Maggie was a little more than "one of the people" who moved marriage equality through the legislature: She was President of the Senate. We will be safe from attacks on marriage equality, but possibly only four one two-year

The existing Republican will retain the Senate leadership. The split is now 13-11 (instead of 19-5). There's also a recount pending that could possibly change the split to 12-12. In that case, I have no clue how they'd choose the president.

Until very recently, New Hampshire was one of THEE MOST SOLIDLY Republican states in the US, with a strong Libertarian bent. What happened ?!

I was looking to move to New Hampshire the past few years, but the brutal weather of 2011 in upstate New York, finally convinced me to head to warmer climes.

But I still look at New Hampshire real estate on the web, and I recently found a nice house liste don the web that is EXACTLY my type, in New Hampshire.

Unfortunately, the temperature there averages 40 degrees less than here at any given time, and I am NOT giving up the beautiful weather here in Arizona to go back to East Coast 27-foot snowdrifts in September.

Don't be taken in by the low price of the home. Groveton is yet another town whose major employer--the paper mill--has closed. But guess what? Maintaining schools and roads is just as expensive when housing prices are depressed and people are out-of-work. Check out the real estate taxes, which are the major source of funding for services in New Hampshire.(Of course, real estate taxes are somewhat offset by the lack of broad-based income and sales taxes. If you're living off of investments, however, we do have a 5% dividends and interest tax, which puts tax on retirees on-par with other states. Social Security, pensions, IRA's, and 401K's are exempt from dividends and interest tax.) Also check out the cost of heat.

Otherwise, Groveton is a very beautiful town.

I like the house. It's definitely my style, but after experiencing the weather here in southern Arizona for the past 11 months, I can't move that far north again. It averages 40 degrees colder here than it does here in southern Arizona.(And it's COLD here now !:( 60 degrees ! Cold front moved in the other day. sposed to be back up to 80 degrees by wednesday tho.:))

I lived in Albuquerque last year, and I moved to Arizona last December SPECIFICALLY BECAUSE of teh snow adn cold in New Mexico (I thought it would be warmer.:().

It's 71 degrees here now but sposed to go back up to the mid-80's on Wednesday.

One thing I must say I AM surprised adn disappointed about the southwest in general, and southwestern cities in particular is that there are NO houes anywhere like on teh East Coast. Specifically Victorians, Colonials, Duct Colonials, etc. europeans have been here as long as on the East Coast, so I'm very surpries and disappointed that you can't buy a house liek that here. Sears Roebuck DID have mail-order houses in the 19th century adn 20th century, so I can't see why nobody built houses liek that here.

Having said that, I live in a VERY nice house here in Coolidge, in a nice development. It's about 50 miles sout of Phoenix, and 65 miles north of Tucson.

(I had to drive 91 miles one way to go to church this past Sunday and the Communion Beer wasn't even as cold as it should have been.:()

(On the other hand, I think my blond hair is now longer than it has ever been in my life.:)(roughly 20" or more.))
