Hoa

I've shopped around the Lakes Region for a 'decent' HOA. I settled down at Wildwood Village on Lake Winnisquam. We do have limited mooring for boats and storage for kayaks/canoes. HOAs on Lake...

If you're going to buy a boat that often, you might as well join American Boat Club! New boats every year for about the same price you would pay for a slip!

Of course, I am partial to Formula...

Lily Pond Station

Lily Pond station was moved up on Old Lake Shore Road across from Gilford Hills tennis center. It is a private residence, but the building retained the depot feel.

RVs

There are many factors to consider, not just chassis and motor. Definitely have it checked out by a reputable dealer or repair shop. I trust Bill's RV on Rte 9 in Chichester. If Campers World won't...

Outdrive vs trim tabs.

Formula owner since 1988. I learned a lot about porpoising and other alimonies. First off, I use the trim tabs to level the boat port and starboard. Contrary to popular belief, the Trimming the right...

Belknap

Well, the game plan is to bypass the free staters in a legal way. So far the AG allows the majority of the Belknap Commission to overrule the Silber/Sylvia even tho they have the lead seat.

So...

Connecticut

I travel through Connecticut often. Seems like they aren't serious about stopping speeders. I travel 70 mph down 91 and cars are whizzing by at twice the speed! The back roads to Lime Rock is insane!...

NH law

Stick-built homes are to have a one-year warranty. Many home builders don't tell their customers and have gotten away with it! So keep that in mind.

Some prefab contractors give 5-year and or...

Verizon is very spotty in Lakes Region. On Lake Winnisquam, I only get 3G service, no 4G. Many have complained and the only solution is voice-over wifi. Not an acceptable solution. Some have switched...

Old TV with Roku

Pretty happy here with one of the first flat screen tv made. The plasma LG works flawlessly with the Roku. I had to get an HDMI to the composite dongle for it to work!

I had 3 TVs. Now I only used...

Water Quality

It's a known fact many McMansion owners use illegal fertilizers and pesticides. They would spray after hours so they don't get caught!

The more McMansions the worst it gets!

Ever notice they...

Interesting

I have had a 14' Scorpian since the '70s. Great sailboat and durable! I went to the MP HQ to register a few years back. They said no need but they did suggest a red sticker that you put your name and...

Just WOW!

Stop going to major fast food chains since the green slime mess!

'Eat this, Not that' tells a lot about food gouging as well as prices!

Except for Wendy's which has fresh salads, I avoid all....

Watch all your receipts

I and Tina diligently watch all receipts. We found errors from all stores, including Market Basket and Hannaford's. Seems like what is advertised, the shelf price may not be the same as on the...

Out of Walpole NH is second to none. A good number of homeowners in the Lakes Region will agree! Its worth to give them a call. They use local products in their build. Go local!

Been the Italian Mafia seaside destination for decades. Slowly eroding away. An Italian once told me the best Italian restaurants are in Scituate and not in the North end. It's been a while since...

I'm with you on this. Winnisquam and Newfound are perfect for this size, but not on Winnipesaukee. I have a 20' with a 115. A bit crowded with 2 families but doable. Pulling a tube at capacity is a...

Agree with VTSteve

Dealer detailing is great until you take it to a car wash and boom! Gone.
$300 plus in the dealer's pocket!

Privitizing public lands

Google and Sunapee and Wachusets' privatizing did not go well through the years. Some years they ask for forgiveness and some years they made out very well and the state did not profit from it. Plus...

I agree but lately, they have been very busy. I discovered another barber that is also very good and accepting walk-ins. He is located in Refresh Salon on Union Ave. in Laconia.

Preparing for a major shut down

With an experienced management team out of the way, I expect the Gunstock crew to be following suit. The Free staters will now have the opportunity to privatize the mountain. They can't sell the land...

As far as regulations are concerned everything has to be overkill! No wonder it cost a fortune to build in the US!

As we go green with appliances 20 amps or even 15 amps will no longer be needed.
