If you stop by here in the next week or so you'll find that Beach Peanuts is dark. I'm taking my annual post-summer hiatus and won't be posting, unless something breaks that I feel the need to comment on. I'll be back posting on a regular basis at the end of the month, and in the meantime I'll still be on Twitter and Facebook occasionally. Let's hope the crazy stays toned down while I'm off.
As always, thanks for stopping by, reading, and commenting. I'll see you when I return!
I'm off this week so I probably won't be posting, but I couldn't resist a mention of this.
Rick Scott has shut down the Lt. Governor's office and told the staff "don't let the door hit ya' in order to "save money." That's four more "not working" in Florida to add to the unemployment list. He also "secured the state computers." Hmm, wonder what's on them that needs to be "secured?" Also wonder if we'll ever find out, you know, transparency and all...
If you read Beach Peanuts and like what I have to say here, I would be so grateful for a shout out to be on The Fix list for Florida.
From The Fix:
Here’s what we want from you. If you’ve got a favorite blog in your home state, your adopted home state or just a state whose politics you follow closely, submit it in our nomination form[here]. (You can fill out the form as many times as you like if you have a whole lot of blogs you like.) If you prefer to make your nominations via Twitter, just make sure it contains the hashtag #fixblogs.
There's so much to cover in Florida, and while there's no way I can cover all of it, (it's just me here, with a little assistance in my "art department") I do my best to choose some of the topics that I think are most important.
Whether you nominate me or not, I appreciate all my readers, both the regulars and those of you who are new here, and I hope you'll keep coming back!
I'm taking some time off for the next week and a half and will be traveling during that time. I may check in to blog a little here and there if I have the time, and I'll pop in on Twitter daily to keep up on what's going on, but mostly taking a break before the busy run up to the election. When I return I'll get back on my usual schedule until the elections in November.
Until then, I'll leave my trusty editor here to watch over the blog until I get back.
Have a good, progressive week, and keep those Republicans and Conservatives in line until I get back!
Beach Peanuts is honored to be nominated again this year, not only for "Best State Blog," but for "Best National Blog" as well, where I face stiff competition from some of the state's best writers and bloggers.
Voting will be open until October 21, and you can vote here.
Nope. Didn't watch the latest "crazy-off" GOP debate in Orlando tonight. In fact I'm not even in Florida at the moment, and was nowhere near a television tonight even if I'd wanted to watch. (I didn't.) I have heard horror stories however, but will leave those highlights to my other blogger friends who did.
In the meantime, Beach Peanuts is taking a few days off in another part of this beautiful country, and a much more liberal part of the country as well. I will be back to full time blogging next week when I return.
There may however, be one exception, as I hear a certain POTUS will be here in town this weekend, and will also be staying at the same hotel as I am. In the event that I see him while he's here, I may blog about that, although he has no public events "scheduled," so we'll see.
Otherwise, I will be back blogging full time again next week as we get closer to the silly season descending into the Presidential campaign season. Got A feeling it's going to get pretty ugly. (As if it hasn't already.)
