While walking downtown yesterday I saw some interesting art work. First was this bronze Mermaid. I have seen here many times as she is often placed somewhere conspicuous when we have a festival or even pulled down the street for a parade. This time was different. I guess in honor of Easter, she was outfitted with a bra made out of Peeps. These being the sugar coated marshmallow treats we enjoy during the Easter holiday. It made me smile and I had to take a picture. This is but one of the many things that makes this community so cool and fun.

  Well folks, It have been to see a play the The Lake Worth Playhouse. It was Biloxi Blues and it was a great show. The actors were excellent, especially the lead actor, Stoan Maslev, as Eugene M Jerome. I had seen the movie many years ago and loved it too. This local community theater always does a wonderful job. Their sets are inovative and elaborate and the theater itself is a beautiful well kept piece of local history. The Lake Worth Playhouse occupies the former Oakley Theatre, the oldest building on the register of the Art Deco Society of Palm Beach County. It started as a movie theater and vaudeville house and first opened its doors on November 3, 1924. Lots have time have passed by its doors and it still remains a icon of this town. A hurricane in 1928 virtually destroyed the bu...

Ok folks... The Street Painting Festival is over for this year and I am sorry it is done. It seemed like it was a lot better attended than last year. Since we live very close to the event, about half a block, we have lots of friends come by and use our place as a cooling off/refuleing station. In this case fuel is adult beverages...   This picture is of some folks working on their artwork. Specifically it is Eric, Becky and our friend Rick's mother working on their installment this year. It is sponsored by Rick's Pristine Pools.The piece came out great too. Now the beautiful pictures that I was telling folks not to walk on during the event are being run over with casual abandon as the streets are back open to vehicular travel. Alas, they are only temporary. Not made to last. I think the...

Last year more than 100,000 people came out to enjoy the art and street life this show is famous for. There will be a large area just for kids, food and adult beverages. the artists get their start on Saturday morning and need to be complete by Sunday afternoon.

Mr Mayor, Ms Stanton, and Commissioners,          I am writing to you today to express my outrage and disgust at the free spending of cash in this town. Lake Worth from all accounts has no money to spend but yet you voted to spend quite a large amount of money on something that no resident I have spoken to wants. That is the study on reconstituting the Lake Worth Police. WHY!!!!          By all accounts the Sheriffs Department has done an outstanding job. Crime is down. I don't run into the homeless every time I walk my dog and the residents are very happy with this.           Last night at my neighborhood association meeting the president, Andy Amoroso, said that he had asked every deputy he came in contact with if they would stay here should we go back and they all said no. So this me...

So... It seems that Americans who are currently working are less afraid to spend their hard earned cash! This is great news to everyone. Especially those who derive their living from sales.  Hopefully this means they will begin buying homes again. Recent news reports say that Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke thinks that a "self-sustaining" recovery is taking hold because consumers and businesses are spending more. Morgan Stanley economists are saying that 4 percent growth is likely in 2011. And this may be a conservative estimate. In a very selfish way, I don't care about the rest of the economy. I just want folks to get serious about buying a home again. Business has been good here in South Florida but it should be a lot better. Home prices have been so low that is is almost crazy for those w...

Smithbrooke Real Estate & Townhomes for sale in Lake Worth Florida. There are currently 3 townhomes for sale in Smithbrooke, one of the greatest townhome communities in Lake Worth Florida. Out of the three townhomes for sale two are short sales while the other one is a traditional sale (not a short sale or bank owned townhome). Last year the average asking price of a townhome for sale in Smithbrooke was $124,409 and the average list to sales price ratio of the 11 townhomes that sold was 98%. Since the 240 townhomes in Smithbrooke were built from 1998 to 2000, not at the peak of the real estate market, there are less short sales and bank owned properties in Smithbrooke compared to other neighborhoods in the area. Why rent when you can possibly own for less? Now is a great time to buy a ...

New USPS - United States Post Office - in Lake Worth Florida (441 & Lantana) Did you know that a USPS recently opened on the northeast corner of Lantana and 441 (State Rd 7) in Lake Worth Florida?  I didn't until last night when I spotted a little sign outside of my neighborhood.Today was my first visit to the new USPS in Lake Worth FL and it's the first time I didn't have to wait at least 5-10 minutes to mail a package and buy stamps.It turns out this new USPS location in Lake Worth Florida opened about two months ago and I've probably driven by it at least 50 times without knowing it even existed.The new USPS in Lake Worth Florida is conveniently hidden located in the strip mall on the east side of 441 (State Rd 7) right in front of the Super Target.  You really can't see the sign fro...

     Good morning all. I woke up late this morning so insteadof heading to the gym, I decided to take a walk over the Lake Worth Bridge to the beach. My Jack Russell Terrier, Spanky, is always ready to go out with me so we set off.      We live pretty close to the intra-coastal and our bridge has a pretty steep grade to it even though it is a drawbridge. We have taken this walk at all hours of the day but mornings are best. The temperature was near perfect in the low 70's, the wind was very calm and the water was like glass.      The distance is about two miles round trip and we accomplishedit in 28 minutes. Not bad for a big guy huh? I guess one could argue that Spanky, kin spite of his small size helps pull me along. Most folks remark that he is walking me when they see us.       As w...

Recently, a very popular morning TV broadcast had a few stories on Civility and whether or not is is dying. I often wonder the same thing. As we go thru a day, there are many occasions for us to be civil or mean. All to often the mean comes out. It seems that this is occurring more and more. I was at the grocery store a while back and a young child was running down the aisle to her mother. My partner and I were both shocked when she slowed down and actually said "excuse me" as she darted around us. To say that we were happy to hear those two little words is an understatement. We talked about it afterward and agree that this is all too rare anymore! Apart from that little girl, I can't remember the last time I heard a youngster say excuse me as they push past or even please and thank you...

The veterans and their supportors walked down Lake Ave holding flags as shouts and applause were delivered by the few bystanders.on the sidewalk .The veterans marched peacefully down the main street.  The city did not have the money to support the parade this year. Some local veterans decided to to it themselves in about a 7 minute walk in remembrance of our fallen heros  WATCH THE VIDEO! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FS3I0UjsC_g

Housing could be at its most affordable in more than 40 years I just read a really cool article. It says that a California based company called Beacon Economics has created the Beacon Economics Home Affordability Index. They found that in August homes were at their most affordable level since data became available (1969). They developed the Beacon Economics Home Affordability Index based on the percentage of income an average family would need in order to make mortgage payments on an average priced home.Estimates from August show that the cost of home ownership (mortgage interest plus principal payments after a 20 percent down payment) fell to 16.9 percent from 17.1 percent in July. Overall, the Beacon Economics Home Affordability Index has remained below 20 percent for the past twenty-...
