Notes from my back porch...

Moose are rather elusive creatures, prehistoric-looking and with an ill-deserved
reputation for being rather slow in the brains department.  They tend to stay to
themselves, deep in the northern New England forests, peacefully foraging on
twigs and leaves.  But their encounters with humans often are on our busy
roads, with disastrous consequences for both the moose and humans.  With our
fall foliage season in full swing -- and our roads filled with cars, its good to
know what to do should you encounter a moose on the road.  Click here to read
Moose on the Loose in Northern New England's Roads...Tips for Staying Safe."

Book Review: Good Fences
Photographer William Hubbell’s new book, Good Fences, captures the beauty
and variety of New England’s stone walls, including many in New Hampshire
-- with special attention to the walls of Warner. It also, simply and
methodically, builds a history of our region, illustrates the art of wall building,
and testifies to the skill and determination of the builders, then and now. Why
are so many stone walls three feet high, give or take? Because three feet is
about how high a man can lift a big stone on his own.
