Key West with Lynda

IF YOU HAVEN’T VOTED YET…. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU DO ON NOVEMBER 3!!


OCTOBER 30 THROUGH NOVEMBER 20, 2020 …. IN KEY WEST WITH LYNDA….

MY DEAR READERS….  We are still at Rose Cottage at Chippewa Lake, Ohio.  Our summer has been a wonderful one…. Life here is much lower key than in Key West where it is go-go-go all the time.  When we got here on June 6, October seemed far away…. I thought the summer would drag… go really slow…. but strangely, it flew by, and before we knew it, July 4 turned into Labor Day… and now Halloween is upon us!  Sure wish there were 48 hours in a day!!!!   Stop the World I want to get off!!!!

VOTE PLEASE….I apologize profusely for this long lull in sending this blog….  I also thank those who must have missed receiving it, who contacted me to find out why I stopped sending it out.  (It is nice to be missed.) In reality, until now, I have lacked motivation to restart …. but with the election happening on November 3,  I got reenergized and I felt compelled to reach out and implore you to VOTE!!!!  NEVER has an election meant more.  There is so much at stake and WE have the privilege to be heard by casting our vote … When Nov. 4 arrives, and if we do not like what the result will be, we will be a big part of the blame…..it will be our fault.  We have heard all the speeches… the good the bad and the ugly!!!!!..We have watched the debates….we know what is going on in our country…. We know  over 220,000 people have died from the Covid-19 virus….more than any other place on earth…… we know our leaders are telling us that it is nearly over…In fact. just the other day, we heard that the president ranked “Ending the Covid-19 Pandemic as one of his main accomplishments.”…. and  We ALL KNOW THIS IS NOT TRUE…. The Virus is FAR from over….. the cases are continuing to accelerate every single day…… .There are so many things more to say, but you know the truth of it all…There are glaring differences between our candidates…. it is up to YOU who ultimately have the chance to choose…. Truth over Lies…. Reason and Calm over Chaos……Hope over Fear…. Kindness over Cruelty.. …. Love over Hate….Compassion over Narcissism….. Actual Plans versus No Plans Whatsoever.. .the differences are profound!.. ….Ask, What do you want our Country to embrace in the future?  You can make the decision with your vote.  If you have an absentee ballot and haven’t yet sent it in…. I believe that it is too late to mail it in… please take your ballot personally, and deliver it to a Drop Box at 530 Whitehead St. ….  Or go in person to vote….  YOUR VOTE…. AND EVERYONE ELSE’S VOTE COUNTS!!!!  I request that you PLEASE contact everyone and remind them to vote….!!!  Note: I have my personal views and you do too…. I hope you will try to respect my views as I try to respect yours.  The MAIN thing is…. No matter what candidate or candidates you support,  the important thing is to VOTE!!!!!!

THE VIRUS  NEVER STOPS….. When we left KW last June for Ohio, there were only about 80 cases in all of Monroe County and only 3 deaths and hardly any hospitalizations.  We felt safe and protected, and we hoped that would last.  But NO….  There are now over 2.214 cases, and 25 deaths in the County.  And today, the Nation hit a high of 90,000 new cases in one day!   We were warned over and over by the Scientists who KNOW…. that there will be a surge in cases as summer ends and more people are indoors, and that is exactly what is happening…..We have no alternative but to accept the fact that the virus will be around for a long while, but in the meantime we must  try to adhere to the three simple rules that, until we get a vaccine, seem to be the only things that are proven to work….. WEAR A MASK……SOCIAL DISTANCE…..WASH YOUR HANDS!  We have that etched in our minds and yet there are naysayers out there who refuse to listen.  NO ONE is safe….right now,  in fact, even the White House is a hot bed of Covid 19. …. this thing is BAD…. I know people who have had it and they are still suffering from chronic after-effects that are miserable.  There is information that even after one thinks it is long gone, they have challenging lung, liver, kidney, aching pains, and mental conditions that do not go away.  Some of these patients, of all ages, are referred to as long-haulers and they face many problems.  You are all very important to me and I hope and pray that you will be safe…. that you will follow the guidelines and set an example to all around you who refuse to obey and don’t want to help us out.   WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER.  LET’S PLEASE HELP EACH OTHER OUT. 

PLEASE WEAR A MASK…….Freedom comes with responsibility.  We do NOT have the right to put others in grave danger.  For example, driving drunk is not acceptable.  It is a Fact that countries whose citizens respectfully wear masks have had lower infection rates, while our lack of cooperation is driving up our cases.  One careless person can infect a dozens others  before it becomes known.   We will lose this battle while rebellious groups misguidedly insist on their freedom.   I am going to repeat some of what I said in my last blog as these words seem more relevant than ever….. Not wearing a Mask is like being on a sinking ship when you are told to get in a lifeboat.  Would the person say, “I refuse to get in the Lifeboat..  NO ONE is the boss of me, and you can’t make me get off this ship!”  Both Masks & Life Boats can save lives….  We have heard all the arguments from the anti-mask people…. Yes, I know, Masks are hot, glasses fog up, and you  are tired of them….and you may not find them attractive…. (though, as I reiterate…. they do hide wrinkles and I find that some people actually look MUCH better wearing a mask)…. Wearing that mask will help get us through the new normal sooner and back to the good ole Normal when masks are only used for Halloween!  I say to everyone… Get Used to It!  The Mask I wear helps you (and me) and the one YOU wear helps me (and you!).  If national mandates were made and there had been some real consistency to it right from the start…. and if Examples would have been set by our leaders….I KNOW we would all be in much better shape, and America wouldn’t have the #1 worst record in the world in dealing with this virus.

