Ok! It’s past 6pm and the Rapture didn’t come. Maybe next time.
Here’s the location in photos. It should be easy enough for most.
The Rock was left at: 7:29pm and 59 seconds.
Goodnite and Goodluck!
Work on the pinky schooner ARDELLE proceeded apace last week despite rain, wind and cold. Boat builder Harold Burnham predicts a launch in about 6 weeks!! Currently, the deck beams are being bolted down and the mast will soon be fitted out.
My niece is in the Peace Corps and has been in the Philippines since the
fall. She is in Coastal Resource Management and is helping their fishing
community with environmental protection and sustenance. She is in the
Southern Leyte region, which is below the main island that Manila is on,
and she is on a very remote island. I sent her a GMG sticker and every time
I write, I reminded her to take a pic for GMG. Well, she must have gotten
tired of my nagging, because she finally did! So you can add Philippines to
your growing list of "representation" !
Did you know that Meg is a regular GMG FOB who has been a devoted follower since the blog was only a few months old? Meg and her son, Freddo came into Khan Studio and the GMG gallery on Rocky Neck today to represent (and buy a Did You Know? book and a Sharon Lowe print). Meg, you may remember represented from China on the blog awhile back.

I know this story isn’t really Cape Ann oriented, but since lots of you will either be hosting or attending a wedding shower sometime this Spring/Summer, I thought this was a really clever idea.
This project comes from my friend Beth at www.hungryhappenings.com. I have posted a few of her ideas in the past, particularly at Halloween, because she is so creative but I think this idea takes the cake! If you need ideas for pretty much any themed party, check out her blog.
1 whole head (bulb) of garlic
1 teaspoon olive oil
2/3 cup blanched and slivered almonds
2 – 8 ounce blocks of cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese (or freshly grated Parmesan)
pinch of salt
optional: pinch of white pepper (don’t use black)
optional decorations: a tub of cream cheese, or edible flowers, or white cheese slices
4 1/2″, 3 1/4″, and 2″ round cookie cutters
food processor or an electric hand mixer
offset (angled) metal spatula
tin foil and plastic wrap
optional: piping bag fitted with a coupler and a #21 star tip
Combine the cream cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, roasted garlic, salt, and white pepper, if using, in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until creamy and smooth. Add nuts and pulse 10 times just to incorporate the nuts. If using an electric mixer, combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl, and blend until smooth and creamy, roughly chop the nuts and combine.
Chill for at least 2 hours, and up to several days.
You can now decorate your cake any way you’d like. Keep is simple and add a small cake topper, pipe cream cheese “frosting” in a lovely pattern on the cakes, cut slices of white cheese using mini cookie cutters into flowers or polka dots and attach them with a dab of cream cheese, or arrange edible flowers all over the cakes.
If the world doesn’t end today there will a post at 7:30pm today giving the Location of Tonights “Art, Rock”. This one will be too easy. After hunting for it, stop by the Kahn\Gmg Gallery to report in.
Last night 13 members of our wonderful community were honored by the Unitarian Universalist Church of Gloucester for their outstanding service to the community of Gloucester and beyond, including our boy Joey. It was a great gathering of people who love Gloucester and wonderful to see everyone getting the recognition they deserve. The Church did a wonderful job putting together the event.
Here is a video of Joey accepting his award.

One Page From Abby Ytzen’s Gloucester Fishing 101 Handbook
Click the picture for just one page from Abby’s Gloucester Fishing 101 book which she produced for seARTS Partner With an Artist Program. there will be many panels on eth walls here at our Dock- Captain Joe and Sons 95 East Main St Saturday from 10-2PM
Click on the picture below to see it full sized and learn some interesting facts for yourself. I for one was astounded at the breakdown of how many of each different type of commercial fishing boats there were. 42% of the fleet are lobster boats, I had no idea, but this is just one of the factoids that Abby has broken down. I think if you click on the picture you will get a sense of how easy she made it all to understand even though there is a ton of data in her book and in her exhibit, ANYONE could easily understand it.
-and this is all stuff that anyone that really takes pride in living in Gloucester or loves the fishing industry should know about.
So be sure to stop on by the dock Saturday 10-2PM
Here’s a map-
Abby Ytzen/Captain Joe and Sons seARTS Partner With An Artist Exhibit May 21st
Blown away! When you can get Pete Mondello, a fisherman for over 50 years excited about a Gloucester fishing industry exhibit you know you’ve done something special.
The way Abby has broken down such an incredible amount of fisheries statistics into an easily digestible visual/artistic/educational/fun presentation with everything you need to know about where Gloucester’s fishing industry has been with data and visuals bringing you right up to the present is nothing short of astounding.
This is an uncomplicated 101 guidebook to Gloucester’s fishing industry which has distilled all the data and will give any person a good basic understanding of what is going on around the Gloucester waterfront. The way it is broken down there is info for people 7 years old to 70 and it is all incredibly interesting. Every person who considers themselves a real “Gloucesterite” NEEDS to come see this exhibit.
