Southeast Florida pays homage to Louisiana and all things in common with the Sunshine State.  On November 9, National Louisiana Day recognizes the state that brought us such treasures as Jazz, Creole, Beignets and Mardi Gras.

Louisiana has a moist subtropical climate just like South Florida. Both states are "classic" examples of a sultry climate with long, warm, humid summers and short, mild winters. Comparatively, Tampa and New Orleans are relatively similar in climate.  Tampa has less rainfall and precipitation.  Florida claims more sunny days than Louisiana too. The comfort index is higher in Florida as well.

Both Florida and Louisiana are on the Gulf Coast of the United States. It is the coastline along the Southern United States where several…

 South Florida’s Palm Beach County is a slice of heaven where you can exercise outside, essentially, any time of year.  However, this time of year is almost too good to be true not to escape the gym and get outside. Nature is a perfect playground.

According to a study in the journal “Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise”, people are as much as 40 percent more likely to exercise regularly in the summer than in the winter.  Most of the heart benefiting effort comes from leg muscles and glutes.  Imagine the challenge of running beach sand.  Sounds a bit tougher than the treadmill at the gym.

 Don’t bother with old school sit-ups to work your core muscles.  Concentrate the exercise routine on stability.  Surfing, kayaking, kite surfing or standup…

Cinquez Park, located at 2183 West Indiantown Road in Jupiter, is a new dog park which has joined other dog friendly “off leash” fun spots in addition to the beach.  Under the direction of their owners, a dog park is a safe place for dogs to exercise and play off-leash in a secure environment.  Most canine parks characteristically offer a 6' fence, separate gated entries for large and small breeds, water, shade for hot days and benches for humans.  The dog park should have regular maintenance and sanitizing of the grounds.

Cities are opening dog parks because the demand continues to increase. The number of dog parks have increased 20% over the past five years. Wandering freely is positive for dogs. Studies show that leads can cause dogs to become…

Veterans Day marks an important day in U.S. history- the anniversary of the end of World War I.

In 1919, President Wilson commemorated the first Veterans Day (then known as Armistice Day) with these words: “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…”

On this day every year, we honor U.S. Veterans and victims of all wars, and businesses all over America show their gratitude by offering discounts and freebies like the ones below. If you’re a…

The YMCA has announced that Emmitt Smith will be the keynote speaker at the 10th Annual Prayer Breakfast this December.

Smith became NFL’s all-time leading rusher during his fifteen seasons as a professional football player during the 1990s and 2000s. He is a three-time Super Bowl Champion, and NFL Hall of Famer, and of course- winner of season 3 Dancing with the Stars.

Fireball Alert: No, not “that” Fireball!  Look up in the Jupiter evening sky tonight to hopefully, witness a celestial fireball. November is a busy month for the night sky.  A fireball is an alternative term for a very bright meteor, generally brighter than magnitude -4, which is about the same magnitude of the brightest planet, Venus, in the morning or evening sky.  Then there is a bolide. That is a distinct type of fireball which explodes in a bright flash when it reaches the atmosphere, usually with visible disintegration.

The Taurid meteor shower happens this week, and it can be “bold in its showmanship”. The Taurid meteor is known for cutting through dark night skies with brilliant, long-lasting fireballs. All Taurids are debris from the Comet…
