Join us Thursday evening at 6:30 for the premier of a new video about Gloucester’s flagship and National Historic Landmark during our online fundraiser Community Through Adventure. Just follow this link to the Schooner Adventure website: http://schooner-adventure.org/support/community-video/
The 24 minute video is free and open to anyone to watch and will be available for a week following the event. Any donations made during this fundraiser will go twice as far to support the educational mission of Adventure thanks to a generous pledge from the members of the board of directors to match your contribution up to $30,000.
We can’t sail this season because of the pandemic, but the maintenance of the vessel must go on. We think this video will explain why Adventure’s volunteers and staff continue to work hard behind the scenes to keep one of the last Gloucester fishing schooners going strong.

Moving is no fun….especially not in July when you’d like to be on the boat or at the beach and especially not when, after months from working from home, I am now back in my office trying to keep “normal” hours. That having been said, there are upsides. Our new home is coming together nicely and my super cute whale rug arrived yesterday just in time to put a smile on my face. We talk often on Gloucestercasts about how I’m a bargain shopper. This gorgeous rug was just under $50 and will looks perfect in our new living room. I ordered it online at RugsUSA.
I received a very nice surprise recently in the form of a gift from my brother and his wife following their visit here during which I was heard to rant about how hard it can be each day for the lefties of the world. Every single design is engineered for right handed use, not surprisingly as this is the majority of the population. Only an estimated 10% of us are lucky enough to be left handed.
And it’s OK. I am left handed but learned to do many everyday tasks with my right hand with tools made for right handed people: scissors, measuring cups, can openers, even brooms to some extent. Even those “statement ” coffee mugs are backwards for lefties…wise words of wisdom facing the wrong way in a left hander’s grasp. Mostly it’s OK but some thing still trip me up after all these years. Measuring cups are high on that list. I know some of you are wondering “How can you do measuring cup wrong??” Try it. Put that cup in your left and and take a look at the measures. Thank you.
Anyhow, my angst was acknowledged in their gifting of a number of items from The Left Hand Store. What a treat the oven mitt, the kitchen tools and the measuring cup especially are!!! Mostly, thank you for acknowledging the issues…….. so here’s a shout out to Lori and Chris and left handers out there (FOB Paula Ryan O’Brien and neighbor Rick)! Can I get an “Amen”?
