An Up to the Minute Snippet

Happy Thursday to all — I actually had to think about what day it was since the days since Irma hit are a blur and have been running together.  I will not take up much of your time but I did want to give you an update about the aftermath of Irma since the media has moved on to other ...

IRMA UPDATE –  IMPORTANT Hi, again — boy it has been a long time since I have written two snippets in a row but I have been asked to by several folks so here goes. Things are getting better here BUT Naples still has a long way to go to recover from Hurricane Irma. 1.  Collier County is on a ... Read More »

Hi, everyone.  I know you’ve been waiting to hear from me but lack of power was a HUGE issue until it finally returned late yesterday afternoon.  The internet has also been a little weird…which is understandable considering this storm we just went through.  Hurricane Irma was a monster — if anyone tells you it was not as not here.  It ...

Happy day after the big eclipse, everyone.  After all the media hype, the skies in Naples just became a little dim….it was a little spooky…but really no drama.  I am glad the eclipse happened yesterday and not today, since we are now getting some “much needed rain” (I am kidding) to settle the mud.  SW Florida is setting all sorts ...

Hi, everyone — I hope you have all had a great summer season so far. Bob and I certainly are. It is SO nice to finally have time to spend some terrific time with friends who live in Naples full time like we do. By the way, when many of you left for your summer homes, Collier County was in ...

Hi, everyone. Happy Friday & Happy President’s Day Weekend! It has been an incredibly busy time since I last wrote a “Greetings.” It seems like every night and every day is taken up with one event or another. Just within the last week, we have attended three wonderful events — a gala for the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute to introduce ... Read More »

Hi, everyone — Happy New Year. I have not been in touch with you for a while for a few reasons. One is computer issues which I have explained to you in the past. The MacBook on which I am typing this is dying a very slow death — I see that spinning beach ball on a regular basis. SO, ... Read More »

Hi, everyone. Happy Thanksgiving weekend. From some of the emails I have received, it sounds like a few of you thought I had fallen off the planet. Not true. BUT since I last wrote a “Greetings from Paradise,” I (we…Bob too) have been totally overwhelmed with this crazy election season….especially since we were quite involved with the whole thing. After ... Read More »

Happy Friday to all. Here is the latest from Naples on Hurricane Matthew. ALL of the hotel rooms in the area remain booked. It seems that we have had very little impact from Matthew. There was some rain overnight….the streets are dry at the moment. We did not even put our shutters down. It is breezy right now but nothing ... Read More »
