Kiowa Thursday EveryOne
Hi ho, hi ho oh what a day it is going to be. We have conquered the beginning of the week, we have surpassed the halfway mark and we have are managed to keep our heads above water and we are now sitting on that wonderful workout, workhorse day of the week we call Thursday. There is no time for self pity-parties, for feeling lazy, for wanting to take a break from it all or checking out. There are no rocking chairs on the porch and there are no swings hanging from the trees that surround us. We need to search for all those wild projects that seem to have a mind of their own and gather them in. We need to evaluate what is going right and work it for all it’s worth and that which is not cut it loose and keep our loses to a minimum. We need to watch our every step and make them count so that by the end of the day we will have come off this mountain, cleared the tree line and have it all heading in the right direction for an optimal finish. So let’s get those hikers pulled on and take hold that staff and let’s get moving toward that starting line. Just a reminder that we need to be open the helping those who are in dire way along our path. Be ready to stop, listen and help in whatever way we can then see them to the next care station then move on. Now let’s get it going and hit that starting like with some enthusiasm and excitement and go make us a most Happy, Happy all day long, and do whatever it takes to share to all you come in contact with along your journey today.

75 Days Ago & Cranberry Chutney / 11-15-18

It’s amazing to me to think that just 75 days ago we were still funning in the sun, bouncing on the beaches, swimming in the sea, and naturing with nature. The dunes were alive with with wild critters both on 4 legs and even some on 2. The sun would rise a little more like 112 degrees vs today it is closer to 145 degrees SE as I look from my home office window across the street. and the angle is far less and the warmth of that beating down raise is only a haunting memory to my beaten joints and aching muscles. The things we did this past summer are mere memories in another scrapbook in the back of the mind filed away for those golden years. Fishing with the kids will become fishing with the grandkids, sunfish sailing with your Dad on the Sound will become something you never want to let go of. Eating home cooked seafood dinners with your Mother in the cottage one days you can only dream of coming in from the beach and smelling that good food. Mornings with a cup of coffee either on the cottage porch or even down at the waters edge sitting on the jetting as the sun climbs into the sky. Memories. What do we remember from yesterday, 75 days ago, 7 years ago, 25 or even 50 years ago. I have now been coming to, or part of the Cape now for over 5 decades or 1/2 a century. WOW, I’m not sure I have ever looked at my life as being over a 1/2 century old now, rather an odd feeling especially looking back over the years of Cape Cod experience. I hear the wind picking up outside my house, knowing they are not the warming breezes coming from the south up and across the warm Gulf Stream waters. The Gulls with their strategic aim nailing the freshly washed car in a grocery store parking lot not even close to a light post, now most have gone south. Now we wait we for the first sighting of the Snowy Owls returning from their summer homes in Canada. We remember the warm of 75 days ago and the memories we’ve made. What about looking forward 75 days and seeing what memories one can begin to make even as there are forecasts of snow in some parts of the state. What can you do around the Cape that will help build that warm fuzzy memory the overcomes the howling winds and bitter cold. The Cape in winter? Yup? Everything from shell fishing (when temps are above freezing). Take a drive up to P’town and see the fishing boats coming and going with the ice caked on them yet the crew still functioning. Take them around to the different harbors to view what they really are like without any vessels in them, or even go coffee shop hopping, there are some great ones around the Cape. The point is, just because there is a change in seasons, a change in temperatures, a change in the sun’s angle, a change in the direction the wind is blowing does not mean that memories and memory making has to go away as well. Do whatever it takes to keep the memory making going all year round, regardless of circumstances and time of year. Well until we meet again, have a great and wonderful in all you do and especially if you can do it right here on old Cape Cod.
This past weekend I went to the Cape Cod Tech Holiday Craft Fair, had a wonderful time with many local crafters and vendors. This coming weekend Nov 19 & 20 at the Upper Cape Cod Regional Tech in Bourn and following that will be the New Bedford Voc Craft Fair ( I mention this as many of our local crafter will be there). So get out and support our local artisans and get your Christmas and Holiday shopping done early.
Restaurant report, It’s been a while since I have mentioned Jasons Tavern in Patriot Square. Folks I can not speak enough good words about this place. They are family friendly, great food, open year round and still offer a fun early bird special. This is one of those go to places that when you want an outstanding home cooked style meal this is where you wan to go and not feel like you’ve been robbed to eat, and walk out with a well satisfied belly, this is the place. If it’s been a while, isn’t about time you check them out, and to think you don’t have to fight the tourist crowds to get in.
One last place to mention, that being the Chatham Candy Manor, located on Main St in Chatham. If you are a chocolate holiday giver, you enjoy having fudge out for your guests, you want to do something special for someone with sweets I can not wave the flag high enough, toot the horn loud enough, or bang on the drum long enough about how good they are. No I do not hold any stake in them or have any connection to them. I just love their stuff, and this is saying a lot as I am not a big chocolate eater, ok except when it comes to the Manor’s Truffles, and personally I could just go into a comma on those things. But enjoy all they have to offer and share it as well this holidays season.
Welcome to you all and I hope you are stating warm as we have gone directly to winter. The wind has been whipping around the light tower like the gales of Novembers are known to do as Nor’easter can stir up almost out of nowhere. The beacon is is full working order and last week I was able to get a good cleaning done in the lamp room and the windows are spotless now that our residential gulls for the most part have headed south for the winter. I also took the time to do a go over on the old fog horn, a couple of our local woodland creatures had taken up residence through the summer. So it needed a good cleaning and the places they made entrance closed up. Weather is this old guys worst enemy as the moisture and salt will corrode the internal workings the quickest. If anyone has been around, you know by now that the grounds are set up to celebrate the harvest season. The maze is all set up and we have had a good turn out so far of young and old coming to enjoy the grounds. We also have some displays that honor both our Native Americans and New World settlers as well as displays of our shipping heritage and whaling and fishing community. We have so much to be thankful for and we want to be sure we give a well rounded picture of how this area was established and what helped define it. So this will be up through Thanksgiving weekend then down it comes and up goes the next season. I just hope the weather will cooperate enough to allow folks to come and enjoy themselves and maybe take the time to sit around the bond fire and roast some marshmallows and drink some hot chocolate. Well, I better get and do my rounds and run a check on the weather instruments and take my readings. Yes I still do some things the old fashion way, lest we forget what this is all about, preserving history. Well I hope you have a great and wonderful, especially if you can do it right here on old Cape Cod.
It’s almost Thanksgiving and we have to have a good cranberry dish to go with the meal, ok so a good cranberry dish is good any time of the year not just for Thanksgiving. I found several that were good ones but I wanted to find one that did not go super wild on the ingredients, but then again must chutneys do so I am going for something that I thing really all can do and enjoy. Key here is if you like a cranberries, you will like this, if not, well, what can I say. This is a make ahead, you don’t want to be doing this at the last minute, if you want that, look for a good cranberry relish, those are much simpler. But give this a try and I think you will be pleasantly pleased. Now on with the recipe.

