Me No Hablo

That’s right, it’s me, I’m back. Barrington Davis and I’m living it up in South Florida. I’m hanging out doing my thing, living with the locals and drinking up like a fool or as the locals call me Papi cullo. I don’t know what it means, to quote Kanye “Me No Hablo.”

For those of you who are wanting an update kinda thing, just know that I’m kicking butt and taking names doing what I do and then reporting it on the blog. Looking back it’s been like seven months since I’ve had a decent update post for your guys, so I guess I’ll go a little more in-depth.

The biggest thing that I’ve started to do is work with this company that helps me transfer all of my important documents to everyone all the time. Check this out his name is direct messenger service Sunrise FL. That’s the whole name of the business, and this guy delivers stuff fast.

I’m talking e-mail fast. So for those of you who don’t know. I recently got into writing scripts, be it legal or medical scripts the point being that when they need to go, they need to go fast and furious. If you are looking for the best way to get it to them, like in under an hour, I’m the guy you need to talk with because I know him and I’m not going to throw out names like it’s no big deal, know what I’m saying, player?

So I’ve just been zazzing up these documents and sending them out for use. I hang out on the beach with a laptop in my lap… top and a drink in my hand and when I’m not pounding these keys and putting the good work in, I’m hanging out and living the good life. I’m not saying it’s for everyone because if everyone started doing it, I might be out of a job. But it’s pretty sweet.

When I’m not doing that, I have my brother up in St. Augustine Aluminum, doing a whole bunch of crazy stuff with this company. It’s pretty sweet. I talk to him pretty regularly though he’s a little bit bummed out about the fact that the Packers got knocked out of playoff contention already. But that’s life I suppose. Sometimes you’re going to be up, other times you’re going to be down, and he needs to count his blessings and remember that. Go CAVS! Read More...

In My Bravado

In My Bravado

Hey yo it’s ya boy barrington Davis once again. I’m here to tell you about how I go from San Diego to Islamorada with a big update! This post is all about Islamorada, Danny Brown, and the bombest Nachos I’ve ever had.

YeahFirst off, I am going to buy a house in Islamorada. It’s as simple as that. I’m sick of this life in San Diego, and I’m ready to kick it with the fishes, the ladies, and some stone crabs.

If you’ve never had stone crabs, then you don’t know what you’re missing because it’s delicious. But I’ve given it a lot of thought. I ‘;m looking for ward to being in Islamorada, going from one beach to another.

That’s the biggest change in m,y life and I’m working with these cool cats named Coldwellbanker Schmitt. So let’s see if things work out, they certainly seem chill enough to make it work.

Danny Brown

Yo let me tell you about this hot topic. Danny Brown has one of the best albums I ever heard in my whole life. It’s got a lot of bangers in it, some real rock your head beats that make you go jungle style.

You gotta check it out. His newest album is called atrocity exhibition, and it is some of he dankest material I’ve ever heard. If you can name someone outside of Death Grips that flips the script on expectations and rhythm schizms let me know cause I wanna get banging on that!

And yes, I know who clipping is. Yes, I’ve heard their stuff, it just sounds like the LA death grips, and that’s not something I want to mess with when I’m trying to rock my groove. There are too many secrets in this mofo.

The Bombest Nachos

So while I was in Florida last time I told y’all I was checking out some cool joints. But this time I hit the cool joint right off the bat. I was checking out this place called Tijuana Flats, and they have some steak nachos that make you go BLAM, and smack the table all dramatic like.

bomb nachos Base the chips, they slap on some queso. Next you’ve got some lettuce, some tomatoes, some cheese, some guac, some steak on top with some more cheese on top and some tomatoes. Yo, I am watering at the mouth just thinking about it, and it is the bomb.

Besides the nachos, you’ve got a cool atmosphere with a bunch of papers and stuff on the walls. You’ve got some cool stuff; you know what I’m talking about. Some token stuff. Anyway, I gotta jet. IF you’re in the FLL area in the next 8 hours lmk, I’ll be there shortly. Read More...

