Katie McQuaid's Scene in Manchester: Free Ray Brewer; No, forget I said that
"I think it's great that someone would take the time to do this and hopefully have some fun with it. I wonder often how I get myself into some of these situations, but it's nice to know there are people out there looking out for me," he wrote.
There was the time Brewer did a live shot at Weirs Beach during Bike Week. "... just as I go live a guy rides his motorcycle behind totally nude ... which is why I don't do live shots from Weirs Beach anymore."
"I do think I'm being stalked by the street sweeper guy in Manchester," he wrote. "No matter where we happen to be, if we're doing a live shot in the city, he seems to find me right when my shot goes live and I'm trying to hear people talking in my ear."
I also feel guilty for thinking his hair was fake.
It's not! Brewer credits lots of product and his hair stylist Joy Senecal of Silk Day Spa for keeping his hair in place, even during Winter Storm Apocalypse. Serendipitously, Senecal is my hair stylist too, and she confirms the hair is legit.
Parents of school-age children know this week is February school vacation week. Those of us not lucky enough to be headed to sunny locales or organized enough to pre-arrange for a week of vacation camp are left scrambling for fun things to do to keep sanity in the house and kids off the iPad.
A nice woman who answered the phone at the office (she asked not to be identified) said the office has been planning Winterfest activities for about 30 years. The most popular activity, she said, is swimming available each morning this week at the Southern New Hampshire University pool from 9:15 to 10:45 a.m. The swimming is free, but limited to 75 pass holders per day. Passes must be picked up the day before you plan to swim at the Office of Youth Services in The Chase Building, 1045 Elm St., Suite 204. The office is open from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The office's number is 624-6470, But don't bother calling to reserve a pass. It's not allowed.
