A lot of recycled electrons used in creating our Active Rain blog posts.
Many types of property listings in Maine exposed in a good healthy way.
The low cost real estate and small town values of living in a friendly Maine town promoted extensively.
One reblog ever, no micro waved market reports, zip for an image and a one liner passed off as a fake AR gold star blog post.
All home made, with sleeves rolled up, as much heart, soul, passion as could be mustered up at the time. For electron flow release, another media stream edition cast into the wild blue yonder for eyeballs, eardrums in the Global Village.
As the 3000 posts on Active Rain blog odometer turns over, cylinder tumblers roll, click, lock into place, thought the topic for this post should be "they".
Without you, me in a Maine small town, there would be no community.
Maine real estate is not just rows and rows of streets without the people.
That is a back lot, vacant Hollywood movie set waiting for its next production to get funding. The script approved, financing in place and off the ground here we go, on with the show. Break a leg. Said in a good way.
In a small Maine town, everything is real not silver screen fantasy. You and I are the "they".
If you hear in conversation "they ought to do something", "they need to do this, should do that" and "somebody better blah blah blah before it's too late", stop. Pause. Chose your words carefully in response.
Point out, gently remind that you and I are the "they".
The "they" they refer to are dead. Gone and buried. Outside of town a half mile and six feet under. Given a proper burial years ago.
You and I have moved up to the new "they".
It is up to us to see change. To take responsibility for the here and now. To move forward.
And to not lament, whine how it used to be.
How wouldn't it be nice if everything was like years ago? It's not. Don't get comfortable.
Splash on the cold water. Wake up and live in today.
To face challenges, realities, attack problems not people or personalities.
To come up with a plan, solutions that involves everyone getting a part, having a role.
Overspending on the national, state, local levels and a blind eye to mounting, suffocating debt that lead shoes pulls you under water to the bottom.
We all need to get high school skinny on our spending. And for expenditures we have to prioritize, making way for pain to be expected.
(Pat pat) Hop up on the exam table covered in paper.
This is gonna hurt but don't turn your head and look away.
Bite down on something solid and without being put to sleep, like bullet removal in the spaghetti westerns, hang on.
We're gonna all get through this and live to die another day. Or end up being propped up over by the corner juke box. Holding something stiff in my hand, boots full of sand. And no, not all my rowdy friends are coming over tonight. Not tonight.
Today is brought to your by the number 3000.
The word "they" and the letter "R", the hardest by far working letter in the entire alphabet. Listing, marketing, selling (repeat) and oh yeah, trading to Houlton Maine area properties.
