What are your silver linings? Mine is more quality time with Thatch. He truly enjoys long car drives, bike rides, and walks. Finn prefers his video games right now. One of two isn’t bad.

There’s a house in Rockport that we have thought maybe belonged to Adam Sandler for years….. met the owner the other day. Turns out he’s not Adam Sandler…. and he may not love people driving by looking for Adam. 😂

‘I Just Need the Comfort’: Processed Foods Make a Pandemic Comeback
Shoppers, moved by nostalgia and hunting for longer shelf lives, are returning to old standbys like Chef Boyardee and Campbell’s soup.

THANK YOU GOVERNOR BAKER AND THE MASSACHUSETTS DEPARTMENT OF CONSERVATION FOR PROTECTING PIPING PLOVERS AT DCR BEACHES!

So proud to live in Massachusetts, a state where the lives of threatened and endangered shorebirds that nest along our coastline, birds such as Least Terns, Piping Plovers, and American Oyster Catchers, are considered worth protecting.

Despite all that the state government is trying to manage with the pandemic at its very peak, a huge shout out to Governor Baker and his administration for continuing the fight to help protect Piping Plovers. The Governor’s list of essential workers includes natural resource workers and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation has placed symbolic roping and threatened species signs on DCR beaches. For over forty years, people have been working to rebuild the Piping Plover population and it will only add to the coronavirus tragedy if we cease protecting threatened and endangered wildlife.

The PiPls are having a tough time of it this spring, largely because so much of their overwintering habitat was ravished during last year’s Hurricane Dorian. Let’s all work together to share the shore with wildlife and to protect our own Good Harbor Beach Piping Plover family!

TOO FAT FOR CHINA STREAMING VIA THE GLOUCESTER STAGE COMPANY

TOO FAT FOR CHINA 
A Comic Look at the Agony of Adoption by PHOEBE POTTS 
WATCH ONLINE NOW!
 
Gloucester Stage Company debuted  TOO FAT FOR CHINA, a world premiere one woman show written and performed by cartoonist and storyteller and Gloucester resident Phoebe Potts, to sold our audiences at Gloucester Stage in November 2019 This comedic theater performance (debuting on National Adoption Day, Nov. 23) is a sequel to Potts’ graphic memoir, Good Eggs (Harper, 2010), which charts her travails with infertility and the endless rounds of treatments and miscarriages she and her husband endured. Roz Chast, the New Yorker cartoonist, called Potts’ memoir “sometimes funny, sometimes sad, but always honest, intelligent, and completely involving.” In Too Fat for China, Potts picks up the narrative with her quest for an international adoption. The story has a happy ending, but it twists and turns through fraught questions about family and race— subjects that feel particularly pertinent in our current political climate. Potts tackles it all, as she does life, with humor and irreverence.
Phoebe Potts is donating all proceeds from streaming to Gloucester’s Backyard Growers. 
 
The performance was filmed in front of a live theater audience and edited to fit your viewing screen.

Streaming Tickets are $9. Click https://gloucesterstage.com/too-fat-for-china/ to purchase and gain access Now through Sunday April 26th.

 
ABOUT THE COMPANY: Gloucester Stage is a professional non-profit theater providing a unique, intimate experience for audiences and committed to supporting new works. Located in a century old re-purposed brick warehouse on the waterfront of Cape Ann, the organization is led by Artistic Director Robert Walsh and Managing Director Christopher Griffith.

Tablets for Covid Patients to Communicate with Loved Ones

Noah Hano is very close to his goal of $30,000 to provide tablets to Covid nurses to use to help patients communicate with loved ones who are not allowed to visit hospitals.  At last look his Facebook fundraiser had raised just shy of $25,000 and Noah and his family have been able to deliver tablets to several local hospitals.

Can you help with the final push?  Read below and then please click on the link to see how you can help.  https://www.facebook.com/donate/898937720535998/907608029668967/

Ok, so we’ve raised close to $20,000 from 212 donors and over 1100 people have been invited to the fundraiser by sharing.

Every night before I go to bed I check the total raised and I’m amazed at the generosity!!! Yes, I started this fundraising effort but each and everyone one of you made it a reality! You all deserve a pat on the back.

You all represent the good in this world!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Help us provide the critical bridge between Covid patients and their families before they die or get intubated. As many of you probably know, the family members of Covid patients are not allowed to visit their loved ones in the hospital. Often times the only means of communication is Skype, Zoom or FaceTime. Some nurses have been using their personal devices to make the connection between patient and family to say their last goodbyes before they die or get intubated. This is not practical or sanitary. As more and more patients pile in there will not be enough time to lend their devices. Many hospitals are unable to provide the tablets or phones to the nurses. We have purchased a number of tablets for local hospitals and would like to continue to provide many more. If we can facilitate one last goodbye then our mission is complete. Please donate whatever you can! If you can’t donate money, we’ll accept your lightly used tablets. NOTE: ANY EXTRA MONEY WILL BE DONATED TO THE RED CROSS.
