GMG Alternative Energy Series- One Year With Cazeault Solar Energy: Sash Ludwig and Craig Dulong From Lanesville


In this video we talk to Sash Ludwig and Craig Dulong about their real world financial experience and results after the one year anniversary of having life long Gloucester Resident Tim Sanborn’s Cazeault Solar installed at their home in Lanesville.

Call to talk to Tim Sanborn From Cazeault Solar Home at 978-281-4625  He’s local and he’s a straight shooter.


This is the Solar Panel Design Tim Came Up With For Sash and Craig’s House-


Actual chart of Sash and Craig’s energy production using Cazeault Solar which produced more electricity than they consumed over this past year-


They actually get checks for their solar production in addition to having not paying for electricity over the course of the year.  Cazeault Solar estimations of what their system would produce were actually conservative and the energy produced was 13% more than they had estimated when they worked up the numbers.  They beat the estimates by 13%

Gloucester’s Tim Sanborn Owns Cazeault Solar & Home and Explains How Solar Is A Complete No-Brainer Investment

Also Sash wanted to add-

Hey Joey,

It was great to finally meet you in person.  You do such good work in and for the community!

I regret that what I did not say about Tim was that although we wanted solar, we bought Tim. It was Tim that sold us- we already knew we wanted the system but it was his integrity, transparency, enthusiasm and knowledge that convinced us to go with Tim and Cazault.  It was the best decision we could have made because not only has he continued to service us and our system but we have become friends and I want to introduce him to as many people as possible to get more solar systems going on Cape Ann.  It is where we need to be!

In reflection of the piece you shot I hope that was conveyed- that was the most important thing I wanted to say and somehow we got off course.

         Sponsored by The Kangal Dog Club of America
Supported by The Republic of Turkey’s Consulate General, Boston


WHEN:    MAY 20, 2:00 – 4:00 pm      Educational discussion
         MAY 21, 1:00 – 4:00pm       Dog Show
WHERE:   Windhover Center for the Performing Arts, 257 R Granite St., Rockport, MA
Contact:     Mary Hughes 978- 281- 6703 or 
BACKGROUND:  Come meet the Kangal dog, one of the oldest breeds in the world. Rare in the USA, they have centuries of guardianship of livestock, villages and people in Turkey. Guarding and protecting out of love, not aggression. Learn about the important roles they serve in their homeland and here, and what it means to be a steward to this rare breed of dog, the Kangal Dog of Turkey.
Interviews available with Kangal owners on event weekend.
Meet Bekci and Heidi, a service /mobility dog for a retired veterinarian who lives with Multiple Sclerosis; Bekci supports and travels with her everywhere, even airplanes! Bekçi is 6 years old and has been with Heidi since a puppy. He has always had a special air of confidence and serenity. Although Heidi has other livestock guardian dogs that work with her goats and Mustang horses, it was evident early that Bekci was destined for a different life than the goat-herding guardian they envisioned. Heidi and Bekci will be at the Kangal Dog Show for visitors to meet!

Heidi and Bekci arrive at the airport after one of their frequent trips.

For the Love of God. In a remote corner of the desert southwest, a women’s monastery resides amidst the local wildlife population that includes bobcats, coyotes, rattlesnakes and the occasional mountain lion and bear. When the monastery first relocated and opened to the public, the sisters knew they needed a serious and effective warning and protection system. Research lead them to the Kangal Dog and thus began a journey that has given them new generations from the original male/female pair of Kangal Dogs who watched over them with such care. They have proved to excel as guardians for the monastery as they patrol the grounds at night and accompany the nuns during their daily tasks. Because the sisters socialize their Kangals early with people and animals, they have never had a bad experience or worry. The bond and intuition the dogs demonstrate – with people and animals – is remarkable to see. A favorite saying is “our dogs are Kangals first and dogs second,” such is their unique breed characteristics and depth of personality!

On the grounds of a monastery in the desert southwest, Kangals watch over two- and four-legged creatures of God.
⦁    A Kangal dog is designated as a national treasure in Turkey
⦁    Only a Turkish citizen can take them out of the country legally
⦁    Less than 800 Kangal dogs exist in the U.S.
⦁    While many, more familiar, breeds have been heavily cross-bred over the years, the Kangal remains very close to its original breed characteristics.
About the Kangal Dog Club of America
The Kangal Dog Club of America is the national parent club for the UKC and the only club in North America dedicated to the breed.

Gloucester undersea

Hello Joey,

I just discovered your website via a friend who was born in Gloucester and lived in Manchester until moving to Denver more than 40 years ago. He posted on his facebook page your photos of Ten Pound Island from the 1920s. I lived in Manchester for one year in high school and have lived on the North Shore for 50 years. I am going to have to spend some time on your website, it looks very interesting.

I think you would be very interested in my website and my just released ebook, “Diving Cape Ann and Boston’s North Shore.”

I have made hundreds of scuba dives in Gloucester with camera in hand over the last 40 years and have hundreds of undersea and surface photos some of which are posted on my website.

Thanks for your time.

identifying a USCG motor life boat in Gloucester

Hi Joey–

A friend named Glen owns this USCG motor life boat.    He’s elderly and plans to donate it to the San Francisco Maritime NH Park once he completes one more trip on her this coming summer.     When he saw this MLB photo over near Adventure and the Gloucester Maritime Center, he became quite excited.  Would you have any idea who owns it and how Glen could get in touch with the owner.  

Hope you can help  . . .

Here are the Facts –

  • Lung cancer, the #1 cancer killer of women in the United States.
  • Every five minutes, a woman in the U.S. is told she has lung cancer.
  • The lung cancer death rate in women has more than doubled over the past 35 years.
  • Anyone can get lung cancer.
