We were looking for a little getaway last weekend, and decided to spend a night camping at Lake Kissimmee State Park in Lake Wales, Fl. The park offers campsites, primitive camping, miles of hiking trails, an observation tower, boat ramp for access to Lake Kissimmee, and much more. Check out the blog post above for more! There is 13 miles of hiking trails at Lake Kissimmee State Park, and we saw several Whitetail Deer, dozens of Cardinals, and several other birds we still need to look up to identify. The cow camp was closed with no set reopen date due to infrastructure construction. While out we took a quick trip to Camp Mack to see if there was a fishing tournament going on, but were told that was last weekend. We enjoyed a some food from Bubbas Food Truck while sitting in their new co...

I had received the email yesterday that The Chalet Suzanne will be retiring on or about August 4th.  It has been a landmark restaurant in central Florida for more than eight deades and I've been its fan since 1969.  That's before there was a Walt Disney World as its northern neighbor.  Generally,  I'm a meat & potatoes person but will indulge into the exotic once in a while.  This rare and remotely located Inn has been a favorite stop whenever I travel near its doors.  They'll serve the finest breakfasts, lunches and dinners found anywhere.  My first eggs benedict was consumed here, my first duck l'orange, first crepe' suzette, although they may have called them "suzannes" if my memory is correct.   Whether driving there or flying there the excitement was everpresent because I knew that...

Pedestrian Tales From the Middle of the Road, #33   Here's yet another tragic incident on our roadways- the 3rd such one in the past couple of days.  Criticizing the dead is a touchy subject, and surely makes some uncomfortable.  It's hard not to do so in these cases, though- where willful actions of the pedestrians serve to sentence motorists that follow the rules of the road to years upon years of unnecessary misery without benefit of a trial. While generally a great representative of law enforcement and true asset to the community, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd's falling in line with the majority of local law enforcement folks in not enforcing pedestrian traffic laws has surely contributed to (and fostered) an environment that allows folks to breach motorists' right of way and simpl...

I don't like Big Bully Companies. I don't frequent the Red Door Salon in Lake Wales FL, but after this, I would if I my salon wasn't right around the corner from my favorite ice cream shop. And I like my girls there, too.   Read this article from The News Chief in Polk County FL.   Basically, it boils down to this:   A Mom & Pop salon in Lake Wales has been known by it's name, the Red Door Salon, for 11 years. Now Elizabeth Arden contends the shop is infringing on it's trademark of Red Door perfume; "The trademark gives Elizabeth Arden exclusive rights to the Red Door name for salon and spa services." Regardless of the legalities -- or of who is right and wrong-- The Bully is strong-arming this little salon into changing it's entire brand. They sent a letter saying 'do nothing until you...
