Northern Spy Monday / 9-30-19

Northern Spy Monday EveryOne
  Oh, Happy Day, Oh Happy Day, that's right folks it's a wild and wacky Monday morning as we finishing up the second trimester and set up to head into the final 1/3 of the year. This is a new week and new day and so much to look forward to. So before we do anything else, let's take a moment to give thanks, to give praise, to find a moment of meditation, then find those hikers, get em pulled on and laced up and take hold that staff in your umbrella stand and let's prepare to head out. Exciting times lie before us this week and we need to be ready to take advantage of each and every opportunity. We have been so blessed along the way and I expect no difference this week. So many can not get out of bed this morning, so many have nothing to eat, so many do not even have a place to call home or lay their head at night that is out of the elements. So keep looking up, keep your eyes focused on what needs to happen before us and keep an eye on the prize at the end of the week. Concentrate on what is before us that we have control over as we go along. Not what is behind us, and not which is out of our grasp in the future, but take one day at a time and one situation at a time and take care of business as it comes our way. So, remember along the way there are those that need our help, be prepared to stop, listen and help. Then get moving. Now we need to get this day going, so let's get moving, better to be at the front and lead than a lagger and be left behind. And as we go, let's make us a most Happy, Happy all day long and share it with whomever will accept the gift.

Maltese Falcon Friday / 9-27-19

Maltese Falcon Friday EveryOne
   Fantastic Fun Friday morning to you, let's get our sleepy lids open and let the sunshine seep into those eyes and wake up that brain of ours. This is that wonderful, glorious day we look forward to from that waking moment on Monday mornings. This is that day when it is all said and done that we get to through caution to the wind and party hardy. But we have go to finish and finish strong, if yesterday was not a lazy day this day is definitely for the deeply motivated who want to see all the glory shine. We want all that we have been working on to come to a good conclusion, a strong finish, an outstanding outcome. We want quantity as well as quality and we want to finish this day this week on a high note not a bad or sour note. This will be a run through the dessert, not stroll through the park, so let's start by putting the hikers away and put the staff back in the umbrella stand and pull out the sprinters and a good hat. The sun will be doing all it can do to beat you down so be sure to lather up well all over. The looser you can go and the barer you can bare it the better it will be, and will help you move freely from hot spot to hot spot and without being bound. Now what has the theme of the week been, have you fig-ured it out yet? Well each name is an edible variety of Figs, Yum, I Iove figs, love, love, love them. OK so much for that, now back to the task at hand, and that is finishing this week on a high point. But for some, they have fallen and for a lack of another way to say it, they can't get up. They are so down that they don't know which way is up. They need our help, so we will stop and listen and see them to the next care center to get the help they need. Give as you would want to be given to and give with no expectations in return. All humanity deserves the best respect and treatment, even if we don't understand them or even really agree with them. So just do it, do good and move on. Now moving on, we need to get this day on the goes and give it all we've got and give it our best. Leave nothing to chance, nothing to question and give it all you've got. Now let's get to the line and get this day going and in the process go make us a most Happy, Happy, not just for today but for the whole weekend long.

Yellow Long Neck Thursday / 9-26-19

Yellow Long Neck Thursday EveryOne
   Up n At-Em folks, the sun is not getting up any earlier for a long time and we need to get this day going. We have made it this far and really not to worse for the wear, but this is not the time to stop and give up or feel like this is the day to take a lazy pill. I know today is not an easy day, and I call it the workhorse day of the week. But it is a necessary evil to get to the end of the line and we need to take care of business today rather than putting it off to another day. I know many of us think that why do today what you can put off and do tomorrow kind of mentality is one to consider. And some days are harder than others to put that kind of thinking behind us and move forward to do what we must do. First things first we need to get those hikers on and take hold that staff. We are not getting off this mountain without proper footing and our support staff. Next be prepared to an attitude of gratitude in all you do and when the opportunity comes to help someone is dire need along the way, we take the time to stop, listen and help in whatever way is best. We need to ready to take care of business in that there have been loose ends flapping all over the place right since the get go of today. We need to take account of what has been working, and what hasn't been and cut loose the bad and reign in the good. See that all that we have been and are working on by the end of the day is set up for the final journey. So be prepared for some headaches, some mind benders, and  brain exploders. Be prepared to work hard from start to finish, as we seek to get off this mountain, and clear the tree line. So let's stop talking about it and let's go get it done, we have a lot to do but we are able and capable of getting it done, all of it with great expectations. Now let's get to the starting line and go make us a most Happy, Happy all day long, and no hiding the joy, go forth and share it each and every step you take, all day long.

