Looked up The Old Man of the Mountain cause it sounded cool.
Here's an excerpt from wikipeadea about its collapse:

Collapse
Freezing and thawing opened fissures in the Old Man's "forehead". By the 1920s, the crack was wide enough to be mended with chains, and in 1957 the state legislature passed a $25,000 appropriation for a more elaborate weatherproofing, using 20 tons of fast-drying cement, plastic covering, and steel rods and turnbuckles, plus a concrete gutter to divert runoff from above. A team from the state highway and park divisions maintained the patchwork each summer.[5]

Nevertheless, the formation collapsed to the ground between midnight and 2 a.m., May 3, 2003.[2] Dismay over the collapse was so great that people left flowers at the base of the cliffs in tribute.

It was really a heartbreaking event. I can't think of an equivalent elsewhere because it was a natural formation as opposed to man-made, but it was a weird sense of mourning when it happened.

I grew up in NH and live in RI now.

Most of what needed to be said has been said. NH is great if you need elbow room and a general sense of freedom.

The only reason Wifey and I bought a house in RI is because of our jobs, I would move back to NH in a heartbeat if I could find parallel employment. The area in RI I live has a significantly more New Hampshire-y feel to it than the rest of the state.

Live free or die.

Starting to think maybe it wasn't autocorrect after all and some one with magical admin abilities has been changing it haha!
