Well you can cross the classic @webergrills Redhead off the must have list

Northeast BBQ

Thanks Km Smith For Picking It Up a For Me.

It’s a 1992 O Code.

Picked up an oscillating tool to lop off what’s left of the one touch system in the bottom. There’s one of the wooden handles missing. The legs will clean up fine I’m thinking.

A few chips on the bowl.

She’ll be a cooker for sure. Probably spring for a new ash pan, ash sweeps and sand and spar varnish the handles that are on there. That’s the plan for now. I’m super anxious to see how much of the original color I can get back. She’s faded some but I’m thinking with some love and care it’s going to be gorgeous.

Thank you to Elise and Tucker at Cedar Rock Gardens for a super year in the garden. This was the couple’s first season opening the garden to the public and they did an outstanding job. Cedar Rock Gardens are a welcome addition to a fantastic and growing group of local farms. Their organic nursery and farm are brimming with a wonderful array of fresh flowers, produce, and seedlings. Every one of the plants from their nursery grew beautifully for me. Cedar Rock Gardens is closed for the year but I am so excited to be working again with them next year and will definitely be enrolling in their CSA 2017. See you in the spring!

marigolds-cedar-rock-gardens-copyright-kim-smithDid you ever wonder why marigolds play such a prominent role in Day of the Dead celebrations? They are referred to as “flowers of the dead” and with their vivid hues and citrusy fresh scent, marigolds are thought to guide spirits to the altars. And, too, flowers represent the ephemerality of life.

This Weekend in the Arts

Opening of the World Family Puppet Theatre!

We are announcing the exciting news of the opening of the World Family Puppet Theatre here in Gloucester!

The most recent venture of a continuous thread of multicultural arts programming for children for 39 years, since 1978, this endeavor seeks to instill in Cape Ann children a love for their world neighbors through engaging puppetry workshops which brings world cultures alive through their beloved folktales. Rob Newton, proprietor of the Cape Ann Cinema & Stage, has lovingly embraced the idea of a fun and educational puppetry experience at his theater at 21 Main Street in the West End of downtown Gloucester for the children of the Cape Ann area.

Know as “Dora the International Explorer”, Dora has brought an astonishing 35,000 programs, from International Festivals to Afterschool Programs to Teacher Trainings to Traveling Cultural Resource Kits to families, schools, libraries and the community of Cape Ann, and Massachusetts since 1978, earning her and the mother Ethnic Arts Center the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Service Award from the City of Somerville.

On the forefront of multicultural programming for children in the Boston area, Dora has presented her programs to Cape Ann for the past twenty years, including the Spar and Spindle Girl Scouts, Rockport New Years Eve, and Essex, Beverly, Hamilton, Peabody, Rockport, and Gloucester schools, preschools, museums, and libraries. What motivates her to work with local children, is a “friendship based model” a “microcosm” of the world where children actively take part in a teamwork setting.  Ancient tales contain the truths of how a problem can be solved peaceably.  Creating and bringing alive puppets incorporates all the arts and proves that magic still exists.

Two puppetry classes-one for preschoolers and one for school-age children will be offered, beginning on October 12.  Cultural theme Birthday Parties will also be available, including the celebration of Sicily, and Finland, amongst other local cultures.  No child will be turned away due to financial constraints or special needs.

At no other time in our country’s history has such a need existed-to inculcate the love for our fellow man.  Dora cites three of her mentors who have influenced her the most: Leo Tolstoy, Mahatma Ghandi, and Martin Luther King.  Here is a treasure tucked away in our intimate Cape Ann Cinema & Stage, just waiting for the local children to embrace.

Press the Puppetry button on the Cape Ann Cinema web page (capeanncinema,com) to register or pay.  Visit the Webpage of the Ethnic Arts Center at www.ethnicartscenter.org.  Take a photographic journey to the Facebook page of the World Family Puppet Theatre.  Call Dora Tevan at 978-546-3222 for more information.
