Penobscot County in Maine which is comprised of cities Bangor, Brewer and Old Town, and towns like Orono, Millinocket, Etna, Dixmont, Holden, Herman and more is looking for a few ‘big’ trees.
This is the time year when leaves are falling all the time and we rake, rake, and rake. Leaves fall in more places than on your yard, if you have a patio, they fall there too. You can rake the leaves on the patio but you will also need to sweep.
I've noticed ‘crows’ have been in the trees again by the radio station. Every year around this time thousands of crows show up in the early morning hours and then are gone by late morning.
Until the Christmas of 1880 Christmas trees when decorated with candles. As you can imagine that would be quite dangerous having lighted candles on a dry tree. Thomas Edison, who invented the incandescent bulb in 1879, hung a string of electric lights outside his lab in New Jersey and that was the beginning of electric lights at Christmas.
