Cellular Service Comes to Maine

The folks in Woodstook, Maine unveiled the first cellular phone seen in their state since service was introduced to the rest of the nation in the mid 1980's. The whole town turned out to see the latest in technology. Ironically the place selected to for the ceremony was the last place in the country to have crank phone service. It remains to be seen how they will make the 15 foot tall phone mobile. Says one one rustic downeaster, " if you can't get theya from heea, you just pick up the recieva and crank!" The local hospital is concerned about a recent up swing in hernia surgery.

Man Sails Pumpkin Around the World!

No not really, that headline was just to grab you. But this is pretty wild news. I don't know what is more insane, the fact that this man found time to carve a huge pumpkin into a boat, or the fact that the BBC found this to be news worthy.

My Friends the Wolves are in Trouble!

This person on Youtube has some very clever animations of dogs and cats morphing. He is a talented video and rap artist. Recently he posted this animation he made in defense of wolves.Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin supported legislation to hunt wolves from air planes to help artificially boost the moose and elk populations. This is a clever but more serious video he has produced. Check out his other videos.

Yes even the crazy fox has as political side:)

Now That's a Pumpkin!

In a previous post I blogged about the York - Ogunquit United Methodist Church "Pumpkin Patch" fund raiser. Each autumn they sell thousands of pumpkins as a fund raiser. It's a great community activity for the congregation. My good friend helps out at the "Pumpkin Patch" selling those pumpkins. I wonder if he has a pumpkin like this one. If he does, don't ask him to carry it to your car. :)

Beautiful Murals at the Boston Public Library

This one is part of a series entitled "The Muses of Inspiration, Hail the Spirit, The Harbinger of Light" by Purvis de Chavannes. There are other amazing murals around the library by John Singer Sargent's "Judaism and Christianity," and Edwin Austin Abbey's "The Quest and Achievement of the Holy Grail."

Pumpkin Field
Originally uploaded by njchow82 It's pumpkin time. Have you ever seen so many pumpkins? I remember Pettingill's Farm in Salisbury. They had a farm stand where they would put all the pumpkins they grew. It was always a treat to go there and purchase a pumpkin to carve for Halloween. On occasion some mischievous neighborhood teens would raid the farm stand or the field and smash a few pumpkins on Ferry Road. Pettingill's was also special to us as children because they had pigs, sheep and cows. This was a real working family farm. Gradually Mr. Pettingill gave up the animals and concentrated on just his vegetable and fruit business. Most of the family farms in Salisbury are gone. They are victims of suburban housing development. Memory never fades.
