Whitney commented on "My Trip to The Real Golden Girls' House"

So glad to know there are many other die hard GG fans out there. I still watch the reruns every chance I get. I live in Florida and the view in the opening sequence reminds me of my mom’s Florida home. The show offers me so much comfort. Those four ladies are like old friends, and no matter that I have seen every episode countless times, it remains one of my all time favorite television shows.

Well I am back from my trip to Los Angeles and I am happy to report that thanks to your guidance we were able to locate The Golden Girls house!  It was surreal standing outside it after seeing it on TV all these years, and it was the highlight of my trip.  I have a great pic of me standing outside it too so there is a way to post a photo on here let me know, I’d love to share it!

Janet Brown commented on "Elvis Presley's Miami Connection"

Sosobee’s funeral home founder the grandfather said the Robinson twins are none other than Elvis and Jessie Garon Presley, these men certainly fit the age one has died and Alfred B. Robinson is is still alive. He owned all the funeral homes when the one in Easley died, Alfred got that one too, since Alfred has put all in his sons name, he run the coffee shop in Easley next to the Robinson funeral home , so this would fit as to why a no-body like my mother would know Elvis if he is Alfred, keep in mind my uncle is my father, and it gives to reason why Colonel did not want Elvis’s career ruined with that as public news. The Colonel was all about stealing to much even from Elvis. Them Cigars finally got him. Well we all are born to die I am just sad I never got to know my family on a personal basis.

Janet Presley(Robinson) Brown, for all who want to help all Elvis’s CHILDREN find me at the Waffle house on Liberty Hwy., Anderson, S.C. at Justice Lane I am a waitress who needs the tip money to pay to get my DNA done. I also clean houses for the elderly. There is a song “I love Old People” it is a christian song. I sing a song prayer to my customers sometimes. Well the cotton tycoons donate money to charities but how much in the organization is really put in some of their pockets cause Sally Abney Rose’s home has rotted on Clemson Blvd. in Anderson, S.C. where has all her money and profits went to that that home is fixing to be torn down. I so wanted to do fund raising parties with beautiful women dressed in ball room gowns parading in front for people on the main hwy., to see her home in full bloom. SAVE HER HOME

Janet Robinson Presley Brown commented on "Elvis Presley's Miami Connection"

Check out the Collin’s families, Fishers,Owen,Newton some are in these areas Pendleton, S. C., look for the grave site on Liberty Hwy., leaving Anderson, S. C. going towards Easley, S. C. and Pickens, the graves are in the curve right pass the fire dept., this is where Maj. J. Newton in the 1800’s is buried at. Are these Mills in Pendleton, Clemson, Seneca, Wahalla, Greenwood, and Belton, John (Buck) Smith Fulp grandmother Sally abney Rose use to hold the cotton tycoon meetings at her mansion, Buck use to fly to go get Elvis to bring him back to her home for those meetings and why is it Mrs Ernest Sexton tells me that Elvis slept in her house how is she and her husband come to know Elvis and why have so many people around me kept him a secret from me, I wanted my Dahdee and to hold his hand then why have I not went after my DNA this is why I feel the Devil has been in all to do such a cruel thing to a child and if the money means that much to them then the money will be a curse to all involved of his money for they may even kill to take from the other or drugs will get them, some where down the line even a house or land the married couples will fight over, at least when I go to bed I’ve put in a hard days work.

Karen commented on "The Jewish impact on Miami Beach"

What I found surprising was how many conservative Jews there are here. Seems 1/3 of Miami is conservative Jews. More than NYC . Has this been the case for decades?

Cesar commented on "The Reasons People Don't Like Miami: 100 Comments and Counting!"

I’m from Brazil and I went to Miami for Vacations and it was the worst thing I could do in my live. The issues started at the airport with people with bad attitude.
At the hotel the receptionist didn’t recognize my early checking even when I showed the printed e-mail I exchanged with hotel manager. The receptionist started screaming and told me to leave the hotel otherwise he would call the police! I staied 3 hours on the street until the issues in the hotel got resolved.
My credit card for blocked 4 times and everytime I called the bank, they say that it is for my own security because this a risk area for credit card transactions with many fraud.
The people like to show that they drive a BMW or expensive cars or live in big houses. In other trip to Miami for work, a co-worker told me:- If you need me to pick up at at the hotel, you need to help me in advance, because I need to decide if I’m going to use my BMW convertibe or my (I don’t remember the other brand, but it was expensive car). People like to show more than enjoy good things in life.

I am getting my masters degree at Nova Southeastern in Fort Lauderdale. I feel like I have to super dumb down - not at the school but going out, meeting people, etc. If I say a word larger than 4 letters, I intimidate people. I enjoy the night life, fashion, and the ability to network…but damn, I feel isolated from a majority of the population. It is not my fault that I am educated and work hard at bettering myself. My circle is like 3 people, in which none of us are from here. Im good on this place, once I finish, I am out. I would not move here if I were a millionaire. 

Oh…everyone has a BMW. Seriously, when the economy tanks, I wonder how many people will still have them. To pull women, you have to be dumb as rocks or filthy rich. It is so weird. I have never had issues pulling women, at all. And the women here are beautiful, but it is too much of a game - and they are dumb. Not all but a majority. So I will take my talents away from South Beach. 

