Maine Ranked “The Most Peaceful State”

USA Today writes that an international think-tank has ranked Maine the most peaceful U.S. state.  New Hampshire is #2.

It’s probably because people don’t get out much in winter 🙂

And the fact that there aren’t many people in the first place.

But I’m not complaining.

Although we’re about a month behind my home town in terms of trees blossoming, Spring has finally arrived: snow is mostly gone.
I heard the year’s first woodpecker, and the woods and ponds are newly alive with the sounds of birds, ducks and geese.  A young eagle perched outside our window last week!   Sorry, no picture 😦
