Handmaids Tale: Check out the trailer
On January 10th, Florida’s Office of the Governor, under very newly elected Ron DeSantis, issued Executive Order 19-12. The title of this order is “Achieving More Now For Florida’s Environment.” It is a remarkable and voluminous piece.
Today, I am going to share it in full as you may have only heard about parts of it in the newspaper.
*For entire Executive Order 19-12 link here; you may wish to print out for your files: https://www.flgov.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/EO-19-12-.pdf
Here we go–
First, note the “Whereases…” giving background and laying foundation for the order.
Whereas, water and natural resources are the foundation of Florida’s communities, economy and way of life; and
Whereas, protection of water resources is one of the most critical issues facing our state and requires immediate action; and
Whereas, recent algae blooms have resulted in an increasing threat to our environment and fragile ecosystems, including our rivers, beaches, and wildlife…

Our Fairy Godmother Mary Barley
For some great amazing reason there are many of us that walk around with our water issues in our head. All day long. In our dreams. It’s what we think about when we are driving the car and when we wake up in the morning. It’s what has brought us together. The overwhelming need to fix this.
Way before we were doing this Mary Barley was on the case.
Fairy Godmothers are magically-gifted women who monitor magical forces across the kingdoms. Whenever events are right for a fairy tale to recur, the relevant Fairy Godmother steps in to make sure that the tale in question runs its course with as few fatalities as possible.
Mary Barley has been watching out for our clean water for a long time. She has fought the dragons. She has the vision of the Everglades, of clean…

Smoked Fish Dip is a staple in my Treasure Coast kitchen, a Floridian favorite appetizer or snack. I like it on Townhouse Pita Crackers with Sea Salt – my husband prefers Triscuits.
This is a spicy dip and the amounts of seasonings are a starting point, I usually add more and let the flavors blend for at least 8 hours in the fridge. I don’t eat salt, so it will probably need some for everyone else.
Treasure Coast Style Smoked Fish Dip
4 ounces smoked Mahi Mahi
2 1/2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika (I use Badia)
dash garlic powder
dash celery seed
juice of 1/2 large lemon
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
2 heaping teaspoons chopped jalapenos (I use Mt Olive)
Using a food processor, add fish to the bowl and pulse until it breaks into even small pieces, add Old Bay, smoked…

lets make a list!
This morning Trump posted this:
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) website has removed key statistics on Puerto Rico’s recovery from Hurricane Maria from its website, according to The Washington Post.
On Wednesday, just 5 percent of Puerto Rico had electricity and only 50 percent had water.
Do we have to do everything? Apparently this White House is not capable.
I have suggestions. What are yours?
FEMA works on electricity and water
Call all the volunteers red cross, salvation army etc who have received donations to put their heads together and come up with a plan.
habitat for humanity.
All states have mrcs with trained nurses. Call on states to help.

OMg! we’re getting slaughtered
The following is a texting conversation between my brother, Todd, and me, just over an hour ago. As you can see, Todd keeps me in real-time. Now, I wish to share with you.
Todd: Hi Jacqui, looks like it’s “balls to the wall” —like the old jet fighter saying.
Lake O is at 17 feet and rising…
Todd: This is normal high-end. ~4000 cfs. In 2004-2005 it looks like they maxed at 5-6000cfs. I’ll graph against the lake stage.
Jacqui: How do u know it’s 4000? I see nothing posted 4 today on ACOE site.
Todd: My app and links on my website. http://w3.saj.usace.army.mil/h2o/reports/DssWeb/rtcomps/basins/Okeechobee.htm
Jacqui: Thx that ACOE Jacksonville Lake O site doesn’t show, will go to http://www.thurlowpa.com/news.htm
