That Woman Named IRMA

Posted 09-18-2017 at 12:07 PM by llrivero

So, I wanted to just share my story as a person who went through their first hurricane as a Florida resident... I have been here through other "threats"... and tend to follow the vibe of my husband, who went through Hurricane Charley, and lived to tell me about it. But this crazy storm of a size that no one had ever seen before, made me nervous. The images that were coming across the TV of the spanking Irma was delivering to the Caribbean were horrifying.

Okay, I was flat...

Where did Port Charlotte and North Port Come From??

Posted 07-16-2017 at 09:31 AM by llrivero

Have you heard people say... "OH THAT IS A GDC Home"... or back when GDC developed.... ??
Well, recently I had the pleasure of meeting the seller of one of the homes a fabulous buyer is purchasing...... and he just celebrated his 90th birthday. He was eager to share his life adventures with us and stories of his home. He told us how he came down from New York because he had heard that land was literally being given away in Florida.

Brat? You know who you are........

Posted 05-03-2017 at 05:16 PM by llrivero

In honor of Military Family month..... I thought I would give my perspective of a military brat... and only other brats can truly appreciate all of the fun times we had! Military families experience a lifestyle that no one else can understand..... once you cross through the gates of a military installation you are now speaking "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot". You can recite the phonetic alphabet like the best of them. (that is the language spoken over radio transmissions)

-Parachuting is great fun in Florida, but not for single women on Sundays... it is illegal
-It is illegal in the state to skateboard without a license
-According to state law, every building in Florida meant for public use must have an outward swinging door due to the high winds during hurricane season.

Leaded or Unleaded???

Posted 03-04-2017 at 06:12 AM by llrivero

I hit the 3:00pm wall and treated myself to a stop at our local Starbucks........ as I stood in line looking at the wide variety of beverages available to me I thought...... how did coffee become so much of a dessert item rather than the jolt of javaliciousness that it is?

The menu ranges from Iced Cinnamon Almondmilk Macchiato, Coconutmilk Caramel Macchiato, Iced Vanilla Mochachino, Lattes, Mochas, Frozen Coffee's, single, double, triple espresso's, french press, black coffee, blanched...
