Notes from the Heart...




I know I love it here in New Hampshire.  Do you?  If so, proclaim your affection
to the whole world and enter in a chance to win a $2,500
dream vacation to New
Hampshire.  

What you need to do is to download a
contest kit (which will include the "I love it
here!" sign you can print out from your computer), take a minimum of three
photos of yourself and/your family/friends in a NH location, and submit it
online.  While you're at the site your can browse to see who else loves NH and
vote for your favorite photos.  Here's one of my favorites (I also like the photos of
the guy doing a split!):  









The contest has been joined by several celebrities who have submitted their own
photos including former Boston Bruins hockey player Rick Middleton (who loves
the Balsams), NH State Senator Jeb Bradley (loves the mountains) and comedian
Jimmy Dunn (who loves the fried dough at Hampton Beach!).  I'm debating where
I love best before I take my photos... should it be in the White Mountains, or
someplace in Monadnock Region (where I live) -- or both? But I can't wait too
long to decide. The contest ends on August 18, 2009.  ~M.

This Week's Stories:

Kayaking in Maine
As a New England state, Maine offers a rugged coastline with lots of beauty. This
and the internal waterways make grabbing a kayak and exploring the waterways
a surreal experience...

Bar Harbor & Acadia National Park, Maine
If you want to experience some of Maine's best scenery, Bar Harbor and Acadia
National Park
should be at the top of your “must-see” list...
