Looking for a Picnic

Ants are social insects of the family Formicidae and, along with the related wasps and bees, belong to the order Hymenoptera. Ants evolved from wasp-like ancestors in the mid-Cretaceous period between 110 and 130 million years ago and diversified after the rise of flowering plants. More than 12,500 out of an estimated total of 22,000 specieshave been classified. They are easily identified by their elbowed antennae and a distinctive node-like structure that forms a slender waist.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

Adaptive sticks-113

Cape Ann Adaptive Lacrosse would like to thank the following Student Athlete/Mentors for their support of the CAYL Adaptive Lacrosse Program.  These Student Athletes volunteered their time for 8 consecutive Sundays to teach the game of Lacrosse.   Without these young women and men this program would have never been a success.   Each week consisted Stretching, Lacrosse and then a scrimmage.  The Season closed with a mentor’s game, where it was girls vs boys, with a twist they had to exchange lacrosse sticks, yup you guessed it the GIRLS won.

Watching the Sunset!

Pirates Lane-11

Deb, Jim and I went out for our usual Thursday Cupboard dinner, burgers and fish sandwich.  We wait all winter for the summer Thursday night event. After dinner we do the loop, down the boulevard over to GHB along the Backshore, then on to Niles for the sunset.  Tonight we turned left to Pirates Lane and watched this beautiful sunset.   What a painting mother nature gave us tonight.   We are truly blessed!