Recipe of the Week: Cranberry Chutney

1/2 cup apricot preserves
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp ground ginger
1 stick cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
` 1 1/2 cup water
1 med lemon, seeded & chopped
2 med green apple, pared, cored & diced
3 cup fresh cranberries
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

In non aluminum pot/pan, combine preserves, vinegar, sugar and spices (tie the spiced up in a cheesecloth bag or use a loose tea mesh ball). Add water and bring mixture to slow boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Add chopped lemon and apples; simmer for about 10 minutes. Add cranberries and raisins and simmer, uncovered, for about 30 minutes, or until thick, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Pack into jars or other containers. Keeps indefinitely in refrigerator, ( if it last that long).

Don’t forget to come join us weekend mornings for some Morning Thunks & Thoughts, a few laughs and just some thoughts to get our day going.

Caddo Wednesday / 11-14-18

Caddo Wednesday EveryOne
Wonderful Wednesday morning to you and welcome to hump-day, halfway day, midway day, up and over day, peak day or whatever you want to call it day. We are in store for a wild and crazy and outstanding day, and we are going to take advantage of every opportunity that lies before us. The trail going up may be difficult, trying, unsteady, rocky, and dangerous at times. But getting to the top is like the cherry on top of the sundae. When you get there, take a moment and plant your flag, then stand tall, take a look back and see just how far we have come, then turn and mentally map out in what direction you need to go, then pick up your stuff and move on. The top is only the half way mark for the day, We still need to travers the trail down the back side. But as we go we know we are closer to the finish line than we are to the starting line. So let’s get those hikers pulled on and take hold that staff and lets get this day rocking. As we go along there will be those who need our help, be prepared to stop, listen and help in any way we can and see them to the next care station. Now, let’s get that tune humming, that drum beating and strike up the kazoo band and get buzzing on out of here and as we go let’s make us a most Happy, Happy all day and share it wherever we go.

