The very successful introduction of highest quality of street-legal electric carts in the Upper Florida, and middle Florida Keys, as well, has spawned huge interest in their introduction, state-wide in Florida.

As a result of the strong interest in the use of quality carts for wedding, special events and even food tours to name a few of the venues these carts help enhance, Islamorada Custom Carts has expanded to the Treasure Coast.

COMING SOON, upcoming information over the next two weeks!

American Press Travel News-Bob and Barb “On the Road Again.” June 14th-June 17th–We contacted our very favorite tourism specialist; Georgia Carter Turner to develope a visit itinerary to DeLand Florida, located in Volusia County. We rolled in to town on June 14th, and moved into a very comfortable apartment at True Trail Farms – Mike and Kathy Densmore, the owners were very welcoming and we found they loved farm animals and they had a bunch of them. We were also greeted by the goats, turkeys and more chickens than Kentucky Fried could have handled. DeLand is a bit like old time Florida meeting up with the modernity of today! After settling in at True Tails Farms, we headed into town to the Half Wall (half the wall was covered by beer taps) for a delightful dinner. For dessert, we went next door to Davids Sweet Things. David was the most  affable and interesting man we encountered during our adventure to DeLand.

GO: and see all the greatness that this area has to offer. (end of part 1 of our DeLand Adventure, see part two shortly)

Found my Dog, Adopt A Rescue Dog, God Says So!

American Press Travel News-June 7th-TN–Well, Barb and I said that since Terry passed five years ago: “If a dog finds us, thats when we would have found our dog.” So, Teddy found us. He is our new son now! What is his breed: He is a Maltese, Bolognese Bichon mix. But, whatever he is called, he is a fabulous 7-pounds of personality, love and action.  Teddy (after Teddy Roosevelt) really is a hunter at heart. No squirrel goes untreed, no deer not jumping the fence to get away from little/big Teddy, a terror to Chipmunks and our raider crows cleaning out the seeds at the songbird feeders are immune from the speedy dash of a dog who really doesnt know his true size {7-pounds acting liker 150-Mountain Bernese) as his pell mell dash and raucous bark scares all in his path. Today, a few million Americans buy or rent RV’s so they can take their pets with them on vacations. Although, several national motels and hotels recognize the value of allowing travelers to bring their pets, when checking in to their rooms. Its just good business! A pet owner is usually a much happier, even healthier than a non pet owner. Lots of smiles, extra exercise and general joy de vivre can add extra life to pet owners. Also, a dog has senses that are far and away more powerful and sensitive to danger, than a human. A barking dog helps deter ner-do-well’s from your property and your door. My previous dog, Terry saved my life when sensing a giant tree was about to fall and literally pulled me away from where the huge tree crashed to earth. Terry was a litter-runt, throw-away. We got him at a shelter that would have done him in. Instead we had a loving, wonderful companion. We had 14 great years, before his kidneys gave out. Terry was buried with a hand-carved, stone marker on our ranch. Teddy can never take his place. So we have started a new chapter with this little dog. I’ve been smiling alot, again! Adopt go: FOCCAS— Focus On Cumberland County Animal Safety. Great dedicated people who truly love and want to assist all pets who need another home with love!!!

Homemade Guitar Maker, Dale Arthur Transforms Cigar Boxes To a New life Making Music

Dave loves making guitars out of boxes. especially cigar boxes. He explained that these boxes have the right wood for a good sound off the strings. Also they are often relegated to the junk pile. He saves them and the early graphics they are embossed with for posterity, and as repurposed for music.
Some of the many guitars made of various boxes saved by Dale for repurposing to usable, fun music makers.
