Just Say NO To The Recession…

Are you a small business? Trying to stay positive in these ‘trying’ times? Not sure what the next week or month might bring and not sure what to expect from the holiday season? Why not ignore all of the economic bad news, let your more positive way of thinking win out, and just say “no” to the recession?

Just Say “No” to the Recession:

A Refresher Course for Retailers Who Want to Boom Rather Than Bomb This Holiday Season
by Rick Segel, Courtesy of  http://www.napleschamber.org

These are the times that try retailers’ souls. Unemployment is at a 14-year high, consumer confidence is at an all-time low, and the stock market has yet to mellow out. If you own a retail store, you’re not sure what sales numbers to expect this holiday season.

Why not ignore all of this economic bad news, let your more positive way of thinking win out, and just say “no” to the recession?

I’ve been noticing lately that the restaurants I go to are still full of patrons. And when the ski shop in my town had its preseason sale, its parking lot was full. And a good friend of mine, a real estate broker, just told me she had one of her best months in three years. My point? People are still buying stuff, big and small. And it’s not like Christmas was cancelled this year, so people will keep on buying. It’s your job to make sure they are buying stuff from you.

The Grand Canyon Skywalk – Awesome

north naples floridaI found this picture and article on a friend’s Facebook page – it is totally awesome but I know I couldn’t go out on this skywalk. I would be totally freaked out! But it is a spectacular thing for sure…what do you think?

The Grand Canyon Skywalk is a transparent horseshoe-shaped cantilever bridge and tourist attraction in Arizona near the Colorado River on the edge of a side canyon in the Grand Canyon West area of the main canyon. USGS topographic maps show the elevation at the Skywalk’s location as 4,770 ft (1,450 m) and the elevation of the Colorado River in the base of the canyon as 1,160 ft (350 m), and they show that the height of the precisely vertical drop directly under the skywalk is between 500 ft (150 m) and 800 ft (240 m).

Commissioned and owned by the Hualapai Indian tribe, it was unveiled March 20, 2007, and opened to the general public on March 28, 2007. It is accessed via the Grand Canyon West Airport terminal or a 120-mile (190 km) drive from Las Vegas, which includes a 10-mile (16 km) stretch of dirt road which is currently under development. The Skywalk is east of Meadview and north of Peach Springs with Kingman being the closest major city.

Vanderbilt Beach June 26th – Tropical Storm Debby

North Naples FLI knew there was a lot going on with the rain, wind and all the bad weather further up north of us…but I was itching to get over to Vanderbilt Beach to see the Gulf! I am in AWE of the Gulf, whether it’s during the day with calm waters, or at night as the sun is setting or when we have ‘weather’ and the waves are coming in  OR during/after Tropical Storm Debby!!! I wanted to get out and ‘check it out’…

So today, I was out and about running errands and I had a 30 minute time frame where I could ‘get away’, so of course, I went immediately to Vanderbilt Beach. Not knowing what to expect, knowing that there had to be waves but just totally unprepared…this is the first ‘bad’ weather we’ve been in since we’ve been down here in SWFL in 2 years…we’ve had such mild weather. But I knew that the Gulf was ‘showing itself’ and I wanted to see it!!!

Here you go – at Vanderbilt Beach, while I was there, there was pretty much No Beach! The wind was blowing unbelievable and the tide was coming in. Although kids and adults were having fun in the waves…which I never would have ventured into those waves, the water kept coming in and at one point, there was actually no beach showing…the water came right up to the vegetation and sea grass…wow – never seen that!

Lots of Wind, Lots of Sand, The Smell of The Sea, More Sand…I Loved It!!! and would do it again tomorrow and the next day, and the next…I just love the Gulf!!!

Prayers going out to all the people affected by Tropical Storm Debby…May they be Safe and Get Through This Time Of Their Life!

Tropical Storm Debby Hits North Naples

Tornado picture courtesy of Sean Parker – Thank You Sean!

My husband and I had planned a trip up to Venice for the weekend. When we left on Friday, it had started raining in North Naples. We were not so sad as we knew how much our SWFL area needed the rain. And while in Venice, that is about all it did…but they needed the rain also. We were out and about enjoying our time in Venice, checking out the different shops and restaurant and just taking time out for a much needed rest.

We even went over to the North Jetty Saturday afternoon and watched a lot of the ‘surfers’ enjoy the waves that were coming in…

On Saturday evening, I spoke to my sister in North Georgia who told me she heard that a tornado had touched down in Naples…of course, being in Venice, we were out of the loop so I got online and Googled ‘tornado North Naples’ and sure enough, a tornado had touched down not far from where we lived.

On the way home today, we drove through lots of rain and had to deal with ‘really crazy people’ on I-75. These crazy people never slowed down for the rain…which you must have respect for the rain…well, someone didn’t have respect and just north of Fort Myers, there was an accident with all the southbound lanes of I-75 closed. We were able to get off the interstate before hitting the traffic jam and we traveled a few miles down Tamiami Trail so we could get around the traffic jam. We were able to get back on the interest south of the accident and got home with no issues.

Once home, we decided to go over to the Boston Beer Garden for lunch. While there, our sweet little waitress told us about the tornado yesterday and that one of her customers actually got a picture of the tornado right outside the Boston Beer Garden from the parking lot…it just so happened that he was there, so she brought him over so we could see the picture on his Smart Phone! I asked Sean to email me a copy of the tornado picture so I could post it on my site for all to see.

Thank You Sean Parker – our North Naples ‘news eye in the sky’ photographer and ‘storm chaser’…ha ha – what a great photo and so ominous, I think I would have been shaking in my shoes if I were standing in the parking lot at the Boston Beer Garden and saw this tornado over by Tamiami Trail…

Thank goodness no one was hurt in the tornado but there was definitely a lot of damage in the area.
