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

September 29, 2016 ~ trixy546

needymeds-slide-20161013-01

SeniorCare Inc. will host a presentation by Richard J. Sagall, M.D. regarding the difficulties many people face when trying to pay for their medications and options to explore to help on Thursday, October 13, 2016, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the SeniorCare offices located at 49 Blackburn Center in Gloucester, MA.

Everyday too many people face the dilemma of paying for healthcare or paying bills, rent and buying food. What they don’t know is that there may be help for them with their healthcare costs. NeedyMeds is the best single resource for information about these programs. In this presentation, Dr. Sagall will take you on an exploration of all the available types of help and how to best find programs.

Dr. Richard M. Sagall received his medical degree from the Medical College of Ohio at Toledo. After completing his family practice residency at the Eastern Maine Medical Center, Bangor, ME, he practiced family medicine and occupational medicine there for nearly 20 years. During that time he began NeedyMeds. Dr. Sagall has written articles on assistance programs and occupational medicine topics for a number of publications. He has given presentations on patient assistance programs and occupational medicine throughout the country.

There is no charge for the workshop.  For information and to reserve your space, contact Tracy Arabian at SeniorCare Inc. at 978-281-1750 x-508 or tracy.arabian@seniorcareinc.org.

DOWN THE GARDEN PATH

monarch-new-england-aster-coneflower-copyright-kim-smithThe New England Asters and Quilled Coneflowers blooming in our garden during the months of September and October were planted to provide sustenance for migrating Monarchs. Although both are native wildflowers, the bees and butterflies visiting gardens at this time of year are much more interested in nectaring at the New England Asters.

Plant the following four native beauties and I guarantee, the pollinators will come!

New England Aster (Aster novae-angliae)

Seaside Goldenrod (Solidago sempervirens)

Marsh Milkweed (Asclepias incarnata)

Common Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca)

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.

Brian Templeton Tonight! Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb LIne 8:30pm 9.29.2016…There shall be lots of dancing!

dave-sag-bw

It’s been a long time since Brian Templeton has graced our stage, so we’re getting out of wimp mode and into a strong belt of scotch. I’m putting my bass to the grindstone for a hone job to keep up with Mr. T’s ebullience. Brian’s the big guy with an acoustic guitar and a huge unmuffled glass pack voice. Every time he comes here it’s guaranteed to cure your IBS (irritable blues syndrome). See if you agree.

He’s draggin’ in that proton beam of a catarrist: Mr. Billy Loosigian and the Atomic Clock: Mr. David Mattacks. Ask your chirofractor if BT is right for you.
