Hi! My name is Brian. I live in Belfast, Maine, in the northeastern United States.
I live near the coast, on beautiful Penobscot Bay.
Cara and I have now been married for 7 years, and I love her more than ever. We recently had a new deck built onto the house with a sliding glass door put in which we are very much enjoying.
Seth is working at Sugarbush Ski Resort in Vermont. He is doing really well and has recently developed a fondness for photography and reading.
Cara is very happy with her job at Mount View Junior High. She teaches seventh grade language arts.
I teach 8th grade math at Searsport District Middle School. I have officially retired from coaching and, so far, I don't miss it too much.
I am very pleased to announce the publication of my newest book, Boston Red Sox Managers. This book profiles all the Red Sox managers, from 1901 to the present. Included are Joe Cronin, who managed for 13 seasons, and Rudy York, who managed for one game. It includes the very first manager, Jimmy Collins, and the present manager, Terry Francona. And it includes all the rest, 44 managers in all.
This book is actually a part of a much larger book I am writing profiling all the Major League baseball managers, from the 1870s to the present. My original hope was to have the larger book finished before Spring Training, 2009, but I quickly saw that that was unlikely to happen, so I have decided to publish shorter books, categorized by teams, while I work to finish the larger book. The Red Sox, the team I have followed passionately since I was a boy, was the logical choice to start.
Boston Red Sox Managers by Brian Merrill is available exclusively on Amazon.com at a price of $9.95 per copy.
In August, I published my second book. From George W. to George W. The Presidents and their Cabinets is available exclusively on Amazon.com. The book provides a mini-biography of every Cabinet member from George Washington to George W. Bush.
In 2006, I published a book called On This Date: A Day-By-Day Look at Historical Events. If you are interested in a copy, follow the link. It is also available at amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com, as well as a few other web sites.
We just lost our 13 year old dog named Washington. She was a German Shephard/Golden Retriever/Wolf mix, weighing in at about 90 pounds in her prime. She was extremely friendly. Have you ever heard the expression "beware of friendly dog"? That was Washington!! We have a cat named Mickey. We also have a miniature pinscher named Harry. He is three years old and is quite a character.
