    Okay----Here's something about New Hampshire. Cornish, NH was the longtime home of author J.D. Salinger. He resided there most of his adult life. We may think of that state as being sparsly populated and woodsy with mouintains; but guess what? If I-wah was as densely populated as NH, the population would be about 8,266,000, more or less. But, I-wah is just over 3 million losers. Did I say losers? Ooops--that musta been a typo, I guess. Ha. Hope those factoids help you. But yeah---NH is about 1.3 million. But it is a small chunk of territory. Yup. Thank Mee.

    You may agree or disagree with this article and with the premise in the headline, but this seems like a reasonable analysis of what's going on with the price of crude oil.

    Cornish was also the home of the sculptor, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, and his former home is an amazing place, well worth the visit: https://www.nps.gov/saga/index.htm

    Okay---St Gaudins lived large! Definitely not a starving artist. But, he musta spent a lot o' time doing Yard Work! But yeah---I'll just try saying my "old, junk cars"(that are effective in lowering property values) are Metal Sculpture. Ha.

    Okay----If you don't have a good-paying job right now, you could always move to N.H. and become a State Trooper. Case in point: The Trooper who testified at the trial I've been following is in his late 30's, been on the force for over a decade, and his annual salary is $87k. Not bad for driving around in a cop car with cop motor and cop tires and cop suspension, pursuing and arresting drunk/drugged drivers and interviewing arrestees! A fun job. He's not even a senior official, and that does not cover the value of fringe benefits. So, yeah--do that. Hope that hyelps you some. 2022-07-22 (8).jpg

    Well in Croydon, NH they fired the chief aka sole officer and demanded he immediately turn over his cruiser and uniform. He headed out of the town meeting in the cold in his underwear.

    That is amay-zeen and ahhh-summm, JP! I hope his rad reaction to the policy change didn't harm his chances for employment, elsewhere. Some places, they'd put you in the booby hatch for observation, for a day or two.

    Went to another NH town today to check out their library etc. They have 3 town programs and 1 state program to help poor people with real estate taxes if they are over 65, disabled, a veteran or surviving spouse of a veteran. This makes me think moving might be doable even if some jerk like Romney cuts Social Security.
