They said WHAT!?

So when you see someone that has noticeably lost weight, do you say something? Do you say something like “You look great!” OR “Wow you’ve lost a ton of weight!” Oh wait, and my personal favorite “You have a pretty face.”  Do you think that person that said that realizes it’s not a compliment and actually sounds a little insulting? OR if someone talks about working out on their status and the comments below say something like “Keep up the good work!” Is that insulting insinuating they need to keep going or are those words of encouragement?

Are there any “nice” ways of saying to someone when they have noticeably lost weight? Its human nature I think to notice someone when they are different. People feel the need to say something to the other person. Has this always been the norm, to worry about complimenting someone? OR is society more emotional and politically correct these days?

A Timeless Photo Triggers A Treasured Memory



Fried Smelt

The above photo was included in a Sista Dish post yesterday. Shortly after it posted, I received a message from Facebook friend, Mary Ann Albert Boucher,  that touched my heart and made my day!


Mary Ann Writes~ “OMG…never thought a photo of fried smelt would bring a tear to my eye, but smelt ice fishing was one of my father’s favorite hobbies and would go several times during the winter to Brunswick, ME with the guys and bring home hundreds and hundreds of them… he’d bag them up by the dozen or two or three and deliver them all over the city to friends……………as kids we would often go to the Cape Ann Marina or to a small bridge off of Essex Avenue and fish with him…Memories”

 Mary Ann, Thank you so much for sharing your memory triggered by the Fried Smelt photo posted yesterday. Your comment not only touched my heart and made my day, it once again reinforced why I’m so passionate about connecting younger generations to our past through celebrations of food, family and friendship. Each time I receive a comment like yours, it fuels my determination to find a way to share the remainder of my cookbook series with the world, and expand the ability to share step-by-step recipes, and childhood memories involving food on a larger scale. 

 Mary Ann Comments posted on FB regarding today’s Post~AWWWWW…thank you for the kind words Felicia…..isn’t it funny how a simple photo CAN bring the most awesome memories rushing back. You are a blessing to not only your family, but the entire community…God Bless! 🙂

Len Burgess Submits Edward B. Snow Hull Life Saving Museum Rowing Race

Hi Kim,

I thought you might like to see this and pass it on for the Cape Ann rowers. I don’t know if any entries came from here.
It’s a slideshow of the Edward B. Snow, Hull Lifesaving Museum rowing race that was held this past weekend in Hull. It sure doesn’t look like spring, does it.

Should Boston Voters Should Decide Whether or Not The City Of Boston Host The Olympic Games?

From WGBH Greater Boston Report

Support for Boston’s Olympic bid has tripped out of the starter’s gate. Now, Boston 2024 says it won’t go forward without public support. Boston City Councilor Josh Zakim and United Independent Party chairman Evan Falchuk have proposed ballot questions to gauge just that, hoping to provide a place for voters to weigh in, maybe even have the final say.

Should people get a say, maybe the final say, on whether the Olympics come to Boston? And if so, should it just be Bostonians? Or the whole state? Let us know.

One if by Land, Two if by Sea

Just a few of the things that caught my eye while out walking Marlin last night. Including “our beach” and bits and pieces of Bearskin Neck….such as one of the most photographed lanterns on Cape Ann. It was nice to be able to hit the streets again without having to battle colossal snow banks.  Bring on Spring!

Live Spring Training!! Bon Voyage!! #gloucesterma

And I’m off to FENWAY South to report on the RedSox! JetBlue would like to remind everyone leaving Boston that your leaving Title Town. BOOOOM #
