2012 Patriots Schedule

As a Baltimore Ravens fan, it is still painful to recall the last-minute of the most recent AFC Championship Game. A perfectly thrown touchdown pass was dropped by Lee Evans and then a missed field goal by Billy Cundiff. Is it just a coincidence that both players are not on this year's Ravens' Roster?

But we all know that life moves on and the 2012 NFL season kicks off next Wednesday night (moved from its traditional Thursday night start so as not to draw viewers away from President Obama and the Democratic Convention. My money would have been on the NFL game having higher ratings!).

Send me an e-mail and I would be happy to drop a magnetic schedule in the mail. And please take note of where the Patriots travel to on September 23rd!

    Hi, was wondering if you still have some of these from last year and if you made any from this season? I collect them with my grandchildren, and it would be awesome to add some to our collections! We look forward to your reply. Sincerely, Hedin family, 3 Murray road, Framingham, ma 01701 thank you!

    Kezar Lake Opportunities

    Although I would never use the word "robust" (strong and healthy) to describe this year's local housing market, there has been an uptick in activity, especially when measured against the past four-five years. Most of Kezar Realty's transactions this year have been with year-round residents. Based on their long absence from the marketplace, I consider that alone to be a positive sign. Buyers sense that prices are no longer dropping and they have confidence that their jobs won't be disappearing in the near future. Sellers might not be happy that prices are not returning to previous levels but they should be encouraged that people are once again interested--at a certain price!

    Here are two Kezar Lake properties that should attract interest from buyers who have always wanted their own little camp on the lake!

    8 North Lower Bay Road, Lovell A three-bedroom, one bath seasonal home just steps from the shore on a 1/2 acre lot. A sandy beach, 100 feet of frontage and mountain views to the south and west makes for a great family camp. Plus a great rental history. MLS # 995864. $295,000! Call 207-925-1500 or click here for more detailed information and to see the virtual tour.

    66 Whidden Road, Stow Here is a cozy log cabin that provides an open view of Kezar Lake's Lower Bay. The master bedroom is on the second floor with extra sleeping space on the first. A wood stove, cathedral ceilings, skylights, a screened porch and dock! 135 feet of frontage and priced at $374,900! Brand new listing so call for details. Looking forward to seeing you on the Lake!

    Lovell's Busy, Busy Saturday August 18th

    Prior to the 9 am opening of the 37th Annual Arts and Artisans Fair, many volunteers are busy unloading artists' cars as they pull up to the New Suncook School. And throughout the day, many people are working hard to keep things running smoothly at this popular Fair that benefits the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library and has something for everyone. More than 50 artisans will be present and there will be artist demonstrations as well as a Book Sale, homemade refreshments and a raffle where you have a chance to win one of ten artist-donated prizes. Stop by the New Suncook School on Route 5 in Lovell between 9 - 3.

    Later in the afternoon, from 4-7, is the always crowded Chicken BBQ Benefit Dinner held by the Lovell Fire Department. Where else can you get 1/2 chicken, fresh corn, potato salad, cole slaw, roll and dessert for just $8.50? Stop by the Center Lovell Fire House to eat-in or take home! Show your support for the Lovell Volunteer Fire Department!

    And to top off the day, it is Rondi's Birthday and our 28th wedding anniversary!

      Lovell Barn Tour

      Today, most barns in Lovell are not "working" barns. Sure they may hold tractors, tools, equipment and lots of stuff, but chances are strong that the barn was not constructed for that purpose. Purists may question the different use but it is probably the evolving uses of these large structures that have helped to save them from destruction.

      The exteriors of the barns are always fascinating to look at and admire, but it is the interiors that tell the real story. The type of construction, how many levels, what type of animals were stored there and what sort of changes were made over the decades.

      This Sunday, the Lovell Historical Society is providing the opportunity for everyone to satisfy their curiosity as to just what is in that barn that you are always driving by! There will be eight pre-Civil War barns available to visit, examine and admire. A variety of styles and sizes including a former dairy barn with two interior silos and an existing working barn housing pigs and cattle.

      After the tour, participants are invited to attend a cocktail party at the Pleasant Point Inn where there will be entertainment, hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar. Tickets for this event are $20, available at the Historical Society. The Barn Tour is from 1-4 with the Cocktail Party from 4-6. Call 207-925-3234.
