Gator in Pottsburg Creek Jacksonville, FL

Gator in Pottsburg Creek

A Couple months ago while walking Charlie I heard that distinctive sound of  a gator going into the water, thud thud thud splash.  Then from the dock I could see its head in the water, it was no bigger than my hand, OK so I can continue to walk my beagle sown by the water with no fear.  Well maybe I should be scared again, I received a call from Kieth one of my neighbors that has a lovely 2nd floor view of the river to say there was a huge Gator in Pottsburg Creek.  He had swam right by the dock and went back into Little Pottsburg Creek.  I caught up with him on the bridge.

I guesstimate his size between 6-7 feet, his head was little more than 2 buoys.

First big gator I have seen in the Creek, did see a small maybe 3 foot one a couple months ago at night, but this fella was large and in charge.

So I have been taking A hard crash course in the good and the bad out there for www.aboutonlinemarketing.org

About Online Marketing .org

So I thought I would put this up as an update of what I have been doing lately.. and that a bunch of searching the interwebs for what is out there for Online Marketing… And also person to person marketing for a couple of weeks will leave that for the other site..

I have 5 sites up.. but been in a bit of a writers block especially for www.aboutonlinemarketing.org I have so far learned much of what I know from..
 

Most impressive is always having a community that you can bounce ideas off with the live chat

I have been with them for over a year and it is a great place to start building sites, they have fully integrated everything in one place, . and if you are trying to do a website just to promote a certain type of product or write on a subject or Niche Marketing that is NOT geared toward  making money online, Start here for free.

Which is what most of the Systems to sell Systems are.  If you have ever searched for making money online it is a crazy competitive marked with scams galore out there.

Wealthy Affiliate will keep you off that track on to a subject that you can write or create for.  That is what will keep you off the roller coaster of trying to generate traffic, and get lured by shady folks.

 I have come across one system that I would like to promote.

It is working for me.

It is straight talk The set up nice so that you can jump into the make money online market with the most step by step training laid out in a systematic form.

I have been working the product for a week and having some good success.  It is all about implementation and of course the learning, just don’t get sucked into the SHINNY OBJECT syndrome.

If your interested in making some money with no work involved there are some sites out there for that,

What!  Who doesn’t like free $

I am also going to set up some other interesting easy money just surfing on www.aboutonlinemarketing.org in the next couple of days.

If you have not liked my stuff on Facebook or Google+ or YouTube please do..  I need to start making some money with this interweb thing before my fiance kicks me out..  I promise to only put stuff out there that I actually use and do myself and not the endless crap I come across and waste time with.

Unity Plaza

If you have not seen Unity Plaza and the revitalization of this area of town it is worth checking out. Be a part of your community. http://events.unityplaza.org/

Did you miss the quiet opening of Unity Plaza or even been on that side of the river to see the new vibrant area?

Love the Concept of Unity Plaza

The mission statement is to have free community activities 365 days a year.  I heard that the Jacksonville Symphony was going to play and took my youngest son, I have never been able to get that close to an orchestra other than being in one but that is another story.

My son and I were laying on the fake grass and enjoying the sounds.  The Amphitheater design was perfect for this event.

IMG_0201So I have not looked into the prices of the apartments there but I did see folks enjoying the performance from their balconies. The Brooklyn Area Development is one of many shining examples of Jacksonville progressing to a forward thinking city and it brings more residential downtown.

St. Johns River Mammals

These St. Johns River mammals were rounding up about 2-300 birds floating on the spanning the length of a football field at the Mayport Jetties,

These porpoise were probably eating fish below.

It sure did look like they really wanted to make all the birds fly out of the water.

They kept me entertained while I waited for the Chinese Navy’s last ship to enter port.

These are the babies that were with the one above, this is why I think its the same group, usually you see 2 adults with 1 baby, this pod is 3 adults and 2 babies.
People and other River Mammals use the St. Johns River for many things, and People trash our river.

Don't Trash Our River
This is for you son, He told me I should take a picture of that and tell people not to through your trash on the ground. Yeah unfortunately a lot of it ends up in our water ways. This was not the river but new Unity Plaza retention pond.
