Great job Dave. Really enjoyed this very informative interview. Someone needs to post it to FB.

There is a rental car franchise in Wiscasset, I think it's Enterprise.  It's located on Rt 1 at the Wiscasset Ford location, so a rental may defeat the purpose of avoiding traffic :-)

It is an Enterprise and they will bring the car to you. They have brought one to me here in Dresden.

Ed - Thanks for letting us know.

What's on the agenda for Saturday? Hope it is something energetic because it is going to be damned freaking cold.

I could get there, but getting home again later will be a much different story. Mixed precip is already in Richmond and parts of Dresden. Looking out my window across the Kennebec. The Richmond side is beginning to disappear.

Museum Discussion / BHI Publications & Maine 2 Foot Books

Tim Mulina is shutting down BHI Publications at the end of January. If there are any books that you want, you had better get them soon. Perhaps the Museum can make him a deal on remaining stock to sell in the gift shop.

I have a few outdoor tree ornaments that I can't use here in Maine. They are plastic but look like big (really big) old fashioned glass ornaments. I will get them out and bring them Tuesday - unless I get ambitious and find them in the morning. I also have a ton of incandescent lights (switching everything to LED). Unfortunately they all need to be gone through to see that they work. If you can use them, I will go through them this week. If would rather, I am willing to purchase LED's and donate them.

I have an idea for simulated candles for a tree, which is what the Victorian era would have used. Can't imagine why whole towns didn't burn down. That won't happen this year.

How brave of you to take Alexander Rd. Fire dept closed it after I went back across it to 128 where I live. Seems there was a wire down somewhere that people were driving over. Mud was too thick to see it. Hmm - told the fire dept where it was and that I had turned around.  Now I need to replace a charred pair of jeans.

Cloud is good!  We could buy external backup drives (they are now very cheap), but cloud is even better.
Backing up to the cloud and an external drive is the best scheme. There are programs that will do both on a schedule or whenever the computer is idle.

I really appreciate that you put descriptions on the photos. Most people don't and you are left wondering what that was about.
