Nonni's Italian Eatery~Concord, NH - 05/21/08 07:16 PM
There's a new place in town! Nonni's Italian Eatery-"Food Just Like Momma Used To Make"- recently opened in the Holiday Inn, Main Street Concord New Hampshire! My son took us out to a "belated" Mother's Day dinner. I got to choose, so I wanted to try Nonni's...Italian food is at the top of my preferred list! It was a Sunday evening so it was not very crowded...which was fine with me because I wanted to take a few pictures but didn't want to disturb people. We were seated by our waitress Katelyn who asked if we had been there before and when we (27 comments)

I did a Members only mini-rant about a week ago about a Septic Inspection gone awry ! The day before that encounter the same company did an inspection on another listing of mine. This is an older property that was being serviced by a Septic Tank and a dry well-(A vertical leaching system). When we had the system checked last week the afore mentioned company told my Seller the system was failed. This was obviously not good news. My Seller had already reduced the Sales price substantially and wasn't happy about having to invest more money. In New Hampshire there are very strict (16 comments)
There have been several Posts on here lately about aging, and for those of you who have yet to enter that "era" there is a secret you should know. For many of us....the image in our heads is not the image that you see. I see myself as the image above...mysterious,living on the edge, courting danger combined with glamour and confidence. A woman adored and admired, somwhat aloof and in total control! For weeks I have been catching snatches of a song that made me stop in my tracks! I didn't know the name and didn't (40 comments)
This is What It's All About There's all sorts of buzz these days about people and groups who are opposed to the Mortgage Lending Housing Bailout. A new web site called AngryRenter was initiated under the guise of a "grass roots" effort by ordinary people! There is an online peteition to Congress protesting the bailout and the comments section is overflowing with angry people who feel they are being cheated by the Governments' proposal. Well....according to Source Watch (a watchdog group sort of like Snopes), Angry Renters is a Front for Freedom Works and was initiated as a lobbying (30 comments)

As I was thinking about Mothers Day and my Mother who passed over 25 years ago ....almost on Mother's day, I was reminded of another group of Mothers. This must be an especially difficult time for the Mothers who have childred deployed in Iraq and Afganistan. We all have that fleeting sense of worry when our child leaves the perceived safety of home but brush it aside with the notion that nothing bad is likely to happen... and we busy ourselves with other things. But to have a child in a foreign land , where you know the people want to (27 comments)

The Lending picture in NH is less shaky than some other States, but the restrictions and "terms" rewrites have left the borrowing picture equally blurred. Out of this somewhat dismal picture shines a beacon of promise...while getting a mortgage loan, for first time home buyers, is becoming more difficult....purchasing or re-financing a mobile home will soon be easier. A $10million demonstration project that will make Fannie Mae-backed conventional mortgages (for the first time) for homes in a manufactured home cooperative park....is being launched by St.Mary's Bank and Merrimack County Savings Bank. Simultaneously, the New Hampshire Community Loan Fund is launching ROC USA (4 comments)
