Delray Beach- The Golden Globes, the National Championship and Our Weather

You’ll get no complaints from me about the second week of the New Year.  One event was attended by a large number of people who were full of themselves, the other by a large number of people full of beer and peanuts, and the other brought large numbers of both together on our beaches.


One bored many fans, the other was what fans hoped for and the other always bring peace and calm to this particular fan.

One of the problems with defending free speech is you often have to defend people that you find to be outrageous and unpleasant and disgusting. Salman Rushdie

Arrogance on the part of the meritorious is even more offensive to us than the arrogance of those without merit: for merit itself is offensive. Friedrich Nietzsche

I have no use for people who throw their weight around as celebrities, or for those who fawn over you just because you are famous. Walt Disney



The countdown begins for the end of football for this season. And then there’s the long wait until August!





I may not agree with you, but I will defend to the death your right to make an ass of yourself.

Oscar Wilde



Have a glorious weekend!

I have always enjoyed quotes by Oscar Wilde. Few people can be bitchy, funny, and unerringly accurate all at the same time.

Kathy, Love those quotes!  And yes, there are times I shake my head at what people choose to stake their reputations on with what they post on social media.  Just because we have the right to say something doesn't mean it's prudent to put it out there.  Bill

Brian England that was one of the best games!!!! Certainly worth staying up for. 

Donald Urschalitz 4 play-off games this weekend!!!

Barbara Todaro I thought of you the other day.  There is a lady who works out with her trainer a few times a week under a pavilion on the sidewalk!  You would be in heaven.

Wayne Martin it is hard to do, but free speech for one means free speech for all...even if you'd like to put a sock in it sometimes. 

Thank you Kristin Johnston - REALTOR® wishing you a great weekend. 

Maria Sapio that is so sweet.  Hope you have a good weekend.

Hi Will Hamm bet you're preparing something yummy this weekend. 

Thank you Myrl Jeffcoat I'm lucky that the trees along the sidewalk do such a nice job of framing the ocean. 

I agree Joe Pryor

Good morning Kathy Streib ,

Love the quotes and as usual the photos are incredible. I so agree with Bill Spear on his comment. I just had to remove a local contracting company from my referral list. Two clients who I referred them to called me this week after things the owners felt compelled to say on Facebook. I was embarrassed for them because they made such fools of themselves..but my clients will not use them because their remarks are so disrespectful and obnoxious. They feel if they are so intolerant of others beliefs then they do not want to work with them.

Excellent post, and I want to share with you, how the French (my mother and father who was educated in the French school system) define arroagance.  "Arrogance is the assertion of ignorance."  Like Dorie Dillard I have distanced myself from referring people that express themselves in a manner that has no respect for other people's points of view.  Like Oscar Wilde, I will defend their rights to say whatever they have to say, but I will not do business with them.  A
