Florida Authentica
Florida Authentica
If your idea of the Sunshine State experience is to watch a college kid in a sweltering mouse suit pass out on an August day, you need to get off the painted concrete and out into the Authentic Florida of Lakes, Rivers, springs and state and national parks. You need to read humor columnist Ron Wiggins’ hilarious “Field Guide to the Unique, Eccentric and Natural Marvels of the Real Sunshine State”. For the price of a tank of gas and trifling park fees, you can have more fun than a barrel of sun-stroked theme park mascots.
Yes, I want to read all 52 of Ron’s Florida Adventures because I too, would like to snorkel in a herd of manatees too lethargic to stampede, and sift the gravel of the tannin-darkened Peace River for fossils while pretending not to think about alligators. Click here to buy your ready-made: “We don’t need no stinking day passes” bucket list!


Iowa Nice
Iowa Nice
Genial Jokes for a Gentle People
Sure, Iowans are nice, but what else would you expect from Midwesterners who grew up minding their manners, moms, scoutmasters, 4-H leaders, and earning perfect attendance Sunday School pins? You'd be nice as pie too if your life was filled with community sings, ice cream socials, taffy pulls, and riding your bunting-festooned bicycle in Independence Day Parades finished off with a real stem-winder of a patriotic speech and fireworks to knock your socks off. Is this a laughing matter? Yes! Iowans represent our better selves, the big brothers and sisters we wanted to look up to. Now here's the joke: Iowans don't think they're anything special. A book extolling their bedrock values would only embarrass them. This book: Iowa Nice-The Up with Iowa Joke, salutes Iowa in the only way tolerable to a self-deprecating Hawkeye-by kidding the pants off them. In a nice way.

The first chapter is on me. If you have friends who still slide in their socks on slippery floors and sniff Juicy Fruit wrappers, it would be churlish not to let them in on the fun!
