off topic and humor: How Your Perspective On Life Can Change - 02/14/13 07:15 AM
Yesterday it was an all-time high temperature of 88 degrees here on the Space Coast. It truly gave me the feeling of a warm, sunny summer day on the beach (which of course I took full advantage of). Here is a picture of the beach today:
It is overcast with some cool looking funky clouds. Everybody who has come into Starbucks (I am sitting and working across the parking lot from the ocean) has been wearing long sleeves, sweaters, sweat pants, etc... Here is the funny thing...at 9:50am the official temperature is 72 Degrees. It is so funny to see (11 comments)
This morning I had to meet clients quite early, so I got an even earlier start and had breakfast at the beach. I went and got a bagel and coffee and ate it out on the wooden walkover that protects the dunes at Pelican Point Park in Satellite Beach, FL. I watched the sunrise for about 30 minutes while I ate my bagel...that is when I saw the sun break through the clouds and form this very pretty picture....so here it is, breakfast in Satellite Beach (or should I say breakfast on Satellite Beach...lol).

I know my many Activerain friends from the Northeast coast of Florida may disagree...but much debate exists about the exact location that the great explorer Ponce de Leon landed. many now believe he landed closer to Central Florida. This park is one of the potential spots in which some scholars believe (based on ship records) he may have landed. On a beautiful Sunday morning here are some pictures of the park and the beach. This is a great place to come. The park never seems to have too many tourists or even locals along it's shore....just a great place to (7 comments)
It is that time of year again. We celebrate the birth of our Great Country! To all my friends out in Activerain land...please have a very safe and happy 4th of July. I hope you all have a great time and see lots of fireworks. My boy and I are going to watch the festivities here in Melbourne Florida. We will be watching the fireworks at Front Street in Historic Melbourne so if you are in the area and see me, come by and say hello! Happy Independence Day! (3 comments)
To all my family, friends and blog readers.... I wanted to wish everyone a very Happy Easter or Passover. It was amazing this morning to see so many fellow Space Coast residents finding spots along the beach to attend one of our countless Easter Sunrise Services.The beaches are absolutely packed. Enjoy your chocolate bunnies or chocolate covered Matzos today! Spend as much time as you can with family and friends....we can all worry about going back to work or school tomorrow!! (3 comments)
off topic and humor: Happy Thanksgiving 2011 - 11/24/11 09:00 AM
Hello to all my friends in AR land. I just wanted to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to all. We have so much pain in the World...yet it is amazing to me that in a time of high unemployment and a home crisis that has no equal in American History people in the U.S. can be so giving. One of the ladies in my office is collecting clothes for children who are in major need (even in Florida we have some cold nights and you can not believe the number of children who no longer have a place to call home). Her (4 comments)
off topic and humor: When it Comes to Real Estate...Does it Matter Who Wins the Presidential Race? - 10/19/11 08:59 AM
I occasionally get into conversations about real estate with people...in fact the minute they find out I am a Realtor (wear your badge and this will happen even more often) they begin asking questions. Usually...How is the market? Are you selling anything right now? and many more questions come up...but lately I have been asked how I think a change in President might change the market. I think this is a fair question. I know most people have strong opinions on each of the Republican candidates...and also have opinions either way on President Obama. My opinion is strictly based on how (3 comments)
off topic and humor: Memorial Day Wishes - 05/29/11 12:21 AM
To all the veterans of all the wars (too many) that the United States has fought in...I write this with great gratitude for the service you have given to your Country. We are forever in your debt. No matter what you may read in the press or what is said on the networks...please know that we...the people who live and work and die in our great Country believe in what you have done and hope you have a wonderful Holiday...it is your Holiday!!!!
off topic and humor: NBA Playoffs Very Interesting Stuff - 04/30/11 03:08 PM
I have been watching many of the NBA playoff games. Last night I was shocked that San Antonio went out in the first round. I am looking forward to the Boston-Miami series...and I think the Lakers will be in trouble with Dallas. In the playoffs it sometimes comes down to which team is hungrier...and it seems to me Dallas has been trying to win for so long Mark Cuban will buy everyone in the U.S. a drink at the bar if his team wins! Boston-Miami I think will come down to how effective Shaq can be....it he plays the entire series the (0 comments)
Here is a picture from my hotel room in Indialantic Florida. This is the view from the private balcony. It overlooks the pool, bar, deck...and of course the beautiful Space Coast beaches. The beauty of this area is not just the gorgeous beaches...but also the fact that the beach is less then an hour from Disney World as well as the Universal Studio parks. What a great time and what wonderful year round weather! (4 comments)
off topic and humor: OMG...My METS are just SOOOOO Bad!!! - 04/16/11 11:21 PM
I was watching some of the two double headers this week that the Mets participated in. They lost both both games of both Double Headers....that makes them 4 wins and 11 losses...what an ugly start to the season. I new they would not be great...but I hoped they could be a 500 team. It appears at this point with no real starting pitching...and the starter doing the best job...Chris Young just went on the DL. This is gonna be a long season for METS fans. We will need to suffer through the fact that our owners are out of money...or going (7 comments)
off topic and humor: Picture of My Boy in Disney World - 03/20/11 01:47 PM
Anthony and I went to Disney World a couple of weeks ago. We absolutely loved our time together as we made our way through the different Disney Parks. This is a picture in Epcot Center in front of the Spaceship Earth Ride (his favorite). I think we spent 12 hours a day in the parks...not a cheap vacation...but some priceless memories....oh and by the way...it way 75-85 degrees and sunny everyday...awesome!