Some Fall Thoughts & Fresh Peach Cobbler / 9-25-19

      This is the time of year that most of us who live here on the Cape wait for every year. OK a lot of us, not sure I can say most. But this second season as many call it is one of the best times to be on the Cape. Still much of our favorites are open and going strong, And a majority of the great restaurants are open as well. There are a handful who have already closed down but the places I like will be open till at least Columbus Day and then the next mark will be Thanksgiving. The leaves are still green, the water still warm and the sand on the beach, well you can actually find a spot to put your blanket. But time is coming for the leaves to turn and then the walks through the paths and woodlands and marshlands will become more brilliant and finally open up to give spectacular views that are not seen when all the greenery was hiding it. Now for me and most year rounders is, we work most the time when the sun is out, so many of us need to find fun ways and places to go and do when the moon is out. Oh well we live for the weekends and pray the weather is grand and the temperatures stay warm. Ok so at least I do. But we have the fall festivals, and Halloween fun going on. We have the Oyster Festival coming up and local spots love to do seasonal gatherings with season grub and drink. I'm not an overly big person on everything pumpkin unless it is in pie, maybe an occasional bunt cake, a pumpkin cookie or bread. Past that, keep it, but there is so much more, from apple crisps, hot chocolate and s'mors along with no bugs campfires. And around the Cape the cooler it gets the more you can find these going on in back yards are on the beach. What do you say, wanna come join us? We are open for business, and it really is a fun place to be this time of year. As a kid I never got to come to the Cape as I was in school and marching band and Dad was back behind the pulpit and doing his duties as a pastor. So fall vacations were just not available to us. But if you can it is worth coming and experience all we have at least once or twice before the real cold sets in. Ok hope I have peeks your curiosity some, and hope you can come visit us here on wonderful old Cape Cod.    
      Small business report time: it's that time of year for apple picking so where on Cape Cod can you go and pick apples? Well I have heard from several that Crow Farm located at 34 Charles St, Sandwich is also on facebook and find on the web at They are not only a farm side stand run business but also an orchard and do baked goods and most other things you would expect to find at a good family owned farm business. Right now they are open Monday-Saturday 9am til 5pm and Sunday 10am til 5pm. check out their web site their facebook page and their farm stand and orchard. Get out there and get picking as apples won't last on the tree forever. 
      Since I am doing small farms right now I have to mention: Fluffy Butt Farm, Eggs and Education, find them on facebook and Instagram @ fluttybuttfarmdesign and located in Foresdale  near Mashpee. They specialize in Eggs and more, chickens, ducks, quail, and turkeys. This is a place you need to keep in mind as the holidays are getting close. So much to choose from and to get from a local. Besides I just love the name. LOL
      Last place is always some kind of food, this week I need to push my second favorite breakfast place Hole-in-One in Orleans at 98 MA-6A, or find them on facebook, and instagram and their website They are open Monday-Sunday 5am-3pm year round. They do breakfast and lunch and their bakery goods are to die for. I love to go and sit up in the fishbowl and watch the traffic go by in the warmer months or sit in the back room in the corner in the winter as it is a cozy place to enjoy a great cup of coffee and great breakfast, then take some donuts home with you. But warning if you walk in and see something you want, don't wait cause they might not be there when you leave. Trust me I have had it happen. So get to Hole in One and enjoy some great food for the morning, brunch time and lunch. 
      Welcome my friends and I hope you are enjoying this unusually warm start to autumn. We have beach weather all over the Cape and we have been able to accommodate many tour groups and are starting to see the school kids come around as well. We take them all around the grounds and visit the radar hut, were we take weather readings the old fashioned way as well as take them back inside and show them the modern way. We take that up into the town and to the beacon room or lamp room and talk about how the beacons have changed over the years and the pluses and minuses to the changes. We talk about how each light house has its own signal pattern and how navigators would travel up and down the coast or airplanes without navigation instruments could make it to their destinations by just following the beacons. We take them around to the life saving station and talk bout how the life guards lived their daily lives and how many of them were volunteers and not paid staff and how the Coast Guard actually got started. We cover a lot and the kids really seem to have fun and really have some great questions. With the warmer weather we have also been able to get a lot accomplished on putting together the autumn decorations, mazes and trails, that will get started on October 11 and go through Nov 3 on the weekends. I will be bring more to you next week on this fun event we have each year here at the lighthouse and station. Well I know this is short gathering but with the warm weather it has been busy, busy, busy. So we need to get moving, I hope you can have a great and wonderful this next week and especially if you can do it right here on old Cape Cod. 
      As many of you know this has been a fun year for desserts with Cobblers and Crisps. I know we are just a tad behind on the peach crops but there are an abundant amount of fresh preach family fruits available that could be substituted if for some reason you can't find any peaches. One of the other things I like about Cobblers and Crisps is that they are so stinking easy to make it is not funny, and I am not talking about getting your fruit out of a can. So these can be fairly healthy if you watch the amount of sugar you add to your recipe. Remember you can play with this and do sugar substitutes to help in health issues. So before my mouth starts watering too much. Just for the record this is another church related recipe and not my own, but I am sure you could dig not so far and find several that are near identical to this one. So now, let's get on with the show:

      This week's recipe: Fresh Peach Cobbler
   2-4      cups      fresh sliced peaches
      2      cups      sugar ( you can go lighter on this)
      1      stick       butter
   3/4      cup        flour
      2      tsp         baking powder
                            pinch of salt
   3/4      cup        milk

