I was born in a miserable little town called Friendship, NY. Cuba is right next door to us, go figure! Friendship was originally called Bloody Corners due to all the fights on the main street outside the Friendship Hotel. Nice, huh? Nothing like placing a sign up and saying you are now entering "the friendly place to live". (WhatEVER)
It's one of those places you drive by and don't even give it a second thought!
We moved to Jacksonville, FL when I was 6 so I have been here for 32 freaking years! Crud! And I have a stupid birthday next week that is just grinding in the fact that I am getting old. Again. And it's still in the 70s and I have not even had dead grass yet this year. BOO!

I'm born in Manhattan. In 1974 I moved to Miami and I've been here ever since. I miss New York City with a passion, but I just love Florida. While I consider Florida my home, N.Y.C is where my heart is. It will always be my home town.
Never, never give up!

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie ----------------------- Kierae - happily maintaining since 1/2009
