Animated South Florida perpetual calendar



Last year I produced a special project that proved to be popular with readers. It was a humorous look at South Florida culture as visualized in the form of a twelve-month calendar that could be reused over and over, since some of the things that distinguish our unique habitat never change.

Thanks to the help of some very talented people who have forgotten more about computers than I will ever learn, we are gradually animating the entire calendar, month by month.

Click on the blue word "January" below the thumbnail above to view the animated month of January. That's my voice you hear doing the narration.

Hey Chan - Thanks for running this as a calendar poster. I had to buy several papers that day just to send to my family up North and now they visit the site everyday to read your blog (which was long overdue btw!). Keep up the fine work. You are truly a talent.
