🚘This new building will have a parking lot for flying cars

Last year's triumphant winners, the Blue Flames.


It’s April so maybe you’ve heard,

from a friend or from a little bird:

the Day of Thrones events

of years past were intense.

We decided to put on a third.


It’s all ages, kinda like field day,

Imagine the games that we will play.

We’ll have contests of brawn

and brains on the lawn

at Margaret Pace Park on the bay.


Now write down April 22nd

because that’s the day you’ll be beckoned.

It’s from 10 to 3


to join a team with pals or a friend.

Brightline train struck a man on Sunday

on the tracks passing through Delray.

He’s the sixth to have died

Everyone stay off the tracks, ok?



If you drive here you feel “fight or flight.”

But Miami was named “Least Uptight

City” in the US

based on (more or less)

hashtags that may not be quite right.
