As she steps down now from the command post she has served so valiantly for two years, she leaves a trail of victories unprecedented in Beach Leaseholder Association history. She beat the County Commissioners down when they tried to push a 25 percent lease fee increase through this year. She challenged the head engineer at Gulf Power to ride down Ariola Drive at night with her when he kept insisting the street lights were burning there. Margaret knew the street stayed dark for many months after the hurricane. She protects the dunes, forms committees to make owners clean up debris at their homes, gets signs refurbished, weeds cut, sea oats planted. She brings senators, firemen, policemen and any other dignitaries she can capture to speak at the Leaseholder meetings. She initiated the Leave Only Your Footprints Please campaign for which the leaseholders were honored with an award from the Clean Community Commission. She urged the entry of a float in the first ever Mardi Gras parade on the beach. She has flung herself wholeheartedly into every issue pertinent to the good life on Pensacola Beach. Like taxes. Margaret has appeared before Committees, written and telephoned Senators, invaded the tax collectors and property appraisers officesover and over and over again. She has picked up the remnants of the tax battle, hoping to piece them together into a whole cloth of fair taxation for the residents of this beach. What kind of person is this who will labor at her big desk most of the night just to prepare a report on the needs and grievances of beach residents to the SRIA? She probably does not even glance at the plaque hanging on the wall which commends her as the Woman of the Year on Pensacola Beach. She is much too busy to give herself a pat on the back for all she has done for her friends, her neighbors, the 350 members of the Association and the hundreds of others who do not even know her. So, we will do that for herhere and now. We will tell you that Margaret is a warm and caring person, no matter how angrily determined she may be to right a wrong, she always tempers her remarks with a ready smile. The better she becomes known the more respect she gains. Her indomitable will, her tenacity, her efficiency and her classic ability for leadership may strike terror into the hearts of Florida politicians and she may tackle them with vehemence but always with that smile. We congratulate her for her past victories, and we know that while she will no longer serve as president of the Leaseholders and Residents Association, she will not dessert the taxation battlefield. So for the sake of her futureand ourswe say Go get em, Maggie! Pensacola Beach American Legions Tom Fitzgerald, left, congratulates Ray Hood, winner of the October 19 Putt Putt Outing. Ray, who had the lowest score, donated his winnings back to the Post which uses the event proceeds to support Christmas for veterans in nursing homes and other charitable campaigns. The Krewe du YaYas hopes their signature color goes from pink to the green at the November 16 Pedal Pub Crawl fundraiser on Pensacola Beach. Registration is at 10 a.m. at the Sandshaker. Entry fee is $20 and includes lunch plus a grand prize Beach weekend drawing ticket. The Grill at 11, then lunch at Bamboo Willies at 12:45, over to Captn Fun at 2:15, then on to Shaggys the Sandshaker at 5 p.m. for an afterparty with the band Class X.

Christine Bunkie Hewerdine was a late recruit. There you have it. Case solved. What will they be up to next? CHAMPAGNE TOASTBeach residents Mike and Susi Mardis have been holding hands for over four decades. The fun loving couple celebrated their forty-third wedding anniversary last month. HEY TEACHDoes teaching middle schoolers all day develop your patience or hone your ability to bluff? Toots Humphrey is one of the Beachs winningest poker playing divas. Her folks, Gary and Maureen, are co-owners of Paddy OLearys, so its not unusual to see her at the Irish pub. But, she has a real job in Pensacola and is darn good at it. Humphrey was named Ferry Pass Middle School Teacher of the Year. Congrats. SOCIAL SCHEDULEGena Raymon, the Beachs Sidewalk Social Director, gathered her good time gang to launch Tim Morgan into the Nifty Sixties. Morgans sixtieth birthday was October 27. His fans and friends partied with him at the Sabine Sandbar. WINNERSMonika Cosson was dressed as an Egyptian Black Cat at the Wrecks Costume Contest, October 28. She was part of the winning trio that included Morrie Drees and Monica McVay. There was no off-key meowing Cossons the Beach Church Choir Director. The Trivia Master got down and dirty with the last question. It was a rather pedestrian inquiry for those who were in the know: How do you get Joes Feet or Joes Toes? Any self-respecting Wooly Booger would have a permanent case of Joes Feet by Labor Day and with proper care and a pair of real shoes, it might fade by Christmas. Real shoes were usually met with scorn and sufficient