    Hi, Crazy! You can say that again, I need a cam to get those pictures already, probably the most beautiful thing you get to see around these places.

    Nice pics there Datura, just keep reminding of a paradise you live in

    Drifting in to say hi myself. It's been a while.

    I've been at college for 3 weeks now (freshman year), and so have been really busy, but it's been great. I just wish the weather would be cool here. It's been between 25-30 C all last week, though this weekend it finally rained a bit so hopefully it cools down a little.

    Class doesn't start till 11:00 tomorrow...

    College is the greatest thing that's ever happened to me. I absolutely love it here. The university I attend (Duquesne University) is excellent, and everyone's really nice.

    Hope things are well there.

    All is well here

    I am glad you like it, it is a very important chapter in your life and nothing beats nice people around.

    I looked at your University site previously, very nice indeed.

    Yeah, it really is great, and people are so helpful. Luckily I only got lost once so far , but people were around to help thankfully. I got a little fame on campus after winning the talent show they had for freshmen during orientation week. Very different from in high school; here people actually come up and say hi, approach me etc...high school was completely different in that, well, no one said anything to me lol.

    Schedule's much nicer too. I only have 5 classes, and they're not every day of the week (usually either Mon-Wed-Fri or Tues-Thurs), except for Calculus which I have 4 days a week.

    That is just wonderful Brandon. It is good that you are being included in all of the activities and that people are behaving in a normal way around you and with you.

    It just makes me feel good to hear that. Did you play the piano in that talent show?(as if I have to really ask )

    Hi guys just drifting in here tonight. How are you all?

    We are in storm season right now here in Florida, so rain and thunderstorms are with us a lot.

    I love rain and thunder, especially if I'm inside looking out Is the rain more tropical rain (which appears to fall straight down) or are you getting squally wind driven rain?

    We get both actually. Sometimes it just drops straight down, sometimes it is a fine misting, often it is squally and driven, beating the windows and pasting shredded leaves onto the glass. Windows are never clear here, too much weather and salt as well.

    I do love rain and thunderstorms too. Thunderstorms are very dangerous here though, caution is a must. To get caught on the beach in a storm is not a good thing, but weather is very predictable here. The information about it is easy to get, so planing a day with weather in mind is second nature to us.

    The storms we have every late afternoon in the summer and early fall create for us of course the spectacle of the beautiful sunsets. We get paid for enduring some inconveniences caused by these storms

    PS. Today we have a tropical storm sitting out in the gulf, so the air is too thick to cut even with a serrated knife !

    In this kind of heat/humidity, we become amphibians, so much moisture in the air that breathing in feels like a drink of water. I do like that feeling however, some people cannot stand it. Even though I don't live anywhere approaching 'tropical' my memory of it is that while it can become discomforting I remember actually quite liking it.

    Hi Mizzy, hi Andy

    Yes, the moist heat is like an envelope. It is nice at the beach, there you have a breeze, but when you get away from it it gets a bit much sometimes. Drip drip.

    So Mizzy, did you knit a sweater yet to stay cozy?

    Mizzy -- I used to knit these huge sweaters, long with very large floppy collars. I would wear them over leggings, well, they were more like the stretchy ski pants, the fore-runners of leggings. Just loved it. Pockets and fancy stitches as well. Patterns. I have not knitted in a while. Just imagine this heat here and then holding this sweater on your lap while you knit. No thank you!

    Yes indeed. We have a noticeable change also, the winds are picking up, it is a bit dimmer, the air has a slight freshness to it. I do miss the fall in the north though, oh those pretty days when the fog curls up in the morning over the meadows, the sun bites its way through it and then helps paint those beautiful leaves, mushroom hunting…You can really enjoy all things, no matter where you are, they are just different, you have to adapt.
