Now here is a story that gets my gander. I wonder how one becomes a judge in the Florida? I want to apply for the position so news stories like this one does not happen.
Sanford, FL – Florida Department of Law Enforcement agents broke up an identity theft ring that was based out of a Sanford home Monday. The suspect was raking in $10,000 per week by stealing the identities of Central Floridians. He was so successful that he had to hire employees to handle all his victims.
They were not only stealing checks, but making them also, along with fake driver’s licenses. They were breaking into community mailboxes, stealing credit card statements and other personal mail that would assist them in their scheme.
Here’s the kicker, the main man was on federal probation at the time for doing the same thing. Why was he out on probation? Come on judges wake up and keep these scumbags in prison.
A couple of accused burglars decided to ask a Volusia County Sheriff’s deputy for a ride home at 4 a.m., Monday. The deputy said he was a little suspicious when he saw the duo walking down the road. They told him they had gotten lost after leaving a friend’s house, but could not pinpoint the exact location of the house.
While trying to convince the officer one of the bozos did a dance claiming he was an up-and-coming rapper. While doing his “I want to be a star” dance, his pants revealed several stolen items that he had shoved in them. Can we all say “STUPID?” Our boys are now entertaining in the Volusia County Jail.

POEMS WRITTEN BY A WIFE TO HER HUSBAND
God saw me hungry, he created pizza,
He saw me thirsty, he created Pepsi,
He saw me in the dark, he created light,
He saw me without problems, he created YOU.
Twinkle Twinkle little star,
You should know what you are,
And once you know what you are,
The mental hospital is not so far.
The rain makes all things beautiful,
The grass and flowers too,
If rain makes all things beautiful,
Why doesn't it rain on you?
Hope you had a chuckle and have a nice day.
1. Accept that some days you’re the pigeon and some days the statue.
2. Always keep your words soft and sweet in case you have to eat them.
3. Drive carefully. It’s not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.
4. Remember that it’s the second mouse that gets the cheese.
5. Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won’t have a leg to stand on.
6. Accept that you may be only one person in the world—but you may also be the world to one person.
7. Realize that a truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.
8. Sleep late. It’s the early worm that gets eaten by the bird.

I'm sure some of you will be visiting Central Florida on vacation this summer. Taking the little ones to Disney, or visiting the beaches remember it's hot down here. Right now the temperature is around 98 degrees and with the heat index, it feels like 106 outside. Whatever you do activity wise, don't rush, drink plenty of water and if you burn, put on the sunscreen and most of all keep your cool, tempers flare when it's hot.
If you visit the beaches beware of the riptides and don't venture out to far or you'll never come back. Lifeguards had to rescue 200 swimmers this weekend due the the riptides in one county alone. So take Joey Z's advice, play it safe and have a great time in Florida. Maybe Governor Charlie can throw me a few bucks for a tourism slot on my blog. What do you say Gov?
Talk to you Speakies tomorrow, have a great evening.
Let’s see what celebrations occurs today. We have:
Perigan Spring Tides – It’s that scientific thing with the moon and the tides.
Stupid Guy Thing Day- All right guys this day gives us the OK to act stupid with no complaints.
Let’s see who had birthdays today:
1858 – Giacomo Puccini – Composer of Madam Butterfly.
1903 – John Dillinger – Gangster, shot down on a hot night in old Chicago town.
1920 – Paul Frees – The Voice of Bullwinkle J. Moose.
1936 – Kris Kristofferson – Singer/Actor.
1941 – Ed Bradley – 60 Minutes man.
1947 – David L. Lander – Squiggy of Laverne and Shirley.

Thought for the Day:
“You are not judged by how much you love, but by how much you are loved by others.”

What is Father's Day? To some fathers it may be a new tie or shirt, a day fishing or playing golf. To me it's the memories I have and hold dear in my heart as I grow older. As a kid he was my Daddy, as a teenager he was my Pop, in my adult years he was still my Pop to me. A man who took me fishing, played catch, took me to baseball and basketball games and cried as I took a train to leave for the service during the Vietnam War. My Dad was my friend even though at times we never expressed our love for each other, he knew how much I loved him and I knew his feelings for me. He's gone now, so Pop, I love you and may you have a Happy Father's Day and may the Mets win today for you. Thanks for all your love and all you did for me.
What is Father's Day for me, well it starts with a special person named Rosemary, my wife, she blessed me with our first son Joey. This little guy was born 2 months premature at 2 pounds and 13 ounces. His chances at living were very slim, but Roe and I never gave up hope and now he's going to be 30 years old soon. Joey, I enjoyed taking you fishing, playing catch, taking you to the Princeton basketball games and all the other things we shared. You are a college graduate and now a hard working young man whom I'm very proud of. You now have a wonderful girlfriend, named Elizabeth and I'm sure one day you both will be married and have children of your own. Joey, you will make a great Father. You have the love, concern and that special something that will make you a Daddy your children will love.
Rosemary and I were blessed with a second son, Jeffrey. This little guy was born 8 pounds and a lot of ounces and healthy as could be. To me Jeff, you always traveled to the beat of a different drum. I still remember taking you fishing, playing catch, but you always had to do it your way. You have that something special, I can't name. Maybe it's that musician and artist's blood in you that makes you travel to that beat. You met a wonderful partner in Samantha, who blessed you with 2 wonderful children. There were times I worried about you and many nights I could not sleep, but prayed that things would turn out for the better. You turned around things around and when I saw that special present Sam made for you for Father's Day, my eyes filled with tears of joy for the both of you and the kids. Jeff, God blessed you with the 2 most beautiful children and a special partner to share life with. I'm so proud of you also. Keep showing that special love you have to them. I guess God blessed Mom and me with the best sons parents could ever want. Joey and Jeff you are my Father's Day Gift. Thank You.
For anyone who is going to be a Father, have patience, love and understanding. Listen to your children, hear what they say and than judge their intentions. I was never perfect, nor will I ever be, but I was blessed with a wonderful wife and 2 great sons. Enjoy your day Dads and your children for that's the true meaning of Father's Day.

