Skew ?

That's the point. If it is important to you, you show up and vote, and bring friends to vote. If it is less important, as Flying Scot suggests, you don't show up, for whatever reason, work,...

Different services

You really need to talk to a company or two.
We had Terminix on the island several years ago, they did OK but suggested that anything they could spray, I could buy at Lowe's. We signed up for a one...

Vaccinations

Ja notice? The papers haven't been reporting all those horrible numbers of flu deaths and hospitalizations as they do most years. In this case, they got it right. Virtually nobody got the flu this...

Conservative vs Liberal?

When DES lets too much water out of the lake and I can't use my dock is that C or L? I don't really care. I'm just upset that they, a government agency, took x weeks out of my boating season.

Other propane appliances?

Even though you might not have them now, in locating the new tank, I'd consider what future appliances might be added and where these will go. We have a gas kitchen cook top, and a standby...

Congratulations. It's a great and memorable accomplishment. My solo was 1970 in Corpus Christi, TX. Later, I learned to fly tail draggers in Maine on a grass strip--skis in winter, not wheels.

Pics? or Toots?

I don't think we need pix. Play us a tune and post the youtube link. I guess the video would be visual too, so two birds with one toot. Maybe you'll have to re-christen C-Nile to "Tooters"? Boats...

Assess vs appraise vs tax rate

I continue to be amazed by the apparent widespread misconception that assessors have anything to do with setting the tax rate or the level of community spending. That's up to the voters. If you...

Rare?

Probably rare because they didn't make many games. Didn't make many because they couldn't sell many. In the 70's and 80's there were a lot of groups making local games following a "Monopoly" style...

Silt?

I feel like the problem is more about blowing silt around and damaging the clarity of the water and making it less hospitable to fish & other wildlife.

Menotomy

I seem to recall a thread a few years ago about Camp Menotomy--the land etc, not stories about campers. It seemed then that there were some good reasons the GS Council did not want to sell. They've...

So, the family has been on the lake since just after the war, built on Welch Island ~1960. Nobody would ever consider selling, even though total use might be 30-40 days a season. From 1970-2005, we...

Snowbirding?

This isn't really about snowbirding, but it's a nice dream. I think you need a longer horizon, i.e. start buying land now. I suggest contacting the NH Timberland Owners Association. Jason Stock is...

No cash?
