A question!?
« on: January 12, 2005, 05:34:59 pm »

Everybody!

Question:
  Which town/city will you move too when you get to NH?

I was thinking on a town in the Lakes Region, but can't decide on the town.
Where are YOU gonna be? :D

Most likely the Lebanon-Hanover corridor. :)

If I move with my employer, almost definitely the Berlin area. If I hit the lottery, then it will still probably be Coos county, but we'll spend lots of time picking out the right place.  :)

I found out a few days ago that Coos is pronounced "Coh Oss".  Weird!

Just thought I'd share that.  ;)

And you all should know that Haverhill is pronounced "hay-vrill" 2 syllables. Portsmouth is "Ports-muth" not mouth.

And of course, Berlin is BURR-lin, not ber-LIN.

And I'll have to learn a whole new set of English pronunciations of Native American words. I come from the Ouachita mountains, and I know the difference between Ouachita, Washita, Wishita, and Wichita. When I arrived in Germany, I was fluent in "knoddensipper" Deutsch: nod my head and sip my beer, until I could translate the local idiom into the proper "school" German that I'd learned. For this southern boy, I don't imagine it will be a lot different in New England. ;)

We had a bricklayer build our chimney in Arkansas when I was a kid; he was from Maine, and after 40 years in the South, he still referred to something being "ohva yandah". :)

Can you say, Con-to-wok-o-wok (Contoocook)?  No, I have not heard it said that way by the people who live on its shores, but has to be the way the Indians said it.

I have heard that the folks in Berlin have decided to go back to ber-LIN. They changed the pronunciation during one of the World Wars, (I don't know which one) to distance themselves from Berlin, Germany. Any one else know about this?

I won't decide that until it gets closer to moving time, but I'm considering the southwestern part of the state.  All those Porcs in Keene make that a potential destination. ;)  The Lakes and Seacoast Regions are two other areas I'll consider.

Hi jenn
I got a half acre in haverhill---but am eyeing those 300+ acre parcels in landaff and trying to put together a buyers group called the white mountain land cooperative so we can get the bulk discount and bring the land price down to about 500 bucks an acre---at which point Ill by 10-20 acres and sell the house (newly built) in haverhill.
cheers

The authority and responsibility between families, villages and states should be democratic only in the realms that must by necessity be commonly shared.  There is little need for state authority over the village, and precious few things should be the concern of the nation.
