To say Annette was an opportunist only begins to describe the the woman from Rio. (Rio Del, Humboldt County)
She is a striking brunette – both buxom and brassy. She attracted men like a moth to a flame. Whether it was charisma, phernomes or a magnetic attraction- none of her friends understood the dynamic. They merely watched as men dropped hints and business cards and asked her out every night of the week.
She didn’t actually wear a T-shirt that said “Will date for food,” but Annette had created a list of the Top 20 Restaurants in Miami and her goal was to leave her mark and dine at a dozen of the “Top 20” each month.
Her success rate was staggering. Pubbelly, YardBird, Upland, The Bazaar, Pan E Vino, Stubborn Seed were all on her “Been there done that” list.
She was torn between liking a guy or just going out to dinner.
Her secret motto is: A girls got to eat. Her pals kidded that her refrigerator looked like a kennel with dozens of Doggie Bags lining the shelves.
Annette was happy. Oblivious. And out to lunch – and dinner – all week long.
Eventually she decided she was craving karats…and she started a whole new campaign.
Good Bye, California and Cashmere!
And turtle-necks, leather boots, scarves, and gloves, berets, blazers, and wool coats…
Hello, Flip flops, sandals, T-shrts, sundresses, capris
and suncreen in December
(and January, February, March…)
No reindeer – lots of Pink Flamingos –
No Snow-flakes – Lots of Snow-cones
Flipper and Flamingos – The New Normal
Florida- where Palm Reading takes on a whole new meaning.
Miami is just really fun whenever I go there. It’s like this post-apocalyptic Barbie world: everything is pink, and there’re palm trees everywhere. But then there are also all these people in crazy sunglasses
Top 10 things I learned about Florida
- The drivers in Florida are infamous for being are the worst in the nation.
- The produce is a lot more expensive- and you are spoiled in California.
- Everything is located in a strip mall: doctors, dentists, gourmet restaurants.
- There are big box stores everywhere- BJ’s, Wal-Mart, Kmart, Marshall’s.
- Dunkin’ Donuts is on every street corner; Floridians eat a lot of donuts.
- It’s hard to find a Wi-Fi cafés. It is hard to find a “coffee shop.”
- There are no bookstores. (Those two or three Barnes & Noble don’t count)
- Rain can fall in buckets, and miraculously cause traffic to crawl – then clear up instantaneously.
- The summertime clouds in Florida are breathtakingly spectacular. The hot, sticky humidity isn’t.
10. Everyone goes to the beach on the weekends- and it’s impossible to find a parking place- especially in light of the fact they just razed an 800-car parking garage.
And…There is a reason 1,000 people
move to Florida.
Me, smart, too
Florida’s Freshman Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) doesn’t mention University excellance, his GPA’s, SAT scores, or any scholastic accomplishments…he is just a good ol boy…
Mere minutes after getting sworn in he grabbed the mic and commenced to make a fool of himself.
All the world is watching and laughing at Little Matt
A Two-man company, in tiny town Montana
got a $300 million Puerto Rico Contract
…directly connected to Trump officials and GOP donors.
Can you spell Zinke?
The bizarre decision to instead hire a tiny for-profit company is drawing heavy scrutiny from Congress
and comes amid concerns about bankrupt Puerto Rico’s spending as it seeks to provide relief to
its 3.4 million residents,
the great majority of whom remain without power a month after the storm.
#45 tapped Montana Congressman Ryan Zinke, who was raised in Whitefish, to be the nation’s next Secretary of the Interior,
He is responsible for (mis) management of federal land and natural resources.
The Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority recently signed the contract with Montana’s Whitefish Energy… At the time, the firm had two full-time employees. The contract was awarded without a competitive bidding process.
Cruz, the mayor of Puerto Rico’s largest city, described the Montana company as inadequate and said there appears to be a lack of “due diligence” behind the contract.
“These men ask for just the same thing, fairness, and fairness only. This, so far as in my power, they, and all others, shall have.”
