Public Service Announcement about Smoke Detectors

Cape Ann Handywoman is issuing a Public Service Announcement.
Every fall around Daylight Savings Time (aka when we change our clocks) check your detectors and test them. If more than 10-years old, replace it.
If you have a very old detector like this one, replace it IMMEDIATELY.
(Honestly it’s one of the oldest I’ve ever seen!)

Just when I get out of the lobster roll rating game, one so horrendous comes along that it pulls me back in.

Here I am at the dock at 5:57PM after coming in at 2:30AM to offload a trailer load of stinky 55 gallon drums of herring so my lobstermen can have bait to go fishing this week.

Just waiting for the last boat to come in to offload their catch so I can go home, eat dinner with my lovely bride, get some rest and what gets pushed at me?

This challenge via twitter-


I’m tired.  I’m cranky.  And I’ve been retired from the horrendous lobster roll shaming business for a couple of years now but they couldn’t help themselves could they?  They had to come at me.  Well if we must…


Aaaaand where do I begin?

This might take the cake.  It really might.

From leaving the spongy tips of the pincer claws in, to the roll that doesn’t have the exposed white part of a New England Style bun to butter and grill, to the seeds that undoubtedly leave you walking out of the restaurant with bits all stuck up in your gums looking like a dope.  The typical easy to spot violation- green stuff.  In this case avocado. How many times do we have to go over nothing green should ever touch your lobster roll.  It’s all either filler (in the case of lettuce or celery) or takes away from the most perfect of all flavors- lobster meat mixed with melted butter or mayo.

What in the hell is so hard to understand?

I think it’s an insecurity thing probably.

They’re not confident enough so they gotta go and throw all this trendy bullshit in to try to create a buzz.

Oooooh! Ahhhh! It’s served on a squid ink roll.  Frankly dear I don’t give a damn.  Pear and avocado-  Ooooh! Ahhhh! Again, don’t care.  Don’t distract me from the main event, THE LOBSTER.

Look Jason Pramas the writer in the article here fell for it.  I bet he’s a Yankees fan.  Probably has pictures of A-Rod on the ceiling over his bed.  Wouldn’t surprise me in the least.  Poor guy has his name attached to this atrocity.

He’s going to have to live with it but that doesn’t mean we have to.

We all know how it’s done right and this puke on a roll ain’t it.

Sorry kids this is a big fat- FAIL.

I’m sure they are really nice well intentioned people but please get that shit outta here-

Here are some of the other hall of fame horrendous lobster roll inductees-

Don’t Be This Lady…

Teen and Tween Yoga Workshop

Cape Ann Wellness


In this class, your teen/tween will build confidence, self esteem, strength, flexibility, balance, and positive coping skills as they develop a deeper understanding of their bodies, minds and hearts. With a playful and lighthearted approach, we will work towards more physically demanding postures and flowing sequences to keep tweens/teens interested and challenged. Fostering connection, community with class peers, and self-respect, we will also begin using relaxing visualization, meditation, and breathing exercises to create a well-rounded experience of “union”.

This class is perfect for all levels. The student who is looking to manage stress, the athlete looking to build strength and flexibility, the adolescent who is struggling to find an activity, and the well-rounded child…because we can all use a little mind-body connection in this busy world! Sunday evenings are great time to reset, and your teens will find it easier to fall asleep.

Parents, you can find a little calm…
