Florida Woman Accused of Shooting at House Guests Who Stayed Too Long

I have a sister-in-law at the house right now. She’s lucky that we don’t live in Florida.

This thing is huge!

I wonder if the perspective is faked and the thing is not really that big.

How to live near the water without spending a million (or more)

Scott Burns: How to live near the water without spending a million.

Scott Burns is down in Florida again. He does this trip every so often and writes about manufactured (read “trailer”) homes. He is correct about the cost advantages. I am tempted to get in the car and go see the parks he mentions for myself. I know I can do with less space. Particularly if I could have a boat in the water within walking distance of my front door.

I have long dreamed of taking my design experience into the world of manufactured homes. When you look at the property that is available in Florida for manufactured homes, it is clear to me that there is a market for a luxury product. I don’t mean luxury as the current manufacturers define it. I mean luxury with a trailer full of premium brand names.

I’m confident people would pay for it.

I’m also baffled (well not really, as there are many reasons) at why we all don’t live in manufactured homes. I am probably not the guy to break through all the resistance to manufactured housing, but I would sure like to go to work for him.

Life’s Rich Pageant: Meet a Florida Man.

Guy got his dick stuck in a compound bow. He wasn’t even drinking at the time. And no, he’s not even a pervert.

The article also points us to the twitter account of Florida Man. There is some good stuff there.

Sword-wielding Florida man attacks mother’s boyfriend over missing can of shrimp

Sword-wielding Florida man attacks mother’s boyfriend over missing can of shrimp.

There’s nothing more to add. It’s Florida.

OK, there is something to add: Who buys canned shrimp? It’s not like it’s hard to find fresh or frozen shrimp. And this is Florida! Shrimp is everywhere in Florida!

Miami Hookers beat up New Jersey Mom

Something that could only happen in Florida.

I know we’re not supposed to blame the victim, but I have to ask: what was the mom wearing that allowed the hookers to confuse her with a rival?

Just sayin’.

Don’t need to add much, do I?

An Update from Florida

Thursday, April 18th, 2013

Married woman, 42, ‘had sex with two boys, ages 13 and 17, after plying them with cake-flavored vodka as three other teens watched’.

Cake flavored vodka? Why is that even sold? It is completely unnecessary. Vodka is good all on it’s own. It’s kind of like putting mint in chocolate. It screws up the whole experience.

Go look at the pictures with the article. It would take a lot of cake flavored vodka for me to get interested. A whole lot. Those poor kids. I’m certain they’ll be in therapy for years to come. But then again, family dinners 20 or 30 years from now will probably include a lot of laughs.

In case you were wondering, I don’t really have anything against Florida. In fact I love going there. I enjoy the weirdness.
