I am Florida Independent. I love to blog about everything and anything that can help people live a better life. I live in Florida and my family is the most important thing in my life. I love to travel with my wife and three kids and blog about my knowledge and experiences. I collect coins and bullion and love watching, playing, and coaching football.