      Mix sliced peaches with 1 cup of sugar. Melt butter in oven in very deep casserole dish. Mix flour, baking powder, salt, and milk together and pour into melted butter. Do not stir. Put peaches on top of mixture. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 45 minutes to an hour. 
      ( The contributor nots this can also works well with all fruits. So have fun and be creative)   

Blue Giant Wednesday / 9-25-19

Blue Giant Wednesday EveryOne
   Rise and Shine and give a glorious shout of praise that we have made it to half-way day. Hump day, over the to day, the day when we hit that midday mark we will step over the line and be closer to the finish line than back to the beginning. The journey may still have half way to go we are also half way finished. The glass is not just half empty but it is half full and expectations, and outlooks and excitement. There is so much left to do and get it right before it is all said and done. We need to open our eyes and our minds to what can still be accomplished not what hasn't been completed yet. We need to seize the opportunities and make the most out of everything that comes out way. And the best way I know to get to the top of this mountain is to first get those hikers on and take hold of that staff. We have a lot of rocky roads to cover and I ain't talking ice cream either. When we get to the top, we will take the time to stop for a moment, turn and and take note of just how far we have come, then turn, make a mental map of where we need to be heading too, then pick up our stuff and get moving. The peak of the mountain is only 1/2 the day, so we will have another 1/2 to go and finish up strong going down the back side fo the mountain. Along the way we will come on those that need our comfort, our help, so we will stop, we will listen and we will see them to the next care center, then get moving.. Make the most of your day, make the most of every situation, give all you've got and all you've got give it all and may we have the best day of the week yet. Now let's get this parade going and go make us a most Happy, Happy all day long and share it to everyone we come in contact with today.

   So here we meet again, another day another adventure another path to travel. So yesterday is gone, and tomorrow is a world away, this is today and all we can take care of. So before anything else, let's start by seeing what is so good, we were able to get out of bed, so many can not. We were able to get dressed with clean cloths, so many don't have. We are able to get something for breakfast, many will go hungry today, You have the abilities to see, to hear and to smell, many do not, or can not. You see, even in the worst of times there is so much to be grateful for, so let's get it together and get those hikers pulled on, and take hold that staff and let's get this parade going. Along the way we will come on those in desperate times, be ready to stop, listen and help in any way you/me/we can and see them to the next care center.

Black Mission Monday / 9-23-19

Black Mission Monday EveryOne
   Glorious Morning to you and welcome to a brand new day and brand new week. Last week is behind us, good, bad or as indifference as it was. A new journey, a new adventure lies before us and all things with it are new. Ok let's be real here, not all things are new, for many of us, it's the same old job, with many of the same old issues and situations. But there comes a time that we much choose to either change the things we can not live with or learn to live with the things we can not. Trying to look at each day and each week as a new journey can help. Taking one step at a time, one opportunity at a time, one you name it at a time is all we can do. So first step is get your brain out of its bed and let's get those hikers pulled on and find that staff we left in the umbrella stand. Next recognize that we will come on those who are in dire need of attention. We will take the time to stop, listen to their need, then help in any way we can, including seeing them to the next care center. Then back to the path and way that we must travel this day. Helping others is one of the best prescriptions to helping our own attitudes with a heart of gratitude. So in all things today, look for the new, the opportunities, the adventures, journeys, and take advantage of all you can. Now it's time to get this day going, let's get it to the starting line and on the mark, and through all things let's go make us a most Happy, Happy all day then share it with everyone we come in contact with.

Baby Boo Friday / 9-20-19

Baby Boo Friday EveryOne
   Goooood Moorrrrning everyone, and how do you do? Time to rise and shine and give some glory to the one who got us this far and to whom will get us the rest of the way through this final day. That's right it is FRIDAY, that awesome wonderful, glorious day we strive to get to right from the get go. So what do we need to do to get this day going? First after you get out of that comfy bed of yours, you can put those hikers away and put the staff in the umbrella stand, next find those sprinters and get them on and laced up, then find a good hat or visor to shield your face and eyes from the sun that will do it's best to blind you and then let's get heading to the starting line. What to expect today, is a long, hot dessert marathon where more sprinting is the name of the game than what we have been used to the rest of the week. As we go along today we need to keep out wits about us, yes we need numbers, we need quantity, but we can not sacrifice quality just for numbers. Take those lines those projects that we paired down yesterday and let's see them through to the end. Let's make the best out of every opportunity that comes our way, accept and take those challenges head on and strive to give our best in all we do. I understand that most of us get this, that we hear it day in and day out, but really on a Friday when we are already exhausted and tired. We are just having issues getting going let alone now they want more out of us for what? So what is the theme week you ask, some of you thought I forgot about it,, nope,, the them has been different types or name of Pumpkins. Not even a lousy pat on the back anymore and looking for a thank you is like looking for a needle in a haystack. But if for nothing else yourself and those around you who do care, who do give a crap, who have been there all along and supported you from the very beginning. Do it for your family, do it for those loved ones, do it for you. Those above you in their golden palace chairs and stock market windfalls only care about numbers, but that is not who you do it for. so forget them and concentrate on what needs done. Now along the way, hard times, depression, health and mental attaches do not take a break just because it is Friday. They seem to want to work harder, so as we come on those in true need, we will still take the time to stop and listen and then do whatever we can to help. Then if need see them to the next care center and get back onto the trail and put those toes in the sand and hoof it all in to the finish line. So, with all that, let's get to the starting line. focus, put a smile on our face, get that sparkle in the eye and let's go make us a most Happy, Happy all day and all weekend long and share it with however we can and where ever we can.

