I was in Target this weekend....and the flippin' signs were in SPANISH, with a bit of english written under it!

This place is great, but if there was one, or two things I would change...

1- make EVERYONE speak english. Speak any other language and get a bat across the head. I think it's fine we welcome people that are trying to make a better life, but this is the damn USA.
2- Old pepole. I know it's not nice, but round them up, feed them into a wood chipper and use them for chum for sportfishing. Or use them as live bait for making shark movies..

I'm usually a nice guy, but you've highlighted something that gets me fired up all the time...
Let me know when the baseball bat legislation makes it to the books. I love to play ball if you know what I mean. I'd love to move to FL, but I'm not sure I could handle living in little PR! I go out of my mind every time I see stuff printed in Spanish down there. I know some Spanish so it's not that I don't understand the language, it just burns my azz that we've let it become the dominate language down there. WTF. By the time I ever get around to retiring (in FL), my fear is it will be nothing but a Spanish speaking crime zone roped off at the border so US citizens don't enter.

Default BE NICE !!!!! You Floridians

Wardey and the rest of the Florida Natives,

You just had to go rub that in on all of us that are home freezing,shoveling or those who are staring at snow. We all know you have the better weather but you don't have to rub it in.

Yaeh, summer is warm, but it keeps you in shape.
I can tell it's getting cool and I'm putting on my winter weight... I'll loose it all in the summer.

The spanish speaking thing isn't bad around here, St Petersburg. I was in Miami a little while back. Made a wrong turn and all the signs on the buildings were in Spanish, thought I was in another country!

Now now Troutly. One of our favorite songs down here is "If It's Snowbird Season, Why Can't We Shoot'em"

Followed by:
"Bag'em and tag'em and ship'em back overnight air".

It's chilly enough tonight we built a fire in our fireplace. Yes, a real wood burning, no fake gas job, fireplace.

Tomorrow supposed to hit 79 degrees. Outlaw
