  2. thank you susan! you sure have got a great state in maine. we explored portland a bit, and really enjoyed it, especially loved longfellow books, and many other wonderful things.

  3. yes, longfellow is excellent, and amazingly, we have several independent bookstores. (did you get to Rabelais, the food/cooking bkstore?) it's a good city to wander in..and so many natural pleasures all around. next time, i'll give you a list! or, a tour!

  7. thanks for the tips susan, and no i did not get to rabelais, although it sounds great. seriously dangerous for me to go to a food/cooking bookstore while traveling (luggage). i will never forget my first visit to kitchen arts and letters in new york, couldn't believe my eyes. will count on your advice next trip to portland.
