The Insiders: Time to spruce up your garden for our next (incognito) visit

Sunday, July 20, 2014

Sunday is a good day to spend in your garden. And we should know – we’re outside in your garden right now. Just go to the window and, yup, that’s us waving at you. Of course, that’s not really true. We only spend time in your garden when you’re not home. And, lovely as it is, every garden could use … 0

The Insiders: We yell fire truck pull in a crowded newspaper column

Friday, July 18, 2014

All good things must come to an end, readers, so we might as well wrap up today’s column. Just kidding – we barely started it. But we’ll use it to tell you today is the final day of Market Days, and there’s tons of great stuff going on, including the fire truck pull at 10 a.m. (Keith will be giving it a go!), … 0

The Insiders: Take the plunge and check out The River stage at Market Days

Thursday, July 17, 2014

Here’s a quick history lesson for you this morning: Did you know that, as with so many good jams, the old ditty about the little piggy going to market was actually edited so it could better fit into a pop radio format? The original first line told of a little piggy going to Market Days – and we think it’s a perfect day … 0

The Insiders: Let’s all parade downtown to watch the parade

Saturday, May 24, 2014

You could say we’re live-in-the-moment kind of people here at the Insider. That’s why we spend most of our time telling you fun things to do in a few hours. Today, though, you get a little more lead time – that’s what happens when you have a long … 0

The Insiders: Pet some animals and learn how to farm

Friday, May 23, 2014

It’s not every day you get to meet a real life farmer. But today, consider yourself lucky because the New Hampshire Farm Bureau has you covered with the Young Farmers Open House at its headquarters, 295 Sheep Davis Road. Dairy and vegetable farmers will talk about some tricks … 0

The Insiders: Musical performances that may or may not include snakes doing yoga

Thursday, May 22, 2014

Memorial Day weekend officially begins today, which means even if you’re reading this at work, you’re probably already on auto pilot, maybe even more so than usual. We’ve actually been at a barbecue for the last six hours; this column was written by our automated column writing program. … 0

The Insiders: Women and sawing do we need to say more?

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

When the Hurricane of 1938 roared through New Hampshire, it left a trail of devastation in its wake. Well, at least that’s what we’ve heard. Because in case you didn’t know, we weren’t actually born for another 42 years. But luckily, Sarah Shea Smith knows a lot about … 0

The Insiders: It’s time for the Cappies with a capital Cappie

Tuesday, May 20, 2014

Note from the shameless plug department: The following is a shameless plug. This week’s Insider hits newsstands today, and it’d be in your best interest to pick one up. Why? Well, because that’s always the case (shameless mode engaged). But really, because it’s the Cappies issue, our annual … 0

The Insiders: If you’re hearing 80 voices today, you’re doing something right

Saturday, May 17, 2014

If you hear 80 voices regularly, that might be a sign that something strange is going on. Today, though, you can hear 80 voices without the pressure of all of your friends and family telling you to seek help. That’s because the Concord Chorale is celebrating its 45th … 0

The Insiders: Carnival food and sanctioned people crashing sounds like a fun Saturday to us

Friday, May 16, 2014

There will probably be plenty of people crashing into each other at the Concord Kiwanis Fair all weekend long, thanks to dizzying rides – and maybe to unsteady legs after inhaling inhumane portions of carnival grub. But today you can step inside the Everett Arena to see sanctioned … 0

The Insiders: Sorry dudes, this dance party is strictly for the ladies

Friday, May 16, 2014

You would never bring your mom to prom, not unless you were actively looking for a way to ensure a lifetime of harassment from your buddies. Truthfully, your mom probably wouldn’t want to go to prom, anyway – at least not with you. She needs a break from … 0

The Insiders: Play some games and win a prize at Kiwanis Club Spring Fair

Wednesday, May 14, 2014

Aren’t giant stuffed animals just the best? They’re soft, cuddly and can be used as a pillow or passenger in a carpool lane. Who cares that it usually requires spending a ridiculous amount of money to win one that can easily be bought at a local store for … 0

The Insiders: There’s no beating this Egg event at Gibson’s

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

Eggs have had a pretty topsy-turvy ride over the years.. First they were healthy, then they weren’t healthy, now they’re healthy again. For what it’s worth, we’re fans here at the Insider – not enough to recommend going all Rocky Balboa and downing a glass of raw ones, … 0

The Insiders: It’s a nice day, so enjoy it!

Sunday, May 11, 2014

It’s supposed to be a nice day. The weather report (if we can ever believe it) calls for mostly sunny with a high in the mid-70s. We know, it’s hard to believe, but it might be safe to say that spring has officially arrived. Hopefully we didn’t just … 0

The Insiders: Get healthy tips and eat great food

Saturday, May 10, 2014

On most days, walking down the middle of South Main Street would be dangerous and frowned upon. Like they always say, safety first. But today is a little different. That’s because a section of the street will be closed down for Concord Food Co-op’s biggest event of the … 0
