Good morning everyone, welcome back from what I hope was a tremendous weekend. Ours was very different for a change. Being creatures of habit, we generally do our running around on Saturday, meaning groceries, post office, banking, etc. Then on Sunday, we either find a park to hike through, or a trail or a fishing pier, or our standard bike ride to the beach.

Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend. No matter where you live, I hope it was a great one for you and the weather didn't beat you up. As always I'll bore you to tears with ours. 

First off the weather was....well the weather was why Sarasota is growing like a weed. Both Saturday and Sunday were story book. 78 degrees, not a cloud in the deep blue sky. Of course another reason for our outrageous growth is our beaches. Trip Advisor came out Thursday and listed Siesta Key beach as the single best beach in America.  A few years back when "Dr. Beach" did that, we saw a massive spike in  tourism that year. I figure the trip advisor listing will bring even more folks.   To be brutally honest... we've over grown ourselves. The traffic is horrendous and go ahead and try and get a seat at your favorite  restaurant on a Friday or Saturday evening.  Good luck wit dat.  Oh and that "number one beach?" You'd best get there by 8 am on a weekend if you want to see it, or...there'll be no where to park.

Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend. Boy they go by like a flash, don't they?  Before I even get in gear, half the day is gone somehow. On Saturday, I spent some quality time on the range, poking holes in paper targets. Sunday the plan was ( like all sunday's) to do our bike ride to the beach. Well, Mr. Murphy had something to say about that. I wheeled the wife's bike out of the shed and the tire was flat. Hmmm. Okay, that's strange it was fine when I put it away last Sunday. So I get the pump and as luck would have it, the stupid Presta valve had somehow imploded. The tube didn't have a hole in it, the valve blew up.

Good morning all, welcome to the new week. 

Our weekend didn't go as we'd hoped. After a tremendous Friday evening where the wife and I attended the opening of a hit play from England, Saturday was simply oppressively hot. You know it's hot when the candles in your garage are liquid.  But Sunday was even worse. The leading storms of the Tropical Depression were coming across our coast, bringing torrential rain and lightening on and off all day. Needless to say, our Sunday bike and beach adventure was not to be.

Welcome back from your Holiday weekend folks. I trust it was a good one for you all.  Down here in "Sunny Florida" our weekend was actually pretty routine. We did our usual "house stuff" on Saturday, and then Sunday we did our bike and beach routine. But there was a bit of a twist.  In all the years I've lived down here, and the literally hundreds of times I've been to the beach, I have never seen the water as clear as it was Sunday. It reminded me of Aruba or St.Kitts. I was standing in water up to my chin and yet I could see individual grains of sand on the bottom. It was gin clear.   I can only guess that a body of deep gulf water broke off of its normal current pattern and piled up on the shore, as it was several degrees cooler than the water was last week.

Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend. As always I hope it was a really good one for you all. Down here in "Sunny" Florida, Saturday wasn't so sunny. We had a series of horrific "boomers" roll through, and some of them packed quite a punch. But Sunday dawned clear and the wife and I got in our bike ride and our beach stroll.
