OCTOBER 30, 2016


How many trick or treaters do you expect at your house??

Speaking of treats,  if you have not been to YUMMY HOUSE in awhile, I suggest you go now before the chances of finding a quick table will be null and void.  My Romeo group recently had lunch, and each of us came away with a very positive impression.  Not only has the food improved, but so has the service.  Yummy serves the best Chinese in Sarasota. 

And in answer to several of you, NO, I still have not been invited to break  bread with the George Miles Romeo group. However, after discussion with my group I am withdrawing my request!!  The only way they'll see me is if we happen to choose the same restaurant on a Tuesday.  Their loss!!!

But,  I did hear from many of you last week regarding the "unsubscriber" and his "nasty" comments......Marlene M writes.." What is wrong with people.  Whoever wrote this is mentally ill or has allot of hate.  A blog is suppose to be fun.  Why read if you don't like it."

  Mark F writes.."would like to know who the guy is.  Dumb and did not pass his first spelling test."  Arnold G writes...Some nasty guy sending you  that email. Very open of you to publish."  Debbie Y writes.."Wait until your "unsubscriber" finds out it's impossible to get off the list.  He will be getting your blog forever."  And finally Larry C writes...."Well whoever your unsubscriber was he didn't know you very well.   You are not fat!!"

There were more, but you get the idea.

Looking for an adult movie?  That's actually thought provoking and well acted?  No bombs exploding or special effects?  Then go ASAP to see DENIAL.   A true story of acclaimed writer and historian Deborah E. Lipstadt.  She must battle for historical truth to prove the Holocaust actually happened when David Irving, a renowned denier, sues her for libel.  Starring Rachel Weisz, Timothy Spall and Tom Wilkinson it is easily one of the best this year.  I predict when Award time comes around DENIAL  will be among the contenders!!

Sarasota has so much going on at this time of year, it's hard to do it all.   One attraction that keeps on giving throughout the year is the Ringling Museum.  With so many different venues,  it would take up too much blog space to present all to you.  Here is one that shouldn't be missed.

The Circus Museum's current exhibit, ASIA UNDER THE BIG TOP,  explores how stereotypes and fantasies of ASIA played to American audiences.  With the help of   a series of lithographs printed to advertise the Circus,  you will be taken back to a time when going to a  Circus was a major event.   While at The Circus Museum,  if you haven't already seen the continuing Howard Tibbals circus collection, it is a must.  I've been back over the years and find new delights every visit.

Looking for a Pest Control company?  If so, I highly recommend  HIRED GUN PEST CONTROL.  We've been using them for years with great results.  They're reasonable, dependable, and able to get rid of most insects on the first call. Quarterly control is recommended.  In addition , Gun will perform your annual termite inspection as well.   You can reach Russ at 941-747-2948.  Leave a message, and he will respond in minutes.

 Once HALLOWEEN is behind us we all know what lies ahead!!!  Well, we have to take care of some important business next week like electing a President.  But after that we have Thanksgiving and shortly thereafter guessed it Christmas....which brings me to my last  story of the week.

For the  43rd time, First Sarasota, The downtown Baptist Church presents their SINGING CHRISTMAS TREE.  I realize it's early, but  with only 7 scheduled performances they usually sell out.  Tickets are on sale now.  All the information is available on ad posted here.

Saw the show several years ago.  It is entertaining, unusual and a great place for out of town visitors.  If you love traditional Christmas music, this is your cup of tea.

JIM'S RANT....With polls showing the almost certain passage of an amendment allowing  for the sale of medical marijuana in Florida, you'd think the state would be ready to go forward on day one.  BUT NO, our slow to react County Commission is calling for a moratorium on the sale of this necessary product. I totally agree with zoning regulations and whatever else is necessary for consumer protection. But, knowing the strong possibility of  passage,   I  feel they should have been ready no later than January one to be open for business.

Until next week when we finally vote on the above and that other matter make this one a good one......JIM

As blog goes to press THE WORLD SERIES is in progress....Does not look good!!!!!
