Florida is relatively young, geologically speaking. The oldest surface exposures are around 45 million years old. This would be the Ocala Limestone. In certain areas there are caves that form in the Ocala Limestone, and in those caves there will occasionally be incredible calcite crystal growths. In this video I'm exploring the banks of a river that have some of these caves, and every once in a while a nice cluster will fall out of one of the cave walls. These aren't the typical caves you'd think of, they are very small, but the calcite is mighty! Here it forms in a very interesting "cube" like structure. This is probably my favorite calcite crystal structure I have ever found. Hope y'all enjoy! Thank you for watching!

In the last two years, we have been seeing a very rapid increase in families and individuals relocating to the Tampa Bay Area.

There are many reasons why someone would like to live there. The most common reasons are the weather, job opportunities, and most important the lifestyle.

The Buccaneers continue to look like contenders, handling business again. Antonio Brown looks like a legit number one receiver option, and their defense looked menacing again. The consistency on defense is their biggest of issues, but once you're in the playoffs it's literally one game at a time and all the stats are out the window. The Dolphins looked like a true playoff team coming into this season and now with the injury of Tua and overall struggles, their season seems to be in jeopardy. #NFL #Dolphins #Buccaneers #AmericanFootball

Florida CANE Distillery in Ybor City in Tampa, Florida is an independent distillery with a lot of local character. From Florida inspired flavors to the stylish local artistry of the labels, this small-but-mighty distillery provides a lot to be discovered. In this video, we step inside Florida CANE Distillery to sample and review their experience and some of their delicious vodkas, Rums, Moonshines, and Whisky. Although we have been to this location several times, this was the first chance we’ve gotten to enjoy one of their tours. Their spirits come in flavors ranging from Key West Lemon & Lime to Orlando Orange and Palm Beach Pineapple and are all pretty delicious. They get these flavors from local produce growers here in the state of Florida. Although, José does enjoy their Red Drum Bourbon Whiskey. In addition to their tours and tastings, Florida CANE Distillery is now also a full bar offering different cocktails made from their quality spirits.
Around the turn of the century (late 1800's - early 1900's) the medicine was typically made up of things you couldn't quite call medicine... such as morphine, alcohol, etc. That's part of what makes looking for antique bottles so fun. All of the strange and unusual things they would have! In this video I found a bottle of Dr. Thachers Liver and Blood syrup. It claimed to cure headache, nausea, dizziness, and tons of other health problems. Read what this advertisement for Dr. Thachers Liver and Blood syrup said: "Headache? Nausea? Dizziness? Biliousness? Constipation? Lazy and good for nothing most of the time? What you need is a shaking up of your "innards" and a gingering up all over. The thing that'll fix you up is: Dr. Thachers Liver and Blood Syrup" Isn't that insane?! Anyways, hope y'all enjoy this adventure. Thank you for watching!
