 Photo Credit: Elsa/Getty ImagesI thought of writing about the International Boat Show taking place in Fort Lauderdale, Fl. this weekend. But, earlier this week, my hometown baseball team, the Chicago Cubs finally clinched the World Series after a 108 year drought!! Growing up near the Wrigley Field stadium so many years ago, springtime for Chicago meant baseball and the Cubs.  As I write this, the city is celebrating the glory the team has brought it and euphoria reigns. I'm thinking, too, of how much my dad, a true Cubs fan, would've loved this.     Congratulations, Chicago Cubs!

The Day of the Dead is alive and well in South Florida. Come join us for this unique celebration on Wednesday November 2,  2016 from 4 to 6 pm beginning at the Huizenga Plaza located at 32 East Las Olas Blvd in Ft. Lauderdale. Also known as Dia De Los Muertos ( spanish translation), this holiday originated in Mexico over 3000 years ago.  Family members would go to the cemetary, clean the tombs and remember those that passed.  There would be music, storytelling, tequila and lots and lots of food. Though it may sound somber it was the opposite. Friends and family would gather to celebrate the life of their ancestors when they were here on earth. It was and is a time to look death in the eye with no fear. South Florida is multi-cultural and this event grows each year. It began in 2010 with...

Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS®)What is GICS?

As a widely accepted global standard, GICS provides a structure for investors, analysts and economists to consistently identify and analyze investment performance and economic activity, as well as to develop investment policies, products and research.What’s going on with GICS and real estate?

Miami and Miami Beach may be the center of the tourist universe, but I would not discount the beauty and liveliness of Ft. Lauderdale either.  Vacationers often touch down at the Ft. Lauderdale airport and make a beeline for I-95 South when some of the best tourist destinations are right under their noses.  Aside from the fact that Ft. Lauderdale is on the whole cheaper than almost anything down south it has plenty to do and see with a heck of a lot less traffic.  The beach is obvious.  It's completely different than South Beach because it is more family oriented and a bit quieter except for Spring Break of course.  Oh yeah, you can't take your top off either ladies.  I would focus my efforts on downtown and its eclectic lifestyle that boast an array of nightlife including some of the b...

Sign of the Times Even On Sunday It really doesn’t matter what side you are on, because when the smoke clears you pretty much have the same result. It just depends what track you prefer the fast track or slow track. America and the world are yet again facing dire consequences that will affect all citizens, rich, poor or in between. I would like to think a vote will matter, perhaps but unlikely.Yes my friend we are living in interesting times. A quote my mother often says was Eat, Drink, and be Merry for tomorrow we may have to work. In the end maybe that's all we can do anyway.