"To be trusted is a greater compliment than to be loved."
A mother was accused of robbing a Wendy's Restaurant after a wild car chase ended in Brevard County, FL. Police said the woman's 3 year old daughter was found in the car after the chase ended. The chase ended after stopsticks were deployed. Following the arrest the woman for unknown reasons was transported to the local hospital. She was reported missing prior to committing the robbery. The daughter was returned to the custody of her father and all is well.
Momma probably won't be seen for awhile.

We both arrived, mouths watering and stomachs groaning for a good bite to eat. Orders were placed and in about 10 minutes the sandwiches arrived. The Ciabetta was the size of a hamburger bun, we could not locate the cheese and the meat tasted like processed beef (one could see the rainbow colors in the meat). It was edible but Rosemary spoke to the server about the quality of the food. Later the kitchen manager came over to our table to hear our disappointment with the meal. She stated when the restaurant originally opened, they received the food from the wrong distributor who handled the bread and meat. What we were served yesterday came from the distributor who originally was to supply the restaurant. So what was good tasting in the first place was replaced by the awful tasting food instead. Did not make sense to Rosemary and of course she is always right in her logic.
The bill was paid and O'Charley's is now scratched off our list. If you come to Orlando, the fate is yours to choose. I only write my feelings, but food you pay for should be high quality and tasty, that's what brings return business from locals and tourists to these restaurant chains. Maybe I just miss the Mom and Pop restaurants, where they know your name and the food is made and served with love and care for the patrons. That's what makes me say we'll be back.

Two stories this morning one of the turtle and the chase, the other; the search for a cat serial killer.
Cocoa Beach, FL - Four men led deputies on a 90 mph chase on the Beeline (It's now called the Beachline, but I call it the Beeline). Deputies saw the truck swerving in and out of the traffic and began to follow it, but the driver sped up with beer cans starting to fly out of the truck. When stopped, deputies found a soft shell turtle in the bed of the truck, which is a violation of the Florida wildlife law. Of the four men arrested two are father and son, put under the arrest for DUI (Old saying applies here, "Like Father, Like Son"). The other two nimyos were arrested for violation of probation on a DUI.
My question is "would it have been the real turtle soup or merely the mock"?
Miami, FL - Horrified owners have been finding their cats killed and mutilated for the past months in two south Miami-Dade County communities. Many of the cats were missing fur and had been cut with a sharp instrument. There have been about 15 reported cases and owners are keeping their pets inside, raising reward money and warily eyeing strangers. What does a cat killer look like? A Jack the Ripper style of a man, dressed in black with a wide brim hat and a straight razor for the job. Who knows, but when this individual or individuals are apprehended I say lock them in the looney bin and throw away the key.

We have a great foody treat in Trenton, NJ, called Pork Roll, people from Jersey and Philly are familiar with this grand old sandwich meat. It's round and you can fry it in a pan or on the grill. It makes a great sandwich or serve it with eggs for breakfast. Now I like mine with eggs for breakfast, even a egg and porkroll sandwich is great. My favorite is a cheesepork roll with spicy mustard and relish on a hard round roll, if that's not available, a hamburger bun will do. Let me know Speakies how you like yours. If you never tried it you may find it at your local grocery store, it's called Taylor Pork Roll. There is a site that will start taking orders again in August. It's called porkrollexpress. Check it out.

Police tried to arrest the suspect after he pulled out a knife and an ice pick but Sister Margaret Anthony stepped between and started with the holy lecture. A warning was given that she would be arrested and finally the police had no choice but to handcuff her.
The idea did not sit well with the officers, they did not take her to jail, instead they released her when she promised to appear in court. Her charges are obstruction of justice and disorderly conduct.
Sister, Sister, Sister before you appear in court, remember you'll have to answer to a higher authority.

After dinner all the servers, a big Sombrero hat with a dessert and one candle arrived at our table. Of course I had to put the hat on while they sang in Spanish, but what the hell your birthday is once a year. The dessert was a thick wafer (If your Polish like a kruchiki), covered in honey, chocolate drizzle and whipped cream.
If you are ever in the area, you have to try this restaurant. Special thanks to Carlos the server he was quite the host. Thanks Honey for celebrating it with me.
First of all I want to thank everyone for their birthday wishes yesterday. Thank you all. Now for some June 3 daily observances we celebrate.
Chimborazo Day - I know your asking me what is that, well my readers a little education is listed below:
The province of Chimborazo is named after the highest Ecuadorian mountain (20.702 feet above sea level), the third highest elevation in America after the Aconcagua in the Chilean-Argentinean border and the Huascarán in Peru. The summit of the Chimborazo is the furthest point from the center of the Earth, as it is crossed by the Equatorial line, where the Earth is wider. Thus, if measured from the center of the Earth, the Chimborazo would be the highest mountain on the planet. The majestic Chimborazo has attracted adventurers and scientists such as Humboldt and Whimper and has inspired artists and writers.
We also celebrate National Tailors Day - This is dedicated to all tailors world wide. Men who have made suits, shirts, slacks and altered our clothing after we ate too much or lost weight. Men standing proud with tape measures around their necks and chalk in their fingers, we salute you this day. Now can you have my pants ready on Friday!
