The Reason for my gratitude...


On my desk is a lamp. The lamp is shaped like the leg of a beautiful woman in fish net stocking, wearing a black high-heel-pump. This replica from a Christmas Story was a gift from my Dad. It is a gift I cherish! Everyday when I walk in my office it makes me smile. I think of him and the movie and I get a happy little grin.

It wasn't an expensive gift, in fact some people look at it and think it a little weird, but I don't care...it makes me smile!

Everybody is different, we…

19,479 days and counting



As I approach my 19,480th day, I am struck by the speed at which life proceeds. I have fond memories of my childhood, and carefree days in the sun. I remember my first bike, guitar, girlfriend, and broken heart. I remember with excitement, meeting my wife, our wedding day, the birth of our children, and days at the camp...I keep these memories in my vault, they are mine to enjoy for as long as my memory holds out.

The last several months have been a very busy time. My daughter, my baby... left to begin her career in…

Impatient for Spring


As March is almost becoming April...we are left to wonder when the temperatures will begin to reflect spring...I'm not saying that winter isn't beautiful, or that our friends, who are still on the slopes, shouldn't be skiing. I am however hopeful, that the yard in front of Belknap Subaru(grass...remember grass?), be visible soon. We have had a real winter in New Hampshire. It hasn't been blizzard of…

Embrace the Winter

Thursday, 06 February, 2014 by Colin McKenna

The winter in New Hampshire is no time to be hibernating in your home just because it is cold outside. Get up, get out, and try something new. There is no excuse for winter boredom in New Hampshire there is simply to many great things to do.

As an undergraduate student at Plymouth State University I have observed a trend on the campus. As soon as the temperatures drop the student population on campus starts to look smaller and smaller. Just the other day we had a snow day that…

The Season of Giving...


It isn't everyday that you can buy a product you need and want, and at the same exact time do something good for a cause you support. Subaru's Share the Love event takes place at a time of year when all of us are focused on being Thankful, and giving.

As a Subaru dealership we are a business...but every business is comprised of the people who work here...it is Beth, and…

Why I'm Thankful...


I wasn't available for the first Thanksgiving...but the message of the first celebration of the Holiday, was so powerful, that George Washington, and Abraham Lincoln, decided that it was a tradition worth keeping.

Taking time for reflection, and expression, of those things that have been blessings in our lives, is a truly worthy endeavor. As for me, it is a holiday, that I find one of the most satisfying. One need not purchase…

Oh no ...it's that time of year...


No nothing to do with the holidays, although they are just around the corner. No, nothing about frozen precipitation falling from the sky, even though that will ptobably happen before too much time passes. And no, it's not about buying, or selling or servicing your car, even though we extend an open invitation to do any or all of the above.

Nope... it's flu season. I just wanted to offer a gentle reminder…

The Seasons Change



As September draws to a close, we are physically reminded that something wonderful is happening . The changing color of the leaves is the first hint that 2014 is just around the corner. In New England we are visited by leaf peepers from around the world. They come to see the greatest show on earth...our landscape changes from  beautiful shades of green to a pallet of colors unrivaled by any artist.  It is a subtle…

Reflections of September 11th...


Twelve years have passed since that horrible day...though the sad events of that day will forever be etched upon my memory, the weather that day was beautiful...not a cloud in the sky.

I was working for a group of radio stations in Manchester. I had an appointment that morning to meet with a  new client in Nashua. I arrived at the restaurant that the client and I had agreed to meet at, and I waited for him to arrive. After waiting thirty minutes or so, it was apparent that the client had either forgotten, or blown off the…

Do Great Deeds


Those of you who have known me for a time, have often heard me offer this parting admonition...go forth, do great deeds, slay dragons! This instruction is usually met with a smile, a wry chuckle or sometimes a puzzled look.

To some it may be taken as humor, or a corny way to say good bye, but I offer it sincerely, and with a purpose. I have been told many times that if you…
