Yeah, if I seem like I'm speaking through my teeth, it's because it's "Actively Raining" those awful Florida LOVE BUGS here in Sarasota FL. Today is the worse day. Went kayaking up to Midnight Pass and the love bugs were as thick as smoke there. There, we were afraid to open our mouths to talk, so we silently ran over the grassy hump and jumped into the Gulf. Fortunately, out in the open water, they are not so bad. At least the things don't bite. For any of you who've never seen them, they are little black creature with a tiny (5 comments)
Sarasota...the Cultural Coast - 05/21/07 06:54 PM
One of the greatest things about Sarasota is it's cultural atmosphere. Theatre is one of my passions and Sarasota has such a bountiful offering of live theatre. I was in a play a couple of years back...no, I'm not an actress, but I wanted to try the whole experience and be a part of the theatre. It was always a dream of mine.

I understand that now completely. I ended up doing (0 comments)

Last year she did $13 Million in Sales. That's a lot for a woman who works on her own with no technology tools. On the other hand, I'm impressed with the older Realtors who have (0 comments)
A Realtor's Lament - 05/11/07 03:54 PM
Tuesday, I have a closing in Sarasota, Florida. The couple is divorced, but both are very nice...just not to each other! The Ex-husband was here from up north to "help" the ex-wife move. He went on a bender. The ex-wife had to move stuff out herself. The other night, a neighbor called me to tell me they found the man in the middle of the street, lying face down and groaning. There was a box of take-out nearby. The kindly neighbors took him to his house (which is her house, but she moved out and left him 1 bed). They cleaned him (3 comments)
