Here Be Monsters!

I enjoy the journey of blog.  Each blog I contribute to or author has specific causal content.   It's the blender's FL blog: here be monsters!   "WTF?  What monsters?  Where?" Illuminating: the true etymology of "here be monsters" was a designation of territorial waters uncharted by ancient mariners on navigational charts.   [Incidentally; Here Be Monsters! is a novel written and illustrated by Alan Snow. Subtitled An adventure involving magic, trolls, and other creatures, it is presented as Volume I of The Ratbridge Chronicles.]  Which a smart fella or lady might apply, from time to time, right here, too.  There are several references to "here be monsters" throughout the web and in the normal locale of books, yet the original should be applied here: uncharted or unwell charted (waters=politics) in my part of FLORIDA!  Liberal progressive hopes for Florida.
