Wednesday, Mainely

It's snowing, but you can tell that it really doesn't want to be. There's no passion in this snow, no heart in the storm. It seems to want to go away as much as the robin sitting in the tree would like it to go away.

There's some interesting stuff going on around the state (it's not every day that we can make that claim), and it makes for pleasant reading over a cup of coffee while the flakes drift slowly to the ground:

Reverb, a Portland consulting firm is working with rock musicians (Bonnie Raitt, Dave Matthews, Guster) to "green" their tours. Biodiesel and guitar string jewelry for all!

The UMaine Black Bears received their traditional send off to the Frozen Four yesterday in Orono. They will face the mighty Spartans of Michigan State on Thursday night. Boston College will play North Dakota in the other semi-final game on Thursday.

In York this spring, residents are no longer fighting (really, the dog law battle was long and very divisive) about dogs on the beach. This spring, the discussion is about surfing access, and as is often the case in Maine, summer folks are of one opinion and year-round residents are of another and the Board of Selectmen tries to play Solomon.

The Food Network names Portland as a finalist for Most Delicious Destination. Yum.

A replica of a Maine Lighthouse was dedicated on Lake Havasu, AZ. Thankfully it wasn't the Nubble.

Ashley Cimino, a girls' basketball player from Portland has been named a Parade All-American. The only other woman from Maine to receive this honor is now the Michigan State Women's BBall coach (Joanne McCallie).

I just found your blog through All Things Maine. I love it!

The snow is disturbing is it not? I took photos for my blog, but have to wait until tomorrow to post them.

Yeah for Portland on the Food Network thing! I have deep, deep love for Portland.

Nice to "meet" you,

Thanks so much for stopping by, Monkey! So glad to find another Maine blogger, especially one who loves Portland (so do I).
I snooped around your very clever blog earlier. It's wonderful.
