Recession affects 4th of July Celebration

The Miami-Dade Park and Recreation Department announced earlier this week that the 4th of July celebration at Amelia Earhart Park will not occur this year, due to the economies downfall.

The celebration normally featured activities in the park like their farm animal, paddle boat rides, dog park, and included concerts by famous Latin performers.

Unfortunately, the city of Miami-Dade could not come up with enough sponsors to fund the event.

The Milander Park 4th of July event is still taking place at 6 p.m. There will be entertainment and live music. Fireworks and laser show starts at 9 p.m. Arrive early or you will be left out without a seat!

Miami ranks 7th for agressive drivers

After four years of being ranked number one for the most agressive drivers, Miami comes in at number 7. The Big Apple now takes the number 1 spot on the list, with New York drivers being known for losing their temper on the road. Miami does however, win the number 1 spot where drivers are most likely to be seen putting on make up, reading, or shaving while on the road. Read more via MSNBC to see what states had the most pleasant drivers.

From personal experience, I have seen drivers do all sorts of crazy things behind the wheel, from applying mascara, to eating, drinking, or having one foot out the window. There is a saying that goes, "If you know how to drive in Miami,you can drive anywhere." Though a lot of people assume this saying applies to them because quote "they know how to drive", when they really don't. And I will admit, I have had my share of road rage from time to time. Perhaps what gets to me the most is when someone in a scooter, going 30 mph, is on the road with 10 cars stuck behind them with no lane to pass around. Although, I won't dare to make any obscene gestures or scream aloud to someone because the truth is you never know when a crazy person might pull out a weapon. In general, Miami coming in seventh place is not that bad considering we could have been downgraded to a higher spot like second or third place. Nonetheless, always remember to drive safely.

If you have witnessed obscene gestures, profanity, lipstick, shaving raizors, etc. flying out of sun roofs/car windows, let us know your experience. Even if it's sharing your most agressive moment on the road.

No Doubt w/ Paramore and The Sounds

Last Wednesday I attended the No Doubt concert - currently touring with Paramore - at the Cruzan Amphitheater in West Palm Beach. The band has not toured or collaborated in over 5 years, after the band mates decided to focus on individual careers for some time. Now on tour, they do not sing of a new album, but to gain inspiration from their fans to write.

The Sounds opened up for both artist and it was my first time hearing of them. They performed about a 20 minute set and I was left wanting to purchase their c.d. Paramore performed for about 30-40 minutes. The set included the more popular songs "CrushCrushCrush","That's What You Get" and “Misery Business” from their c.d. titled, Riot. Ending the show with "I Caught Myself" ( featured in the movie, Twilight) the teeny chicas were going crazy, as I'm sure images of Edward Cullen were coming into mind. Nonetheless, the band proved they have enough star quality and talent to stick around for the long run. Look out for lead singer, Hayley, as she is a star in the making.

No Doubt was nothing less than amazing! They played their greatest hits album, starting the night off with "Spiderwebs," continued by hits like "Don't Speak" and "Just a Girl". The stage design was amazing, with a huge movie screen featuring short fun movie clips, music videos, and personal videos of No Doubt during performances that made for great visual effects. Gwen Stefani was super nice as she took the time to autograph and accept gifts from fans standing up front. Stefani showed off her 10 pushups (famous from the Tragic Kingdom tour), and drummer Adrian put on his old time ballerina tutu with black lipstick on his lips. No Doubt was full of energy, personality, and talent, proving they had not lost anything throughout the career break apart. There was not an empty seat in the house, including the lawn, and everyone was on their feet. I am sure fans are eagerly awaiting the next album and tour as much as I am. Here are my favorite pictures.

Enjoy!

Your Hialeah Moment

Spotted on 49 street. I wonder if a "La Mami2" is out there.

Picture Of The Week

I'd like to start a new section on here called "Picture Of The Week." Depending on the volume of pictures I take, I may post a picture everyday.

The picture featured is of sunflower plants (obviously)that I grew in my backyard. I planted several seeds about 2 months ago and the first sunflower opened up 3 weeks ago. The rest are still growing very healthy and have yet to sprout open.

I'd like to note, that day was beautiful weather out, unlike all the rain we've had lately.
