Don’t live the same year 75 times and call it a life. – R.S. One Robin Sharma came up with this quote.  It now serves an honored place with 670 some odd Fritterisms, (collect them all!) and inspired this here post.  I don’t know if Mr. Sharma was ever in Central Pa. but this quote […]

A Tale Of Two Islands - Keys Disease Vs. Practice Aloha...

Come to just about any island near the tropics and you will find life runs at a much slower pace than what you may be used to, especially if you come from some big city up north.  Traffic moves slower, people walk at a much more relaxed pace, and there doesn’t seem to be any […]

I’ve decided to run a little sale for the holidays.  Since I can’t sell my charming wit and devastating good looks, (at least not without violating some stupid court order), I’m having a sale on the next best thing, my wonderful collection of ebooks.  From now until the end of the year, you can get […]

Enough with all the election bullshit.  Time to move on to more important matters. I’ve begun the process of making Hawaii my permanent residence.  It’s going to take a few more months to complete, mainly due to logistics and tax purposes, but by the spring, if all goes right, and the new government does not […]

Best September Ever...

Have you ever spent a long time trying to make an important decision?  Something which would have long term effects on your life?  A decision which may be risky if you decide wrong?  It could cost you a lot of money, time, and have severe consequences if you have errored in your judgement?  And when […]

5 years.  I cannot believe it.  The Fritter is 5 years old today.  When I started this thing I had no idea where I was going with it, but here we are, still going strong.  Still growing.  Still snarky as ever. Of all the things I’ve done, of all the adventures, all the trials and […]

Yesterday, as I was sifting through my emails, social media, and other sites of entertainment, I got the following message from Charlie on the Fritter Facebook page.  His questions were of the type I suspect others may have.  So rather than answer him direct in FB, I told him to stop by here and I […]

It’s one thing to come up with the idea for a book.  It’s quite another to actually put said idea into words.  It’s not as easy as it seems.  Especially when you don’t have any writing ability. I was terrible in high school English classes.  Diagramming sentences, grammar, all that.  I hated it.  It didn’t […]

Time to get off my ass and get some shit done.  I’ve been sitting around dealing with crap and putting off this project for way to long. After the amazing success of my last ebook, Moving to The Florida Keys, links to the lower left on the sidebar, I was inspired to come up with […]

The biggest cold front of this winter came through the islands a couple of days ago.  While we didn’t get much rain, the temps dropped from the record setting 80’s to the mid 60’s at night and low 70’s during the day.  The humidity almost vanished, it never really goes away, and many an ac […]

Living Aboard:  Don't Worry, Be Happy...

It was rather exciting and satisfying yesterday to actually hoist the sails on the Spirit.   They look in good shape and appear to be usable for racing with the wind.  That was a big step in the ongoing saga of getting this boat into some sort of seaworthy condition.  I also managed to get […]

The Sequel to:  So You Want To Start A Stand Up Paddle Business. I wrote it based on my experiences running a paddle board business in Key Largo a few years back and for some reason the search engines picked it up and now if you search for paddle board business, it comes up on […]

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 […]

This past week, for the second month in a row, I received the holy grail of writingdom.  The be all, end all, that every single person from grade school to old fart dreams of when they commence to stringing words and punctuation together in some sort of coherent form.  I received a royalty payment for […]
