It's a Swamp! No, It's the Everglades.

August 30, 2019

Southern Florida is filled with National Parks. There is Big Cypress in Ochopee; Biscayne in Miami, Key Biscayne and Homestead; Dry Tortugas in Key West; and the Everglades in Miami, Naples and Homestead. Although it is August and Florida is hot and humid this time of year, I found myself at Big Cypress and the Everglades.


Originally, when I thought of Southern Florida National Parks, I thought of swamps. Lots of swamp land with not much else to see or take in. Well, little did I realize how much life was there. In fact, this part of Florida is full of life.

If you are lucky, you may catch a glimpse of a manatee, an American crocodile, American alligator, a Florida panther and one of the many species of amphibians, birds, fish and the list goes on. There is so much to see and experience here than first meets the eye. There are trails and roads where much of this area can be explored. You can kayak and even camp here too.

At one of the park stops, a National Park Service ranger mentioned how the Everglades was not a traditional National Park. It is not like the Grand Canyon or Yellowstone where it is apparent, with one step inside the park, why it's a National Park. Instead, the Everglades is a park that protects an ecosystem, an ecosystem that is so unique and so vast.


Keeping this in mind and after gaining a better understanding of this diverse area, I began to understand how it was much more than "just" a swamp. Instead, it allowed plants, animals, insects, etc. to exist in a way that is quite special. I'll admit, visiting this area in August may not have been the most ideal time, but if you come armed with sunscreen and bug repellent, you will be in store for a special experience.

The Invasion of the Brit Tabloid

October 22, 2020

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!

Magical Hermès

October 06, 2020

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.

My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.
