Post New Hampshire: Live Free or Die!

Isn't that their motto? Can't live free in NH! Everyone we know who has moved there has paid big bucks for a home. Even if you want raw land - still big bucks. And I'm not just talking about "greater Boston" here, either! The part of NH that juts into Canada is also very expensive!

Vermont is even worse. All rich New-Yorkers into the ski/snowboard/apres-ski scene. We looked at all 3 states on the internet before deciding which would be most affordable. Maine wins, hands-down!

Alice, I couldn't help but notice that nice little bottle of Jaeger down in the bottom right corner. That's just about right at eye level for me once I've had a couple!

I'm afraid New Hampshire lost it best feature with the demise of the "Old Man In The Mountain"

Have you ever mounted a hand rail on the floor?

I have worked with men who had mounted hand rails on their floor, just to hold on to when things get to spinning too much.

Spinning? Who said anything about spinning... I was down there dusting. It's the best time to dust those pesky bottom shelves.

Default Cost of living isn't everything

We are in NC which has a low cost of living. We are a bit spoiled with how cheap houses are here. They are double in S.Maine. All of our expenses will probably double when we move to Maine. Job market is pretty good here, etc. But, when we think of home and where we want to raise our family it is Maine. I have extended family in NH and we considered NH, but it just didn't "feel" right. Each has to find the right balance for what "feels" right for them and cost of living is just one aspect.
We are just having a miserable time picking the town we want! Almost too many good choices. We'll be in the greater Portland area for sure and schools will be the deciding factor most certainly. Not test scores, but what will be a good match for our 4 boys special needs.

Yeah, but the gift certificate is only good at overstock.com, not the NH state stores.

Actually, I might taste one or two, but for the most part, I don't drink. I do enjoy a bit of coffee liqueur in milk if I am having trouble getting to sleep and I use maple liqueur in a few recipes. Other than that, everything in the picture has been there for nearly 3 years. It's genuinely a collection.

That's one of the ones I "tasted." I think I could use another bottle of that, just so I'll have one that's never been opened. I might have to taste it again, on special occasions.
