Gloucester Candy House is busy!
On Friday the Snowy Egret and Glossy Ibis were hanging out at Clark Pond. The Glossy Ibis were hiding in the marsh.
BSide stopped in to Mermaid Tales of Glosta over the weekend for an Easter gift and she lives for accessories and she got lost for about an hour in the store!
Seriously if you are looking for cute little necklace, bangle, braclet, pair of earrings or the perfect Birthday Card that has just the right amount of Sass, definitely go see them!

Yesterday, Good Friday, Senior Care’s Executive Director Scott Trenti, HDM Assessor Lauren Gailitis and I were happy to celebrate 100 years of a great life with Randall Lane in Essex. His son Tim told us that he actually turn 100 in February and there was a big party with over 100 attending.
Senior Care’s tradition is to celebrate all our Meals on Wheels clients when they turn 100 with a visit by Scott, a gift and flowers. As the Site Manager for Manchester, Essex, Magnolia and West Gloucester it was my honor to come along and deliver his meal. Meals on Wheels is so much more than just a Meal, it a smiling face, a laugh, a blessing that there are people that volunteer to make a seniors day so much better!
Senior Care wishes our clients and volunteers have a very Happy Easter!

I recently found a hawk watching over the iconic pink house on Plum Island and shared it on Facebook. A New York friend asked “You mean THE Plum Island?” and before I dashed off “Ummm….yes, of course”, I checked for other well known Plum Islands. Now Google knows where I am so the results favored our Plum Island so I didn’t scroll down the list very far. So I affirmed I meant THE Plum Island. And she asked “How did you get there and what about the lab?” Then I knew I was out of my depth. She informed me of the Long Island NY Plum Island which has a lab that studies hoof and mouth disease and comes under the umbrella of Homeland Security. Who knew?
The “Who knew?”, of course, is rhetorical since I am sure there are several Plum Islands well known in their geographic areas, but I think ours is very special.
