Where You Can Pick Blueberries in Maine

If you’re looking for a farm that will let you pick your own blueberries, you’re in luck because there are several in Maine.

The 80th Anniversary Season at the Ogunquit Playhouse kicks off with Always, Patsy Cline

The 80th Anniversary Season at the Ogunquit Playhouse kicks off with Always, Patsy Cline, on stage from May 23 through June 16. This show is told through the letters of star-struck fan Louise Seger, portrayed by Emmy Award winning actress, Sally Struthers. This popular musical, which has enjoyed great success both off-Broadway and across the nation, is based on the true story of Cline’s friendship with Seger, who befriended the star in a Texas honky-tonk in l961 and continued a correspondence with Cline until her death. Featuring the unforgettable hits of the Country Music mega-star, this funny and touching tribute celebrates the career and life of the singer who died tragically in a plane crash in 1963.

For All My Frequent Flyers

I work at the Shipyard Brewpub and the Linda Bean’s Lobster Café at the Portland International Jetport. There is something very bizarre about working in an airport, especially the restaurant industry. Some of what I am about to share with you, I could not make up.

Portland International Jetport is also known as “PWM” or “Portland Westbrook Municipal”. For a long time I was asked why it wasn’t called “PIJ” (Portland International Jetport) and I was always ashamed to say I never knew. The reason for it is because dating back pilots used a series of lights to navigate arrival and the last set of lights at PWM was located in Westbrook. Now, the City of Portland owns the airport, although the governing body of the airport used to be located in both Portland and Westbrook.
