Ivey Loves Clams Gluten Free

CLAM UP AND READ! This month’s recipe research, gave us a new favorite and todays Gluten Free trend has really worked out in our favor. So we decided it was time I talk to you about our lovely bi-valve, the clam. If I were on death row, my last request would be to order–in Baked Clams from La Parma II in Huntington LI.

Have you ever...

  • Seen a fresh repair turn gray?
  • Noticed a shiny ring around the repair? I call that a “halo”
  • Not been able to polish a repaired area?
  • Observed deep scratches in the repair that you can’t feel? I describe those as “comet tails”
  • Had a repair spot that is dark with tiny little pin holes in it?
  • Have gelcoat plug up your sand paper?
  • Have the color not match? This happens a lot!
  • Seen gelcoat peeling off the boat and actually be able to scrape off with a putty knife?

On the morning of Wednesday, January 18th, at five am, members of the Hudson Sloop Club were notified that the Riverloft building in the North Bay area of Hudson, NY was burning. The building, which was recently donated to their sister organization, Kite’s Nest, housed all of the Sloop Club’s materials and supplies. Fortunately, the club’s larger boats that live on trailers were outside and subsequently spared. The fire destroyed the entire building and everything in it. The building was completely demolished by the end of the day. The Hudson Sloop Club suffered deep, material losses, but luckily no one was harmed, and no lives were lost in the fire.

“A SPECK IN THE SEA”

Written by

A BOOK REVIEW by John H. Vargo, Publisher

If you live to be as old as I am you will realize that certain people in your lifetime and many before survive all the terrible things that could  possibly happen to a person to live to a ripe old age. Some call it luck, but I think it is far more than that, a combination of skill, will, and tenacity, whatever.

John Aldridge is one of these people. This book is now being made into a movie. What is interesting about that is how the partners in the lobster boat have become partners in the book and the movie.

Truly smart men with very smart advisors.
