Maine Real Estate For Sale !


Newcast In Ten Minutes And Have A Segment Hole (Opening Dead Horse Drawer).


What to broadcast, serve up today?

Media talking heads are the same as everyone...sometimes they are pushed for a blue sky lake boy imagestory and on a slow news day when they've were up too late the night before, scramble time. (Creaking sound as file drawer opens up, fruit flies come out in waves)...Finding a story, remaking a story from a year ago perspective, no....the clock is ticking and they need something, a filler.

     Could be creative with a human interest piece like "Charles Kuralt On The Road Again" genre. No, nothing canned for this purpose. Hey car industry, real estate, war over seas...could look for a thread, something on the AP wire to build around quickly, lathering it with gloom and doom. Listeners, viewers like that negative stuff and see it as hard, reality news, something with a bite right? Real estate it is...we can hammer away about the statistics somewhere that are bleak, poor performing and whip up a piece that the stall continues, making it look like the whole country is the same way.

     Broad-brush approach.

Let's see where are the gems to be the poster child for this negative piece....Detroit with the crippled auto industry or parts of Florida that have tanked..those could be the weaker deer in the herd to exploit.

Should check my facts first as maybe those areas are healthy, rebounded and inventory is selling like hot cakes. Naw....only six minutes to script this puppy and who's going to check the story. I can always state "this according to an "anonymous source that declined to be identified and made the comment under protection of being revealed" kinda of lingo says such and such. It's just a package piece with all the buzz words, easy to digest format for the drive time listeners on this station to digest, ponder. And their minds are half asleep, they are on the 8:15 into the city and not the sharpest bunch. Headline... "The Real Estate Hammer Continues To Beat Down Professionals In The Orange Juice And Motor City Areas Of The Country..That story after this break for Jiffy Lube, when you need your vehicle's fluids sucked dry/replaced in a hurry"...(Jiffy Lube jingle starts, drones out).

     News? Is it news? You don't expect Happy News and everything seen thru Rosy Glasses to make it look maine fall colorslight and bright but a steady diet of killing, economy in the tank, all black and no ray of sunshine news can take its toll, cause depression. Life is not suppose to be that way right? Bloggers do their part to broadcast the news from their area of the world, to get the word out. In Maine, bank foreclosures are very rare because mortgages are low to begin with. We like to get those mortgages paid off, doubling up and aware kids in college are going to need a helping hand and clearing the deck of the mortgage is a real pressure, self inflicted pressure called family priorities.

Our fun usually involves part of a tank of gas, a camping trip to the many beautiful parks, mountains, coastal areas to explore, discover "Vacationland", the label stamped on every license plate in Maine. We do with our kids what our parents did with us..week on the ocean with money saved for that purposed. Money diverted from the day to day or earned from extra activities. Not  a lot of money to manage but awareness of what the electric bill is, how many cords of wood to heat the home we need, etc.

     Kids are taught turn those lights off at an early age so it is a habbit. Get in and out of the refrigerator...not to leave it open taking inventory and hoping pizza or pie suddenly appears even though it was not there ten minutes ago on the last inspection. Little things are what make Maine the place to be. maine snowmobiliers directionsIt's an attitude of make the most of it, find the silver lining and goes back to life on the farm.

Everyone was a farmer back in the 1800's. And a year you broke even was a happy one, you got to farm again in the game of survival.

     Nothing is just expected, taken for granted. It is earned, appreciated and blessings thanked morning, noon and night. Is that the way you want to settle in, live your day on a simple basis?

     Retire here, raise a family here or at least consider investing in some Maine recreational property for your sanity's sake. Clean fresh Maine air...go ahead, fill your lungs, hold it in and gander up at the million stars at night, the blue blue sky without pollution over head. Maine, it's the way life should be. Simple. Real. With fewer but friendlier people that care about you for neighbors down the road. Is that missing where you live now or is the nice little town you lived in twenty years ago, not so nice now? Maine, get here just as quick as you can.

Good morning, Andrew. Great pictures. I especially like the subliminal "Welcome" in the snowmobile picture!

Andrew, great synopsis of what the news does on a daily basis...  and nowdays with news 24-7 its getting harder to escape the dreary news.  Sounds like the values in your family were the same as the values in my family on the west coast, guess its an American thing.  :)  Shut that door my mom would say, you don't live in a barn.

Everyone is looking for direction....these guys are working on a lung cancer and figuring out the 3500 mile snowsled trail map system in Sherman Maine when I caught them with my Brownie Hawkeye. Thanks for the visit Leslie.

You did not waste anything because you did not have anything to waste. Health care when you have a state welfare card and trot into the Emergency Room like it is a band aid station for every running nose. You over use it, abuse it because it cost you nothing, and costs all of us everything. It's a way of thinking, an attitude.  I think years ago there were rules, black and white areas everyone for the most part followed. Now, not so much. More of a "Don't tell me what to do thinking" when it is just the way it was for so long, there was not a choice and no one asked for an opinion.  And that's why they invented Maine...(beating the Chamber Of Commerce drum loudly).
