Wyoming Has the Best Looking License Plate, Maine at Number Six

Car Insurace.com did a survey to find the best looking license plate in the nation. The number one best looking plate went to Wyoming whose plate features a cowboy riding a bucking bronco and a snow capped mountain range.  The image was first used on an insignia on uniforms of the Wyoming National Guard during World War 1.

‘Scattering CJ’: Renee Is One Of Many Helping An Auburn Mom Find Some Peace With Her Son’s Death

A few weeks ago I was reading a story on Facebook about Scattering CJ.  It is a story about a mother in Auburn whose son died April 14, 2010 and her journey to find some peace with what happen. He committed suicide. CJ was only 20.  I was drawn to Hallie Twomey’s story for two reasons. One, losing a child is the last thing any parent should have to endure. Two, her son died the same way my father died when I was 12.

2014: Where Would You Like to Travel To?

I wouldn't consider myself a world traveler. Yes, I have been to Alaska, Italy and Australia but there are so many more places I would LOVE to see!

Chad and I are planning to honeymoon in Nashville. I have been there twice...but the only things I've seen there is the ice arena and the Randy Travis store (which I don't think is there anymore). And I saw the outside of the Country Music Hall of Fame.

I want to EXPLORE! I want to stand on the stage at the Ryman!

Rt 4 in Turner Woman in White…A Legend or Real?

While driving to Brad's basketball practice in Auburn from Chad's parent's house in Turner, we have to travel Route 4. When I started dating Chad and would travel out to see his parents he would say "Be careful on Route 4. It's the most treacherous piece of road in the state. There have been so many accidents."

So I have been careful. I have heard and read about the numerous accidents that have happened in the last 2 years. Little did I know that between Turner and Auburn, there have been more than 600 accidents since 2003. But I didn't know what MIGHT have caused a few of them.

As the fiance' of a man taking his driving course right now, a man who is excited to start a new job doing what thousands of Mainer's before him have done, I am not very happy.

Road to Walmart in Waterville Under Construction

If you plan on being in Waterville today, be aware of a little construction going on from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.. If you want to eat at Cappza's Pizza, get your game on at Game Stop, pick up that little box of hair color at Sally's Beauty Supplies, more salt for your water softener at Home Depot or do your banking at Bangor Savings Bank, you might have a little bit of a wait.