footwear for almost any island establishment. The Wooly Booger and Trivia Winner Craig Barrow is contracted by going barefoot in the old Dirty Joes. Correct, CB. He notes that establishment is now The Break. Can you get Break Feet? Or Broken Toes? Or is there a no shirt, no shoes, no service rule? If there were rules at Dirty Joes about wearing shoes or shirts, they were ignored. The shirtless and barefooted were never denied service. Although the Trivia Master is assured that the proprietor, Jack White, took spotless, those who frequented with a special sooty coating on the bottom of their feet. Perhaps they were dragging the grime into the Wooly Booger watering hole from their previous travels. Chuck Steele says Getting Joes Toes is one of the Islands self-correcting errors, like feeding seagulls. Lady Kim Schmitz of the Trivia Roundtable ascended Dune Olympus and returned with the words from the Wise One, In the late 60s and 70s, when you went into Dirty Joes barefoot youd come out and your feet would be black, hence Joes Feet or Joes Toes. And Wednesday nights would be the worst night because it was free draft beer for the ladies. Draft beer would be all The foot blackening continued into the next decades as well. The free draft beer did, too. The pool tables, juke box, cut-offs, steel tipped darts and Crown Royal bags for purses are comical memories from a host of Dirty Joes faithful who waxed poetic to the TM. Kathy Christoff has feet but no Joes Toes. She has no shirt, either. She felt like Joes Toes were something like athletes foot and should be avoided at all costs. Shirtless, still, KC.

Sun: Live Music 5 to 7 p.m. Perfect way to wrap up your weekend A quiet time was established by the Santa Rosa Island Author ity at their Full Board meeting November 6. In response to a request from Escambia County to revisit the Noise Ordinance for Pensacola Beach, a recommendation for limiting noises to no more than 65 decibels during the day and 55 decibels from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. outside of the core area passed unanimously. The previous recommendation used a decibel measurement in the Core Area and a standard of reasonableness in the residential area. The County did not approve of the two standards of measurement. Residents along Ariola Drive have long been plagued by loud music emanating from rental houses. In Escambia County, the Noise Abatement Ordinance provides for a standard of rea sonableness that some Pensacola Beach residents favored. We have two wedding houses in our neighborhood, said Beach resident Terry Preston. My preference would be a standard of reasonableness, but I can support the decibel levels of 65 and 55. Jim Leslie, who lives on Ariola Drive, preferred a standard of reasonableness as well, but asked the SRIA Board to supply the deputies with more than one decibel meter. I dont know why noise can be louder at my beach house as compared to someone living in East Hill. There is no reason to have loud music in residential areas of the Beach at night, he said. Please buy more than one decibel meter. When we call the deputies and say we have a noise complaint, the officer arrives without a decibel meter. That does not help the situation. The Noise Ordinance in the Core Area, which includes the beachs business and entertainment areas, remains unchanged. Noise should not exceed 70 deci bels, day or night. The Board also voted fa vorably to extend the landscape project to include an additional $500,000 worth of palms along Via de Luna from Avenida 23 has 1,352 cabbage palms and 547 pindo palms being planted from Avenida 10 to Avenida 23. The second phase will add 1,600 cabbage palms and 800 pindo palms to the landscaping project. Installation will take approximately 120 days. The Beachs landscape project is financed by the Island Beautification Fund, which is funded by excess lease fees paid Event promoters who re quest sponsorship money from the Santa Rosa Island Authority will have a new 8 page applica tion to complete which requires an extensive post event report a request limit of $2,500 and a exceed that limit. After discussion and two failed motions, the Board approved a limit of $7,500 with the standard four approving board members to grant an increased amount. Board Member Dave Pavlock, who was the lone dissenting vote, said, If we are exceeding our stated policy, I feel there must be a good reason to do so and there must be a super majority to approve that exception. Director of Administration Robbie Schrock alerted the Board that a request for a $200,000 sponsorship will be coming before the board next. A proposed digital billboard sign to replace the across-the-road banners went dark. The Pensacola Beach Boulevard banner poles will be dismantled as part of the new access road construction. The Board requested input from the business community regarding a sign to display event information. Pensacola Beach Chamber President Nicole Stacey reported that