High above the ground

DroneFlorida is a famous place. Most people have heard of it, and a lot of people have gone there before. But there are amazing ways to discover the great state of Florida without having actually to go there. We’re talking about in depth videos or panoramic photographies.

In Miami panoramic photography is beginning to boom with companies like Falcon Air Vistas creating affordable and jaw-dropping photographs for special events. Every event forms a marriage to a marathon will be able to be photographed and captured in a beautiful manner.

But how do these processes work and how do I get a hold of one myself? The process is very simple

Step one – Buy a drone. When you have your drone, just focus on driving it for a little bit. You want to get the hang of being able to truly handle this device before you go off trying to take a picture of the Mount Rushmore. There’s a lot of the ins and outs that happen with this project. So you want to aim at being a master flier before you can even think about doing anything else at the same time.

Step two – Get a camera. Then you’re going to be taking the same amount of time with the camera as you did with the drone. Consider taking a photography class but take the time to learn how to shoot the thing. You don’t want to make amateurish mistakes by not being able to know fundamentals of stabilization or positioning.

Step 3 – Do both. Now that you’ve become a certified master or at least merely a competent amateur connect the two together. This means a drone with an industry standard camera on it as well. This is an incredibly good way of learning how. All you’re going to do is just fly around and take pictures of things without breaking the setup or hurting anyone around you. Which unfortunately sounds easy but is far from it.

drones, not even oncedrones, not even once

Step 4 – Make all of the money humanly possible – If you are ready to go out and make money, go and make your company. Just be prepared for the sharp competition that is aerial photography in South Florida. Because I’ve been told that Falcon Air Vistas is the best, and it looks to be true too, have you seen their website?

I just can’t wait for the future when the drone wars happen. When everyone is too busy flying around tryi9ng to take stuff from each other. There’s apparently already drone wars in places like Colombia and Japan between yakuza and other crime syndicates trying to find new ways to escort drugs. Read More...

Holiday Party

Holidays are my favorite time of the year. Every year during the holidays, my family and I host a huge holiday party. This year we are expecting so many people that we had to rent a space for the party. Planning a party can be overwhelming, but planning a holiday party is definitely overwhelming. If your family is like my family, they like to do it big when they host an event. The preparation for this year’s holiday party started one month before the date of the party. The reason for such an early start is to make sure everything is done right. The first step that we take before we begin planning is having a family meeting to determine who is going to be in charge of what. This year I was going to be in charge of everything that needed to be printed. That meant I was in charge of finding someone to design and print.

I went online searching for a printing company that I could trust. I searched google for printing companies. I found many different companies, but the one company that seems to saScreen Shot 2015-12-18 at 12.53.13 PMtisfy all of their customers based on their reviews was this company called Cornerstone Printing. They are the number one political printing company in the entire country. All of those sounded good to me, but the main thing that made me go with Cornerstone Printing for the job is their great deals. For a company that is as well known as they are I have to admit that I was expecting them charge me an arm and a leg for printing. Surprisingly, they didn’t; in fact, they had some of the best deals compared to the competitors.

Working with them was even easier. I was able to place my entire order online in under 10 minutes. I didn’t have to call in and be put on hold. I didn’t have to deal with anyone. I just wrote a short detailed description of what I wanted them to do and that was it. After I had placed the order my job was done. It was a pretty big order, so I was a little unsure if they would be able to finish the order in one month. That was out of my hands now, all I could do at this point was wait and hope they could get the job done in time.

il_570xN.283659962A week had went by, which means they had three weeks left to complete the order. After that first week of waiting I had forgotten all about the order. I was expecting them in three weeks. Later during the week when I arrived home from work, there was a mysterious box sitting on my door steps. I wasn’t expecting anything in the mail, so the first thing I thought was they must have the wrong house. As I got closer and saw the writing on the box, it said Cornerstone Printing. I was in total disbelief; there is Read More...

