    buy a house. The property taxes in NH are off the wall, and unless you're making like six figures, you won't pay much if anything in MA income taxes (if you rent in MA, you can write off a goodly part of your rent as if you owned, btw, I lived there for years as a renter). Live in MA, work in NH. Best of both worlds. You didn't hear me say that.

        still lives in Chelmsford. Back when my great grandmother was alive, (she died in 1986) she would take every Wednesday afternoon off and she and her sister Peggy would drive down 495 from Chelmsford to Bolton to visit their great Aunt. Every. Single. Week.

        But yeah, I loved the rent credit, but when I got laid off and did not have access to UI (because I worked for an exempt non-profit) I moved to Maine. I couldn't afford the Mandate.

            on the hockey forum I hang out on -- it's the home of our teams AHL affiliate, the Worcester Sharks. :-)

              was at that game (second row, right by the Penalty Box) and they beat us and they played really dirty. I have never seen so much hooking in my life and there was a fight about 6 minutes into the first period, the first of THREE.

            I was born in Wistah county) or Woostah if you're from Worcester.

            Also: Dahchestah, Roxb'ry, "Jamaica Plains" (it's "Plain" but no one calls it that, plus it's normally just "JP"), Boylstn, Hahvid, Framingim, oh, I could go on and on, but one thing: Boston is pronounced "Boston" I don't care how they say it in the movies. If anything, "Bostin". NEVER "Baahston".

            "Cholmondeley" pronounced (naturally, so they say) as "Chumley".

            sin and love and fear are just sounds that people who never sinned nor loved nor feared have for what they never had and cannot have until they forget the words

      at least for my clients it is as they typically only have part-time jobs or none at all. And this is coming from someone who likes NH as it is where I lived for the first 21 years of my life.
