[New Year’s Eve Curfew] Key West heads toward 10 p.m. New Year’s Eve curfew due to COVID-19 and over the entire New Year’s Eve weekend. No vote was taken on the curfew but Mayor Teri Johnston is weighing using her emergency authority to impose the curfew order immediately. She said she is also open to holding a special city commission meeting next week if commissioners want to vote on an emergency ordinance themselves. Link
Biodiesel usage not booming in the Keys. Marathon Biodiesel collects used vegetable oil from restaurants and processes it into biodiesel, a biodegradable, non-toxic, environmentally-friendly fuel for diesel engines. Biodiesel is a replacement or supplement for diesel fuel. It creates 80% less carbon dioxide and 100% less sulfur than diesel fuel.


Ladies, if a man says he will fix it, he will. There is no need to remind him every 6 months about it.

[Prostate Cancer Hope] I had TURP surgery, trans-sectional uretha resection prostate, in ‘09. Basically a roto rooting of uretha thru prostate area. They found some cancer cells in scrapings from surgery. That was Nov ‘09, summer August ‘10 had prosectomy and had prostate removed. In hindsight, not bad. I had catheter in for 7-10 days, you will have to find shoes to match your bag! Takes awhile for ability to get a hard on, depends on how many nerves get removed w/prostate. Being an old man did not present much of a problem. Last time I had one the ol lady told me to wash it while the wrinkles were out of it. I would say overall more discomfort at times then pain. I have heard that radiation of prostate area works but there is a chance of destroying sphincter valve, you do not want to go there. Hope this helps you out. Go for it. I had family history of prostate cancer, grandfather and father died with it, not from it. Unlike Covid, I was also on left side of scale around stage two I believe. Recovery is not bad at all.



Tan lines from 2020.

[“American news”] Why they show so much “junk” as the poster called it is because that’s what you want. If they showed real news you wouldn’t watch it. You only think you would. When Ted Turner started CNN, he had real news even though his politics are very conservative. CNN was very fair. But people stopped watching it in favor of more sensational and not quite as accurate news sources. If you want real news visit BBC America and Al Jazeera. Neither one has an axe to grind. Link

[Decorations] It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas as First Lady Melania Trump unveils her patriotic themed holiday decor at the White House. Video

[Friday Joke] A guy kills a Key deer, brings it home and cooks it for dinner, but does not tell his family what it is. At the table he says, “I’ll give you a clue, it’s what my wife calls me sometimes.”

Almost immediately, one of his brothers yells, “Don’t eat it! It’s a stupid a**hole!”


[Clam Candy] And this is why we’re having a pandemic.

[Hot Honey Martini] Fill shaker with ice, gently pour in parts, stir contents for 3.865 seconds, strain into chilled martini glass, add one freaking olive only (if you like onions…shoot yourself). Hold only the stem to saver the taste and keep the chill. Lick the drops out of the bottom. Order 17 more and forget that broad next to you! Hand drivers license to bartender. Enjoy.

[Commercial Space] Wow, triple net leases (where the owner/landlord takes all the money and the renter/leasee pays for everything) have hit rock bottom in Key West. The norm of collecting $25, 30,000 monthly has now been lowered to $12 to 15,000 and they’re still vacant. With a SRX liquor license to boot. Long, long time for recovery.
[News] If you want to read what’s happening in the USA, watch news sources from Australia (Sky) and New Zealand. Britain’s Guardian helps with a wider presentation of politics and crime, but other British sources come closer to the truth. American news media has very little real news, fake news, professional sports, and actors.
