Cough, Sneeze, Sniff! Its Cold, Flu And

Handwashing Season!__________________
By Jessica Sprague

The CDC reports that handwashing education reduces the number

of people who get sick with diarrheal diseases by 31% and
reduces the number of people who get sick with respiratory illnesses (like colds) by 16-21%. Lets start with the basics. Here
are the steps for effective handwashing.

Wet hands with clean, running water and apply soap. Are
your hands having a hard time with continual exposure to hot
water from handwashing? Good news! Current research shows
that the temperature of the water isnt important. Are your hands
drying out from continual soap use? Not so good news! You
should always use soap when washing your hands. Water and
soap remove more soil (any type of dirt or grease) and microbes
from your hands than just water alone. If your hands are suffering, experiment with different brands that contain moisturizer.
Dont skip the soap!

Scrub away! Lather the soap for at least 20 seconds. This
may feel like an eternity when you first try it, but focus on not
only rubbing your palms together, but also scrubbing the back of

Anyone who is familiar with the Food Safety folks at UNH

Cooperative Extension knows that we love to talk about handwashing. Well, there is good reason for that! It is one of the most
important things we can all do to reduce the risk of spreading
foodborne illness. It is also one of the key things we can do to
avoid getting sick and spreading germs. This time of year its
impossible to walk down the grocery aisle without hearing a
sneeze or two. Good luck picking your kid up from school without hearing a symphony of sniffles. And we all have that friend
who insists on going to work with the flu, despite plenty of advice
to the contrary.

When I was at an auto repair

owner knew anyone who did
rust repair on vehicles. He
handed me a business card
someone had dropped off and
said, I know nothing about his
work, but try this guy. I had
already talked to many people
who do rust repair, and they
were all way more than I could
spend. The person on the card,
Paul B. of Campton, (if you
want to know what the 'B' is,
just ask me) quoted me a price
significantly lower than all the
others, a price I could actually
almost afford. He explained
that he worked from his house
and had no overhead, so thats
how he could keep his price so
low (said the spider to the fly). I
am sure you know the rest, but I
will save it for next time. (To be

Happenings On The Farm - Its Delightful at D Acres________________________________________________

The harvest is in, the snow is

imminent, and the farm is welcoming a wind down of a fantastic growing season to plan and
create the 2016 programming.
An abundant harvest has been
processed and root cellared for
the upcoming community
events, guests and residents
through May of next year. Now
that the growing season has
ended, the focus on final renovations at the Red House, including a new roof and insulation,
has commenced. The artistic
side of D Acres will be brought
to the forefront through the winter months, forming spoons and
bowls in the wood shop. D Acres
focus will now move to future
planning to meet the needs of
the community. Winter allows
for reflection and evaluation of
all D Acres many activities.

Upcoming youth focused workshops at D Acres are led by Sara

Hage and Stacey Lucas. On
Black Friday, November 27th,
instead of shopping, come to D
Acres from 1-3 pm to craft gifts
with an all ages workshop hosted by Sara Hage. Using natural
materials and batik fabric, participants will make ornaments,
wreaths and other creative items
for gift giving this holiday season. On December 21st, join D
Acres for a day of Solstice celebrations, including Solstice
ornaments for our woodland
friends, dream weavers, a presentation about the traditional
meanings of the solstice, delicious seasonal foods, including
the traditional comfort foods of
stew and macaroni and cheese
(for the kids of course!) and a
wonderful bonfire with music,
story telling and refreshments.
On November 29th and
December 27th from 1-3 pm the
Get Painty Workshop will be
happening with Stacey Lucas
leading the way from Fig Tree
Art Gallery in Ashland. All of
advanced registration, with a
suggested donation of $5 - $10
per participant. These and other
youth based programming are
made possible through a grant
from the NH Charitable
Foundation for building farmbased eco-literacy with handson youth education programming.

D Acres values the sense of

community that regular monthly
food events provide. Each one
offers the general public an
opportunity to experience fellowship and food. The first
Sunday Farm Feast Breakfast on
December 6 from 10 to 1 pm
highlights the most important
meal of the day with local ingredients. In December, work by
artist Chris Leston will be on
display. Following the meal, at 1
pm there will be an opportunity
to take a tour. The Second

provides an opportunity to

in addition, we provide a family

wakeup call this past Veterans

More than 33,000 New

Hampshire men served in the
Civil War, almost 10% of the
states population at the time.

More than 30 won the

Congressional Medal of Honor
for their courage. Almost 5,000
never came home, and thousands more were wounded.

They fought at Cold Harbor,

Chancellorsville, Gettysburg
and Fort Sumter. They fought to
preserve the Union, and to end
slavery. The flags they carried
and brought home were more
than symbols; they marked the
front line of battle and guided
men amid the chaos and smoke
of war. The bullets and the
blood of battle still mark the

conservation plan for the flags,
wishing to keep the originals on
view for the thousands of visitors who come to the building
each year.