Byrd Tuesday / 11-13-18

Byrd Tuesday EveryOne
Wow, what a start what a start, it’s gonna be one of them weeks, I’m telling you. I hope you were able to hang on the entire ride yesterday cause the way it ended was totally unexpected, but we made it through and we are living to sing another day, although that cardinal outside the window at the crack of dawn didn’t help. But we can still look and see sky and not dirt. We can choose what we want for breakfast and what we want to wear today. We have the choice to attack this day in so many ways, but the one that will benefit us the most is with a positive attitude and a heart full of gratitude. As we go through this day try to look for ways to give, help others, whether those in the extreme hurting situation or just the bloke next to us, whoever that might be. So let’s get those hikers pulled on and grab hold that staff. We are passing the half way mark to the top today and we need to be on the outlook for any opportunity we can grab hold of to help us succeed. So let’s get this day rolling, find a song to sing, find a tune to whistle (although do that quietly as it can really irritate some folk), put a skip in your step or a hip in your hop. But find what you must and let’s get this day rolling and let go make us a most Happy, Happy all day long. Oh and those hurting you know what you need to do, just do it and and move on.

Morrill Monday / 11-12-18

Morrill Monday EveryOne
Happy Morning to you, what a wonderful day to be alive and well. For many of us we should be thankful we are not in a dessert with over 100 degree temperatures and for some of us we need to grab at any straw we can to see the sun shinning this morning, even little things like the extreme opposite of the situations we are in. We need to start this day with an attitude of gratitude and find encouragement in any corner we can in this round room. So are you ready? Regardless of how the weekend went, this is a new day, a new week with new opportunities new adventures and new journeys. Let’s put behind us the bad, the ugly and the good and set our eyes on what lies before us. We need to do what we can and what we have to to get this day and this week moving in the right direction. We are starting at the bottom and the only direction is up. So let’s get those hikers pulled on and find that staff to hang onto and head to the starting line. Along the way we will come on those in a hurting way, we will take the time to stop, listen and help in any way we can and see them to the next care station. Now let’s get our heads in the game and spirits on take off and let’s go make us a most Happy, Happy and share it wherever we can.

Spinach Friday / 11-9-18

Spinach Friday EveryOne
Wake up, Wake up, it’s time to wake up and get going! We have finally arrived on Friday and it feels good to be alive and well. Ok minus the sniffles and snuffles this time of year can bring. But the journey we started out at the beginning of the week, all the way back on Monday, that trek that seemed so encumbering, so daunting has finally come to its final day. So get your body get your brain up out of whatever horizontal position it is in and get to the upright and motion forward position that is needed to move onward through today. (Now about that theme for the week, with the changing seasons I have scoped our Winter Vegetable, these were listed as some of the top 10 for the colder season. Somewhere along the line I might find the other 5 to give.) Now back to the task at hand, getting this day going and getting through to the end in flying colors. First thing now that you are up, is put those hikers away and pull out the sprinters and exchange the staff for a visor. The run is through hot, dry, sun beaten land and will take it’s toll, but we will need to keep our minds focused on all we do and say. We need to finish this week strong both in quantity as well as quality. and be sure we leave nothing to question on the table. Now along the way we will come on those that are in a hurting way. We will continue to take the time to stop, listen and help in any way we can, then see them to the next help station. Then pick up your goods and move on, as we do this not for any glory of our own but to see our fellow human brothers and sister get the help that is needed to move on in life. Now let’s get this day going and as we do let’s make us a most Happy, Happy all day and all weekend long, and then share it to everyone we come in contact with.

