Are you able to explain to me just what the largest snake is, my brother thinks it is really a boa constrictor.

Well that wasn't very nice of the athorities. I understand the concern but still. I live in New Brunswick, right across the border and we have koi fish in just about every Asian restaurant, heck my wife and I went to an Indian restaurant for our anniversary and they had a big tank with Koi in it.

That bureaucracy for you! The rules exist to cover the few 'dangerous' situations- but they need to realise there are situations where they do not apply!

Of Koi Carp and Big Government... A delightful story - of a tank of fish in a restaurant posing a serious threat to an American Eco-System. ......

Effing bureaucracts. They deserve snakeheads instead of goldfish.

sos.nh.govTo yankeewombat: [As I look at the "preview" function, I see that Wordpress is messing up the links by putting part of them ahead of the comment. Strange glitch. I'll try to get that fixed--in the meantime, please bear with it. I just tried to edit the glitch out of my comment, but it didn't work. Wow, that's quite a stubborn glitch.] The CNN maps are not detailed enough. here is a more detailed breakdown, by counties and by wards within each county. It makes tedious reading, but it is very clear that, with few exceptions, the more rural parts of the state were for Bush and the southern cities for Kerry. Other factors were at play, as well. The southeast county that went Republican (Rockingham), only did so because of a strong Bush vote in the more rural parts of the county. Nashua, the most Massachusetts-influenced city of all, was strongly Kerry. Manchester slightly in favor of Bush; it's much less populated by Massachusetts exiles than Nashua is. In many other parts of the state the southern cities (that's where all the "cities" are, pretty much) went for Kerry. Most of those cities also are near universities, which contain a lot of people "from away." I seem to recall that in NH university students are allowed to vote there as though they live there.

cnn.comI grew up in Langdon NH, POP 400, and it was as rock ribbed Republican as the fields we farmed. If you look at the county by county maps of the 2004 elections you will see it is the remote rural part of the state that voted Democratic and the south east - full of those city folks escaping Taxachusetts - that voted Republican. I live in Perth western Australia now and some of you saying that it was the newcomers who brought their voting habits may know things I don't. Still, it looks to me that the city folks are voting R and the country folks D. j The state by state county maps can be accessed right under the national map at this page. This is just for president and may be misleading, and the trend to Democratic is is there when you look at the 2000 presidential map.

Good God, they were in a tank, indoors for pete's sake. Are they unaware in Maine that in other parts of the country where there's great green influence (my California, unfortunately) people have Koi in OUTDOOR ponds!! You don't even need careless teenagers when a butterfingered (or taloned) Heron would do. (Yes, I actually know someone who saw a Heron swoop down and swipe his Koi, and they ain't cheap. Also why it's unlikely that Tatters fears would come true). Sheesh.

AVI: Thanks for the directions. Maybe I'll try that this summer. What we've actually done a couple of times is get off at exit 1 and then head to the north side of 95, working our way up Route 108 to Dover, then on into Maine on Route 4, staying on 4 all the way up to Portland (stopping for ice cream at Shain's in Sanford, of course). It's a pretty drive much of the time.
