 6, 2018, issue of ‘The Baysider‘.

Given that our Braxton is a beagle-on-steroids I kind of felt a kinship. I know that beagles can roam and that we have been lucky with Braxton — though much of that has to do with me tiring him out with regular 3.4+ mile runs.

So, I was THINKING about going and looking for this lost beagle. I was going to go into the woods.

So, I wanted to see how long it had been missing. What I saw — which you can too — blew me AWAY.

May 10, 2005.


If somebody stole it, it would not be alive as yet. That was 13-years ago and that looks like a 2-year old Beagle. So, it would be 15-years old. Lifespan of a Beagle is 12 – 15 years. So, this is BIT late to be offering a reward for a Beagle that went missing 13-years ago!

Typo? But, BOTH May & the year.

This is sick …

If it is a TYPO, not unknown in the ‘The Baysider’, ‘they’ have surpassed themselves.

But, I have a hunch that this is a joke. Why?

Because we also have the “or write”! This is 2018 (not 2005). They provide an e-mail & a phone number and then say … WRITE … but give no last name.

Strange and maybe very sick.

Braxton, our Harrier.

‘Bella Winni Salon’, By Jessica Rothwell, The Premier Hair Salon In The Alton [NH] Area.

by Anura Guruge

I have known Jessica as of last year; she was one of my first ‘students’ at Wolfeboro Adult Education. She was already well into visualizing this salon at the time. 

She has done an AMAZING job. It is blinking beautiful. I don’t think I have ever seen a more visually congenial hair salon in my life (and I have bummed around quite a few cities in the world). I am sure there is nothing like it around here. Jessica is also extremely good at what she does, very dedicated and conscientious.

She asked me to do this Website for her because she, as she should be, is swamped. The salon is already doing very well though it only opened last month.

Read it about it in ‘The Baysider‘.

TDS Telecom 1 Gig Internet ‘TDS TV’ Coming In 2016 To Alton, New Hampshire.

Our local rag claims that TDS told the august Alton Selectmen, at their year end meeting, that ‘TDS TV’ (with optional 1 Gig Internet access) will be available in large swatches of Alton in 2016. It was then commented that TDS, with their TV option (and remember that you have, for the last few years, been able to get DISH (at a small discount) via TDS), will be competing with MetroCast. Competition is always good. That makes me happy.

TDS has been promising me 1 Gig Internet for over a year. First they told me that I will have it in October 2015. Then it was pushed to Spring of 2016. And that is basically what they are claiming now.

If you check out the Alton map above you will see that it is ALREADY lying! The areas marked in yellow as ‘2015’ with the BIG ‘A’ & ‘B’ pins on them. Click the pins. It will say ‘January 2016’. Well in my book ‘January 2016’ is NOT 2015 — but then again TDS has never believed in adhering to the facts or the rules of physics.

I have been a TDS customer for over 7 years — originally starting with Union Tel. I am not very happy with them. I have had TONS of problems with the 15Mpbs Internet connection I get from them. Luckily it is no longer my PRIMARY means of Internet. I get the 75Mbps service from MetroCast — and that, 99% of the time, has been rock solid.

This ‘TDS TV’ will force MetroCast to offer at least 100Mbps in this area. I will sign-up for that BEFORE I put anymore eggs in the TDS basket.

Yes, I desperately want 1 Gig, but I am not going to pay $300/month for it to find that it is flaky.

So be careful. TDS over the last 18 months have been LURCHING from one technical disaster to the next.


I will keep you posted about both MetroCast and TDS offerings.

Happy New Year.

To me the issue always has been and always will be one of DISCLOSURE.

If they disclose I have no problem.

But the problem is that they, pathetic as they innately are, refuse to disclose breaching every ethical standard in the book. But then again, I am not sure of any book on ethics that will suggest that it is clever for an editor to brag, in print, as he did on November 29, 2012, that he was speeding along at 90 mph because he was in a hurry.

Not sure whether other than me cares. So this could be a non-issue.

Alton seems to be at peace. All strife but bad memories from the past. So ‘conflict of interest’ might not matter.
