“Inklings” and a Happy Happy New Year 2014’

Very strange but I had started a whole story to you a few days back about something I saw on Fox News that bothered me, and now I just can’t find it anywhere.  I have an “Inkling” that it might be God’s way of telling me don’t start the first column off of the year with a negative, let’s spend time on the happy positive things that happened this week….  I will tuck it in at the bottom, but now you know it’s coming so once you get the first “Inkling” that we are close to the end just stop reading, I’ll understand.

I didn’t plan to title our story “Inklings” but when I just typed it to you, I decided that should be our title.  The definition of “Inkling” is having a little idea or some knowledge about something.  I love the way this word sounds when I say it or think it.  Inkling, I bet you agree.  We don’t use it much anymore, but it’s a keeper for me.

The first “inkling” I get each year around New Year’s Eve is that the Millennium Mile event will be happening sometime soon.  Did you know that this year marked the 15th anniversary?  We should all thank John Mortimer and Matt Downin for bringing this event to us and hosting it here in Londonderry each year.

John and I first came across it by accident, when our girls were very little.  We were leaving my mom and dad’s home over at Kendallwood Condominiums, and we tried to drive down Mammoth Road, only to find the road blocked.  We realized it was some type of race, so we got out of the car to see what was going on.  Remember this would have been one of the first years for the Millennium Mile.  We were able to stand right at the end of the course and watch some of the fastest runners in the country dart across the finish line in less than 4 minutes.

We were in awe, and really had no idea that in the years to come some of our best family memories would be running with our little ones, our neighborhood family, and even our family from Connecticut that we spend New Year’s Eve with each year.

About 6 years ago Mackensie broke her arm while sledding down wild terrain; well that was where they were headed anyway.  What really happened was before the sledding event a dear friend decided to treat all the little ones to Hot Cocoa at our own Londonderry Dunkin Donut’s as they drove to the “mountain”. Next thing we knew…Mackensie tripped over a sled rushing out of the van to get her treat, broke her arm, and that ended the great sledding adventure for everyone that day.  Again “Life really is like a box of Chocolates” you never know what you’ll get in a day.

“By the Grace of God”, another one of my favorite sayings…. Mack really was fine, but she did need a full arm cast.  It didn’t stop her from running the Millennium Mile though.  Wish I could find a picture to show you, I just might still.  That’s what John and I have always loved about what John Mortimer and Matt created.  It’s for everyone, families,  serious runners or just walkers who want to start the New Year off outside, or I think “Right”.

My most precious memory this year happened after the start… My sister Christine, my nephew Dan, and I were rushing back to to our car so we could drive to the finish, and who do we see but Regan Schohanic…. and three little ones, hustling to the start line to begin the race.  Yes, the race had already started, but what a Kodak moment!  That’s what life is all about, not always getting hung up on life’s starts and finishes, but just enjoying the steps that get you there.  Again wish I had a picture, all the runners flying past and there was this precious little group running against the crowd to get to the official start… Melted my heart!
Just a couple other “Inklings” I heard about this week that I want to share with you….

“Our” own Visit Londonderry member, Martinelli Travel, will be having a wonderful event that we should all try and to attend on January 14th, 5:30 – 8:00pm.  It’s called…….

Travel The World with Martinelli Travel.  This will be a great chance to speak with travel experts that can help make all of your travel dreams a reality.  Also if you have not been to their new location in the Londonderry Commons plaza, near Whippersnappers this will give you a chance to say hello.  Don’t let planning your vacation be intimidating, Faye will make you feel at home, and help you determine what you can and should spend.  Martinelli has been there for all of us throughout the years, they give back to the community constantly and I promise you, you will be glad you went.

Another member of Visit Londonderry “our” own House of Samurai will be offering a Community Self Defense class tonight.  I will tell you all about it next week, on the Road.  Hanshi Bernard is another member of our community family who constantly “gives back” and asks nothing in return.

