 According to the National Day Calendar Site today is: National Hug Day or National Hugging Day that occurs on January 21st and is officially recognized by the United States Copyright Office, but is not a public holiday.The purpose of the day is to help everyone show more emotion in public.

According to the National Day Calendar site today is National Trivia Day!Each year, the holiday recognizes the collectors of unconnected, irrelevant data, facts, history, and quotes in the recesses of their brains. They are the ones who usually proffer these sometimes astounding bits of history when friends and family least expect it. The word trivia is plural for the word trivium.In ancient times, the term “trivia” was appropriated to mean something very new.Nostalgic college students in the 1960s, along with others, began to informally trade questions and answers about the popular culture of their youth.  After writing trivia columns, Columbia University students Ed Goodgold and Dan Carlinsky created the earliest inter-collegiate quiz bowls that tested culturally (and emotionally) sig...

It may seem hard to imagine that the home you’re in today – whether it’s your starter home or just one you’ve fallen in love with along the way – might not be your forever home.The good news is, it’s okay to admit if your house no longer fits your needs.According to the latest Home Price Insights from CoreLogic, prices have appreciated 3.5% year-over-year. At the same time, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) reports inventory has dropped 4.3% from one year ago.These two statistics are directly related to one another. As inventory has decreased and demand has increased, prices have been driven up.This is great news if you own a home and are thinking about selling. The equity in your house has likely risen as prices have increased. Even better is the fact that there’s a large pool...

San Carlos island in its smaller way is thriving. After all its only half a mile or so from the beach of Fort Myers Beach, downtown and its pier. Some may not even know that it exist. These who go boating or use the  Key West Express Ferrywill notice it for sure. But you don't need to be a boater to enjoy small San Carlos. It has actually quite alot to do.Under San carlos Drive which has seen in the last couple of years  the contruction of new homes and remodeling of classical island cottages.    some of the restaurants are:  Parrott Key: a wild and crazy place with great views and a deep marina http://www.myparrotkey.com/ Doc Fords Fishmonger Bonita Bills : a fixture among sailors, residents  and these looking for a lay back atmosphere  Beach Seafood Market You want to be close to the ...

Early morning walk in Fort Myers Beach. Orchids, Eucalyptus, jasmine, the back bay or Estero Bay. Short clip of Lovers Key. Sometimes we may need to take a step back and smell the roses, lift one's eyes and just enjoy what is around us and smile. Its a simple feeling. Sometimes simplicity is what we most crave for and often we walk away from it. When we do come back to that feeling a sort of peace and strength radiates again within you. We know we can always come back to it.      Fell free to call LLoyd, your local expert. Fort Myers Beach condos $179 K to $550 K

In the last ten years my wife and I have witnessed many dramatic changes in Estero Island and San Carlos Island.  So called progress comes at a price. Some is needed as the constructions of new roads, water system and irrigation, or the beautification of downtown with cobble stones along the walk ways or along 1st street all along to the bay, with french like city lights, palms along the streets and for example a fountain at the very end of 1st Street next to restaurant Nervous Nellie.   San Carlos island older cottage on Prescott st.     All in all a majority seem to prefer the town as it is now. Some miss the hunky tonk look, the more lay back and funky atmosphere of the 80's or 90's an even the early 2000's. Empty lots and old ranch homes or beach cottages have been replaced by large...

Fort Myers Beach Parlemo Circle has a lot to offer. First of all it is a circle so its fun to drive by or take a spin in your bike and go towards the bay and canal it offers on part of the street. It offers a bit of everything : the older the new and the waterfront homes on gulf access canal homes, and some classic old fashioned island cottage charm mixed with large modern slick concrete block homes with spectacular  pool homes bordering the canals with lounge chairs and outside kitchens and others facing the wide waterways of Estero Bay and a distinct peek at the Matanza south bridge which dominates views of the whole island as you first drive in.meborder="0" allowfullscreen>  List of most recent homes for sale in Fort Myers Beach including Palermo Circle. Homes for sale in Fort Myers ...

This week end friends and my wife and I went back Fort Myers Beach Bay Front Bistro. We went there before but this time we wanted to try their brunch and I am glad we did.                                          We went to the second floor which has generous views of the marina and Estero Bay. It has both an outside terrace and very large lounge with an elevated long bar and dozen of round tables facing the high ceiling bay windows. The wives and I had the traditional eggs benedict with shaved ham hollandaise served with small diced seasonal potatoes. Stephen had the Bayfront omelets with mushrooms, diced bacon, ham, onions and more topped with sour cream with breakfast potatoes. My eyes were bigger then my belly and I also had the lobster bisque. Okay so its true I had the bowl. I did...
