8/23 - not much new on the site

Hurrican Irene is expected to bypass Florida. Good news for us, not for the people up north, who also happen to have an earthquake today. North Carolina, Virginia, Washington, New York, Boston have felt it. Glad everyone is OK with only minor property damage.

I am trying to get back into updating the site more often. We recently contacted the staff at the city with some of the minor issues around the neighborhood and guess what? The city came through and fixed them. Good to know the city cares about our neighborhood. Thank you. More on that later.

HAPPY BIRTH DAY TO MY NEPHEW! He is a big 4 now. Wow, what a busy weekend. Didn't even work on the site that much, didn't cook, didn't rest....Had a wedding to go to on Saturday. It was fun, really enjoyed it, Congratulations Joe and Vanessa! Helping my GF with schoolwork. She is swamped up in New York. Don't worry baby, you'll do fine and will pass and graduate. Another New Yorker soon moving down to South Florida. How many of them do we need here? :-D It's a joke honey, love you!

  • just got the live video working again. it will be up and down as i improve the stream and setup a dedicated server
  • got some news up, new jobs and companies in and around sawgrass mills. Lots of companies moving to Sunrise
  • working on some partnerships which will bring better and more content and resident specials

I am enjoying working on this site. If you would like to help or advertise please contact us.

So many errands yesterday, didn't even get a chance to set up a meeting with a partner. But after I came home last night, I made some pasta for lunch today and fried up some zuchini. Dip the slices in egg, then bread crumbs and into the frying pan with olive oil, 3 minutes on each side. Dry on a napkin. Yum! As far as the website is concerned, added plenty of news, and an open letter to some of our elected officials regarding greenways and cycling in Broward County.

Need some help for the site. Please submit your articles, photos, drawings or any thing else that's fit to print. Can't wait for the weekend.

Btw, bought the Quiznos Groupon deal myself today. $6 for 2 subs and salads is too good to pass up.

Me and my girlfriend enjoy coming up with new activities to do. I actually enjoy cooking and baking and trying new stuff. One night we were bored and decided to have a pizza cook-off competition at home. Sure you can order Domino's or Papa John's (which is east of Flamingo on Sunrise, in the AAA shopping plaza) but what fun would that be?

Back from New York City late last night/early this morning. The plane touched down at 3:10am, you read that right. It was delayed by 5 hours due to weather at LaGuardia. Plus you can count on Spirit to add a few hours of their own delay to that. Flying to NY last Thursday night, the plane was delayed by 3 hours out of the Fort Lauderdale International. Operating on only 2 hours of sleep but I'll try update the site in the evening today. Hope everyone had a good weekend. It was 102 degrees in New York City last Friday and Saturday. My girlfriend is sick so haven't had the time to update the site. I hope you feel better baby, I love you!

  • I love how people actually use public parks in NY - article soon
  • I love seeing public art displays - pics soon
  • still shopping for a decent camera for a live view. I know there are people looking forward to it. Sorry Ricardo and the rest of you.
  • meanwhile, check out Mouse Media

Had to get a new inner tube for my mountain bike today. I have 'deep' rims and the valve stem on the inner tubes they sell at SuperTarget or Walmart is not long enough. West Broward Bike Center down 136 avenue came to the rescue. Check them out.

Also updated Tao Sawgrass front page. Meet Carmen, our front desk concierge. She has been here longer than any of us.
