Dr. Aaron Branham Roush, the board-certified surgeon who practiced at the former Uphoria Medical Spa, is asking the Florida Board of Medicine to let him voluntarily give up his medical license in lieu of other potential action by that disciplinary board.
We had decided the night before to have breakfast in Dunedin, FL before continuing to St. Petersburg, FL to see if Pet Pal had any small dogs for adoption. Pit bulls, mixed pit bulls, pits, pits pits in my juice juice juice! [a reference to the Odd Couple with Tony Randall & Jack Klugman.] I’ll continue later with the Pet Pal experience.
We arrived at the café located near the library. Walking by the side of the building facing Douglas Avenue. After parking in the rear of the building, and while passing through the café’s front courtyard, I noticed many couples having breakfast. One caught my attention. In the seconds I had to spare since I was not going to waste any more time observing their behavior, was a 50+ years old man and a woman perhaps a generation younger. He was stroking her arm slowly from her wrist to her axilla, the part that smells when we perspire, the underside of her upper arm. Her arm pit! I went past them quickly and saw other couples looking up at us. It’s funny how quickly people look away when being caught staring. We entered a nearly empty restaurant. Only one table was taken. Two women sat having breakfast with one typing on an I Pad.
Growing pains indeed! The stock price for his company is at an all time high but soon will decline when he starts to switch to the “newer” Airbus. The management team has been replaced and by 2020 he plans to hire five new mechanics to work out of the Pinellas County market. “We’ve always been safe. And we will continue to work with the FAA and audit our own practices.”
The host of this event was Sen. Jack Latvala, who flies to Bangor, Maine on Allegiant.
From the Marriott, CEO Maurice Gallagher headed to the Sirata Beach Resort in. St. Pete Beach for the company’s annual station meeting. It was the first time in this company’s history that the “annual station meeting” was held outside of Las Vegas, Nevada.
Allegiant is based in Las Vegas where Roulette, and other games of chance are played.
Notice how much Maurice talked about customer service? He claims he invests and “reinvests in our pilots.” Thank G_d, he hired competent flyers or his airline would have been grounded indefinitely if all his growing pains had touched the earth with more force.
Defending Allegiant, the senator actually complained bout the investigative reporting of the Tampa Bay Times.
Copy paragraph “the airlines…” Please see picture below.
Soon after reading this I head a loud dry cough coming from a zaftig waitress who happened to be bent over pushing her breasts almost over her black blouse.
My breakfast hadn’t yet arrived and I began to worry if Typhoid Mary was still alive.
At this point I was reading “No Trump, but presence looms large at GOP event.” Another politician was present at this event, Governor R. Scott of Florida, who wouldn’t mention the missing elephant in the room, instead he talked about “jobs,”‘and chided all the Republican candidates for failing to make that the central campaign issue. I bet he didn’t mention the Florida Panther…
Hair tied in a bun, tattoo on left arm just above the elbow, dressed all black, taking quick nervous short steps while serving customers outside and inside was, “I don’t want to get anyone sick.” As she was saying this she was wiping her nose with a finger, then blowing her nose with a soft paper product, then wiping her hands on her ample gluteus maximus. All this behind the counter near the small prep area.
She flew past us on her way out the other door that still slams shut. She returned to enter an order and coughed yet again. I leaned back, turned my head to the right to see if she was the same suspect. “Now she’s here to contaminate this area,” I told Michele.
By now I had seen her cough into her hand, grab a carafe, pour coffee, wipe her nose with her index finger various times, clean her hands on her ass and not once did she wash her hands. “Where’s the owner,” I asked Michele. “Are you going to say something to our waitress about her colleague?
The bill arrived and Michele hadn’t even been given a refill! “Please ask me if I want coffee,” she tells me, “before bringing the check.”
Listening to the music playing in the background was Sting’s Every Breath You Take…I’ll be watching you at 9:45 A.M. A coincidence and ironic because I was watching her and scribbling notes on top of No Trump, but …
And then three ladies walked in. Mother,daughter and granddaughter. “Where do you want to sit,” Grandma asked the baby.
Euphemisticallycalling this a habitat conservation plan is pure bull, Florida bull, Barron & Collier bull, simply developer bull excrement. This is just another con job by the state of Florida against a real American. The Florida Panther!
Who will benefit from the incidental take of a federally listed species? Here are their names:
Liesa Priddy, whom Florida Gov. Rick Scott appointed to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission in 2012;
Florida Gov. Rick Scott;
Priddy’s JB Ranch;
Two sugar companies, Alico and King Ranch;
the Half Circle L Ranch;
Pacific Tomato Growers;
and the Barron Collier Partnership.
and Collier Enterprises.
