It’s #NationalCheeseLoversDay

More Cape Ann Dining News-


Did you know it’s National Cheese Lover’s Day!? We’re not making this up – search the hashtag.
Now that you know about this glorious, ooey gooey holiday, you *of course* have to celebrate. Lucky for you, the folks at Minglewood Tavern have a plan. In addition to their already cheese-filled menu (hello Nacho Pile of Love and Pizza) the chef has added a few specials to pay homage to the best form of dairy, like Mozzarella Bites & Queso Dip.

Moral of the story: embrace your passion for Swiss, mozzarella, pepper jack, cheddar, American and goat – today is our day.

Male Allen's Hummingbird and Aloe Blossom www.kimsmithdesigns.comOrnithophily is the pollination of flowers by birds. Plants pollinated by birds generally have flowers with extra sweet, highly concentrated nectar. The blossoms are typically red or orange and have a long tubular shape, which allows them to hold ample amounts of the sugary sweet nectar. Birds that pollinate flowers, hummingbirds for instance, often have long bills, brushy-tipped tongues, and are light enough to perch on the flower, or display a form of flying called swing hovering, which allows them to drink nectar while suspended mid-air.

Nearly 130 species of North American plants have evolved ornithophilous associations. Bee balm, salvia, and native honeysuckle are examples of plants that are pollinated by both insects and birds.

THE POLLINATOR GARDEN ~ Please join me Tuesday, January 26th at 7:30 pm at the North Shore Horticultural Society, American Legion Hall, 14 Church Street in Manchester.

I hope to see you there!

Team Mila’s Cancer Fund


Hey Joey,
I wanted to send this along to you.  If you choose to post to Good Morning Gloucester or not that is fine.  I realize things can get tricky when you support one cause and not all of them.  I figured I would just share the story and you can do what you want with it. 

I don’t know if you ever met Terri and Bob Jones. They had 4 children; 3 daughters and one son.  Jessica (Jones) Martineau her husband and 3 daughters live in Nahant. Her 19-month old (twin) daughter was just diagnosed with cancer last week.  Friends and family have started a Go Fund Me page for them.
As I said the family is spread throughout the US, I believe one sister still lives in Gloucester.  I am sure there are many deep connections here and it would be great if the community could give back. 

Captain Howard Blackburn Photo Submitted by Len Burgess

HowardBlackburnGloucester’s famous Capt. Howard Blackburn (1859–1932) pictured aboard the famous fishing schooner Gertrude L. Thebaud in the early 1930’s. He was an American fisherman and during a winter storm in 1883 got separated in his dory and feared lost from his fishing schooner the Grace L. Fears out of Nova Scotia. He rowed his dory and shipmate across a wintry ocean, freezing his hands and feet badly. Despite losing his fingers at sea he later prospered as a Gloucester, MA businessman.
Yearning for adventure, he twice sailed single-handed across the Atlantic Ocean, overcoming his disability and setting record times for the crossing. Both his vessels are at the Cape Ann Museum.

Who Drove Whom?

We spent a few hours at the New England Auto Show over the weekend.  The boys are kind of car freaks…although, I have to admit, they practiced much more restraint this year than last year.  There was far less running, jumping, and skipping through the expo….and MUCH LESS button pushing (my buttons and the vehicle buttons).  They found their favorites, found my favorites, and made a mental list of what they’d like to buy later in life to write down at home in new “car show notebooks” that they asked to purchase on the way to Boston.

We were happy to bump into Wally who told us (without words) that his younger sister, Tessie, was at home sleeping, when asked.  It wasn’t much later that we bumped into (almost literally…oops) John Henry and his wife, Linda Pizzuti Henry.  While I was busy contemplating if they were on the hunt for a new family car, a new race car for Roush Fenway Racing, or some new delivery vehicles for The Boston Globe…Finn was more concerned with whether Wally drove the Henry family to the car show…or whether the Henry family drove Wally?  Because, naturally they came together.


I didn’t take a single photo….but the boys took many.  Here are a few of theirs.
