Chasing the sun

NYC’s cold snap is ending.

Snow

Just in time for my trips to New Orleans and Naples (Florida, not Italy).

Don’t worry: I have scheduled lots of posts to hopefully keep you entertained while I’m away.

I plan to come back with good pictures and stories. Enjoy your week!

Twitter Spotlight: Tammy Gordon

Update: @FloridaGirlinDC is now @Tammy. What a great Twitter handle!

Tammy is another vivacious woman I regret not meeting during my years living in Washington, DC. Know that I plan to rectify that during my upcoming trip there.

Tammy’s Instagram account is a terrific way to peek in at her exciting life full of good friends, good food and one super cute dog named Ike.

OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest

@floridagirlindc: Funny Democrats with jobs that like girls who eat out a lot and have small dogs. So, clearly I’m about to fall in love with a dull Republican that hates farmers markets and loves cats.

We need to talk about this

Not my normal light far. No snark. Very serious.

America’s homeless population, particularly teens and children, continues to grow. 60 Minutes’ coverage of this subject tonight tore out my heart, dropped it on the ground and then stomped on it with a stiletto for good measure.

I want to do something. For starters, I have some electronics equipment I plan to donate including a brand new fax machine/copier/scanner I had planned to sell on Craigslist.

Of course I realize that there are homeless people right here in NYC where I live, however the fact that 1/3 of the United States’ homeless population lives in Florida put into perspective the magnitude of the crisis (as well as how it taxes one state’s resources).

If you’d like to join me, leave a comment that includes your twitter handle or another means of contacting you. Let’s see what we can do to help collectively.
