tampa: Something nice to dream about on TAX DAY - 04/15/11 05:15 AM
April 15, 2011  
Hmmm, tax day...wanting to escape from my thoughts of taxes, bills & work for a few minutes, I decided to put my blog together about things to do this weekend in St Petersburg, Florida.  As I searched the Internet, I strayed away from my quest (as usual-they are so many interesting things to read out there) & I found this article in the St Petersburg Times. It fit in beautifully with my last few blogs about living abroad. As I read about this couple from Tampa who moved to Costa Rica & looked at the pictures, I began … (0 comments)

Honda Grand Prix of St Petersburg 3-27-2011 16
It was absolutely amazing to attend the events surrounding the Honda Grand Prix of St Petersburg this past weekend. On Thursday, my business meeting downtown with clients just happened to end shortly before the night parade began.

The parade was followed by food, music, various vendors & fireworks. All of this was held throughout downtown along the waterfront parks. What a great way for the … (0 comments)
