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.


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.

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.

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.

Here is a link to the Paris Hilton in Jail Music Video.  It’s pretty funny to see this spoiled brat get locked up.  I guess she will have to take some responsibility now for her actions like the rest of us.  There are loads of other stupid videos too that are pretty funny.
