Dipping my toes ever so slightly into a restaurant review – featuring newly opened North Beacon Oyster in Rockland. Great bivalves!
A slightly modified repost of remembering a rollicking night of excess just doing my job as a journalist and TV writer, the story of John and Marge Fairservice’s survival on a rock in the ocean, plus a delicious warm-me-up potato dish provided by my daughter-in-law Gillian.