ELLEN STEININGER…. My friend Ellen, is most concerned about the chaos going on in Key West since things opened up.  Locals continue to feel unsafe and she has established a FACEBOOK Page for Safety Reviews.  If you go out and feel that the shop or restaurant you went to was a positive and safe experience and felt comfortable while there…. please post it on this Page.  She requests no ‘bashing’… but if there are places you went to that you were concerned about I think it would be important info for locals to know.  Constructive opinions please.  I also think that as Locals who love Key West, if we do not like what we see in a certain establishment, I think we should have the courage to speak up.  Of course, if you have a bad experience somewhere, you are speaking out by not going there again… and make sure you let the establishment know how you feel.

THANK YOU AND CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WATERFRONT PLAYHOUSE !!!!  The Waterfront Playhouse deserves accolades for presenting  wonderful  radio shows onstage at the Playhouse.    We loved them all!!  Performed live onstage at the Playhouse, they were Broadcast at 8 pm on US1Radio (
https://us1radio.com), and 104.1 FM.   Any donations to help fund other of these events, please visit https://waterfrontplayhouse.org/donate-online.  Or you can call the box office at 305-294-5015 from 9 am to 12 pm, Monday thru Friday.   Stay tuned for the next presentation.  PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU READ ABOUT ALL THE GREAT PLANS THE WATERFRONT PLAYHOUSE HAS FOR YOU!!!!

VOTE FOR THE THREE CRUISE SHIP REFERENDA….
CRUISE SHIP UPDATE…..My heroes are Arlo & Evan Haskell, the Jolly Brothers, David Dunn, Beth Moyes and all those who have worked so hard and dedicated themselves to instrumenting the Cleaner Safer Ships Referenda on our Ballots.  They have fought all those who have monetary self-interests who don’t seem to care about the people of Key West at all and have endured ridiculous lawsuits from people like
the Key West Bar Pilots Assoc. , a group of 4 men who make over $2 million a year bringing large cruise ships to Key West… (and for them, the bigger the cruise ship, the bigger their paycheck)….These 4 men filed  lawsuits in a desperate attempt to take away Key West Citizen’s right to vote on the Nov. 3 referenda.     Like many others…. Until these mega ships stopped coming to Key West, I never realized how awful they were to the environment, our reefs, the water, our air (which should not be polluted) and it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if that oily, sooty residue permeating our air, and covering our homes and porches with its ugliness, has not been responsible for giving so many of us ‘the Key West Crud’ through the years.   Thousands of citizens braved a Pandemic to sign petitions that put the Referenda there.  You MUST agree that EVERYONE deserves the right to be heard on this issue.  The Bar Pilots, AND OTHERS….want to stop you from voting, plain and simple.   Because we want to protect Key West’s Health, environment and economy for future generations, I IMPLORE EVERYONE WHO CARES ABOUT THE FUTURE OF KEY WEST…..TO VOTE YES FOR CLEANER, SAFER, SMALLER SHIPS IN KEY WEST!!!! ( You can contact Arlo at
arlo@safercleanerships.com. )

I do believe that when we all send prayers and good vibes to those in need, those prayers mystically meet and surround those being prayed for.  Sometimes we pray for miracles and the impossible….sometimes we pray to just cope with the results of what happens to those we are praying for.  Sometimes we pray for strength to go on and to accept…sometimes we pray for thanksgiving.  We are in this thing called ‘Life’ together….and we all have power within us to help our fellow man.  Bless you for remembering our loved ones….Prayer changes things!  Let me know if you know of anyone who should be added to this list.

