    Whoo-hooo. Finally connected the last wire in the Lanai 12 volt project! Ceiling fan is up, runs quiet and was balanced out of the box. Next week is moving the jaquzzi and starting on turning the old lanai area into an enclosed Tiki Bar. I hate it when time & money are limiting factors!

    I thought you guys would like this caught on my dash cam. Close call on the way home! In retrospect, I should have been more cautious going into the intersection (with so much stupidity going on). Oh, and you'll have to excuse the language.



    Also of note, the dash cam sits well forward and to the right of my POV. I couldn't see the beetle that decided to wait until the light turned red to go because the SUV next to me was pulled up far enough to block the crosswalk.

    And RIP Chris Cornell

    We had a fatality outside my development because of a move like this two weeks ago. Unfortunately Charlotte county news does not warranty coverage in the tri county viewing area of the local news stations. Three seniors all over 85 turned in front of a large landscaping truck like it was invisible. They lost. I love the weather this time of year, but not the snowbirds that should not be driving that comes with it.

    Yes, we hardly ever get coverage but lots of accidents and fatalities.

    Today, I was behind a snowbird (Illinois I think) in the far left lane on 41 and a fire truck half a block behind me. Snowjerk comes to a complete stop in front of me and I swerved around him to avoid an accident plus make way for the fire truck. Snowjerk blasts his horns and yelling at me the moment he sees me going around him but looking in the rear view, I see the fire truck had to stop behind him blasting the idiot with his mega horns.

    Note to snowbirds: not quite sure how it works up north but when an emergency vehicle is coming up from behind, get out of the way! Don’t just stop in the middle of the road. Oh, and don’t come down here and try teach us how to drive in Florida.

    How does that work phrase go when a work project becomes very difficult: "It is hard to remember that you are there to drain the swamp when you are knee deep in Aligators"
