Sunset on the lake


No matter where you are in the world, everything seems to stand still during sunset time. This was the same feeling in Maine. It always seems to be brighter after a storm, this being after the hurricane remnants.

Quoddy Head Light House


Can you imagine at one point someone lived in this light house? It is a shame that all of the light houses are all automated now.

Big waves as a result from the hurricane.

A photographer is born!


I gave my almost 3 year old daughter her own first digital camera to kick off the vacation, she thought that was so cool! This is the Fisher Price digital camera. It has an easy view for both eyes, a back view and easy editing. Granted the quality is not there but they you can certainly have fun with how they see the world on camera. I will be sporting some of the cool pics she took. One bad note about this camera, the button used to take the picture should be larger and easier to push, otherwise it is easy to use.

A little more political insight

So, you think you know where you stand, politically. Think again! My sister-in-law emailed me the quiz, I took it and according to the results I am a Libertarian. What is a Libertarian?

LIBERTARIANS support maximum liberty in both personal and
economic matters. They advocate a much smaller government; one
that is limited to protecting individuals from coercion and violence.
Libertarians tend to embrace individual responsibility, oppose
government bureaucracy and taxes, promote private charity, tolerate
diverse lifestyles, support the free market, and defend civil liberties.

The results from this short test may surprise you and give you some food for thought.You'll be asked just 10 questions, and then it instantly tells you where you stand politically. It shows your position as a red dot on a "political map" so you'll see exactly where you score.The most interesting thing about the Quiz is that it goes beyond the Democrat, Republican, and Independent.
The Quiz has gotten a lot of praise. The Washington Post said it has "gained respect as a valid measure of a person's political leanings."The Fraser Institute said it's "a fast, fun, and accurate assessment of a person's overall political views." Suite University said it is the "most concise and accurate political quiz out there."

Budweiser Brewery Part 2

This is what my daughter really wanted to see her at the Brewery, the horses! This is Big Scott, located at the entrance to the tour.


One of four Clydesdale's teams are housed here, very nice!





Oh it was hot that day, and they felt it also. My daughter was upset to find out she could not ride the horses. I went the route of telling her that they were on a break and it was too hot for them to take rides. Amazing horses and the history was very cool. Given as a gift from the son to the father in the 1930's as a celebration of the end of prohibition, it all started from there!
