Christmas in the Keys

December 10, 2008

If you are one of the lucky ones that have 10 to 12 days off during the holidays you should consider spending a few in the Keys.  After enjoying the cold weather and warm fires with your family why not fly to a warm climate and enjoy the Keys with few tourist.  It’s a great time to enjoy the islands.

Price Comparison Site

November 24, 2008

I’m going to take this opportunity to hype a site that has nothing to do with Key West but that I believe has a lot of potential to make life easier for millions of Americans.  It’s called Local Price and is a site that compares prices and features of services – not products.  It’s a great site for anyone that has a home, a pet, or a life and can use a tool that will simplify that life a little.  If you’re looking for limo prices, a dog walker, or several other commons services is worth checking out.

Cooling off in the Keys

September 18, 2008

Thanks to a few big storms and the coming of fall the weather has been getting real nice here lately, especially at night.  And ain’t that the best time to be in Key West anyway?  Fantasy Fest is coming soon and it’s time to find a place to sleep – when you do sleep – and get your party paint ready.

Leaving Key West

August 7, 2008

So I’m heading north out of Key West for the annual family trip when the car overheats.  I stop in some place called Suwanee.  Not the same suwanne as we have in north Florida.  Anyway a really nice guy in an autoshop/gas station off of hwy 85 stays about three hours late working on my car so that I and the family can get back on the road.  Cool guy.

Colorado Vacation

May 29, 2008

The perfect life is to live in Key West during the winter and Colorado in the summer.  That way you could hike all day in the summer and sail all winter in the Keys.  Maybe you have the means to do this or maybe you’ll have to settle for a Colorado vacation and a Key West vacation for now.  Both are great destinations.  My new Colorado site, linked above, has a lot of fun things to do in Colorado including the best places to see and best things to do. 

Key West Ringback Tones Now Available

December 3, 2007

Now you can get send the sound of Key West to your friends via ringback tones.  By downloading sounds from Jimmy Buffett, Alan Jackson, and Bob Marley you can bring a little bit of the Keys into your daily grind and a smile to the face of those that call you.

Ringback Tones are sounds that play when someone calls you.  So, instead of hearing a ringing they hear the ringback tone you selected instead.  It’s a fun way to bring Key West home. 

The Key West Soap Factory Makes a Splash in the Natural Soap Industry

The Key West Soap Factory Makes a Splash in the Natural Soap Industry – Making Great Soap One Loaf at a Time 

The Key West soap factory makes a big slash as it begins its nationwide marketing expansion. The company has grown by leaps & bounds since appearing 3 times on the Michael Baisden syndicated radio show.

Miami, FL (PRWEB) November 12, 2007 — They Key West Soap factory is fast becoming a household name for natural soap buyers in South Florida. The company has been marketing its products on line, at kiosks and green markets all over South Florida, with many of its customers using the different natural ingredient soap for years.

The company was founded by Warren Spear, a computer consultant by trade who just took an interest in learning how to make soap after being laid off in the aftermath of 911.

After years of buying soap for himself and his family and just not being satisfied with the products. “It just seemed that even the so called natural soaps were still loaded with chemicals, I decided to create something that was high quality, and free of chemicals at an affordable price.”

Spear, and his wife Marcia, started very small and marketed the soaps on the weekends. Customers would come from all over just to buy their favorites. After several months, the client list continued to grow and the couple began to expand their business to meet the new demand. Spear had planned to launch his product nationally later this year, but fate has sped up his time clock.

All of that changed on May 5 2007. One of the customers who came by one of their kiosks was syndicated radio personality Michael Baisden. Mr. Baisden tried the soap and became an instant fan. He contacted Warren to appear on his show and now orders are coming in from all over the country. “It was amazing, we watched our hits go from a few hundred a day to 15,000 hits a day. Michael has really taken a liking to our product, he has had us on his show 3 time since May 5.” Warren is now entertaining national companies looking to carry his line, as well as smaller distributors all over the country.

“This is a dream come true,” said Warren. “I always knew we had a great product and that if we just kept believing and working hard we would be successful.”

Now Warren & Marcia are looking for the right investor to provide the backing for their innovative retail store concept. “We have our sites on some very key domestic markets to start.”

The soaps are made of all natural ingredients and are formulated to address many skin types. “We have soaps that target oily, dry, flaky, and acne prone skin, we even have a line made for dogs.” What makes the soaps special is their strict use of botanicals, essential oils, and other ingredients from the earth.

“The soaps are created recognizing that consumers don’t mind paying a little more for the best quality,” explained Marcia, who oversees the production of the products. “We created a very special process and formula for each soap, so it is now my job to make sure that special care and attention goes in to each bar.”

The goal of the Key West Soap Factory is to provide noticeably high end natural products that are free from synthetic additives. “We are not striving to be the largest soap producer in the country or the world, we simply want to make the best products possible.”

Horror Movies

October 31, 2007

I know everyone is probably enjoying Fantasy Fest right now, but if are not at the party you might consider renting one of these scary movies.  The Shining is my personal favorite but I know other films might be yours.  With the nights getting longer and colder it’s time for a scary movie.
