Comment of the Day!


I have loved Mac's Drive Thru burgers and skinny fries for years!  Their version of a Cuban sandwich is good too.  Too bad they are closed on Saturdays - would make for a great tailgate meal!

Happy Wednesday!


GLOBmaster2017Good morning GLOBers!  You know how sometimes it is the little things that make your day special?  The GLOB Master was out for my morning walk Sunday and at the end I decided to stop in the grocery store.  I sat down on a bench, texted a few messages, and went inside Publix to get a few things.  It was hours later in the day -- when I was heading back out -- I realized I had left my hat on the bench in front of grocery store. DRAT, so long hat. I thought to myself.   I made the trek back to Publix just to check and see if someone had found my hat and left it with the Publix staff.  Sure enough there was my hat, waiting at the Customer Service Counter hours for me to pick it up!  Now how cool is that?!?!  As I still tell my kids this is why I live in Gainesville!

May’s fragmented and compelling images reveal an artist seeing the world and making art after stroke.  The exhibition is free and open to the public.
