Poll- With Giusepppes Closed What Kind Of Restaurant Would You Like To Fill That Space

I think the only void we have in the dining scene on Cape Ann is Indian Food. If you’ve been to Anmol in Beverly you know it’s really fantastic. If we could lure the owners of Anmol to open up in the space in the basement of the Blackburn Building that would be round out Gloucester’s dining menu.

What type of restaurant would you like to see there?

Edit: After thinking about this I’m not sure that we have a true Steak House here. That would be something that could add to our dining options. However with the crazy high price of good beef I’m not sure that we could support a real deal Steak House. We could have a place that serves steak obviously but to get real aged beef after you triple your food cost (how most restaurants come up with their pricing) I don’t think we have enough people having business meetings on company credit cards that don’t care that they are spending $40 for a steak and $100 bottle of wine. That’s big city stuff.

So I stand by my original choice of Indian food. Oh and for the people that have never tried Indian food, you’re really missing out. Anmol is a treasure for the people in Beverly.

Avita Doesn't Love You_Thomas HauckAvita Doesn’t Love You from Whiskey Creek Press

Lone and his allies – including the brave Jessica Kenney, who seeks to avenge her father’s murder – tell how they must infiltrate and defeat the cancerous North Korean spy ring masquerading as a peace-loving religious cult. But Avita, the secretive leader of the cult, will go to any length to ensure that her deadly mission is accomplished. The fast-moving plot is complicated by a mysterious activist who has threatened to set off a bomb in Washington, D.C. The suspense builds to a shattering climax when Lone must confront Avita and her deadly accomplices.

Next Step for Fred

Walking4769wmAll VNA services have discharged me because of my improvement and insurance requirements. This means no more weekly visiting Registered Nurses (Diane), no more Kathleen (my physical therapist), and Shelly (my occupational therapist). They all helped me so much that it brings tears to my eyes to see them go. Now, I must look to outpatient physical rehab facilities. There are three on Cape Ann (I cannot walk or drive). Two are in Blackburn Park, and one is at Addison Gilbert Hospital, the place that initially saved my life. Transportation-wise, AGH is the most convenient. I’m determined to be walking by Thanksgiving, come hell or high water. Any suggestions for the rehab facility? (Note: I’m also going to follow an exercise program at home. Kathleen: “Walking is the best exercise you can have, because it uses all of your muscles.”) In retrospect, I should not only thank the medical professionals who saved my life three times this year, but also the dedicated professional therapists from Den-mar and Seacoast, who all helped restore my physical abilities and continue to stay healthy.

​Gloucester Block Party 2014

As many of you know  have a Kickstarter Project underway with only 3 weeks left. I’m not yet halfway to my goal yet. My record of accomplishments should encourage you to sponsor me with confidence. I’m a woman who gets the job done. I humbly ask for your support for my business, and I thank those that have already joined me on this incredible journey. The exposure from my TV program generates interest in my gourmet nut business. (My recipe is based on my Victorian grandmother’s recipe, so it all ties in together. )
Please partner with me. Any and all dollar amounts will be appreciated, as it adds up when many people come together. I have wonderful thank you rewards waiting for you!
