  • Twas the Night Before Christmas

     Twas the night before Christmas,

    He lived all alone,

    In a one bedroom house made of 

    Plaster and stone.

    I had come down the chimney

    With presents to give,

    And to see just who

    In this home did live,

    I looked all about, 

    A strange sight I did see, 

    No tinsel, No presents, 

    Not even a tree,

    No stocking by the mantle,

    Just boots filled with sand,

    On the wall hung pictures

    Off far distant lands.

  • Mount Washington has the right sign

     What is one thing most politicians will talk about in their campaigns?

    Beautification.

    What is the one thing that most often gets ignored once that politician is elected to office?

    Beautification.

    While we are not sure all the language in the Mount Washington proposal to ramp up expectations for signage is good, we applaud the effort.
