ha! very cool, great idea.on
People visiting Cape Cod in the summer are always fascinated to learn about digging clams and quahogs. Oftentimes, they will stop while commercial diggers are working and ask questions. Moms, dads and kids. Everyone wants to know more. But without their having a permit or the equipment, there's little they can do other than watch.
So why not see about taking a few of you out with us for the day?
For a $250 pledge, commercial shellfisherman, master mariner (and HRH's host) Andrew Buckley will take you and up to 3 of your family out shellfishing on the waters of Cape Cod.
For commercial fishermen in Chatham, our commute is a boat ride and our office is the shore. Our hours are determined by the ever-changing time of the tide each day. We can be digging softshell steamer clams when we can find them, or hardshell quahog clams which are in abundance.
This offer includes one non-resident family permit good for the WHOLE YEAR. That means you once you have it and learn the basics, you can head out yourself and bring yourself back some plenty of tasty bivalves every week.
Of course, this offer is subject to weather and tide conditions, availability, our discretion and local rules (see FAQ http://bit.ly/fJEzQ2). You have to get yourself to Chatham, Mass. yourself, too.
So what are you waiting for? This is a great value -- not just another day at the beach. Grab this offer before someone else snaps it up!
We're on our way. We've just passed the halfway point in time and made about 4% of the money. Not bad.
Thanks again to all of you who have contributed, you are the golden swan egg makers.
Me and Eric have been working out the production specifics, schematics, and story boards.
Here's some fun stuff to look with more to come.
Landing in Tunis Tuesday morning, I was immediately engulfed in post-revolution euphoria: "Allah Akabar (God is great),” a man started yelling. “I am finally returning to my home after 20 years."
I was charmed right away by Tunis and Tunisians. The city of Tunis is lovely, the colonial architecture reminds me of Buenos Aires. Unlike in Casablanca, where I live, these old buildings are well-kept, renovated, and clean. And even though sanitation workers are on strike, walking around town, we saw young volunteers cleaning the streets.
At first, aside from the military trucks and tanks stationed across the street from our hotel, I couldn't really sense that the population had recently undergone so much unrest and so many important changes. But quickly, that impression changed: people are still constantly demonstrating. We found ourselves in the middle of crowds of demonstrators protesting anything and everything: the new government, unemployment, taxes, salaries, the lack of tourists, the EU, and so on.
One Tunisian man told me: "Now people are allowed to talk and everyone is getting out what they have been scared to say for more than 20 years.”
Last night, as we were walking to find a restaurant, we saw groups of men shouting and running toward each other. We rushed away because it was clear this was becoming violent. We were told that Ben Ali's supporters and others left out of the interim government are still trying to sow chaos in order to regain control of the country. If that is true, it is working – but only a little bit.
First off, we'd like to say thank you to all our backers: for your support, sharing your love stories, and for helping us design Valentine's Day. Thanks to you, it was perfectly LOVE-ly here at What Happens When. Your stories were the evening's parting gift, along with a night filled with Ring Pops, heart cut-outs and a special four course menu in the form of a cootie catcher. Our inspiration? Your stories, blushing and a photo of Emilie's dad from 1961!
For our blushing-inspired installation, and with a $150 budget, Elle decided to create an impact by spending the money on fabric to make the space more intimate. She achieved this by creating a gradient ceiling made of silk triangles The gradient ranges from hot pink to deep purple and hangs in a diagonal pattern from the ceiling's 500 hooks. The 88 yards of fabric cost $143 and the installation took 12 hours with both Elle and Emilie cutting strips away into the night and into the wee hours of the morning fueled by garlic knots and coffee.

What Happens When
We did it!
The support that I've received for this project leaves me (almost) speechless. I'm completely moved and I offer my sincerest gratitude to each and every one of you for your support.
I have found this whole process so inspiring. I'm very much accustomed to relying on editors to support the type of work that I do, and it's a small team that's usually involved in production. That's completely changed–now we're a team of at least 130 people!
Every single person that has support Bedrooms of The Fallen through Kickstarter has provided a way to finish this project. Every dollar counts here. Film, Gas, flights, all of it. When you all see this work in shows, in the book, online, you can know that you made it possible. Thank you.
You are all incredible, and I promise to make you all proud in completing this project to memorialize fallen soldiers and Marines.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!
what neat looking stuff!on
