Find Me in Florida Again.

Welcome to Florida during another one of balmy Winter seasons! This is the season where we enjoy balmy Florida sunsets and sunrises, depending on which side of the state you are on. Weather during December, January, Feb., and March is 40s at night, and 60s and 70s during the day. Residents steer clear of crowded Themeparks during the holidays. We have sense. Don't say we didn't warn you. This is not summertime. Ask a resident how we live here. Answers will be various yet the same. Life is different here than "up north" or "out west". Enjoy the gifts of God, we do!Forget about what you should do and just live and try not to be rigid. The sun is shining. Look up and smile. We do.


It is already Spring in Florida, I have been working too hard and dreaming of doing this today. I need a Spring break, not a Lent.

Snorkeling at Blue Springs State Park was a crowded no go yesterday, but we went to DeLeon Springs, west of DayTona Beach.

It may be Lent in my culture and all that Catholic jazz,  but since it is getting hot in Florida now and the weather has JUMPED INTO THE MID 80S,  I NEED A SPRING BREAK TRIP TO A COLD COLD Florida spring.   How cold? 65 deg F. 

I have my favorite springs.  Ahh,  and after I may or may not reveal the tough year we have been having,  you may or may not wonder why I am not THERE ALREADY.

But here are my favorite springs:

1  Ginnie Springs

2.   Blue Springs Volusia County

3.   Deleon Springs Volusia County

4.   Any springs in the Ocala National Forest.  Silver Glen and Alexander Springs are my favorite.

5.   Wekiwa Springs off of Interstate 4 near Casselberry, Florida on the other side of I-4 near the Atlantic side.

6.   Rainbow Springs and Fanning Springs.  This is the closest to Tampa.

…  AND FOLKS,  IF YOU THINK FLORIDA IS JUST THE NE ESCAPE TO THE BEACH,  YOU DON’T KNOW FLORIDA LIKE WE RESIDENTS DO.  

WE WOULD TELL YOU TO GO HOME.


Twenty nine years after the fact: my story to come about how I survived in Florida. What? they are laying people off in the Newspaper I used to work at

Mmmmm,  this next post in the next few days is going to be the one I have always wanted to do.

That stat of limitations is over with on what I am going to say and share.

You all are going to like this one folks.   I am not going to wait until Lent is over with for me to share what is going on. 

Stay tuned.

Meanwhile,  I am going to work out and enjoy my life.
