October 27, 2012 – Pam Begins Executing Her Duties As An Honoray Mayor Candidate

11 am – Attended Fancy Frock ribbon-cutting ceremony. This was my first in an on-going series of “highly encouraged” appearances.  The unique selection of gowns and dresses made me want to say “Yes” to all of the dresses.  Honorary Mayor candidates are encouraged to attend all chamber functions and to promote Shop Local First.   Candidates are asked to create and promote their own fundraisers.  [see associated post – Honorary Mayor’s Race Rules]

3 pm – Later in the day I attended the Pet Halloween Costume Contest hosted by East-West Animal Hospital at Seneca Apartments in Lutz.  This is FUN!

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

Hi Everybody,

The old-timers on the Lansing (MI) Fire Department will whimsically recall this new recruits uniformed a** (literally!), up in the air most mornings, bent over the big trash bins, digging through, picking out the recyclables.  It was before curbside recycling service and big fancy bins and such (1983).  I eventually placed and maintained recycling containers (cardboard boxes) in all 9 fire houses.   Now, LFD has curbside recycling.  And you do too!

Pasco County Recycling Coordinator Jennifer L. Seney, FMN, FMG reminds us all to “Curb Your Blues”. Not that it isn’t excellent and timeless advice, but she’s not referring to putting your depression on hold.  Moreover, she’s encouraging us to use those attractive Blue Bags for curbside recycling.  Thanks for all that you do, Jennifer, and of your tireless Pasco County Utilities Fiscal & Business Services Department teams over there in New Port Richey.  Thanks also goes to Eric Keaton and Ed Caum of Pasco County Tourism Development Office, who just today at the PascoCounty.com/7th Annual Tourism Summit  reiterated the close link between tourism and maintaining a pristine environment.

Pasco County has long served as a quintessential family vacation destination, also known as the Southernmost County on Florida’s Nature Coast.  Whos motto is ‘It’s Only Natural‘,  her natural ‘eco.tunities‘, international sporting events and Gulf coastal attractions [see: Vimeo.com/Nature Coast FAM], do just that  ~attract ~  a lucky several hundred thousand adventure seeking visitors each year from all reaches of the world.   As John Webb, President of Florida Sports proudly pronounces “Florida ~ Where the World comes to Play”.  To me, this also begs the difficult question.  “How can we develop our (tourism) resources while still protecting our parks and communities ~ our environment?”

Some statistics show that for every 82 tourists, 1 job is created.  But what kind of impact does that same amount of visitors have on the environment?  Theodore Roosevelt once said “Conservation means development as much as it does protection, but the nation behaves well if it treats the natural resources as assets which it must turn over to the next generation increased, and not impaired in value.”  So, in addition to awareness and education on the subjects of Tourism and Naturism, the Environment will be a concurrent theme during my tenure if I am elected as Honorary Mayor of Land O’Lakes and for the multitudes of trips around the sun into the ever after.  I would propose to Jennifer that we work closely to understand, and perhaps, take the lead in managed growth as it relates to the tourism industry.  What are they doing over there in Polk?  I’d like to hear how they’re handling  these types of things.  From what I heard at the Pasco County Tourism Summit today, I gather very well.

Kudos to Eric and Ed for an all-star line-up again this year.  It’s my 3rd Summit.  I enjoy seeing faces, known and new, and come away with new perspectives on a myriad of complex subjects concerning tourism.   Each year very different, and always informative.   Eric and Ed say good-bye to our beloved Colleen, and a cheery hello to their new assistant, Audrey.  Her inaugural Summit, Audrey’s performance was a stellar  display of efficiency and good old fashioned Southern hospitality .  Friendly as a puppy, I think she is happy to have found a new ‘home’.   Best wishes Audrey!

Peace, Love, Unity & Respect,

As a regular  Nusa SUN Magazine contributor for 2 years, my column, What’s Up Now Pam?  chronicled my journey from a rambunctious youth to a trailblazing firefighter.  Also, the how, when and why I adopted the naturist lifestyle nearly 20 year ago.

20 Easy to Prepare Delicious and Nutritious Recipes for the Au Natural Chef in YOU!

This Special Edition of Nusa SUN Magazine is a collection of my favorite What’s Up Now Pam? columns as Nusa’s Health & Fitness writer Nekkid Chef.  Witness my personal transformation from premature poor health to optimal health as I ‘bare’ my soul through my humorous take on life and epicurial anecdotes.  Beautifully illustrated color photos, I impersonate over a dozen famous  females of stage, film and history!

  • Includes Gluten Free & Vegan Recipes
  • Nudist Resort Living
  • 20% of Proceeds to Charity

What’s Up Now Pam?” was a popular column in Nusa SUN Magazine from 2010-2012.  As a Nekkid Chef, I’m currently on hiatus from my regular health & fitness column to pursue community service work as a volunteer for The Pasco International Tourism Committee (P.I.T.), a subcommittee of the Central Pasco Chamber of Commerce.  Nusa SUN has partnered with P.I.T. Committee to promote it’s international naturist tourism efforts and frequently features stories in this colorful and fun, informative and edgy magazine serving the largest nudist community in the world.

Note:  Pam is not a professional nutritionist or chef.
