Okay, so who is ready for the sun? Sheesh. Here's your evening Sift, readers. Enjoy.
A- Isaac Instapix pics are up at Beached Miami.
B- Although it may be a little late for Isaac, Miamism has some hurricane tips and lists the kind of hurricane people.
The hurricane second handed – this is the person who has a loved one that will make all of the hurricane decisions. They will not even watch the news and leave the worrying to someone else. They will help if asked, but will not contribute any opinion to the cause.C- Speaking of Miamism, guess who won Curbed Miami's Hottest Miami Realtor contest?
It was a tight race, and an exciting one, but almost 3,000 people voted and by a close margin of %1, Miami's Hottest Broker is Ines Hegedus-Garcia. Yay Ines, you hottie, you won!D- Florida Keys Girl says that Isaac was a non-event that they watched from Hollywood.
Well, I guess we dodged a bullet. The news would have your believe that the world was ending, when in reality, we had rain. It is what we, in Florida, call “summer”.E- Worst Pizza doesn't have a whole lot of bad things to say about Tony's Pizza in Delray Beach but only gives them 4 out of 8 stars.
Pay when you are done, with no pressure, added to the friendliness of this place. I am almost embarrassed to say this since they have such a crappy oven, but I would actually go back to Tony’s Pizza since the slice was crisp, held up nicely, and it just felt like a pizza place from back home (minus the Southern European owners).F- Not so random thoughts from Obalesque about hunger in America and his wedding anniversary.
I went through 12 years of school and NEVER missed lunch. Not once. Some days I had two. It never even occurred to me that anybody in school ever went hungry. I was a sheltered, middle class kid with a stable family and the unwavering confidence such relative affluence provided. So reading this, I’m guilty, outraged, and incredulous. How can this be America?G- There's a great tribute to local blues man Big Poppa E, who passed away suddenly over the weekend, at Salty Eggs that you don't want to miss.
Among Poppa’s best songs was an original ballad titled “Daddy’s Girl.” Here, he movingly creates a composite portrait of his three daughters, his deep-river baritone floating atop sparse and jazzy chords. “Daddy, would you buy me a pair of soft, pretty wings,” he sang. “I really think I’d like to give flying a try.” He sported a ring that divided into three parts as a constant reminder of his love for them.H- The heavy rain is driving all sorts of things out of their normal hiding places, as Bark Bark Woof Woof shows us.
“My two best accomplishments in life,” he told me, “are being a good husband and a good father.”
