This is a very BIG DEAL. “The Globals” is the World Cup of high school robotics. They are competing with teams from all over the WORLD. So, it was huge that this team from New Hampshire managed to make it. Appears that they are highly seeded and the coaches are ‘quietly confident’.
You can watch them here:
‘Prospect Mountain High School’ (Alton, NH) Robotics Team Is Going To ‘The Globals’ And Needs Your Support.
So, they are going to ‘The Globals‘ in Detroit, Michigan, in April 2018. They were a ‘wild card’ favorite.
Going to ‘The Globals‘ is an expensive proposition and they need to raise a fair amount of money. So, if you can help, that would be much appreciated.

This was the second ‘Battle of the Bay’ we have thus attended — we also having gone to last year’s. It was fun.
Since the ‘Portland Pie Co.‘ was just a block away we decided to go there. We had been there, once before, a couple of years ago, with all four kids and it had been ‘OK’.
There was a 20-minute wait, though all the tables were not taken. I think it had to do with staffing.
It is nice enough inside and the house red wine is pretty damn good.
I ordered the ‘Fryeburg Fair Cheeseburger‘ without any bread and opted to UPGRADE with a fruit salad.
The two-patty cheeseburger sans a bun was pathetic. Emaciated and anemic. The burger patties at McDonald’s are twice as thick and ten times more flavorful. NOT IMPRESSED. It was insipid and unappetizing.
The fruit salad was a total bloody JOKE. 9 slices of apple, one grape and a sliver of peach. That was it. 98% apple. I couldn’t believe it.
Deanna had the ‘Steak and Bleu Salad‘ and was not enthused by the salad part!
Devanee had a pizza and that was fine.
Teischan had the ‘Nacho Grande‘ appetizer with the $3.00 beef burger upgrade. A lot of Nachos but, at best, there was probably half of a burger of meat.

This, of course, is a very worthy and worthwhile initiative — one that I feel very strongly about.
It is spearheaded by Jessica Livingston, of ‘JLiv Inspirations‘ and the head of the ‘Concord Multicultural Festival‘ committee, a remarkably committed and driven spirit extremely proactive in making New Hampshire a welcoming home for ‘New Americans‘.
So, please, get behind this and spread the word. Thanks.

It does not get any easier or more convenient. And now they tout and honor a ZERO co-pay. So, no cost other than what they bill your insurance.
Very efficient. Very professional. Quite fast. Very little wait time.
Yes, I know that they don’t even KNOW what this winter’s flu virus is going to be!
Same story as last year.
The vaccine, quite literally, is a shot in the dark. Best guess, hope for the best, fingers crossed.
But in my old age and with very little blood cells, red or white, I can’t take any chances.
In 2010, around Thanksgiving, I nearly died — a doctor at Dartmouth Hitchcock going to great lengths to see if he could make it happen. Since then I have been getting a flu shot, every year, in November.

As I did for last year, i.e., 2015 – 2016, I am going to do just this ONE post and update it as more and more towns report.
So ideally anybody and everybody looking for 2016 – 2017 New Hampshire property tax information will always end up at this post. OK? Clear? Thanks.
As of December 12, 2016, 225 towns had published their 2016 – 2017 Property Tax Rates. (As always I have excluded the (exotic) N.H. Townships, Grants, Locations and Purchases that had $0.00 tax rate for the year. Wikipedia has a list of all these N.H. ‘exotics’. The other, non-zero exotics have a grey background and a (U) notation.)
This 225 list (marked ‘Final’ by the State) constitutes our ‘full house’.
PLEASE note that these property tax rates in isolation are MEANINGLESS unless you also factor in the relative property values of the towns. Please read this post. Click image on right to ENLARGE.
All the data used from the NH Department of Revenue Administration Tax ‘page’.
For 2015 – 2016 they have a new Website. The data provided and the format is a bit different.
They have included a ‘dashboard’ to try and make it easier IF you understand their lingo.
