Planning a Foodie Vacation

I love having my vacation come up during the winter time. It gives me the perfect excuse to head for warmer climes with beaches and cabana boys. Okay – maybe not the cabana boys, but seriously, who doesn’t like to look at least?

This year my trip is to the Florida Keys. I made my decision to go there after watching a food network show on cable TV called “Drive ins, Diners and Dives.” The host of the show goes from place to place, finding the best food to be had and showcasing the house specialties.

The places he found from Miami to Key West looked amazing, so I am basing my vacation on a tour of awesome food and beaches. There is a restaurant in Miami I HAVE to try, so that is where I will start.

I am going to rent a car and then drive from Miami to Key West. Sampling food, cocktails and beaches along the way. No I won’t drink and drive, I plan to stop a motels and just travel leisurely down there even though it is only a four hour drive. I just might go deep sea fishing while I am there, as well. We shall see!

Satellite Versus Cable

When I first moved into my new home, it was cable ready, but I knew from the start that I would prefer to subscribe to a satellite company instead, which I switched to immediately after all of the final paperwork was signed, and everything said and done, in the closing of the house. For the most part I have been happy with satellite, it has been just recently that I noticed an increase on my monthly bill and due to a lot of the high winds that we have been experiencing here, I have lost our signal a whole lot more than usual.

The main issue I have right now is the selection on movies that they have to offer as of late, on their Pay Per View Movies, the last couple of times that I have wanted to just kick back and order a movie just by clicking a few buttons on the remote, their hasn’t been much of a selection that I find appealing enough to order.

Josh Point 0

The Comedy Channel is on most of the time these days. I’m a firm believer of laughter being the best medicine and with this god awful heat that we have been experiencing each and every day, over and over again, we could use a good dose of some mighty fine medicine, along with a nice cold beer!

One of my favorite shows to watch on The Comedy Channel is Josh.O. This dude just continues to crack me up and he is easy on the eyes as well. I’ve talked with some folks that think he crosses the line just a tad bit more than they would like and have stopped watching his show. So far I still find him funny and will continue watching him until they drop an axe on him, which is something that is hanging over his head on a daily basis.

PBS and the Seventies

A few nights ago on our local PBS channel that I get with my current satellite provider had an awesome show on last night promoting the soul music of the 1970’2. The artists that they had there to perform were right on target, most were the original members, unfortunately some were not. My favorites were The Chi-lites, which prompted me to give a listen to “Have You Seen Her” today, of course via YouTube.com.

Insurance Savings Are For Real

I’ve had Nationwide Insurance for as long as I can remember having auto insurance. We are always seeing the commercials from the various large insurance companies urging us to switch over and save around $300 a year by doing so. Well I have to say that I went online and got a quote from Progressive and I switched over today and guess what – I’m saving $50 a month which totals $300, just like the commercials are saying. Too funny!
