Happy Thanksgiving weekend from our home in Sanford, Florida, to yours around the world via HeadlineSurfer.com
SANFORD, Fla. -- It has been a great Thanksgiving weekend here in Central Florida, though a little on the cooler side. But it sure beats that snowstorm my family and friends got hammered with in the Northeast.
My wife, Serafina, and I had Thanksgiving with her mom and two siblings and their families in nearby Lake Mary, here in Seminole County.

DAYTONA BEACH -- For some reason, I feel energized on this Thursday morning after crossing the St. Johns Bridge from Sanford into Volusia County. Perhaps it's the warm Florida sun. After all, one of the things we Floridians love is the sunshine.
