The beautiful Lannon went my our street last night just has the sun was going down. She looked so amazing. We are so lucky to live in the community of Gloucester.
Beautiful Industry down at the State Pier.
Beautiful day to be kayaking on Saturday, Rick and I launched from Pavilion Beach over to Ten Pound Island and all around the harbor. On Saturday, the ocean was very reflective but at the same time rolling small waves. Always fun.
When driving down Washington Street behind Captain Hooks at high tide, love this little boat waiting for a ride.
John was on the Gloucester’s Hurricane during the Sail Boston Parade of Sail. What a beauty of a photo.

The Lannon and Ardelle heading out. So beautiful.
What a great Friday morning watching the O’Maley’s great 8th graders launch their two rowboats that were built over at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum. What an inspiration watching the hard work the kids, teachers and staff at The Essex Shipbuilding Museum put into this project.
We should be very proud of these kids.
It was a grand day for the Schooner Adventure and Maritime Gloucester as our beautiful National Historic Landmark has returned to her home berth at the Maritime center. The reconstructed pier looks fantastic, and ready for a summer of fabulous fun and educational experiences. Come on down and check out the pier and see the Adventure back at home.

Behind-the-Scenes Factory Tours | The Best 5
Want to see Yankee ingenuity in action? Go behind the scenes on a factory tour. “Made in New England” pride thrives at factories that produce everything from frozen commodities to cuddly gifts guaranteed to melt hearts. As a piano or a naval destroyer takes shape before your eyes, you’ll realize anything built to last requires one component that can’t be manufactured: passion.
Cape Pond Ice
When Cape Pond Ice was founded in 1848, Mother Nature provided the refrigeration. These days, giant blocks of ice aren’t harvested from local ponds; they’re manufactured. On ice house tours year-round, you can watch the “coolest guys around” turn water into cold, hard cash. Inside this frosty factory, where 300 tons of ice are produced daily, antique hydraulic block upenders are everyday tools, and ice sculptures survive for decades. Cape Pond’s diverse product line includes everything from ice shot luges to three grades of chopped ice critical to Gloucester’s fishing industry. Plus, more than 15 years after actor John Hawkes wore a Cape Pond Ice T-shirt in The Perfect Storm, sales of logo wear still account for nearly 10 percent of revenues.
When C.B. Fisk has their open house, Rick and I always try to go. As many times as we have been there, we always learn something new. Thank you C.B. Fisk and FOB Greg Bover for opening your wonderful shop.
Semiconductor legend: you couldn’t make a chip without ion implantation| RIP Peter H Rose (1925-2017)
Rockport resident, Rose was a notable North Shore physicist and entrepreneur who founded seminal global manufacturing companies in Gloucester (Extrion Corp. 1971/ then Varian/now Applied) and Beverly (Nova Assoc, 1978)/now Axcelis). Who were the customers? Who wasn’t! Intel, IBM, …Rose received a National Medal of Technology in 1996 for his work on ion implantation. He was awarded a PhD in physics in 1955 from London University.
I enjoyed this video clip from a panel discussion held at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA, April 1-2, 2008:
Risto Puhakka Moderator: “A lot of the ion implantation technology really came from the– and still is in– the North Shore of Boston. What was the biggest contributing factor that it all practically came from there which is today’s ion implementation technology?”
Peter H Rose: “Well it started (on the North Shore) because that’s where we built the companies. It’s where we lived.
And in fact we did suffer– or maybe we didn’t suffer– from the fact that we were isolated from silicon valley. I’ve often wondered what would have happened if we started a company (there) my guess is that there would have been 20 start-ups in the second year. Luckily we’re far enough away that the technology didn’t leak out quite so quickly.”
from YouTube credit: Peter Rose joined a panel moderated by Risto Puhakka of VLSI Research to discuss the development of ion implantation. The panel was part of a conference organized by SEMI and the Chemical Heritage Foundation called Empowering the Silicon Revolution: the Past, Present and Future of the Semiconductor Equipment and Materials Industry, held April 1-2, 2008 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California.
