NI/Friends Blogs: Jim MacDonald, RIP

“Another fried hot dog delicacy,” posts Stebbijo/Stebbijo's Place. “Those darn foodie shows are dangerous. Take your hot dog and wrap it in a slice of thick cut bacon.Secure with a toothpick. Deep fat fry for about 5 minutes.” More here.

Featured Blog: A Bayview icon, Jim MacDonald passed away early this morning. Long time marina owner, he was once the mail boat postman, state legislator and community leader, and for many years owned and managed MacDonald's Resort now managed by his son, Gary. During the 1950's and part of the 60's Jim ran the mail boat for 13 years, until the press of running the marina caused him to give up the job he loved. Jim was opinionated and not everyone agreed with him all of the time, but everyone respected this gentleman of the old school/Herb Huseland, Bay Views. More here.
