Give Amy Allen a capital "A" for effort while the singer-songwriter also makes an upper case for herself in the Ambition Department. Backed by the group she started forming in February 2014, Allen is revving up for a promising music career with Amy & the Engine.
So much was off-limits to me because of my culture and my traditional parents. I was not allowed to have sleepovers or sleep at anyone's house. When I wanted to skateboard, I was firmly told no. That was for boys. Besides, good girls stay home to mind their business, but boys could stay out because, well, they were boys. It was their birthright.
Today, the Earth got a little hotter, and a little more crowded.
As a stay-at-home mom, who had to return to the lagging labor market after my divorce, finding work was a challenge. I was a homesteader for many years. I grew food, I made things with my hands, I cared for my sons -- all skills that somehow had to translate into employment.
There is nothing like a New England summer! The smell of wet freshly-mowed grass. Delicious lobster rolls from casual shacks by the water's edge. Swi...
CareLinx wholeheartedly endorses and supports Senator Collins' initiative. We witness first-hand every day the tremendous toll caregiving has on families, both financially and emotionally. And the challenge is going to worsen, as baby boomers begin to age and the pool of family caregivers starts to shrink.
As small business owners, we pride ourselves on delivering a product that is second to none. However, there are many more facets to our brand than pr...
Nancy Hopkins-Davisson never really heard herself until she heard herself on television. The year was 1975, and Nancy -- then just Hopkins, a high-school student born and raised on the island of North Haven -- was one of three young people interviewed for a Maine Public Broadcasting documentary about island life.
I received the advance copies of Chance Harbor, my new novel yesterday. The publisher's box arrived at the perfect time: tomorrow I'm going to Prin...
As a girl who loves a good superhero film, I wish more than anything that I had more female characters to look up to. Not women that are sexy and flexible, and are the love interests, but women who are strong, brave and just as tough as the male superheroes.
I know a lot of my friends will be doing internships this summer, working odd jobs, going to summer school, or doing community service. They probably think I'm a little too old to be going away to summer camp to dress up in funny costumes and make friendship bracelets... again.
Tired of facts? Do you think all the concern about climate change is just a bunch of hooey? Then this newscast is for you.
My boyfriend and I had strategized our weekend trip to Maine with a carefully mapped selection of local favorites, return-worthy lobster rolls, and breathtaking views from our road trip the year before. We snacked, shopped, and chatted our way up to our destination.
Green islands and white sailboats dot the water. Dogs frolic along the rocky beach. Children sit on benches with their feet dangling above the ground, licking ice cream cones as big as their heads. This is Bar Harbor, a quaint town on Mount Desert Island off the coast of eastern Maine.
If the taps are listed on a chalkboard, then huzzah. If you can throw peanut shells on the floor, then so much the better. And if you need elaborate directions to find the place, then you're almost certainly on the right track. Here are a few favorites (you'll have to ask around for directions).
Everyone has a different idea of the perfect Maine summer -- one man's breezy beach day is another's mountain climb or demolition derby.
