How to stay warm

As long as you have electricity an electric blanket is wonderful.  Most of the time I don't run the heat I just stay under a blanket when at home.When you cant stay in bed put a space heater in the room you will be in.

Hot tea will warm you in and out.

Chili is one of my favorite foods for cold weather.  I add extra peppers and eat it with bread or rice.
I did leave out the oatmeal and grits for cold weather breakfast.

Pumpkin Spice Coffee and Cinnamon Roll's

Today I will be going to the doctor so I took the day off work.  I stayed in bed until seven and when I decided I could not stand to be that lazy I got up and prepared a holiday breakfast for one.  Instead of my daily mild wake up roast coffee I pulled out the Pumpkin Spice coffee that a friend gave me a few days ago. Then I baked the cinnamon rolls I purchased just for today.  Mmmmm sometimes it is good to have all your daily calories in one meal. 
Now I am ready to dress and go out for an early walk.  The doctor isn't until twelve thirty.  I have most of the day ahead of me.
I inserted a video of one of my walking friends.

cell-phone dry out

tractor for children

I found this fun shop in St. Andrews, Florida.  The tractor must have some good history.  The child that first had this must have had day's of fun on it.

Walk at Oaks By The Bay

A wonderful day for a walk.

I took some time to look at the sign.

Here is some new information.

This is a wonderful park.

I like the flowers 

The wood work is fine but I could have done with out it.

My grandson likes this part best.

Out of the park now we walk to the marina.

Hope you enjoyed my walk.  Wish you could have joined me.

Give me a good politician

I am so tired of politicians talking bad about each other.  It seems to me that they are just talking about  others to avoid the truth about their own mistakes.  Give me a politician that will announce what he believes, admits to what he has done in the past and tells what he would like to do in the future.  Put it out there and stop wasting our time with talking about each other.

Migraine's are offal

Yesterday I got a migraine at about 1:45PM.  I came straight home from work and took my sumatriptan and phenadoxz but it didn't help.  I waited an hour and took it again and went to bed.  I woke up today and still had a headache but not a full migraine.  The headache today was more like a hangover.  I am fine now except for being a little dizzy and my stomach is not back to normal.  I have had these headaches since 1990 and I am tired of them.  With all the medical inventions I wish they could come up with something to cure this. Migraines are offal. I feel hopeless and tired of migraines.

Tropical Storm Isaac passed us.

Spared from Tropical Storm Isaac so far

8-28-12 12:00AM
I walked to Oaks by the Bay to see how high the water was.  It is at the first step.

 Since we are in Florida and the storm is going to hit Louisiana we don't have much to be concerned about.
It is a beautiful sunny day, a little hot but the wind is wonderful.

It did look like this homeowner may have a problem with is dock.

This is a little under water.

 It looks like some wood washed up on the bank.
 I hope this tree will make it another sentry.
I had to take another picture of the palm.

 The boat and flag are pictures I took for my Grandson.

 It is funny they close the schools but don't take in the city swings.
