--- End quote ---

I have to actively remember to include "207" on my phone number when I call businesses that are out of state.  They should just know!

James Patten:
Interestingly enough, I found there's a neighborhood of Chicago, Maine township.  Their school system number is 207.

"If my cat gave birth in the oven, I wouldn't call them "biscuits"!  ;)

John Kokas:
I only lived up in Maine for a little over a year, but folks here at home called me a Mainer for a couple of years after because I still talked funny according to them.  ;D

Stephen Piwowarski:
Both my boys were born in Maine, and I had assumed that made them Mainers.
However, it was just around the time of Johnny’s birth that I first heard the adage ‘just because a cat has kittens in an oven, it doesn’t make them biscuits’.
