BLACKBIRDS IN THE MOONLIGHT

Beautiful Grackles perched in the moonlight.

Blackbird Singing in the Dead of Night

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free

Blackbird fly, blackbird fly
Into the light of a dark black night

Blackbird fly, blackbird fly
Into the light of a dark black night

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life

You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

Mask Donation Bin at Grand Banks

Cape Ann Home

FullSizeRender

We’re putting out the call for help. If there are any contractors, painters, masons, or anyone else out there who has extra masks, our healthcare providers need them.  They are now being asked to reuse masks until they are visibly soiled. A huge risk to healthcare providers and otherwise healthy patients not stricken with the virus but under their care.

There are so many unknowns right now and there isn’t much we can do. But we can do this.  Please bring them Grand Banks. There will be a box on the porch by the warehouse.

If you have any questions please email me at monica@grandbanksbp.com

Dear Friends and Neighbors …

Cape Ann Home

Our “new normal” doesn’t feel normal. Life goes on, but at a different pace, with different priorities.

Since statistics can sometimes have a grounding effect, we offer the following:

  • Last year 61 homes and condos went under contractor were sold in Rockport, Gloucester, Manchester, Essex and Beverly from 2/20/2019 – 3/20/2019.
  • This year, as of today, same time period: 66 homes and condos went under contract or were sold in Rockport, Gloucester, Manchester, Essex and Beverly.

The viris has caused an event, albeit tragic and worldwide, but it’s still an event and not a problem with the financial system. We’ve heard some refer to it as being like a really bad snow storm: sooner or later, the snow will melt and we’ll be able to go out and about again. If we stay calm, stay sane and stay home for a couple of weeks, the infection curve will…

Check Out 1940 Census Info As You Get Ready for the 2020 Census

Gov Census image

Census Day is April 1 2020. The US Census is mandated by the Constitution to be taken every ten years and the data that results drives federal funding for local schools, roads, hospitals, fire departments and others. The resulting data is also used to determine seats in the US House of Representatives and helps determine those district borders.

And that’s all important stuff, yes…BUT census records are one of the most valuable tools for family history research! Individual census records don’t become available until 72 years later (for 2020, that would be 2092 and I’ll be forced to miss that one……). The most recent census available is from 1940 and we are lucky enough to have it available free from Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org.  Anyone can look at them anytime…like under the current circumstances of our at-home time. Here’s an example from Gloucester that highlights some familiar family names…see Ciaramitaro and Orlando? These provide a glimpse into life just prior to our entry into World War II.

1940 Ciaramitaro

It’s very easy to do your part and submit your 2020 Census report. You should receive an “invitation” by mail. You can respond by mail, phone or online. It’s required by law  and you might have a little extra time on your hands anyhow. I filled ours out online in just about 10 minutes. Your descendants will be very thankful!  Here is a link to some common questions.