Chimney Warnings & Cranberry-Bourbon Cocktails / 11-5-18

This round I am going to talk a little about fireplaces and wood burning stoves. This past year I got what I thought was good wood. Come to find out I was not, it was over saturated and old and when burning it put of so much creosote that it has rendered my stove non usable right now due to the flue being so clogged with this stuff that it created a fire in my liner, I am fortunate that it did not cause more damage than it did. No matter how much wood I pumped into it, it gave off very little heat. Thus I not only lost money on the wood but also on the heating bill as my heater worked overtime to make up the lack of heat the wood was not giving out. On top of it, we found out that my chimney (put in when the house was built in 1971, oh ya and the town considers this historic area? Say what? Don’t bet me started on this one) was only about 6 inches above the roof line. So to get this whole project fixed, I had a mason come in and while securing the loose mortar we added over 2 feet to the hight of my chimney so it is almost 3 feet above the roof line. (todays standers) Next I am having to have the liner pulled (mind you only 3 years old) and a new liner put in with a new cap. And this year, I am going to use a wood vendor that my chimney specialist recommends and carries a good reputation, not just a good price, and hopefully will get back to lower winter utilities and a warmer more enjoyable house to be in. The moral of this story, be sure your chimney height is up to standards to help get a good draw and keep the smoke out of your house. Second, watch who you get your wood from, and if you suspect problems, don’t wait till you have flames coming out of your chimney to have it checked out as it may be too late and you have bigger problems. Stay warm, and enjoy the winter season, especially if you can do it right here on old Cape Cod.
Business report: First up is an upcoming event at Kappy’s Fine Wines & Spirits located at 333 Iyannough Rd or online at Hyannis.Kappy’s.com. Has a major upcoming event: Grand Whiskey Tasting at Kappy’s in Hyannis November 24 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm. If you are a whiskey drinker, or have been interested in getting to know more about whiskeys this is the even for you. I will say right up front, Please be sure to bring a designated driver with you if you plan to partake, it just makes common sense. This is the Saturday after Thanksgiving so mark your calendars and get ready for a great time.
Next up, is Truro Vineyards has some hours of open operations change. They have posted: Truro Vineyards &
South Hollow Spirits, Winter Hours (beginning November 4th) Thursday – Saturday 11 – 5, Sundays 12 – 5. So for your holiday needs take a trip up the arm and go visit our friends at Truro Vineyards for your wine, rum and gin needs and while there take care of some of your Hanukkah, Christmas & Kwanza needs. Find them on the web at trurovineyardsofcapecod.com or located in North Truro just past Atlantic Spice Company on 6A or 11 Shore Rd.
And last but not least at all, Cape Cod Beer located at 1336 Phinneys Lane or online at http://www.capecodbeer.com. As of this past Monday 11-5 they are now pouring one of my all time favorite beers Cranberry Harvest. It is a beer that embraces a tart, cranberry zing balanced with malty sweetness, just in time for the Thanksgiving season. There is so much going on at the brewery that there is not enough room for all. Just go to their events page and check it all out and sign up for their news letter so you are not missing out on anything.
Well, all these business are open year round, so check them out and know that they also are good supporters of our local communities. They are not just passive businesses but well involved with local farms, crafters, and artisans, looking to help promote those who work and live right here on Cape Cod. Thank you for your support as well. Have a great week.
Another roller coaster week with weather here on the cliffs of the Outer Cape. These rains and winds really do a number on our shoreline. Erosion is our number one issue for the actual cliffs and shore line, while shifting sand bars and channel openings are the concerns of our fishing industry and recreational boater (although we do not have that many this time of year). The other thing that these winds and rains do is wreak havoc on the shell fishing as the shifting sands tend to uncover and pull our delicious bi-valves out to sea, or worse burry them to deep to retrieve. I have had the beacon light set up with back up generators just for safety precautions. Thank heavens I did not need to use them at all. I think if it had been in the old days we would have gone through an extra tank of oil keeping that girl lit and burning. The fog horn has only been used a couple of times and I did that more for testing than necessity, need to be sure that old boy is in working order so when it is a necessity he is ready to go. Well, I appreciate the help of the volunteers that we had the beginning of this week to help make the change over to the Harvest & Thanksgiving season. We need to be reflecting all the bounties that we have been granted and remember our Indigenous People and tribes that helped the settlers make it those first years. We will be having harvest decorations and stations of Thanksgiving set up from now through Thanksgiving weekend. Then we will do the change around to the next Holiday season. The light house and beacon tower are now closed till somewhere between April 15th and May 1st depending on weather and things going on. However please remember that we will do special appointment groups and we are scheduling school kids visits throughout the school season. If you have to be out in some of these changing weather times, please be sure to have your radios turned to the local coast guard channels and to NOAA weather reports and be sure to pinpoint our beacon as a reference point for a safe return to Harbor. Now I think I have covered just about all I need to for now, Hope you stop by to see the new decorations and have a great and wonderful, especially if you can do it right here on old Cape Cod.
This time of year I love using cranberries in just about anything. Some people love love pumpkin, I love cranberries. So looking for simple cocktails using cranberry juice and ones that are more fitting to the cooler weather that my summer cranberry cocktails, (not cocktail juice, please use the real things). But what to pick? You have smashes, fizzes, twists and well just about any combination you can things of. But I have found a couple things that I have tried and they really do work. So I don’t want to take credit for these as I am sure I came on them while thumbing through recipes. But give them a try, they are so simple that just about anyone can do these. Please remember to be a good host and don’t let friends drink and drive and be a responsible consumer. A life is not worth another drink. Now on with the show.

