This morning, Sept.10th, Hurricane Irma made landfall in the lower Florida Keys. As I write this post the center of the storm sits right about over Cudjoe Key, where I once owned a rv lot.  Key West sits 23 miles to the west, Marathon, 25 miles to the east.  The storm hit as a Cat […]

In Answer To Your Question...

I know what you have wondering about.  It’s been bothering you ever since I came to Hawaii.  And happily, the answer is yes…yes there is. Maui Pie does have Key Lime Pie.  It doesn’t exactly get top billing but they do have it.  According to the girls behind the counter, they even import Key Limes […]

Look at this monstrosity. I’ve been told it is a, “pie”.  But I don’t see any evidence of Key Lime.  Do you see any Key Lime?  I don’t.  It’s because there ain’t any.  Key Lime pie is yellow, not red.  And what’s with the criss cross design on the top?  Is it crust?  On top […]

I’ve been staying busy updating some of the apps for iOS 7.  Manatee Fritters will have a new look.  Key Lime Pie gets a major facelift, it will be much more better with less bandwidth and an easier to use interface.  These updates will be coming out in a week or so and more updates […]

I stopped by that marina again yesterday to see if indeed they had any open slips available come July.  No.  But I will keep checking back.  Sent an email off to the city marina to see what they might have.  No answer.  Not surprised there.  I will probably have to go and beg on bended […]

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 […]
