Sorry, real life has kept me away from this blog as well as obligations on the web.
I found a real life Maine blog about Real Estate with helpings of interesting tidbits. This Maine Mama has a definitive point of view on housing in Maine. Go check out her yard sale find, a fun to read site... Maine Housing Bubble
I wonder if this is a problem for people around the world or if we here in the u.s. are being targeted more, it is so annoying to read this garbage!! leave us alone spammers, your spam is annoying and useless, why are you wasting your lives away, with some of your creative writing skills you could actually write blogs and get people to come to you, stop the email mass mailings that is so 2 years ago, get with the program and create blogs where you can elaborate on your story! I am saying this in jest, I can only predict that they will start in on the blogosphere in the very near future.

what's up with that? another overcast day in lovely Maine. I was hoping to hang out by the pool but I guess not! I guess we'll have to go somewhere inside to let the kids run their hearts out. I wish there were more indoor venues for kids in this area.
If I had the money, of if someone out there wants to start a business in Maine, I'm sure any type of play area business for kids would be a hit. When I went down south we stopped at chick-fil-a's and their play areas are great!! Please someone come to Maine and open some of them in this area... there's a real need and would be packed in the winter when kids can't go outside.
I've lived in Maine since 1999. In that short time I've noticed a HUGE difference in Maine.
When I first got here I thought it was the edge of nowhere. Every weekend and sometimes even after work we would race to Portland, walk around the seaport or just go to the mall... we searched high and low looking for something - anything!
"what do people do here?" we would ask everybody we thought had a clue, they would start talking about driving here and there and my husband and I would look at eachother thinking, "there is no way we are driving that much..."
So we would stay home and watch t.v. which was actually fun, we enjoyed doing that and I sometimes wish we could do that now, but anyways the moment has passed.
Now it seems there are all the stores locally that anyone could want. The internet is such a big part of my life now I get a lot of social interaction from it... thankfully!!
People always ask me if I'm happy in Maine, the answer is a resounding YES! it is great, but I am happy that not everyone likes it because then we'd be overcrowded! I love that no one messes with you here, no one bothers you... definately the way life should be and I hope it doesn't change more.
I need to get organized in my head AND be held accountable (to myself at least, is anyone else reading this?) So, I am listing out my upcoming ebay auctions!
Shirley Kennedy book about Emilio Pucci, lots of beautiful vintage photos of his dresses, Renaissance in Fashion $800, plus many magazine articles, pictures, mags featuring info about Pucci
old books, 1 st editions
Vintage Lacoste items, sweaters, emblems
Vintage Hawaiian Shirt collection
vintage red ostrich purse $50
Tiffany box, boxes collection, shopping bags, ribbon in a lot (about 20 gift boxes)
Gorgeous set of Jimmy Carter books NEW $1000

PLUS much more, this is what I'm thinking off the top of my head. Now I have to get all this ready for sale. I would really love to sell this stuff now but I wonder if I can reach the money I want during the fall or winter better, hmmm...