Recipe #1 – Cranberry-Apple

1 part Apple Bourbon
1 part Cranberry Juice
splash club soda (optional)

Pour or build ingredients over ice and garnish with a few fresh cranberries and a wedge of lime

Recipe #2 – Maple-Cranberry

1 part Maple Bourbon
1 part Cranberry Juice
1/2 part Orange Liquor

Pour or build ingredients over ice and garnish with a slice of orange

Recipe #3- Vanilla-Berry

1 part Vanilla Bourbon
1 part Cranberry Juice
splash club soda (optional)

Pour or build ingredients over ice and garnish with a few fresh cranberries

Parsnip Thursday / 11-8-18

Parsnip Thursday EveryOne
Welcome back my friends to a show that never ends (thank you Emerson, Lake & Palmer). They may have been talking about another show, but the statement is true for us, This work show, this daily grind of getting up and doing. Some mornings are harder than others, and you just want to stay in bed, pull the sheets and blankets up over the head and wish the world would pass you bye. But you can’t, and the world although does keep going, it does not slow down or wait for you to catch up with it. What you miss is missed, and all opportunities with it. So on these mornings that you just want to find a corner to go hide in, or go back to bed and forget all that needs done, you need to dig deep, sometimes beyond the toes and find anything and everything to get it going. If not for you, for those around you and all that you come in contact with on a daily basis. I know this morning is not for everyone, but you might know someone that it does, and you need to be reminded of this. As we pull on our hikers this morning and grab hold our staff and head out the door, remember that person that might need that hand may be your cube mate, your neighbor, your sibling, a friend, someone you never expected. Reach out and help, if needed see they get to that help station so they can learn to function again. So for us, let’s get our stuff together, get to the starting line, and shine like the sun is within us. Make it a pleasure to be around and let that attitude of gratitude be who you are in everything you do and say, and let’s go out and make us a most Happy, Happy all day long.

Leeks Wednesday / 11-7-18

Leeks Wednesday EveryOne
Well, can you believe it? We have finally made it to Wednesday that wonderful day that we come to realize it is shorter to the finish than back to the beginning? We call it hump day, half-way day, over the top day, and a host of other things. The matter of fact is that when we get to the top of this hill mid way though this day, we need to take ownership, plant our flags and take account for what we have accomplished so far this week. Take a look back and see just how far we have come, then turn and map our where we need to go. Then pick up our stuff and move off down the back side, as our day is only half over. So for starters get this hikers on as we will need every bit is support and grip we can get, and take hold that staff as it will help support us on those rocky paths. Along the way we will come on those in great need, we will stop and listen and lend a hand in any way we can.Then see them to the next help station. Back on the path we need to be looking for any and every way we can work together with our coworkers, friends and neighbors to get the jobs done that need accomplished. Whether in the office, in town, or around our homes we need to see that tasks are accomplished, differences are put aside, and unity is name of the game. We have so much going on, so much that we need each others help on, so much sunshine to see through cloudy skies, but we can only do it if we work together. So let’s get our heads on straight, check those attitudes of gratitudes and be ready to work hard, not just for yourself but for those and with those around you. But let’s get this all started by going and making us a most Happy, Happy all day long cause if it starts with us we can help see it spread wherever we go.

Kale Tuesday / 11-6-18

Kale Tuesday EveryOne
Happy, Happy, Happy, it’s a Happy, Happy Tuesday morning to you. So how do you do this fine feathered morning? Are you singing with the birds? Are you scamping like the squirrels? Are you bouncing like the bunnies or trotting like the turkeys? Well in my book if you are you are are weird, LOL, more power to those of you who wake up highly motivated and ready to go. I think there are issues with people like that, LOL, You’re the kind that makes the rest of us want to find our way back to bed and pull the covers over our heads. But life is what life is and for most of us, we have to be up and have to be ready to go. So those of you who just love the morning time, remember there are those of us who don’t, while those of us who don’t need to remember, this world is not just made up of our kind, so give them some space, cause if they don’t get it going we are going to be so far behind once we are up and going it will not be funny. We need to find a happy medium to learn to work together. Hey some of you are laughing at this, you don’t get how real this issue is, The world is made up of all kinds of people, with different styles and different outlooks. We need to find a balance for all of us so that we can coexists throughout the day. And for both of us an attitude of gratitude will go a long way, working together to accomplish what needs to get done. So let’s get on those hikers and grab hold that staff and let’s start heading for the starting line. Along the way we will encounter those in need so be prepared to stop, listen, and lend a hand in any way we can and see them to the next help station. Now we need to get this day going, as it is not getting any earlier and the world does not wait on anyone to catch up with it. So let’s get it going and while we do let’s be sure we go make us a most Happy, Happy all day long.
