Lobster Carbonara at Oliver’s Harbor!!!

Joey recently reminded me of how great the lobster carbonara is at Oliver’s Harbor on Main Street, so we made a point to get down there to indulge. Thanks to Hannah, our server, for great service! We sat appropriately distanced at the bar, masks and sanitizing stations on full display so we felt safe. Jim had one of the specials that night: peanut crusted mahi mahi which he enjoyed very much. It’s one of our favorite places for the great food, welcoming atmosphere and friendly service.

Update on Magnolia Eagles

You may remember from my eagle post yesterday that I posed a question to our readers to assist in confirming the “intruder” who seemed to be harassing the 2 adult eagles flying high over the sky in Magnolia recently. I had originally thought it was a hawk, but upon closer examination of the photos, I wondered if it might be a juvenile.

I heard from Larissa Smith of the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey: “I work for the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of NJ on the NJ Bald Eagle Project. That is an immature eagle, probably a 3year old bird. It is interesting that the adults were carrying sticks which would indicate nesting somewhere in the area.” Thank you Larissa! Three eagles over Magnolia….here are a few additional photos.

Free webinar: “Dangerous Tempotation or Genuine Opportunity: ‘Factory Girls’ in Fact and Fiction”

Cape Ann Community

New England parents in the 19th century nervously allowed their daughters to leave the countryside for work in the textile mills of the new era. For young women it was a unique opportunity to participate in the growing cash economy, help support their families, and experience life outside the home. Did work in the textile factories represent a step forward in women’s independence? The mills and mill-towns were full of disease, dangerous machinery and duplicitous men! The conjunction of innocent young females and the rough life of the mills generated reams of sensational fiction in the 19th century—lurid tales warning young women to stay home if they wished to avoid ruin. In her illustrated talk, Elizabeth DeWolfe, professor of history at the University of New England, explores the promise and the perils of 19th century factory work for women through the essays, poetry and prose of the era. DeWolfe is…
