I like the idea of a group hug, Smoke14WIns. :D

Large tracks of land being in the family for generations sounds kind of typical for that part of the northeast, Beav. This land of my in-laws has been in their family for a long time, but I'm not sure exactly how long... nowhere near 200 years, I'm sure. Still, it's been "home" to them for a long time. Every 10 years or so, they have a timber sale so it provides them with some extra income.

This land has been in their family for so long that it goes back before the town was incorporated or founded. It was founded in 1804 and the homestead was build in 1789.

Growing up in New England, I took for granted all the roadside signs I would see showing that a town was founded in the 1700's. Having been away from that for many years, it really caught my attention the few times I've been back. That part of our country has so much history. After all, it was the original 13 colonies.

The town I live in was founded in 1794 but was incorporated in 1779 and it means changing all the signs and that is an expensive proposition as we used custom colored reflective paint. We have the word "incorporated" but we have the wrong year on all the signs. Bunch of idiots.

How many people (besides you) know he signs are wrong? Maybe some of the residents, but I'm sure 99% of the visitors would never know. 1779~1794 what's the dif?!? Either way, it was a loooong time ago. ;) :lol:

But, you're probably a stickler for detail, huh Beav!?! :roll: :) :D :lol: :lol:

Actually, me being from away, I had no idea. It was one of the members of the Bridgton Historical Society that uncovered this little mistake, but there are some that are making a huge deal out of it. And yes, I would be one of those making a huge deal out of this. Although I have bigger fish to fry.

I would expect that from members of the Historical Society. I think by nature, they would be detail oriented people. Some people would get their knickers in a wad over something like this, but as you say, "I have bigger fish to fry."

Power is back on.
We had a strong but short storm to come. Our power went out before it stuck my house with the winds & rain with possible hail. The city has been replacing street lights. Don't know why other than they wanted to replace them with ones that have live cameras in them to catch speeders & have live coverage of accidents. The city next door where the kids go to school, every single red light they're putting up cameras for speeding. They had it ever few lights, but EVERY red light is getting one now. So I figured something went wrong there.

Upon leaving the house to get pizza from Pizza Hut for dinner, I seen what the problem was. 2 roads over from us were some yahoo side job tree people cutting down this super tall tree. A huge branch (1/2 the tree) fell thru their ropes & it knocked our power out & busted up the chain fence of the yard owner. That's what he gets for hiring yahoo people because they're cheap.

I stopped at the stop sign right before his house & it'a good thing I didn't go on because they were still working to finish cutting down the tree & they cut 1/2 the tree size limb down again & it went swinging way out in traffic & almost busted out the window of the house too as they tried to get it under control.

I get back with pizza & our local elec company was there looking the situation over. Now we have our power back on. I guess we was without power for a tat over an hr.
