NH Humanitics Council speakers to Merrimack Public Library?

Monday, November 4th, 2013

Merrimack & nearby folks: I’ll be writing a grant to get three speakers from the NH Humanities Council to come to the Merrimack Public Library in 2014.

Take a look at the speaker list to see if there are any you’d love to see. The PDF is available on this page: http://nhhc.org/humanities-to-go-intro.php

Here is the list I’ve put together in rough priority order: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/966718/FriendsMPL/nhhc-grant.html

Anti-Obama sign does not have the intended effect

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

Whie the sign has been up on Baboosic Lake Rd, Merrimack, NH for a few weeks, it was only on election day I stopped and took a photo. Oddly that was the first time I noticed the typo. Who misspells “YOU” as “YOE”?

IF YOE HATE YOUR GRAND KIDS VOTE OBAMA


Today my wife noticed someone had updated the sign.


I VOTED FOR OBAMA BECAUSE OF THIS SIGN

President Obama (w/ President Clinton) Rally in Concord, NH (2012), a set on Flickr.

This was a *huge* rally 2 days before the election. Over 14k people, the largest ever in NH. While Kids #4, #5, #6 & I got there around 6:15am, there was already a long line and we didn’t get a great viewing spot. Before they opened the gates, the line serpentined up and down Main Street four times.

It would be a crime *not* to take a look at all the national political figures making their way through NH every four years. Regardless of your political persuasion.

TIL Senator John Thune is really tall.
