Cape Ann Vernal Pond Team Update

Logos.AIThis is going to be a busy month.
We have a bunch of new furniture for our new office, so…
We will need to assemble it. Shelving units, file cabinets, desks.
Are you halfway handy? Well then:
Thursday May 15, 2014 Start time 4:30pm
Put It Together Party
186 Main Street, Gloucester
I have been told there will be music and snacks.

The big office move is scheduled for this next weekend:
We (CAVPT and Kestrel) are moving our office from 15 Lexington Ave. in Magnolia to 186 Main St. Gloucester in Brown’s Mall right across from the police station. The plan is to do this on Saturday, May 17th. We will need help with this. If you have a truck or a van, we could use that too.

Start gathering your donations for the Big Giant Cape Ann Vernal Pond Team/Kestrel Educational Adventures Yard Sale.
Saturday May 24, 2014, 9am-1pm. St. Peter’s Square, Gloucester
Bring your donations to St. Peter’s Square at 7am on the morning of the sale. No TVs or computers please. We will need some volunteers to work at the sale too. And, we will have some stuff at our Magnolia office which will need to be moved from the office to the sale early in the morning on Saturday. How early? Depends on how many volunteers and trucks we get.

Next show:
Sunday May 18, 2014 2-3pm
Snakes of New England and the World- one hour live animal presentation.
The barn at Castle Hill on the Crane Estate, Ipswich MA
Guess what?… We’ll need volunteers.

And… here’s something:
As a result of the recent article in the Boston Globe Sunday Magazine, ‘Two Rick Roths Walk Into A Bar…’, Rick Roth and I have been invited to be on WGBH, Boston Public Radio on Friday May 16th from 1:35-2pm. Tune in and hear me make a fool out of myself in a new medium.

We need lots of volunteers in the next couple of weeks, so please get in touch and let me know if you can help out.
Thanks, Rick

we only have one earth, save it

Spring Has Sprung at Willowdale! FREE Event in the Garden Tuesday Night!

Pink Tulips Willowdale Estate ©Kim Smith 2014The tulips are at peak perfection, and just in time for my Artist Spotlight Event! The warm weather this weekend coaxed many to bloom, and the cooler temperatures predicted will keep them very pretty.

Carpenter Bee Butt

carpenter bee butt

They are big, industrious and often confused for bumblebees, but you don’t have to fear their butts.  Male carpenter bees can be very aggressive but are harmless since they have no stinger, and females have stingers but are docile so seldom sting unless caught in the hand or harassed.  They do not eat wood but do excavate tunnels to nest and lay eggs in.  This carpenter bee is checking out the hull of this boat at the Marine Railways as a  possible nesting site.

Cribbage High Rollers

My roommate here at the rehab plays cribbage once a week with his friend, a facility volunteer. They play for fun and share gourmet jelly beans during the game. Cribbage was a popular card game in 17th century England, where it's the only game allowed to be played in pubs for money. The US Navy Submarine Service has long called cribbage its "unofficial pastime." I've got to try it...
