My Foodie Adventures Izzy’s Fish and Oyster
I can’t believe it’s a year now since I went to Fort Myers, FL for weekend escape. This trip was done just before the beginning of the pandemic. My wife and I had a good time. Nice shops, food and scenery. Izzy’s was simply delicious seafood especially the Dolphin Sandwich!


Nostalgia Huffy Bikes
So growing up in South Florida, all the neighborhood kids had a bike. Yes, there were different levels of makes and models according to what you could afford. My parents could only afford bikes at a Jefferson’s, Zayre’s or K-Mart. The Huffy Thunder Road was in my possession as a gift. My sister was gifted the girly version of the Huffy Thunder Road–The Sweet Thunder!
It’s nice to see the Huffy Brand is still around!

Music I have been listening to this past week

This week, while listening to the local R&B station in South Florida HOT 105, a flood of old school jams have come into my radar. Check out some of the classics below:


Where are they now? The Fifth Dimension
Growing up in New Jersey, my Peruvian parents came into this country in the late 60’s and where hooked to the music of the time. Artists such as Johnny Mathis, Tom Jones, Sergio Mendes and Brasil 66, Burt Bacharach, and other albums were at my disposal. I would study the art work, lyrics and linear notes of each album. One group, comprised of 5 members with angelic voices and a sound that blew me away were the Fifth Dimension. These Vocal Group Hall of Fame winners dominated the late 60’s and early 70’s throughout the TV and Radio waves. The two 5th Dimension albums in my parent’s collection where Portrait and Love’s Lines, Angles and Rhymes.

It was a treat a couple of weeks ago while watching CBS This Morning to see the two founding members Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr. are doing well. Some people may say their sound is corny but these music and songs are part of the sounds of my life growing up in Jersey. No electronic instruments just some good old fashioned instruments with a grand orchestra. Funny, I gravitate more to music than TV. Here’s a compilation of the Fifth Dimension’s Hits. Enjoy!

My Foodie Adventures Island Grove Wine Company at Formosa Gardens
My wife is a fan of their wines. Check out this Kissimmee FL based winery and here’s my short review of the place.


Nostalgia KISS member Paul Stanley
Growing up in 70’s, friends turned me on to KISS. I had their posters on my wall and loved their Kiss Alive 2 album. As you probably seen or heard they just completed a big concert in Dubai during the holidays. Now, coming up on March 19, 2021, lead singer of KISS Paul Stanley is coming out with a soulful selection of music from past Motown and vintage R&B music. He sounds great! Check him out with his “Soul Station”.

Music I have been listening to this past week

This week, I have been remembering an under-rated British band, a saxophone playing New Yorker and a collaboration with a Grammy winner, a FunkMeister and a future Grammy winner.


Where are they now? The Guardian Angels
So I was watching “Beat Street” and all of a sudden this film reminded me of the Guardian Angels of New York. The Guardian Angels were created by Curtis Sliwa to protect citizens because of all the rampant crimes that were happening in the late 70’s and 80’s in New York. So these Angels rode the subways and streets trained in citizen arrest. In 2017, author David Francis Blanc wrote a book, An Angel’s Tale, about his service in the Guardian Angels. Since the group’s inception, now there are chapters all over the world.

My Foodie Adventures Sebring Diner: If you are on U.S. 27 in Sebring, FL during breakfast time, don’t forget to stop at this diner. Here’s my short review.


Nostalgia Stayin’ Alive (1983 film) This past week I saw this Sylvester Stallone directed film. In this sequel to ‘Saturday Night Fever, set six years after the events in the previous film, former disco king Anthony “Tony” Manero (John Travolta), now age 25, has left Brooklyn and is now living in Manhattan, staying in a flophouse hotel while he works as a dance instructor by day and as a waiter at a nightclub at night, looking for his big break in the modern dance productions on Broadway. Originally, I saw this film in the theater and less than a handful of times on cable TV. I understand why a lot of critics hated this film but I liked it. Now, I am not going to get to the specifics on why I liked it here but I agree with what some IMDB reviewers thought about the film. Great soundtrack from the film.

I found this useful article on this issue and shaved a couple of GB’s just following the instructions. Good luck.


Music I have been listening to this past week

This week, I have been remembering a Latin flutist, a Bee Gee produced album and a Doobie Brother.


Where are they now? So today on Amazon Prime you are probably biting at the bit to see Eddie Murphy’s film sequel of Coming To America, “Coming 2 America”. For you music fans, here’s a short documentary on how the first film’s music and soundtrack was made from the great Nile Rodgers of Chic. Here’s a cool article on where they are now.

My Foodie Adventures This is a place where I will be going and providing a review in the near future in the St. Augustine, FL area. This past week Buc-ee’s opened. It’s considered the Disney World of convenience stores. By the look of the pics online it looks interesting especially having some good jerky on display! For those of you who wanted to know about Hot Chicks House of Chicken in Pembroke Pines, FL-here’s my short review.


Nostalgia Schoolhouse Rock In 1973, this collection of educational cartoons that revolved around themes like grammar, science, economics, history, mathematics and civics was provided ABC Television. Note: I received an A+ in elementary school after learning, memorizing and reciting “The Preamble“. Disney + users, now you can see most of the collection!

70’s/80’s music I have been listening to this past week

This week, I have been all over the place with my music selection.

Where are they now? Cast of Pretty in Pink. So growing up in the 80’s, I was and am still a movie freak (now I pick and choose what films are good for my brain). One of my favorite directors at the time was John Hughes and his films because he had a connection with the youth of that time period. Now comes Pretty in Pink. To be honest, I have yet to see this whole film since it came out in ’86 but have seen bits and pieces of it throughout the years. Maybe it’s because…. I’d rather not say. Anyway, here’s a good article of where the cast are now since the film turned 35 years old last week.

70’s/80’s music I have been listening to this past week Growing up in a Latino household in the 70s and 80s, Salsa music ran rampant in my house and Grandparents home for Sunday dinner. So this past week, I have been listening to Johnny Pacheco’s compilation of Salsa music. He was the founder and musical director of Fania Records, who has passed away on Monday, February 15, 2021 at the age of 85. Here’s my favorites from this pioneer of Salsa music:

Fania All-Stars-Live At The Cheetah Club Vol. 1 and Vol. 2

Our Latin Thing (Nuestra Cosa Latina)Full Movie-Johnny Pacheco, Musical Director

Celia Cruz y Fania All Stars en Africa (1974)

Spotify-This is Johnny Pacheco

Damn, another Fat Boy bites the dust! Prince Markie Dee of the Fatboy’s rap group dead at 52.


Where are they now? Happy Gilmore” takes a golf swing this past week.

Other things I found: … and Shooter McGavin responds. Here’s what has happened to the rest of the cast.
