We are spending the day around the city visiting our favorite spots. Mostly Liberty Park, The public library, farmers market (so huge Winter Park should be ashamed), and several ice cream/coffee shops. Tonight we are having a bbq with Derrick, Kim, and a few of their friends.
The more I see of Salt Lake City the more ashamed I am of Orlando and the elected people who run it. Orlando has more people and a larger tax base, however, its evident that the officials in SLC are spending the publics money in the interest of the public. Huge family friendly parks, open spaces, public transportation that people use, fantastic library, and zoning. I mean zoning that can't be changed with bribe money. The City of Orlando funds new arenas, ballet, and the performing arts. What working family can afford Magic tickets or hangs out at the ballet?
I'm mailing in a written offer on the farm in N.C tonight. The farm is about 15 minutes north of Franklin. Its 10.5 acres, a house, two barns, a seasonal creek, and 1200' of frontage a a larger creek that flows all year. The home is a two one built in 1935, It also has a loft. By the house there is a spring house built into the mountain thats made of field stones, is about 8' by 8' and remains a cool 46 degrees all year. It would make a great place to live and work the land. At best, Melissa will only let the family live there during the heat of Florida's summer.
