Cover Bands [11 Jun 2009|09:17pm]

Quick question since I notice a lot of things being posted about music and bands.

Is anyone in this community involved with cover bands or just playing gigs regularly for a living in Southern New Hampshire? We've been looking to move to this area for a while and my partner is a musician at the moment making a living teaching guitar and playing in cover bands. He's curious to find out what sort of money bands are making for gigs.

Anyone have this sort of info or know someone who might?

xposted, I'm sorry.

Manchester Library Book Sale [02 Jun 2009|01:40pm]

I don't know why I would want to advertise this because I don't really want to compete with others for books but Manchester Public Library is selling off some of their old books. On Thursday June 25th, 2009 from 2:30 pm to 6:30pm you will be able to buy a bag for $5 and fill it with as much of the available material as you can fit in it. Read the Manchester Library Blog post about it here.

The Manchester Farmer's market should also be open that day.  Because the Farmer's Market is pretty much a stone throw's away you can do both at once.

I haven't lived in NH for about 5 years now, and my mother's finally forcing me to clean out my childhood bedroom as I'm making a more permanent move abroad. I'm just now discovering that I have an over abundance of really nice, and in great condition (some never used - pathetic) clothes, shoes, and books. Are there any stores in the area where I can sell back these items? Obviously, I'm not expecting to be able to sell the clothes and books to the same place.

If there isn't, I'll be donating everything to Goodwill or the likes. Just thought I'd see if I could make some much needed cash before doing that.

Random Project - Any Help Is Appreciated! :-) [01 Nov 2008|01:27am]

[ mood | creative ]

First off, thank you mod for letting me post this... :-)

I'm making this traveling notebook for my son, and one for my brother. I'm pretty much trying to find, one or a few people from each of the 50 states for this notebook (well, both notebooks). They both travel together and will be passed on to someone else in the USA so postage costs shouldn't be much when posting out again. What I'm looking at doing is having everyone put a state map postcard, or a descriptive postcard from their state - so it has the silhouette of the state with the state bird, flower, something like that... write about your state, what you like about the state, what your life is like... add photos, and just plain be creative with the books... when you've put in your entry and your happy with it - I'll give you the next address which will probably be in a neighboring state and you send it onto the next "host". You can write the same in both of the books... that's not a problem at all... :-) I've been rounding up people for the books, but they've just been sent out today to Washington (from Australia)....

So yeah, if anyone would like to help that'd be great and contact me by commenting here, email at sara.ringham@gmail.com or just message me on here and we'll go from there... if you have any questions let me know as well - it's after midnight so I'm sure I've missed out on something... thanks for helping anyone that is interested in helping me out!

These Cats Need Your Help!! [30 Oct 2008|05:01pm]

The boyfriend and I dropped in at the Humane Society of Greater Nashua today. We had heard about the overwhelming number of adult cats there that need homes fast. Starting tomorrow, Friday, October 31st, adoption fees will be waived for cats aged 6 months and over. All cats are fixed and micro-chipped. Those fees ($50 for the fix, $14.99 for the micro chip) will not be waived, however, adoption fees are normally in the range of $50 to $100, so this is a great opportunity to bring a cat in need into your home for a low cost!

If you're not aware, Humane Society shelters are not "no-kill" shelters. Animals who are not adopted after a certain amount of time are euthanized.

We visited each room and interacted with every cat and kitten in the building. They are all so adorable and in need of good homes! The shelter is also in dire need of donations of food and cat litter. If you cannot adopt a cat, please consider donating!

Thank you!

[13 Aug 2008|08:36pm]

My car registration expired in June, and I'd really like to get it renewed but just don't have the money to register it for the whole year. Does anyone know if New Hampshire has any temporary/part-year registration that I could look into?

Any help would be appreciated, I miss driving my car!

Heating Fuel Prices [18 Jun 2008|04:18pm]
[ mood | busy ]

Figured I'd share some info here, since it's recently become a rather large topic of discussion, with the skyrocketing price of oil...

Current state averages for various fuels (in their "native" units):
#1 fuel oil (Kerosene): $4.97 per gallon
#2 fuel oil: $4.53 per gallon
LP gas (Propane): $3.26 per gallon
Natural gas: $1.58 per therm
Electricity: $0.155 per kwh
Wood Pellets: $269 per ton
Wood pellets, bulk: $205 per ton
Cordwood: $195 per cord

Converting to a price per million btu of heat energy, for direct comparison of the raw price:
#1 fuel oil (Kerosene): $36.81
#2 fuel oil: $32.66
LP gas (Propane): $35.69
Natural gas: $15.80
Electricity: $45.43
Wood Pellets: $16.30
Wood pellets, bulk: $12.42
Cordwood: $9.75

Now, factoring in system efficiencies:
#2 oil - high efficiency (83%): $39.35
#2 oil - medium efficiency (75%): $43.55
#2 oil - low efficiency (55%): $59.39
LP - high efficiency (85%): $41.99
LP - medium efficiency (75%): $47.59
LP - low efficiency (55%): $64.90
NG - high efficiency (85%): $18.59
NG - medium efficiency (75%): $21.07
NG - low efficiency (55%): $28.73
Electricity - 98% efficiency: $46.36
Pellets - high efficiency (80%): $20.38
Pellets - low efficiency (70%): $22.29
Pellets - high efficiency, bulk: $15.53
Wood - high efficiency (80%): $12.19
Wood - medium efficiency (60%): $16.25
Wood - low efficiency (40%): $24.38

Most fossil-fuel systems in the state are in the "low" to "medium" ranges that I've given.  Some are lower.  A few are higher.

Pellet efficiency is split into "high," which represents typical boilers and furnaces, and "low," which represents pellet stoves.

"Bulk" pellet pricing is for loose pellets, rather than bagged, delivered to a hopper/silo, and is accurate as of today, from the manufacturer.  The bulk storage system (hopper/silo and feed system to move the fuel to the appliance) obviously is an extra cost during installation of the equipment.  Given the extra investment, I only gave a "high efficiency" number, because a system like that would typically not be installed with a low-efficiency appliance.

Wood efficiencies are typical, but can vary greatly.  Low (40%) represents an average outdoor wood boiler, although some are less than 20% and other "traditional" OWB's can be as high as 60%.  Low also represents a typical woodstove.  Medium represents a high-quality woodstove or a medium-efficiency wood boiler (either a top-end OWB or a conventional indoor boiler).  High represents a wood boiler using gasification technology and a thermal storage tank to maximize efficiency.

Attachment, natural parenting: Business? [11 Mar 2008|11:19am]

I have an unusual question and I don't know if anyone can help me.

I'm living in Ireland at the moment but my partner and I have considered moving back to the states in the next few years (likely New Hampshire or Vermont). Because the Dollar to Euro is going lower and lower and house prices are ridiculously cheaper there than here we will have a decent amount of money coming over.

I have a few questions:
I would like to start a business, preferably online and physical, dealing in attachment/alternative parenting: cloth diapers, slings, natural baby supplies, clothing, wooden toys, etc... you get the picture-- also provide a place for mothers to meet for breastfeeding support, etc. I'm always looking for tips to get started if anyone has started a business in this manner before (not necessarily the same product but a shops a shop a lot of times).

So, how successful do you see a business like this being? What are some good towns to consider that may be inclined to this sort of thing? I'm looking for a place with an interested client base and somewhere that isn't terribly expensive in terms of retail rentals.