Next week I promise to not just jog, kinda of walk really, on “our” roads but I will get back into my car and learn more about “our” great town, businesses and places we should all “Visit”.

With A Grateful Heart Sherry<3

Okay I warned you here goes… I know you have an “Inkling” it’s coming…

Okay, this is what upset me this week… John likes to put on the morning news as we are both getting ready for work.  Fox News it was this morning.  Two anchor people, one male and one female, were suddenly showing a video of a Federal Express employee, only his hand mind you, but throwing a package onto a deck from a distance.  Well “of course” because the home owner had a surveillance camera this was caught on tape.  Well another “of course” the home owner made a stink about it and shared it with the company.  That’s why we got to watch it on the news.

I have an “Inkling” that there was nothing more than a light book in the box.  You could tell the way it landed.  Well the anchor people went onto tell us, LAUGHING mind you, that well that federal express worker got quite a surprise, “ha ha ha” soon after he received a pink slip and was fired for this!  I was so ashamed of those two reporters!  Laughing because someone, who probably has been a devoted worker, has a family, was probably just trying to have a little fun, like throwing a newspaper, now has lost his job over this foolish thing right before Christmas!  I’m even getting unnerved again just typing it to you here!

What the heck is the world coming too!  I hate to type it but I think they should be removed from their jobs for doing something stupid and mean, much more deserving of losing a job then just throwing a package.  Now don’t you dare think it was breakable or perishable?  These men and women who make deliveries to all of us, are well trained, and let’s face it if it was “fragile” it would have been written all over the package.  Even the reporters said, it was pretty clear it was nothing that could be damaged.  Now that I think of it, I bet it was something ordered for the family like a piece of clothing… very light, again even I could tell just watching the video.

Okay, that’s it… but it scares me, since when do we laugh at someone losing a job!  It reminded me of the scene on Hunger Games ….. smiling and laughing as he’s introducing the contenders that would be soon be killed in the hunger games.  In the movie, it was his role, and it was powerful, but in real life……paid anchor people doing it …Just plain wrong!

(I just investigated more, and it turned out it was an American Girl Doll clothing item…. I was right and I could tell that from just watching the clip, what a shame)

OUR NEXT NEW HAMPSHIRE SHOWS
October 30 BRENDAN JAMES and TONY LUCCA
“‘Simplify’ represents me finding a clarity I have been searching for for years,” says critically acclaimed piano-based singer-songwriter Brendan James of his new album “Simplify.” His fifth album, it is also his most elegant and emotionally direct album to date.

An active supporter for all levels of equality (he has spoken out for Marriage Equality and is considered a “Straight Ally”) and a supporter for the men and women in the military (he’s performed for the USO and troops), his advocacy is well-known and widespread. Larry Flick, influential host of Sirius XM’s “OUTQ,” says of James, “The remarkable thing about Brendan is that he is an active, creative citizen of the world. His songs do more than reflect his experiences in typical singer/songwriter style. He weaves his views and stories into a musical framework that triggers empathy from a wide array of listeners. He’s proof that, in the right hands, music can truly be universal.” Listen

Tony Lucca captured America’s hearts this year as the Team Adam finalist on NBC’s hit TV show “The Voice.” Lucca’s cover of Hugo’s version of Jay-Z’s “99 Problems” reacted strongly, propelling Lucca to the No. 3 spot on iTunes Overall Singles sales chart and No. 1 on iTunes Rock Singles chart. Additionally, Lucca’s duet of “Yesterday” by The Beatles with coach Adam Levine (Maroon 5) landed Top 5 on iTunes Overall and Pop Singles sales charts.

