    Did you have a moving service do most of it, or did you have to organize it yourself? Just moving the internet service can take that long!

    Mrs.MtnDevil has been experimenting with homemade crackers. They are sublime.

But the broad lake is deep and algae free...so I'd avoid places like Missisquoi Bay (way up north) or St. Albans Bay (also up north)...

    I assume you are looking to rent? If so, get on it early, because the nice houses get booked fast, lots of repeat customers..if you find a spot feel free to run it by me via PM, happy to help.

    Lake Carmi is a fun lake that is much smaller, June is nice there, but algae can be awful in the second half of the summer...what dates are you looking at?
    Thanks much! Yes, we're looking to rent. Looking for a drivable vacation and we've enjoyed the times we've been to VT, NH and Maine before. They've always been driving/camping trips though and w/ the kids now, we thought we'd try staying a while somewhere. We'd be looking probably sometime in from late May to late June.

    What do you think about Lake Willoughby? Lake Bomoseen, Caspian, Crystal, Maidstone? Know anything about any of those?

    What about Squam Lake in NH? I've been there many times although not for a long time. My memories of it are positive. Also, my memories of it are that it's fairly quiet, some boats but not a lot and I think it's not a big enough lake for super speedy power boats anyway.

    Fun fact: On Golden Pond was filmed at Squam Lake. The house used in the movie belonged to an MD/researcher in the group that I worked with when I first moved up to Boston and I've stayed in that house.

    Fortunately, I only have to deal with my personal office space. They have an IT department that handled the tough stuff and very little furniture moved.

    Wait, does this mean I have to switch to potatoes?

    Moving, in general, is a pain.

The Christmas finally came. My parents bought the decorations, and were set to do it. Before that happened, I glanced out the window one day, and saw a man walking out of our yard with our tree over his shoulder. My dad, who was not one to be messed with, caught up with him. I was surprised that there wasnít a butt whipping. Instead, my dad gave him a stern lecture, using strong Navy language, and brought the tree home. We decorated it, but inside.
    Whoa. Who in the heck has the nerve to cut a tree out of someoneís yard?!?

    Letís hear the story. My first cousin-in-law once confronted a line cutter, asking them to move to the rear of the line. They refused. Cousin-in-law picked him up and carried him to the back of the line. Received an ovation.
    Great story! Iíve often wanted to do this but do not possess the upper body strength.

    Ha, I was just about to recommend Willoughby. VERY beautiful...it's out of the way, not much around it, which is good and bad...we love that place...if you're looking for lots of non lake activities, there's not much around, but we like being self contained at a lake. Same for Caspian, great lake (Bill Rehnquist had a house there) right in the famous Beer and Cheese Belt. Bomoseen can have mosquito issues for some reason.
    Get going on this early, good place book up fast...

    Buck O'Neil has finally been elected to the baseball hall of fame. About dawn time even if it is fifteen years too late.
