March Maple Madness
North Conway, New Hampshire

The Open Door Bed & Breakfasts Inn the White Mountains will host the
second annual Maple Madness March...an inn-to-inn event! In addition to a
self-guided tour of the participating inns, ticket holders will sample maple
selections, both savory and sweet, and have the opportunity to participate in
the judging of each inn's entrance door decorations. As they continue their
drive, participants can learn about "sugaring" at maple sugar houses and visit
participating vendors, "Maple Country Partners," along the way. However, the
truly adventurous at heart are encouraged to do the Maple Madness
March...a cross between a road rally, scavenger hunt, and reality survivor
program.  For more info:
March Maple Madness.

Worth Quoting

"A winter landscape has a maturity you do not feel in summer.  It is mellowed
and burnished by the sandpapering of winter winds and cold."  from a
New
England Year
(1966) by Haydn S. Pearson

Notes from the Heart...

We just had another snowfall, but it was heavy, springlike.  Despite the
"burnished" landscape I feel stirrings of spring.  Those of us who are gardeners
are beginning to look at the landscape with anticipation, and maybe even
impatience.  Well, polish up your pruning shears because there is some
gardening you can do even in February:  Pruning.  Dr. Leonard Perry of the
University of Vermont gets us out in the garden again and
pruning your dormant
plants.

Good food doesn't have to take long to prepare, says Susan Nye, a NH freelance

The Frugal Yankee Tip of the Week

Be careful where you drive...50% of traffic deaths between 1998 and 2003 were on
rural, non-interstate highways yet these roads only account for 28% of all traffic.
Narrow lanes, sharp curves, teenagers.
