Florida Boating and The Oil Spill – The Coast is Clear – Jump In!
Marinas and other boating related businesses in Florida’s Panhandle area are reporting greatly depressed sales. This is very frustrating for many business owners in that area as the effect of the oil spill has thus far been minimal. What is even more frustrating is the fact that it has depressed the boating industry in many other areas of Florida where there has been absolutely no sign of oil. Not a single tar ball related to the oil spill has washed ashore outside of the Panhandle area. The vast majority of Coastal Florida remains oil free. However many businesses throughout Florida have reported cancellations or changes in plans related to boating activities. This is really a shame and can only be blamed on the uncertainty and lack of clarity about the quality of the water brought on by an overactive news media. On the bright side for many years the planet has some how found a way to withstand and even bounce back from much worst oil spills. For example in 1991 Iraqi forces purposely spilled over 500 million gallons of oil in order to slow the American invasion. The slick was four inches thick and covered 4000 square miles of ocean. Today with virtually no help from man the area is recovering with sand beaches being the area that have best recovered. Imagine how much quicker the area could have recovered if helped by man. Similar stories like an oil well explosion in Mexico in 1980 in which over 100 million gallons of oil was spilled and went on for a full year. In 1994 over 80 million gallons were spilled in Russia in a leak that lasted for eight months before it was finally noticed and repaired. In 1979 90 million gallons spilled after an oil tanker collision during a tropical storm in Trinidad and Tobago. The list goes on and on. Somehow Mother Earth has managed to find a way to deal with these disasters. Instead of pointing fingers of blame it is time for us to all band together and give Mother Earth a helping hand to clean up this latest spill.In the meanwhile come on in…the water’s fine in Florida. Have you noticed on many of the maps predicting where the spill will go that the West Coast of Florida and Tampa Bay remain completely untouched? While no one knows for sure what will happen in the days to come we at Whiteaker Yacht Sales remain very hopeful that not just the area where we are located here in Tampa Bay will be preserved but the vast majority of Florida waters will retain their beauty. Beginning early this year we have noticed an increase in boat sales and they have somehow remained steady throughout the oil spill media frenzy. If your dream is to own a boat, you’ll find some outstanding deals right now in Florida so don’t postpone that dream…the coast is clear – jump in!www.whiteakeryachtsales.com

All Saints Tickets & Atlanta Falcons Tickets 30% Off For Remainder of Season at TicketHunterOnline.com
New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) November 07, 2011
New Orleans is off to a great start this season, having a great showing against Tampa this past weekend. The Saints face Atlanta next, as all Saints tickets along with Atlanta Falcons tickets receive a huge 30% reduction at TicketHunterOnline.com with promo “WICKED”.
This weekend was an exciting one for the Saints, as their 27-16 victory of Tampa Bay shows that hard work and dedication pays off. Coach Sean Payton along with safety Malcom Jenkins illustrated the fact that the entire team is dead-set on playing their best football in November (considered the month to establish for NFL teams).
New Orleans has a big 3 game obstacle ahead of them, as they face the Falcons next, followed by the Giants and finally the Detroit Lions.
“I think our players understand this month, the month of November and the divisional games,” Payton said, when asked how the Saints would maintain the physical emphasis they had for Tampa Bay. “Purposely I think you’ve seen the league schedule more of these division games later in the schedule and I think it’s been great for the fans and for everyone following the game. But playing well in this month, the month of November and December is very important.” stated Jenkins.
Jenkins went onto mention his appreciation of the importance of the month of November, stating it has been crucial to each of his previous NFL seasons.
“This is usually the month in which you separate yourself and whether you’re going to be a playoff contender or not,” he said. “The teams that win in November are the teams that make it to the playoffs and you really position yourself as far as the playoff standings. And then in December you’re finishing the season and you already know where you are coming out of the month of November. So this is the big, pivotal month for us, especially this year. This is the defining moment of our season for us, to see where we’re going to head.” – Jenkins said.
TicketHunterOnline has responded to the past weekend by reducing all Saints tickets along with all Falcons tickets by a whopping 30% for the remainder of the season with promo “WICKED” at http://www.TicketHunterOnline.com.

The program brings new toys to children across the Tampa Bay area for Christmas.
As part of the Easter Seals Holiday Giving Tree program, children served by Easter Seals, and their siblings, submit three wishes. The wishes are put on holiday trees in Applebees restaurants throughout the Tampa Bay area and are also posted on the FOX 13 Care Force website.
Partnering with Easter Seals has been such a natural expression of a vision both organizations share, says Applebees Casual Restaurant Concepts President Franklin Carson.
