An Act To Encourage Transparency in the Disclosing of the Ingredients in Vaccinations for Children
"The purpose of this bill is to provide greater transparency regarding the ingredients of vaccinations and to reduce confusion related to school immunization requirements and a parent's right to decide against immunizing that parent's child. The bill requires a health care provider or clinic staff person to, prior to immunizing a person under 18 years of age, disclose the ingredients of the immunizing agent or agents to the parent or guardian of the child. It also requires the health care provider or clinic staff person to notify the parent or guardian of the option of refusing immunization of the child based on religious or philosophical beliefs."

This is Dick B. speaking to you from Maui Hawaii. And this evening's show will tell you the latest highlights of "The First International Alcoholics Anonymous History Conference" being held September 6-7, 2013, in Portland, Maine, at The First Baptist Church of Portland Maine, located at 360 Canco Rd in Portland.
We have a special Web page for the conference. It can be seen at http://mcaf.ee/ghcky. My son Ken B. and I will be in Portland, Maine, staying at the Hilton Garden Inn Portland Airport at 145 Jetport Blvd. in Portland from Thurs., Sept. 5, to Thurs., Sept. 12. The main events of the conference will be held Fri.-Sat., September 6-7. Ken and I will also meet with individuals or groups between Sept. 6 and Sept. 12 to discuss the many topics I'll mention in this show. We have found that special meetings in our hotel lobby, hotel room, restaurants, and other convenient places can often be the heart of and the most productive part of these conferences. They allow for personalized questions, comments, suggestions, discussions, and planning on our three major focuses as historians and authors of Alcoholics Anonymous History and A.A.'s Roots in the Bible. Please contact me at DickB@DickB.com and arrange in advance for convenient times and places for such Portland meetings.
Main historical focuses will be on: (1) The 12 Steps of A.A. (2) A.A. Origins, History, Founders, and Facts. (3) Sponsorship Today. (4) Orienting and informing newcomers. (5) A.A. History Past, Present, and Future.
And now for more conference details which we hope will encourage you to attend, participate, speak, and even bring exhibits. Following are many possible subjects where you may have experience and expertise that will help recovering newcomers today.
Let's Do Lunch! visits La Bella Vita at The Samoset Resort in Rockport, Maine. There's more to Maine than succulent and sweet lobster, which host Robin Milling discovered courtesy of the delicious tasting prepared by Executive Chef Tim Pierce.
Cooking is not Tim's only talent. He tells Robin about his award winning ice-carving sculptures such as a life-size mammoth, and gingerbread holiday creations. Tim grew up in Boothbay Harbor and says he was hooked by the kitchen with his first job as a dishwasher, joking that he's still doing dishes! He began cooking as a teenager out of necessity due to his working parents with skills so impressive he was making baguettes by nine and preparing dinner parties for the family. At the early age of 20 he became an executive chef.
Lobster is a must on the menu but there's always an Italian twist starting with Antipasto Della Casa featuring Italian meats and cheeses garnished with house-made mustardo, fig jam, and juicy raisins still on the vine. The Swedish inspired crispy hand-crafted gnocchi adds a pleasing crunch with wild mushrooms, Italian bacon, and spinach topped with creamy Pecorino sauce. Tim, who has been lobster chef of the year prepared an Italian style surf and turf featuring the sweet knuckle of the butter poached lobster and petite filet mignon topped with Tuscan potato puree.
The summer months are perfect for al fresco dining at La Bella Vita, either by night with romantic views of Penobscot Bay or for lunching lazily watching the lobster schooners go by.

Milling About visits The Nonantum Resort in Kennebunkport, Maine which is rich in history dating back to 1884 when Henry Heckman built a stately home overlooking the Kennebunk River to honor his ship's captain brother David, lost at sea. The name Nonantum is Algonquin Indian meaning 'rejoicing;' fitting for the resort celebrating over 125 years. The lobby of the Carriage House is homey with a welcoming fireplace and fresh baked blueberry scones, featuring Maine's finest fruit. The original old-fashioned elevator with iron gated door and manual lever is refurbished, and is still used to ferry guests.
General Manager Tina Gordon, celebrating her 21 season, joins host Robin Milling to talk about the hotel's newest finds which have been discovered through renovations such as the original hotel safe, and a priceless stash of letters from guests to the innkeeper found inside horsehair plaster in the walls from the early 1900s. Tina says there is a resident ghost Sadie who likes to hang out by the fireplace, and kitchen spirits who have been known to move pans and throw things off the top of the refrigerator to get the staff's attention!
Innkeeper Jean Ginn Marvin who left a life of politics in Maine legislature for hospitality, makes sure she walks 10,000 steps a day making the guests happy. When at The Nonantum drive along Ocean Drive, and in less than 1.2 miles you'll get a glimpse of President George Bush's summer estate which sits on it's own private little island at Walker's Point. The secret service took some getting used to but Jean says the Bushes are regulars at Nonantum for parties and events and couldn't be more charming and appreciative of their hospitality.