Casper Thursday / 9-19-19

Casper Thursday EveryOne
Hi-de-ho there neighbor like persons, I hope you had a great day yesterday. It had its challenges, it had its ups and downs, but yesterday is behind us and today is before us. So let's start by getting our focus on the right objective and and then get our fuzzy butt out of its proverbial cranial bed. That's right need to actually get our of our cozy place and get moving to get this day actually going. So up, up, up and at em we go, and we will get it together and we will go after it all today. Now a good place to start is getting those hikers on and taking hold of that staff. The trip today will take us down and off this mountain we have been working on since the get go on Monday, and we will not only get out of this tropical jungle but we will clear the tree line and get out into the clearing. But what is it going to take, this is the workhorse day of the week, this is the day we have to weed the garden, pull out all those choke weeds, get those loose ends rained in and, make the decision to what's working and what's not. What is worth keeping and mending and what you need to cut ties with and move on. This is a wicked trying day but we have to get through it to get to Friday in one piece and with any sanity left. There are many that we will see today that need our help. We will need to work together to make sure they are all attended to and that we don't burn ourselves out trying to help them all. while others turn a blind eye. Be ready to help those you can't help themselves and stop, listen then see them to the next care station and move on. Now, we have a lot to do today, we need to give it our best so when the end of the day comes we have no regrets to anything that went on. All we can say is, ready or not, let's get to that starting line and let's get this day on the go. And as we do let's go make us a most Happy, Happy all day long and share it to everyone that you come in contact with.

Coming Fall & Last Minute Grilled Steak / 9-18-19

      Well folks what do we say this time of year, We are back to making left hand turns, Ok during the week, but not the weekends yet? We can go out to dinner and not have an hour wait in line. And we can check out a beach without have to feel like we are in a sardine can. But then again, the temperatures are starting to change and daylight seems to be leaving as quickly as the tourists. Then again, we have our local breweries starting to brew a lot of seasonal beers and that is always a fun thing, along with donut and pastry shops are getting into the act. And it's starting to get into soups and stews and chilis months. Sorry I am not a warm weather soup and stew person and even chowders I prefer when it gets cooler. The only thing the Cape really does not do well in fall on is changing of leaves. For that you need to go more interior than out here, but if that is the only thing I have to find fault with the Cape on, well that just ain't to bad now is it. Fall is just around the corner the corner so get your ready on, (after we go through another warm up period) and enjoy all that Cape Cod has to offer this coming fall season. More to come later on this,,, I love second season here, and if you are able to experience it let's all have a great and wonderful, right here on Old Cape Cod.
      Ok so most the times I don't do chain restaurants cause I really enjoy promoting the local spots and all the hard work into what they do, and put out some really good food. But I have to mention two, first because they both do a lot for the community right here on Cape Cod but I know for a fact one is locally owned as well, and both places employee locals and pay taxes to the local communities. So I have no problem with these places. 
      First up is Chick-fil-a, located at the corner of 155 Enterprise Rd, and RT132. I have had a chance to meet one of the owners, who took the time, not know who I was to just talk to him. His wife is the real boss (LOL not kidding) I have been back several times and fail to see him out wiping tables, delivering trays of food or taking orders from customers. They are not afraid to get their hands dirty and do what is needed. I love it when I see owners of quick food restaurants take real ownership and then take time to talk with their patrons. And on top of it has really good food. 
      Second is the 99 located off RT 28 located at 14 Berry Ave at the corner of HIggins Crowell Rd and RT 28. Again the 99 has always been big in the community, they hire locals to work year round, and their food is consistently good and run specials that help us no to fat in the wallet people. Although we may be fat other places. LOL. I mention these two places because I know we here on the Cape tend to downplay chain shops, food or otherwise. But there is a place for them and there is a time for them. So if they are doing a good job in the community and are serving good food why not support them and their establishments. So stay in touch with the 99 and go enjoy a nice sit down meal that won't devour your wallet or pocketbook. There are 4 on the Cape FYI by the way, I have only eaten at the West Yarmouth one. 
      So much for the chain good eats, for a local Mom and Pops that I enjoy is Jasons Tavern located in Patriot Square in South Dennis. This is a locally owned and run bar and grill that has more than just good grub, they have excellent meals, budget friendly early bird specials and a great staff. They are also known for their hamburgers which are big, no huge and come with large sides. They have great soups and the desserts are to die for. So if you need or want to stay local try out Jasons Tavern in South Dennis. 
      Hello my friends and glad you came back to visit this old man. What do you think of this crazy weather, more so the temperatures and this up and down like a yo-yo. One day we have freeze warnings out for parts of the New England territories than the next we have summertime like warmth in the 80s. So this weekend we should have a bustling place going on and I could not be happier as it looks to be a great weekend. The lighthouse will be open for tours from 9-5 both Saturday and Sunday so grab the kids and grab grandma and come on out to the Cape. With clear weather predicted the views from the Lamp Room should be spectacular. The waters are still warm and swimming is still in season, but so are the Great Whites so be smart and swim in pairs. Great Whites prefer it that way, kind of like twin lobster dinners to humans. Ok that was a funny, seriously, give an old man a break. Anyway, I know a lot of folks will be taking their boats out for one last spin before the end of the recreational season, so be careful and take your time in and out of the harbors. I have also hear rumors that stripers are starting to run again as well, so you will see your numbers of fisherman out there as well. So take it easy and be careful. Did I mention that we have someone coming in to do apple cider plain and sugar donuts, so bring your appetite and bring your wallets, it's one of our last big fund raisers. So last note, folks have been asking when are the fall decorations and Halloween functions going to be happening. Well I will have those up and ready for October Friday the 11th and go Friday through Sunday , and hours will be 4 till 9 each day. The last day will be November 3rd. Put it on your calendars and hope to see you then. Will have more information in the coming weeks. Well need to get running so have a great and wonderful especially if you can do it right here on old Cape Cod.    
      Well some of you are asking me right now, who can afford Steaks. I agree so use whatever kind of beef cut you can afford. If you shop smart and keep your eyes open you can get some real deal out there. If you have not look into them if you are able to swing it I would highly suggest getting a food saver type vacuum food storage machine. You can buy extra when on sale or you have a few extra dollars available to you. Split up bulk packages, get a larger piece of beef and slice your own steaks, it is much cheaper and then vacuum seal them and freeze them. They will keep much longer than in just foil. This looked rather tasty and sometimes we seem to get into ruts with different cuts of meat. So when I come on some thing that looks good and out of my norm It's worth a try and this is one of them. So just cause fall is coming soon (by the calendar) does not mean you put the grill away. So get it fired up and let's do some last minute steaks, (whatever cut you like or can afford) and enjoy a nice grilled steak. Now on with the show: 

