Notes from the Heart...

Got a Harley in your garage?  You may want to dust it off and join the fun this
week at the
Laconia New Hampshire Bike Week, one of the country's largest
motorcycle rallies.  Check out this week's feature about Laconia's motorcycle
festivities (We've even included a little YouTube photo montage of last year's
bike week at the end of the article):
Laconia Motorcycle Week.

It hasn't been feeling like late spring around here, so soup has  been on the menu
quite a bit these days.  To warm up on these cloudy raw days try this week's
recipe for
Crab Tomato Bisque brought to you by Stage Neck Inn, at York
Harbor, Maine.

Nope, I haven't abandoned the "calendar picks"...I've just put more of them on my
3x a week blog on the's New England Travel section . Check it on
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for up to date info about what's going on
around New England.  I'll be posting some of the goings-on here as well!

The Frugal Yankee Tip of the Week

In the 2007, Americans spent $9 billion on Father's Day. Now some wags will say
that is way too much to spend on tacky ties, but here is the more interesting slant
on this. Americans spent nearly $4 billion more on Mother's Day, $13 billion in

Father's are getting the short end of the stick. Well, no matter. We've put together
a few ideas to make this Father's Day a unique. We have found 10 gifts ranging
from $6 to $155,000.
