About Me

After shoveling snow in Madison, Wisconsin, for 35 years I moved to the lively vacation town of Delray Beach, where I was only a few minutes from the beach. Recently I moved next door to Boca Raton, where I have the iconic Florida pool.

I am close to Delray Beach’s Atlantic Avenue, one of South Florida’s best places to shop and dine, and to Boca’s upscale plazas; an hour from Miami and a half hour from Ft. Lauderdale. But there’s a lot more of Florida that I want to share with you.

Read about my discoveries and take advantage of the friends and experts who will help me keep the  recommendations coming.
