    Don't mind if I do.

    I'm guessing you're thinking of Poland Springs Golf (club?) I know that's an oldie.

    You nailed it with the bolded comment. I always chuckle when Maine is bandied about as some liberal enclave. The state does go blue for presidential elections (social issues), but is otherwise quite split politically with few on either extreme - particularly when one leaves the only real population density (Greater Portland) - then it's down right wilderness.

    Quick anecdote: Our first winter in our house I shoveled our driveway - which was quite a task. Our neighbor would come over with his snowblower for every storm and clear out the heavy slush at the road that the plow truck would pile up. He did this without ever looking my way - not wanting a "thanks" or even so much as a head nod of appreciation from me. It's simply how things are done and what is expected.

    As for our coast, measurements vary depending upon how granular one wants to be with measurements, but a largely accepted number is around 3,500 miles. A sailing mecca!

    More silly trivia: Maine's the only state that borders one other state. It's the only monosyllabic state.

    Poland Springs it is. Also a source of some pretty good water. Good people up there. If I'm not mistaken, not unusual for Pastors to travel to different churches and preach the same day on Sunday.

    Derry is probably the most popular city in Maine and it doesn't exist.

    I would be more than happy to explain the rating i left....

    IT WAS AN ACCIDENT! my goodness people, have you ver heard of a typo?

    I jave not posted on GC for nearly two months and log in today to read a few threads to find out i was banned because i accidentally hit the wrong ratong button on my smart phone?

    Notice, the thumbs up and thumbs down sumbols are rlght beside each other. My big dang thumb hit thw wromg symbol . Thats it folks, no big conspiracy here.

    I have recently gotten my first smart phone and am a horrible typer om it right now.

    I think a get together is a wonderful idea
    for those who want to.

    Sorry for all the confusion, but it was just an innocent mistake.

    Thanks Gray, perhaps she owes you an apology since that poster is so quick to call other posters out time and time again. I pointed out this has happened to me and others on the board.

    Thanks for the explanation, Gray. You were "banned"?! o_O



    Gatorman, as I didn't "call out" Gray, or otherwise berate him in asking for an explanation - no apology is necessary.

    This forum is appropriately named "Too Hot." What you may view as me "call[ing] other posters out time and time again," is me engaging with other participants on the forum, expressing my opinions and views based on what they, themselves have posted. I make no apology for this. You may not like or agree with what I write just as sometimes you post things I don't agree with. That's the way it is on this board. If someone is offended by what I write and feels entitled to an apology, perhaps that person shouldn't be participating on a Too Hot thread.

    we used to have a button for negative rep way back when- I gave it to a certain poster who shall remain anonymous and the next thing you know she whined like a baby and the button was removed-hell I get dislikes and disagrees all the time- this is a political discourse forum

    I have it on good authority if you do your shoulder will heal faster!

    Heck, you, Austin & I could make a little trip and "talk" to some Scientologists (I'm only half kidding).

    in her defense, bill, it wasn't a political forum. it was the pub. and she hadn't posted anything controversial. she always posted just light or conversational stuff.

    ;)

    Well you are awfully kind...relatively speaking. I have a cozy trunk that the average right winger can fit in :)
