Switched Our New Blog Back To Blogger

Years ago when we first found our way on the Internet through Prodigy, Compuserve, AOL, and finally a local ISP, one of our first sites was on Blogger. Over the years we used Wordpress for many of our personal and interest sites but have found lately that it has problems with crashing quite frequently. We decided to give Blogger a try for our real estate blog and have found so far they have a really great control panel and features. It is much easier to use than the constant changes we had to endure with Wordpress.  

Fisher's at Orange Beach Marina makes Southern Living Top 30 restaurants - GulfCoastNewsToday.com: News

Fisher's at Orange Beach Marina makes Southern Living Top 30 restaurants - GulfCoastNewsToday.com: News: Another day another prestigious honor for the Alabama Gulf Coast.
Fisher's at Orange Beach Marina was named as one of the top 30 restaurants in the south for 2015 by Southern Living magazine.
The restaurants were listed in alphabetical order and this is what they had to say about Fisher's:
Chef Bill Briand trained under Emeril Lagasse before moving to Orange Beach, where he was met with an embarrassment of riches from the sea. Eschewing traditional�beach food—fried seafood and only fried seafood—much of Briand’s dishes spend time on the grill. The seared jumbo scallops with roasted cauliflower and ginger herb salad offers a refreshing recharge before heading back out onto the sand. And�we’ve recommended it before, but the Oysters Earle—oysters roasted and covered in garlic leek butter—are a must.�

Redbirds’ season a success in terms of supplying talent to parent Cardinals - The Commercial Appeal

Redbirds’ season a success in terms of supplying talent to parent Cardinals - The Commercial Appeal: Maybe the best way to sum up the Memphis Redbirds’ season was to review the process for picking the team’s representative to the Triple-A All-Star Game. First it was pitcher Tim Cooney … whoops, sorry, he’s up with the St. Louis Cardinals. OK then, infielder Greg Garcia … no can do, he’s in St. Louis, too.

Reliever Dean Kiekhefer finally got the ticket to Omaha and the Pacific Coast League squad. That just about sums up the mix-and-match season that finished with the Redbirds’ 7-3 win at Oklahoma City Monday.

Amazon to Release $50 Tablet

Amazon to Release $50 Tablet: Amazon.com Inc. has struggled to draw customers to its pricier tablets. So it’s going further down-market.

The Seattle online retailer plans to release a $50 tablet with a 6-inch screen, in time for this year’s holidays, according to people familiar with the matter. That would make it one of the least-expensive tablets on the market and half the price of the company’s current Fire HD 6-inch tablet.

"I'm so glad it didn't rain. I heard it was supposed to," said Vivian Wyatt of Biloxi. She and her daughter Laurel McLaughlin were soaking up rays near the waterline while her grandson, River McLaughlin, 3, played in the water. He was proud to be getting the hang of a squirt stick and soaked his mom and grandmother every chance he got.

Chosen by Mississippi Democrats, Shy Trucker Is at a Crossroad - The New York Times

Chosen by Mississippi Democrats, Shy Trucker Is at a Crossroad - The New York Times: At least she voted for him when she saw his name on the Aug. 4 ballot. Mr. Gray, 46, a round-faced, soft-spoken long-haul truck driver who lives on a quiet country road south of Jackson, was too busy working on his rig to vote himself. He would, nonetheless, go on to win, taking 79 out of Mississippi’s 82 counties.

Mr. Gray beat two other candidates, who unlike him spent money and campaigned. Democratic Party officials were stunned. The news media was stunned. Mr. Gray, now Mississippi’s Democratic nominee for governor, gave some interviews and then set off with a truck full of sweet potatoes for a potato chip factory in Pennsylvania.
