Worth Quoting

"A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people,
promptly announces she never did care for pie."  ~ Tenneva Jordan

Notes from the Heart...

I love today's quote. But why do mothers do that?  I think it is somehow innate
for moms to put themselves last.  But as our children grow (as mine are now 10
and 16), I am realizing that is not always healthy.  So, its time for us to bake
another pie (or have someone bake it for us!)  Hope you had a happy Mother's
Day yesterday!  ~ Marcia

This Week's Stories:

Feature: A Guide to NH's Antique Alley
Antique Alley in New Hampshire is the oldest antiques shopping district in all
New England.  Antique Alley is located on Route 4 between the cities of
Portsmouth and Concord, and encompassing the towns of Northwood, Lee,
Epsom, and Chichester.

Recipe: It's Brunch Season!
Springtime brings many familiar holidays, festivities, and celebrations such as
Mother’s Day, graduations, and first communions. In New England we are not
yet into the barbecue season although we long for those days (oh…do we ever)!
So, when one of these events comes into my life I use a brunch menu that works
for any of these events.

From our Archives: Springtime Birdwatching in New Hampshire
