St Pete Clay Company on 22nd Street South in downtown St Petersburg Florida is holding their Empty Bowls event on November 16 at 6 pm. This is an international grassroots event to fight hunger. Local artists have donated their handcrafted bowls, which will be donated at the event. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. Guests will receive a meal of soup and bread for their donation and the bowl can be taken home as a reminder that so many in the world have empty bowls. All cash collected will be donated to the St Vincent de Paul Kitchen in St Petersburg Florida to feed the hungry.

St Petersburg Florida will be holding their monthly 2nd Saturday Art Walk on Saturday October 12, 2013.

  When I packed for the trip with my mother I envisioned the daily routine I was accustomed to but with different scenery. I thought there'd be plenty of time for posting to my blog and facebook, for keeping up with LinkedIn and all those other sites, for responding to emails, texts, phone calls, using my hoop and still have time to enjoy my family, friends AND the other scenery.   The daily routine happened not so much. A different routine took its place and it turns out, that's okay!   The Office Manager and Leslie greeted me at the Asheville Regional Airport last night when I returned from the whirlwind trip. The Office Manager spotted me through the airport's sliding glass doors long before Leslie did. I couldn't hear Sienna but Leslie tells me that this little dog started squealing...

The sea fog is so thick you can almost cut it with a knife! Yesterday afternoon we went down to Boca Ciega Bay. Ronnie wanted to check out War Veteran's Memorial Park in Bay Pines (St Petersburg) to see what their boat launch looks like and I wanted some photos of the intercoastal waterway on the bay. When we left Crystal Beach, the sun was shining and the sky was blue. By the time we had travelled almost an hour south in our own county, the sea fog was so thick, it really looked like you could cut it with a knife. This was at 2 in the afternoon! Normally, these photos should be crystal clear since the other shore isn't that far away. The sky should be blue. I was indeed disappointed. When we got back to north county, where we live, it was still blue skies and sunshine for another hour ...

Weedon Island Preserve in St Petersburg Florida is indeed a bit of wilderness. This is a wonderful place to visit to discover a bit of Florida the way it was years ago, back when the Native Americans were here. This is a fantastic site to launch your kayak, have a picnic, go hiking or learn a little about the archeological digs that have taken place at this site. When planning a day in Weedon Island Preserve, be sure to bring your camera and have plenty of time. There is so much here to see and enjoy!

  Tips for Staging your Home to Sell   1.  Unclutter:  Sometimes less is more.  There have been homes i have been in where it is a maze just to walk through because of too much furniture.   It left the room feeling small and less open.   Also unclutter closets and storage space.  These are 2 features buyers look for and when these area are cluttered then they feel smaller than they are.  2.  Paint:  Painting your house is a cheap way to bring out the best.   Painting the inside of a home a neutral color helps appeal to more buyers. 3.  Fix small repairs:  If your home has some small repairs that can be fixed then do it.  You want to present your home in as good of condition as possible and some buyers will be turned off by a house if there are a lot of little things wrong.  Buyers can b...

Crying children in public is something that I truly understand is unavoidable!  Even with their best efforts, parents are not always able to control their children and toddlers and the inevitable happens. What I question is why do parents take their children to concerts, movies, theatrical performances and the like where "quiet" is the norm for all patrons.  Wouldn't a night out with the children left at home with a babysitter be better?  Because if the child isn't enjoying the moment, the the parent isn't going to either and and neither will anyone else.     I just left a performance of Cirque du Soliel's "Kooza" in St. Petersburg, FL which I would love to say was a wonderful experience and the show was very good!   The approximately 2 year old crying in front of us (apparently clowns ...
