Fla. Update

Hi Bloggers. Like the new look of the blog? Nothing much happening down here... photos are from a Lobster joint Karen and I went to a few weeks ago. It's a Chinese restaurant, and I kept seeing an ad that read "5lb lobsters for $39 w/ coupon" so we finally checked it out. The place was in a strip shopping center and they had huge lobster tanks when you walked in, and, yes, they did server you 5 lb. lobster for the price... It just didn't taste like fresh lobster. It was just "ok" if that's possible with lobster. They certainly don't fly them in from Maine each day like some of the fine dining establishments in town. These lobsters must have flown on Delta and arrived late! Sorry for the cheap shot, Bar!

My friend Rob and I are going to the new U2 movie in 3D at an IMAX theater here in town. He loves the group, and the sound and visuals are supposed to give you that "you are at the concert feel." Should be fun.

Lago Mar is really feeling the impact of the economy. We should be practically sold out each day by this time of year, but the occupancy rate has been around 70 percent during the week and around 90 percent on weekends. This will be my 4th "season" there, but it looks like it's not going to be as profitable as in years past.

Went to the Florida Panthers game last night... we won in an overtime shootout.

Have a few side projects going on... just your garden variety of photo restorations, enlargements, etc.

Karen and I are going to Rob's friends house in Coral Springs for a Super Bowl party Sunday night. I work till about 4 p.m. Sunday. Don't really care who wins, but would like to see the '72 Dolphins retain their "perfect season" as we have little to crow about when it comes to sports down here. All are professional teams are pathetic lately!

Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow... sorry about that extra 6 weeks of winter.

Have a great weekend!
