Phone(407) 951-8662Fax(407) 951-8665 I just had lunch at a great restaurant I never knew existed. It's called Pickles in Longwood and it was wonderful. The service was fast and friendly. It's definitely a shout out to any New York transplants here to Florida. Go there for a little taste of home.I had the BLT on rye which was very tasty with big pieces of bacon and crispy lettuce. I also had the Matzo Ball soup made fresh with a big, fat matzo ball in the middle and chunky carrots in a yummy broth. Very tasty! But my favorite (aside from the sandwich) was the potato salad. Yummy. You gotta try this place!  They have a full menu and even do catering. http://www.picklescatering.com/index.html

McDonalds Food

I'm not sure if I'm imagining it but I seem to recall McDonald's being fairly good. Of course your talking about when I was a teenager so I guess that doesn't count for much. But I feel confident in saying that their food just plain sucks now. It's bland and tasteless and, worst of all, doesn't fill you up. Have you every noticed your hungry like an hour or two after you eat it. And don't forget the meal you had at the burger place was chock full of calories.

Even eating a plain hamburger and small fries is over 1,000 calories!

To add insult to injury the food (if you dare to call it that) is expensive. For the price they charge have something better for you. There are tons of excellent choices out there, you don't have to settle for this squashed, high calorie, tasteless junk anymore. Revolt America! Refuse their junk food! Tell them your not going to fall for their propaganda anymore!

Say no to the burger and send it back to the crap pile of history!

Me and my niece stopped by the Dandelion Communitea Cafe this afternoon and it was great. I had the Giddyup which is the tempeh chili and my niece had the grilled cheese. The chili was fresh and flavorful. I it was also surprisingly filling. I really enjoyed it.

The grilled cheese was very tasty too.

If you are looking for something different in downtown Orlando you should check it out. They are located at 618 N. Thornton Ave, phone 407 362-1864.

"... with contact as gentle as a baby’s breath he ran his fingers along the flesh of her arm. Jillian held her breath, fearful and excited at the same time. It had been at least two years since she’d had good sex, but should she be having sex with him? Ed scooted closer, spooning against her back."
Over the Moon by Michelle Marquis
“Take her down,” he told his men. Ginger was dragged to the forest floor twisting and fighting like a wildcat. Nemesis stood over her as an evil smile spread across his lips. His smile was dark menace showcasing his long, thick fangs. Someone from behind the general helped him off with his cloak and armor revealing a dark muscular torso perfect in every detail. Then the soldiers were all over her..."Nemesis by Michelle Marquis

I am very disturbed by how young women are portrayed all over the media and in the entertainment industry. Images of Miley Cyrus and her gyrating ass covered in pot leaves, Selena Gomez singing "If you want it come and get it", and Brittany Spears on the cover of Rolling Stone with a provocative "come hither" stare, all come to mind. All of this stuff smacks of exploitation, whether that be the entertainer exploiting themselves (Miley) or being exploited by others who stand to make money off that exploitation. Yeah moms and dads of these kids, I'm talking about you.

It's all really unseemly. I mean come on, if a man over 18 were to have sex with any one of these girls (before they too were 18) he'd be arrested and put away for years. But it's perfectly okay to package them as sexually available and more than willing for profit. Where is the line here?

I think as a society we have become permissive. It's ubiquitous so we don't even see it anymore, let alone care. All the voices who objected were silenced by the huge, quite vacuum of complacency.

I'm deeply concerned that the sexualizing of young woman has an unintended ripple effect in the world. Those images are seen all over, in every country. Some men can't make the distinction between what is for profit and what is truth. Some will see these ads and make the deduction all young woman are up for grabs. And are they so wrong, it's that what we're selling.

I don't know. Maybe it's me but the buying and selling of women all over the world seems to have increased. I don't remember the scale of human trafficking being this widespread in the 70's and 80's. Is the entertainment industry creating an appetite for younger and younger girls?

 I think it is.

Some of these young women have spoken out and said they don't mind being portrayed that way. I would argue what do you know at 13? Or 15? Or 20 even? I think any type of exploitation has a profound impact on those that are being used.

Even if they think it's all fun and games while they're doing it.

I’m always on the lookout for great new shows. I can remember a few decades ago when movies were the top in entertainment but not any more.  Now TV has taken over and the shows are GREAT. The acting is fresh and unexpected, the talent is believable and interesting, and the stories are filled with excitement. Great examples are The Walking Dead, Manhattan and now, my new favorite How To Get Away with Murder (ABC)

Check out Viola Davis, she is AWESOME!

Whole episodes How to get away with murder

My newest rant is about the horror movie Annabelle . I have not seen this movie yet but I might because I love tormenting myself with silly horror movies. Please observe the doll above and take special notice of how profoundly ugly she is...this will be on the test :)

Okay first off let me say that I've been watching horror movies all my life. It's a sickness really and one I'm sort of proud of. For those of you who have read my books, you'll probably notice horror elements all over the place. I no doubt need a shrink but refuse to see one because there is nothing wrong with me. At least that's my story for today.


I've seen some damn scary haunted dolls. Anyone for the Twilight Zone's Talking Tina? Not to mention the episode call "The Dummy". There was also "Chucky" and many others I'm not going to get into. So scary dolls and doll-like creations are nothing new.

But with this movie I feel like they aren't even trying. Who among us would tolerate this ugly thing in our house for one minute? Who wouldn't stuff it into the nearest trash can and drive it to the dump themselves? Who would put it in their child's nursery? No one in their right mind. This thing gives ugly dolls a bad name.

Now, like I said, I haven't seen this movie but it's likely they CAN'T get rid of the doll and then I say YAWN. Nothing is more boring than the predictable. It's been done. If that is not the case, this movie is silly because of the ICK factor of the doll. No one wants this doll. Trust me.

I think the movie would have been better served if the doll was pretty, not a huge (I'm guessing three feet tall) hulking demon -looking thing wearing a weird white dress. Just throwing that out there. Pretty dolls are more disarming.

Happy almost Halloween my darlings :)
