Sometimes, It's easier when the tip is just added on to the bill. I recall staying at the Jared Coffin House (Nantucket) where breakfast was included. Prices were on the menu with a note that...

There was a NH law proposed a few years ago to have a tiered flat rate surcharge for registration based on miles driven, calculated from annual inspections. Pretty intrusive to many, and others...

Competition?

At home, I have Comcast as the only game in town for internet, so I use it for TV and landline phones too. Expensive, but pretty reliable even when electric wires are down.
Been using Roku for...

pay up

Maybe Hart's and Polly's didn't buy the ad? It's a heavily commercial video. Same ad format in other areas they recorded and display on their website.

DOT is coming

DOT has been complaining for years that the EV folks don't pay their "fair share" of road tolls (gas tax), and they're pressuring the legislature(s) to fix that. The penalties for gas guzzlers...

Maine Cabin Masters

Watched an episode tonight (Sunday 1/24) on Comcast 123 which I thought was DIY, but I guess is now Discovery+. Budget seemed reasonable at $45K. Better than that swimming pool show where they...

Peddle bikes?

Peddle bikes may be the wrong phrase, but I have seen, at the Weirs, a group of folks with four wheel gasoline powered RR service carts. I imagine they have some sort of agreement and schedule...

Split it

I guess if Uncle Sam "withholds" his share, that isn't really splitting, is it? Probably the same in Michigan. NH used to have a 10% tax on gambling winnings--lasted about 18 months before it was...

work at the lake?

My front yard?

Am I correct that many lakeside camp owners own land on both sides of the tracks? It's one thing to have a train roll through on a predictable schedule, no stops. It's quite another to have hikers...

Convenience--Do they sell ammo? If they sell guns and ammo, the unwanted will stay away.

Our local gun shop sign on the door says "NO MASKS". I guess their camera doesn't have x-ray vision...