      This week's Recipe: Last Minute Grilled Steak
      1      tsp      garlic
   1/2      tsp      cumin
   1/4      tsp      pepper
      1      tsp      kosher salt
   1/2      tsp      chile powder
      4      12 oz  1" thick Ribeye steaks (or whatever cut you have)
              extra virgin Olive Oil

      Start with making the rub, in a small bowl, mix all dry ingredients together. While you are mixing the rub, pull steaks out of refrigerator and allow to stand at room temperature for about 30 minutes before grilling. Lightly brush or spray steaks with the olive oil. Season the steaks with the rub pressing the spices into the meat. Grill over direct heat until cooked to desired doneness. This next step is too often overlooked, Let Steaks rest for 3-5 minutes after taking off grill before serving. 

Big Rock Wednesday / 9-18-19

Big Rock Wednesday EveryOne
   Hello, hello, hello, and how do you do? Are you ready for today's journey, are you ready to accept the challenges before us? Are you prepared to take advantage of all that comes your way? NO? Oh, Why not? Your brain is still in its comfy place in your cranium wanting to sleep away the morning? Well no can do my friend, like it or not this is a brand new day with places to go things to do and people to see. We have got work to get done, mountains to climb over the time and adventures to conquer. So no sleepy, sleep, but wakey, wakey and let's get up and at em. Time to pull on those hikers and give that staff, this is rock climbing day and to think that by mid-day we will be mid-way through the week. We will be on the top of this mountain planting our flag and as when we do, we need to take a moment to look back and see just how far we have come then turn and make a mental map of where we need to go then pick up our stuff and get moving down the backside of the hill. Folks this is Wednesday the day that once we cross over that line at the top of this dirt mound we will be closer to the end than back to the beginning. So rise and shine get your brain in gear see what we can do to make this one heck of a day. Ok, I know for some of you that is stretching it. The week has been lousy and the thought of pushing on is daunting, but life does not stop and neither can we. The chance to just check out is not an option, so as much as it seems overwhelming we need to get it going. Remember that there will be those along the way that are in much greater peril than we are and some of the best medicine for the blues is helping someone else. Be ready, be open, all of us need to be on our guard for those that need our help. See to it they get to the nearest help center then move on. It will do you as much good as it will do them. Now we have a day to go after and opportunities to take advantage of and an adventure to be open to. So let's go do it and as we do, let's go make us a most Happy, Happy and share it every step of the way.

