GloucesterCastSquareGloucesterCast 122 Cape Ann Real Estate With Kenny MacCarthy and Host Joey Ciaramitaro Taped 3/18/15

Kenny MacCarthy started the GloucesterCast with me over 4 years ago.  I love how Kenny doesn’t sugarcoat anything to do with Real Estate.  There is so much to learn from him about the inner machinations of the Real Estate world today.

If you have a home to sell or want to work with someone that you can trust to give you the straight information instead of trying to sell you something at all costs whether it is the right fit for you or not, Kenny is your guy.

Sigrid writes about her new location for Sigrid Olsen Art, “This is for all of my customers who have walked up and down Pineapple Ave in Sarasota looking for my shop, and those who, in the future, will be pondering my absence on Rocky Neck. I am sorry. I miss my little retail snapshots of both communities but am enjoying a new chapter. I have collected all my belongings, my artwork and set up a studio and office in my new home on Siesta Key in Sarasota, Florida.” Read more on her Facebook Page here.

Fr. Jim Blessing The Altar & Ingredients for The 2015 St. Joseph Feast

Early this morning daughter Amanda and I were reminiscing about this years Novean while looking through dozens of photos downloaded onto my computer. It’s with mixed emotions I write todays post. Feeling incredible blessed to be surrounded this year by so many who share a devotion to St. Joseph. As a group through the power of prayer we have come together to continue the deep rooted Sicilian tradition for future generations. It’s been wonderful to see the young kids join us in prayer and song each night. It truly warmes my heart to see them inthustically following  their prayer books eager to learn the  Sicilian words! It’s been a wonderful 2 weeks of prayer and preparation for our celebatory feast on Thursday March 19th. It’s hard to believe that tonight is our last “Novena” of the 2015 celebration. I have to thank my faithful Novena ladies for everything they did to make this years so special…the memories we made, the laughs we had, the tears we shed, and the jokes we told, and the  stories shared will be remember for a lifetime. As Andrea reminds us each night “we got at least 30 more years of this together ladies!” Please know from the bottom of my heart ,I thank each and everyone of you for being by my side night after night and I very much look forward to the next 30 years together.  Tonight we pray one last time together, and tomorrow we celebrate our Patron Saint Joseph!


Viva Gesu Maria Giuseppe….Viva!

Bowl or Floor?

Don’t get me wrong.  I grew up at the awesome Ground Round in Danvers where you could watch little film strip movies, play games, and chuck peanut shells and popcorn all over the floor. It was fantastic.

Fast forward, however, to now….and to Halibut Point Restaurant.

I love it there.  I’m all for a quick meal and a beer sitting at the bar talking with Jack. I’m also not afraid to dive into the basket of peanuts that is inevitably placed directly in front of me.  I do, however, while snacking….place my shells in the extremely convenient glass bowl that is ALWAYS strategically placed in close proximity to the peanuts themselves.  What I don’t do is channel my inner 7 year old….and chuck the shells all over the floor.

So, that being the case, I was a little surprised to watch someone eating peanuts and throwing the shells with reckless abandon…this way and that…all over the floor last night (that may be a slight exaggeration).

So, I ask you… If and when you happen to dine at Halibut Point…do you use the bowl or do you chuck shells on the floor?  Be honest.
