Music has healing power.
It has the ability to take people
out of themselves for a few hours.

Porte Ponderings:

The last weekend before we head home and the packing is starting. Purge items we don’t want to take home and eat the stuff in the fridge. No more grocery buying. Even though we’ve tried to slow down shopping, there are still some things we need before we go home. I managed to run out of denture cleaner and heaven forbid, Peanut Butter.

Rickie has an appointment for a final haircut before we go home and Pasty has a manicure scheduled.

I have a painting to finish and more pictures I want to take.

Goodbyes have been ongoing for the month as others are heading home earlier.

Those renting monthly are waiting until the end of the month.

Still others are just arriving for the Month of April.

Temperatures are over 85F every day and the lows are now only 70F, so its time for me to go home. 😉

Porte Ponderings:

On our return trip from St Cloud we stopped at Kissimmee FL to see the Monument of States. A stone collection from a traveler turned into a huge monument. Many people collect stones from places they visit, but this is the largest collection I’ve seen.

Free Speech in Florida?

“Don’t Say Gay” bill was passed and Homosexuality is illegal to talk about in Public Elementary Schools. Disney enterprises dared to speak out against this bill and have been punished for speaking out by loosing their previously gained right to self-govern. They were even warned before the right was legislated away.

Now Florida elected government officials are targeting bloggers.


Any Florida bloggers who write about elected officials will be required to register within 3 days of writing about said government officials. If they fail to register they could be fined $25,000 per report. Do Florida elected officials realize people will write about them who aren’t under their control? Florida elected officials only have jurisdiction in Florida. So this new law will not be applicable to the rest of the world. What will the cost of enforcement be? I suggest everyone write their blogs in Florida about government officials and flood their proposed registration system. Here’s my start: Ron DeSantis, Paul Renner, Fentrice Driskell, John Snyder, ….
