Their 16th annual Fair from what I gather,
and I think we have been to the last 6 or 7 (maybe more).

Visiting “Sawyers Holiday Open House” in Barnstead, NH (next to the White Church) has now become an entrenched & mandatory Thanksgiving weekend tradition — and I think we have been going to it, without fail, for quite a few years — and always enjoy the experience. Very rewarding. Great people. Salt of the Earth.

So, it was on our lists of things to do after Thanksgiving. This year it was the first thing we did on Black Friday!

A wonderful, uplifting tradition. Such a tranquil and picturesque setting. I love wandering around snapping pictures.

Thank YOU the Sawyer family and their vendors.

“Sawyers Holiday Open House” Craft Fair, 2018, in Barnstead, N.H., Nov. 24 – 25.

Visiting “Sawyers Holiday Open House” in Barnstead, NH (next to the White Church) has now become an entrenched Thanksgiving weekend tradition — and I think we have been going to it, without fail, for the last four to five years, if not longer.

So, it was on our lists of things to do after Thanksgiving. Last year we could not get there until Sunday. To make up for that, this year we went around noon on Friday, before most of the nice stuff got snapped out. We were, of course, not disappointed. It is always a treat. Wonderful congenial atmosphere and as much pictures show a array of eye-catching creative products — all by local artisans. They also always have a selection of food for sale and free treats for the visitors. This year we bought some cheese.

A wonderful, rewarding tradition. Such a tranquil and picturesque setting. I love wandering around snapping pictures.

Their 15th annual Fair from what I gather.

They will be open Saturday & Sunday, November 24 & 25, 2018.

Thank YOU the Sawyer family and their vendors.

Thanksgiving around these parts would not be complete without the now landmark “Sawyers Holiday Open House” in Barnstead, NH, next to the White Church.

We could not, alas, make it until the Sunday given our trip to Maine. Usually we are there on Friday, if not Saturday. But, this year we got there first thing Sunday. As we expected much of the good stuff was gone — and that is “OK”! We are glad for the Sawyers and their vendors. They all do such a good job that they deserve the success and acclaim they now enjoy.

But, they still have some ultra cute chocolate Christmas tree decorations and I could not resist!

A wonderful, rewarding tradition. Such a tranquil and picturesque setting. I love wandering around snapping pictures.

This year is now done. Their 14th annual Fair from what I gather.

Can’t wait till 2018.

Thank YOU the Sawyer family and their vendors.

Sawyers Holiday Open House” has now become very much a beloved, mandatory Thanksgiving weekend ritual for our family. We have been going, without fail, for the last 5 years (if not more).  “Sawyers” is on the calendar well ahead of the holidays, and all other plans for the weekend have to be fitted around going to the ‘Open House’ — as early as we can manage.

This year we went on Saturday. Thought it was a damp, dreary day, Sawyers, as ever, was a warm, glowing oasis of color, creativity and much bonhomie. Delightful people. They really do make you feel at home within their cozy, treasure-packed home.

Lot of good stuff, as always. So clever. So compelling. And the hot cider was excellent. We had a lot of fun.

Can’t wait for next year.

‘Moore Farm’, Alton, New Hampshire — 2016 “Open House”, July 16.

“Moore Farm”, on New Durham Road, in Alton (N.H.) is one of our favorite local farms. It is also probably one of the closest working farms to us and, furthermore, we have a friend who lives there. So we are no strangers to this delightful, ever friendly farm.

Deanna always makes a point to note when they are having their “Open Houses”. Yesterday was one of them. We went. It was, as always, fun. Nice people. Beautiful day. Friendly lambs. We had fun. We bought some stuff. Met a few people we knew. Saw some very clever and creative works of art — banjos made from cigar boxes were a treat.

The music was good too — though I have no idea who she was. She needs to publicize herself a bit more. Maybe everybody, but us, knew who she was and how good she is.

Here are some pictures. Enjoy.

TDS, Upfront For ONCE, Holds Alton, NH, ‘TDS TV’ Open House On April Fool’s Day.

by Anura Guruge


As some of us are PAINFULLY aware Internet service by TDS in the Alton, New Hampshire area has been a JOKE for the last year or more.

Yes, they have been promising 1 Gigabit Internet for over a year but I have yet to see it.

As far as I am concerned TDS is but a poor and very bad JOKE. I am staying with MetroCast 105 Mbps Broadband Internet service. It might be 10x times slower than 1 Gigabit BUT it is stable, up 98% of the time and the bandwidth rarely if ever fluctuates. I think we all know that that will not be the case with TDS. I would hate to rely on Internet, TV and voice on TDS.