There is also an effort to preserve the room and its appearance for the upcoming 200th
anniversary of the State House
in 2019.

While all agree on the value of

these emblems of service, decisions about how to care for this
iconic room and assure the
preservation of its flags have
yet again been delayed.
For the soldiers who sacrificed
and died for our nation, and for
the generations of men and
women who have helped defend
our liberty one thing is clear:
we can do better.

Adventures in

A Place of Many Uses

When our greenhouse of salvaged windows & doors, second-hand plastic, and wood was
completed last November
(thanks to the generous help of
my parents), we were simply
excited to have a new growing
space. Daydreams of April
greens, long-season tomatoes,
strings of hot peppers, and pungent basil shaped our plans for
this latest addition to our homestead.

And, indeed, such produce has

been a part of the abundant first
season in our greenhouse.
However, the greenhouse has
proven to be useful in so many
more ways.


snow for our all our water.

Voila! Putting buckets of snow
in the greenhouse on a sunny
day greatly assisted the process
- after all, we can only fit one
large pot atop our woodstove.
Then as spring approached, so
did the sugaring season. With
disappointment, we realized
that our sugaring buckets were
not stored as thoroughly out of
the weather as we had presumed. With dirt and grass
frozen to bucket lips, and ice
covering the bottoms, the solar
heat capacity of the greenhouse
was immediately useful. One
sunny day and the ice was gone,
our buckets easily cleaned and
freshen. Sheww.

We did get our April greens,

It started in winter, a time of some late spring turnips, and
year when the ice on the river some early summer carrots and
has us resorting to melting beets. As my summer hot crops

were transplanted in the greenhouse, we were also beginning

to gather materials for the root
cellar project. As I began the
repetitive process of carrying
bag after bag of concrete mix
and mortar mix into the property (3,000 lbs. in total!), our little
shed was not going to be able to
house them all. In fact, it was
dubious if the aged floor would
have even been able to handle
half that weight. Nonetheless,
such materials had to be kept
completely out of any rain. The
answer? The greenhouse. So
tucked neatly between rows of
tomatoes, the construction
materials began to accumulate.
A bucket of tar, foam insulation...cucumbers reached out
for these new climbing surfaces.

Then as the end of the summer

loomed and frosts began to settle on the garden, the greenhouse became a safe haven, its
shelves a curing zone for onions
and winter squash. It also
became our seed-saving workspace - placing seeds such as
lettuce, parsnip, kale, pea, sunflower, and oats in paper bags
to dry while protected from
direct sunlight.

Long and warm as the fall was,

the greenhouse plants eventually succumbed to cold and frost.
With the endless tangle of
cucumber vines and giantesque
tomato plants cleared out of the
beds, there was suddenly a
plethora of space. While some
fall crops remained, there was
plenty of space to comfortably
move about. Mica, finding the
outdoor temperature no longer
suitable for his afternoon naps,
slyly choose a spot in the corner
of the greenhouse. He kept his
paws out of the beds, mostly,
and made a dog bed out of extra

straw that had accumulated in heavy dew. But the greenhouse

Inspiring Words for You!

Dear Friends, I think this song is apprpriate for

reflecting within at this time of year. And ask
ourselves, JUST WHAT HAVE WE DONE??? with
Christmas? So this is Christmas, and what have you
done? another year over, and a new one just begun. And
so this is Christmas, I hope you have fun, the near and
the dear one, the old and the young, A very merry
Christmas, and a happy New Year, lets hope its a good
one without any fear. And so this is Christmas, for weak
and for strong, for rich and the poor ones, the world is
so wrong. And so happy Christmas, for black and for
white, for yellow and red ones, lets stop all the fight. A
very merry Christmas, and a happy New Year, lets hope
its a good one, without any fear. And so this is
Christmas, And what have we done? another year over,
and a new one just begun. And so this is Christmas, I
hope you have fun, the near and the dear one, the old
and the young, A very Merry Christmas, and a happy
New Year, lets hope its a good one, without any fear.
My prayer is that we can start a fresh and make it a
choice to keep the spirit of Christmas around all year
long. Please take time to read the story in the Bible,
LUKE 2...

The Outside Story - by Todd McLeish _____________________________________________________________

exclusively feeding on high
energy (fatty) foods to sustain
flight, birds must also consume
proteins to help rebuild their
digestive tract.

Migration Takes Guts

But the digestive system is

made up of the most metabolically demanding organs in the
body. It uses large quantities of
energy to operate. During
migration, birds can shut down
their digestive systems so the
energy that would have been
used to process food can be
diverted to fuel flight. The
downside is that the birds guts
can begin to atrophy during
migration. When birds stop
along their migratory route or
reach their ultimate destination
a time when they are surely
extremely hungry they are
constrained from feeding for a
day or two until their digestive
system becomes acclimated and
can operate efficiently again.

