Laconia taxi

Last year (2019) I was able to use "Go Go Grandparent" from Manchester to MVYC. Later, to go back, they had no driver (Uber or Lyft) in the area, so I called Laconia Taxi --they promptly picked me...

It's a trend?

Maybe this will be a trend and the Veteran's Homes will go back to showing their regimental colors instead of the Army surplus gray they started in the 50's?
Maybe there's more to come? Red, white...

Travel and trailer

Obviously travel time depends on how fast you go and how crowded it is at Glendale. More crowded Sat am and Sunday pm, especially if you're trying to launch there. I'd figure 15 minutes, but my...

Times change

Times change. Before imports were prevalent, that Subaru at the head of the line was a Buick. Then it was a mini-van with a four cylinder engine. Who remembers when some states put troopers out...

Private Island?

I guess we all had cars we wanted in HS, and if we had access, they would be worth a lot of money today. My fraternity brother had a GTO convertible. He joined the Navy and became a pilot. Last...

2021 Spring Boat shows cancelled

No boat show in NE in 2021, Annapolis and Miami also cancelled. Newport and Fort Lauderdale are in the fall.

$$

I treasure the episode of Frasier when Dr. Crane, from Harvard is discussing with his plumber various Mercedes models and other aspects of high living. DOCTOR Crane was the loser.