out of the forty responding businesses, over half would use the digital sign to promote events, but none were willing to pay $800 per week to do so. Of the respondents only seven had used the banner system. The SRIA board decided that there was not enough interest in the new sign to justify the anticipated cost of more than $150,000. The time may come when we may need this, said Pavlock. Let the banners go away, and the businesses can come to us. Director of Developmental Services Paolo Ghio reported that there were three new resi dential construction projects on will be beginning some roof maintenance and repair. Guests at Flounders will have a new waterfront seating area complete Ghio gave the Board good news about the Visitors Information Center. I received the development order for the Center, said Ghio. Plans are ready to go. We can move into the next phase. The Board approved the timeline for advertising Request for Proposals and a bid opening date of December 6. We want to get this project on track, said SRIA Executive Director Buck Lee. We need to get the construction complete prior to the beginning of our summer tourist season. During the Board Members Forum, Fred Gant asked staff for an update on the Beach Renourishment projects. Director Lee responded that the SRIA has invested $250,000 in obtaining permits which do not expire for cials in Perdido Key and Navarre Beach to share the $3 million cost of mobilization. If all three do our renourishment together then we can share the cost of the barge, one million a piece, said Lee. Saves everybody money.

We had a great idea to dress as blue angels, complete with blue wings. One of the special joys of being an SOB is that no one ever knows what we might do. and were not telling! If you arent able to attend a parade celebrating our Nations veterans, then there are many other ways you can choose to show your appreciation. There is a constant need for volunteers to just share a few minutes of time in helping to provide packages, donating supplies, offering a ride to a disabled veteran who doesnt have transportation, buying groceries and delivering them to a home-bound veteran, or donating money to charitable organizations helping Veterans how much goes directly to helping). The list is endless so there is no excuse for not making every Veteran feel the love, gratitude and appreciation for their defending our freedom. The next big Event will be the Wooly Booger Social Clubs Kiss the Hurricane Season Goodbye Bawl which is scheduled for November 16. The Bawl will take place at Paradise Bar and Grill at 3 p.m. Queen Shugah Jayne Drees Redmond has done a spectacular job this year in keeping the storms from our beloved Island. Mark your calendar now so you can show your love and appreciation for her hard work. This is the only Bawl where the current reigning Queen is eager to relinquish her crown. Its a tough job. As Queen Shugah Jaynes reign ends, she will be passing her very powerful crown to the next Queen Shugah. This particular crown has been worn by many previous Queens, so it is believed to have acquired some powerful mojo. Each succeeding Queen Shugah will need as much power as she can get; especially in light of the previous seasons weve survived without any raging storms. This job just gets harder and harder and our Queen Shugahs need all of us to believe in and provide whatever support our Queen requires to accomplish her mission. So, step up, show up, and pledge your allegiance and loyalty to the one who next accepts this daunting mission. You do not want to be the one responsible for breaking this chain of power thus allowing a potentially devastating hurricane to penetrate our defense. You are either with us or against us. I believe tarring and feathering is an acceptable punishment for such dissenters and those who scoff and say its all a bunch of nonsense. Keep in mind, it is not too late to actually have the Tar Bawl suggested and discussed by many islanders during the summer of tar that caused nearly as much devastation than the most intense hurricanes. So, be there or be blamed.. and dont say I didnt warn you. Besides all the above, this Bawl is the best event of the entire year, because it is a huge relief to Kiss the Hurricane Season Goodbye since its the biggest threat to our homes and island. The weather is usually great and its the time of year for islanders to enjoy paradise without all the summer visitors. Each reigning Queen Shugah has contributed and established her own powerful tradition in such fun ways. In no particular order of succession, I created the Keep the Hurricanes Away this Season Bawl and Q.S. Deb Friedman chose the fun of The Hurricane Dart of each named hurricane of her reign. Q.S. Shelley had a very cool Wooly Booger Altar built allowing us to provide offerings, which now have to be glued because some have already disappeared. I can only hope whoever is responsible needed those powerful objects more than we