Not content with destroying a perfectly good marina and upending the lives of a nice group of boat owners and live aboards, HWSNBN has now set his sites on one of the last affordable rv resorts in Marathon.  Yup, the bastard is at it again.  This time he wants to buy out the Knight’s Key Rv […]

A Can Of Worms...

I’ve been posting about the imminent invasion of a certain major retailer to these fair islands over the last few months.  Last week they sent some emissaries from the mother ship to visit bringing chocolate chip cookies and shiny objects for the Chamber of Commerce to play with whilst they plotted their eventual take over […]

The Madness Returns...

The last Wednesday and Thursday of July is upon us and if you live in the Keys you know what it means. Lobster Mini Season! Probably the most loved/hated time of the year in the islands.  Starting this weekend and running through the next, these rocks are going to be covered with divers in search […]

Yesterday whilst sifting through the hundreds of spam emails I get every day now, and special thanks to the son of bitches who felt it necessary to put me on said email lists…We will meet someday…I happened across a comment from Martha, down in the Caribbean.  Normally if I get a good comment I might […]

Romancing The Rock...

Next week while a bunch of fat old white guys parade around town imitating one of the greatest writers of our time, and the rest of the Keys gear up for Lobster Season, (more on that next weekend), the Key West Chamber of Commerce will be getting a visit from those lovable and oh so […]

It's Like Looking Into A Mirror...

A really wide, big mirror.  I trudged over to the grocerteria today in order to obtain some sustenance for my body lest it waste away to nothing…fat chance it will ever happen…and I happened to notice the store was full of fat old guys with trimmed white beards.  At first I thought I was walking […]

Once in a while it happens.  The stars align just right, things fall into place, and all is well with the world.  At least it seemed so this week for a change.  I’ve been struggling week by week to get things off the ground and gain some decent income without much success.  Every week has […]

I’ve talked many a time in the past about the Key West Bus Service.  Not having a vehicle, thanks to gravity I no longer ride a bike, and other than walking, the bus has been my main source of transportation across the island.  It has proven to be very adequate for my purposes.  At a […]

If you drive down through the Florida Keys chances are anytime you pass water, which would be that long flat wet stuff on either side of the land part, you will see old or abandoned boats floating or half sunk.  They are everywhere down here and it is a problem.  These boats are all well past […]

I sorta kinda got one yesterday, by mail.  Ya’ll remember back in the dark, dank days of this past winter when I signed up for the wonderful program called Obamacare?  I really didn’t want to bother with all the health insurance bullshit, because all health insurance is…bullshit.  But, because our beloved and all knowing all powerful gubmint says […]

There has been a marked changed in attitude of the staff at the Publix lately.  Suddenly, everyone is extra friendly, except for the woman who cleans the bathrooms.  I’ve never seen her smile.  But everyone else seems to be just so eager to help you with your food choices.  You’ll notice it the most back […]
