Mayor Brown’s Learn2Earn and Social Media

Teaching Social Media safety, dangers of
Cyberbullying, Sexting and Texting the
realization from talking to teens in
attendance at Mayor Alvin Brown’s
Learn2Earn Experience at University of
North Florida; parents are not engaged as
they should be.  
Summer is not the time to let the brain drain,
but to rejuvenate and invigorate. Parents don’t
let Social Media take the place of learning
opportunities and importantly family time.

Technology and Social Media:
Social Media is playing a part in the dynamics
of families so parents must be aware, cautious and
diligent in keeping Social Media content safe and
friendly. Technology has become so invasive that
children will carry their phones and tablets everywhere
texting, photographing, video recording and interact
with their friends even while participating in family

I ATE THE WINNING JACKSONVILLE KINGFISH

I ATE THE WINNING JACKSONVILLE KINGFISH

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- On Thursday night, I ate "a winning Kingfish" from the 32nd Annual jJacksonville Florida Kingfish Tournament.  Okay, it wasn't actually the winner, but this fish shared cooler space with "a winning fish."  It wasn't the biggest fish of this tournament, but it was still a winner to me.  I'd have to say that it didn't taste any different to me.  I dipped it in egg yolk, covered it with breadcrumbs, and then pan fried it.  YUM!
