    Default Florida's Panhandle

    Hey, Croc, you really shouldn't put "all of Florida" together, at least not politically. The Panhandle has even been recognized TWICE by President Trump as "different" from most of Florida, once during the 2016 elections when the Panhandle, which is in Central Time Zone, swung the State in his favor. We try to refer to it as "LA" for Lower Alabama, because we tend to vote differently than the rest of the State. Also, we have one of the highest percentages of active and retired Military in the Nation. AND, we have some pretty good microbreweries!

    Hi Taber- you are quite right. I always forget about the civilized portion of Florida. I just tend to think east and south since that is where they cause all of my problems....

    Not sure whether association with Alabama is a good thing though?
