· We just got word that more of the Zodiacs we have on order have started to show up on the Production Log roster. This means that we’ll be seeing more of them roll in as we approach the New Year. This week’s featured incoming boat is a Medline 580. Some of you may be already familiar with this model, but the color schemes have been updated to now feature a very yachty white-on-white look. Think of this one as a bigger and more comfortable Yachtline. She’ll be rigged with a Yamaha 115 for plenty of oomph. She’s rated for 12 persons (comfortable seating for and has lots of storage in big lockers at bow and stern. Let us know if you want more info.

It is absolutely OUTRAGEOUS that small stretches of highway go years all screwed up and under construction and it doesn’t just affect one or two people, it affects the quality of life of the people of the entire state that drive.
Just ridiculous and I’d love for one person to give a reasonable explanation why these stretches take years to get done.

Thanks to Mark Ring for suggesting the 1640 Hart House in Ipswich! We had dinner there recently and left there saying to ourselves: “Well, that was fun!”. It advertises itself as featuring Elegant Country Dining, but don’t let that intimidate you as it did me at first. It’s apparently an old home made into a restaurant so the seating can be in any of several rooms. The room we were in included a bar and a fireplace, dark wood beams and comfy big chairs. You can see from the pictures that it was a bit dark in the room (you might want to bring some extra lighting along if you are of a certain age……) but this did not deter from the enjoyment of the atmosphere and food.
Jim had the Hart House chicken and I treated myself to the Grilled Tenderloin. The spring roll appetizer was especially delicious. The pace is relaxed and efficient. The food was done to perfection and the service was friendly and “just right”. Reservations are highly recommended and we plan to return someday.
Each year, the Gloucester Lyceum and Sawyer Free Library recognize outstanding volunteers for their efforts and dedication to the Libary. Last week, the prestigious Mary M. Weissblum Volunteer Award was presented in memoriam to Sharon Pablo for her two decades of service to the Library. During that time, Susan served on the Board of Directors in several capacities and then remained actively involved with the Library for many more years. Her longtime partner, Roger Armstrong, accepted the award on her behalf during the Library’s Annual Meeting on Wednesday evening, November 10.
“We are so honored to present Susan Pablo in memoriam with the Mary M. Weissblum Award,” said Assistant Library Director Beth Pocock in presenting the award. “Susan’s endless generosity of her time and willingness to share her vast expertise greatly helped to enrich the Sawyer Free Library and the lives of those who use and love it, for which…
