rack vs dock

There are racks available at Harilla Landing, depending on the size of your boat. We are summer islanders and find that the rack is better than a dock since the boat doesn't sit in water and get beat...

Jo Jo's #10

JoJo's #10 on crusty bread, loaded. The best Italian I've ever had and I've tried many. We try to make it a staple once every week we're up there. Be prepared to get sloppy. They are definitely...

If your lake house is seasonal....

If you have a "winter" home somewhere else that has good local broadcast over-the-air antenna reception, you can do what I did.

My overall sense of this whole thread is that most of it is overreaction to a senseless act against nature. Yes, cruel, but there are far worse crimes against nature (humanity) that are legal and...

I guess I'm a new age old timer

I rarely use cash. Maybe 6 times a year, if that. Everything I buy, I use a credit card or phone/watch (ApplePay) to pay. The main reasons are two. It's a lot quicker and I get cash back (2% to...

multiple lanes

Actually, multiple lanes to get through a light with a later merge do, in fact, increase flow through the light since too many people are too slow to get moving when a light turns green. The merge...

cheap fix

Maybe there should be a yellow line set back a bit from the road and a sign for pedestrians to "Stand behind Yellow Line and wait for crossing light".

missed the point

The point was that if the suicides didn't have a gun, those deaths would likely have been done by some other means.

But we've gone way off topic.

....... or have a green light when you shouldn't stop. The light being dark (when not red) just looks like it's broken, requiring drivers to stop for a normal non-light-controlled crosswalk.

Let's not lump all together

Data shows that nearly 2/3 of gun deaths in the US are suicides. Of the remaining 1/3, many of those are defensive and/or police actions. So for anyone trying to sell 40,000 gun deaths as the key...

iHeart Radio

I use iHeart Radio on my iPhone for most long drives, Bluetooth connected to my car radio. I can listen to the same local station all the way, uninterrupted, from central MA to the Lake. Free. ...

better views

Nice shot. It's actually better to photograph the moon at any point other than full since there is no crater detail (shadows) at full. The best shot would be near sliver of a moon where the rest of...

I've tried most of the solutions over the years and have finally found my ideal solution for streaming my local OTA channels (28 channels in central MA) to my island house which has DSL.

Agreed. This is one of the best forums I visit on the web. Well run, and full of great "entertainment" and information. We are truly fortunate for the efforts of our Webmaster.

Not only does Lowe’s give me the no-fuss veteran discount (I have my Mil status applied to my Lowe’s account), my local Lowe’s has three Veteran-Only reserved parking spaces close to store!

Depends on town

Generally certainly true, but it really depends on which towns in NH and MA you own property in. They vary very significantly town to town. I pay more for property tax in MA than I do in NH and the...

I've owned both

I bought a 25' Bennington 2575RL tritoon with a 130hp Honda in 2001. It was a fantastic boat and would buy another Bennington. I did have a problem with one of the welds on the log which appeared...

If you do manage to get local channels you can use a Tablo DVR to stream those channels to any TV that has a streaming receiver attached or internal. I used to use DirecTV on the island. I now have...
