German cooking in Treasure Island, Cucumber salad with a twist I love to cook and people always want my "recipe" well, I do not have recipes.  Usually I do not even know what I cook till I get to the store, look around and buy what looks appealing. So, the other day I saw cucumbers and I LOVE cucumber salad in all different forms. Today we will add Mango to the mix. It takes about 10 minutes to make a salad for 4 people and it is really easy and no big mess to clean up.           Please do not expect the exact measurements or exact time or exact degrees in my recipes. Cooking is all about being creative and unique, I will give you the basic and you make it your own fabulous creation. Make sure you have 2 or 3 cucumbers, a Mango, fresh ginger, Salt, Pepper, Sugar, Oil, Dill, White Vinega...

Treasure Island Florida is a vacationers paradise and it sure doesn't get any better than here! Powder white sand and blue skies together with the sparkling surf of the Gulf of Mexico! Who wouldn't love to live or vacation here? I was at the Bilmar Resort on Treasure Island today checking out a listing for a client and took these photos. My client will be down next week to see this lovely condo. From the back of the Bilmar you can see the surf in the distance, past the pristine beach. Thinking of purchasing an investment or vacation condo? Think Pinellas County! From the sparkling shores of Clearwater Beach down to Treasure Island and the St Petersburg Beaches, you just can't find a more beautiful place!

Yard Sale on Paradise Island in Treasure Island. In November of each year Paradise Island has a huge yard sale. All the house, condos and townhomes on Paradise are invited to participate. It is huge and so much fun. I am always looking forward and when I see all the homeowners sitting in their yard selling "STUFF" my first thought is "I should also be sitting in my yard and selling stuff instead of buying more. This Yard sale in Paradise Island is the perfect opportunity to clean out your garage but by then time I realize this, it is too late (happens every year) Well, not this year, I just started a box with "Stuff" for the yard sale and I am prepared to part with it at the next Paradise Island yard Sale. It will be great to finally have some room in my garage again, maybe I can actual...

Yes, we only have one grocery store in Treasure Island and this is Publix on the corner of 104th Ave and Gulf Blvd but we also have 2 Sweet bays and another Publix within 5 minutes from Treasure Island and another Publix on St. Pete beach.

Have you ever been to Hong Kong? or What is the definition of a High Rise building? The other day I showed a waterfront condo at Mansion by the Sea in Treasure Island and the buyer said, "OH, I did not realize it was a high-rise building"       It took me a second to relpy because everytime someone mentions Highrise I think of Hong Kong where you are in a jungle of high rise building and I mean high rise.         Mansion by the Sea in Treasure Island                                                       Hong Kong

What do you do to get your positive energy back? Bodysurfing in Treasure Island. I had one of these days yesterday, trapped in the office all day long, 3 contracts falling apart, nobody returning my phone calls, appointments not showing up on time, every e mail I opened had more bad news............. you know what I mean. At about 4 pm I have had it and decided to call it a day and go home. As you can imagine, I was in a really bad mood and ready to bit someone's head off.  So, now what to do? How do you snap out of this mood? Go shopping? Get drunk? Walk on the beach? Complain to a good friend?  I remembered that I live in Treasure Island and that we have beautiful beaches and that I am going for a long and relaxing swim, this usually takes my mind off things and relaxes me. (But had a...
