Raising the Bar: Atlantic Beach Facing Poor Cell Service

Residents in Atlantic Beach are making noise over their deteriorated cell phone service. Our own Jeannie Greenwald is at the center of it all – she faces a daily deluge of dropped calls and an AT&T iPhone that at times could be compared to a useless paperweight. “I look at the phone and it says […]

A Cabin in the Woods: Lafayette Blue Springs

This time we’re recommending glamping. That’s camping, for those of us who love the outdoors and nature— and air conditioning, beds/bedrooms, full kitchens, and a screened porch to enjoy the deep-woods ambiance. Take your pick: the hanging porch swing, one of four rocking chairs, or the picnic table, all enclosed on a wraparound screened porch. […]

We do it for ourselves; it’s not about impressing anyone.   We love the process, the experimenting, the texture, the fun.  We’re always looking for something new. So naturally we’re […]

This is our last installment of the 26.2 for 2012.  It was another smashing success, and as the cities remove the last of the evidence of the race – street markings, yard signage, banner flags that lined our Third Street (aka historic Highway State Road A1A), the neighbors, too, have race remnants around their yards.  The […]
