Greetings from Florida

I would apologize for neglecting the site except it is so damned hard to think creatively when you’re working over 55 hours a week. Work, come home, eat, sleep, lather, rinse, repeat.

I have been down here since the middle of October working my butt off on a hospital project. Free time is short and up until this last week I have not had time to do any touristy things.

I have, however, had a lot of fun pointing out to my friends in other places that my nights are in the 50s and my days in the 70s while they complain about freezing temperatures and snow.

While I am very near the “Happiest place on earth”, I cannot say that this is a place where I would want to live. Even in the winter, weather is too warm, the air too wet, and the land is far too flat. Besides that, I don’t think I could tolerate that much happy.

The drivers here scare the living shit outta me. Speed limits appear to be merely suggestions, and not being able to see over the steering wheel of a new Lincoln seems like a bad idea for a driver. Now I understand why there are so many golf carts and golf cart trails here. You won’t get so badly hurt if you have a collision at 12 miles an hour.

This is a nice place to visit but I would not want to live here.
