New England Lobster Roll

New England Lobster Roll

Now, Lobster is all the rage for the last few years.  For some reason they are very plentiful and the price (I’m sorry Lobsterman) is way down.  Like you can buy a pound of lobster meat, all cooked and picked for $25.  I think that is ridiculous, if you have ever picked a lobster you would agree with me.  To get one pound of lobster meat, that makes about 3 or 4 actual lobsters, and yes, you can…

A trip up to Mount Washington on the Cog Railway

A trip up to Mount Washington on the Cog Railway

Sid and I have wanted to ride the Cog Railway to the top of Mount Washington for years now so I had been watching the weather and yesterday we decided to do it. The views were breathtaking and years ago we had driven to the top but had never been up this side, which is a totally different perspective. The Cog Railway is a one of a kind train ride to the highest point in New England and is…

Driving in the White Mountains of New Hampshire

If you ever get to New England, a drive through the White Mountains in New Hampshire is something you should definitely add to your must see list. As we get into late summer the trees are still green but you can start to see the effects of the shorter days with the leaves starting to yellow a bit.

What’s the rectangle in the lawn?

What’s the rectangle in the lawn?

Here’s a photo I recently took and I wondered how many others have seen something similar? So what’s the rectangle in the lawn? Is it just a quirk of the lawn? Man made? Aliens landing on the lawn? Go ahead and take a guess.

In fact it’s actually a septic tank that is buried there. It’s so close to the top of the ground that there is very little dirt above it so when it get dry,…

The New Ikea Bookbook-video

I’m not sure that you’ve seen the video for the new Ikea Bookbook and the campaign has some interesting points as well as homage.

Are we just making noise?

Are we just making noise?

One of the things that I have been doing is a lot of examining of social media and questioning if we are now just making a bunch of noise? Are we at a stage that everyone is using social media but it’s lost it’s value? Overall my feeling is yes and I say that as someone that has been actively involved on social platforms for years.

It’s a natural progression as far as I see and much like…
