Can someone tell me why there are so many swamps with standing water around town? Is there a purpose? It seems to me with a large population of mosquitoes and ticks the standing water would add to this
epidemic and not in anyway help it....
Are you proposing we drain the swamps? 8 (2 hours ago)Jessica McCormack:

You see it rains, and that rain fills in these things called rivers or ponds or sometimes even swamps. And those swamps and rivers and ponds are necessary to sustaining life in humans, animals, and reptiles ...

Hi friends and neighbors. Quick question: where, in our area, can I buy really fresh seafood (esp. shrimp and crab meat) for cooking? Is there someplace nearby or should I just head to the coast? Thanks!

My dog gets scared by thunder/fireworks. If there's fireworks, I just close the blinds, turn up the tv and talk to him. I absolutely love my dog, he is my best bud, but there is no reason that the whole town shouldn't be able to do fireworks on/around 4th of July just because someone else might have a dog that doesn't do well with them. As a pet owner, you should know that around the 4th there will be fireworks, and keep them inside/safe. 18 (1 day ago)Lisa Coll:
A lot of people here in Merrimack are hard working people making a living so that they can come home and live in the short span of a weekend. Summertime-cookouts, family, friends, fireworks, lighter later at night, warm temps to enjoy and freedom to do it. With all the junk going on in the 🌎 do we really need to infest our neighborhoods with such junk. I love animals and all that but you know my pets and children are all grown and gone now and they not only survived fireworks and thunderstorms and loud trucks, mc etc but embrace it all as adults now. Lol ok the pets didn't grow up and move out but they didn't pass on because of fear of loud noises...you get the point. Chill, pick your battles wisely and why not use the forum to encourage, lift up and help one another... 17 (1 day ago)Mark Paulhamus:

Omg, it's not a scam. It IS one of the electric company supply companies "employees". It's the same thing as the postcards you get in the mail. Basically, Eversource supplies the power lines, etc into your home, but you can purchase the actual electricity from any company. Most of the companies are set up as MLM's, hence the sales people knocking on doors. (1 hour ago)
Good evening! My name is Jocelyn and I will be offering private swim lessons this summer! I have flexible hours and affordable rates.
