Its not typical for Merrimack’s school children to have a snow day on Halloween, but tomorrow, that’s just what’s going to happen.
An alert sent out by the police department shortly before 2 p.m. on Sunday announced schools would be closed in Merrimack on Monday, not because of the snow itself, but because of the damage Mother Nature left behind after blowing through here Saturday night and early Sunday.
As of 6:30, an outage map on Public Service of New Hampshire’s website indicated that 10,949 of Merrimack’s 11,172 customers were without power. That is 98 percent of the town.
Fire Chief Michael Currier, who serves as the town’s emergency management director, said this afternoon that people in town started losing power between 6 and 7 p.m. last night, if not a little earlier, and it’s looking like many people may be facing extended outages.It truly is one of our tallest and appears [...]

Rocking the LA Guitar Festival

Červen 30th, 2011

Surf music may be enjoyed all year long, of course, but some may say it truly belongs to the season of long days and relaxing waves. Still others would look to holiday weekends within that season, and claim it is nearly mandatory to put on some twangy, beach-ready tunes to get in the mood.
That mood-getting-in is about to get lots easier, when none other than the doyen of the surf guitar rocks the 2011 Los Angeles Guitar Festival. Dick Dale will be playing the Redondo Beach event, as will other greats like Tommy Emmanuel, Jimmie Vaughan, Lawrence Juber and Bruce Forman. The dates are Friday, July 1 and Saturday, July 2 (note that Mr. Dale performs on July 3).
The Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center is not beach-adjacent, as you may know, but we’re betting you’ll pack your board shorts for some sand time before the show. Because the water isn’t far.
Several other masters of the guitarly arts will be rocking, [...]

Men, steer clear of shorts

Březen 30th, 2011

It was the great American philosopher Master Bartholomew Simpson who announced, in the late 20th Century, that we could eat his shorts. Such a startling pronouncement should have placed these garments on the sartorial scrap heap, yet for years since men have been spotted in board shorts, ‘baggies’, and worst of all, ‘budgie smugglers‘.
But all out war has now been declared on the cut off trouser. Tom Ford, a man so stylish he makes Yves Saint Laurent look like Rab C Nesbitt, has announced that men should never, ever wear shorts or flip-flops in a city. “Shorts should only be worn on the tennis court or on the beach,” said the former head of Gucci.
This will not have pleased the blokes who broke out their shorts at the slighest glimmer of Spring sunshine over the weekend. On fashion forums men have raged at Mr Ford, asking what, exactly, they are supposed to wear when the mercury rises and the public [...]
