This year your vote is of the UTMOST importance!!!  There are multiple individuals running for this office….. most with little or no experience whatsoever.  I am urging you to PLEASE vote for TERI JOHNSTON!!!  (Scroll down and read more, below!)  We love Key West and we know you do too, and we all have a stake on our future here!!!  I ask you to please call in for an absentee ballot.  The info on how to do this is below….. PLEASE CHECK IT OUT along with my reasons for supporting TERI JOHNSTON!!!

NO later than 7 pm on election day, August 28.  TERI NEEDS EVERY SINGLE SNOWBIRD’S VOTE to assure a victory!  If she gets 50% +1 votes, she will become the Mayor….and there would be no need for any run off!   That is what we are aiming for.  I thank you for considering TERI JOHNSTON  as Mayor of Key West!!!   We are all in this together, folks…. And we, who love Key West, want the very BEST leader….and TERI JOHNSON is by and far the VERY BEST OF THE BEST!!!!!  THANK YOU!!!!

                             THE CANCER PERSONALITY…JUNE 22 THROUGH JULY 23

      One of the first things people notice about Cancerians is their kindness, as they belong to one of the most caring and sensitive signs of the zodiac.  This makes them very popular with anyone who likes to feel cherished.  They are considerate, affectionate, and highly emotional.        The typical Cancerian loves being at home, not only because it is cozy and comfy but because it is where they feel safest.  They fill their home with all sorts of precious mementoes and keepsakes that remind them of the past and their loved ones.  They may have cupboards and drawers overflowing with things they no longer need or use, but cannot bear to throw away.  They love antiques and and their collections of treasures that are very nostalgic and sentimental to them.  They love to travel, but are always comforted to be back safe at home surrounded by their cherished items.  Cancerians lead their lives in very crab-like ways….often approaching situations from an angle rather than directly.  They have a tendency to manipulate people into doing what they want instead of making outright requests.  When the going gets tough, or they feel under-appreciated, just like their sign, the crab, they will retreat into their shell.  They are very good at going into huffs and sulks when things don’t go their way.  Being a water sign, Cancerians soak up the atmosphere around them like a sponge.  They are also very sensitive to other’s moods, and will take on the feelings of the person they are talking with. Cancers also have a reputation for being psychic and having gifts of ESP.  They are drawn to water….the beach, the ocean, water sports, pools, boats.                                                                         Family means everything to Cancerians.  If they live far away away from relatives, they will create families, choosing very selected friends  to be part of a close-knit group.  They are always very proud of their ready- made family members and are proud of their achievements.  Those ‘chosen’ family members consider themselves very lucky to be looked after by a Cancerian.      Cancerians are highly emotional, though they have a very shrewd side to them.  This makes them a great judge of character.  Thanks to their strong maternal instinct, which operates whether you are a woman or a man….Cancers are thought of as affectionate, loving and demonstrative.  The down side of this, that sometimes this doting affection becomes stifling and smothering.  They can occasionally cling to people and are reluctant to let them out of their sight.  Cancers struggle to let a relationship come to an end.  They will pretend that nothing is wrong and will try to keep the partnership going for as long as possible, even if it’s making them unhappy.  They find it very difficult to say goodbye!  Cancers are in clover when things are going well in love, but will become moody and tense when they suspect that something’s gone wrong… the bottom immediately falls out of their world.  The very best signs for a Cancerian are Scorpio, Taurus,  Pisces, Libra and Capricorn…secondly, Leo and other Cancerians, too!                                 Cancerians have marvelous business brains, making them a natural candidate for a successful career.  They know what they want from life and they know how to get it.  They aren’t afraid of hard work, but they don’t want to feel exploited.  They are drawn to jobs that involve looking after others… nursing, teaching….the antique trade….Their affinity for history makes them great historians, archivists, archaeologists….They love photography.  Also they are fantastic cooks, and they are drawn to catering, bake shops, and the restaurant business.  They love the idea of greeting their regular customers and caring for them.  Their senses of humor make them rulers of comedy….and are drawn to entertainment.  They prefer working with others rather than working on their own.  Cancers love the good life and owning a comfortable home is key to their happiness.  Financially, they value the things that money can buy and the happiness it brings to loved ones.  They love spending money on those they care about….love making people delight in treats and gifts.  Their strong love with things from the past find them investing in antiques and items made of silver. 

We love our Cancerian Friends and Family Members!!!
