RD & Homie Wishing You a Happy Easter

biteaster

Have you ever noticed what a weird name daffodil is? I had to look it up to make sure I spelled it right. It was affodil but the etymological merging from the Dutch article “de”, as in “De affodil”, and voila, a goofy name for the harbinger of summer.

Thanks for Your Thoughts

During my recovery, I received many cards and gifts from friends wishing me well. Every single one is appreciated. Here are a few creative and unique examples. Clockwise from GMG's Rubber Duck: sign from a young Gloucester man, jigsaw puzzle from Florida folks, Easter card from Rockport's Alamo, another street sign from a Gloucester kid, as well as the blue 'Get Well Soon' background. I am getting well, and wish you all a Happy Easter. Fred

People start pollution people can stop it

Cat Ryan submits-

Hey Joey,

Whether you fall on the side of these commercials are a prime example of greenwashing, this is SUCH a landmark PSA, let’s make another parody, or hey wait a minute Iron Eyes Cody was Sicilian?—people of a certain age remember seeing the Ad Council’s Keep America Beautiful ads. Lassie and Lady Bird Johnson were helping the campaign, too. Wildflowers and THE dog.

I was a kid. This tv spot was memorable and effective.

And this one. William Conrad voice over.

The Rozalia Project lecture at Maritime Gloucester for the kick-off event of the first Harbor community clean up reminded me of these ads. In a positive way! Highways look better. Now on to our shoreline and ocean floors. There was a photo of a crab trying to maneuver past sunglasses and various beverage cans in Newport that specifically brought those commercials back to me. Oh, and check your toothpaste and skin polishers – no poly anything ingredient. Trust me.

The next day following that lecture, clean up happened all around the harbor, right at the water’s edge, different neighborhoods, and even by boat. Kudos to Maritime Gloucester for organizing and Harbortown and Rocky Neck Cultural Districts and other partners and volunteers.

At Maritime Gloucester, the Rozalia Project robot, Hector the Collector, went to work while Audie Tarr and others set out in boats for some surface retrieval. Gig Rowers in action, too.

Joey,
Last year the topic of Easter Parades came up.
In the 1950′s,most people went to church on Sunday. People dressed up for Easter Sunday. Most got a new outfit, shoes or hat.
The Easter Parade in Gloucester was on Easter Sunday afternoon along the Boulevard.
The attached picture is from 1952. We had just moved into my grandmother’s home at 22 Mansfield St.
Our family walked down to the Boulevard and Bill Cafasso took our picture and it was in the Gloucester Daily Times.
The information on the back of the photo says:

Left to right
22 Mansfield St.

Nancy Power, age 10
Donald Power, Jr. age 3
Peter Marr, age 9
8 Mansfield St.
Easter Sunday, 1952
Eileen Power Davis died in 1985, leaving a husband and 3 children. 
Nancy Power Parsons is retired and lives in NJ with her husband.
They have 5 children, numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Donald Power, Jr. is retired and lives in Albuquerque, NM
Don and his wife have 3 children and 6 grandchildren
Peter Marr was a neighbor and family friend. He remained on Cape Ann.
Happy Easter!

Hi Joey,

This is my very corny mini photo essay of the events of Wed. 4.16.14.

What to you get when you mix Jon Butcher, 3rian King and Aurelia Nelson?

HOT RADIO, that’s  what!  I don’t know what got into her, but Aurelia Nelson decided to host them both at the same time on the same Curtain Up show that will air tomorrow SUN at 9am on Northshore 104.9 FM.  3rian & Jon talk about their upcoming shows next week (3rian with The Number Nines a Fresh Take on The Beatles benefit for the UU Church Meetinghouse on Friday (4/25) and Jon at the Larcom Theatre on Saturday (4/26) with his Boston area debut of The Jon Butcher Axis: Celebrating the Music of Jimi Hendrix.

Hendrix and The Beatles were sensations at the same time, but in different genres.  Jon & 3rian talk about this period and their experience bringing the music to a new level in the 21st Century.

Sgt. Pepper and Are You Experienced were both released in 1967.  As a kid, I played both albums until they wore out.

Those were the days when your friends would come over, you’d put on a record, sit on the floor and listen to a whole side without talking.  Nobody does that any more …
