Official Post from Darrin Bell: Just drawn: Police keep using deadly force when they don't have to. Especially when those people are black. Two summary executions in two days: First Baton Rouge police shoot and kill Alton Sterling, who had not brandished the weapon he was carrying in his pocket, and the very next day, a Minnesota

Treasured Missives from Mom

I keep this with me, on my phone, because in short form, it embodies the indomitable, fireball spirit that is my Mom as well as her desire for me to know I am loved.

Love takes many forms and sometimes many years to apprehend.

Some loves are warm and predictable. Others are prickly and require work. Some loves are easily palpable. Some stand the test of time. There is a full spectrum, a multiplicity of ways to love and be loved, some complex, others more easily apprehended.

But that's older me talking. Younger me had a very black and white view of what a parent's love should be.

If I could speak to the young person I was between 15 and 30 years old, I would say, "hold on, just trust... Life has dealt that woman a hand many, if not most, would crumble under. And she has not. YOU need time to grow, time to see a longer perspective."

I wonder if I had appeared as an older me if younger me would have even listened.

It is humbling to look back with the realization that, indeed, I was loved. I am loved. Now, I am listening and I love my Mom with a kind of wonder that fills me with joy and makes me laugh at my Self.

She is really a little warrior, a spitfire not to be trifled with. And she loved her children with the same spirit.

I've adapted a "super soil" recipe for indoor use which does not preclude the use of top dressing and liquid fertilizers further down the line.

Favorite Quotes:

“I wasn't born to be a fighter. I was born with a gentle nature, a flexible character and an organism as equilibrated as it is judged hysterical. I shouldn't have been forced to fight constantly and ferociously. The causes I have fought for have invariably been causes that should have been gained by a delicate suggestion. Since they never were, I made myself into a fighter” -- 
MARGARET ANDERSON

"Women have always been an equal part of the past. We just haven't been a part of history." --

Open dining room, friendly, attentive service. Will definitely return. Grilled Grouper and sautéed fresh spinach satisfied my desire for a gluten-free, grain-free meal. Other options available (blackened, fried). My dining companions enjoyed their fresh Florida Stone Crab (warm) and Captain's Choice Seafood Platter (swordfish, salmon and tuna). My companions enjoyed their salad bar selections without complaint or a desire for anything else. I thought it left a bit to be desired as very few items were "fresh" and not pre-prepared. I would like to see fresh lettuce, instead of precut bagged lettuce. A variety of fresh vegetables instead of the pre-packaged pasta salad, potato salad, three bean salad and pickled beets would satisfy my inner fresh foodie. The atmosphere of the dining room could be improved with warmer lighting. Sterile LEDs are replacing the warmth of the old-style, energy-consuming lights. While you won't feel good about eating in what looks like an operating room (when you are under one of those bright LEDs), some part of you will find comfort in knowing that energy is being conserved. I prefer the aesthetic, though, when eating.

Located on the South side of SRQ (airport) on University Parkway, this is a clean, friendly place to stay in north Sarasota close to New College of Florida, Ringling Museum and South Bradenton. It is a short drive to downtown Sarasota, St. Armand's Circle and Lido Beach, and a straight shot east on University Parkway to all of the new development in Lakewood Ranch. The people who work here are very nice and responsive to Guests' needs and requests. Over the past three years we have stayed here on many occasions and they are pleasantly consistent in their hospitality. Complementary van service is available to and from the airport, including to/from Dolphin Aviation and Rectrix FBOs (pilots rejoice). Rooms are carpeted, always clean and in good working condition. Water is wonderfully hot with good pressure on all floors. Complimentary coffee and tea and plenty of fluffy towels in rooms. Decor is modern, light and airy. Curtains darken rooms and I've never had a complaint about noice so sleep is peaceful. Beds are very comfortable with lots of comfy pillows. While they have what has, across the industry, become the standard hotel breakfast (pre-packaged, defrosted, reheated, self-serve foodstuff), they have a spacious dining room where people can sit together or all by themselves. This room has a vibe all of its own and I enjoy it. Breakfast really is not suitable for gluten-free or diet-conscious folks. You can, though, grab a piece of fresh fruit, tea, coffee and milk. Bring your own mug if you prefer drinking out of a real cup as only paper cups are available.

Intimate performance theatre on New College of Florida's campus with comfortable seats, clean restrooms and eclectic performances. Parking on pavement is limited and, as is with most performimg arts theatres, no food or drink allowed inside the theatre.

Of our table if three, two had Dim Sum and I needed gluten-free, soy-free and starch-free food choices. A variety of Dim Sum choices were available for my companions who enjoyed everything offered. Our waiter asked what I could not have and suggested the Hot and Sour Soup with modifications. It too was delicious and I am very happy for the service provided in a busy restaurant!

This is a beautiful, public access beach close to Sarasota. White sand, wide beach and free public parking. Terrific place for families. On our visit, we watched porpoise just off shore.

Good for group dining. The food portions are generous, so if you have a big appetite, you will be sated. I found the food a bit over-salted with a little too much oil for my taste. There are several meat combinations available as well as an option for vegetable-only hibachi. Our server was attentive and her staff made sure our water glasses were always full. I felt that I was sitting just a bit too close to the hibachi grill, though, particularly when our chef cleaned the grill. A full bar is available along with a separate dining room for non-hibachi table service. There is plenty of parking in the back. Prices range from $14 (vegetables only). Expect about $20 per person without drinks.

Most notable, the service was excellent at a busy time in the late afternoon. With a great view of the beach and a relaxing atmosphere, Mulligan's makes our list for good places to hang out and enjoy some bar food.
