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

Tim Breaks down the crazy amount of State and Federal Tax credits and SREC’s available which has Solar paying for itself within 3 or 4 years and after that actually puts money in your pocket.

Solar is now at a point where not only does it make financial sense, it’s actually one of the best investments you can make, paying you back a return!

Tim Graduated from Gloucester High School in 1971 where he was the captain of the football team and the company that he owns Cazeault Solar and Home did roughly 80 installs on the North Shore (a majority of which were on Cape Ann) last year alone.

Call to talk to Tim at 978-281-4625  He’s local and he’s a straight shooter.

Update 2010 @WeberGrills Brick Red Performer Restoration Project

Featured Image -- 322208

More From Joey’s BBQ Blog

Northeast BBQ

Other than the cracked table I knew this Performer had good bones. She was pretty much scratch free, the bowl was regularly cleaned by the previous owner but she just needed to be scraped down and buffed up.
Before and after pics-

There was a little bit of surface rust on the wire shelf on the bottom .  When I was at the owners house I scratched at it with my fingernail and saw that it came right off so I knew it would clean up nicely.  The broken table surface was a bit of a concern but I knew where I could get one.

Will you look at the inside of that bowl shine after an hour or so with the razor scraper and steel wool?


After cleaning the bowl thoroughly, the lid got some love with some steel wool and soapy water.  Just like new! Before and after-

She’s got a cracked table which I’ll have to replace, a little dusty and just a tiny bit of surface rust that I’m confident will come off with some elbow grease, thanks to Weber Kettle Club Forum Member @TheDude ‘s suggestion of using CLR to knock off that surface rust.  I drove an hour and a half away to Rescue her.

The bowl, lid and grates are in excellent shape and with a little elbow grease they’ll shine up nicely.  The ash sweeps turn freely and the ash pan is free of pitting.

There’s really not a ton to do other than clean her up and replace the table.  This is a $450 grill brand new.  With a couple hours of work I can’t wait to shine her up!

Therapeutic Hot Stone Massage.FullSizeRender-2.jpg

When we decided to offer Therapeutic Hot Stone Massage at Saltwater Massage Studio, I knew that I wanted this service to be special. To be GREAT. Magical.  The kind of massage you remember and tell your friends about. And I think we’ve done that.

We are in the business of making people feel better, in body and mind. So in keeping with that theme, our Therapeutic Hot Stone Massage putsour own therapeutic spin on things.

You’ve probably seen ads where a bunch of black stones are laid out over a woman’s body, or maybe you’ve had a treatment like this somewhere. I have, and to tell you the truth, I sort of felt like I was just waiting for the massage to start the whole time. And by the…

Port of Gloucester 1

tugster: a waterblog

Way too many years ago I made a trip back to Gloucester, as posted about here.  So I went back this weekend, had long talks with a few people, but of course that means I didn’t see all the people I would have liked to.  And although putting up these photos seems like walking on a concrete slab before it’s set, here I go, premature or not.

It’s the old 1952 Blue Ocean alongside some newer yachts.  This is the transition in Gloucester.


Here’s looking south toward Rocky Neck.  From left, it’s lobster boat Blivy Fish, Fort Point, and Disch’s old Dredge No. 200.   Click here for a post I did in 2009 showing the No. 200 in the KVK.  After the company owner died, the Disch equipment was auctioned off to the four winds.  One of Disch’s small tugs is on the Lake Erie…

Day Boat Scallops Seared In A @LodgeCastIron Skillet On The @WeberGrills Kettle

Featured Image -- 321639

More from Joey’s Pit-

Northeast BBQ

Step one was to place the scallops on a paper towel to dry them off.
Then season them with a generous coating of Sea Salt.
Put a half a chimney of coals into the Weber Charcoal baskets and then get your Lodge skillet heated up.
Next put a couple of turns of EVOO and a couple of tablespoons of clarified butter in the skillet and place your scallops down flat onto the skillet surface.

The key is to not move the scallops on the skillet to let them develop that golden  browning effect. Resist checking the bottom for at least two minutes.  Once you see good color, flip em over-


Let them develop the same color on the other side.  The smaller ones will cook faster so if you need to, leave the larger scallops on for a minute longer.  (You could also cut them in half)

Buttery goodness!
