  1. Yuck that you need to pay for it, but I believe that it's all Federal backed and has a fairly set price based on the flood zone that you're in. Probably not a lot of shopping required. Other's who have been in FL longer can better comment.
  2. And fresh seafood. And driving distance to ports. And no state income tax. And... Combined with the warmer weather, it's definitely a no-brainer for me.
  3. My father was big into video recording everything when I was little. He rigged up a board that held the camera in the middle and had flood lights on either end. We always had to wait at the top of the stairs until he was ready before coming down on Christmas morning. Felt like an eternity. When he was finally ready, we got blasted with those lights in our face. Surprised that none of us ever fell down the steps. I have a box of those old videos somewhere. I really should send them to one of those services to get them converted to digital.
  4. Crystal - You're going to love the weather in Florida, but you're going to miss those beautiful mountain hikes.
  5. Thanks. Couldn't do it this year anyway since we already have plans for this coming weekend. I'm asking for next year. The link you gave shows several hotels, in addition to the host Hilton. Adding it to my bookmarks.
  6. Looks like something that I need to add to my to do list. Are there hotel rooms available during the show or does the entire area get booked?
  7. Great pictures so far Andrew. I'm not a big car guy but I'm still fascinated by the event and many of the cars are just spectacular.
  8. Reminds me of the story of a diehard Detroit Red Wings fan whose last name was Arena. They named their first born Joe Louis so that his full name would be Joe Louis Arena, where the Red Wings played at the time.
  9. Unfortunately, a mostly boring Masters this year. Thought maybe Xander had a shot until 16. Jordan couldn't seem to get things going all week. Congrats to Hideki Matsuyama. Sounds like he will be a national hero as the first Japanese winner of a golf major in a golf crazed country. I wouldn't be surprised, as they suggested on the broadcast, if he was chosen to light the Olympic flame...maybe along with Tsubasa Kajitani who won the Augusta National Women's Amateur a couple of weeks ago.
  10. I am a (not quite so much anymore) diehard Red Sox fan. Better not get into a Red Sox vs. Yankees "discussion". That would put some of the other heated discussions on CC to shame.
  11. Every now and then I think about what it must be like to have that kind of money. A billion dollars probably generates at least $50M a year in interest. It would be a nice challenge to have to spend $50M a year or your wealth grows even more. A $300M yacht plus what is likely several million $ a year in operating costs would make that challenge easier.
  12. Change of plans. It's cooler and rainy here today so no walk or driving range. Instead, lots of TV, recliner, and refrigerator action. Hoping that Hideki Matsuyama doesn't build on his 3rd round Masters lead and that we get a typical Sunday finish. Masters Sunday is my favorite golf day of the year (apologies to Graham and our other UK friends here 😁).
  13. All pics very much welcomed, whether cars, golf, or Alcatraz. The 17 mile drive is just gorgeous if that’s in your photo library. Unfortunately, we will miss the Amelia Concours this year. It got push back from March into May due to Covid. We will be back in Ohio then selling our house. Oh well, probably won’t be the full experience this year anyway and there will be many years still to come.
  14. Plan for the day: 1. Go for a walk 2. Spend about an hour at the driving range pretending like I am improving my golf game. 3. Spend several hours in front of the television watching Sunday at the Masters. Would love to see Will Zalatoris win today. He's going to feel pressure like he never has in his young life.
