Wouldn't you know the little guy came down with something yesterday. We were going to have friends over, but no one wants to come when there's a sick kid. I don't blame them.

So, it's me and a 24-pack of Miller Lite, I guess.

I feel for you, but I guess those are the sacrifices we make to be good parents, huh? I'm sure I'll make plenty of sacrifices in the years to come. I'm sure you'll still enjoy the game. ;)

Ok this is what's wrong with America.. You think Donovan would not play if his kid were sick? He!! no.. Yes you say he is getting paid millions and you are pretty much getting paid nothing but if we let one sick kid determine our fate then the whole system breaks down.. It is just wrong.. Get some antibotics in that kid, put on one of those dust masks, tape up the wounds and get back in there! Give the kid some gas and matches and he will be all set for 3-4 hours while you watch the game and he starts a 3 alarm fire in the neighbor's back yard.. Everyone wins, well except the neighbor and the fire dept. that has to work during the SB but sometimes, like you said, "sacrifices" have to be made.. It is the SUPER bowl - time to take your game to the next level.. lol..

Seriously though that sucks.. Hopefully its at least a good game so you and your Miller Lite get some quality entertainment time.. You could fly up to the D and come to my party if you wanted - still have 3 hours..

We had to sacrifice this year...the sun was shining and was 70 easy yesterday. We had to lug all that stuff outside so we could cook sausages with peppers and onions and mushrooms on the patio grill! The neighbors on both sides came over and brought their kids and we had a mini block party. When I took my ride yesterday, I went through St Marks and bought several lbs of shrimp so we sat outside, watched the game and peeled boiled shrimp. I think the real sacrifice was having to wash them down with the Coronas. Hey...just another Super Bowl Party in Paradise...I told y'all to come down! :lol:

Hilarous Bee... You just never quit.. So what the average paying job down there like $7 per hour? Also how is the grilling season during hurricane season? Also how do you fight off a gator and a cottonmouth for your sausages? Also how are those major bug infestations you guys have every year? Sounds great to me. Also how is that 97 degree heat with the sun beating down so hard in the Summer that you actually sweat in the shower? You can live in your so called "paradise" and I will stick with the great 4 seasons of the mighty D.. Believe dat...

Hey I have been to Flordidia in the Summer and experienced this first hand - why take a fuggin shower because you are going to need one before you even get out of the shower and forget riding or anything even close to effort related - you can't do 12 oz. curls, i.e. drink beer, because it is too much of a workout in the heat.. It is a joke in the Summer.. No place for a Yankee.. No thanks I will stick here in the Enchanted Mitten and enjoy the largest deer in the nation along with 4 great seasons and plenty to do in each of them.. Riding season maybe short but we enjoy it that much more up here.. There are benefits to everywhere you live.. If you want the best place to live for riding go to San Deigo - 72 year around and like 2 days of rain..

OK...one at a time...
Depending on your skill or trade, union scale is where most jobs are at...we have this funny little law that any business or organization doing business with the federal, state or municipal gov't in any capacity has to follow wage guidelines. Yes if you are a housekeeper, or ditch digger or some other unskilled labor, I believe the wages here start in the 7-8 range. If you have skills, for example nurses, the papers are full of entry level positions starting around 15.00/hour and most have 8 to 10K signing bonuses. Most of the LPN and RN's I knew in the nursing homes where I was putting in their program were making 40 to 60K per year. Teachers, entry level, start in high twenties. Masters level with 10 years in...50K
Our Raining season, from june 1 to november 1, is typical tropical rain. Most days it will rain between 2 and 4 pm for 15 to 30 minutes, cool everything down and 30 minutes later you cannot tell it has rained. Except for the past season with 4, hurricanes are fairly rare.

Gators and cottonmouths avoid people whenever possible, unless you go out looking for them you will hardly see them, You have water mocs and copperheads, when was the last time you saw one?

We treat water and stormwater run offs in the municipalities, they also aggressively spray and enforce junk laws, and mowing requirements. If you don't provide habitat, they won't breed. Ants are the only real nuisance and if you keep things clean, you can stay up on them

I have lived, wintered, owned property in Florida for 20+ years, I have never seen 100 degrees in all those years...It is hotter in Southern Illinois for the 4th of July than it is here. besides, it rains almost every afternoon in the summer and cools things down. Start watching the weather channel and read the almanacs...you will discover this area, north Florida and the panhandle, is one of the nicest areas in the world!

I never said 100 degrees.. It is closer to the equator and a different kind of heat than up here in Michigan or Illinois.. Let's just call it anti-yankee heat and leave it simple.. I don't need the weather channel or the almanacs - I have been going to Florida for over 15 years and I know the weather, conditions from North to South.. I prefer the West Coast over the East Coast by far if you want to get into temperate climates, etc. But just my preference.. It is quite apparent that you love where you live and that is great.. I personally love to live in Michigan and the seasons - other people, won't name any names *cough* gasman *cough* like to complain about the white stuff, and I am not talking about a Miami weekend "ski" trip.. Nothing better than a fresh snow on a November or December morning and about 10-15 degrees out in the woods and taking down a nice big Michigan buck.. I wouldn't want to be any other place in the world..

Actually I think it is great when you break out your shrimp on the barbie stories and your typical oh yeah I rode today.. lol.. You are the master of rubbing it in.. Next time I am in Florida I will look you up.. Where are you again? North part right? I should be going Tampa bound pretty soon - in the next year..
