How much does it cost to take a yoga class on the North Shore? About $15.

So why is class $10 at

Cape Ann Power Yoga?

Over 15 years ago when Elizabeth started practicing yoga,

it cost


$10 made it affordable for her to drive into Cambridge to practice with Baron Baptiste. And practice a lot. Practice so much that when Baron told Elizabeth that he needed another teacher, and that it was going to be her – she couldn’t refuse.

All because of $10 yoga.

Live Baby Back #Ribs Smoke Update At

Check out the live smoke and results at

Two hours in I wasn’t satisfied with the color, and the Weber Smokey Mountain had been cruising along at 225.  I opened the fuel door and saw quite a bit of charcoal had been used up.  Figuring we needed another two hours of heat and looking for a little more heat I fired up 2/3 a chimney of briquettes and added them to the charcoal basket.  I also mixed up a container of a couple of tablespoons of Stubbs BBQ sauce, a couple of ounces of apple cider vinegar and a tablespoon of tabasco sauce and spritzed the ribs.


The snow has stopped, it’s just raw and cold out but the extra lit charcoal has helped the temps on the pit climb.


2:45PM Pull the ribs off the pit and foil them.


A drizzle of honey, a drizzle of Sweet Baby Rays and a light sprinkle of brown sugar. Ribs foiled meat side down and back on the smoker.

Holy Crap I Can’t Believe I Promised Everyone Smoked #Ribs In A Snowstorm Live Blog

Follow along for the live snowstorm Baby back ribs live smoke session at

Northeast BBQ

All month long I’ve been looking forward to the first Patriots playoff game to smoke up some ribs for the crew.  Babyback ribs were on sale so I picked up three racks and looked at the forecast yesterday which said the rain and snow was supposed to stop between noon and 2pm today.

Well fast forward to today and there’s no rain at all, instead it’s a full on sideways huge wind snowstorm.

Not to be deterred by the weather we forge ahead!

Babybacks were on sale at Stop and Shop yesterday but they didn’t have them in yet and would be frozen so I went to Market Basket, paid a little more from them but they were in the case unfrozen.


Took the ribs out of the cryovac and gave them a thorough rinse.


Next piercing the sinewy membrane on the bone side of the ribs and peeled off…

If You Haven’t Seen The New Star Wars Movie- Get To It.

It was the best money I’ve spent on a movie in a long time. Loved it.

I went to see it last night with our peeps James and Anna Eves Bangladesh and Craig and Hanna Kimberley. Anna and Hanna are two huge feminists and Hannah pointed out that the official action figure set didn’t include the female star of the movie who absolutely crushed it as the strong endearing lead character.  So, mystified as to how that could be, I googled it and yep came out with the confirmation.

The “Fire THAT guy” award of the day goes to the dope who made the decision to leave the incredible break-out lead strong female character out of the official Action Figure set.

THAT GUY needs to go.
