Joe "The Animal" Barboza Baron, Thachers and Straitsmouth Islands and long distance ocean swimmers

Adam Bolonsky submits-

Mitchell Hsing and Isabel Brachmann, grad students at MIT (who said only nerds go to MIT?) recently swam the perimeter of Straitsmouth Island from Gap Head in less than 25 minutes. Their coach Bill Steele and I escorted them in kayaks.

Fish tacos afterwards at Cape Ann Brewing Company!

Here’s a video clip. You can clearly see Twin Lights at Thachers and Straitsmouth Island light in the background:

Straitsmouth swim

Joe “The Animal” Barboza was flown to Thachers Island each night by helicopter in the late 60’s while testifying against the New England mob. When Barboza’s cover at Thachers was blown, federal marshals moved him to a house on Eastern Point.

Barboza was gunned down a few years later in Southern California.

This was back in the day when the Coast Guard radio station at Gap Head was still in operation.

Video- Jim Cantore Just Casually Kneeing College Kid In The Nuts

Search Term: Define Professional Hardass Weatherman

Search Results- “Jim Cantore”

I hope to see this kind of professionalism out of our new weather guy Pete.  Just kneeing MFers in the nuts and going about his business totally unfazed.

Pete, if you aren’t kneeing dudes in the nuts within the next week during one of your video weather updates I may have to rethink your whole dedication to being part of the GMG team ;)

jimCantoreKneesCollegeKidInTheNuts

If I’m looking back on the entire body of Jim Cantore’s work I can’t find anything more impressive than this nutsack knee job. Imagine that. All the years of heading straight to the worst weather conditions- standing up to typhoons, hurricanes and massive flooding in the worst possible conditions and your life becomes defined by a perfectly executed nut slam.
I’m lucky I got out of our interview unscathed and nuts intact

Block Party Debris Field at Bodin Historic Photo

Fred writes-

Here’s my measure of our Block Party. This was a family event, and dicey weather was a factor. But the proof is in my sink. Big crowds, respectable sales, and boy were they thirsty. All of the wine glasses I had out were used, all the wine and beer was consumed, and it was a very successful event. One thing is for sure — we have a lot of happy drunken fruit flies in the back room.

Video- East Gloucester Elementary Flash Mob From Martin DelVecchio

Martin writes-

My wife Michele decided to mix things up at this year’s end-of-year picnic at East Gloucester Elementary School.

Add in some calypso by Harry Belafonte, choreography by Sarah Slifer Swift, and videography by Jason Grow, and here are the results.

Enjoy!

Who is old school Gloucester enough to remember clear plastic furniture covers?

https://i0.wp.com/www.tlloh.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/sofa-plastic-cover.jpg

Dating myself, I remember back in the early 70s when making the rounds with my mom and sister Felicia we would visit all her Sicilian relatives on Prospect and up on Commonwealth, and they always had their living room furniture sets covered with that hard transparent plastic to protect it.

Never see those plastic furniture covers any more.  While talking to Miles Schlicte we were trying to figure out when, if ever they took the covers off the furniture.  Was it only for special occasions, or was it when there weren’t children around?

Did you know anyone or have any relatives that had the transparent furniture covers?

Not my mom-
