There are Places I Remember:

Bradenton, FL

A small city below Tampa on the west coast of Florida, Bradenton is part of the Bradenton/Sarasota area (they share the same airport).  It was “discovered” in 1539 by DeSoto (they have a park named after him) with lots of trails in the mangroves.  Speaking of groves, Tropicana has their headquarters there and one can see railroad cars full of oranges-which eventually become juice by the time they get where they are going.  (Hot sun and rolling track will do that.)  It is the winter home of the Pittsburg Pirates and the Red Barn Flea Market-a great place for antique and collectible hunting, among the strawberries and tomatoes.  Brian and Leon have held many seminars in the area and almost know their way around.


Saying of the Week

I smoke cigars because at my age if I don’t have something to hold onto I might fall down.

George Burns
