Dirt Bike Time

Saturday we went to Highland Park to do some dirt bike riding. It was a bit cold (34) but once you got riding it was not so bad. Mein Hans had a great time playing in the mud. I did pretty good considering that 5 seconds in I pulled a muscle in my back. I still got a good day of riding out of it. Good times.

Captiva Island Time

Well I missed the second showing of snow in the ATL. I was at Captiva Island in south west FL. Its a very cool island just north of Sanible Island. It takes about an hour to get there from the Ft Myers airport. I arrived Friday and made it back Sunday night. I had a really great room that looked out into the harbour of the resort. The resort does look a bit dated with that 70-80s contemporary style especially around the conference area and front desk. Later I found out that hurricane Charley leveled most of the resort and they rebuilt it back to its exact charming 70-80s dated looking contemporary style. Nice, I think the website for the resort describes it as being posh....Not so much. don't get me wrong my room was very nice and comfortable, but there are 100 other places in FL that look just like it. If you love old FL charm this is the place for you. If not I recommend the Ritz Carlton in Sarasota FL.

Winter Time


Whew, we survived Winter Watch 2008! It was scary, first it got really cold. Then this white flaky stuff started falling from the sky. Soon it was all over the ground. I turned on the news to see if the local media knew about this. Every channel was covering this story, they had reporters on the scene picking up this stuff off the gound. Hmmm I thought, this must be the end of the world. the ticker at the bottom of the TV was saying how schools and businesses are closing because of this flaky white stuff. Then the reporter urged everyone to stay inside. Oh no!!! I thought. There really must be trouble. But then it turned out it was just snowing..

Happy New Years Time!!!

Ok what did you do for New Years? For the second time in a row we went to Trader Vics. This was really a great time. The music is great and the atmosphere is great too. Its not so in your face, but full of friendly faces. I highly recommend this as a New Years Eve destination. Who is with me for next year?

I drank out of a glass with a lady on it. Yum!

Crazy House Christmas Time

We took a trip to Fl for Christmas. We were only there for 3 days but crammed so much in. So Sunday we went over to see my Friend Matt and Jodie they used to be my Neighbors when I lived in Winter Park. We went to what we called "The Crazy House" where we used to live. Believe me when I say this these pictures do not do this justice.

Here is the guy directing traffic

Here is view down the block.

This is the garage

Here is the front. There are people in line to look in the windows where they made displays in all the windows. I wasn't about to stand in line.
