Update July 31, 2015

The coastguard is suspending the search tonight. Here is new info. Prayers needed.




Last night instead of writing my blog I sat on Facebook with some friends listening to the Facebook Feed from JAX.

Many of you know we have two boys missing. They went out in their boat last Friday and have not been heard from since. Their boat was found way up north capsized but we are praying they had their cooler and life jackets. Last night something was going on in Tybee, Georgia. This morning the Coast Guard is going back out there.

I saw some really nasty remarks online. I know it’s hard. When something happens the first place you go is to the judging place. This is not a time for judging but a time for prayers.

Many people were upset about  the Go Fund me site. As far as I know that’s to help with volunteers in boats and planes that have been searching for these kids.

The Coast Guard will be going back out there this morning. Here is the feed.

Last night there was about 19,000 people listening to this feed with their hearts in their mouth.

Here is the Facebook Page

Find Austin and Perry

Here is a prayer candle

If they are not found this morning please if you live along the east coast please go to the beach and see if you can find anything. Lifejackets, coolers.

Please go to the Facebook page. It is being updated constantly.

For Earth Day Pick up the Garbage!



Here’s my award winning short film about an amazing group of people who pick up the garbage in exchange for keeping the dogs on the beach.

Featuring the great music of Big Vince and the Phat Cats.

What weighs 20,000 pounds and takes nearly 4,000 people to move it? The Garbage on Jupiter Beach.
 15 years ago a local resident Anita Lankler made a deal with the City of Jupiter. You let our dogs on the beach and we’ll pick up the garbage. This little group grew into a membership of 4,000 plus and became the “Friends of Jupiter Beach.” 
Once a month hundreds of people, 6 to 86, from fifteen zip codes surrounding Palm Beach County, converge onto Jupiter Beach… to pick up the garbage.

In honor of Mother Earth if you can’t get to an event don’t despair. Grab a bag and head to to your closet park or beach and fill that bag up with garbage. Imagine if the entire Martin County did this. The entire 148 thousand of us (or so). Imagine if all of Florida did this. Imagine if the whole US did this. Imagine if the whole world did this.

Lets do it!

Happy earth day mother earth
