    You are entitled to your opinion. I think we will be able to judge for sure if this is a "horseshit conspiracy theory" by mid-January. Under your narrative, the media should be absolutely tearing into President Biden by that time. "Blood on his hands" and all that. I think we will see a major decline in COVID media coverage by mid-November depending on who wins. We will see.

    BTW, my statement has nothing to do with the actual virus. I am referring to the coverage and propaganda being beamed into everyone's homes. The virus is not a hoax, I am not arguing that. 

    "If it bleeds, it leads."  I think COVID will continue to dominate the news regardless of who's in the oval office.

  2. Tourism didn't miss a beat in NNE this summer.  In fact it felt busier in the PWM area than past years.  The major outbreaks in Maine have been linked to Churches and a wedding, both where people were indoors and unmasked. I haven't heard of any outbreaks related to out of staters.

    Yeah, Ferry Beach in Scarborough is a sneaky place to see it too.  I took this image right at sea level on Bailey Island, 75 miles from MWN


    Amazing photo.  Wow.

    I remember sitting on Ferry in June a few years ago looking over the train tracks thinking "that's a curious cloud".  When it hadn't moved 20 minutes later I realized it was the snow on top of MWN.

    Only 0.08"? Where in Portland are you? I work over on Riverside across from golf course and it poured mod to hard for 30min. I figured at least 0.3" or more


    I'm actually in South Portland, near the Scarborough line.  I, too, am often the victim of the 7-10 split so not surprised to hear that.

    I tried calling CMP this morning, but hung up after waiting 5min. Unless you talk to a tech guy I doubt cust svc would know.

    Yeah I never bother to call as only time did an outage last more than a few seconds (3 hours).  Its not just y house either, the whole street/neighborhood goes down.

    Power out again this morning for 15min. 4hrs on Sat. Over the last 2-3yrs, it randomly goes out for 2-3 sec at least once a month. Sat's 4hr outage was legit, but the other ones are annoying and hard on the equipment. CMP is the worst rated utility company in the country. While we've never had a billing issue with them, their reliability is becoming evident.

    Same exact thing happens here, so bizarre

    Must be the same one i saw on FB roaming around in some peoples yards down there, He's a young bull.

    Yessah, that's him.  He was in Scarborough on Tuesday, in my neighborhood on the Scarborough line last night, found his way across town by morning.

    Wonder if he got run off his turf by a bigger bull.  Certainly no mates in the area.

    Anyone have any tips for lacebug infestations? They've found all of my azaleas and both lily of the valleys. It's bad enough that I don't think a simple horticultural oil to control the eggs is going to be enough.

    Looking into this a bit more... are they eating your plants?  Are they a green color? Apparently the green guys are beneficial.

    I'm not sure what might work specifically for lace bugs, but if it's possible, don't kill off any wasp nests as they're natural predators.

    We've let wasps "be" this summer, as well as spiders and yellow jackets, and have had fewer bug issues than any past year.  It's hard to do when you have kids running around, but as long as the nest isn't on or in their play area, the wasps keep to themselves.

    I don't agree, This could have all been avoided if precautions were taken which did not happen in this instance, This is not the first indoor or last wedding that has happened since covid that have had outcomes come out ok, i despise the media and its biased agenda for only reporting negatives.

    Apologies, I should have clarified.   My statement should have read:  Bodes well for other indoor weddings where people are carrying on as if times were normal.  I have a friend getting married next weekend indoors - DJ, open bar, no reduction in the invitation list.  No mention of masks in the invitation.  So they're leaving it up to the attendees; maybe some will wear and some will won't, but unless everyone does it kind of defeats the purpose. 

    There are plenty of weddings taking place where people have made modifications.  Smaller size, outdoors, mask wearing.  Agreed, you won't hear about those, and that is completely biased.  Having an indoor wedding right now with no modifications is a bad idea regardless of media agenda.

    7 Maine deaths now tied to that wedding.  6 from a rehabilitation center

    Yep, and none of the deceased attended the wedding.  All secondary spread.  Bodes well for other indoor weddings happening over the next month.   People are selfish/dumb.

    Agreed. Enjoying the “calm” before the storm. Hopefully we don’t look like a third world country to the rest of the world in how we act. 

    I agree, after the election results are announced there will be chaos.  Unless you live in a major city the best thing you can do is turn off your TV and log out of twitter/reddit/facebook.  Because you're not going to see chaos in suburbantown USA.  But if you sit glued to the TV/internet then yeah, you're going to think that's reality everywhere, including your backyard.  Social media is poison (I understand this is social media, too) and perception is spoon fed - you can choose to keep your mouth open or not.