Big Mac Tuesday / 9-17-19

Big Mac Tuesday EveryOne
   Welcome back my friends to a show that never ends (thank you ELP). So we made it through that Monday jumble of chaos, and here we sit on the ledge of Tuesdays journey. A day full of redirections, corrections, and hoping that missed opportunities are not overlooked today. What is there that we did not do so well yesterday? Can we change it, then change it, if we cannot can we live with it, then change it. If we cannot live with it, and can not change it on our own, seek help from those around you to make a way. For the most part, those of you who are reading this, we need to take account of a few things, We were able to get our of bed this morning, many can not. We were able to get a breakfast of our choosing this morning, many can not. We have the opportunity to work, many can not or do not have that ability. the list goes on and on. Is your glass half empty or half full. Are you willing to be poured out so that you can be refilled? Or are you holding on to what needs changed to hard that you cannot let opportunities and goodness refill you? Be open, be ready, be on the lookout to give thanks at every corner you come on and make the most of the adventure and path you must travel, so many can not. Seek ways to be good, do good and act good in every step you take. The rewards are not always immediate, but the long term payback is uncountable. The greedy die holding onto their last dollar with no one to care for them, but those who give freely in all aspects of life will see a reward with unseen returns for a lifetime of blessings. As we get ready this morning for our next leg of this weeks journey, as we pull on our hikers and take hold that staff, be open to seeing those who need our helping hand to get to the next care center. Be open to stopping and listening, and doing what is needed, then move on with the days next challenge. The daylight is getting shorter so we need to get a move on it and give it all we've got and make the most of everything that comes our way. And as we do let's go make us a most Happy, Happy all day long and give it away to all who come our way.

Baby Bear Monday / 9-16-19

Baby Bear Monday EveryOne
   Magnificent Monday morning to you all, and may the sun shine upon your every step and may you sore like eagles amongst a rafter of turkeys. How can one be so pleasant on a Monday morning, first i have to work at it, no i would rather be in bed still asleep but, as most I have to be up, I have bills to pay a mortgage to make, I like to eat, and I enjoy some of the finer things this has to offer, which most cost money. You may have other drives that could make it worth wild to be up and about, like your kids, your parents, someone you love. While some of you just are up out of habit, out of restlessness, and other issues surrounding your life. But the bottom line is we are all here at this time in this moment in space, together for what? Well for some moral support in getting our day going. Whether you are a morning person, I really don't like morning people, I think there is something totally wrong with them, or you are up due to necessity, like me, we might as well make the most out of it for what it's worth. So put the blues, the boo bahs and the sulky grumpiness away and decide we are going to make the best out of whatever comes our way today. We have the opportunity to give our best, we our best and strive to make the most out of whatever is there for us, or not. Let me tell you, not just for your sake but for those around you, putting a smile on your face, a spark in your eye and a hip in your hop will help the day go much better and much quick than the opposite. So come take a ride, come take a ride, come take a ride with me, on this wild and wacky trail we call life and let's were it will take us and what good we can bring it. Along the way we will come on those who are down, out, hurting in ways we have never seen. But we will take the time to stop, listen and help in whatever way we can, including seeing them to the next care center. Be good, do good and move on, it's the least we can do for another human life, whether they are the same faith, same nationality, same political background or walk in life. Live every moment of today to bring a smile on all those around you and make a better way for all of us to travel. Now it's time to get that footwear on, for me it's the hikers, pulled on and laced up. Take hold of that staff that you might lean on in times of need and to ward off those creatures who seek to do you harm and let's get this day going on a new journey, a new path, set for new destinations and new opportunities. And as we go, let's make us a most Happy, Happy all day long and share it with all that cross our paths.

Brown Sugar Friday / 9-13-19

Brown Sugar Friday EveryOne
   Rise up, Rise up, it's that wonderful, magnificent day we call Friday. It's a bright sunny sky out there, even if you are having to do some soaring to see it. But where I am at the sun is as bright as can be. And so should our attitudes be as we have reached that final day that we make that trek to the promised land we call the weekend. But we have lots to do and a lot of ground to cover before we get to party hardy. So let's start by putting those hikers away along with that staff and pull out those sprinters and get yourself a good hat or visor. This run will be across a dessert floor with no shade, and dessert critters that want to take you down. go light and then even lighter if you can do it as this is a race against the elements and not your neighbor. We will be sure to keep our eyes open for those who have fallen before us, those who are disoriented and lost, those who are confused and bewildered and we will stop, and listen and then give them any help that we can and make sure they get to the care center for what we can not provide. And once you have done good, move on, it just part of life and the decent thing, to help your fellow human being. Now this is going to be a long day and we will need to keep our focus, keep that eye on quality and the head doing the numbers crunching. But you can not do one without the other and we will be held accountable for all we do or don't do. Speaking of accountability if I don't cough up the theme of the week I am going to be in dutch by many so with no further ado the theme has been: Different Flavors Bacon comes in. Now that we have that taken care of, don't you think it's about time to get this show underway? We have much to do, places to and people to see. So let's go make us a most Happy, Happy all day and all weekend long and share it each step of the way. Hi ho, hi ho it's off to work we goooooo.

