Sista Felicia’s Marshmallow Peeps Easter Egg Suprise!

PrintscalDon’t you just love when inspiration strikes! Last week while shopping at Scalafini Bakery I noticed one of my favorite childhood Easter treats on the shelf for sale. The creative wheels in my head started turning and latter that afternoon I surprised my nieces and their friend Karlee Lorden with this Marshmallow Peeps Easter Egg Surprise! …And for the record it took 10 guesses before the girls guessed the correct filling inside the chocolate egg! They had a great time taking turns guessing during dinner time!

Eric Lorden Calls Out Ed Collard In A Rocky Neck Plunge Challenge

Here’s the list-

Friends of The Blog Who Said they Will Take The New Years Day Rocky Neck Plunge-

Joey

Nephew BJ (Beasley)

Paul Morrison (and his rubber ducky)

Patrick Ryan

Amanda Nash

Ed (I’m game for anything) Collard

Donna (I may be small but I can do anything) Ardizzoni

Eric Lorden

Who Else?

Rocky Neck Plunge Info from Brenda Malloy-

Thought it may be a good idea to give people some directions on exactly where the beach is that The Rocky Neck Plunge takes place. It is called Oak Cove Beach at the end of Stevens Way, neither of which names are commonly known to most, even on Rocky Neck!
When one is driving down Rocky Neck and bears right at Sailor Stan’s restaurant, you take the first street on the  left ‘Stevens Way’. This is a short street, 2 houses long, then you must go either right or left on Wonson St.  If you were to continue straight you go down the gravel path ahead of you, this leads to Oak Cove Beach where the plunge takes place.
Hope to see a big crowd, one and all are welcome!
PEACE!

Gloucester Exposure On CBS Around The World For Free With Jeff Schroeder

Jeff literally showed up around 7:30PM and the sheer number of Gloucester locations that we squeezed in was outstanding. Huge thank you to Mark Ring who took us out on the Stanley Thomas to the Greasy Pole and Mike Tupper who caught the Albino lobster and allowed us to release it for the show(we had been holding it in our tanks so his father in law could see it).

Eric Lorden Interviews Missy Hart From Sugar Mag’s

Missy said the only way I could air this is if I put in the disclaimer that Eric is an asshole.

So there you go-

For the record Missy had no disparaging remarks for the judges of the good Morning Gloucester Holiday Cookie Contest.  This is Eric trying to create a controversy that simply did not exist and Missy was most gracious in defeat.

For All You Bike Freaks

You know who you are.  The guys that wear the funny shorts that are way too tight and suck your balls right up into your body cavity.  The same guys that wear those funny space man hats and shoes that go clipity clop when you walk.  Yeah you-

There’s a biking event coming up that you won’t want to miss- The Great Brewers Gran Prix of Gloucester.

Eric and I like to joke with each other that we have nineheads.

Most people have foreheads, but big ugly guys like us have huge nineheads.

Would you just look at the space between his eyebrows and his hairline?

You could plaster a billboard up there.

Unfortunately for me, my ninehead is even bigger.