do. Q.S. Christine Bunkie Hewerdine commissioned a very powerful Staff of Power (created by Krewe of Nereids King Nasty John Thomas). She also chose the Sun as her talisman. Queen Jayne created her Center of Power by using a giant Compass as her focus, then added smaller powerful objects around its outer circle. She has completed her mission and accomplished our know, at times she was as scared witless.) The Council of Queen Shugahs has convened, nominated, discussed and by majority vote a new Queen Shugah has been chosen with special regard. She will have a hard task ahead of her and will need every islander and every person who loves this island, regardless of your residence, to be loyal, provide support and most of all, believe. I promised a very special recipe this week that is guaranteed to satisfy any Veterans discerning seafood taste. The recipe came about when I mentioned that I always save the skins of my baked potatoes. I love potato skins but Bill doesnt so he peels his away. I also love the inside of the skins so I never have a lot of potato left. Adding Bills left-over potatoes to my potato skin creates the perfect amount for me. Usually I just add a bit of sour cream to the leftover potato, then top it with shredded cheese and bacon bits, then broil until cheese is melted and bacon bits are nicely crisp. If like me, you prefer using leftovers for this recipe, then we have to bake potatoes twice. But its worth it. So, lets cook.. Seafood Stuffed Potato 4 lg. baking potatoes, already cooked or left over Cup butter Cup sour cream (more if needed for desired consistency) 1 Pound fresh crab meat 1 Tsp. Salt I Tbsp. Tony Cacheres Cajun (original) seasoning ion 1 Cup shredded cheddar cheese (or your choice) 1 Cup bacon bits Slice potatoes length-wise (unless using leftovers) and scoop out center of potatoes. Whip (or beat) the potatoes adding sour cream and butter until ings and onion to potato mixture. Fill potato skins and bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove from oven, top with cheese and bacon bits. Place under oven broiler, keeping close watch, until bubbly and lightly crisp. Add your favorite bread and a nice salad for the perfect meal! Serves 4. Enjoy, share and dont forget to thank a Veteran. Make every day Veterans Day! See ya at the Wooly Booger Bawl and in the kitchen....

PAGE 8 Island Times November 12, 2013 The Lizzards Tongue... It all started innocently enough. After a day of running errands, I was greeted by a very lightweight box adorned with that familiar label -Amazon -and it was addressed to me. My heart skipped a beat as I thought it was possibly a late birthday present or a miraculous delivery of a sewing notion that I had ordered within the past six hours. So while juggling dry cleaning and a bag of groceries, I carried the package inside the house thinking me. Tossing the perfectly pressed shirts and pants over the banister and setting the frozen foods on the stairway, I ripped open the box to packing slip. Total disappointment was only just the beginning. I yelled over the blasting music to the Kid to come get his clean clothes before they were a crumpled mess as the plastic wrap performed its own law of dog hair attraction. Dejected and disheartened, I carried my slightly melted frozen entrees and rationalized everything would cook faster because it was kind of defrosted. While the oven pre-heated to 400 degrees, I sent out a family text message: "Did anyone order Bar paternal grandparents, Shouxnana and Jefe. They were both a negative. Then his grand Aunt Dux was no. His parents were both "not I." His cousin, the Kid, in his wiseacre way reminded me that I would have known if it were him or the Colonel because our Amazon account is tied into my credit card. True, but Calculating that I had a solid 30 minutes to solve this mysterious delivery, I logged into my Amazon account and searched for the toy. "Only 1 left!" The words jumped out at me even as I could hear the oven beeping, signaling me it was time to get cooking. Now, I was its sender. There was a recipient, age 18 months to 4 years, waiting for this colorful piece of Sesame Street hard plastic made in China and wrapped in soft plastic with a warning: Bag may cause suffocation! Please remove and discard! After answering a half dozen questions via an electronic form that I was sure would reduce my wait time, I requested that Amacall me within 5 minutes. That would give me enough time to get the Asian spring rolls in the oven and start the rice. Just as I was clicking the cook button on the rice cooker, my iPhone rang and the automated voice of Amazon customer service was on the other end informing me that my call would be answered in the order it was received. I put my phone on speaker and went about my dinner preparations. I set the table with our every day dishes and even found chopsticks from three different Asian countries, each representing a different WestPac deployment from in the US Marine