Fiber is the future

It is hard to be sure how we'll get our in-home bandwidth in 10 years. Wired or wireless. Wireless in the form of 5G will take that long to reach into all the nooks and crannies of the lakes...

A different beast

The Majorís post got me interested in doing some research. The CDC has a great archive article on the N1H1 flu. https://www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu/cdcresponse.htm.

There are significant differences...

New poll each week?

Sorry Jeffk. I don't think there is a way to change your vote. I realized that shortly after the poll went up. Perhaps we should start a new one at the beginning of each week and watch how it...

Antibody test

I'm waiting for an antibody test to become widely available. It would prove that you've had CV-19 and fought it off. Some people are apparently fighting off this virus with only mild effects. It...

With little official information about the local presence of the pandemic, here's a poll to get a sense of what's going on.

Make the switch now

As long as you have the house and are going to make the move, can you switch your residency now? Make your MA house the secondary home. If you still work in MA, you'll have to pay their income...

Truck on the ice

Someone obviously believed in ice-in today. He had an ice augur and apparently got away with it.

NH has an open land policy, allowing people to go on property that is not posted. In the woods, this makes sense. When people start getting close to homes, it can get creepy, but is still legal, as...

Just a data point

This year, my M'boro assessment went up 10% but the tax bill (received yesterday) only went up 2%. My 2019 tax is back to where it was in 2017, after a small dip in 2018. Of the town's tax rate of...

The start time depends on where you are on the lake. In coves and northeastern areas, the freeze can come mid-December but it varies. It is important to keep the bubbler going when the new ice is...

Waterville Senior Pass is too Expen$ive.

$579 ain't going to cut it! Way too much for a senior pass, as many geezers only ski a few hours at a time. For $369 ($110 less) and about the same driving time, you can ski Loon Mountain. Get an...

Lots of steamboats steaming around today. I especially liked the one with paddle wheel propulsion.

DSL is getting better

It would be interesting to see which services you subscribed to that jacked up your price so much. My charge for cable TV went up (June to July) from $67 to $82 but the internet price remained the...

DSL is cheaper than cable and speeds are a lot faster than they were, but your speed capacity is determined by how far from their roadside switch you are. Some people in M'boro are still getting...

86 and skunky

Can't tell you the year, but the temp hit 86 at least once for at least a day or two and frequently gets into the low 80s. The algae blooms, especially the cotton candy blobs, start happening more...

The septic installer drilled a hole in the flapper valve, so the water would slowly drain out of the pipe between the holding tank and the leach field. This is so that if we're gone for a few months...
