Peeps is to Marshmallows as Dominos is to Pizza

One of the truly sad things about living where we do.... Dominos is the second best pizza place in the whole town..... It's very tough to get decent pizza in Florida and esp. here in Gainesville.

Thanks for the information which leads me to strike FL off my list of potential retirement relocation destinations!  :p

Hurricanes, giant sinkholes, Dominos...what else is wrong there?

It's full of Floridians.

I jest. What about mosquitos and alligators?

Speaking of pizza, we like Round Table. DiGiorno is very good for frozen pizza.

Hey! I just noticed my title has been lengthened by three words.

I forgot about the bugs! All too many years ago, I worked for a G.E. subsidiary, and there was someone from the G.E. financial management fast track program assigned to work with our company. In that program he had previously had a rotation at a G.E. business in FL. Telling me about that, he described that during that assignment, when he came back to his hotel and unlocked the door to his room, if he was not careful he could be knocked over by the giant Palmetto bugs! <still laugh at that story, in spite of 30 years ensuing

As for Alligators, as a teen I owned two of them! Purchased when they were about 10" long, one passed away but the other one lived until it was 24" long when I donated it to University of CA San Jose's herpetology department before I went away to college. (They had an even larger one that they would take for a walk on a leash!) I thought it was a caiman, but the professor told me it was a real alligator and asked me if I really wanted to give it away (far greater in value than a caiman). So that would not scare me away from living in FL...but giant palmetto bugs (cockroaches) I shudder at the thought.

My wife and I lived in Florida for a couple of years... believe me palmetto bugs are no fun, and they get BIG!

Sounds to me like you snowbirds just haven't heard of pesticide. When a Floridian builds a house, all the ground under the house is treated before construction, then all the inside corners of the house are treated.

The only time I see a bug is when it's dead.

But, I understand - none of the hotel/motel places are treated properly.

I killed my first scorpion of the season a couple nights ago, in the back yard. The good thing about them is, they eat cockroaches. The bad thing is, they hurt a lot more.

I attempt to befriend anything that eats bugs. I don't kill spiders, I relocate them...

My wife demands that I kill scorpions and black widows (both of which are numerous in the summer months). I have convinced her that the other spiders are good critters. I really like Wolfies, and Nursery Web Spiders hang out with me in the pool. Crevice Weavers kinda mind their own bee's wax until a bug hits their web. Jumpers are fun, of course. I wish we had more Praying Mantids; they're the coolest bugs ever.

Peeps are evil. So are the people who consume them. Just sayin'

Peeps in the microwave, however... the absolute opposite of evil. :twisted:

You must have a really big microwave if you can get a friend in there. Can't even get a turkey in mine.:-P

and your Thanksgiving guests thank you. We were guests one Thanksgiving where the host swore off oven/stove combinations and only had a microwave.

The meal was ummmmmm "interesting".

Ha-ha, used to work at a place where we had to have a safety meeting on microwave usage. Seems people were heating coffee too long and they'd grab it to take a sip when it was done, and it would explode when it hit the cooler air all over their face scalding them. Microwaves are vastly overrated and dangerous too!

They're awesome for making nachos, and boiling a cup of water. A lot of things are dangerous if you don't use them properly.
