Sushi Roulette

So here’s a new fun party game for you all. Sushi Roulette. Be sure to click to see what happens when you lose. You may have seen us playing yesterday on GMG’s 500th podcast at the phenomenal Minglewood Harborside (who has amazing sushi)! The premise is that you have a platter of sushi and you take turns taking a piece to eat. Most are “normal” ……some are loaded with tons of wasabi. Yikes. Forgive the blurry screen grabs our our live stream GMG GloucesterCast ….but you’ll note that my sushi looks delicious…..Joey’s and Dave’s …well, not so much.

Hummingbird Don’t Fly Away

As you may know, hummingbirds have returned to our area and I’ve been curious to see how they will accept some of my new additions to the “Hummingbird Arsenal”. I fell prey to some click bait and ordered a long (red, of course) plastic feeding tube which displayed several hummingbirds feeding simultaneously in the ad……I was especially curious how that one would go. While I haven’t drawn more than 2 at a time to any of the feeders yet (and don’t really expect to), we have had an encouraging response to the bar (I call it their saloon), the new mini feeders AND the water fountain in addition to the traditional feeder. They regularly check out the water fountain which is really fun to watch. They really are a joy. At least one of them is very curious, often coming to the window or the sliding door to check on us.