In 2011, Tony Lucca appeared as himself on NBC’s “Parenthood” performing his song “Like Love.” Lucca was also tapped to appear in friend Justin Timberlake’s 901 tequila commercial spot. His songs have been featured on TV’s “Friday Night Lights,” “Brothers & Sisters,” “Shark,” and “Felicity” and in Kevin Costner’s feature “Open Range.” He has been seen on E! Entertainment Television and A&E, and performed numerous times on NBC’s “Last Call With Carson Daly.” Listen

October 31 THE TUBES
This show is SOLD OUT

November 1 LORI MCKENNA
Lori McKenna’s unusual combination of professional and personal life, at least in the context of the modern music industry, has been well-documented. Admired and recorded by Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood and Alison Krauss (to name just a few), McKenna is a master at chronicling the small, difficult moments between romantic partners as they navigate their relationships. Listen

“Poignant and profound poetry. She has an uncanny ability to paint stories of the human condition in a way that reminds us all that we are not alone.” - Keith Urban

November 2 TUPELO NIGHT of COMEDY
This very special night of comedy features Brad Mastrangelo, Doug Blay, and Karen Fitzgerald. Always a GREAT night out and inexpensive. Doesn’t get any better than that!

November 3 DADA
Since the release of dada’s groundbreaking 1992 debut Puzzle, the trio has created an array of songs boasting progressive rock musicianship, dazzling vocal harmonies and melodic power pop layered with inspired psychedelic and experimental rock impulses. Adding to the trio’s groundbreaking line of attack are the marathon-length shows that deliver on the promise that every performance is the only one of its kind.

Two decades after the Los Angeles outfit embarked on its singular journey, singer-guitarist Michael Gurley, singer-bassist Joie Calio and drummer Phil Leavitt are celebrating dada’s 20th anniversary with an extended U.S. tour that kicked off at The Key Club in Hollywood on Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2013.

“This tour will be about a reset in a way” said Calio, noting dada plans to include songs seldom or never played by the band throughout the upcoming tour. “For right now I think dada is about digging into our roots, examining and celebrating – enjoying it a little bit more.” Listen


NEW HAMPSHIRE NEW BOOKINGS
January 4 WILLIE NILE
Anyone who’s paid attention to his recent output knows that Willie Nile is currently in the midst of a creative renaissance that’s produced some of the most compelling music of his 35-year career. The tradition continues with his forthcoming American Ride, is being released on Loud and Proud Records, where Nile becomes the first artist released under the label’s new deal with RED Distribution.

“It’s pretty rockin’ over all, but there are some left turns and right turns along the way,” Nile says of the album, which was fan-funded through Pledgemusic.com. “There are songs about the rights of man, songs about freedom, songs about love and hate, songs about loss, songs about God and the absence of God, and songs about standing up for your fellow man. It’s upbeat and full of life. I’m thrilled with how it came out.” Listen

January 10 KELLER WILLIAMS
Since he first appeared on the scene in the early ’90s, Keller Williams has defined the term independent artist. And his 16 recordings tell only half the story. Keller built his reputation initially on his engaging live performances, no two of which are ever alike. Williams’ solo live shows—and his ability to improvise to his determinedly quirky tunes despite the absence of an actual band—quickly became the stuff of legend, and his audience grew exponentially when word spread about this exciting, unpredictable performer.

Today, whether performing as a one-man band (a stage show constructed around Keller singing his compositions and choice cover songs while accompanying himself on an acoustic guitar connected to a Gibson Echoplex delay system that allows him to simulate a full band), with a backing band (of which he has many – Keller and The Keels, Williams with Moseley, Droll and Sipe, and most recently Keller Williams with The Travelin’ McCourys and with his new six–piece outfit More Than a Little, among others), or solo acoustic with simply he and his guitar, Keller always reveals himself as a is an artist of great stylistic breadth and infinite imagination.

He is a singer, songwriter and musician, always on a quest for the new. Keller Williams has never followed the prescribed path laid out by the conventional music business but rather one of his own making. It’s a path that has served him well. Listen

March 23 ENTER THE HAGGIS
Toronto roots rock band, Enter The Haggis, is at the heart of a true grassroots success story, and never has this been more evident than with the group’s latest release, Whitelake . Recorded at a rustic cottage surrounded by Canada’s picturesque landscape, and funded entirely through the generous contributions of loyal fans, Whitelake occupies a musical space that lies somewhere between the fiercely creative and contemporary soundscapes of Radiohead, and the heartfelt story telling and infectious grooves of The Band.

