I LOVE the granny behind the wheel of the ancient Studebaker.

Okay, after looking at all of those photos, maybe this winter isn't that bad after all...

Palmetto bugs...EWWWWWW!!! That's reason enough for me to not like Florida.

Wow. I am ready to pack my bags and move. I lived in Orlando, Florida for a brief time when I was in the Navy and it was a pleasant enough experience. But I was 18 and more concerned about meeting ladies than actually soaking up the Florida experience. I also lived in Alaska and there are some nasty bugs up there. And I don't miss the humidity at all. I don't know people can live in it especially in August.
