I’ve often mentioned how nice it is when Duval Street is closed off from vehicular traffic to accommodate special events.  Letting people walk up and down the street instead of herding them along the narrow sidewalks creates exactly the kind of atmosphere you would want from such a venue.  People seem to enjoy being able […]

And no, this has nothing to do with national events.  I’m letting that subject go and moving on to other things now. Chase pointed this out to me yesterday morning and I had seen it while perusing the interweb news sites.  The AAA has published it’s annual report on the cost of driving a vehicle […]

After a busy last few weeks where I completed a website, an app, and yet another website, I thought I would take a day off and relax before attacking my next projects.  I got up in the morning, did my usual stuff and decided to take a nice relaxing ride around the island.  I do […]

Monday I had some big plans. Take care of some Internet work in the morning. Stop by and pick up a package I was expecting in the early afternoon, head downtown for sunset. It all fell apart when I noticed the broken pedal on the bike was about at the end of it’s economical usefulness. […]

Apparently you haven't been paying attention...

It has come to my attention that despite all that I’ve taught y’all some of you out there are still driving motorized vehicles. I spend countless hours slaving over a hot iPad posting about the evils of vehicle ownership and this is the thanks I get. Fine. Be that way. Waste money on gas, insurance, […]

Thar be a storm a brewin' har on this peaceful island...

…And it ain’t got nuthin’ to do with hurricanes. Nope, the newest kerfluffle descending on Key West isn’t over affordable housing, dredging the channel for bigger cruise ships, nor dealing with the homeless. This storm is all about… …a fence. Let me ‘splain with some words and pictures. Take a look at this map… This […]

Shopping...ain't you got better things to do...

So how often has this happened. You’re bored, nothing else to do, so, why not go shopping. “Let’s go to the mall and just look around”. You don’t need anything but you go anyways. And what happens. You buy stuff. “Look, it’s on sale!”. Next thing you’re coming home with a couple bags full of […]

Key West is number 1...unfortunately...

The 2011 Florida Highway Safety Performance Plan is out. This report has all the details of traffic accidents in the state of Florida broken down by county, city, and various other factors ranging in dates from the years 2005 through 2009. I’ll save you a bit of time from leafing through the 128 pages of […]

Little Hamaca Park...

Another little side road that gets you off the beaten path in Key West is Little Hamaca Park. Located on the north side of Key West International Airport, Little Hamaca Park is not anything spectacular but it makes for a nice little ride out of the traffic. The park itself is little more than a […]

Having rid my self of all those nasty physical possessions I decided to continue the minimalist mindset by consolidating my online possessions too. I had three blogs going at once and it had become a bit of pain to keep relevant content on all three. So I decided to fold the other two, pedal fritters, […]
