Maybe it's time for him to learn boat repair and set up your AV/computer network.

I-4, I-95, I-75, Most of Miami, All of Orlando, the smell of Jacksonville, the proximity of the Panhandle to lower Alabama for starters.

On the other hand, some of the springs and rivers are wonderful and there are some really nice beaches.

Word down here is Quebec is tired of bankrolling the Great White North and is splitting from the commonwealth(again) and buying up beaches in Miami.

If this happens where will the NHL get goalies?

I just picked my first Roma tomatoes from my garden last week. I've also got eggplant in a pot that's been producing for about a month, and my potato plant just put up its first shoots.

Mild winter weather is nice, but it does confuse some plants. My apple tree started to produce a couple of little apples that I had to remove, and now one of my blueberry bushes has started to bloom.

Some photos from today:

Green peppers



Tomatoes



Canteloupes



No pest issues. With no early freeze, it should be a good harvest. Here's the whole patch. I'm refinishing the patio furniture. The '66 Raleigh is peeking through the patio door.
