Vote NO on 1 - Protect Maine Equality! [03 Nov 2009|01:11pm]

Marriage equality is on the ballot in Maine today and the race will be close, every vote counts. Please get out to the polls and take friends and family with you. It is essential to vote No on question 1 to keep marriage equality for gay and lesbian couples.

All couples deserve equal rights under the law, the right to the nearly 1,800 benefits that come with marriage equality that helps families file tax returns, visit loved ones in the hospital among other important family decisions. Let's keep Maine values strong and vote to preserve equality for all Mainer's.

The Top Ten New Year's Resolutions for Mainers! [03 Oct 2005|08:52pm]
Hi all! How is everyone doing today?

In celebration of the great state of Maine and the new year of 2009, I wrote this essay called "Top Ten New Year's Resolutions for Mainers." I would appreciate if anyone would take a look at it and let me know what you think. I love to write, and I love to get responses on what I write. I'm not sure where else to post this, because I think only people from Maine would know what I am talking about. :)  So if you could read my (short) essay and let me know  what you think, if you like it or not, that would be great! Thanks! It's meant to be a humor piece.

The essay is located at
and please let me know what you think!

Can anyone recommend some good hikes in the Augusta/Waterville area? All of the hiking trails I've found are at least an hour away, and I find it hard to believe there isn't anything closer. We did explore the Kennebec River Rail Trail in Augusta a few weekends back, which was nice, but I'd like something that is more of an authentic hike.

Brr it was cold this morning, looks like winter is finally on its way!

Hi everyone. I have been to ME twice and I'm about to go back in a few weeks. This time I want to find a store that has UMaine hockey apparel. Does anyone have any suggestions? I will not be making it up to Orono.

hiking with dogs [25 Jun 2007|01:30pm]

Do most places in the state let you take dogs on the public hiking trails? If not, what are some dog-friendly hiking spots? it's been a looong time since I've gone hiking in Maine and I don't remember the rules at all.

Do you get any kind of discount when you use the EZ-Pass in Maine (that is, one issued from the state of Maine)? Or do you still have to pay the same amount on the tolls as you would if you were paying with cash?

Looking for something do on the weekend? [26 Apr 2007|03:51pm]

[ mood | anxious ]

My name is Jamie and I am a Goddess with Athena's Home Novelties. Athena was a powerful Goddess of the more discipline side of war, craft, and wisdom. She was oppressed by her father Zeus for being prophesied to be more powerful then he. When swallowed, she broke free from her father's head, in full warrior garb. My job (taken from Athena) is to empower and educate people through adult home parties in hopes to erase the negative impressions given to people about embracing their sexuality.

Here at Athenas, we are all about providing a comfortable and confidential atmosphere where women and men can learn about themselves and the products that Athena's has to offer. We have everything from spa and massage products for when you come home from work, to more sensual products designed to spice up your love life! Athena's caters to the those new to pampering and shy about their sexuality to those who are older and need to revitalize themselves and their sex lives. Anyone 18 or over can have fun at an Athena's party!

On top of all that hostesses of parties get awesome benefits! All hostesses get a gift certificate for $10 to use that night on Athena's products, they also receive 10% (15% if the party sales are over $500) of all party sales (including outside orders) in free products of their choice! I also run monthly specials where you can earn even more free stuff! Also for every party booked from yours you get another $15 to use towards free products. You can't lose! Please contact me if you would like to host a party!

What kind of party can I host, one might ask? Well there are plenty of different parties, and Athena's benefits all types of people! We do not discriminate against gender, race, age, or sexual preference (or anything not listed above). Some great party ideas are:
Girls Night Out
Bachelorette Party
Bridal Shower
Housewarming Party
Football Widows Party
Relationship Rescue Party
Romantic Rendezvous Party
Cupid's Conquest Party
Trick or Treat Party
Naughty Santa Party
Him and Him Party
Her and Her Party

If anyone is interested in learning more about Athena's and finding out what it takes to become a Goddess or Adonis, you can also call the above number or drop me a line on myspace/email/lj/Aim.

I have an Athena's email, phone number, myspace, website, and livejournal to track my progress as a Goddess!

Icy Roads [17 Mar 2007|11:16pm]

[ mood | worried ]

Hey everyone. I work at AAA and just got off work. Wanted to let you know that there are seriously bad road condition out on the roads right now, even I-95 and I-295. We were taking calls for black ice from Biddeford to Waterville with people off the road and flipping their cars. If you have to go out tonight please drive carefully. If you don't have to go out, stay home. Seriously. It's not worth it.

Pet Food Recall [17 Mar 2007|11:36am]

A company that manufactures pet food for dozens of other companies has announced that some of their foods may be contaminated, which could result in sickness or death in some animals. Most of the brands are "house brands" sold at stores like Hannaford, Wal-Mart, Shaw's, PetSmart, Petco, etc., but there are a few premium and big-name brands on the list as well, including Iams, Eukanuba, Nutro, and Hill's Science Diet.

Partial list of cat foods affected by the recall:

Specific information for Iams and Eukanuba recall:


Specific information for Hill's Science Diet recall:


If any of the pet foods currently in your possession are on these lists, please return them for a full refund, and purchase something different. Better to be safe than sorry.

Slates in Hallowell is burning! [25 Feb 2007|03:22pm]

Slates in Hallowell is burning!  

I just watched the roof cave in as I was trying to get back out of town after stopping at the fish market for Maine shrimp.

I was diverted onto Second Street as I was coming into town from Augusta, I saw thick black smoke downtown and as I got closer, thought it was The Slates Bakery building - as I came back out after getting my shrimp, I saw that it was indeed the restaurant.

What a shame....

Lewiston and Augusta [01 Feb 2007|09:56pm]

Hello! I've been a member of the Maine communities for awhile but haven't posted anything.

I've just accepted a job that will require me to split my time between Augusta (when the state legislature is in session) and Lewiston (when it isn't).

I need to relocate to a place where the commute would be bearable to both cities, and is a relatively decent place to live. Litchfield seems the most central, or Gardiner and Richmond.

I've been in Maine for about six months, living and working in Norway (Oxford Hills). The furthest north I've bothered exploring is the Rumford/Bethel/Grafton Notch areas.

While Norway is a great town, there aren't many people my age (23) here, so weekend life is painfully boring. I'd love to move someplace that has a few more young people!

Any suggestions let me know!

Midnight Mass [11 Dec 2006|04:42pm]

Hello All,
I have been in Maine for about 6-8 months, and I am trying to find a nice church that has a beautiful christmas midnight mass. I usually go to my home church but I wont be close at the catholic church. If anyone can tell me a church in portland area, out towards raymond, poland area, that has a pretty midnight mass, at midnight, with candles and signing and that type of stuff I would be soooo happy.

Thanks for letting me know.

Hope everyone has a very happy holiday season.
