Love seeing the growing number of surfers along Cape Ann beaches. Perhaps Hurricane Gaston will bring the Big Swells!
Tom, Brian and Heath Ellis hold hold one of many checks, and donations for the Kay Ellis Scholarship fund which will benefit students in Tourism and Hospitality.
A pour of love turned out to honor Kay and start the scholarship fund.
Songs were written and sung in her name.
Following our son-in-law Matt’s gorgeous, controversial, and highly successful ad for Volvo, titled “Wedding,” he has created the evocative and beautiful “Song of the Open Road.” Watch it here ~
From ULYSSES, by Alfred Lord Tennyson.
Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and tho’
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are,–
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Here’s a link to a video John Cooney made about Awesome Gloucester, an organization that has quietly raised nearly $40,000 and distributed it to the community in various ways over the last three years. The twenty trustees each chip in $50 a month, review and vote for their favorites out of the 10 to 15 proposals we receive every month, and then hold a public Pitch Night to decide among the top three. The best idea gets $1,000 in cash. It’s very simple to make a proposal, fun to attend Pitch Night (3rd Mondays at Gloucester House (Thanks, Lenny)), and sometimes we are looking for new trustees. Even more info at our website.
This is going to be a huge clean-up. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to let us know which area you would like to help out. We look forward to hearing from lots of great citizens of Gloucester. Please bring your gloves and we will supply the yellow bags. If you have a picker it is always helpful.
These two were here for quite a while watching the backhoe….guess boys will always be fascinated with trucks and heavy equipment lol!!
Back in June I had a work gathering at a friend’s house and promised to bring something. After working all day and then bringing the boys home to Rockport before heading back up to Hamilton, I didn’t leave enough time to finish preparing what I had originally planned to bring. So…. I picked up the phone. I called Mike’s Place in Gloucester and ordered a 1/2 tray Antipasto. It was ready in 15 minutes, it was HUGE, it came with lots of homemade pita pockets, and it was only about $25.
As simple as it was, it was a big hit. And…there was a ton left over to bring to work the next day to feed the troops.
Once this summer I ordered the same salad tray again and packed it a few days in a row for easy beach lunches…and for a couple quick light dinners. The only downside is that the salad is SO incredibly big that we could probably eat it two meals per day for five days in a row….but that would be a bit monotonous….even though it is yummy enough to do so.
After heading back to work full-time yesterday to plan for a new school year…and with the boys having a 1/2 day soccer camp each day all week long…the same 1/2 tray antipasto was calling my name. It made for a nice dinner last night for all four of us, it will be my lunch today at work, it will be waiting for the boys after 4 hours of soccer this afternoon, and will probably be lunch and dinner again once or twice Wednesday and/or Thursday.
Long story short…. order one! Perfect during a super busy week….especially when it is too hot to cook.
