Old Cessey’s Beach Postcard

Joey     Here is a scan of an old postcard of Cressey’s beach probobly from the 50″s? We lived just over the hill on Western Ave & trecked to the beach every week day ( weather permiting) with all the Moms & kids spending the day.

I thought you would enjoy seeing it. I was sad to see that our dragon is gone.

Cheers & Happy Summer.

If you are ever in Asheville, come by the shop & say hello. Shop name is Earth Guild.

Cutting The Ribeye Cap & Filet 

Since Stop and Shop East Gloucester has been having specials on Rib Roasts I thought it would be a good idea to share videos showing how to break these awesome deals down.  Whenever you see a Rib Roast for under $6 per pound you’re crazy not to buy it and it’s simple enough to break down into steaks. IMO it’s the best cut of meat on the animal.

I just used Fiverr to hire someone to create an 8×8 GMG stencil for me and ship it to my house for $10

I just used Fiverr to hire someone to create an 8×8 GMG stencil for me and ship it to my house for $10. @Alicia Cox used Fiverr to pay a guy $5 to create a musical intro for The Alicia Unleashed Podcast. There are a ton of services that you might think were too costly for you to have done but there is probably someone on Fiverr that can get the job done for you for $5. I highly recommend it!  

Here’s a link to Fiverr, you can have little gods created for $5 and pretty much anything you can think of

Check out the stencil I had made(total turn around time 4 days delivered to my house)-

Delta Terminal and Dunks

I’d like either Cape Ann Coffee or Lone Gull or Willow Rest To Open Up At Logan. Please and Thank You.

So we get through the TSA screeners and inside the Delta Terminal.  With the 2:45AM wake up time a Kate and I were looking forward to a coffee.  Her order- Iced French Vanilla.  She heads to the gate with the two youngest, and my oldest The Bean stays back to get coffees with me.

There’s about six or seven dining options including Fresh City Wraps, Friendlies, Dunks and some burrito place, all serving breakfast.  Line at Dunks is 40 deep.  Biggest line at the other spots is 3 people max. 

I go to Fresh City Wraps because they are serving breakfast and ask for an iced coffee, they say they don’t have iced coffee.  They’re serving coffee.  They have ice.   But they won’t sell me an iced coffee.  

Go to the next stall, the Burrito place which is also open, serving breakfast.  “Can I get an iced coffee?”  

“No, we don’t sell iced coffee.”  

But they’ve got coffee, and they’ve got mountains of ice.”

They just won’t put the ice in the coffee and take my money completing the transaction like a normal business would.

We all know and have become accustomed to getting ass raped by shtty airport food pricing not to mention shitty airport food, but I can’t for the life of me figure out why in the world the management of these chains have decided that it’s a good business decision to not take my money for stuff they have at their fingertips even when they could have porked me at overpriced airport pricing. 

Meanwhile at the very next stall to the Burrito place Dunks has a line 40 deep and they are twiddling their thumbs at Fresh City Wraps and The Burrito place. 

Only thing I could think of was that maybe Dunks has a deal where only they and Starbucks can sell Iced coffee? Could that be? Otherwise the management at Fresh City Wraps and the Burrito place need to be fired immediately for not offering overpriced airport iced coffee when they sell coffee and have ice.

Am I crazy for thinking this is crazy?
