Almost winter in Florida, hard to believe seems like just last week I had decided that freezing to death
in Cowboy Heaven Montana ,was better than doing the daily being slow cook ed to extradition routine of Florida summers.
Daily it goes like this 4 am : 98 degrees,humid, noon: 147 degrees plus oh well 500 percent humidity(moderate) that’s when you step out of the shower and you have to check to make sure you did turn the water off.
5 PM: 100 degrees, high humidity(that means the gills that were hidden on you are open and functioning) midnight: 75 degrees (low humidity and your shivering.)
No I am Not joking.
Then oh my gosh the bugs, the big as frickin dumptruck roaches, politely called “palmetto”
bugs. No one in Florida admits they have roaches, you’ll hear did ya notice the new hatch of them palmetto bugs Mary Joe Beth?? How could you not notice ? I mean as they race across the floor they leave indentations.
The banana spiders that jump out of trees to eat you, the fire ants that wait until there are 5000
on your nearest arm, leg, face whatever they can get to, then bite all at once, because they are trying to kill you. I hate fire ants. But I am pretty sure I have never mentioned that before.
We have a pest control company that treats our property for termites,on a annual basis and because they are so nice ,while they are charging you half the income you will earn for your entire lifetime for this small service, they kindly spray for things like Black Widow spiders, Recluse Spiders,Scorpions.
I laughed the first time the man said he had sprayed and found 500 black widows nests, I thought he was kidding. Ha! He wasnâ€™t.
So now that winter is almost here, where did I put all the sweatshirts…
I just love Florida.

This is a experiment.. to see if I truly understand trackbacks.. and how they work
So first I visited Harvey’s site, which is actually hilarious because he gave good examples
here Harvey’s site bad example.mu , he positively gave plain easy to understand info.. that I didn’t get..
so I moved on to Michael of Cruft (ya freakin have to love this “of” stuff.I am certain it also has some higher meaning that I havent figured out either)cruftbox he uses pictures which sort of made me feel better.. yall know.. the I’m not the only idiot child here..
So here I am 2 blogs later, getting a glimmer, no light bulb yet,just a faint glow.But I did pick up a cool new groupies logo to add to my collection so it is all good!
Here Harvey.. please tell me I did this right..

A strange side effect of being sick for me is insomnia,I am not sure why,but
I have learned the best thing to do is get up and work on a ongoing project..
you know one of 10 or 20 things’s you’ve been meaning to do and haven’t.
Putting a flickr badges on the blog has been one of those projects, set on the back burner until last nite!
I donâ€™t understand java, I have never met anyone who does understand java.
My friend MikMik, of the bog says no one understands java, it works, so get over it.
But when my eyes see java script, my brain goes left.. you know
like into a cyberhole of nothingness.. so I am very careful when I approach java anything.
After googling, I was delighted to find a plug in at tantannoodlesthat worked!
Thank You Joe!
