The Insiders: Do a little signing and catch a flick at the library

Saturday, April 18, 2015

If there’s one thing that just doesn’t translate well in our writing, it’s got to be our singing ability. When it comes to belting out the latest and greatest tunes, we’re somewhere on the scale between bad and average. Our true bread and butter really lies in movie tunes. And if you can say the same, then you might want to carve out a little time to make your way …

The Insiders: Don’t let the outdoors hit you on the way out this afternoon. But seriously, get outdoors today

Saturday, April 18, 2015

They always say, if you give a man a fish, you’ll feed him for a day; but teach a man to fish and he’ll come home with a million bug bites and a lobster-red sunburn and maybe a fish or two, if he’s lucky. Isn’t that how it goes? Either way, we’re hungry. …

The Insiders: It’s not the weekend yet, but you can still avoid work by attending an enlightening book discussion

Thursday, April 16, 2015

We know how you feel on Thursday. The weekend is so close, and with it the promise of carting your kids around and having to entertain them all afternoon and finally doing the laundry and dishes and yard work and . . . wait, why were we so anxious for the weekend to …

The Insiders: Go out and create something for that special someone

Thursday, February 12, 2015

In case you forgot, Valentine’s Day is just a couple of sunsets away. The clock is ticking for that perfect gift. Sure you can buy a card, flowers and chocolate, go out to a nice dinner and maybe take in a movie. But since this holiday is all …

The Insiders: There’s a laundry list of reasons to catch this discussion at Kimball-Jenkins

Tuesday, February 10, 2015

We’ve been trying for years to make laundry a more exciting and interesting venture, but we’ve mostly just ended up hot and dizzy (confession: dryer “rides” aren’t a great idea). But the people at the Kimball-Jenkins Estate have accomplished that difficult feat . Tonight’s installment of Wednesday Wisdom …

The Insiders: Clear off the yellow brick road, then take it to the Concord Public Library

Saturday, February 7, 2015

Today seems like a good day to follow the yellow brick road. Assuming, of course, that you’ve snow-blowed and shoveled and sanded the yellow brick road. Once it’s clear, though, we’d take it all the way down to the Concord Public Library for today’s Wizard of Oz sing-along …

The Insiders: This column is words to your eyes, but the outcome might be music to your ears

Friday, February 6, 2015

We want to say this column is music to your ears, but until technology is developed that plays melodious notes while you read our words, that’s not really true. But it can be music to your eyes, because we’re about to tell you about a ton of musical …

The Insiders: Nominate someone fascinating for Concord On Air

Thursday, February 5, 2015

Do you know someone who is, shall we say, fascinating? Do they live in Concord? And will they actually be able to function like a normal human being when put in front of a camera for a live television spot? Well, assuming you answered yes to at least …

The Insiders: We’re pretty much bugging out over this educational evening at St. Paul’s

Tuesday, February 3, 2015

After approximately a bajillion inches of snow in less than a week, which no doubt required countless hours of shoveling and shouting profanely (can one shovel profanely?) at your house as it did at the Insider manse, the last thing you probably want to think about is being …

The Insiders: Do your running on Super Bowl Sunday sans helmet with NHTI

Saturday, January 31, 2015

The big day is finally here, everyone. It’s Super Bowl Sunday, when two weeks of blah blah blahing about football is replaced with actual football. (We did a quick Google search and discovered that this column is the only story in an American newspaper not to discuss deflated …

The Insiders: Celebrate Flashback Friday with Beethoven at the Music School

Thursday, January 29, 2015

Just like those Folgers coffee commercials (remember when those were a thing??!!), we’ve secretly replaced the “B” in #FBF (flashback Friday) with Beethoven this evening. That’s about as flashbacky as you can get! Pianist Gregg Pauley is presenting the fifth of nine concerts in his Beethoven Project tonight …

The Insiders: Dance like nobody’s watching, even though other people at Let’s Dance will be

Tuesday, January 27, 2015

Our knowledge of the dancing world is admittedly limited, and not just because we have two left feet (between the two of us, we mean). We hear things like Merengue and Paso Doble and think one of them is a pie and the other is movie villain. Turns …

The Insiders: Come for the science and stay for the, um, science (and the fun!) with The Amazing Nano Brothers

Saturday, January 24, 2015

Nothing gets a party started quite like nanoscale science and technology, amirite? We’re talking molecules and probe microscopy and probably some other kinds of scopys – you know, the kind of stuff that just screams FUN! And you think we’re being sarcastic – we’re actually just describing this …

The Insiders: Go to these events today and we promise not to give you any homework

Saturday, January 24, 2015

We’re going old school today in the most literal sense. Well, maybe not the absolute literal sense – we’re not moving into a tiny schoolhouse and slapping you across the knuckles with a ruler. But we’re throwing it back to the days when you used to review what …

The Insiders: We’ve got three words for you, mac and cheese

Friday, January 23, 2015

There’s a lot you can do with macaroni and cheese. In addition to using just about any kind of cheese imaginable, you can add bacon, ham or pulled pork. You can even throw in some veggies if you’re into that kind of thing. And don’t forget to check …
