Join us as we dance to music from the musical West Side Story.  Many of the songs come from an album called The Songs of West Side Story.  Contemporary artists do their take on the classic Bernstein tunes.  Some choreography for this routine is from Casey who did Slumdog Millionaire and some from my teacher Katie Capelli and from me.  So it is also a choreographic compilation.  Say that three times fast!

If you are new to Nia with Linda, these streaming classes are free.  Share with anyone who you feel needs a little movement and fun in their lives during this period of social isolation.

So here is how it works.  It will be easier for you if you download the Zoom client for meetings for a desktop or laptop, or the app for phones and tablets.

A little something from POP Gallery

Peggy & Team Pop want to wish everyone a safe and satisfying holiday weekend.


We wanted to celebrate our 10th successful year on Main Street in Gloucester to mark our own INDEPENDENCE as a genuinely unique and welcoming one of a kind boutique/gallery! Many friends and families have helped us along the way to truly embody our mantra  “Shop local Stress less at Gloucester’s Emporium of Cool”. 10 years later we applaud our city and pat ourselves on the backs for sticking it out through thick & thin. Commitment to equality, great design at terrific prices, local & global goods and a quirky sense of humor are still our guiding principles.
Many many thanks!
Come in this weekend to sip a glass of wine or beer to celebrate!

Hawk Harassment

Some of you may remember we had a hawk nest in the backyard last year but they did not return to that nest this year and we have been seeing fewer hawks than usual. Lately, however, I have noticed a hawk watching me from the old Coast Guard tower nearly everyday on my walk. I like to think he waits around for me.

Anyhow, a little story developed recently as the hawk was harassed by red winged blackbirds and forced to move his perch twice to avoid them. It’s my understanding that bigger birds do not chase the smaller ones away when they are being harassed in order to save energy needed for hunting and daily life. I understand, but, c’mon Hawk…a little talon or beak action in their direction might give you a break…….

These pictures tell some of that story from Dolliver’s Neck.

2020 Q1&2: Real Estate Sales Update

Cape Ann Home

Our advice is about the same:
  • If you want to buy on Cape Ann, be ready to execute quickly and anticipate competition.
  • If you are thinking about selling, getting on the market now until Halloween will maximize your ROI.
  • If you want to sell but are concerned about finding a new home that makes sense, just rent one. There will be purchase “opportunities” in the future.

(PS: NOW would be a good time to buy in Boston.)

We hope this helps.
