My DNA results came in, and I found out Ed is my father! We had to celebrate with my Stones “rented” beer club mug!
Preparing and baking the special San Guiseppe bread is a family endeavor at Caffe Sicilia. Within an hour’s time, Maria, Nina, and Domenic created dozens of loaves of bread in religiously significant shapes of St. Joseph’s staff, angels, and even a carpenter’s saw, as well as beautiful and whimsical flowers, sun, snails, and bunches of grapes. While they artfully and deftly shaped and baked, they shared their St. Joseph’s stories for our camera. Thank you Maria, Domenic, and Nina!
Caffe Sicilia’s San Giuseppe bread is available for sale on March 18th, as well as by special order. Not only is it beautiful, but it is also out-of-this-world delicious!
Today was a joyful day and I am immensely appreciative. Many, many thanks to Maria, Nina, and Domenic from the bottom of my heart for their kindness and help with Gloucester’s St. Joseph film project.
Below are just some of the posts honoring last year’s participants. If you have not been contacted, please, we do not want to leave anyone out. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like your family’s story included in Gloucester’s Feast of Saint Joseph film project. Thank you.

Annual Review of Fluid Mechanics
An erodible bed sheared by a fluid flow, gas or liquid, is generally unstable, and bed forms grow. This review discusses the following issues, in light of the recent literature: What are the relevant dynamical mechanisms controlling the emergence of bed forms? Do they form by linear instability or nonlinear processes such as pattern coarsening? What determines their timescales and length scales, so different in air and water? What are the similarities and differences between aeolian and subaqueous patterns? What is the influence of the mode of transport: bed load, saltation, or suspension? Can bed forms emerge under any hydrodynamical regime, laminar and turbulent? Guided by these questions, we propose a unified description of bed-form growth and saturation, emphasizing the hydrodynamical regime in the inner layer and the relaxation phenomena associated with particle transport.
When I Heard the Learn’d Astronomer
BY WALT WHITMAN
When I heard the learn’d astronomer,
When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me,
When I was shown the charts and diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them,
When I sitting heard the astronomer where he lectured with much applause in the lecture-room,
How soon unaccountable I became tired and sick,
Till rising and gliding out I wander’d off by myself,
In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars.

Spring is on it’s way, and we are having 7 weeks of BANDS on Friday nights @ Giuseppe’s Ristorante & Piano Bar.
Joe Virgilio has “The Fava Beans ” for the St. Joseph Pasta….
Get to Virgilio’s on Main Street in Gloucester and get your supply…Don’t wait till next week they will be sold out!
Try as I may, I can’t come up with a good punchline, but I did get an excellent meal out of it!
The Surf and Turf Burger at the Yard House in Lynnfield totally hit the spot during “Mommy and Daddy really need an evening out alone” night on Saturday. Check out those chunks of lobster! So good.
The Spicy Tuna Roll was pretty unbelievable too. This photo doesn’t do it justice as we’d already ripped into it a bit, but it was huge and super yummy!
Good times, good eats….and the beer isn’t so bad either.

I said it before and I will say it again, some of my fondest memories growing up were the times spent with family and friends celebrating the Feast Of St. Joseph. Last night was amazing! Two of my biggest mentors surrounding the Feast of St Joseph came to lead us in prayer last night at our family altar. Thank you Rosalie Foti & Sefatia Giambanco Romeo Thaken, for making the night extra special. Having you, Marie Silva, Jen Anderson, Ann Margaret & Francis Ferrante all in at the same altar was truly a gift . What a great warm up for the official start of the 9 days of nightly novenas beginning tonight at 7:15. It truly was a night that all who attended will always remember.
Coffee Time with “The Godmother Sefatia”…If the photos could talk….
Thank you Parina~Godmother for making us laugh you have a heart of gold and we all adore you!
I especially want to thank my dear friend & GMG Contributor Craig Kimberley for filming last night…I’m sure he will be posting his amazing photography from last night on GMG soon.
Hope this email finds you well! This past week we spent some time in our favorite island in FL, Anna Maria Island. This island is just outside of Bradenton. While we were there we met up with our good friend Dee. Dee accompanied Diana Nyad during her swim from Cuba to Florida. Not only was she part of her team, but they used her boat as the guide boat for Diana during her swim. Needless to say we found a new home for GMG sticker! Here are the pictures of the boat. Thought you’d enjoy this.
The meat is super lean and the way they toast the buns at Leonardos takes any sub to the next level.
Leonardo’s also has some awesome french fries to go. They have the packaging thing down pat where you can still eat he fries a half hour later and they are not all soggy.
Two thumbs up.
