“Thumbs down to Bark! Bark!

Howl! Bark! Howl! Bark! Bark! Howwwwwwl!! Coming from the Bush Hill Road area for hours and hours in the middle of the night on a weekday! Bring your dog/responsibility inside! I’m 33 weeks pregnant and need to leave my TV on all night just to be able to drown out the noise and get some sleep. I also have to leave a radio on all night for my own 2 dogs so they don’t hear the barking and get rowdy themselves! If I knew exactly what house the ignorance was coming from, I’d send them my electric bill to pay!!”

“Thumbs down to the NH flag football league for having picture day on Mother’s Day. When you have several kids with games at different times and they need to be there an hour ahead, some mothers spent four hours at the football field. It’s just unfair, it makes you want to go home and cry, not the Mother’s Day I’d want to have.”

“Thumbs down to those who talk about assault clips. Can you tell me the definition of assault clips? Cause I cannot seem to find it anywhere. Do you mean a high capacity magazine? For everyone’s sake who reads this please, please don’t sound uneducated like the Brady Campaign. Here are the unknown facts for you. Alcohol related deaths annually 79,000 gun related deaths 30,000. By the numbers maybe the prohibition should be re- instated. You might want to let the Brady’s in on these facts so they can fix their web page.”

“Thumbs up to those who reach a level of financial success where they can and do give back to their Schools and Communities. However, those who self-promote that they did, filed for bankruptcy just a few years ago and then turned around and bought a house are not included in that group.”
