Sandra always had a passion for marine biology, and, after getting her Masters degree, taught marine biology in the Bahamas for year and a half. She now incorporates her love for the ocean into her jewelry with sea glass, some of it even dating back to the 18 or 1900′s! All of her work is made with .925 sterling silver, and may even be custom ordered as long as long as she has the color sea glass in stock. She makes necklaces, bracelets, earrings, wine charms, and even book marks, which you can purchase at one of her shows.

David Littlefield, a.k.a. The Sausage Guy, joined the crew of South Shore Live this week. David has recently doubled the size of his south Boston location at 118 Dorchester Street. The Sausage Guy does private events such as corporate parties, barbecues, and even post-reception wedding parties, which is always fun for everyone! The Sausage Guy is great for both small events, such as a three-year-old’s birthday party he has done in the past, or larger events like the pharmaceutical company who hired him to cater to at least 900 people. David Littlefield is busy making partnerships in order to make it available more locally throughout the South Shore, with the closest so far being Boomer’s in Brockton. He also shared an interesting story of how his good friend made the logo for his company. Ed Brown from The Snug also joined us to talk about his restaurant in downtown Higham at 116 North Street. The Snug provides authentic Mexican food without the white table cloth. The goal is for you to come, have fun, and even bring the kids while providing great hospitality to the customers.

South Shore Live welcomed Walter John of L.Knife & Sons to the show this week for winter beer tasting. Walter John brought four different beers, which are available in bottles at finer retailers around the South Shore. Starting with goose island, a brown ale with an alcohol of 7.3, it has a sweeter taste. This Christmas ale pairs well with ham,turkey, and lamb. Next was cisco winter shredder; a spiced ale with 8.5% alcohol, it surely won’t disappoint. The Newport storm winter is a black porter with a coffee in flavor with chocolatey notes. At 5.9%, we learned that a porter is made with crystal malt, which is clear, 10% of the malt in the drink is roasted until it is black, which is where the roasted, coffee flavor comes from. Finally, ending with the most interesting flavor, Walter John brought Southern Tear 2Xmas. Although this is not a sessional beer, the 8% alcohol is well hidden behind figs, orange peels, cinnamon, clove, and ginger roots. All of these well balanced beers are perfect for upcoming holiday parties or even watching the game.
It seems like Christmas has gone from a warm, cozy holiday to a holiday where all people are concerned about is getting the newest iPhone or iPad. Guys making pies is an organization by a group of about 15 middle schoolers from Hingham who have went out of there way to make children less fortunate have a better holiday. This group of boys donates thousands of dollars to local charity. The idea of making pies for a cause was started by Dylan Melanson. With the money the boys make, they spend on what children in homeless shelters wish for. You can like Guys Making Pies on Facebook and you can also contribute by donating toys, donating money, or sponsoring a child. Guys making pies should be an inspiration to all of us. So instead of complaining about what you didn’t get for Christmas this year, be grateful for what you did get and just appreciate being surrounded by people who love you. Email Guys Making Pies at Guysmakingpies.firstname.lastname@example.org and you can also view their website; Sites.google.com/site/guysmakingpies .
