Notes from the Heart...

New Englanders don't complain much, but they do like to complain about the
weather.  And there's a lot to complain about lately after this week's snowfall.  
We love snow, but this is too much!  
Enough already!  Bring on spring, the
sunshine, the warmth.  Please.  ~ Marcia

This Week's Stories:

Feature: A Surprising New England "Must See"
For those of you in search of experiencing a uniquely New England tradition,
you simply must look for the
dump in whatever town you visit. The dumps
I’m talking about are not your run-of-the-mill, malodorous landfills...In fact, most
Northern New England dumps are magical, mystical places where tourist and
native alike go shoulder to shoulder in search of replenishment of their eBay

Recipe: New Hampshire Cassoulet
Cassoulet originated in Languedoc in southern France, and in that region, where
is remains a popular and iconic dish, it always includes dried beans, confit
(goose meat preserved in goose fat) and traditional herbs and flavoring.
Elsewhere, the term is loosely applied to dried bean casseroles with ingredients
varying by locale and usually containing meat or sausage.

From our Archives: Bryant's Stove Museum (Maine)
Bryant's Museum is a bit overwhelming. It is classic kitsch roadside Americana at
its finest, managing to be simultaneously fascinating, fun and tacky. And yet so
much about the museum is historically significant.

The Hunt For Literacy, a scavenger hunt throughout the
White Mountains, will be held this year on the weekend
of May 17th - 18th. Participants may choose either Lincoln
or North Conway as their start/finish point, following
clues from each stop to the next. Some stops include
activities, all will increase your knowledge of the
White Mountains while you enjoy the beauty and have fun!

“New this year is the option of participating for either one
day or both days,” explained Believe In Books Literacy
Foundation Executive Director, A.O. Lucy. “We want participants to enjoy their
drive and hunt whether the team is a couple or an entire family. The two day
event can be a little too much challenge for families with smaller children” he

The registration fee for the one day event is $125 per team, with a first place prize
of $1,000 cash. The two day registration fee is $185 per team, with a first place
prize of $2,500 cash. Both events will award prizes for second and lower place
finishes. Teams may have up to six people, but each location is limited to the
first 100 teams, so sign up today!

Log on to, or call (603) 356-9980 for more details and to
enter. All net proceeds from this event benefit the Believe In Books Literacy
Foundation’s “Books in Character” Outreach Reading Program.
