Erica's Birthday

Today is Erica Reynoso's birthday. She is my wife, my lover, and my friend...

The PROPHET, by Kahlil Gibran
And a youth said, "Speak to us of Friendship."
Your friend is your needs answered.
She is your field which you sow with love and reap with thanksgiving.
And she is your board and your fireside.
For you come to her with your hunger, and you seek her for peace.
When your friend speaks her mind you fear not the "nay" in your own mind, nor do you withhold the "ay."
And when she is silent your heart ceases not to listen to her heart;
For without words, in friendship, all thoughts, all desires, all expectations are born and shared, with joy that is unacclaimed.
When you part from your friend, you grieve not;
For that which you love most in her may be clearer in her absence, as the mountain to the climber is clearer from the plain.
And let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit.
For love that seeks aught but the disclosure of its own mystery is not love but a net cast forth: and only the unprofitable is caught.
And let your best be for your friend.
If she must know the ebb of your tide, let her know its flood also.
For what is your friend that you should seek her with hours to kill?
Seek her always with hours to live.
For it is hers to fill your need, but not your emptiness.
And in the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures.
For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.

Happy Birthday, Erica ... I love you.

City Planning

Signs warning of bird droppings were posted along a stretch in downtown Orlando this week after cars, benches, sidewalks, plants and even people are hit and covered by the white bird waste, according to a Local 6 News report.

The problem began when city workers removed cypress trees on "bird island" at Lake Eola in Orlando.
The trees had to be removed because the bird droppings were polluting the water, according to the report.

Now, the birds have moved into the city and are covering anything and anyone between Lake Eola and Central Avenue with droppings.

Day at Lake Eola

We spent a wonderful time enjoying the beautiful weather at Lake Eola today. IsabellaRose loved the baby swing and sliding down the slide with her Daddy. We walked around the park and sat in the shade of the palm trees. Lots of people were out with their kids, friends and family. Moments like these make me feel how rich my life is.

  • Money Issue Logo

  • Last weekend CBS Sunday Morning Show devoted the whole program to money. They called it their money issue, like aways it was great. Only this time they wanted to ask their viewers to interact with the show by picking their "Money Issue" Logo. So I ask you the reader to help out in picking their new logo! CBS Sunday Morning
