It doesn’t get any sweeter than this and just look at those huge hunks of fresh lobster meat. Get yourself on over to Passports Restaurant on Main Street!
Mmmm–it just occurred to me–a not-so subtle hint for lobster dinners when she is home over Memorial Day weekend? Liv must be dreaming about summer’s freshest straight-off-the-boats tasty lobsters from Captain Joe and Sons!
Traps Are Headed in the Right Direction. Out To Sea. Can’t make Any Money Stacked Up In The Parking Lot!
More than 250 million years before the first dinosaur, the most fearsome killers on Earth may have been lobsters. Yawunik kootenayi, a common ancestor to spiders, shrimp and butterflies, was a predatory “lobster-like” creature that ruled the seas half a billion years ago.
As reported this week in the journal Paleontology, fossils of Yawunik were recently unearthed from Marble Canyon, part of the renowned Burgess Shale rock formation of British Columbia. This massive fossil bed holds specimens of many sea creatures that lived during the Cambrian period, the geologic era that saw a rapid diversification of marine life forms.

I’m going to go with Thetys vagina. That is the actual scientific name for the organism, not a joke. For more info see http://eol.org/pages/510608/overview.
Landed this morning at Captain Joe and Sons-
I put out the challenge to see who could identify it first and Mary Kay from Mariotime Gloucester as usual kicked the New England Aquariums butt all over the place.
That’s Allota Fagina if I do say so myself.
