We went to a spring-training game while in Florida, called the "Grapefruit League" I'm told. The Mets played the Cardinals, and the Cardinals won. (You're surprised?)
It was a nice day in a small stadium, the Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter. There were quite a few Mets fans to keep us company!

The parades are huge in most towns and can last for hours, with every group and organization represented. You can see bagpipes, and fire trucks and marching bands from every Long Island neighborhood all in the same parade!
Here in Palm Beach County, Florida, there is one very small (very small!) parade which lasts about 15 minutes. My first reaction was, "That's it?"
A few restaurants serve corned beef and cabbage. One place has the early bird special and seniors get another $1 off! A great deal but where's the green beer and party?

Kennedy Space Center
This is my first time here at the Space Center and it was very educational and inspiring. The size of these rockets is amazing. It's hard to believe they can be taken into outer-space.
I recommend that you try to see this on your next visit to Florida.
Note: I don't have Photoshop here on my laptop, but Picasa is working just fine enough. I even signed my name. ::wink::
