Good 44º cloudy morning.

Picture of the Day ... perfectly timed! 😁
 

 
 
 
Interesting about Florida

 
Greater Miami is the only metropolitan area in the United States whose borders encompass two national parks. You can hike through pristine Everglades National Park or ride on glass-bottom boats across Biscayne National Park.
 
Saint Augustine is the oldest European settlement in North America.
 
Orlando attracts more visitors than any other amusement park destination in the United States.
 

Florida is not the southernmost state in the United States. Hawaii is farther south.
 
The United States city with the highest rate of lightning strikes per capita is Clearwater.
 
Young aviator Tony Jannus made history on January 1, 1914 when he flew the world’s first scheduled passenger service airline flight from St. Petersburg’s downtown yacht basin to Tampa.
 
Key West has the highest average temperature in the United States.
 
Fort Lauderdale is known as the Venice of America because the city has 185 miles of local waterways.
 
Florida is the only state that has 2 rivers both with the same name. There is a Withlacoochee in north central Florida (Madison County) and a Withlacoochee in central Florida. They have nothing in common except the name.

The relationship between best friends is often fierce and can withstand distance, storms and silence.  Whether we’ve known them all our lives or they are more recently acquired, best friends make tough times bearable, fun times memorable, and memorable times priceless.
When it comes to best friends, they run the gamut. They may be exactly like us or our complete opposite. According to a Pew Research poll, 98% of teens have one or more close friends. And 78% of them say they have one to five close friends.  However, as we move into adulthood, our friendship-making ability changes, along with our priorities.
Whether our best friends are from childhood or later in life varies. But one thing is sure: best friends smooth over the rough edges in life and make the rest of it quite interesting.
No matter how many best friends surround you, get together and celebrate the day!
