The following is an unfortunate incident that happened Halloween night.  The video above is footage I took myself- as this death wasn't too far from my place and I passed by it on the way home.
 
Out of respect for the dead here, I'll eschew a question I'd typically ask when reading this story- in wondering why a 14-year-old was trick-or-treating in the first place.  Instead, I'll point out the attitude of the boy- which he undoubtedly learned … (0 comments)

Under The Influence(s)- An Entry Into My Own Contest
 
WARNING:  This could be a tough read for some.  From the beginning of my Under The Influence(s) contest, I've planned on writing an entry myself (understanding, of course, that I can't get any kind of prize).  I'll take no offense if folks don't read the whole thing- as part of it is a brutally honest, hard-hitting piece of writing that will make some uncomfortable.  Before I begin, I'll stress two things for folks to keep in mind: 1) I'm fine- don't worry about me, and 2) I don't intend to elicit … (10 comments)

Wacky Wednesday: How's this for curb appeal?



Wacky Wednesday: How's this for curb appeal?
     This is just down from my place a bit.  As I passed by and saw this earlier today (this must have burned down in the last day or so), I couldn't help but wonder...
"How's this gonna help the poor sap trying to sell the place next door?"
Dang...

Pedestrian Tales From the Middle of the Road, #47
Coming not too far behind PTMOTR #46, we have the latest pedestrian in our area to die crossing the street while outside a crosswalk.  Some things are different from each of my stories to the next, but a few things are surely constants:  folks here cross the street when and where they choose to do so, they have little to no concern for motorists, and they simply expect that vehicles will stop for them and respect their roadway.
Another constant is the lack of law enforcement with regard to our pedestrian traffic … (2 comments)

How many folks have you had a positive impact on today?  How have you treated folks today?  Most would say "I guess I was nice to everyone today, I probably treated everyone well, I could've had a positive impact on others..."- and some of you would actually be right.
But what about the rest of you?
Being kind to friends and family members is at once the easiest and hardest thing for us to do- they're the ones we'd … (4 comments)

OK.  This might sound crazy...or weird...or dumb- I've had ideas that qualified as each of the three in the past, so it'd be no big shocker were folks to throw any given label on my idea here.
But I was thinking as I saw a beautiful sunset on my way home a bit ago.  There was nothing particularly special about it, mind you- just that I stopped to think about how beautiful it was.  And I … (0 comments)

Apopka, Florida: America’s 14th-friendliest town

Take that, (#15) Queen Creek, Arizona! We’re on your heels, (#13) Hopkins, Minnesota!
Forbes Magazine is famous for it’s lists- World’s Richest…this, America’s Most Dangerous…that.   Some of them are all-too-predictable: we know Bill Gates has money, we know the Walton Family is doing pretty well- and there’s a good chance most can figure outhow dangerous a particular area is without the help of a magazine.
One of Forbes’ most recent lists might include some surprises, though. Who knew (other than us Apopkans here)? Apopka, Florida was recently ranked as … (0 comments)

Near-miss on the roads of Orlando
Near-miss on the roads of Orlando Many have viewed my posts in my Pedestrian Tales From the Middle of the Road series- which at last count had tallied 38 needless pedestrian deaths. I've surely never expected to hit anyone- though there have surely been times when I've swerved to avoid a wayward pedestrian (or even a family of them). This photo from my trip to work yesterday morning gives a bit of a look into how things go around here. It's my hope that this post serves 2 purposes: an informational/awareness one that all … (0 comments)
