Lori (Chauvette) Ingham (17 W. High St., Franklin, NH 03235; firstname.lastname@example.org) writes: "Hi, everyone! I'm back! A lot has happened since I last wrote. First off, hubby and I bought a house in Franklin in September 2007. It's an older house that we got a great deal on. It's got its issues (what 100-year-old house doesn't?), but we've been working hard to make it a home for us. The bad news is that I was laid off from the Citizen of Laconia in March. Right now, the newspaper business is not doing well against the "new media." I shouldn't have been as surprised as I was when it happened, but it's given me some time to break into the new media myself (unpaid right now) by starting up a blog: http://conchrist.blogspot.com. I'm focusing more on politics and entertainment right now, as well as odd news items that come across my radar. I'm also working on my master's degree at Plymouth State University in English Education. So that's my life. How's yours?"
