Your weekly slice of island life.


Hello Key Biscayne!

A rather quiet week on the island for most of us, except maybe some aspiring politicos and a little dog.

Tree Key Biscayne Dec 2020No jokes today. We're taking it easy.

Anywho, let’s get going.

Light and fluffy

Little nibble A dog went swimming on Virginia Key and was bit by a shark. At first it sounds a bit surprising but you gotta think that a small dog floating by, partially submerged, is like a chicken wing buffet for a shark. Anywho, the dog made it home alive. πŸ—


Stop the steal If you find yourself longing to relive the 2020 election, be it the national one, or more importantly the one here on the island, then this is the story for you.

Key Colony is having their big election soon and they’re keeping 2020 going into the new year: there’s familiar faces, there’s allegations of conspiracy, and their legal counsel became ensnared in the whole thing and resigned.

From the peanut gallery

Regarding roundabouts or whatever you wanna call ’em:

Please explain to the ladies driving their Range Rovers while talking on their phones how a roundabout works. They seem to think they have the right of way no matter what. Just sayin’…


Fine whines of KB

We have gotten so far away from the reason we incorporated. Very sad. The reason...Some people need power others need money. I hope we can get back to the reason we incorporated.First you get the money, then you get the power, then you get the reasons.
