We’ve been averaging between 55,000 and 68,000 a day now.

About six months ago I think we were averaging around 48,000 a day.  Now we are almost consistently doing double the number of Gloucester Residents according to the last Census (28,789)source wikipedia census data

 June 20, 2011 was the first day we ever surpassed the number of Gloucester residents.  Now we’re averaging double that on a consistent basis with some days bumping up against 80 and 90,000.

Doodads and Gadgets

doodads and gadgets

There was a boat at the Railways yesterday sporting all these strange looking doodads and gadgets.  Does anyone have any idea what kind of boat it might be and what all those doodads and gadgets are for?  I assume they are navigational things, but I don’t recall seeing anything looking quite like this before.

Ardelle DC 2012

Ardelle sails to DC & back!
Harold Burnham  & Friends
Tuesday, April 9, 7:30 p. m., Waterline Center, Essex Shipbuilding Museum, 66 Main Street, Essex, MA
Admission $8 members, $10 nonmembers
In 2012, Harold Burnham of Essex was awarded one of nine, 2012 National Endowment for the Arts Heritage Fellowships.  The Shipbuilding Museum is fortunate to have him and many of the group who worked on building Ardelle, and who also sailed with him to Washington DC, to talk and show their photos of the trip.
Ardelle left Gloucester on Sept. 25 and returned in middle October.  In between those days, there were harrowing winds and waves, a sail through the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal, lots of goose & pies to eat, and the proud feeling of breezing up the Potomac river on a beautiful day to receive a prestigious honor. 
On the return trip, Ardelle sailed to Fort McHenry in Baltimore, site of the battle that inspired our national anthem.  There she took part in a mock skirmish with other large and small sailing ships.  Come and learn more about these and other adventures of Ardelle’s trip to Washington to accept this impressive award.
Please join us on Tuesday, April 9, 2013 at 7:30 p. m. in the Waterline Center at the Shipbuilding Museum, Admission $8 members, $10 nonmembers.  Light refreshments will be served.

RENDEZ-VOUS WITH FRENCH CINEMA 9 of France’s best films play in Gloucester from March 29 to April 6

From March 29th to April 6th, The Cape Ann Community Cinema at 21 Main Street in Gloucester will celebrate some of the best French films of the year with its annual "Rendez-Vous With French Cinema" line-up:
Friday, March 29th @ 7:30pm
You Will Be My Son (Director: Gilles Legrand, 2012, France, 102m)
Instead of grooming his son to inherit his lucrative wine-growing business, an imperious vintner (Niels Arestrup) looks to a talented California-based grower, rendering a harvest of jealousy and worse. Legrand’s narrative takes on Shakespearean qualities, driven by a titanic performance by Arestrup, while the film’s observations on the wine-growing business are thoroughly engrossing.
Saturday, March 30th @ 7:30pm
Thérèse Desqueyroux (Director: Claude Miller, 2012, France, 110m)
The late Claude Miller’s final film elegantly adapts François Mauriac’s modern classic of a woman’s growing resistance to her suffocating marriage, and showcases a remarkable Audrey Tautou as the disturbed titular heroine. With Gilles Lelouche, Anaïs Demoustier, Catherine Arditi.
Sunday, March 31st @ 6:30pm
Augustine (Director: Alice Winocour, 2012, France, 102m)
Based on a true case, writer-director Winocour has adapted a true case of a progressive 19th century doctor/therapist and his unusual patient into a study of personal wills, hidden desires and reversals of fate. A maid who suffers from seizures is sent to a mental hospital, where she appears to be condemned for life until Professor Charcot finds in her the possibilities of testing his advanced notions of the sources of so-called “hysteria.” Soko as Augustine and Vincent Lindon as Charcot deliver astonishing performances.

Monday, April 1st @ 6:30pm

Journal de France (Directors: Raymond Depardon & Claudine Nougaret, 2012, France, 100m)
Depardon’s brilliant self-portrait (co-directed by his longtime collaborator and sound engineer Claudine Nougaret) takes a surprising point of view on the great documentarian’s life—not only as a filmmaker, but as a photographer of expressive precision, capturing the entirety of French society over the decades. The patience of this image-maker’s practice is testament to an alternative to the hyper-fast, instant delivery of digital images that now dominates the culture.
Tuesday, April 2nd @ 7:30pm
Rich Is The Wolf (Director: Damien Odoul, 2012, France, 82m)
Perplexed at the sudden disappearance of her husband, a wife watches hours of videotape that he’s recorded over the previous seven years to piece together some clues. Odoul’s most daring feature, whose color and black-and-white images are culled from his own videotaping, confirms his place as one of France’s genuinely exploratory filmmakers. Stars Marie-Eve Nadeau, Damien Odoul.

Wednesday, April 3rd @ 7:30pm

You, Me and Us (Director: Jacques Doillon, 2012, France, 136m)
The tentative nature of relationships is explored in dazzling, three-dimensional fashion in this cleverly written and directed roundelay between current and former lovers. Aya, the mother of a bright young daughter, struggles to come to terms with the end of her marriage, while hoping to have a child with her new lover. Stars Lou Doillon, Samuel Benchetrit, Malik Zidi, Olga Milshtein.
Thursday, April 4th @ 7:30pm
The Suicide Shop (Director: Patrice Leconte, 2012, France, 79m)
Master filmmaker Leconte makes a startling and unforgettable departure from his previous work with this whimsical animated musical about a family business offering certain special “end-of-life” services. Rather than succumbing to a purely mordant perspective, the movie switches course and mood, driven by the family’s perpetually happy child whom they can’t control. Based on the novel by Jean Teule and with the voices of Bernard Alane, Isabelle Space, Kacey Mottet Klein, Isabelle Giami, Laurent Gendron.
Saturday, April 6th @ 2:30pm
Granny’s Funeral (Director: Bruno Podalydès, 2012, France, 100m)
Although he made no effort to see his grandmother in her waning years, pharmacist Armand (director Bruno Podalydès’ brother and co-writer Denis) must now deal with her funeral arrangements. This is awkward enough, but nothing like his emotional swings between a wife he can’t quite part from and a lover he can’t quite commit to, in a comedy stamped with the Podalydès brand of caustic, Gallic wit. With Valerie Lemercier, Isabelle Candelier, Catherine Heigel and Benoit Hamon.
Saturday, April 6th @ 5:00pm
Persécution (Director: Patrice Chéreau, 2012, France, 100m)
A brutally intimate close-up of the moment-to-moment dissolution of a love affair, this psychological drama stars Duris as a brooding, bestubbled Parisian juggling a hot-and-cold relationship with a jet-setting careerist (Gainsbourg) and the intrusions of a middle-aged male stalker who has claimed him as the love of his life. Fueled by emotionally charged dialogue and nervy, passionate performances, "Persécution" continues Chéreau’s masterful observation of human desire in all its intricacies and contradictions. Starring Romain Duris, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jean-Hugues Anglade.
Tickets for all shows are $10.00 adults, $8.50 students and seniors (60+) and $7.00 for Members. More information about these and any of the Cinema’s other offerings can be found at www.CapeAnnCinema.com.