  ** THE SCORPIO PERSONALITY…OCTOBER 23 THROUGH NOVEMBER 22 ***

      I am starting this by saying that some of my best friends are Scorpios….as well as my very best friend, my dear husband Bob!  They are an amazing group….terrific company and possess a fantastic sense of humor.  That being said, Scorpios view life in a very emotional and intense way….and they find it very difficult to express profound feelings that they have.  Scorpios keep their deep feelings buried under the surface.  They have an innate need for privacy and secrecy making them reluctant to let people know how they feel.  This sign is often viewed as being obsessive and it is true that a Scorpio takes things quite seriously.  They are happiest when they are able to concentrate their energies in particular directions, because they need to feel emotionally involved in everything they do.  Otherwise life loses its meaning and purpose.  Once a Scorpio has made up their mind about something, it is very hard to persuade them to change it.  They often have fixed ideas about all sorts of things and can take a very hard line over such topics as capital punishment  and imprisonment.   Despite a Scorpio’s natural loyalty, if you push them too far or double cross them in some way, they will never forget it and they will never forgive you.  They will probably give you the cold shoulder  to exact their revenge.  It is wise not to get on the wrong side of a Scorpio!  A Scorpio’s magnetic charm and powerful personality attract many fans.  People love the fact that ‘still waters run deep’….and when a Scorpio is silent, everyone wonders what they are thinking and go to great lengths to find out.  They know there is lots more going on under the surface than the Scorpio will reveal.

Love is an area that can cause problems for Scorpios as they take it so seriously.  There is nothing superficial about members of this sign, and as a result they need relationships that are deep and satisfying.  One night stand and brief flirtations quickly lose their charm…the Scorpio is looking for something more significant than that, and when they find it they will channel all their energies into it.  They do demand a great deal from their partner, with love and loyalty at the top of the list.  One big Scorpio problem is jealousy and another is possessiveness.  If a Scorpio has been hurt in the past, it can be very hard for him to resolve these issues.  Sex and Scorpio go together like bread and butter.  They place  such great importance on sex because it is such a good way for them to express their feelings.  The best signs for a Scorpio are Taurus, Cancer, Virgo another Scorpio and Leo.  

What a Scorpio does for a living must have meaning and purpose, needing to feel emotionally involved in their career.  Otherwise they will feel unhappy and dissatisfied.  They must believe their work is meaningful…nothing demeaning or boring for them!  They will pour all their energies into their work wanting to do something  that provides endless interest and stimulation.

Scorpios also love to know what’s going on…so they are the eyes and ears enjoying sharing the latest gossip and intrigue.  It is important for them to get on well with their colleagues and that they work in a comfortable atmosphere.  They need positions of power, even though it may be minor…..the thought that everyone else has control but them is devastating!  Scorpios are attracted to law, science, detective work, medicine, research and the like.  They also get great satisfaction from working in the wine trade…especially if they can attend lots of wine tastings.  Scorpios need more money than most…as financial security is very important to them….they also enjoy the power that comes with money.  Living comfortably is of utmost important to the
Scorpio…..In their hearts they know they should have been born with a silver spoon in their mouth…. And if they were not to the manor born, they will do everything in their power to achieve that status symbol.  Investing and accumulating are important to the Scorpio…they are canny investors and love playing the stock market.

***THE  SAGITTARIUS PERSONALITY….NOVEMBER 23 TO DECEMBER 21***

    One of the great things about a Sag is their irrepressible optimism.  They are convinced that everything will always work out for the best.  This attitude has helped them through many a storm.  They keep a positive attitude and sense of humor…and when things get tough, they are able to find the silver light at the end of the tunnel.  This is also one of the luckiest signs of the Zodiac.  Sags are enthusiastic and always keen to take the initiative and make things happen.  They don’t like to sit around and watch the grass grow…they like to have new and exciting projects that keep them on the go.  Otherwise they get fed up and depressed.  They need something to aim for.  Goals are very important to Sags, preferring challenges to walkovers.  Once they achieve their goal, they are on their way to the next target!

Life is always lively with a Sag around…they enjoy discussing ideas with friends and loved ones.  They are intellectual and enjoy stretching their minds….their homes are full of books, and have a tremendous respect for knowledge.  They pride themselves on their honesty, hate hypocrites and yes men.  Sags are also known to exaggerate a bit…and sometimes they are more blunt and direct than you would want. 

One of the most popular signs, people can’t help but flock around the Sagittarian.  They radiate a friendly force-field, are terrific company and laughter never seems to be far away.  They have a lot of friends!  People appreciate their open and straightforward manner.  Sags cannot stand to be tied down or hemmed in by a partner.  They need to be able to lead their own life and not feel that someone is always peering over their shoulder trying to police their every move.  The Sag will let their partner know if this is annoying them.  If you love a Sag, they need their space.  Sags enjoy sex, but the most important need in a partner is one who will be a friend as well as a lover.  That friendship is something sorely needed long after the passion fades.  Anything else is not good enough.  The best signs for a Sagittarian are Gemini, Leo, and also Libra, Aquarius and Aries.

In careers, Sags are very sociable and like to be surrounded by lively colleagues, and are popular in their workplace.  They like jobs that keep them on the move…not stuck behind a desk.  Sags are ideally suited to career in education, publishing, writing, broadcasting, philosophy, and travel.  They love money and enjoy spending it.  The most exciting thing to them about money, is what it can buy.  They prefer casual clothes to dressing up and are not impressed by designer labels.  They have a weak spot for cars…especially those that are sleek and distinctive and that cost a fortune.

WE LOVE OUR SAGITTARIAN FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS!!!!
