    • I saw them –only by stumbling onto them. When you get Grundy and Jason Cameron together, it's testosterone Overload …LOL. Videos were out of order but that's okay.

  5. I would really love to win this house, but I was just thinking the other day though, do you think I would be excluded from winning this house because I live where the HGTV Dream home winner lived? Gosh I hope not. It is such a huge dream to live in Maine.

    • The winner could turn it into a home; I feel it still needs some 'homey' touches !!

  7. Went to Dr. yesterday; he gave me a new medication that's suppose to help with my fibromyalgia & 'all over body pain', well, I had the first night of GOOD sleep that I've had in a long, long time !! Then after I was up & had coffee with Hubby, I fell back to sleep & restfully slept my a$$ off !!! Woke up feeling good, rested, & was walking without so much pain !! I did not even need to take my pain medication !! I know some of the younger, more agile bloggies won't care so much, but us 'oldies' with mobility problems can really appreciate & understand where I'm coming from !!!

    • Hi gremol…That is great news…I'm so glad you have finally gotten pain relief and getting some much needed "good" rest!!! Now maybe you can do some things that were so difficult to do before!! Just don't over do it..I'm so happy for you….Have a good day and Take care!

  8. What an incredible and breathtaking location/restoration. Hats off to all who created this tribute to the Maine coastline. I have to admit to complete and unabashed love of this state.

    Thank you for giving me something to dream on.

    • Change is the only permanent in life. I hope you get to return to your roots if it will make life happier. I know how you feel.

  10. have the leaves started to change yet? I love the fall. If anyone can send photos of what BC and the scenery now it would be great. At the end of the property is that a river or the ocean inlet? Can you fish there. Is there a beach area you can sit on or walk along when the tide is out? How far is the nearest supermarket? This seems like a real close friendly community, something out of Norman Rockwell paintings or Currier and Ives!
