Sharks teeth hunters- listen up!

Posted 02-28-2017 at 10:50 AM by llrivero

One of my addictions is hunting for fossilized sharks teeth. I have such an obsession that I find myself staring at the ground even in parking lots of developments that have brought shell in to line their flower beds and parking lots........ and it has paid off for me BIG TIME!! I have found some big ones in the least expected places!
Locals know that the beach known as "THE SHARKS TOOTH CAPITAL OF THE WORLD" is located in Venice... Caspersen...

Quiet SWFlorida Beaches- Old Florida Style

Posted 02-24-2017 at 07:26 PM by llrivero

When asked where “Florida’s least crowded best beaches” might be… enchanting Manasota Key Beaches comes to mind!

Just off the coast of Englewood between Sarasota and Fort Myers on Florida’s Gulf Coast, Manasota Key is 7 miles in length with four expansive beaches.

Englewood Beach lies just over the south bridge and features a boardwalk, picnic tables under shelters, restrooms and changing facilities. Restaurants and tourist shops are located nearby.

Florida Scrub Jay's.... do they walk or fly?

Posted 02-18-2017 at 03:53 PM by llrivero

What the heck is a scrub jay..... I see a picture of a bird......... wait......... don't they fly? Why would they be "crossing"??
Okay, I have an inquiring mind.... so I wanted to find out for myself.
So, here is what I found out! These little beauties are on the threatened species list for the State of Florida... they ONLY live in Florida.... and yes they can fly. HOWEVER, they like to walk along the side of the roadways and bury nuts..... and pick up bugs. Therefore........

It's All About The Bacon!

Posted 02-18-2017 at 03:49 PM by llrivero

I decided that it was high time I write to you about one of my passions... and apparently a lot of other people share the love of BACON!
I mean, you really cannot go wrong with bacon... have you heard the term "Bring Home the Bacon"? Well, it was not a phrase coined by the commercials in the 80's with the sassy blonde dancing around the house.... it actually originated from in the 12th century from a church in Dunow, England. The church offered a side of bacon to any man who could...

Do you have "Wine" time or "Whine" time?

Posted 02-15-2017 at 02:51 PM by llrivero

With the crazy days of juggling family life, work life, relationship time, caring for the pets, and responding to the endless emails, texts and phone calls.............. the non stop connection to the world can make one go a little "wacko"... I personally prefer to wine. I find my happy place to be my back patio with a glass of wine....... no phone or laptop in sight........ just watching the birds and hanging with my cats. When I get a little overwhelmed....... I just step away....
