New Hampshire Newbie

Holly, the author at "New Hampshire Newbie" is a real New Hampshire newbie.

Holly apparently is not a native of New Hampshire, and possibly not even a New Englander based on how she talks about the weather here.

She began her blog in January of this year. She is a VISTA working at the Red Cross as a grant writer and case worker, and lives in Hopkinton. Her dog Molly Brown is a cutie.

If you have a minute, take a quick visit and leave a comment. You might just make her day.


A New Hampshire Yankee in the Old Dominion

Tris Wykes of "A New Hampshire Yankee in the Old Dominion," describes his blog as "A rambling account of my life and travels and the people, places and events that intersect with them."

Although a brand spanking NEW blog, this one certain deserves more exploration. Tris Wykes started the blog because he is a relief worker who will be in New Orleans for a bit and wants to communicate with family and friends in this way.

For those of you who have been wondering about the "truth" of the lingering effects of Hurricane Katrina on New Orlean's, this is a great place to start. Tris' view of the city is probably closer to the truth than what we see in the news.

Lets hope Tris decides to keep on blogging, even after he returns home.

Patrick's Life in New Hampshire

Patrick [I haven't figured out his last name yet] of "Patrick's Life in New Hampshire," is originally from the Netherlands, but he lives in New Hampshire with his wife Sue.

He blogs to keep his family informed about his life and interests. Although written in Dutch, you can use the handy (and free) online translator, Altavista's "Babel Fish".

Just select Dutch to English in the drop down box and plug in Patrick's blog URL to see an automatic translation. The translated wording is a bit rough and awkward, which only makes reading his articles more interesting.

This is an intriguing blog, as it gives you a wonderful insight into how foreign-born residents see our state, and our culture. A definite thumbs up.


Original Faith: Becoming Our Truer Nature

Paul Martin is the New Hampshire blogger on Original Faith where he invites visitors to participate in thoughtful discussion on religious and spiritual matters. Paul's biography succinctly details his religious and educational background.

Original Faith comes with its own "what people are saying" section. This blog appears to be partially a promotion for his book, also called
"Original Faith," that is going to be available for purchase soon.

His topics are thought-provoking, to say the least. He welcomes comments, "the principle is simple: respect the person, even when you
disagree with what they have to say on a particular issue."
