Good Echoes Through the Community at the Echo Thrift Shop

Two and a half years ago, I took a job with Friends in Action (FIA), a non-profit organization whose mission is to enhance the lives of people with developmental disabilities by creating inclusive social and recreational opportunities. My job was to help Friends in Action staff manage their burgeoning partnership with the Echo Thrift Shop. […]

More Free Concerts In Nashua!

Do you like seeing great live bands for free? We do here in Downtown Nashua; in fact we like it so much we think going out to see a lineup of premium bands should be free to all. The Levitt Foundation agrees and is offering 10 towns and cities nationwide a 25k grant to put […]

Off to Market

There is no shortage of great lunch spots in Concord! I’ve written about a few of my favorites, including the Little Creperie and Aissa Sweets. But you know the phrase, “you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone?” Sometimes that’s true when it comes to restaurants, too. Luckily for me and the people of Concord, […]

Happy Hour Starts Early

This past Sunday we set back the clocks, and the instant gratification was glorious. I probably went to sleep three hours later than usual on Saturday night just because I knew I’d be gaining an hour of sleep. I woke up feeling like a million bucks on Sunday morning, but now all of that comes […]

The Old Beach Highway

Sometimes it’s easy to forget that the world has changed around you. Either the changes are incremental enough or natural enough that it’s hard to say what it used to be before. And it’s only in conversation and reflection that we recall how things used to be. I stumbled into this trap on the way […]

9-5: Once A Wildcat, Always A Wildcat

The phrase “once a wildcat, always a wildcat” has many different meanings for graduates of the University of New Hampshire (UNH). For some, it means keeping in touch with classmates, donating to the school, or attending sporting events. But for some wildcats, like Emma Baillargeon, that means going back to pursue a career. Emma is […]

Bethlehem’s Historic Colonial Theatre

Jodorowsky’s Endless Poetry

Attending the Colonial Theatre’s showing of Alejandro Jodorowsky’s Endless Poetry on a cool Wednesday evening just as the leaves are turning was necessary. The mind grows weary if its soul function is work and income earning. Just as the leaves are changing so too is my summer’s-end bitterness turning to the jaded thoughts of winter, […]

Why I Keep Climbing Mount Major

New Hampshire has everything. We have fall foliage, mountains and beaches, lakes and oceans, snow and sunshine. My favorite thing about New Hampshire is not having to choose! With the beaches in my backyard, I have to wander pretty far from home for a good hike. I often wish I could stay near the ocean, […]

Bracing for the Tide

Brace yourself, the tide is coming. If you live in a populated area and have a short drive-way, there are waves of anxious candy-seekers headed your way on the 31st. So how can you prepare for the rush? A hefty stash of Halloween candy is a good start, and plenty of coffee to keep you […]