Nice weather! It will inspire you to work out. Oh yeah the posts above, this is the number state for HIV. I believe it. Just take what I say with a grain of salt, I definitely maximized the city. You will meet people from all over the world. If you are nice to the right person, YOU WILL STAND THE F*** OUT. Being nice here is like a weakness. Open the door for a women, and she just looks at you. No thank you or anything. Spanish women turned me off living here too. You are not white person! I love all colors, as I am a black guy, but really?? Caribbean too, the hell. You all are rude! I am nowhere a xenophobe, I love people from all over the world! Here, ha!

Hope I gave you some insight. Beautiful city, un-beautiful people. I am not generalizing, but you would have to live here to see it. Black, White, Asian, etc. If you are not from here and decide to live here, you will be leaving in a few years.

Monrad commented on "Don Aronow Comments Offer a Wild Story of Their Own"

I’m glad to see that the conversation continues on this case.  The last two comments are very interesting. Red has made several statements that make it seems if he was he was involved in some legal matters or trials involving organized crime in Chicago and Miami.

Hi Anna, thanks for chiming in. Red’s not really boasting ,he kinda does this for a living.
You’re here you’re talking, anything else you want us to know?
Either way you’re welcome and thanks for dropping by.

Anna Schweihs commented on "Don Aronow Comments Offer a Wild Story of Their Own"

So much speculation. A whole lot of talking. What I know is that my family’s name still gets respect in Chicago. Accusing Frank of anything is pointless. What matters is can you prove it? And Red, you boast about testifying like you deserve a medal for it. That’s just plain crazy.

Arthur Hornblower commented on "Life for Americans is Hard in Miami, and They All Realize it Eventually"

Came, stayed for 6 years, had a kid and fled. All of Dade county, and Broward south of 595, is exceptionally racist against anglophones. I’m sure some individual will say “I speak English and I make $120k a year so you suck” but that’s the exception, not the rule. By the time I left, I had realized that the city was infested with dogs. Violent, noisy, traveling in packs, vicious dogs. Dogs driving 7 series BMWs. It’s so bad. They would start barking at me in that filthy pig Latin: at Publix, Walmart, Sams Club, Walgreens ... I would bark back “woof woof woof”. The public schools run regular classes (Math, Science, History, etc) in Spanish, and favor the Spanish language classrooms. I didn’t want my kid getting second rate teachers, teased in a foreign language, or knifed, so I left. I won’t be back, except maybe to drop a duce on the sidewalk. What a dump. Fuck you Miami.

Such a nice sharing, Pine Island is a most famous holiday destination where the large number of visitors visit it each year. I also visit there before going to enjoy my <a >Niagara falls bus tours from Chicago</a> about few months ago with my friends. We all had great time there and had lots of fun there.

sascha blasi commented on "Comparing California to Florida? There IS No Comparison"

He forgot to mention how flat Florida is. And how beautiful California is. Everywhere. Or how humid Florida gets. To the point you can not take a breath. I still like FL a lot. But compared to LA, well, it’s not even close

CAtransplant commented on "Comparing California to Florida? There IS No Comparison"

Feel your anxiety Michael…been there. Same age, solid education, work qoals, etc but thought FL would be laid back (so very wrong).  Lived in Silicon Valley for 18 yrs to survive the highs & dot-com bust & after recovery made it to south FL.  A few highlights: Surprisingly low value on education, jobs do not pay, very little healthcare pkg and insurance rates - medical + home + auto - are exhorbitant. Mass transit is non-existent but biking is too dangerous and often the bus or trolley routes are not following any schedule. Fresh foods, nonGMO or alternates have little representation & cost for food is way more than it was in CA.  Just do the homework & prepare.  In CA I regularly visited with strangers, went out alone at night (professionally & with personal friends) but never had any trouble.  FL is downright dangerous as I no longer go anywhere after dark & my daily/nightly runs or walks are mired by hit-and-run accidents all the time here.  I would never ask any stranger for help in FL; most people won’t stop to assist & everyone is here to make a buck off someone else.
That said more similar to SD vibe can be found in Tampa area (temperate climate), Charleston (cooler) or Wilmington.  Keep in mind these would all be ‘small town’ compared to SD/LA mass area but reasonable people, cost of living & comfort.  The difference in attitudes (West coast vs East coast) is noticeable and rude remarks always seem similarly pervasive.  Over time you are likely to make your new home what you want and it’s best to take the high road. 
PS - It’s not working well for me, after 2 1/2 years I am doing everything possible & looking everywhere to move back to CA.  Too expensive now in NorCal but keeping hope with SoCal!  Best of luck!

Emily commented on "How I Moved to Miami from England"

Hi Jess,

Your article is so inspiring and helpful. I’m terrified; I have just been offered a job in Miami which has a healthy salary and benefits but I’m so scared. I’m 31 and worried that I am just delaying my singledom further. I want to settle down with someone but at the same time I want to live abroad- and I love Miami! I am in no way a huge party girl- choosing nice long dinners with wine over a party. Were you single when you moved to Miami and what advice can you give for someone like me who is worried that I’m simply pausing my life?
