Flo's Sweet Pickles

I got this recipe from my mother and so I will call it Flo's Sweet Pickles. It might be a common receipt, but I'm not aware of it. It's pretty simple and yields one gallon of very sweet pickles.
  • Go buy 1 gallon of round sliced dill pickles. My mother buys them from Sam's Warehouse.
  • Drain out all of the juice from the gallon of dill pickles, leaving the pickles in the jug.
  • Fill the jug full with tap water and drain, then repeat again. Make sure all the water is well drained the second time.
  • Take a bowl and measure out 8 cups of sugar.
  • Pour 2 - 12 oz bottles of Heinz Gourmet Tarragon Vinegar

    into the sugar bowl and stir, mixing well. Wait a few minutes and stir again.
  • Pour all of the sugar mix into the gallon of pickles. It should fill the jug completely. Put the lid on the jug, rotating and mixing well.
  • Put in the refrigerator and in about 12 to 24 hours you will have some very good and very sweet pickles.

Camping at Torreya State Park

Torreya State Park is located about 60 miles west of Tallahassee, Florida in the “Big Bend”. This park is noted for its varied terrain, ranging from hardwood to swamp wetlands and an area we Floridians could call “canyons” (large washed out clay hills). It’s the closest thing we can find around here that is similar to the beautiful Appalachian Mountains. The park has a nice network of trails to explore. My 13 year old son and I arrived at the park on Friday afternoon at 3:00 pm, the first day of spring. We had made reservations ahead to ensure our sites in the primitive camp areas. Because our region had been receiving abundant amounts of rainfall, we knew the mosquitoes would be in full force. We were not disappointed. We came prepared with plenty of bug repellent.  This trip could be called an "Introduction to Backpacking" for me and my son. We have done car camping, but yearned for a taste of “true” camping.

Review of Crocs Men's Modi Flip Flops

Review of Crocs Men's Modi Flip Flops As a result of an injury and suffering from Plantar Fasciitis and a heel spur, I needed some comfortable flip flops that offered support and heel comfort.  I previously had some Croc knock-off, slip on shoes and they felt comfortable, so I did some online research, reading reviews about various Croc shoes, and determined that the Croc Modi Flip was highly regarded. I went to my local sports store and tried on half a dozen flip flops to see which were the most comfortable, comparing them to the Modi Flip, and determined I like the Modi the best as they seemed to provide the best comfort for my heel. As an added bonus they have nice foot massage bumps. I first bought size 11 thinking it fit the best, but once at home, sitting and walking in the house, I decided they were a little snug across the top of my foot, so I exchanged them for size 12. They fit perfect, not too tight when sitting in a chair, yet snug enough when walking.
