places to go, people to meet
And another fast food franchise opens in Fort Lauderdale. It is big, looks and feels new and except that they focus on chicken tenders they are no different from Burger Wi-Fi or The Whole Enchilada or any other new franchise operation.
You walk in--and there are assorted sizes of their menus…

First and foremost a standing ovation and a “Bravo!” to the Broward Performing Arts new sound system. It has been a long time since each spoken and sung word in a musical was as clear and understandable as it was at this performance of “The Addams Family”!
From the first three “Snap! Snap!…Continue

Young people who went through ‘Occupy Wall Street’ should go to see “The Company You Keep” to see how people protested the Vietnam war which had the government killing college students while some of those a little older were members of the Weathermen Underground, a revolutionary group to bring down the U.S.…Continue

This was one of my first blog posts---January 28, 2006--at the third site I started to blog at--7 years later I still believe in all these plus a few more!
Some of the philosophies I have gathered for myself after 70 years (okay 77 now):
1. Life is uncertain--Eat dessert first!
2. Never say never.
3. Eliminate try from a sentence and it becomes a positive statement.
4. Say won't instead of can't which makes you honest.
5. Those who think they know it…Continue

I've experienced better right here at Carlos and Pepe's but let me explain. The first time I came here was about 3 weeks after they opened in 1979. At that time there wasn't a 'Cantina' or a Tex-Mex franchise on every other corner in Fort Lauderdale. For the next couple of years it was a favorite…Continue

By a process of elimination--no desire to see “Jurassic Park in 3D”, “Evil Dead” or “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” we were left with “Admission”. I am a Paul Rudd fan, more about him later, but I publicly admit I am not familiar with Tina Fey. I stopped watching “SNL” years ago though I did catch her clever Palin…Continue

About a week ago, going to the Dollar Tree store, we saw this car parked outside. There are all sorts of miniature animals, toys, religious artifacts glued to the car, mainly on top. He was talking to the manager who obviously asked him what I was thinking and that was, "Why?" He was saying that it…Continue

The full title of Tyler Perry’s new film is “Tyler Perry’s Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor” which is a big handle for what would make a good TV movie with about 15 minutes cut from this fairly slow moving film. I am a big fan of Tyler Perry (except for his Madea character) and I keep hoping…Continue

There was no doubt, legally…Continue

As a rule life goes at one speed most of the time and then comes a big bump which could be either positive or negative. I have come across these bumps from as far back as I can remember until 2008 and since then it has been at that one speed but I am jumping ahead of the story.
