What goes up must come down! 

David Brooks and friends taking down the buoys from our beloved Lobster Trap Christmas Tree.  

I have to say that it would not be an exaggeration to say that thousands of photos were taken of the tree this year. People would just drive up, get out of their cars, take a picture and drive away. I met several from Europe taking them. Being able to walk inside has really made a difference it seems.

Don’t forget the auction of the boeys on January 27 at the Cruiseport!

Great job David and company!  Can’t wait till next year!  Well, in between it is going to be nice to have a great summer….

Tom Brady is one of the most successful athletes of all time in any sport. He knows that success isn’t decided on Sunday: but in the days, weeks, months, and years leading up to game time. One of my football coaches used to say:

“Cry in the dojo;

Laugh on the battlefield.”

He’s the first player at the training facility in the morning. You hear in the way he answers questions at press conferences his singular focus of preparing himself for the next game. His diet doesn’t consist of Nachos and Jack and Cokes, but wholesome and nourishing food. He isn’t staying up until midnight watching old movies, he’s asleep in bed well before most of…

Salt hits the back of my throat. As I step out of my car, I suck deeper on the icy sea air. Freezing waves crash below me as I gaze out towards the Atlantic from Gloucester, an old fishing settlement on the New England coast, while the sun slowly drops below the horizon.

In the distance is the glimmer of the Eastern Point lighthouse, the last sight of home for many Gloucester fishermen before they sailed into the vastness of the ocean. Dotted around the harbour are small wooden houses from which fishermen’s wives would look anxiously into the bay.

Winter is a great time of year for a cleanse but not just a cleanse but one that also helps to rejuvenate the body and mind.

Seasonal cleansing rids our bodies of all sorts of toxins, pollutants, harb chemicals, pesitcides, and any other Ama (toxic residue) that our physical body has accumulated over the holiday period. Cleanses will help to purify and tone the internal organs, cells, and tissues of the body, flushing out impurites that aren’t serving us.
