Fave Fotos: Places That Aren’t There Anymore

In a posting back on June 19th, I featured the well-known local spot Yellow Dog Eats in one of my reviews. I like the place. A lot. Unique Eatery in Gotha is how the header begins, if you’d like to check it out. And yes, YDE… Continue Reading “Fave Fotos: Places That Aren’t There Anymore”

Jeff Willey and Those Smokin’ Torps Are Killin’ It in Central Florida

Jeff and his top-flight band The Smokin’ Torpedoes are well-known to lovers of live music here in Central Florida. Jeff is very good at his craft. By that, I don’t mean only the musical side; he’s a very capable promoter and has shown over… Continue Reading “Jeff Willey and Those Smokin’ Torps Are Killin’ It in Central Florida”

How Much Fun are Zip Lines, Anyway?

Bulldog loves to zip. Only done it three times but I’m going again when I get the chance. I’ve done the one at The Central Florida Zoo. It’s good, but too many rope ladders and assorted obstacles between zips. Most of the zippers are… Continue Reading “How Much Fun are Zip Lines, Anyway?”

Fave Fotos: Florida Hospital Landscaping

I’ll be featuring some of my photos here from time to time. Here’s one that I like from sometime in 2013. I was visiting my mother in the hospital and thought some of the landscaping around the grounds at Florida Hospital would make for… Continue Reading “Fave Fotos: Florida Hospital Landscaping”

Something Tells Me It’s All Happening at the Zoo

Bulldog really loves going to the Zoo. Pretty much any zoo. I’ve had annual passes to two zoos around here. That would be the Central Florida Zoo in Sanford and the Brevard Zoo in Melbourne. I love them both, can’t wait for the opening… Continue Reading “Something Tells Me It’s All Happening at the Zoo”

Former UCF Ace Shelby Turnier Takes a Tough Loss

If you’re from Central Florida and follow UCF sports–softball in particular–you almost certainly have heard of pitcher Shelby Turnier. She was a first team All American in her junior season, 2015, after having the lowest ERA in the nation. Yes, an ERA of 0.74… Continue Reading “Former UCF Ace Shelby Turnier Takes a Tough Loss”

Ruby Tuesday on University Blvd has amazing…

Yes, Ruby Tuesday has amazing brussels sprouts. But that’s just one reason to visit. I stopped in at the location on University Blvd not long ago after watching the Knights play softball. The game went well and so did the post-game dinner. An amazing… Continue Reading “Ruby Tuesday on University Blvd has amazing…”

Hillary Makes History

July 26, 2016 There I was, in my living room, TV tray and all, watching Hillary make history. My bachelor’s feast of hot dogs–all beef, of course–and chips was well-suited for the occasion. My party–the Democratic Party of the United States–had just nominated Hillary… Continue Reading “Hillary Makes History”

Hillary Taps Virginia Senator Tim Kaine!

I got an email from Hillary today. Everybody’s heard the news by now, but we donors and supporters got the scoop before the media… Well, about 30 seconds before, but that counts! Flashes big grin… Sen. Tim Kaine is a very able public servant.… Continue Reading “Hillary Taps Virginia Senator Tim Kaine!”
