My azaleas on the south side (full sun) of the house do better than those in shade or on the north side. I have had good luck with Rhododendrons, both wild and domestic, standard and dwarf. ...

I agree with the above. A friend went on SSDI, but he hired a lawyer and the process took two years before a judge ruled. He then received retroactive benefits. When he turned 65 SS automatically...

I think many marinas which allow use of their ramps will have a driver do the backing for you (hourly rate?) You may want to establish a relationship with a marina and this would be a start. ...

Use local #

I find 293-2300 easier to remember.. The local numbers give direct response to th Tow boat captain. Some years ago, I called the 800 number on my key fob card and they got all confused about being...

Agreed--it's not just covid, but that's an easy thing to point to, especially as it it very quickly. The other things under discussion, as you note, have been gradual.

For young folks looking for...

Changing times

I think we're seeing a different kind of eating out. When I got my first restaurant job, they trained me to be a short order cook and cook's assistant. I was sixteen; there were bunches of small...

Location, location, location

1. Sawyer's is several hundred feet from my boat slip. 5 stars

3. Great ice cream. 5 stars

That's a pretty old quote, from a market that is unlike NH and related to a "no tipping" issue. I would suggest that in the last year or two, kitchen staff pay remained steady, per hour worked. ...

Favorite standard: Cheeseburger, O Rings an a Coffee Frappe. Unfortunately, this is allowed only once a year. Maybe a little more in 2021? Not gourmet, but walking distance, and Daisy can join us...

New niche

I see the Spirit fitting a niche that really isn't heavily served right now. As the smallest boat in their fleet, she'll be able to operate out of places presently not served meal/dinner cruises,...

Not very intrusive

As a (former) pilot, I'm amazed at some of the comments and negativity here. Yes, a plane makes some noise on take-off, but not more than many boats. The difference is, in a few seconds, at 80 mph...

Loon Nesting area

It's unfortunate that "Loon Nesting Area" on the chart draws people to the site instead of the intended warning to stay clear.

If the number of units goes from 77 down to 36, the septic may be able to handle the reduced load. Docks around the lake are selling for $100K in 24-48 hours. Attach a nice condo and sales for...

price of wood

So, if I owned a wood lot, this is a good time to harvest? Why aren't those owners doing that? All the steps I can think of, harvest, transport, mill, transport again to the retailer, seem to be...

DES follows this forum, and they control the dam, etc. They have many masters, Winnipesaukee, and everybody downstream. It's difficult, at best.
