While There’s No Such Thing as a Bad Beach….

Yesterday, during a miraculous 30 minute session of sitting still at the beach, I fired off this short little post about Beach Pros and Cons….as I was contemplating which beach is “best” for my boys (ummm….and me).

http://goodmorninggloucester.wordpress.com/2014/07/22/does-size-really-matter/

So, today, I invite you to participate in this little summer poll

 

Please comment with additional answers if you’d like as it is impossible to adequately include all kinds of beach experiences!

 

 

 

FEMA flood INFO for Cape Ann From Kenny MacCarthy

Hi Joey,

Over the last few months, I’ve compiled a lot of information on the new FEMA regulations and flood zones here on Cape Ann. The links are all in one place on my blog. Just click here.

If you don’t need this, share it with someone that does. It’s a big deal and will really affect property values.

As always, let me know if I can help.

I am really amazed with the results I have gotten using low tunnel hoop gardening, an idea that i picked up from Eliot Coleman’s vegetable gardening book (from Maine).  Here is a picture today from part of my garden and it is only May 31st.   Goggle for more info or feel free to call

warm regards,

Dave Sag’s Blues Party to host Steve Sadler and Jimmy Scoppa tonight @ The Rhumb Line 5.29.2014

Dave says,

I am just wiped out from all the necessary machinations incurred oner the last weekend. Played music a lot and had to soak my aching body and head in a strong solution of Epsom Salts and Tito’s Vodka for two daze, just to get the banshees to wave a white flag. It helps to rub a little on the inside, too. Presently, I’m lucid enuf to egest this at you before the little people carry me away. At least, when I get Alzheimers,  I won’t remember that I forgot.
So, this Thursday  at the “newly renovated”* Rhumb Line, let’s welcome back Steve Sadler and Jimmy Scoppa. The commodious Steve S. has just returned from a successful campaign in Gaul, where jokes and sandwiches are divided in three parts.** No one knew enuf to clap. And Jimmy, late mechanic of T.H. and the Wreckage fame,  has got his scutum and pilum in fine shape for executing  masterful maneuvers against the enemy. These two guys will show you what it’s like to be an underrated glitar hero. Unbelievable! Can you say ooh-whee? Tintinnabulations supplied by the current hotshot  drummmbler of Broomful o’ Blooz, Mr. Chris Rivelli with myself on base. So launder your Spanx®, splash  on some Stetson© and join in on the fun!

*A countertop has been painted, and the lights have been turned off, making everybody look real good. See for yourself.
** just got done re-reading all of Woody Allen’s three old books. Maybe this is where I  stole everything. I was amazed at the similarities.

Dave says,

Put your class ring and your Snapjax® back on: It’s time for  that Marduk of musical mayhem: Mr. John Keegan™. Get ready to break bread and wind with our own locally grown master of Madhouse© as he storms the stage and causes great wailing and gnashing of teeth. You’ll never know what’s gonna happen or who’s gonna show up, so be ready for anything.
He’ll be bringing along a passel of kool kats to make it all worthwhile. First, there’s Brian Alex,on guitar, the girdle of the band Entrain. His first time here,so start whistling. Then there’s John Hyde, jazz snob and loving husband, on keys. and Marque Earley, tootin’  on tenor and baritone Sax, from Broomful ‘O Blues all served in an amusing compote stirred by former Broomful drummbler,Ephraim Lowell. and me, of course, on base. Come watch the train wreck!!
