    No problem. Our incumbent Florida House Representative has a rolodex fat with experts from Texas she can consult should we Floridians need 'guidance' in such matters.:roll::bang:

    thanks Beauty. I saw that McLain's remarks about his experience with spill response operations made an impression . A sacrificial beach is some place to divert the oil to during a spill. SWCC provided the same link (as above) today in a fb discussion. The column was written by David McLain in July 2009 and published by the Destin Log.
    here it is in full:

    Early days but wow
    Perhaps those pushing the other alternatives like our food sources and other too expensive not ready yet options would like to keep it a secret

    More states, more filling stations this ones a winner

    The Hands Across the Sand Facebook page has attracted so many people from all over Florida (and around the country). Posts from people from different beaches everywhere raise the excitement of the event - this is not just a local issue!

    Some good articles and links are posted as well.

    See y'all at the beach on Saturday!:wave:

    Yes, nothing like paid big oil trolls. Guess the profits need to go somewhere.;-)

    I'm curious if Satan still requires a blood signature or if he's modernized and accepts a digital signature on the contract?

    That's awesome Bobby! Here's a link to a google map of all the beaches in the state

    Many beaches on the east coast are being organized by Surfrider members!! Also Chambers of Commerce, Housewives, College Students, Business owners and Former and Current Legislators!

    I hope we get some aerial shots from the different beaches all over Florida.
    Great organization with this map, Dave, good visual.
    I am extremely excited about the participation statewide and beyond.
    Thanks, surf on dude.
    Thanks to everyone for protecting the beaches.

    I know that South Walton's beaches will be photographed and video taped. So don't panic when the Sheriff's helicopter flies over. ;-)

    You and your husband should join us at Sea Bluff if you are so inclined. You would be most welcome. Afterall, you only live practically across the street. Please come and descend and climb our 69 steps with us.:D All others are welcome as well.