off topic and humor: Happy St Patrick's Day - 03/17/11 02:25 PM
As a guy who was born and grew up in New York...I had quite a few really great times at the NYC St Patrick's day Parade...it was always a great...and wild time Denver has a really large St Patrick's Day Parade that may not be the match for NYC...but was a great time (held this past Saturday March 12th). That being said...March 17th is the real Holiday! Head to an Irish Pub (the best in Denver is the Irish Snug on Colfax) and have a green beer. If you are in Highlands Ranch head over to Lansdowne Arms in the Highlands (3 comments)
off topic and humor: MLB Update: Who Seems To Bed Going in the Right/Wrong Direction? - 03/12/11 03:16 PM
I am watching spring training to see which teams seem to be heading in the direction their fans want them to go...and which teams fans would like a re-start. I think fans of the Tigers, Mets, Dodgers, Cardianals and Yankees might want a do over start. The Phillies, Red Sox, Twins and Giants seems to be headed exactly in the direction their fans are hoping. The Cardinals after losing a starting pitcher Adam Wainwright are in quite a bit of trouble this year. The Yankess lost when Cliff Lee signed with the Phillies...they seemed to have much of their season pinned on getting (4 comments)
off topic and humor: MLB Report: Spring Training - 03/05/11 10:47 PM
So Florida and Arizona are in full swing and the Spring Training schedule had started for every MLB team. The Grapefruit and Cactus League games have showed us some glimpses of what each team is trying to do. Based on what I have seem from the early games the Phillies are going to be very tough in the National League...that starting pitching and batting order are amazing. My NY Mets look like they are in for a tough year...not enough pitching or hitting to compete. The local Rockies look like they are going to be very tough...that is exciting the fans (5 comments)
off topic and humor: MLB Predictions....Who Will Win The World Series - 02/28/11 08:38 AM
Here....with my third annual Bold Predictions I will let you know ahead of time who will win the Playoffs and World Series. You have my permission to bet the house on these incredible predictions: American League: AL East Champ: Boston Red SoxAL Cental Champ:Minnissota TwinsAL West Champ:L.A. AnglesWild Card:NY YankeesAL Playoffs: Red Sox over Angles and Twins over Yankees...Red Sox over Twins for AL Championship National League: NL East Champ:PhilliesNL Central Champ:Reds NL West Champ:Giants Wild Card:Rockies NL Playoffs: Giants over Reds and Phillies of Rockies...Phillies over Giants for NL Championship World Series: Red Sox over Phillies
Predicted Order of Finish: 1. San Francisco Giants2. Colorado Rockies3. San Diego Padres4. L.A. Dodgers5. Arizona DiamondbacksIt is hard for me to believe anyone is going to unseat the Giants. They have the perfect park for pitchers to flourish. The Rockies have a really good young team...I think they are a quality starter away from pulling the division out. The Padres to a large step backwards this year...the Dodgers may jump them for third place. (6 comments)
off topic and humor: MLB Predictions: AL West - 02/27/11 03:53 PM
At first glance the AL West seems to be in a very difficult position. The teams here have taken a bit of a step back from previous years. I think it will be very difficult for a team from this division to represent the AL in the World Series. Predicted order of finish: 1. LA Angles2. Texas Rangers3. Oakland A's4. Seattle Mariners The Angles had quite a few injuries last year...so they should be slightly better then the 80 wins they had in 2010...the prediction here is more about the step backwards I think the Rangers will take by losing Cliff (7 comments)
off topic and humor: 2011 MLB Predictions: NL Central - 02/27/11 03:42 PM
This is always an interesting division. The winner here is really hard to predict. I think it will come done to the final few games of the season. Predicted order of finish 1. Cincinnati Reds2. Milwaukee Brewers3. St Louis Cardinals4. Chicago Cubs5. Houston Astros6. Pittsburgh Pirates I think with the injury bug hitting the Cardinals (Starting pitcher Adam Wainwright out for the year) and quite a bit of age...the Reds seem to be a fairly easy pick here. But I do think the top three teams will be only a few games apart. The Brewers are a young team with a lot (6 comments)
off topic and humor: Annual Baseball Predictions: National League East - 02/27/11 12:45 AM
From my forth annual predictions...here is how I see the NL East. 1, Phillies2. Braves3. Mets4. Marlins5. Nationals Ok...the Phillies are probably the biggest no brainer in MLB. The only issue here is this team is getting older by the minute. That said...it would take a lot of injuries and bad luck for them not to win it. The Braves could not beat them last year and they now have no bullpen and have done little to improve. The defense in the infield is awful. The Mets have pitching issues although they are likely to score more runs this year if (3 comments)