Corps: Thailand, Korea, and Japan. Drifting off in my thoughts as each set had a story behind it, I was quickly brought back to reality with Connie Computer Voice reminding me that my call would be answered in the order it was received. A quick glance at the oven timer told me that I had 15 minutes to solve the mystery and serve dinner. I wrestled my wok like pan from the top of the refrigerator, grabbed the marinated chicken concoction for Lettuce Wraps, heated up a skillet and tossed in the beef and broccoli. Before I knew it, I was dingwarning, placing edamame in the steamer basket on top of the rice, sauces (soy, Tabasco soy, low-sodium soy, ponzu, and sweet and sour) were on the table, and still listening to the most annoying voice tell me that my call will be answered in the order in which it was received. My percent. This was not good. Before I served dinner, I found my charger and plugged in my phone hiding it underneath the table but on an empty chair as we have a no cell phone policy at the dinner table. The edamame took the hit for my actions, slightly over steamed; and I am very sure breaking a house rule will come back to haunt me some day, but I was more the end, dinner was delicious and Connie only interrupted a dozen times with her message. Eventually, after 85 minutes on hold, two glasses of wine, and up to my elbows in Dawn dish soap bubbles, I heard the voice of a live customer service rep. Jason, howrecord of this order and tells me to a return to sender. He is truly sorry for the inconvenience. I wanted to yell at the guy "Hey Jason, Halloween is over. Take off your mask and look into who sent this. Orders But maybe they do. Out of Amazon, probably one I should have slept on before hitting send, and immediately got a response that it was from a person by the name of Candy S., better known as my sister. So I called her and let her set Amazon straight. Last I heard they were sending her a return label. And just when I thought the mystery was solved, I received an email from the third party company that sold the toy on Amazon. It but a person by the name of Alicia intended recipient. As if that was news to me. Until next time....

Melanie Waite, great ghost story raconteur and protector of turtle nests, was the guest speaker. She entertained the members while they lunched on fare catered by Lillos. The Pensacola Beach Womans Club welcomes new members and prospective members to join them. In addition to monthly meetings, the Club participates in parades and supports civic events year round. As is the tradition, the November meeting will be a pot luck luncheon with a Thanksgiving theme. Morrie Drees will prepare turkeys and members should bring accompanying side dishes. The November meeting will be Thursday, November 21 at the Beach Churchs Randle Hall beginning at 11 a.m. Ladies really show off their fanciest Thanksgiving delectable dishes, said Sundstrom. Our Thanksgiving meeting is always very precious since this is a very special time to share with friends and family. Anyone who is interested in attending the meeting, should contact Sundstrom at 850-436-2079. Pensacola Beach Womans Club toasts the October birthday celebrants at their October 17 meeting. Birthday girls are (back row, L to R) Melba Argentine, Evelyn Wright, Kathi Mitchell (guest), Davina Lecaroz, Frankie Roy, Marilyn Powitzky and Bunny Branan.

A: A solid state drive (also known as an SSD) is the newest technology for storing data in a computer. The unique thing about the SSD is that is has no moving parts. All of the computer programs and user documents are stored electronically in cells on interconnected memory chips inside the computer. A traditional hard disk drive (also know as an HDD) stores information on circular platters that are constantly spinning. Computers that are likely to have SSD drives include the Mac Air notebook, Windows-based Ultrabooks, and tablets. The trathose slim, lightweight devices. Having no moving parts can provide some significant advantages, but at large price. The SSD technology allows the computer to start up faster and process information faster. As SSD designs become smaller and smaller, the computers size and weight can be reduced. The risk of equipment failure is reduced if the computer is in a harsh environment or is dropped. The price of an SSD is currently about six times the price of an HDD. If you purchase a one-terabyte disk (1TB), you will pay about $100 for the HDD and about $600 for the SSD. A Windows laptop only costs about $500 with the HDD installed. To compensate for the high cost, SSDs with much lower storage capacity are put in the laptops and tablets. So, the user of the equipment can store much less data than with an HDD. The SSD is subject to failure only if the cells burn out from overuse. That should be a rare event, but if the SSD does fail, the repair will be very expensive. An extended warranty might be a good idea. This article was provided by The Stukey Group.