Who Really Needs Plastic Barrels?

I have been a curious person all my life, even as a child. This explains why I chose this career. I could never pass up an opportunity to learn something new, meet new acquaintances or even visit new places. Normally, layovers bother me. Who wants to spend 6+ hours in the airport waiting for the next flight? However, I tend to focus on the bright side of things and automatically, my frown turns upside down.

On this perfect Tuesday evening, we landed in Chicago and the next flight was scheduled 6 hours away. I should be accustomed to my job by now, but I still find myself fatigued 17199169223_77a0804a6b_bevery now and then. Too tired to even go sightseeing. I promised myself that the next time I visit Chicago, I’d visit the great Chicago 360. The thought of being in a building that’s 1000 feet above ground tickles my fancy. Did you know that while on the 94th floor of Chicago 360, you can see up to four states and 55 miles out? Enjoying this view while fine dining is definitely on my bucket list.

As tired as I was, I just knew that the only option I had was to roam around the cafes and shops within the airport, but even that got boring. What better way to glide through the hours than hanging out at the bar? So I headed there. To my surprise, the place was packed. When I spotted an empty stool at the counter, I didn’t hesitate to take it. It’s was a strategic place to kill boredom by staring at the TV the entire time.

I am a social person and I just can’t help talking to strangers and making friends. An hour into sipping my flavored water, I noticed that the guy sitting next to me looked kind of tensed. A chat might do him some good I thought. “Hey man, I’m Barrington.” I casually introduced myself. To my surprise, he reached out to my stretched hand and gave it a firm handshake. “Nice to meet you, I’m George.” It seemed like he was open for a conversation, from anyone. Almost like he needed it. I told him I had a few hours to kill before getting back to work on the plane and that’s why I was stuck on that bar stool for more than an hour. “Oh, so you’re a flight attendant? You work in the plane?” I responded in the affirmative.barrels

He told me that he works with Youngstown Barrel and Drum Co. This is something that I’ve never heard of before. Reminds me of the perks of this job. It allows me to meet totally different people who introduce me to things I’d probably never have known if I was stuck in my hometown. I guess he knew I was green in that field and quickly added “We sell plastic barrels among other things. “This left me, even more, perplexed, I mean, who really needs plastic barrels?

Grandpa George and The Boat

When it comes to hands-on, I like to get my hands dirty. There’s nothing like the feeling you get after you spent a long time working on a project, then watching it come to life when it’s complete. Growing up, I was always fascinated by the thought that a group of small things could be used together to create something bigger.

The first time I ever worked on a handyman project, I was seven years old, and my grandpa had a small boat that he was putting together. He had started with just one piece of wood. I use to spend most of my free time sitting outside the garage and watching him work on the boat. I saw him turn a regular piece of lumber into the most beautiful sailboat I had ever seen.Our Sailboat

Grandpa George always to worked on the boat alone, and I was happy just watching him work on it. One day, while working on the boat grandpa George called me and asked me to get him a tool. I jumped up and ran to get the tool box trying to find him a wrench. Finding the wrench was the only thing on my mind. This was the first time grandpa ever asked me for help with the boat, so I didn’t want to disappoint him.

Although I was only seven years old at the time, I knew exactly what a wrench was. I went through the entire tool box, and I couldn’t find a wrench. I didn’t want to disappoint him, so I went through the tool box a second time and still, there was no wrench to be found. Grandpa called me and asked what was taking so long; that’s when I told him that I couldn’t find a wrench. His answer surprised me, because he wasn’t expecting to find one in there.

He told me to go inside and grab his cell phone for him. I ran and got the cell phone, when I gave it to him I ask “who are you going to call grandpa?” He replied and told me about a company called National Tool Supply. After he had got off the phone with National Tool, I was curious about why he had called them, so I asked him. That’s when I found out where all tools came from. National Tool is a supply company; they have tools for every hatools and suppliesndy job you can think of from construction supplies to something as simple as a screwdriver.