Five albums and a decade on the road have seen Enter The Haggis evolve from wildly popular local band to established international touring act. Their formula for success has been a simple one: record great music, back it up with inspired live performances, and tour constantly. It’s this uncompromising commitment to their music and fans that has seen the band garner top ten charting positions on Billboard, Amazon, and iTunes; major television appearances such as A&E’s Breakfast with the Arts and Live with Regis and Kelly; and their very own PBS special.

Eclectic. Electric. Roots Rock Reinvented. Listen

NH NONPROFIT LOSTNMISSING INC. NAMED A FINALIST IN FIFTH ANNUAL TOM’S OF MAINE “50 STATES FOR GOOD”™ PROGRAM


LostNMissing, Inc. represents NH as one of 51 Finalists in the Running to Earn $10,000 in Funding

LONDONDERRY, NH, September 16, 2013 – LostNMissing Inc. (LNM) has been selected as the only finalist from NH in the fifth annual Tom’s of Maine “50 States for Good” community giving program and now has a chance to win $10,000 towards their awareness campaign, geared towards colleges and universities, to help bring awareness on the importance of always maintaining a buddy system to and from their evening and weekend activities to avoid becoming a missing person. Through a public vote at 50StatesforGood.com now through October 15, supporters can help bring the funding with the simple click of a mouse. As the only chosen nonprofit, for the State off NH, LNM hopes all residents will take a moment and cast their vote. (vote at http://www.50statesforgood.com / click on the State of New Hampshire.)

The “50 States for Good” program seeks to uncover local nonprofit groups that address community needs and engage volunteers to get the work done. LNM’s goal is to have every college and university adopt their educational awarness program, “Friends Don’t Leave Friends Alone”, nicknamed “Don’t Leave Friends”, as part of their safety programs. Posters for dorms, and local establishments, that students may frequent is part of their offerings as well as providing training to assigned college representatives to help continue the program. They are also seeing college students to volunteer and be trained for this mission.

Cynthia Caron, president and founder, states “Over 2,000 people go missing in the United States every day and many of those are college students. Unfortunately, of those missing, many are located deceased and in a situation that had they been with a friend they may have arrived home safely.” A strong number are young males. She further adds, ” We believe the majority may not have become a missing person statistic had they not ventured back home or to their dorms alone. Our goal is to bring awareness, along with educational materials, to remind students to always stay with friends, especially if a venue they are frequenting involves alcohol as too many of our brilliant young lives have been lost forever and in what we believe, unneccesarily and avoidable.” According to the www.dontleavefriends.com site, this also includes other evening venues in which no alcohol is consumed such as concerts and large group gatherings.

According to Mary Vitt, VP at LostNMissing, “Our message is the same, “you came together, you leave together.” Our goal is to implement our program in all New England Universities and Colleges by 2015 so that other states may follow suit.” explains Vitt.

Non-profit finalists from each state were selected from a pool of nearly 1,000 nominations by an independent panel of judges, featuring including star of “The Vampire Diaries” and non-profit founder Ian Somerhalder, Matt Petronzio, assistant features editor covering social good for Mashable.com, Huffington Post columnist Lisa M. Dietlin and Sam Davidson, president of Cool People Care.

“A desire to do more for a favorite nonprofit can often be hindered by a lack of time to volunteer or financial means to make a donation,” said Susan Dewhirst, goodness programs manager at Tom’s of Maine. “50 States for Good makes it easy for anyone to have an impact and directly help organizations that are bringing goodness to communities in a variety of creative and inspiring ways.”

For several decades, Tom’s of Maine has donated 10% of its profits back to the community and encourages employees to use 5% (12 days) of paid time off to volunteer every year. For more information visit tomsofmaine.com.
