I was painting a house in Portland's West End about 15 years ago when Bruce Hornsby went jogging by.

Bruce Springsteen has done some recording at Gateway Studio, and I saw Natalie Merchant and her friend walking up Congress Street one night, my friend and I were able to talk them into going to The Skinny with us, that was pretty cool.

the guy who invented the shot gun?



Firearms were recognized as hunting arms as early as 1515, and a book (Balleates Mosetuetas y Areabuces Pablo del Fucar, Naples, 1535) on sporting firearms appeared in 1535



Shotguns were around long before Maine was

I think they're referring to Hiram Stevens Maxim, the inventor of the first portable, fully automatic machine gun, who was born in Sangerville in 1840.
There is still a gun show in Dover-Foxcroft every summer that is named in his honor.

IIRC, Kirstie Alley sold her house in Islesboro to another actor who's name I can't remember.

John Travolta has a huge house there with his wife, I can't think of her name right now.

The girl that used to judge American Idol (not Paula or Ellen) lives here somewhere with her husband.

Mike Bordick, former MLB player was from Maine.
