identifying a USCG motor life boat in Gloucester

Hi Joey–

A friend named Glen owns this USCG motor life boat.    He’s elderly and plans to donate it to the San Francisco Maritime NH Park once he completes one more trip on her this coming summer.     When he saw this MLB photo over near Adventure and the Gloucester Maritime Center, he became quite excited.  Would you have any idea who owns it and how Glen could get in touch with the owner.  

Hope you can help  . . .

 Social Ambassador for Lung Force. Last year, upon hearing about the growing rate of lung cancer diagnosis in young women who have never smoked, I became a Social Ambassador for Lung Force to help educate and increase awareness.

Here are the Facts –

  • Lung cancer, the #1 cancer killer of women in the United States.
  • Every five minutes, a woman in the U.S. is told she has lung cancer.
  • The lung cancer death rate in women has more than doubled over the past 35 years.
  • Anyone can get lung cancer.

No! Towards the light Mr Asparagus, towards the light!

If you follow me on Facebook I posted first light of Mr Asparagus on April 28. That is a full week before I’ve seen one in my garden. Today I go to measure my asparagus (it’s a guy thing), and he seems to be retreating back into the earth. Come back! It’s a sunny day! In a week all your pals are going to be popping out of the ground and into the pan.

In a case of the early bird not getting the worm that damaged asparagus (behind little stiffy) was likely the first up but I used an iron rake to clear the leaves a week ago and must have whacked it right in the cojones (that would be the apical meristem.)

Eastern Point Light at dusk

imageThis is one of my favorite “unique” photos of Eastern Point Light.   It’s not unique because of the pretty skies behind it or the nice light on the house from the setting sun, it’s because this was taken when they were filming a movie there.  The cyclone fence is removed and its staged with boats and old fence posts.  Love how natural the scene looks.   It was a short lived view!

Gloucester’s Tim Sanborn Owns Cazeault Solar & Home and Explains How Solar Is A Complete No-Brainer Investment

Tim Breaks down the crazy amount of State and Federal Tax credits and SREC’s available which has Solar paying for itself within 3 or 4 years and after that actually puts money in your pocket.

Solar is now at a point where not only does it make financial sense, it’s actually one of the best investments you can make, paying you back a return!

Tim Graduated from Gloucester High School in 1971 where he was the captain of the football team and the company that he owns Cazeault Solar and Home did roughly 80 installs on the North Shore (a majority of which were on Cape Ann) last year alone.

Call to talk to Tim at 978-281-4625  He’s local and he’s a straight shooter.
