Participants and spectators braved the "shivering cold" weather at the annual Cocoa-Rockledge Christmas Parade today.  In fact, the temperature dipped down to the upper 80's with a heat index into the 90's.  As usual, the parade was wonderful.  Something just seems to be missing with the hot weather during a Christmas Parade though.  The parade was led by the Rockledge City Council riding aboard "Old Grandma", a restored antique fire engine driven by Retired Fire Chief Richard Nix. Santa came through at the end, wishing for cold weather somewhere along the way.  All of the bands from the locals schools did an awesome job, braving the "shivering cold".It occurred to me later in the day why so many people are moving to places like Rockledge in Brevard County.  My husband, who is the polic...

Jump on in, the water is fine!  That's what everyone is telling me.  This is my first blog, so I am certain that I will look back on this later and run as fast as I can from it.  I am also certain that if I don't just jump in I'll never write one. I have been told to just write something, anything, just something.  Maybe something that I know, or just remembered-but not something that someone else wrote about.  How am I to know, after all I am a "newbie" and "newbies" aren't supposed to know everything, are they? Okay, I'm ready now. Just before jumping I have a flashback to an English teacher's lectures about my lack of respect for literature and grammar!  I can't do it, what if the water is too cold?  I also decided to write PART ONE, in case the water is so cold that I will be forced...

I was born and raised in Florida. A Florida native, once thought to be a dying breed! Not really, however when I was growing up there was not as much in-migration as there is today. I am a child of the 70s. Well, really the 50s if you consider the decade I was born! Where the heck is Rockledge, Florida? I moved here about 10 years or so ago. To be honest, I had never heard of Rockledge Florida even though I grew up 125 miles north of here (closer to Jacksonville). Rockledge is located in Brevard County, Florida. Florida's Space Coast as it known here because we are home to the Kennedy Space Center. Rockledge is almost midway between Jacksonville (145 miles north) and Miami (actually about 200 miles or so to the south), between Interstate 95 and US Highway 1, both major north-south route...

The real estate business is all about selling a house, be it a condo, townhouse, single family residence or whatever. A house is "real property," a physical conglomeration of bricks, mortar, sticks and stones. It has been said many times that a "house does not make a home." A real estate agent may sell you a house but he or she can not sell you a home. So, what makes a house a home?Having spent 20 years in the U.S. Navy my family has lived in multiple locations worldwide including almost 4 years in Japan. In each of these locations we experienced life in varied structures with various types of neighborhoods and surroundings. But one thing was common to them all - they were home. Why, because the things that make a house a home were relocated each time we moved. These things were not the...

Located in west Rockledge Royal Lakes Estates is a gated, upscale community of homes that is so secluded that many residents do not know where it is! All homes are on a minimum of 1 acre lots with 2000 squarer feet living area as the smallest homes (the largest is about 6000 sq ft living area). With underground utilities, the neighborhood has a clean, very green appearance. Located at the end of Barton Blvd, this neighborhood is hidden and exclusive. It does not have a community pool or club house as most homes have their own pool. The homes age range from the early 1990s to the homes constructed in 2207. Conveniently located to I-95 and Orlando, this community makes the perfect secluded, private home location for the discerning homeowner. Close to great restaurants, beaches, Kennedy Sp...

Rockledge, Florida is the oldest incorporated municipality in Brevard County, founded on August 7, 1887. With a 2006 population of 25,225 residents as of April 1, 2006 Rockledge is small, quite and peaceful yet close enough to the active nightlife and attractions of Orlando (45 minutes)  and the Atlantic Coast Beaches (10 minutes). I moved to this area a little over 10 years ago and I love it! But, then, what is there to not love? Excellent schools (public and private), nearby community colleges and university campuses, the Indian River Lagoon offers boating and water-sports! Close to Interstate 95, 2 hours or so to West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale and Miami, day trips for business or pleasure is common. Play golf? Brevard County has 30 or so courses. My favorite is located in Rockledge...