The National Tool Supplies company had been my grandpa’s tool supplier for the past four years, and he said they never let him down before. So a week had went by and my grandpa didn’t work on the boat, but one day he got a special delivery from the UPS guy, and it was the wrench tool that he ordered from the National Tool Supplies company. I had never seen my grandpa so happy to receive something in the mail. The National Read More...

Solar Powered Airplanes?

When I was growing up, electricity was the only form of energy we used. Fast forward 20 years into the future, and you will find more forms of energy than you can count on your fingers. Technology is a beautiful thing; it makes everything around us do what they do. One of the most popular types of energy that is used all over the world today is solar energy. Solar energy is the cleanest and most abundant renewable energy source available, and the U.S. has some of the richest solar resources in the world.Screen Shot 2015-12-18 at 1.04.43 PM

Solar energy is energy that comes from the sun, so that explains why it’s the cleanest form of energy that we use today. For the use of solar energy, companies create large solar panels that are placed on top of roofs in homes to help save on the owner’s electric bill. At first, I thought the solar panels could only be used on houses than I started hearing about things like phone chargers.

Then one day I received news that the airline company that I worked for, Spirit Airlines, were going to start using solar panels on the airplanes. It was at that moment that I realized how useful solar panels could be. At the time, I thought the news announcement was something that was going to be happening in the future. There was no way they could build that many solar panels in a short period. That’s when one of my co-workers informed me that the airline company was getting the solar panels from a company called Roller Die. Roller Dies is a company who is known for manufacturing solar panels.

I wanted to know more about solar panels, so I did some research on the Roller Die company. It turns out; they are one of the leading manufacturers of solar panels in the entire world. They specialized in anything that could use solar energy, which explained why the airline I work for chose them to work on the solar panels for the airplanes. They did more than just make the roller panels; they even made custom roll forming that the solar panels use to get direct contact from the sun.

3025215-inline-s-airplane-11Within one week of receiving the news, the airline company was introducing new solar powered airplanes. After the first month, nearly every airplane at the airport was solar powered. The use of solar power in genius, the sun has been producing energy for billions of years. It’s about times we figured how to put all of this energy to use. Solar power is a renewable source of energy unlike non- renewable sources such as fossil fuels. Solar energy technologies use the sun’s energy to light homes, produce hot water, heat homes, and electricity. The most important thing about solar power is that we are saving the planet by using it. I am proud to work at an airline company that cares. Read More...

Visiting Central Florida

Lake Whales FloridaI didn’t like Lake Wales. Check that, I liked Lake Wales, I just didn’t love Lake Wales. For years now, my baby cousin has been telling how much she loves Lake Wales and how much she wants me to visit. It’s so much fun here; there’s great food, incredible drinks, and beautiful nightlife. You’ll never want to leave,” she would explain as if she was talking about paradise. When I started traveling to Florida, I rarely heard the name Lake Wales mentioned. It was far from a top tourist attraction, and I wasn’t one to take boring trips. Over the years, my baby cousin grew more fond of Lake Wales and continued to ask me to visit. After all these years, I decided on this trip that it was time for me to finally check out what all the fuss was about.

The flight to Lake Wales, Florida was smooth. When I arrived the first thing I did was call my baby cousin. She was so excited to hear from, she made me leave the taxi, and she picked me up from the airport. As I explored the city later that day, I started to see why my baby cousin felt the way she did about Lake Wales. Lake Wales is the perfect little town for raising a family. Nature and wildlife really come to life in Lake Wales. Everything was picture perfect that day, and I was impressed. In fact, the only thing that stood out from this picture perfect day was a big truck with Petersen Industries written on the side that was parked outside near a construction sight. Honestly, I had know idea what kind of truck it was, but through a quick Google search, I realized that this type of truck was known as a Knuckle Boom Crane Loader. It’s quite strange that I didn’t know what it was, as I pride myself on knowing as much as I can. Either way, it was quite a sight and I’m always eager to learn more about a subject that I don’t know about. That’s what makes me a great flight attendant is that I love learning about the most random of things.