Pecan Smoked Thursday / 11-12-19

Pecan Smoked Thursday EveryOne
   Good Morning Mr Sunshine another day another chance at life and the opportunity to get it going in the right direction, even if we have to do it backing down a one way street the wrong way with our nose pointed in the right direction. You get it? In other words we need to find a way to dig deep today and do what we can to see this week get better. First thing is the recognize that we really do have it a lot better than so many people out there. We have a roof over our heads, we have clean water and food. We have access to medical care and supplies, we have cloths to wear, we have family and friends. What does it take to get this through our heads. So on this workhouse of a day, let's get those hikers pulled on and laced up, and grab hold that staff. We need to take it down the entire side of this mountain and make it past the tree line. We need to see what has been working correct and gather it in and that which has not been working well cut the strings and let it go. This needs to come all together by the end of the day and we need to get it right. So let's get focused and put our minds and our efforts into full gear and go get em. Along the way we will come on those in great need. We need to be open to stopping, listing and helping in anyway we can, including seeing them to the next care center. Now let's get our behinds to the starting line and let's give it all we've got with quantity and quality and make this one hay bailing day. And as we go let's go make us a most Happy, Happy the day long and share it with everyone we come in contact with.

Harvest Moon & Oven Roasted Vegetables / 9-11-19

      Well another full moon is about to come on the scene between Friday the 13th and Saturday the 14th of September and yes this month is the harvest moon and happening on Friday the 13th. They also call it the spooky moon, other than if it occurred on a Friday the 13th in October. But this is September and we are still looking forward to fall to start. But full moons and the Cape are some of the most wonder things to experience. Either on the sound side or the bay side. If it is a clear evening the reflection off the water can be eerily spooky yet so beautiful. Stay there long enough and you will start to believe in those ghosts of ship wrecks long ago, hovering just above the water as the cool of the evening sets in over the warmer waters and the mist rises with the moon. It has been said that even the cries of the those who have gone down below the waters line can be heard the closer to the pinnacle the moon gets. Then at it's peak the howls and cries seem to just echo off invisible rock cliffs while visions of abandoned pirate ships can be seek sinking and slinking into the sea. Yup I love siting on the beach and just taking it all in, wondering has gone before me out across that pond so dark, so deep so unknown. When was the last time you have spend an evening on the beach with a full moon? Maybe you should consider and see just what might happen and what you may experience. If you do, I just hope they don't get you intoxicated with their hypnotic spells and carry you off to to their domain. Well, I guess that is about if for this week, have a great and wonderful, especially if you can do it right here on old Cape Cod.    
       This week I am starting to run low on resources as my house is still in great disarray. So small business report may be thin the next couple weeks but I will do my best. So this week I was going to talk about apple picking but there are no actual real apple orchards here on the Cape to do that, you need to go off Cape to be able to pick your own apples, so forget that thought. There are plenty of farm stands and farmers markets that you can get fresh fruit at. Google Cape Cod Farm stands and farmers markets for a full listing or Edible Cape Cod @ and also Cape Cod Online @ So back to the drawing board, but this is making me hungry. So restaurants are a great thing and this time of year, many are still open even if only on the weekends till Columbus Day such as Arnolds in Eastham, while others are open till thanksgiving like Cooks in Hyannis. And now during the week, those places still open are not crowded, no major wait lines and lots of good food to enjoy both Seafood and just good old grub. So get out there and make some visit to places you were avoiding during the high season. 
      Also coming up this coming weekend September 14th and 15th is the Annual Harwich Cranberry Festival going on at the Community Center Fields on Oak Street. Craft show goes on from 9-4 each day but the music festival goes from 12:30 till 8pm on Saturday. So have some fun and go check it out. 
      Also happening this weekend is the Cape Cod Roots & Blues Festival happening at Nauset Beach from noon - 6pm this Saturday 9-14-19. 
      Cape Cod Canal Day from noon - 6 in Buzzards Bay happening on Saturday 14th of September 
      Then the following weekend on the 21st there is the Annual Cape Cod Beer fest, This is a ticketed event so be sure to get your early. 
      You may also want on Sunday the 22nd Truro Treasures Grape Stomp & Music Fest in North Truro at Truro Vineyards. 
      So get out of the house these next two weekends and go check out what's happening around the Cape. 
        So what is going on, have you adjusted to life as routine life again. Do you miss us already, well I can say I miss you. The days are slower, the crowds have greatly reduced in numbers, the sunlight hours are diminishing and that harvest moon is coming up the 14th of September. I am just hoping we have a clear evening that night so that the moon view is gorgeous. And although the tower will not be open to the public the grounds will be open for the bonfire gatherings that will be starting this weekend and running through Halloween, weather permitting. But the view from the observation area is still great and you can see up and down the coast line and well out into the Atlantic Ocean. Many times we can see cruise ships and shipping freighters lights off on the horizon in the near distance. I have even had over the past years whale sightings, and that can be beautiful and spooky all at the same time. As far as what is going on with the maritime world, well not a lot. With the numbers gone and the cooler weather and shorter days there is less to deal with. Other than the nice little hurricane that we watched pass us by well to the east, then make a bee line for Nova Scotia. I'v had reports that some of there fishing fleets took a pounding as they are not as prepared for a Cat 1 as we are. But as we know it will slow them down no more than if it had been us. We still need to keep those in the Bahamas in our prayers as it will be a long long time before they get back to any kind of normalcy. Well, waters are still warm enough for anyone still looking for a fall dip, but still be start about it and keep an eye on the waters around you for those pesky things called Great Whites. Well folks, it's about that time, I still need to get some cookies made for a group coming in tomorrow and the weekend. The wife is doing her thing and the gauges still need read. So hope you have a great and wonderful, remember we miss you and hope you can come to one of the fall weekend bonfires/campfires gatherings and see what this place we call Old Cape Cod is all about during this fall and autumn season. See you all soon.    
      As we dive into fall I thought what a great time to start getting the oven going and nothing says autumn to me in side dishes then roasted veggies. Harvest time, a bonfire, good stuff going on in the kitchen, cooler evenings, Ok I know some of you reading this are going to say what cooler weather, as the past few days have still been in near or at 90 degrees in the mid-west. But we here, in New England are getting to enjoy those cooler evenings in the upper 40s or lover 50s, but I am sure it is coming soon, So let's get the oven going (or grill) and get the fall harvest of fresh veggies roasting. Now on with the show:

