Peace River Seafood & Crab Shack where writers who travel on their stomachs “know” they’ve gone to heaven!

American Press Travel News-Bob and Barb May 1st,–Punta Gorda, FL.--Lunch time and all was well with our world! We found the place to quench our fire-lust to go hard on soft-shelled crabs, chew on fresh, firm shrimp, eat a piece of fish that no one had to make excuses for, and slide some lobster bites past a very excited palate on the way to a happy belly! We had a Corona, good chat, appetizers of Calamari with aeoli, and really enjoyed our al fresco meal and beautiful servers, friendly attitudes, both men and women. Great place to “go seafood” all the way-no excuses-

Everything was perfect here!!!!!!!call em at:  941-505-8440

Soft shell crabs when done correctly and are eminently fresh can’t be beat!

The Worden’s: Specialists in making things grow organically! Experts in making great friends and neighbors. Experts in feeding thousands with fresh, healthy produce!

APtravelnews-Punta Gorda, FL. April 22nd, Bob and Barb “Stopping to Smell the Roses, Sunflowers and gathering organic produce. It can really come together for the residents of a community, when truly dedicated, knowledgeable, people and earth caring folks move into their neighborhood. One of the high-benefits of being a travel communicator is that occasionally, you meet a person or a couple who really are deeply immersed into what they do, and do it “well.” The husband and wife team of Chris Worden, Ph.D and wife Eva Worden, Ph.D are the Co-Founders of the organic Worden Farm. Eva said she and her husband bought approximately, 80-acres in 2003 and put their education and training into the realm of reality through a community supported agriculture (CSA) farm membership program (we met several of the thousands of people that have been faithful students of the Worden’s at the weekly market for members, and there was a lot of love and respect in the air).

The workshops, farm tours, university courses, conferences and community greening projects within the United States and internationally, are hallmarks in the lives of the Worden’s, and the thousands who have learned how to create and respect their own agricultural organic plots, as well! The joy we felt, and the drive and engagement of the Worden’s and helpers, were able to be seen reflected in the faces of the many folks who came to pick out their vegetables for their part of their farm membership. Farmers markets and their (CSA) farm membership program, has become a healthy and integral part of the Punta Gorda and surrounding communities. Check the Worden Farm out at www.wordenfarm.com

 

The Quest for Best Ice Box/Cooler Led to Techniice The Rolls Royce of All Coolers

APtravelnews-April 9th,-Port St. Lucie, FL Bob & Barb “On The Road Again” searching for the best ice box/cooler in the world! Looks like we found it! The Techniice unit, based on our trial between all others, including every Yeti Model held 50-percent of its ice over 24-hours sitting on a hot pavement. All the rest bled out their waters.

Early ice boxes / coolers / chilly-bins / Ice chests were made from mostly metal and sometimes wood. The Early Esky brand Ice Boxes were made from galvanized sheet metal on the inside. A lot has changed since then. Techniice™ Chilly Bins / ice boxes / coolers / chests employ the best of modern technology, are made using commercial grade UV stabilized High Density Polyethylene and manufactured using Rotational Moulding and then injecting high performance multi compound insulation under extreme pressure to the walls and the lids of our ice boxes/coolers. There are several models some have wheels, some do not! We wanted the unit without wheels for our boats. 

Techniice™ ice box coolers , Ice chests and Reusable Dry Ice packs are recognized around the world for their legendary ability to retain temperature in the world’s harshest climates. Techniice Products are built to full commercial specifications for transporting perishables over long distances for extended duration’s. Techniice™ iceboxes & Reusable dry ice packs are used by some of the world’s largest companies and government organisations including Qantas (Jet star), Meals on wheels, McDonald’s, BHP, Air France and of course the Atlanta and Beijing Olympics to name a few. Believe me, I had so many different so-called coolers, ice chests, etc. The best, the very best “promise” is the Techniice units! See: customerservice@techniice.com  Go: www.techniice.com
