I went to college in Maine and, after graduation, lived in the state for another three years before defecting to Seattle. It's a nice state. If you believe everything you're told, it's "the way life should be." I don't know if I'd go that far, but it has its good qualities.
I bring this up because I stumbled across the Maine Maven blog yesterday, and just fell in love with the header (see martini at left). I'm not sure how the the potent potable fits into the Maine lifestyle (I think it's more of a beer place), but the garnishes win.
Since my stints in Washington and Connecticut, I've made my way back to my home state. But every day I cross the Piscataqua to work in Maine, where sometimes I partake of wild blueberries or lobster.
