  1. The Everglades, in our very own backyards indeed, are fascinating, interesting and beautiful. A general FYI, there is a show on PBS called Wild Florida which is excellent. It used to be on Sunday mornings at 10:00, I just checked the PBS website and they have apparently switched it to 4:30 a.m. on Sundays … which is a darn shame.
