This was the adventure that landed him in the hospital with a number of ailments related to this punishing run. Last we heard, he’s out of the hospital but still not 100% well. I told him we’d have a shout out to him on today’s podcast. If you would like to donate, it’s not too late. Link here:https://www.adventureman.org/donate/
Weighing in on the current internet debate: do you wash your legs in the shower?
 An excerpt from the article in Forbes magazine

Regardless, in general, arguments against “washing your legs” included:

  • The water and soap from the top part of your body and your genitals will flow down to your legs anyway.
  • Washing your legs with soap too often will strip them of the protective natural oil layer.
  • What are you doing to make your legs so dirty every day?

Arguments for “washing your legs” included:

  • Water and soap flow down is not enough to clean your legs
  • What, you are not cleaning your legs?
  • Do you realize how dirty your legs can get?

Donna Ardizzoni | scenes from Magnolia show

Donna Ardizzoni visits with Sharon at the October 12, 2018 sip n stroll in Magnolia. Her booth featured some of her favorite motifs and vistas. Donna works with Cape Ann Giclee to print and mount her photographs on various matrices, and for her gift cards. She appreciates the quality. “I mean look at this,” she exclaimed pointing to the rack of cards, “How great is the service for photographers: the cards include custom labels on the back, envelopes and plastic sleeves!”

SHOUT OUT TO JAMES AND ANNA EVES AT CAPE ANN GICLEE

Don’t you love the look of a white mat and white frame? James and Anna over at Cape Ann Giclée are now offering matting and framing. Their workmanship is pristine, exquisite really.

For the past several years I have been trudging to frame shops looking for white frames, cutting the mats myself, and generally not happy about the inordinate amount of time spent doing these tasks. Now you can go to Cape Ann Giclée and they not only have a beautiful selection of papers and options for printing, but all can be matted and framed, in either a plain white or plain black frame, and all for a very reasonable fee. Thanks James and Anna for a terrific (and greatly simplified) experience. I am shipping “Lily Pads in the Moonlight” tomorrow to my client in Aspen and I just know she is going to love it!

dscf1485Simple white frame, mat, and reveal–just perfect!

My Super Talented Friend

Anyone who follows GMG knows how much we love our friends at Cape Ann Giclee, James and Anna Eves. Not only do they do amazing work, but they are incredibly kind and generous.

So, how happy was I to see that one of my favorite peeps in the world now has reproductions of her gorgeous paintings available at Cape Ann Giclee. One of the coolest things about Paula Morgan?  Well, she’s actually Mrs. Morgan.  As in West Parrish’s very own art teacher.  How great for your child to own a piece of their teacher’s amazing artwork.  However, even if you don’t have a child in one of Paula’s classes, you’d be lucky to have one of these pieces in your home.

Check out Paula Morgan’s work here!  Hopefully more coming soon!

Here is a screen shot of the two paintings that are available now.  Obviously check out other work while visiting the site…including GMG’s, Joey Ciaramitaro. Be sure to visit the link above to see these close up…as this photo absolutely does not do them justice.  So much vibrant color and detail!

Bacheler Coat Caper youcaring page for the High School Civil War Coat

Hi Joey,

In the spirit of just do it and one person CAN make a difference: the parent that called attention to the Civil War coat is…Kim Minnaugh! She saw the display label and coat when she was at the High School and looked so closely she saw the damage. Then she did something about it. She reached out for help. Maybe it’s the photographer in her that had her looking closely. Her actions have inspired us and kids, too.

Bacheler Coat Caper YOUCARING page

https://www.youcaring.com/the-gloucester-fund-467104

The Committee for the Arts will use the money to pay for the necessary textile conservation, display form and case. James’ Cape Ann Giclee poster really helps. Look for it at City Hall and a few more spots coming soon!

Gloucester’s mystery Civil War Era Coat tomorrow CITY HALL 1-4pm

Cat Ryan says have a closer look thanks to Cape Ann Giclee

Hi Joey

Mold and forgotten history has damaged a distinctive 19th century jacket, our very own historic ‘coat of many colors’ worth more than the fabric itself!

80 years ago Roger Babson presented this Civil War era coat to the community during a town wide celebration for the 50th Anniversary of the Gloucester High School Cadets, an ROTC forerunner founded by Albert W. Bacheler (b. 1843 Indiana – d.1929 Melrose, MA). Bacheler was an esteemed principal of Gloucester High School for a staggering 30 years (1814-1913), a Civil War Veteran (New Hampshire regiment Army of the Potomac), and a Dartmouth alum.

Chairs for 1500 people were set up in advance of that event! Artist Charles Allan Winter designed the program!

You see, it wasn’t just any coat.

Back then everyone in Gloucester knew Babson and Bacheler and understood the many reasons that this very special coat was a gift for our City. Babson was a key speaker at the event and his topic was solely Bacheler and this coat. School teachers and colleagues said that Bacheler liked to show his students the coat as inspiration, a reminder that one never need to be discouraged. Principal Bacheler told students how this coat was given to him by a Virginia slave who harbored him after his escape from Richmond’s infamous Libby Prison during the Civil War. While this incredible story warrants our attention, verification and further exploration—what a great project for our students!

In 2015, the coat that remains to tell the story is in immediate need of our care.

A concerned parent noticed that the coat near ROTC and Veterans awards and memorials at Gloucester High School had developed mold and brought it to the attention of various folks in town. The coat is everyone’s artifact. The school budget, PTOs, City Archives, city committees, the Cape Ann Museum—none have a budget to pay for this coat repair. The coat has been examined by a professional textile conservator through the Committee for the Arts. This garment needs to be fumigated, cleaned and repaired. It also requires an armature to support it and new display. The estimate for treatment and preparing it for installation is $3800.

Come “see” the coat during Jason Grow’s WWII Veterans’ Portrait Exhibition at City Hall on Saturday, November 7, 2015, from 1-4pm. The coat is too fragile to travel at present and will be represented by a full size photograph thanks to the generosity of Cape Ann Giclee! thank you James!

Donations will be accepted at the event or checks can be mailed and made payable to The Gloucester Fund, 45 Middle Street, Gloucester, MA. PLEASE write “Civil War coat” in memo field on the check. We are setting up a youcaring site and will apply to Awesome Gloucester.
