Reminder: Cape Ann Milkweed Project Seed Pickup and Information Day is Sunday, May 18th, from 9:30 to Noon

Monarch Butterflies Gloucester Massachusetts ©Kim Smith 2006Eastern Point during the Monarch’s southward migration in late summer.

The first Monarchs of Spring 2014 have been sighted in Massachusetts (Kingston), as has emerging milkweed. For the past week, a weather pattern has been in place that is perfect for the Monarchs northward migration. Powerful south winds pumped warm air northward and in conditions such as these, Monarchs are carried from southern regions more quickly northward.

Below is a map from the Journey North website illustrating favorable wind patterns for Monarchs.

Our milkweed and New England Aster seed pickup day is this coming Sunday from 9:30 to noon at Captain Joe and Sons. Captain Joe’s is located at 95 East Main Street and you can find directions posted on their website here. Thanks so much to Joey for hosting the event at the dock. Looking forward to seeing everyone!

Henry Cooper Submits Marina Evans Video from Granite Visions

Hi Kim,

The GMG post looks awesome, thanks for tagging Granite Visions in it. Granite Visions is a video production project between my friend Michael Kelly and myself. We have a few videos on our youtube channel: www.youtube.com/granitevisions. We’re working on a website.

One of our latest projects is a really great looking interview and 2 music videos featuring Cape Ann singer/songwriter Marina Evans. Any way we could get these on GMG?

Thanks,
Henry

Hi Henry,  I posted Unbound and provided the link so readers can check out your YouTube channel here. Best wishes with your new website!

 

Lisa Marie Tonight @ The Dave Sag’s Blues Party!

dave sag rl mo

She’s back….! That boisterous belter of the blues: Ms. Lisa Marie. Just back from the cotton harvest in Mississippi, she’s ready to drop that eleven foot sack on your big toe. One of our faves, this gal has the wherewithal to get your intestines in a double clove hitch! Till you cry “ooh whee!”
  She’ll be bringing along her posse of sympathetic players including “Silvertone” Steve or is it “Silverfish?” on guitar, Johnny Juxo, a new guy for me, on kleeboards, and Steevee “HaHa” Chaggaris, on defibrillators. I’ll be on base, in the corner, and hopefully, in the pocket.  Do come! Our new hours are 8:30 to 11:30.
And like Dave Brown says:” We are nothing without you!” I mean it. Free Serutan® to the first 300 contented fans!

Tuesday night’s Grilled Mahi-Mahi dinner was caught off the coast of Hatteras NC by my husband Barry’s and his buddy Ralph  during their week of male bonding and fishing!  I’m super excited to have fresh Mahi-Mahi, Grouper, and Golden Pile fish in the freezer!

Only in Gloucester!

Only in Gloucester! The two ads appeared side by side in yesterday's Gloucester Daily Times. National Geographic is looking for new tuna boats, captains and crew who are tough and outgoing. We've got plenty of fishermen just like that here. www.WickedTunaCasting@gmail.com The Seaport Grille menu, left, lists their weekly specials. My favorite is the lobster roll with fries (slaw can be substituted). It contains the meat of one lobster served in a fresh Virgillio's roll and is priced at $9.95. Seaport also has the best view of Gloucester's "working harbor."

While dining at the Seaport Grille one night, I saw a huge tuna being offloaded across the channel under the movie lights (right). It's great to live here. www.cruiseportgloucester.com
