I've noticed a considerable difference this week in Siesta. I see a lot of families on the beach at the moment, however Siesta Fiesta was very busy yesterday but traffic off the south bridge is flowing again!!!

They have begun the migration north. Soon all the 1/2 price specials and 2 for 1s will begin at the restaurants again!! :-) Here in PGI the traffic is never bad, so it never bothered me. But, a chance to double up on my Yeunglings - Gotta Love That!! :-)

I've noticed a pretty big difference but there are still a lot of folks here. Can't say as I blame them, it's too pretty to go anywhere else!

The UF connection is myth. Love Bugs naturally migrated up through Mexico. The Africanized bees are a research blunder though. A geneticist was doing research in Brazil (1950s) using African bees...and oops. I heard that 80% of the wild bees in Sarasota County are mixed with Africanized bees. We had a wild hive in our yard. One stung someone and then others quickly followed. Needless to say, we had to have them exterminated.