      This week's recipe: Oven Roasted Vegetables

      1      med      zucchini
      1      med      summer squash
      1      med      red bell pepper
      1      med      yellow bell pepper
      1      lb          fresh asparagus
      1      med      red onion
      3      Tbs       extra virgin olive oil
      1      tsp        salt
   1/2      tsp        fresh ground pepper 

      Heat oven to 450 degree. Cut all vegetables into bite size pieces. Place vegetables in a large roasting pan. Toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper to mix and coat. Spread in a single layer in pan. Roast for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are lightly browned and tender but not over done and still lightly crunchy.  

Bourbon Barrel Wednesday / 9-11-19

Bourbon Barrel Wednesday EveryOne
   Are you ready, are you ready for a brand new day, We have so much to be smiling about, so much to be positive about, that even in the deepest of times we have got to keep it looking up to see the sun and know that soon, sometime soon the clouds will part and the blue, blue skies will appear. I get it that life is not fair for some, situations not the most favorable, relationships that won't move on or that is biting you in the butt big time in ways you feared would never happen. But as we continue our climb up this mountain, each day being a challenge, we know that with each step another opportunity is possible, another adventure could come your way. Another chance for things to brighten up. Know that as we reach the top of this mountain half way through the day we will be half way through the week. We will want to put down our things, turn and look back and see just how far we have come, then turn make a mental map of where we need to go. Pick up our things and move off the back side, knowing that the end is another thought closer with each step we take. So let's get that foot gear on and laced up and take hold that staff as we move out for the starting line. A quick word though, we will come on those in a world of hurt, deep in depression, lost without hope. We will stop and listen to them, offer whatever help we can and see them to the next care center. Life is not always fair and sometimes it just gets the most of some, remember to treat others as you would want them to treat you if in the same situation. Now we need to get this day going. Half the week is just about gone and the end is coming quickly, so we need to do what we can to make the most of what we need to get done. Wow, what a day, So let's get it going and go make us a most Happy, Happy, and share it all along the way. It will help us have a better attitude and it will help others to see a more sunny side to the day. So let's get this day hopping and make it as fun as you can, lightening any dark and heavy load. Have a great and wonderful all day long.

Coffee & Cocoa Tuesday / 9-10-19

Coffee and Cocoa Tuesday EveryOne
Howdy, Howdy, Howdy, Isn't great to be able to start a new day with new opportunities and adventures. We are always on a journey, it is just, do we take full advantage of all the new experiences that come with each days journey. So as we get today started, let get that foot gear on and laced up, find where we dropped the staff and take hold of it and let's start heading out to the starting line. So, we all know what didn't work yesterday, so let's relook at things and see what did and expand on it. I know someone grumped at your smile, but remember you were doing that last week, so give that time, many others did like it. So again, take account off what worked and expand on it, and change what didn't. If you can't change it, find a way cope with it. Remember most of these things only come in spurts and are not constant, and we can usually step away and come back to it. So let's start this day with a positive attitude, be thankful for all that we can. Remember there are so many who can't get out of bed, can't dress themselves, can't feed themselves, can't remember who they are or even identify their families. Be thankful for ever single thing you can and even in the darkest of times remember that even a chance at a new day is reason to smile. So as we go along this day be open and ready to help those in situations they find themselves hopelessly in and if nothing else see them to the next care center for appropriate help. Expect and ask for nothing in return, do good and move on and through it all keep looking up. You know what I like to say, let's go make us a most Happy, Happy as no one else is going to do it for you, but a smile can sure go a long way to helping. Be that help to someone else who is struggling, especially in the morning.
