With yesterday’s snow storm you may not have gotten out much, but if you had you may have noticed a lot of women wearing red for National Red Dress Day. 

RedDressPin

February is ‘National Heart Month.’ Wear red this month to help bring awareness to heart disease, risk factors, and prevention. ‘Get your red on’ all month-long.

Recognize Warning Signs of a Heart Attack. Symptoms of a heart attack can be different in men and women (more subtle at times) and may include –

Matz Gallery Artist for February: David Bover

DavidBoverArtist’s Statement :Fishing and the sea have defined Gloucester for centuries.  The sights and smells of the water and boats are everywhere.  I love roaming the docks in Gloucester to see what’s happening and perhaps capture a compelling image. These photographs attempt to convey some of the unique marine flavor of Gloucester – especially the rugged beauty of the city’s pride, its fishing boats.  And a few shots of the wide horizon’s grander view as well.  My focus is on light, color and pleasing patterns, on large or small scale. I hope you enjoy viewing these pictures as much as I’ve enjoyed making them.  Walk around Gloucester and check out the waterfront in person!    Biography: This show combines my lifelong passion for boats and the sea with the art of photography.  I first visited Gloucester during college, while in Boston for a work term at…

The Great Salt Marsh

More Cape Ann Community News-

Cape Ann Community

Author and Ipswich resident, Doug Stewart will present an illustrated lecture on Essex County’s spectacular Great Salt Marsh on Saturday, Feb 6th.

The Marsh is a biological engine whose nutrients sustain fish stocks and bird life. It also protects shore towns from flooding and storm surges, but despite its necessity, the Marsh is poorly understood and under-appreciated. Stewart will explore the Great Marsh’s past as valuable real estate for farming salt hay, its unique success over much of the past century in dodging the nation’s swamp-filling mania, and its uncertain future as sea-level rise accelerates.

The photography of Ipswich native, conservation volunteer and master photographer, Dorothy Kerper Monnelly will be on display in the auditorium. Monnelly and Stewart collaborated on Between Land and Sea – The Great Marsh.

Free for CAM members or with admission. Space is limited; reservations required…

ABC Home Healthcare is joining The Heart Truth program today Friday, February 5th—National Wear Red Day—to help spread the message that “Heart Disease Doesn’t Care What You Wear, It’s the #1 Killer of Women.®” Although significant progress has been made in increasing awareness among women that heart disease is their #1 killer, most women fail to make the connection between heart disease risk factors and their personal risk of developing the disease. This disease is largely preventable, but kills more women than all forms of cancer combined.

While heart disease risk begins to rise in middle age, heart disease develops over time and can start at a young age, even in the teen years. It’s never too early, or too late, to take action to prevent and control the risk factors for heart disease. Take the first step and schedule your Well-Woman Visit today, a prevention check-up to…

Loving @AtlanticSalt Tuscan Blend Rub For Steak Tips On The @STOKGrills Charcoal Drum #BBQ

Northeast BBQ

Fire up the pit and leave the charcoal insert in to create a vortex like heat concentrated right under our meat. BBQing with high heat vents wide open and direct.

Took steak tips out 45 minutes in advance to bring to room temp and rubbed with evoo and then a liberal seasoning on all sides of Atlantic Saltworks Tuscan Blend.

wp-1454631515505.jpg
Once the coals are orange fired up hot we place the steak directly over the coals on the STOK Charcoal Drum’s Cast Iron Grates.

wp-1454631523832.jpg
Can we ali about the sear produced by the STOK concentrating the heat up through the Vortex like charcoal basket and the cast iron grates? Incredible!
