NH Primary Night — Governor Lynch

NH Primary Night — Governor Lynch, originally uploaded by marcn.


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.


“Lynch, a Hopkinton resident, won with 35,333, or 90 percent, to 3,783, or 10 percent, for Forry with 78 percent of the vote reported.”

With the Merrimack Dam gone, the Souhegan River has changed

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.

My MySQL talk at GNHLUG

Friday, June 20th, 2008

Last night I gave my much delayed talk about MySQL at the Greater New Hampshire Linux Users Group.

BTW, next time you are in downtown Nashua, stop by Martha’s Exchange and have a Cherry beer with the Jambalaya — spicy but delicious!
