Frenemies

I have a window in my office that faces our awesome backyard. Fairly often, our landlord’s cats (and other neighborhood cats) sit outside my window on our porch roof. Mind you, my office is on the third floor of the converted barn we live in, so it’s no small feat for the cats to get…

Earth Hour 2009

This is not a shameless plea or effort to persuade, because that’s just not me. Frankly, I’m more of a follower than a leader. But, I thought I’d tell you about Earth Hour. We did it last year. It’s when you turn off all your electricity for an hour to recognize global warming. So here’s…

Celebrating Pat

I do have some Irish in me, but I don’t like corned beef. Which is why we had pork chops, baked potato and beets for dinner last night. But, our local church (the church led by Eugene Levy … for real), is sponsoring a corned beef dinner this Saturday. You get corned beef and cabbage,…

Town Meeting Time

Crap. My least favorite time of year. And if you don’t live in NH, or wherever else they have this unique form of government, you wouldn’t even know it’s Town Meeting time or what that means. Let me break it down for those who are unfamiliar. A town department (everything from recreation to police/fire) proposes…

A fun Tuesday night out

As if we didn’t spend enough money this weekend out at our pub crawl, J and I decided to do something different Tuesday night. We’ve been trying to go more this winter to the indoor rock climbing gym in Manchester, that way maybe this summer, we’ll actually feel prepared to climb outside and check out…

Pub Crawl 2009

Bolt made it home safely from his ice climbing expedition.So after one visitor left, two more came. Last March, we visited AlwaysGame in the Boston area and did a pub crawl. We tried to recreate the event in Concord. Just like last year, we only made it to 3 bars. We started at The Barley…

Mardi Gras!

Our dance studio hosted another theme party (they do it every month), so it has just been “our thing” to try to come up with crazy costumes. I think we did pretty well. The hats made it difficult for our turns in the waltz and swing, but they were still fun! We are currently waiting…

Guest Blogger

Democrat, Republican or Independent, the 2009 inauguration marked a very historic event. BossLady was one of the millions of people who attended and I asked her to document her attendance. If you would like to be a guest blogger in the future, please submit your entry and my Board of Directors will review and make…

Beer & Tunes

We’re still on our quest to hit all the breweries in VT, but we also don’t want to miss the ones in NH. So this weekend, we ventured to Keene to the Elm City Brewery. The main reason we went to Keene, though, was to see a jam band Railroad Earth in concert. The lead…

Lucky 13

I haven’t had anything blog-worthy to say lately and I apologize to my THREE blog readers, LOL. But I will say, I love Friday the 13th. And we have one today and next month. Yippee skippee! I’ve also felt like I’ve always had a good day on Friday the 13th, so I’m certainly not superstitious…
