Kick off your shoes, put up your feet, and imagine living life the way it’s supposed to be lived. On this site we have news, sports, movie, and music headlines with links to the stories, weather reports for Chicago, Miami, Honolulu, Los Angeles, and your local weather, live real-time photos from the AMC-16 satellite in geosynchronous orbit above the equator, recipes for your favorite tropical drinks, hopefully interesting stories, and a few games for you to idle away the hours.  Also included on the pages are related links to other interesting web sites.

To kick-off this web site, the first story I have is about one of my favorite songs, The Girl From Ipanema. There is more to this song than just words and music so I encourage you to enjoy a good read. I’m working on the next story which, hopefully, will be up soon.  I’m not telling what it is, but I’ll introduce to you the one and only Billy Shears and the mystery behind that name.  For those who know what I’m talking about, there are things that have happened in the past few years that make this an even more interesting story.  So sit back, relax, and I hope you enjoy your stay here.
