Flori Happenings

In Xanadu did Kubla Khan

A stately pleasure-dome decree:

Where Alph, the sacred river, ran

Through caverns measureless to man

   Down to a sunless sea.

So twice five miles of fertile ground

With walls and towers were girdled round;

And there were gardens bright with sinuous rills,

Where blossomed many an incense-bearing tree;

And here were forests ancient as the hills,

Enfolding sunny spots of greenery.

St. Pete Stuff

Peter, who was also known as Simon Peter of Cephas, is considered the  first Pope. Despite his papacy, Peter had humble beginnings and became  one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus. He was ordained by Jesus in the  "Rock of My Church" written in Matthew 16:17-18, which says, "Jesus  replied, 'Simon son of Jonah, you are a blessed man! Because it was no human agency that revealed this to you but my  Father in heaven. So I now say to you: You are Peter and on this rock I  will build my community. And the gates of the underworld can never  overpower it.'" Peter was a native of Bethsaida, near Lake Tiberias and was the son  of Jonah. He and his brother Andrew were fishermen on Lake Genesareth.  The Bible chronicles when the brothers met Jesus in Luke chapter 5,  which reads: "Now it happened that he was standing one day by the Lake of  Gennesaret, with the crowd pressing round him listening to the word of  God, when he caught sight of two boats at the water's edge. The  fishermen had got out of them and were washing their nets. He got into  one of the boats -- it was Simon's -- and asked him to put out a little  from the shore. Then he sat down and taught the crowds from the boat.

Welcome the new folks!

It's a beautiful day in this neighborhood,
A beautiful day for a neighbor.
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?...

It's a neighborly day in this beauty wood,
A neighborly day for a beauty.
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?...

I've always wanted to have a neighbor just like you.
I've always wanted to live in a neighborhood with you.

So, let's make the most of this beautiful day.
Since we're together we might as well say:
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?
Won't you be my neighbor?
Won't you please,
Won't you please?
Please won't you be my neighbor?
