So yeah, it’s been a while but I’m back… so let’s forget the last two months of my ass dragging. Since the last time I wrote, the season has changed and we’re now immersed in a full-blown winter freeze. This, after Melissa and I returned from an incredible road trip down to Florida where the temps averaged 75 each day and the sun was always out. Now for a little indulgent blog promotion: You can catch that whole trip on our other blog here. Enjoy.

Now back to RI.

Like any city in any state anywhere in the world, life goes on. And such is the case for Rhode Island. Contrary to my own belief this blog wasn’t missed much by the masses but considering the condition of the economy and the unemployment rate I think people have a little on their minds. In a time of extreme unrest and confusion, the one shining light that we all can look forward to, regardless of political affiliation, is the upcoming inauguration of President Barack Obama. I’m not leaving the house that day and I’ll be writing about my thoughts and views of this historic event. Join me, won’t you?

From Washington DC and Florida Road Trip

As you can imagine, being a coastal state, RI is very summer oriented but don’t be fooled by the cold weather. Rhode Islanders in the winter are as social as Floridians but we have to be more creative with what we do. For instance, in Florida people can get up on a weekend morning and head to the beach for a little sun and fun in the ocean. We Rhodies might head to Julian's Restaurant for a fantastic brunch or the RISD Museum for "Free for All Saturday". The last Saturday of the month, get in FREE!

New Topic: Facebook. What a freaking phenomenon! I almost have too much to say so I’ll try to keep it short. It seems Facebook is succeeding where Myspace falls short; it’s actually bringing people together. Yeah - you might say Myspace brought people together, but most of those unions were of the “hookup” variety… unless it was your cousin or an old school friend who now lives in Poughkeepsie, and even then there still may have been a “hookup” ewww. Facebook is reuniting old friends, classmates and family like no other social networking site has done before. Kudos and a tip of the hat to you, Facebook.

I’m off to pick up Melissa for our daily lunch rendezvous. I love this time of day. Wish me luck, I’m about to go into the frozen tundra that is Little Rhody.

Hopefully my posts won't be so spread out. Every couple of days is the goal. Wish me luck on that. :)