More than that theyre winning races. He looks great, she looks great and her serious back problems are being mitigated. These are not young people. These are people who have busy schedules. How did they do it and what are they doing? Well get back to them at the end of this article. Sooner or later most of us decide we want a change. Maybe its time for a new car, or new clothes or we want different colors in the rooms of our houses. Sometimes were bored, exactly, but we want something different. Maybe what we really want is to change ourselves. I arrived at that point 13 years ago when I took up triathlon. It was my way to try something new, to get moving again, to break some bad habits and to start being an athlete again. Maybe you feel its time for a personal change. Its been said that the hardstep out the back door. The hardest part about change, especially physically, is deciding to change. You have to determine You have to realize youre not going to accept the way things are and you have to (therefore) raise your personal bar. So you draw a figurative line in the sand since youre not going to take it any longer and you determine youre going to get in shape. Do you just go out and run 26.2 miles (the marathon distance)? Or decide youre going to run an Ironman triathlon (140.6 miles)? If you try to do either of those activities immediately, youll hurt yourself. Being hurt is absolutely no fun and more often than not, you get discouraged and you quit doing whatever hurt you. Soon youll be back in front of the television with a doughnut, a bag of chips and a large soft drink. So, how do you start? You can get great results, get in shape and be an athlete by WALKING! Thats not hard, you think. Exactly! Its not hard, but, you have to get out there and do it and you have to be consistent. Thats the hard part. First you decide youre going to get off your backside, then for you and stick to it. Get a pair of walking shoes (there are many brands), not running shoes. If with you, thats great if thats for you. Start with a distance that is right for you that might be a mile or even two miles. When you feel stronger, increase your will pick up and fast walking can increase your heart rate and your breathing patterns. Feels good, doesnt it? You can vary it to keep it interesting and not get bored. You can walk up hills (the Sikes Bridge is a great hill), walk in the mall and, best of all, walk on the beach. I walk every one of my days off from running. It helps me recover and it develops different muscles that augment my running. Try walking in beach sand for a challenging distance and youll use muscles in your feet and legs that you havent stressed in, well, maybe ever. Now lets get back to my two friends. He used to run, but the jarring was breaking down his body. She had back surgery. So they started walking and they loved it. AND they walked faster and they walked farther and they got much better at it. Now theyre race walking, they feel great and theyre inspiring others. Anyone can do it. You just have to get out the back door.Beach Chefs Fire Up FryersThe veteran chefs at the Pensacola Beach Community Church will be serving up a traditional vember 16 from 3 to 6 p.m. There are three ways to get Beach Church Fellowship Hall will serve as a dining room or you can pick up your order to-go.

