One of Sarasota's Best Burger Joints: The Frosted Mug Let me start off by saying that The Frosted Mug isn't located directly in Sarasota, it is in Venice, which is only a short drive south, and it is in the county. This Venice establishment was one of the first businesses built on Tamiami Trail, and has been in continuous operation since 1957. When you go to this cash only establishment, you can choose to sit outside and wave to those driving south on Tamiami Trail, or you can sit inside and check out all of the memorabilia on the walls. So what does one order when they go to The Frosted Mug? Some patron favorites include the Big Buc Burger, Chili Burger, Reuben Dog, or the Famous Philly. One of my favorite meals is the Cheese Burger in Paradise, with bleu cheese and a side of sweet pot...

Water Saving Tips -  Without water life on earth would be impossible, let us work together and conserve water.     1. Take shorter showers - take showers rather than baths. 2. Collect the cold water that comes out of the faucet, tap or shower while waiting for the hot water, use it to water plants. 3. Turn the faucet/tap off while you are brushing your teeth, shaving, washing your hands, doing dishes & etc. 4.  Wash full loads of laundry or dishes. 5. Wash vehicles with a bucket, sponge and hose with a shut-off valve.  6.

Florida The Alligator and The Bird After the picnic, we decided to go for a walk around the Maxine Barrit Park (Free Admission) and enjoyed some of the most beautiful gulf views on Venice Island.  While my husband and I were walking on the trails, we saw an alligator with a bird in his mouth resting on the bank of the lake.

 Every Home Must Have - LOVE I received this email from a special friend that I had never met before and would like to share it with others. A woman came out of her house and saw three old men with long white beards sitting in her front yard. She did not recognize them, she said " I don't think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come in and have something to eat."   "Is the man of the house home?"   "No", she replied. "He's out." "Then we cannot come in", they replied. In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happened. "Go tell them I am home and invite them in!" The woman went out and invited the men in. "We do not go into a House together," they replied. "Why is that?" she asked. One of the old man explained: "His name is Wealth," he said pointing one o...
