    Snapshots from Recent Treks Around Eastern Point

    In preparation for my adventure to Mexico to film the Monarchs, nearly every afternoon I have been “hiking” around Eastern Point. According to my car odometer, from the Niles Beach parking lot to the lighthouse and back is just a little over two miles. I realize that I must look fairly comical with headphones, hiking boots, and loaded down with a full backpack, all while trying to dodge the black ice. The walk is always beautiful–the freezing temperatures and icy roads not so much!

    One Evening in May

    The Annisquam Village Library has sent out this notice. Elinor’s last play reading was a true delight. This one may be even better.  All GMG readers know Elinor from the wonderful photos she submits regularly to the blog, under Squam Creative.  Now you can get to know her as a playwright and director too.

    On February 21st, ONE EVENING IN MAY written and directed by local author and resident, Elinor Teele, will be presented in a reading with fellow actors in the Library at 8 o’clock. Annisquam thespian, Beebe Nelson, will be one of the participants.
    The plot follows the fortunes of the Greenwood family over the course of one magical May night. Nick, the patriarch, is attempting to keep crows from devouring his rare cultivar. Nora, his wife, is trying to ensure his wearing trousers. Rose, their daughter and an army veteran, is at war with her precocious son, Will, who is at odds with her mustachioed partner, Peter. Lust, lunacy ad a duel or two must ensue before love can conquer all.

    iphone-6-concept
    Right in step with our boy Joey’s advice/predictions about the state of iPhone in the coming years, here’s a little info. Looks like the iPhone 6, a new phablet, and the next iOS may be out by the summer. I know how this stuff goes, so a grain of salt needs to be applied here. But, if your a Mac/Apple geek (or slave), you may enjoy the latest news. BTW, rumors of having 2K resolution screens this year??? Whaatt???!!! Yes I’m a resolution slut! Enjoy folks!

    This links will give you the “scoop” on what may be coming for the iPhone.

    This link below is awesome. If you know your up for a new phone this year, this will save an additional $50 no matter what model you buy, yep anything! The catch, you have to buy at BEST BUY of course, and you must reserve your coupon…oh well!