This week I was living in a Harry Potter book. Every time I turned around the stairs were changing and moving to different locations. Trying to go forward, up the stairs was impossible. Remember the scene in the movie where the students were walking up the stairs and they kept shifting around? The Holidays are a double edged sword. Anticipated with much joy and unrealistic expectations. Our lives are not as depicted in a Hollywood movie. With our already busy schedule adding all these additional obligations is overwhelming. Lace these events with family stress and the most calm and organized among us is rattled. Common causes of Holiday stress and anxiety can be managed with acknowledgment and "me" time sprinkled in the mix. Say No when possible and delegate. Fatigue, physical exhaustion, and lack of sleep can really wreak havoc on our complexions and our general overall mood. So,literally schedule in more sleep. Financial worries? Try to eat out less and make some of your gifts to help. Honestly, most people would prefer something personalized for them. How many gift cards have you lost? Unrealistic expectations? Perfection in holiday events is impossible. Don't set yourself up for disappointments. Kids will have meltdowns; dogs will eat your Turkey and well, family members...no comment. Being ready for these imperfections will help you deal with the associated stress. How to handle all this chaos and confusion? Try to identify your trigger points. Find free holiday activities, and avoid uncomfortable situations during the holidays. Let go of perfection. Word to the wise. Do not look at Holiday magazines, they are truly depressing. Nobody's house really looks like those advertisement pictures. Buy store bought cut and slice cookie dough or already baked cookies. Let your children decorate those, they will be thrilled. Do homemade cookies for Christmas gifts. Talk to a friend. Have a quick cup of tea and share stories. Let others help you or ask a neighborhood teen to come in for additional projects. New concept for me, I assure you. Get some exercise. Keep your routine as regular as possible. Exercise reduces stress and anxiety, while increasing energy! Recharge. It is proven that even 20 minutes (doing something for yourself) can recharge your batteries. Listen to music, take a walk. As a single mother I used to put a do not disturb sign on my door and tell my children I was meditating on my navel. Translated...unless there are broken bones or blood do not bother Mum. Have a good laugh. Remember...a hurricane is a real problem, the rest of life is just a series of wrinkles. While the Holiday Season descends upon us, avoid those moving stairways. Accentuate the positive. Quaharini (Until we meet again.) The Gulf Breeze Book Club will discuss two books at their regular meeting, Monday, November 25 at the Pensacola Beach Elks Lodge. The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. on the third floor of the Lodge. We always welcome visitors. Do come sit in, said Book Clubber Donna Jones. Instead of our usual one book, this month the Club will be discussing two relatively small books that compliment one another. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne and Night by Elie Wiesel are works that deal with the personal experiences of the Jews during World War II.

You'll do better focusing on just a few tasks rather than spreading yourself too thin. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your heart might be leading you in one direction, but pay attention to your keen Bovine intellect. I'm cautioning you to think things through before making any commitments. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your "serious" Twin has been dominant in your life for quite a while. It's time now to let that "wilder" half take you out for some good times -perhaps with someone very special. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Career aspects are high for Moon Children who make a good impression. Show people not only what you can already do, but also how you can be more valuable to them in the future. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Things start to brighten for the Lion's careful to resist the urge to splurge. You need to tuck something away to help you through another tight period. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Having to do too many tasks in too short a time could lower your mood to just above the grumbling level. But if you handle things one at a time, you'll get through it all soon enough. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your usually carefully made holiday plans could be subject to change later this month. Use this week to prepare for that possibility by starting a Plan B just in case you need it. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Be careful about joining a colleague's plan to solve a workplace problem. Investigate it thoroughly. a predicament with other associates. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Slow down that high-paced whirl you've been on. Spending quiet time alone or with people you care for can be both physically and spiritually restorative. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Make suggestions, not demands. You'll be more successful in getting people to follow your lead if you exercise quiet patience instead of strong persuasion to get your ideas across. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You still need more facts before you can make an informed career choice. One note of caution: Be careful about whom you ask for that information; otherwise, you could be misled. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Changing situations through the end of the week could lead to some challenging opportunities for those perspicacious Pisceans who know how to make them work to their advantage.

Its been a fantastic year for fishing and it hasn't stopped yet. The Redfish are really starting to move right now and reports from the Bob Sikes Bridge been phenomenal. Huge Bull Reds are being reporting and here's a pic sent to me. I just love seeing your pictures; nice job. I've been out at Fort Pickens and you can really see the Redfish schooling in the water just off the pier. I'm having great luck and so much fun catching them, too. Remember must fall between eighteen and twenty-seven inches. Bull Reds are so much fun to bring in, but practice catch and release with them. It's good karma for your next trip. Lots of action on the Piers. A generous amount of Mahi over these past two weeks and now Bonito are being caught, too. Several King Mackerel have been reported by anglers on the Navarre pier. All the piers have reported too. What a great way to spend an afternoon with these beautiful days we have been having! One of our bartenders at The Dock, Julie Hamilton caught the fever watching everyone else. She got herself a rod and reel and has been trying her luck. Stick with it Jules. We'll see you catching them in no time. Plenty of Flounder action being reported though this cooler snap will have them moving. The run typically begins in late October or November during front and continues through the early winter months. This means heavy concentrations of Flounder from the river mouths to the Pass.
