Advent resolutions number one: no political rants and raves until after Christmas! It’s going to be tough folks but this is what I’m going to do who is my thoughts on how we going to do Advent this year.

1. Every single Sunday my local Bishop Parkes has an Advent thought on his podcast!!! Here’s this Sunday:

Folks, I’m trying to stay positive all this negative and polarisation is sucking the positive and negative air out of me.

2. Instead of posting anything else other than pictures, I’m going to post the readings for the day , period.

Here is today’s readings from the bible about Christmas….uh, Advent.

And hear some music if you have iTunes you can hear

That should be enough to keep you busy and thinking positive thoughts with me over the next four weeks.

Think of me my folks, because I have a fourth grade class near the beach because I’m covering for somebody’s maternity leave I can’t talk too much about it because it’s confidential and work and I kind of keep this separate, so think of me fondly… 


I have lived here in the Tampa Bay area for over 40 years. I am a native of New York. The purpose of this blog is to show what it is like to live here and not vacation . This is Florida’s Daily life. Paradise has “moments” too. This blog attempts to reflect my Catholic Christian faith with balance and sunshine and a crack at holy humor. I have a real sense of humor. It is hot here .
