Pending Financial crash? Impossible!

Since the beginning of last year, about 16 months, Uber stock has risen 84%, yet the company loses about $200 million—per month. For the same period, Tesla stock has risen 800%, but the company has never made a profit if you don’t count energy grants it’s received from the federal government. Then there’s Bitcoin, which has risen from $7,300 last January to $57,000 at this writing.  And nobody even understands what it is.

Redefined Spaces for Comfort and Value

As we have now crossed the one year mark of temporary shutdowns, stay at home, work from home, school from home, and all the other unusualness that came from trying to remain safe from this pandemic, moving forward redefining and renaming our home spaces have the potential to be far more than a trend.  Additionally, having newly defined space both inside and outside can even add extra value to your home.

A pair of measures introduced into the Florida legislature are aimed at protecting business in the state from unscrupulous or opportunistic lawsuits related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Filed on Jan. 6 by Florida State Senator Jeff Brandes, SB 72, the Civil Liability For Damages Relating To COVID-19 would protect business, charities, educational institutions, “governmental entities” and religious institutions from a COVID-19-related claim.

Aripeka Stone Crab Company: Mermaid and Captain Venture

In the small fishing Village of Aripeka there is a great source of fresh and frozen stone crabs along with other seafood. The Aripeka Stone Crab Company was started in 1985 and their store is located just before the bridge to Norfleet Bait & Tackle. The Aripeka Stone Crab Company is also a commercial stone crab fishing operation, so the stone crabs do not come any fresher.
