Best Wishes

Our Best of NH deadline falls just as summer wishes take shape. This year, for my family, there's also a wedding.

Vacation Zen

Summer is about expanding horizons, but it’s also a chance to look at some familiar things in a new way.

Mission Statement

“We enhance stockholder value through strategic business initiatives by empowered employees working in new team paradigms.”

What's Next

To keep a reader engaged, the most colorful language pales next to a simple situation that compels the mind to wonder, “What’s next?”

Saying Grace

Comedian Louis C.K. has a famous routine where he mocks those who agonize over what to do with their lives. He demonstrates his answer by pointing to his mouth and saying, “Just put food in here.”

Having lived in concord for nearly 30 years, i’ve somehow become one of the old-timers who can say, “I remember when ...”

Next Bests

I’m a second child in my family, so I have a great sympathy for runners-up. When I see someone picked as “the Best,” I often wonder. “Who came in next?”

Name Game

My dad knew the name of just about every living thing in the woods and fields where I grew up. He was an amateur scientist and tried hard to impart his love of nature to his children.

Nature lessons from the red-tailed hawk and other NH animals

I’m sure that enough has already been written and said about the march vote of the NH legislature to deny the request of a 4th grade class to have the red-tailed hawk named NH’s official raptor, But I’ve got a stake in this.
