New Hope Fall Festival

 Had a blast at the New Hope Wesleyan Church Fall Festival in Hudson, FL..

Everything was free and fun was had by all that came and enjoyed the event. Hay rides, various games and a great band. A bonfire was the night capper for those who came back and enjoyed the music provided by Patrick Stanton and smores galore.

On a personal note was a very blessed and a great reminder of the love Jesus has for his people. Seeing the smiles on kids for winning a toy to getting off the hayride with a smile from ear to ear. Thanks Pastor Eleanor Ladd for letting us help you with this great event and for the other members of various churches coming out to help make this a great success.

Saturday with the wife in Sarasota.

It was my birthday weekend and decided to travel to the Amish Country in Sarasota.

We decided to see the Para Surfers by the skyway as we headed south first.
Nice View from side of road

Went to the Pumpkin Festival next and enjoyed some old town farm fun and a little craft fair. Got to help reset a tent that the wind blew over as soon as we got there, so hopefully wasn't a sign of things to come.


Time to go get some fuel for our bodies and have a nice sit down at Yoders Amish Restaurant.

Got Denise to try some Fried Okra.
Thats a where is the napkin to spit it out look!

Great fun with the wife and some great god sightings while we were out and about the Tampa Bay area.

Bok Towers and Spook Hill

So once again I talked Denise into another one day get away. Was gonna go to Bok Tower and then head home, but will reading about Bok I noticed a link to Spook Hill near Bok Tower. Being the Graveyard rabbit that I am, we left earlier and made it to Lake Wales and found Spook Hill.

After reading the sign and following directions we indeed travelled in reverse uphill while our van was in neutral. Being the natural pressimist that i am I tried doing this farther from the indicated line, and we still travelled uphill but at a slower pace than the first. We really had fun here and tried different ways but we did travel like they said we would. Worth the early start to our trip.

More on Bok Tower soon

And Justice was served?

A nurse died Monday after 42 years in a coma following a brutal rape, in a case that led India to ease some restrictions on euthanasia.

Aruna Shanbaug suffered brain damage and had been in a vegetative state in a Mumbai hospital since being strangled with a dog chain and sexually assaulted by a hospital worker in 1973.

The 66-year-old Shanbaug had suffered a bout of pneumonia in recent days and was on a ventilator, officials at King Edward Hospital in Mumbai told the Press Trust of India news agency.

Shanbaug was attacked by a ward boy in the basement of the hospital where she was discovered 11 hours later, blind and suffering from a severe brain stem injury.

Left bedridden, she spent more than four decades being cared for by a team of doctors and nurses at the hospital.

Her attacker was freed after a seven-year jail sentence.