One of the petitioners is voting for this plan because she owns the land where she wants to cull, kill or putting it nicely… for the incidental takeoffederally listed species. Not only does she own this property, she was appointed to the post by Gov. Rick Scott in 2012 just so she could write up a plan to destroy the habitat of the Florida Panther in exchange to build a “new city” in the habitat of the Florida Panther. To authorize the take resulting from the residential and commercial development and earth mining activities.
Isn’t this a conflict of interest Liesa Priddy?
Liesa Priddy considers the Florida Panther a nuisance because she allows the cat to kill her cattle. Why not build a HUGE wall, one maybe 10 feet high, paid by the Florida Panther with its blood. Hire a developer who knows how to make money embezzling it from idiots who believe in the Art of the Steal. He surely can convince the poor and ignorant to vote for him in exchange for billions of hectares for their poor children in this new city the Governor of Florida might just call …Panther City, but… since Rick Scott is such a nice guy he might allow the developer to instead name the city after his favorite charity.
Out of her kindness for just “incidentally killing” a few Panthers, she and the others have agreed to leave a portion of the land they take away from the bothersome cat so that it can roam free around fences, walls, buildings, highways, mining pits, and humans.
Are these new humans perhaps refugees from Syria or rich refugees from the clutter of urban life in the United States of America?
So please let the Feds, also known as … Fish and Wildlife Service before April 25, 2016 … what you think of this idea to allow the Commissioner of Fish and Wildlife to take incidentally a federally listed species off her land for the good and profit of Liesa Priddy, and her ranch and the other rascals who have perhaps lost not a cattle since some of them grow sugar and tomatoes and the others just hide under a name Barron Collier Partnership and Collier Enterprises.

Would there be an uproar if we instead allowed the Commissioner and her cronies in this incidental take of federally listed species, to remove all Cubans who support Fidel Castro from Florida? How about we start with Miami, Florida, Governor Scott?
“Nice try to disrupt Soaring Paws you half tard,” the message stated. “But as usual Canadians can’t do anything properly. All your stupid attempts failed and the extra attention just acquired more support for us.” Albert Lonzo Adam III Continue reading →
Last year on a Saturday morning in September, before the sun rose I left to go fishing at Picnic Beach in Old Tampa Bay. It was so early I decided to stop on the Courtney Campbell Causeway’s shared path bridge to enjoy a quiet sunrise over Old Tampa Bay.
After enjoying seeing the rising sun as I walked towards the east, I turned back at the halfway point of the bridge to return to the parking area along the causeway.
Since I still had time to kill before meeting my family at the beach, I continued walking along the causeway taking pictures of all the garbage that was left strewn on the parking spots.
Here are just a few pictures of all the beer, liquor and other garbage people left behind after getting wasted the night before. All this trash could end up in Tampa Bay if not for the people who work here picking up the mess these uncaring beings leave behind.
And of course some of this garbage is already edging closer to the water.
Maybe you don’t want to know this but please continue reading A Little Perspective in Sunday’s Tampa Bay Times, 2/7/2016 to see what a few volunteers were able to remove from the waterways and surrounding areas in and around the Hillsborough River watershed. Let’s Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful.
And if you click and read the whole section of A Little Perspective you’ll find an interesting statistic about the sex lives of those who support Donald Trump.
It starts with a bottle cap picked up from the side of the road. It continues with a plastic bag fished out of a drain pipe. And it dramatically improves Tampa Bay, the body of water that gives identity to our region.
Last month, 302 volunteers removed 16,720 pounds of trash from our waterways and surrounding areas in and around the Hillsborough River watershed. The Trash Free Waters Partnership is part of a national effort by the EPA to bring together public, private and nonprofits to keep our waterways clean. Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful (one of us — Debbie — is executive director) and Nestle Waters North America (the other of us — Kent — is the natural resource manager) were glad to be able to lead this effort. This year, the cleanup took a pre-emptive approach, removing land-based litter at the source — in and around the conduits that feed into the Hillsborough River.
That cigarette butt on the ground may seem small, but consider:
• 80 percent of marine debris comes from land-based sources.
• Every little item makes a difference. 900 yards of fishing line was recovered at the 2015 Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful Hillsborough River & Coastal Cleanup, according to a University of Florida study.
• There are an estimated 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic in the world’s oceans, weighing 269,000 tons, according to a study published in the journal PLOS One.
A healthy Hillsborough River Basin is vital to our quality of life. More than 350,000 Floridians rely on it for their drinking water. All it takes is one big rainstorm to wash all of the garbage on the side of the roadinto our waterways. But the rain cannot wash away trash that isn’t on the ground.
That small piece of litter on the side of the road may seem inconsequential. But what we as a community decide to do with it is the key to preserving the marine ecosystem that so many of us love and treasure. Pick it up. Put it in the trash or recycling bin.