The answers, according to

University of Rhode Island
ecologist Scott McWilliams,
have everything to do with
digestive physiology. Or, as
McWilliams likes to say,
migration takes guts. Yes,
strong flight muscles and an
innate knowledge of what route
to take are crucial, but it also
takes a digestive system that is
highly flexible and adaptable to This digestive on/off switch

That tells us something about

their ability to flexibly respond
to climate change, said
McWilliams. Plenty of birds
migrate south because they
have too limited a capacity to
respond in this way. But whitethroated sparrows have the
spare capacity to modify their
physiology to deal with substantial environmental change.
He said the birds that live in
places where temperatures
dont change a great deal like
the tropics have not had to
evolve this physiological flexibility, so those species might
have more difficulty adapting to
changing conditions.

As an avid birdwatcher for

more than 30 years, Ive long
been familiar with the big picture of songbird migration. Tiny
instance, fly 1,500 miles from
southern New England to the
Caribbean in a single two- or
three-day flight across open
water with nowhere to land if
they get tired. The even tinier
ruby-throated hummingbirds
cross the Gulf of Mexico in a
similar way. But until recently I
havent spent much time wondering how these little birds do
it. Dont their flight muscles get
tired? How do they replenish
their energy reserves in the air?

throated sparrows, hermit

thrushes and red-eyed vireos,
expands significantly over several days through the production of new and larger cells.
That makes it possible for the
birds to dramatically increase
their food intake so they can
store up extra energy for their
long flights.

The adaptability of a birds gut

capacity may be a deciding factor in different species ability
to cope with climate change. In
McWilliams found that whitethroated sparrows acclimated to
a very cold environment were
able to eat two to four times as
much food as sparrows acclimated to summer temperatures.
The birds were able to accommodate the greater quantity of
food they needed to eat to meet
their energy needs in the cold

and still digest it efficiently.

The recently widened Baron's

Run, one of the most popular
routes at Mittersill, will now
have a total of 55 high-output,
energy-efficient tower guns.
This will enable the Mittersill
Double Chair to operate more
frequently. In the past, the
opening of Mittersill and operation of the double chair were
completely reliant on natural
snow. New snowmaking on the
Sky Line and Ridge Run trails
will give skiers and riders two
snowmaking routes from the
top of the double chair.

during the 2015-2016.

Baron's Run has been widened

and improved to accommodate
giant slalom and super giant
slalom training and racing.
However, its use for training
will be limited; it is expected to
remain open to the public 100
percent of the time during the
2015-2016 season, although
some shared training may take
place. During the 2016-2017
season, training and racing on
Baron's Run will continue to be
limited and will only occur on a
select number of dates.
"We're excited for the ski season to begin," concluded
DeVivo. "These improvements
will add a whole new dimension to the Cannon and
Mittersill experience."

Tech Tips, Talk & Advice For Your Computer

Windows 10 was released on

July 29, 2015, some customers
wonder how windows activation works with Windows 10,
why we do not have to type a
product key to activate
Windows like previouse versions such as Windows Vista
and Windows 7. Here is an article in Windows Secrets by
Susan Bradley that will answer
that question;

Tying the OS license to specific


Windows licensing has always

been murky. Windows 7, for
example, had retail, original
(OEM), and enterprise editions.
In theory, OEM editions were
tied to the hardware they came
on. Retail versions, however,
were "portable"; if, for example, you purchased Win7 separately from the PC, you could

move that copy from machine

to machine as long as you no
longer used the OS on the old
PC. (Most retail versions of
Windows were used for upgrading or for hand-built PCs.)
Usually, you had to reauthorize
your copy of Windows for the
new system, but in most cases
that step was a formality.
Long-term, portability is not
part of the free version of
Windows 10. When you install
Win10, Microsoft's activation
servers create and store a
unique ID based on the old key
plus the hardware in your
machine. The Win10 upgrade
will stay tied to that upgraded
system and your original
Win7/8 key will no longer be
valid. (You can roll back to
Win7, but you're not allowed to
run both your original OS and
Win10, say, in a virtual or dualboot setup.)

A Microsoft spokesperson stated: "After the first year, you

would not be able to move the
installation to a different
device, as the upgrade is specific to your device, not your
license or Windows account.
After that first year, for devices
not upgraded, you would have
to purchase a copy of Windows
10 through the Microsoft Store
or Microsoft retail partners." To
make things even more confusing, if you eventually purchase
a retail edition of the Win10
license, you will be able to
move that copy from one computer to another that version
comes with portability rights.

You can, however, still upgrade

a Win10 system. As with earlier
Windows versions (typically
tied to the Windows Genuine
Advantage program), you'll
need to call Microsoft to reactivate the license if you change
major parts of your computer
after upgrading to Win10. (It's
usually an annoying but not too
painful process.)

Unfortunately, the types of

changes that trigger a reactivation always have been and
still are vague. For example,

adding more memory generally

does not require a reactivation,
but changing the motherboard
would. (In OEM setups, changing to a new motherboard is
allowed only while the PC is
still under warranty.)
