Woweee!!! Big changes!! Curious what you did with house you were living in, though?brainfix wrote: I haven't been around here much lately, too much going on in the daily march. Long story short - moved into new house with girlfriend, her daughter in 1st year of college and crazy dog. Inherited two somewhat deranged cats when I bought the house. Anyway, this post is about how different the real estate markets are between here in Bangor and there in Glosta. Yes, wages and bennies are generally lower here, depending on one's education and skill set. But the perks of living here far outweigh a lower income. Life is way calmer and quieter here, despite our whacky governor...another thread entirely.
Today I ran across https://www.trulia.com/property/3239108 ... le_bk_emv2 a 3-bedroom, two bath house in a great neighborhood. With a garage and a decent sized lot. $159.9k. Prices have gone up since I moved here almost two years ago, but are still silly cheap - by Massachusetts standards. Small town prices are way lower in Maine. The same house in a little town or former timber/mill town is about half the above figure.
If you want to leave Mass. for greener, quieter pastures, Bangor beckons. Bring your vision and skill set here. Or somewhere else in this fabulous state, our governor notwithstanding...
I wonder if they are getting tired of Governor LePage yet. If not, we might as well get used to Trump.DM3194 wrote: Governor LePage seems a little prickly on the way you folks voted on the healthcare question last Tuesday.
I dunno about any official alien abduction sites around Maine, but Gov. LePage needs to find one and stay there until they come to take him away!DM3194 wrote: This site always seemed special too me.
Another uniqueness of the North Country.
Brainfix, do you have any official alien abduction
sites in the State of Maine? Or does Governor
LePage prefer to leave them unmarked?
I haven't looked it up, but I don't think there
are many government sanctioned historical
markers about UFO abductions in the
