email me at firstname.lastname@example.org of you are interested in sponsoring the GMG float.
Last year we took home the bacon and this year Sista Felicia, Bro-In-Law Barry and Ed Collard plan to make it better than ever. We will place your business or personal (non-political0 banner on the float and mention your business with thanks in each post about the building and parade photos and videos.
Our seagull had a 4 inch pipe sticking out it’s butt and it would shoot out Seagull Poop waterballoons filled with milk and flour.
We also tailgate before the parade so if you are a FOB and you have a GMG T-Shirt from year’s past or if you need one you can pick one up at the Good morning Gloucester/Khan Studio Gallery at Madfish Wharf to wear. We do a potluck tailgate before the parade in the parking lot of the high school before hand.
Here was our First Place Seagull-pooping Homie Float Last Year-
Thanks To Golden Living For The Sponsorship Last Year
Sunday is the day I spend with the Family, bringing the girls down to the beach to watch the races and greasy pole after covering every aspect I can for the days leading up to Fiesta.
That morning down the dock strolls Craig asking for an assignment for the day. Knowing that Adam Bolonsky, Sam Sartson and I had devoted a ton of video coverage to Saturday’s Greasy Pole I told Craig that the Parade and The Seine Boats could use some video coverage to round everything out. I was deep into the editing of three hours of footage that Adam had handed to me from Saturday in between making lobster deliveries to our restaurants and taking out boats and off Craig went.
Fast forward to that afternoon and I was pretty much resigned to watching the Sunday sporting events with the family and not taking the camera out too much except to report the winners via my smartphone so we could beat everyone else to getting the news out.
The Bean up on my shoulders at the PACKED Pavilion Beach yells out “Good Morning Gloucester!” And she is pointing front and center to the edge of the water directly in front of the Greasy pole. It was none other than Craig with his Mack-Daddy Camera with “Da Sticka” plastered on it’s side.
A nice feeling knowing I could somewhat take the foot off the gas of the month long Fiesta coverage knowing it was all in good hands with our great team of contributors.
Here is Craig’s Seine Boat Championship video and more-
Jo-Ann Castano took these pics at the Altar going over things with new contributor Craig Kimberly.
Novice gardener and Pleasant Street resident Jenna Howard has agreed to provide updates on the squash, peppers and other vegetables growing in her plot at the new Burnham’s Field Community Garden. The reports and photos will allow GoodMorningGloucester viewers to follow the garden’s progress with a weekly answer to the question, “What’s New in Jenna’s Garden?”

"The squash is taking over! It seems that every time we go to water our garden the squash has doubled in size yet again. Its leaves are now about 24 inches in diameter and it has started producing flowers and fruit! Did you know that squash blossoms are edible? Yup, that’s right, those pretty yellow flowers that you see growing from squash plants are not just a decoration. I’ve heard that they make for a tasty treat when battered and fried in a little oil—and they can also be eaten raw!"
My name is Max. I am a two-month-old boy kitten with a grey and white coat. I don’t want to brag, but my coat is really quite handsome. I have a big name for a little guy, but I will be good size when I am all grown. I am staying at the Cape Ann Animal Aid in Gloucester until I am adopted.
Please consider assisting us while we get ready this autumn to move into our new facility. If you would like to purchase a brick in memory or honor of someone – the fee is $100. See details at capeannanimalaid.com
Remember to visit me and the other cute kittens here at 260 Main Street in Gloucester. Please remember, they are cute; but none as cute as I am!!

I am sure this is a viral marketing video for Go Pro, but wouldn’t it be fun to teach Homie to do this over Gloucester?
The previous record was 29,332 so we beat that by a wide margin. Interesting that last year we set our yearly high total on the Monday after Fiesta as well with 19,888 views. The growth is bangin’ baby!

YES! I knew it! Meditation Helps!
All you Naysayers can kiss my…. Wait, deep breathe Paul, in in in in, now let it out.
The practice, which involves the continual repeating of a mantra, was found to reduce high blood pressure, cholesterol and thickening of the arteries. It is also protects against diabetes.
“This is a seminal finding,” said Dr Norman Rosenthal of the American government’s National Institute of Mental Health.
“The prevention of heart attack and stroke and actual lengthening of lifespan by an alternative
treatment method is exceedingly rare, if not unprecedented.
“If Meditation were a drug conferring so many benefits, it would be a billion-dollar blockbuster.” read more here: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/8600889/Meditation-can-cut-heart-attacks-by-as-much-as-half.html
On Sunday, I was following the parade, and as I walked up Chestnut St. with all my camera gear, a woman stopped me and asked “Are you a photographer?” with her Italian accent. “Coma taka picture of my family! Have some lasagna!” She lead me to her beautiful backyard where her family was feasting on Italian food. The woman (her name was Agatha) introduced me to the group and quickly assembled a photo shoot! Her 4 sisters were there, one just in from Italy and another with health issues. I took several photos as she changed the groupings. They graciously asked me to stay for food, but I promised to email the pictures, and was off to the parade.
I’m so glad Agatha stopped me. Special moments like this…that’s what it’s all about!
