U.K. vote to leave EU Union.  only England has voted to leave the EU.  Scotland voted to stay in the EU.  Prime Minister resigns.  Negotiations will take 2 years, but a reversal is very unlikely. Global markets sell off shortly after initial voting results.

Prayers and condolences to the families of the victims.

It amazes me that someone will automatically state that if someone had a gun there would be less victims. First stupid part of that statement is "less victims". Secondly, many of these comments come from people that don't have a lot of experience in firing a weapon or have never been in a fire fight. Just because you have a gun doesn't mean you would be successful in stopping someone intent in killing a group of people. Even policemen who have protective gear and trained in these situations are sometimes wounded or killed. Third, these people automatically speak out against gun control and laws. The aim in establishing good gun control laws is to eliminate the ability of such incidents from taking place. People should be able to go to places without the need to be armed or the worry of such incidents occurring.

It took 11 police officers firing their weapons to take down this shooter. So 1 good man with a gun would have been more effective (sarcasm).

Initial reports indicated both sides of the Causeway would be shut down to allow Bayflite to transport a patient. However, westbound lanes are currently open, although motorists are advised to find alternate routes for the "foreseeable future." Eastbound traffic remains closed and is being diverted at McMullen Booth Road. The crash happened on the Clearwater side of the Causeway, near the small or first bridge. One patient is being taken to St. Joseph's Hospital.


Picture is of the real Abbey in this story

Some of you may know that our 14 year old dog, Abbey, died last month (8/23/2006). The day after she died, my 4 year old daughter Meredith was crying and talking about how much she missed Abbey. She asked if we could write a letter to God so that when Abbey got to heaven, God would recognize her.

She dictated and I wrote:

     Dear God,

     Will you please take special care of our dog, Abbey? She died yesterday and is heaven. We miss her very much. We are happy that you let us have her as our dog even though she got sick. I hope that you will play with her. She likes to play with balls and swim before she got sick. I am sending some pictures of her so that when you see her in heaven you will know she is our special dog. But I really do miss her.

     Love,

     Meredith Claire

     P.S.: Mommy wrote the words after Mer told them to her

We put that in an envelope with 2 pictures of Abbey, and addressed it to God/Heaven. We put our return address on it. Then Mer stuck some stamps on the front (because, as she said, it may take lots of stamps to get a letter all the way to heaven) and that afternoon I let her drop it into the letter box at the post office.

For a few days, she would ask if God had gotten the letter yet. I told her that I thought He had. Yesterday, for Labor Day, we took the kids to Austin to a natural history museum. When we got back, there was a package wrapped in gold paper on our front porch. Curious, I went to look at it. It had a gold star card on the front and said "To: Mer" in an unfamiliar hand.

Meredith took it in and opened it. Inside was a book by Mr. Rogers, When a Pet Dies. Taped to the inside front cover was the letter we had written to God, in its opened envelope (which was marked 'Return to Sender: Insufficient address'). On the opposite page, one of the pictures of Abbey was taped under the words "For Meredith." We turned to the back cover, and there was the other picture of Abbey, and this handwritten note on pink paper:

     Dear Mer, I know that you will be happy to know that Abbey arrived safely and soundly in Heaven! Having the pictures you sent to me was such a big help. I recognized Abbey right away.

     You know, Meredith, she isn't sick anymore. Her spirit is here with me — just like she stays in your heart — young and running and playing. Abbey loved being your dog, you know. Since we don't need our bodies in heaven, I don't have any pockets! — so I can't keep your beautiful letter. I am sending it to you with the pictures so that you will have this book to keep and remember Abbey.

     One of my angels is taking care of this for me. I hope the little book helps.

     Thank you for the beautiful letter. Thank your mother for sending it. What a wonderful mother you have! I picked her especially for you.

      I send my blessings every day and remember that I love you very much. By the way, I am in heaven and wherever there is love.

      Love,

      God, and the special angel who wrote this after God told her the words.


Tampa, Florida (AP) -- For the first time in four years some Citizens insurance customers will see their rates reduced. The board for Citizens Property Insurance voted Wednesday to lower rates by an average of 3.2 percent for single family homeowners in 2015. The state-created insurer says that nearly 70 percent of those with homeowner policies should see some sort of decrease. Citizens, which has more than 928,000 policyholders, has raised its rates for four straight years. The decision to lower rates, which still must be approved by state regulators, is coming during an election year. But company officials maintain several factors have diminished the need for rate hikes next year. The state has not been hit with a hurricane since 2005. Some customers, including those who live near the coast, will still pay more in the coming year.
