I live in a small town SOUTH of Cocoa Beach. (Next one south of Patrick Air Force Base...excuse me, now it's Patrick Space Force Base.)

These days, in Brevard County, it's really hard to find cops with such a bad attitude as the one you described. Quite the contrary, our current Sheriff is quite clear in his advice to citizens to protect themselves and their property by all lawful means when the situation warrants it. And our police pretty much are all right there with him, in every department in every city. The result is that even the worst parts of the county have much lower crime rates than any neighboring county. Word has gotten out to the miscreants and those with criminal intent that Brevard is the wrong county to set up shop in.

I have been in an out of Atlanta a number of times, in my 20’s I honestly didn’t think it snowed out there , we have had a couple light snows at my elevation.
And yes people can’t drive for shit here either, used to drive through Katy to get there , and Houston which was my regular trip.
Cheers

I did hear they were considered somewhat a flooding risk. Is this insurance-grade "aww dammit" nuisance flooding or "OH SHIII...we all gonna die" apocalyptic flooding?

that place has GOT to be the hottest place on earth.

Not even the hottest in the USA ... though, I like warmth, so it's not a drawback for me.

Weird aside: We're covered in snow right now, and for the first time in many-many years, I'm absolutely loving it. I use to get excited about snow when I was a kid, but then I got into the cringe faze ... now I'm feeling like a kid again! Meh, in another month I'll probably be dreaming of the summer lol.

I've been here since 1975. When Ron Jon's was a small wood building. Today it's a stucco palace and retail tourist trap/shop. The glass bank in front of Brassy's was torn down years ago, and Brassy's was long gone before that. The last use of the glass bank was as a home base by a reclusive rich guy. He lived in it. City council didn't like that very much and tried to evict him.

I saw Leslie West play at Brassy's. I remember it was LOUD.

The port used to be a cool place, lots of local color and people just making an ocean based living. Today, thanks to Disney (Gag me...) and Royal Caribbean, they have made the place cleaner, more modern, and very boring.

@Mitchell Pearrow I lived in Atlanta for a total of 4 months. Long story. But from Jan through April in the very late 80's. BTW, it's farther north than Dallas, it just doesn't appear so. It snowed like I was in CO. Snow plows out, drifts along the steep roads. I don't know how often, or how much is normal, but my one winter there sucked! :lol:

Speaking of Texas ... anyone else love JR Ewing?



Never watched it. Most of my friends did, but I refused. It was a nigh time soap opera as far as I was concerned. If I remember right, it was on Friday nights. Because lots of my friends wouldn't show up to parties and stuff until after Dallas. :confused:
We were late teens to earlier 20's during its run. WTF, TV over parties and girls?

Ron DiMenna. Yes, his history is easy to Google. Rumor has it that the original Ron Jons shop was...."creatively financed"....and sold items that didn't have a thing to do with cash registers and receipts...

All I know about the Houston area is 100% humidity and 105 degrees in the warm months.

I'm a little younger than you, so my introduction to the show was through my folks. I also remember Knots Landing and Falcon Crest being on every week :lol:
