Citizen legislature

I am the lobbyist for the Maine Bowhunters Association and part of what I do is work with the Maine Legislature on issues important to Bowhunters. I attended my first hearing yesterday to give testimony on a proposed new law. While there I was struck once again by the access to the political process that we all enjoy here in Maine. I had not worked directly with the Joint Standing Committee on Inland Fisheries and Wildlife since I left the state agency in 2003. In fact before some of these legislators had been elected to their seats.


I went for two Reiki treatments this week. Mostly on a lark, Ruth Shaw is a member of our local chamber of commerce and offered a free treatment for sinus headache sufferers. I get sinus headaches occasionally which can be debilitating. This winter had had me feeling like I could have one any day. So I took her up on the offer.

A Weather Station of my very own!

After wanting a weather station for most of my life I have one on the roof of the office. I worked a good part of the day getting everything installed and hooked up. I had some trouble getting the barometer to work but was able to get it work after exchanging e-mails with customer service. They were actually of no help but did get me thinking on the right path to helping myself. The weather station was a gift from my sons and it is a great feeling to have one.
