[Bait and Switch] What is wrong with KW doctors and their disregard for patients. On June 29 after waiting for 6 weeks for an appointment with Dr Balestra at her White Street office I was seen by an “assistant” because the doctor was on vacation. No one told me.
Last Tuesday, I had an appointment with Dr Carabin in Luani Plaza in KW and was seen by an “assistant” because the doctor was out of town. No one told me.
I didn’t want to see an assistant who isn’t even a nurse. I’ve been to other doctors for my problems and needed a specialist, that’s why I made the appointments with those two quacks, after being told they were specialists. Specialists in bilking Medicare.

[Prescribed Burns] The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service plans to conduct a prescribed burn within the National Key Deer Refuge on Big Pine Key during the week of October 8th, 2023 (weather conditions permitting).

[Friday Joke] A Mormon was seated next to an Irishman on a flight from London to the US. After the plane was airborne, drink orders were taken. The Irishman asked for a whiskey, which was promptly brought and placed before him. The flight attendant then asked the Mormon if he would like a drink. He replied in disgust, “I’d rather be savagely raped by a dozen whores than let liquor touch my lips.”
The Irishman then handed his drink back to the attendant and said, “Me, too, I didn’t know we had a choice.”

[Our Reef Is Doomed] Coral researchers see ‘mass mortality’ amid Florida Reef bleaching crisis. Iconic elkhorn and staghorn corals took the heaviest losses, and researchers say they are at risk of becoming “functionally extinct” in the Florida Reef. Link
[Bigot Report] If you haven’t noticed the major corporate sponsors are advertising their products and services to black customers. Now if that’s their intention, can anyone explain to me why a business would want their target audience limited to only 13% of the population, of which 71% are on Government subsidies?  And what’s so good about being black? I’m not an athlete or a rap artist, don’t drink Ripple, hang out with my Homies or wear my pants falling off; and don’t talk like a slave. Look what happened to Bud Light when they thought it was cool to advertise to the transvestites.

When pigs fly.

[Botox] Last night on Channel 5 the news lady said Botox use in Miami is up almost 40% over last year. That’s raising a lot of eyebrows!
[Ban Tourism] What happened to free day trips? “Florida Keys getaways. $2.50 per person, minimum up to $8 from key largo to Key West parks, kayak areas.” It’s a bunch of crap, from money grabbing people.
[Raccoon Heaven] Man being happy for feeding fat raccoons. Video
[Movie Review] “Forgotten Love”. I saw a really good Polish movie last night called “Forgotten Love”.   Yes, it’s kind of a chick flick, but I thought you would like it as it is set in the early 1920’s Poland. The acting, costuming, Polish farm village, etc is outstanding.  Very well-done movie with outstanding background. Good story too. Trailer. Video

Remember when women were women and not assembled from enhanced parts?

[Saint Fiacra] He is the patron of growers of vegetables and medicinal plants, and gardeners in general, including ploughboys.
[Movies] Future phone screens will be holographic and able to project any size screen on any surface. There will be no more desktop computers.

How Chihuahuas see themselves when the doorbell rings.

[Alternative Search Engines] When we talk about search engines, we instantly think of Google. But did you know there are lots of alternative search engines out there with just as much to offer? Link

[Eggs] When a girl is born into this world she has all the eggs she’ll ever have. Girls don’t keep producing eggs like chickens do. What you are born with is all you’ll ever have.

[Dress Code] Congressman should dress in a suit and ties. Not out of any fashion sense, but as respect for the highest offices in the land. It’s a shame how our country is degenerating. I keep thinking of Gibbon’s Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.
It’s comparable to military tradition where you salute the uniform, not the man.
Ukraine’s fight is our fight.
[Masses Attract] “Put two ships to sea without wing or tide and they will come together. Throw two planets into space, and they will fall one on the other. Place two enemies in the midst of a crowd, and they will inevitably meet; it is a fatality, a question of time; that is all.” ~Jules Vern 1905
What attracts bodies to one another? Gravitational forces create an attraction between every two objects or particles, drawing them towards each other. Gravity has no repulsive nature; it only attracts objects. The force of gravity is impacted by two factors: distance and mass.
[Movies] Stop showing future spaceships with wings. In the future we will have overcome gravity and no longer need winged flight to escape earth’s gravity. A future power source will allow any shaped craft to reach space.
[Friday Joke] A man is in a bar talking to his friend. ‘Last night, while I was out drinking, a burglar broke into my house. Did he get anything? asks his friend.
‘Yes,’ says the man. ‘A broken jaw, two teeth knocked out. My wife thought it was me coming home drunk.’
