  Back in September we did a piece on Florida bourbons in honor of "Bourbon Heritage Month." Little did we know it would lead to one of the great Christmas presents of our adult life.    There are three bourbon distilleries here in Florida, including the Timber Creek Distillery in Crestview - up in the panhandle.  We were stunned when...
   While traveling through scenic Hardee County we came across a roadside sign announcing "The Bee Barn."  Intrigued, we decided to make a visit and found a true hidden gem. The sharp-eyed Mrs. Funmeister, who also serves as the navagatrix for our trips spotted the small roadside sign.   "That looks like a fun place," she opined. I agreed and...

But how about Palmetto,  Gallberry, Sea Grape and Tupelo?  Each has its own distinctive flavor...
Sorry we have not blogged for a while, but the recent visit by Hurricane Irma has kept us pretty busy for the past couple of weeks. Here at Fun Headquarters we got blown about a bit - as it got pretty breezy at times, but save some roofing, lost fence and a lot of downed tree limbs we came...
