Happy Friday, let us all pray this rain stops not just for long weekend, but for all those that are flooded out of their homes around our county.
Fishstock 2009 is scheduled to start today, not sure how that will play out with the monsoon rains that continue in NSB.
Flagler Art Walk is tomorrow beginning at 10am. Weather should improve enough for that to be an enjoyable event.
The Farmers Market on Canal Street is Saturday from 7:30am-12:30pm. The Oak Hill Seafood Co-op is now one of the vendors, they have fresh, local seafood at reasonable prices.

One must ask themselves....WHY?
Wednesday, May 20, 2009
ENTER, the new and "improved" menu. Hit 3 to report power outages. Hit 3 and you hear, "Electrical Emergency Not Available" then click(that is the sound of your call being disconnected), yes the emergency line cuts you off. So I am thinking well the line is probably busy with many callers. I wait...I call back..."Electrical Emergency Not Available" CLICK......Now I say to my self, "SELF, ARE YOU KIDDING ME????"
Is it just me or should the words "ELECTRICAL EMERGENCY" and "NOT AVAILABLE" not be uttered in the same sentence...particularly not by the POWER COMPANY?
Hey Utilities Commission, can we have our old menu back?

STOP the madness, I want to get off
I took a look at our schedule for the next two weeks and I am not entirely sure how one person can be in as many places as I need to be in the amount of hours in a day. Oh and work too.....
It is a double edged sword, I know once school is out after about 3 days I will hear...."Mom, I am bored...."

May 1st began the start of the six month sea turtle nesting season along our beaches. According to the Volusia Sea Turtle Society, 2008 was a record season for sea turtles in our area and they are optimistic about 2009.

Please remember to black out all lights on the beach between now and October 31st. Here are some more tips for helping the turtles.
Enjoy the beach, save the turtles!
