GMG Alternative Energy series: It’s Official! Kate and I Are Walkin the Solar Walk- Just Signed On With Tim Sanborn For Solar at Our House!

image

Signed the papers today!

If you’ve been following the blog for the past three years then you know I’ve been obsessed with alternative and renewable energy.  When it came down to putting money where my mouth is, you can see where we’re signing on with Tim Sanborn and his company Cazeault Solar and Home.  Tim has lived in Gloucester his whole life and every single person I’ve spoken with has nothing but the best things to say about him.

I’ve talked to a ton of people, done the first hand interviews with local people that I know and EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM has nothing but glowing reviews for Tim and Cazeault Solar.  The only thing they say they would do differently is do it SOONER and do MORE Solar.  Eliminating the electric bill or being cash flow positive in every instance is just too much of a no-brainer for me to pass up.  If you don’t like money, don’t do solar.  If you don’t like the environment, don’t do solar.  I’ve been dying to be able to do it and now instead of me telling you about everyone else’s success stories, now we’ll be able to share with you our experience, step by step.

WoooooHOOOOOOO!!!!

We’re in!

Call Tim right now and schedule your Solar consultation- 774-228-3411

Sawyer Free Library Art Auction

The Sawyer Free Library will hold the Annual Art Auction on Wednesday, October 5, 2016. The Silent Auction will take place in the Matz Gallery from September 6 through October 3, to give visitors an opportunity to see the exhibit of paintings and bid early. The Vocal Auction will be held, at 7:00 PM. A preview party will precede the auction. Refreshments will be served and music by Jeannine Lynch and Peter Phillips. The auctioneer is Jack Good, who has volunteered  for over a decade. His humor and encouragement to bid adds to the delightful entertainment of the evening.

But the best part is the works of art, displayed in the Adolph Matz Gallery located in the main lobby of the library. Great interest is generated throughout the month as the bid book fills up. The final vocal auction is always an exciting event. This year there is seventy paintings in a variety of mediums, from oil, to watercolor, to collage; all original. The artists are all local and the subject is generally Cape Ann. It’s a great way to buy a small painting for yourself or as a gift to others. Noted artists such as Ray Crane, Jeff Weaver, Peter Tysver, Theresa Wonson, Carole Loiacono, Bob Blue and Don Gorvett are represented along with many artists who regularly contribute paintings. This year the quality of the artwork is awesome. Proceeds to the Art Advisory Fund provide scholarships, art supplies, art books and much needed supplies.This has been an important fundraiser for the library for many years, and its success is due greatly to the ongoing support by the contributing artists and loyal supporters.

So check out this year’s paintings and place a bid in the Silent Auction and then come to the live vocal auction to support your bid. If no one bids higher that your “Book” bid in the Silent Auction, your bid will be successful. But come to the live auction and enjoy the competition, food, music and find yourself a charming painting for a great bargain that will give you or a friend a lifetime of pleasure.

HAVE YOU SEEN THIS LITTLE BLUE HERON ON CAPE ANN?

little-blue-heron-egretta-caerulea-cape-ann-copyright-kim-smithThe Little Blue heron is common in the Southeast and only the second time I have spied this migrant on Cape Ann. I am curious to know if any of our readers have seen this pretty heron–how often, where, and at what time of year, if so. The Little Blue Heron in the photo was fishing in the shallow pond water with the Snowy Egrets. Whereas the Snowies have an energetic method of foraging, stirring up the bottom with their feet, dashing and diving, the Little Blue stood stock still observing the minnow’s movement in the water. The moment it caught a glimpse of me, off it flew, and did not return.little-blue-heron-massachusetts-egretta-caerulea-copyright-kim-smithlittle_bliue_heron_map_bigLittle Blue Heron range map
