RAINY DAYS AND MONDAYS

 

DON’T GET US DOWN… 

istock_000003683701small_786_02

Perhaps, “Rainy days and Mondays” got the Carpenters down because they didn’t live in our area!  If the immensely popular brother and sister duo from the 1970’s had chosen South Florida, they might have found plenty of things to do on a rainy day, but they wouldn’t have had that Billboard Top 100 record and their fourth gold single!   

If you’re not familiar with the duo The Carpenters, they were in great demand in the 1970’s.  Richard and Karen created a soft musical style that made them top selling artists when most contemporary music was hard hitting rock and roll.   They recorded 11 albums and television specials.

Ryan Hunter-Reay is one of Indy Car’s première drivers. As a member of Andretti Racing he won “Rookie of the Year” in 2007.  He holds the honor of being the only driver to win CART, Champ Car, and Indy Car!  Follow Ryan on his official website www.ryanracing.com.  At the age of 31, Hunter-Reay hates when people drive fast through the South Florida neighborhood he shares with his wife. He prefers a slower pace, a much more relaxed lifestyle, than the fast paced Indy racetrack for his “down time”.

He can’t find enough excuses, like any other local, to take out the boat and fish or dive.  Whether fishing or diving, or…

The London Olympics 2012

Did you know Olympic athletes have to pay taxes for the medals they bring home to the United States?  It is not due to the actual value of the medal itself, but it is attached to the prize money that accompanies the gold, silver, or bronze medal the Olympian wins.
