Tucson connections in Nashville - 11/06/13

It's been a crazy month of getting adjust here in our new home of Nashville.  One of the feel-good aspects has been the number of Arizonans who have reached out. 

For example, I got a Facebook message from John Foster.  You might not know who he is, but he's the founder of Mays Counter, a great restaurant in Tucson.  He relocated to Nashville right after we did, to establish two new restaurants here!  Nashville Street Tacos and Mays Counter - Nashville.  Can I tell you how excited I am to get Sonoran hot dogs in Nashville???

Anyhow, John is just one of many who have made me feel even more comfortable in this transistion.  I'm so grateful for that!

NETHERLANDS-MARIJUANA CAFES

AMSTERDAM (AP) -- Sex and pot won't be going together -- at least not in Amsterdam. Officials in the Dutch city have won court permission to ban marijuana cafes in the Red Light district. Marijuana is technically illegal in the Netherlands. But possession of small amounts isn't prosecuted and pot is sold openly in so-called "coffee shops." But prostitution is legal. Amsterdam's mayor argues that brothels and pot cafes lead to crime. A court ruled in favor of the mayor yesterday, saying he can take action to protect public order.

OSPREYS' NEST

SANDY POINT, Md. (AP) -- If you can't beat 'em -- build for them. That's the view Maryland transportation officials are taking. The state Transportation Authority is considering a nesting platform for ospreys. The determined birds keep rebuilding their nests in front of a traffic camera pointed at the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. Officials have tweeted they're consulting with engineers about building a platform for the nesting ospreys. Crews have removed the nests three times, but the birds keep coming back. The birds have even attacked the traffic camera, which would cost six-grand to replace. Officials say the nesting platform would be nearby, but in a place that would be safer for any future chicks.

PARAKEETS STOLEN

MANASSAS, Va. (AP) -- It's a crime wave -- for the birds. Police in northern Virginia report 13 parakeets and six parakeet eggs have been stolen from a Manassas home. It's the second time bird bandits have struck in recent months. Police say two parakeets were stolen from another home in December. A Manassas police spokeswoman says officers are pursuing at least one lead in the latest case and hope to return the parakeets to their owner.
