Daisy Nell & Capt .Stan with their band Crabgrass @ One World Coffeehouse – 4/18/15

LCrabgrass Jack Stan Pat Daisy-001ocal folkie favorites Daisy Nell and Capt. Stan with their band Crabgrass will play their unique brand of music at their hometown coffeehouse, One World, on April 18, at 8 PM. For coffeehouse night, the street level of the Universalist Church is transformed into an intimate performance space, a favorite of many performers from near and far. Daisy Nell and Capt. Stan,  are no strangers to this stage, who, along with Pat Conlon and Jack Schwartz, have played there annually since the early 1990’s.Daisy and Stan at Pete Seeger Sing Out

Essex native Daisy Nell is no stranger to the stage, having started out at the North Shore Music Theater at the age of 12 in a production of Red Mill. Since then, she has been playing her guitar and banjo in every venue from nursery schools to high schools, museums to the high seas. She is an educator, maritime historian, founding member of the Gloucester Schooner Festival and the voice of the annual schooner parade on Labor Day weekend. Now an author of 5 children’s books, Daisy says, “Working with kids is what gives true meaning to a life in music.” Her school residencies, CD’s, and concerts have infected generations with the love of folk music and singing. For the past 18 years, Stan Collinson has been her musical mate, and together they make the folk music that takes you on a musical voyage, carried away for an evening. Pat Conlon on mandolin and harmonica and Jack Schwartz on bass make up the band, known to them as Crabgrass, which is a reference to the bluegrass roots of both Pat and Jack, combined with the maritime aspects of much of the Daisy & Stan repertoire. Capt. Stan says, “You can take what we sing with a large grain of salt!”

The concert on April 18 will feature a special new song that Daisy has crafted for local music fan and photographer, Nat Stevens, who commissioned a song for his great grandfather’s schooner. Other aspects to look forward to this year will be a set of blues and swing tunes that the band has loved for many years.

Coast Guard Gloucester to the Rescue! 03/30/2015

Coast Guard Gloucester to the Rescue! 03/30/2015

BOSTON — Coast Guard search and rescue crews from Station Gloucester, Air Station Cape Cod and the Coast Guard Cutter Ocracoke rescued nine crewmembers from the Canadian tall ship Liana’s Ransom 58 miles east of Gloucester, Monday.

Watchstanders at the Sector Boston Command Center received notification at 12:35 a.m. that the vessel’s engines were disabled and its sails were wrapped around the mast.

As the weather deteriorated, and seas reached nearly 10 feet, Sector Boston launched two 47-foot motor lifeboat crews from Station Gloucester to tow the vessel back to Gloucester. Once on scene, the boat crews connected the tow, but the rough sea conditions caused the tow line to break.

The motor lifeboats crews directed the crew of Liana’s Ransom to don immersion suits and to prepare to abandon ship about 30 miles east of Gloucester and a Coast Guard MH-60 Jayhawk Helicopter from Air Station Cape Cod was diverted to assist.

The nine passengers were transferred from Liana’s Ransom to the Coast Guard motor lifeboats. One man suffered a head injury when leaping from Liana’s Ransom and was airlifted to Massachusetts General Hospital by the Jayhawk helicopter crew.

The Station Gloucester crews returned to the station with the eight remaining crewmembers. A locator beacon was left on Liana’s Ransom for tracking and the Coast Guard Cutter Ocracoke is en-route to evaluate towing the vessel to port.

“It was fortunate for the crew of the vessel that the owner reached out to us,” said Jay Woodhead, the command duty officer at Sector Boston’s Command Center. He said with winds gusting to 30 knots, it was unsafe for them to stay aboard.

Watchstanders at the Sector Boston Command Center received notification at 12:35 a.m. of the vessel being disabled and only had sporadic use of the starboard engine and generator with the vessel's sails wrapped around the mast and was requesting Coast Guard assistance.

TAH-DAH, Spring….and Roy Moore Lobster Co.

Marlin and I came upon a sight for sore eyes this afternoon on our walk through Rockport.

We were both pretty excited to see the one and only Kenny Porter…and crew…wrapping up the official Day #1 of the 2015 season at Roy Moore Lobster Co.   Fantastic!

Now we just need Helmut’s Strudel and an ice cream joint or two to open up and we can get on with our happy warmer weather lives.  Winter is over and signs of spring are everywhere!

More Reasons to Get Fit Gloucester!  

A Study Showed that Fit Middle Aged Men Were Found to Have Lower Risk of Colon and Lung Cancer! 

In the news, March 26th… a study published on-line by the peer-reviewed Journal of the American Medical Association/JAMA Oncology showed a link between cardiovascular health and a decreased incidence of  colon and cancer.

These findings were first presented June 2, 2013 at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting in Chicago, Ill. The lead researcher, Dr. Susan Lakoski* reported at that time, “While poor fitness is already known to predict future cardiovascular disease, this is the first study to explore fitness as a marker of future cancer risk prognosis,” (*Susan Lakoski, M.D., assistant professor of medicine and director of the cardiovascular prevention program for cancer patients at the University of Vermont/Fletcher Allen Health Care.)

Then there’s SEO, social media and email, blogs and media buys.

Where do you start, and what should you expect for results? Can you do it yourself or assign this job to someone on your team? Should you hire an in-house expert or an outside agency to help you? Can your website designer do the job?

While each organization’s situation is different, there are some basic strategies every company should master. In this presentation, we will take a management view and separate the truth from the myths and rumors. We’ll highlight important trends and help you focus in the promising, challenging world of Internet marketing.

About the presenter: Hans Riemer has over 30 years of domestic and international experience working in marketing and sales for business-to-business technology companies – from startups to members of the Global 500.
