Without ethics, a culture will collapse. Greed fails us all daily.

Meet Susan & Bill Menz, Innkeepers


Along the Coast of Maine: There is a state of mind that is uniquely found in the State of Maine. There is more coastline in this state (3500 miles) than the entire West Coast of the USA. Here is the largest area in the country of unspoiled virgin forest (17 million acres). Over 90% of the 1M person population lives in the lowest one-third of the state. It takes nine hours to drive from Kittery (in the South) to the northernmost region above Caribou.

The people here have become quite self-sufficient.

Summers are ever wistful... winter is always coming!  Autumn is spectacular, winters long and bone-chillingly cold, and a spring that predictably defines "mud season." It makes for a tenacious, resourceful personality that somehow enjoys the temperature of the ocean waters (so cold the lobsters are the sweetest on earth). People settle in and become "Mainers" and going "Down East" always means returning home.

In this episode of the show you meet eleven business owners, but right now we turn our attention to Susan & Bill Menz, Innkeepers, where hospitality is their key. They would rather live in Maine than anywhere else in the world. They are seasoned travelers who, after touring the world, decided to stay in Maine and make it their home and build their legacy.
