We took the kids up to Manchester to the John Lynch Re-Election post-primary celebration. Spencer talked to a number of NH State reps asking about what it takes to get started in politics. The “Second First Daughter of NH” did a fine job introducing her father.

This morning I walked down to the Souhegan from behind the High School’s baseball field and was surprised by just how much lower the river was!
Here is a slide show of some of the photos I took from the section of the river above the former dam to near where it crosses under Route 3.
I recommend folks to take the fairly easy walk down and check it out yourself.
Eric Hutchins of NOAA Restoration Center and some other folks from NHDES Dam Bureau as well as some Boston College students taking some location measurements today. Just where the river bed will end up is still unclear until we have a few seasonal floods. The two little islands are no longer islands (see the Google Map of the area) and sit on a 4″ high sandy area. Looking down in the water you can see a much of sand moving, so there will be lots of change there. The nice thing is most places are shallow, rocky and calm enough to just walk across the river. The water level up beyond the highway through to Wildcat Falls are unchanged.
Well, thanks for Obama’s 4:30am text message, it is time to drag these 2006 photos out…
Here are some of my other photos of Joe Biden from the run up to the 2008 Presidential Campaign in New Hampshire.
Yesterday I took a few of the kids to Portsmouth to see the tall ships Friendship and Roseway. These close shots showing lots of texture came out well.
I don’t know who thought of it first, but Trevor got his cast signed and Logan his t-shirt signed by all three of them (and NH 1st lady Dr. Susan Lynch)
After the parade we had a picnic with some friends down at Wasserman Park which was nearly empty. The weather held out and it was a great day.
Here are the rest of the photos: July 4th parade, Merrimack, NH

Last month I ordered an hp 2133 mini-note with pre-installed Linux, specifically Novell’s SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 and it was back ordered until last week.
Here are the obligatory unboxing photos.
Man it is tiny, but after a few hours of getting use to it, it isn’t *too* small for typing. I’m getting to like the button under the space bar that disables the touchpad for when you are doing extended typing.

I’ll be blogging more about this nice hardware as I explore it — hw specs, restore CDs, installing Ubuntu/Hardy and Fedora 9, and any little hints along the way.
Full Disclosure: While I do work for HP, it is not in any PC/notebook related area, although I do use Linux (RHEL4, OEL) on ProLiant servers on a daily basis. Also this a personal purchase for home use. I didn’t even get an employee discount!
As well as a bunch of smaller, mostly political blogs.
The most popular photos are those of Hillary Clinton and John McCain from when there were campaigning for the NH Primary.
I keep a complete list of sites here:
