Anne and Chris Lewis’ Whale…

Finella williams submits-

Good morning Joe,

I hope that you’re doing great.  I love your site and must admit I have not subscribed but will do so now!

Anne and Chris Lewis wanted us to share their Whale sculpture with you and Good Morning Gloucester.

They had a little gathering at their home this past Sunday for the purpose of naming the new addition to their family.  "Wally" was picked out of the 20 or so names.  So, per their request, I’m attaching a photo of Wally the Whale sculpture for you to post on your site.

It’s hand forged/welded and made entirely of Bronze and also has a water feature spouting from top.

Anne and Chris commissioned this piece from local Essex sculptor, Chris Williams (my husband, you probably imagined that).

You can also add his website link if you’d like… www.chriswilliamssculpture.com

Again, the Lewis’ thought that it would be fun to have this on Good Morning Gloucester.

Thanks Joe.

Original Story Here On Good Morning Gloucester-

Darth Maul Lobster Landed At Captain Joe and Sons

Posted on May 19, 2013 by Joey C

We’ve had some crazy mutated lobsters landed at our dock over the years including albino, blue, marbled, calico but none that were separated at birth from Star Wars character- Darth Maul.

Separated At Birth?  You decide.

New Format for Cape Ann TV Annual Meeting

Paul Jermain, Cape Ann TV board president writes,

“Thanks for accepting our invitation to participate in the CATV annual meeting next week.

You know, historically, CATV annual meetings, like most other of that ilk, have been a tad boring. Yes, the business got done, but holy smokes, it could be dull.

That’s why I’m so excited about the new format we’re going to try out next week, and your participation in it.

In contrast to an endless chain of drawn out speeches, this event is going to revolve around you and some select other producers. Now, I have to share a little bit about the Station in review of last year’s highlights. But, really, the core of the evening is going to be you and the others sharing a bit about your programs- how and why you got started; what you learned; and some interesting moments and clips. As a producer myself, I’m looking forward to hearing what you have to share. And you’ll probably enjoy listening to the other folks as well.

What: CATV Annual Meeting

Where: CATV Studio, 38 Blackburn Center

When: Tuesday, May 28th, 7-8pm

Why: Celebrate the achievements of the station and the producers over the past year.

I’m looking forward to seeing you again and working together to deliver an evening that people will really enjoy and appreciate.”

Thanks Paul for writing. I met Allen Estes at the station yesterday and he is looking forward to participating as well. Best wishes for the new format!

Assault Prevention Seminar for Women and Teen Girls

Hi Joey,

The Gloucester Karate Academy is having a seminar on Friday that will teach women and teen girls the basics of NOT becoming a victim. Considering that 1 in 4 college age women report being victims of rape or attempted sexual assault, attending this course is a no-brainer, especially for younger women. The cost is $10, and all of the proceeds will be donated to HAWC.  For more information check out this link: http://northshorekid.com/event/assault-prevention-seminar-women-and-girls

Contact the dojo at 978.282.0629 to register.

Thanks,

~Bill O’Connor

Origami class at The Hive tonight!

As previously announced, I will be teaching an origami class at the Hive tonight. I can tailor the content to the interests and needs of those present. We can do some nautically themed origami, including a variety of boats, and maybe a sea serpent (as in the photo above).

Or, have you bought an origami book or kit for yourself or a family member, only to have it get dusty on the shelf because no one can figure it out?  You are not alone! Bring it to the class, and I can teach the group how to read the diagrams and fold some models from the book!  It doesn’t matter how simple or complex the model is – I can help you understand what’s going on.  Sometimes, the problem is that the diagrams are  poorly done, or just plain wrong. I can help you over those obstacles!

As a final option, if there’s something you’d like to learn how to make, sign up for the course and let me know what you want to learn (and what your skill level is), by commenting on this post or by some other means. I will do my best to find something to suit your interest! I have over 100 origami publications in my personal library, and can also find a variety of instructions on the internet.

I hope to see you there!

Coastal Dog Apparel Shoots On Wingaersheek

Coastal Dog logo blue sigCoastal Dog Apparel makes anti-chafing swim suits for boys and men. Coastal Dog suits are 100% made in the USA, and all profits from sales of the suits go to help children in need.

The idea for the anti chafing suit came after a summer spent at Wingaersheek beach in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Stephanie and her family had to cut beach days short due to chafing and skin abrasions her son ended up with due to surf and sand. The skin irritation was constant and made long days at the beach all but impossible.130117_14

Stephanie tried several solutions, cutting out the mesh of new suits, her son wore briefs under a suit, creams andgels for the chafed skin after the fact. Finally, she decided to solve the problem and stop chafing before it started.  The Coastal Dog swim suit was born.
130117_24

Stephanie, designed the suit, sourced the materials, and found local fabricators, as making the suit in the USA was important to her.
Coastal Dog suits are available online at:
www.coastaldogapparel.com
And, in select stores.130117_22

Stephanie Magee, Founder and CEO of Coastal Dog, worked as a Preschool teacher as well as a Director of preschools which is where her start up and entrepreneurial skills formed. Much of her time was spent creating a school from the ground up and helping prospective parents share in the vision of the school to be.130117_38

One of Stephanie’s greatest passions is helping others and lending a hand to those in need. Coastal Dog is Stephanie’s way of helping families and children enjoy their time a the beach while also creating company which gives back to children’s charities.
