To reach the border community of Chartierville, take scenic Route 257 South. Prior to its founding in 1870 by colonists from Saint-Hyacinthe, gold-seekers flocked to the area. This patch of land, 139 km square and 505 metres in altitude, is one of the highest regions in Quebec – the ‘El Dorado’ of the Eastern Townships still glitters with the natural, wild riches of the surrounding countryside – and its famed optical phenomenon, the “Magnetic Hill.” In the orange glow of sunset, you may catch a glimpse of the region’s many deer or the occasional majestic moose.
Bonjour,

Sweeeeet....looks like you had a French/Mex dining experience. I love it....

Whizzer

Fwiw

Dixville Notch has gained international media attention as the first community to vote in the presidential primary season (since New Hampshire's primary is required by state law to be scheduled earlier than any competitor). Dixville Notch also votes at midnight in the general presidential election in November, although this usually attracts less press attention than primary voting.Although most New Hampshire polling stations open around sunrise and close in the early evening, Dixville Notch takes advantage of a state law that allows a precinct to close if all registered voters in that precinct have cast ballots. Consequently, all registered voters in Dixville Notch gather and are counted before the balloting takes place. The "Ballot Room" of the Balsams Hotel resort serves as the polling place; this room features separate voting booths for each citizen. The town residents also vote each cycle at a town meeting whether or not they will continue the tradition.

I'm as native to NH as you can get...not that it matters. I was simply filling in the blanks for people that might have wondered about the significance of the tag. Pretty good NH history, I think.

You're just jealous cuz you're from Maine.

lol...just goofing with you because I get so sick of all the silly news reports from up there every election day.

Lived in Maine almost 3 years now. First 37 were in NH. Took me that long to figure out how much further ahead Maine was in most things.

Good work MZ.

Do you mind telling us how/where you posted? My brother lives in Pittsburg and tells me there is no cell service, and I'll bet there are no hotspots either.
