I See Your Matching Sunrise and Raise You Two Matching Sunsets!

John Wheeler writes-

So Paul Morrison and Paulie Walnuts took pictures of the sunrise Saturday within minutes of each other. Saturday I went to the rocks off Old Penzance Rd. to get shots of the moon rise at Thachers Island. The moon was covered by clouds, which turned into great sunset pics. I believe my sunset shot facing west, is the same sunset taken by Gloucester Bytes from Niles Beach.

The clouds over Thachers Island was taken at 19:12:03
The sunset picture facing west was taken at 19:13:03
My camera is 3:39 fast, compared to my computer.

Tosh

My name is Tosh, I am a short-haired grey-and-tan boy kitten who is 11 months old.   I am very gentle and a little scared of noises, but once I am adopted and in my new home, I think I will be just fine!

Here is your opportunity to have lots of fun!!!

Pacific City Oregon Doesn’t Have A Local Dory As Beautiful As Ours So They Use Len Burgess’ Photo of A Gloucester MA Grand Banks Dory In Their “Dory Days” Promotion

Len Writes-

Pacific City, Oregon, used my Gloucester Dory shot for
its ‘Dory Days’ promotion. I guess it hasn’t got a ‘real dory’ there…

No credit to Len for the photo- poor form but I guess when they are so lazy that they use a Northeast Grand Banks Dory to represent a Northwest festival that’s what you get.  I wonder how many other times the web person for the Visit Pacific City website grabs other peoples photos without crediting them?

Hi Joey, here’s the original…

Topfield Fair’s Mrs. Essex County Pageant Seeks Contestants

From the Hamilton Wenham Patch-

The Mrs. Essex County Pageant will crown the 41st Mrs. Essex County at this year’s Topsfield Fair.

Through the years, hundreds of women have entered the contest for the honor of representing the Essex Agricultural Society at local events and serving as hostess of the Topsfield Fair. It is not a beauty competition – the Mrs. Essex County Pageant invites entries of married women living in Essex County, over the age of 18, with general appearance, poise, outgoing personality and spirit of volunteerism.
