Bernie in Haiti Question

Hi Joey and Others at GMG,
I’m a nurse and
love the photo of Bernie in Haiti with her GMG bumper
sticker. I’m posting it up in my office where lots of other nurses visit
and I know everyone’s going to love the photo too and want to know more about
Bernie and her mission. Can you share? Thanks.
Peg O’Malley.

Snow Scenes around Gloucester From Bob Quinn

Whale Sighting


Whale Sighting at Bean & Leaf

An extremely happy whale has been spotted just outside Bean & Leaf on Bearskin Neck. This sculpture is attributed to uber-Rockporter Tom (he’s the guy who’s been walking around with the snow shovel for the last 8 weeks digging everybody out downtown). Stop by Bean & Leaf to check it out in person – and get a cup of coffee to sustain you while you’re at it!
