maine: Realtors Are Rolling In Dough! - 12/04/10 07:41 AM

Yeah, right!  Most of us aren't, contrary to popular belief.  I have found that most folks don't know "the real story" behind a Realtor's pay day, so let's see if we can't clear up a little of the confusion...
Agents generally do not get any kind of "salary or draw", nor are they provided with company cars, health insurance, paid time off, company computers or company cell phones. We purchase a lot of our own advertising plus name riders, signs, brochure boxes, cameras, etc. We don't get cost of living increases or bonuses.  The average commission, in the 11+ years that … (58 comments)

maine: It's Ear Muff Day In Maine! - 12/04/10 06:21 AM
Today in Farmington, Maine, townsfolk are celebrating Ear Muff Day!  The inventor of the ear muff in 1873, Chester Greenwood, who was just 15 years old at the time, had chilly ears!  He patented his ear muffs at the age of 19.  Did you know that ear muffs were this old? 
Greenwood was a very talented boy and invented many more things by the time he reached adulthood, including folding beds and donut hooks.  In 1936, his factory was turning out hundreds of thousands of ear muffs.  Greenwood also installed the first telephone system in the town of Farmington!

maine: It's Fall In Maine - That Means Apple Time! - 10/16/10 08:45 AM

I played hookey for a little bit last week and went apple and pumpkin picking at a Giles Farm, a local orchard located in Alfred, Maine.  It was a gorgeous day, still quite warm with a fresh breeze blowing gently.  The orchard is located on a hillside and the scenery was just breathtaking with all of the beautiful fall colors just starting to show up in the valley below and hills beyond. 

The lady at the apple stand was wonderful; she fixed us right up with an "apple grabber" and pointed us in the right direction for the favored apple, … (19 comments)

maine: It's Almost End Of Season Here In Wells, Maine! - 08/14/10 06:19 AM
We all know what that means!  Bumper to bumper traffic on Route 1 and The Maine Turnpike.  Left turns are an exercise in patience and can be hairy at best.  The last blast of summer in Maine always brings out the big crowds.  Beaches, shops and restaurants are packed with happy vacationers - and the weather has been fabulous!  Even though the end of summer is near, there is still plenty to do and see here in Wells and the surrounding communities!
Check out the famous Ogunquit Playhouse at:  There are still plenty of shows going on with stars such … (0 comments)
