No! Towards the light Mr Asparagus, towards the light!


If you follow me on Facebook I posted first light of Mr Asparagus on April 28. That is a full week before I’ve seen one in my garden. Today I go to measure my asparagus (it’s a guy thing), and he seems to be retreating back into the earth. Come back! It’s a sunny day! In a week all your pals are going to be popping out of the ground and into the pan.

In a case of the early bird not getting the worm that damaged asparagus (behind little stiffy) was likely the first up but I used an iron rake to clear the leaves a week ago and must have whacked it right in the cajones (that would be the apical meristem.)

Eastern Point Light at dusk

imageThis is one of my favorite “unique” photos of Eastern Point Light.   It’s not unique because of the pretty skies behind it or the nice light on the house from the setting sun, it’s because this was taken when they were filming a movie there.  The cyclone fence is removed and its staged with boats and old fence posts.  Love how natural the scene looks.   It was a short lived view!

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.



BREAKING BUSINESS DISPATCH: Say thanks and goodbye G33K and welcome goodlinens on 130 Main St

G33K (‘geek’) a small business that was big in game will be closing its location in Gloucester, MA.

G33K is located in 130 Main Street between Dogtown Books and Main Street Art and Antiques. Make sure to stop by to say thanks and good luck! We were light customers–Pokémon packs and random t-shirt gifts—but always treated large. There is a store-wide closing sale on now.


When one door closes another opens. Welcome goodlinens opening July 1

Gloucester resident, business owner, designer and artisan JoAnne Chirico has been on the lookout for a ‘just right’ Main Street goodlinens headquarters for years, and boy has she found it! 130 Main Street is the one she’s been dreaming about as a retail work space, craft and creative show room. It is within an historic building and district, boasts 13 foot ceilings and has ample room for her vision and requirements. Did I mention great neighbors and the sunny side of the street?

As G33K moves out and goodlinens moves in to 130 Main Street, the space will be temporarily closed as it’s transformed in time for a July 1 soft summer launch and grand opening in September.

goodlinens new flagship store and open studio on Main Street will feature JoAnne’s handmade beautiful and functional designs along with selected hand made crafts from other artisans, local and beyond. The retail will include kitchen and housewares goods, unique and special objects, finds, and lighting. She embraces an open work studio concept in such an original and thoughtful way. This space will be a place for people making things. I expect it to be inspiring, playful, unexpected and comfortable. She has a lot in store for this store. She can’t wait to finally move boxes, case-goods and tables out of her home, her friends’ barns and other storage sites. Look for new Facebook and updates coming soon.

In the meantime, here’s a snapshot of JoAnne quickly sketching a layout with high points, and one of goodlinens videos shot by Gloucester cinematographers’ Yellow Hook Productions.



Fish Out of Water

Not only could Codzilla be called a fish out of water, but it looks like a fish out of water sitting in our very own Gloucester Marine Railways.

I took the boys for a ride in Boston Harbor on Codzilla last summer.  They enjoyed it, but it wasn’t as crazy fast and fun as they expected.