But my Knuckle Boom Loaderfavorite place that I saw that day was Bok Tower Garden. Bok Tower Gardens is located right in the center of Tampa and Orlando in Polk County, Florida. Which made my trip to Lake Wales even more interesting. Going to Orland was the highlight of the entire trip to me. Orlando is home to more than a dozen theme parks. Although its most know for being the home of Walt Disney World, a theme park that comprised of 4 parks, including Magic Kingdom and Epcot, and two water parks. Another major Tourist attraction, Universal Orlando, offers two parks: Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, with the Wizarding World of Harry Potter straddling both. The possibilities here are endless. After visiting Orlando, we went back to Lake Wales for the perfect Read More...

JJ’s Paradise

Now Entering Fort LauderdaleWhen most people think of South Florida, they think of places like Miami, South Beach, and West Palm Beach. When I went to South Florida last year for my 23rd birthday, I might have discovered the most beautiful part of South Florida. The beautiful city of Ft. Lauderdale is located right in between West Palm Beach and the city of Miami. Surprisingly, such great location still doesn’t bring much traffic to the city of Ft. Lauderdale. Most people who come to visit Florida, unfortunately, overlook this hidden paradise.

When I first went to the city of Ft. Lauderdale, I was trying to get away from all of the traffic on the highway. I got off on an exit that was in the city of Ft. Lauderdale; The first thig I saw was the great nightlife environment that they had down there. I wasn’t alone on the trip. I brought my best friend with me. JJ my best friend, is also my dog. I don’t always travel with him but it was winter time, and I didn’t want to leave him home alone for two weeks.

JJRiding through the city of Ft. Lauderdale that night was so beautiful that I decided to cancel the reservations that I had at the hotel in Miami, and I booked at one of the hotels in downtown Ft. Lauderdale. I knew I had made the right decision right after I booked the room. I saved over $125 by switching my hotel to Ft. Lauderdale from Miami. The only negative part of the new hotel was the fact that they were not pet-friendly. Which means I had to find a doggie daycare for JJ.

I asked the hotel manager for advice since I wasn’t from the area. She told me that she has a cousin that works at a pet grooming school in Ft. Lauderdale called Merryfield School Of Pet Grooming. She told me that her cousin is friends with most of the pet daycare centers in the city and that she would be able to find me the best place for JJ for the week. He found me the most luxury pet spa that I had ever seen in my life. It was like a vacation for dogs. This place had everything from swimming pools for the dog to even a doggie jacuzzi. I wasn’t sure if I had gotten the best deal here or if JJ had the best deal. Read More...

My Top 10 Travel Tips After 3 Years of Traveling

I have been traveling all over the world now for three years. I always knew I wanted to travel, so I gave up a lot to see my dream come true. This is a list of my top 10 travel tips for anyone who loves to travel.

Patient Is Important

Don’t worry about the things you can’t control. Life is short, so don’t be angry and annoyed all the time. If you miss a deadline, don’t worry, there will always be another one. Sometimes, freakouts sneak up on us regardless.

Practice your breathing by taking a deep breath, and remind yourself that everything is going to be alright.

Wake up Early

Rise and shine with the sun and you will increase your chances at getting all the best attractions to yourself. The soft diffuse light from the morning also makes it the best time to take the best picture.

Stash Extra Cash

Cash is king around the world. To make sure you are always prepared for all type of emergency make sure to keep a stash in some different places. I recommend that you stash a few hundreds just incase you lose your wallet or your cards stop working.

Meet Local People

Make it apoint to meet some of the locals where you are visiting. Meeting other travelers is fun too but the experience you will gain from meeting the locals is priceless.
