CNN, Memories, and a Shirt

SUshirtWM5025I confess, in my several months of confinement in medical facilities and at home, I’ve become a hopeless news junkie. The current scandal is about sketchy courses for athletes at the University of North Carolina. The so-called “paper classes” did not require attendance and had no professors – students just got a good grade. When at Syracuse University, I was required to take one science class, so I signed up for Physics 101. Upon entering the huge lecture hall, I saw a lot of really big guys. The course material was below high school level. The students called it “football physics.” I did my work and got an A.

What made me think about my connection to this breaking news was an old SU t-shirt. I bought it from the college catalog in the early 1980’s, crammed into the back of a drawer, as I became too fat to wear it. It fits great now because I’ve lost 80 pounds. I’m thinking that UNC is not the only college padding their teams.

Thank You To The Person Who Called Out My Insensitive Post

Last week I posted something that was a definite use of poor judgement. I can admit when I’m wrong and in that case I was definitely wrong.

Not going to bring up what it was about but wanted to thank the person who wrote in the comment and opened my eyes to the insensitivity I displayed on the subject.
Since I don’t have that person’s email address I hope they see this post of thanks and apology.

Your comments weren’t simply brushed aside, I’ve thought long and hard about them and am extremely remorseful for having written it in the first place.

So thanks again.

Live Blogging: Market Basket Shuts Down

It felt very creepy yet calming at the Basket a few minutes ago. Some might it was bordering on pre apocalyptic.

As we walked through in silence, the only noise being the shuffle of people’s feet and the squeaky wheels of the carts, I realized just how loud all the compressors really are when all the power is running.

The shut down was happening as we shopped. Slowly all of the isles were blocked in the frozen sections, then the curtains cam down on almost everything.

We managed to escape with the goods we grabbed, and swooped up some Halloween candy on our way out before we had to start chopping off Zombie heads!  Spoooooooky!

Last Night Reporting In Nor’ Easter !









The Crew Michael Oppelt , Mikey Stevens And Myself … Yup where CRAZY!!! :)

Epic Solar Eclipse a total Bust for Cape Ann


Tonight you will see photos just like this from all over North America where it is not raining.


Actually, even if it wasn’t raining Gloucester would still lose out because the shadow cast by the moon starts in Worcester at sunset and heads west to California and we need the rain. :-)


You Still Have Time to Get to The Studio

studio still open

In case you didn’t know, the Studio Restaurant on Rocky Neck is still open. Starting this week, they will be open Friday-Sunday 11:30am-11:30pm and may only be open for a couple more weeks, so if you didn’t have an opportunity to go this summer, or it was too crowded and you couldn’t get in, now is your chance.
