Ocean Alliance and Seven Seas Whale Watch form a partnership
I’m working with Heather Lee to get the word out about Ocean Alliance’s new partnership with 7 Seas Whale Watch beginning this spring. The goal is to join forces in educating the public, not only about the humpbacks that 7 Seas knows so well, but also about the ocean pollution we study. We’re all really excited about working together for the first time and wanted to get the word out as the whale watching season approaches. Here is the announcement we posted http://www.whale.org/ocean-alliance-forms-partnership-7-seas-whale-watch/.
We were wondering if you could help us post it on GMG?
Thanks for all your help and support!!
Tomorrow is all about PASTA! Family and friends of all ages, will gather in my kitchen early tomorrow morning to make “The St. Joseph Pasta.” By the end of the day tomorrow all 100 Lbs. will be made and hung to dry for next weekends big feast.
The Semolina Flour has been purchased, and my husband, St. Barry is in the process of setting up the pasta drying racks. Tomorrow we will be live blogging from the kitchen…details will be posted tonight at 8pm
The Figli di Trappeto Club is hosting their 7th annunal International Womens Day Celebration ~ “Festa Della Donne” at The Gloucester House this evening. FOB and one of Gloucester’s most famous and loved reporters Carl Mckay-Stratton will be live blogging for GMG at tonight’s “SOLD OUT” event!
So I’m going through the GMG Blogroll (a list of links) in the right hand column of the blog (for those who subscribe and get the email version go to www.goodmorninggloucester.com and you can see what I’m talking about) and I start clicking through the list of links.
I hadn’t gone through the list for a while but what I found was that a huge number of the blogs that I link to in the GMG Blogroll either haven’t been updated in over a year or don’t even exist any more.
What a lot of people don’t realize is that it doesn’t matter how fantastic the content you create, there are a bazillion other websites out there that you are competing for eyeballs with. Many people think you can just create a website, register a domain and then magically a million people know about your blog and are anxious to find you. Well for probably 99.5% of people who start blogs my guess is that after pouring your heart and soul into it for a while and if it doesn’t pick up steam you look at your stats and it could be disheartening and you lose the drive to update it. Thud. End of story.
This isn’t to discourage anyone from starting a blog, but rather to celebrate the ones who have been doing it for a while and have kept at it.
This brings me to my buddy Bowsprite who I discovered back in the first months of creating GMG. How I found her and Marty’s son Brian and Bowsprite’s buddy Tugster was through a search for like minded bloggers who were blogging about industrial boats. They were all located in NY.
Our Marty Luster actually moved here after a two or three day visit to Gloucester with his blogging son Brian (Marty wasn’t a part of GMG yet) whose blog A Movable Bridge hasn’t been updated in far too long.
But Bowsprite has kept at it.
My dream is to have her up here and take over one of the months at the Goettemann residency on Rocky neck so she could illustrate Gloucester’s industrial ships and share her deep love for Industrial waterfronts with us. I’ve even written on her behalf to the selection committee but it hasn’t happened yet. Maybe some day.
Anyway, Kudos To Bowsprite for keeping at it. You really ought to check out here site, her stories and her illustrations. She’s one of my favs and an incredibly kind soul.
Check out her waterbog here-
and this from here visit to the dock to take a dip in Gloucester Harbor-
Bowsprite is an artist and blogger from the sixth borough in NY. Check out her incredible nautical illustrations by clicking this text
Who drives up from New Yawk to jump in Gloucester’s inner harbor for a leisurely swim in mid-November? Bowsprite, that’s who.

Show runs through March 27, 2014
“This show of works on paper consists of drawings in charcoal, pastel, and oil, as well as watercolor.
Some were done as sketches or studies for larger works, others as finished pieces in themselves.
The use of a variety of mediums helps me to take a fresh approach to familiar subjects”"
“At least when I get on the Boston train I have a good chance of landing in the South Station
And not in that part of the daily press which is reserved for victims of aviation.”
― Ogden Nash

Let’s welcome back that saucy Sympeglade of the (Mississippi) saxophonium and terroristic vocalist, Ms. Cheryl Arena. She’s got a sound big as her name. She’s just traded in her spurs and 15 gallon hat for a set of Uggs and a Sterno hand warmer. Yes, yes, she’s moved from politically insane Texass to the land of a thousand ironies here in Ma. Somehow a shoulder holster is a fashion no-no under a down vest. She’ll be riding into town this Thursday gunning for you!
Her posse consists of sidekick Noé something or other. Don’t know his last name but the numbers on his mugshot reads 019666. He’s the guitarist por favor.
Dynamo duties performed by that ultimate ululator on the skins, Mr. Ephraim Lowell. I’ll be crowding the plate. Still there at 8 p.m. to 11, when Noe bolts for the door to try to catch a ride to his next gig! See you then!
|THE RHUMB LINE BAR & RESTAURANT
40 Railroad Ave.Gloucester, MA 01930

The timing of the dinner is also geared toward allowing visitors to go to the Annual Rockport Public School Art Show at the Rockport schools’ art museum. The dinner costs $8 for adults and $5 for kids; the art show is free.

Sista Felicia ~ Dave attached a YouTube video about The Feast Of St. After watching it several times last night, I knew I had to share it with the GMG community today. Take a moment to read the beautiful story about the miraculous ways of St. Joseph’s. It brought tears to my eyes, and the Prayer of St Joseph, sung by Angelina song will be added to our St. Joseph prayer/song books this year.
