Florida State Square And Round Dance Convention 2019

We had a great time at convention but I sure am wore out!

Silver Fox Squares Square Dance Club

This past weekend we had the opportunity to attend the 65th Florida State Square and Round Dance Convention 2019. Our talented callers, Ken ‘Silver Fox’ Perez and Shane ‘Little Bear’ Perez, had a few calling spots and everyone seemed to have a great time dancing to them as well as the other callers that were there.

Here is a quick slide show of some of the pictures we took while we were there.

There are also some more pictures on this site HERE.

We are looking forward to another exciting state convention in 2020. For information on this please click HERE.


If you missed the chance to dance to these great callers you can still dance to them on Mondays at the Mandarin Marauders or on Fridays at the Silver Stars. We look forward to seeing you in a square!

Silver Fox Squares: June 2018 Update

Another great month for our square dance clubs.


The Silver Stars have had many great visitors from area clubs like the Dixie Dancers in Lake City and the Salty Bobbers in Steinhatchee. On May 12th we also had local callers and a cuer in the hall along with caller, Sheila Terhune, from Indiana. Then on May 26th they held a Memorial Dance where some of the dancers got together to earn a Mummy Dangle by wrapping the caller in toilet paper and festive red and blue streamers. The Salty Bobbers also held a banner raid and took the club banner back home with them.

Our Silver Fox Squares in Starke have been DARK and will continue to…

November Sentence a Day

Oh my gosh! I love this idea!

No Delusions of Grandeur

This is my third month keeping track of our daily happenings by recording a sentence a day. Have you heard of this type of journaling? It’s just the right amount of commitment for me since life is cray-cray up in this house.

If you want to join us, link up with your Sentence a Day post at the end of this post!


  • Today was my daughter’s big gymnastics competition! She won third place in three events, fifth place in one event, and was fifth all around! Her team won second!


  • I feel like our house has been a disaster for months. We spent today grocery shopping, catching up on laundry, and cleaning up the house.
  • The boys and I went to a friend’s birthday party and they had running trains all over their property for the kids to ride! My boys were in HEAVEN!


  • A normal day at home. We…

Upside down cake

I like the idea of using the raisins instead of cherries…. this would probably work with my Pineapple Upside-Down Cake recipe as well.

Cooking Filipino in the UK


This is supposedly pineapple upside down cake but as you can see there are more raisins in it than pineapple (because I love crusted raisins, that’s why!).  And yes, I use raisins instead of maraschino cherries for two reasons: 1) cherries are expensive, 2) it’s only me who’d be eating the cake if it’s cherries that are in it.  Speaking of costs, back home home when I was a kid, I’d often wish my mom would used tinned pineapples when she made upside down cake (I thought that was posh)–but it was cheaper for her to buy fresh pineapples and boil them in syrup!

As you can see from the pictures below, this is an easy recipe–no need to caramelise the sugar (‘learned this from my mother).  Just sprinkle the demerara sugar on a greased tray, arrange your raisins and pineapples (I could not be bothered with presentation as this…

What a great month! We have had several wonderful dances at our new location.

You can find us on Fridays at the First United Methodist Church at 200 N. Walnut St. in Starke.

We held our first dance there on October 6th. We had some special visitors from NEFSARDA who joined us as we presented toys to the Basketball Cop. The toys had been collected at the 5th Saturday Dance in


Then on October 13th we held a special Friday the 13th/Black Cat Dangle Dance. We had Mr. Ellis Lindsey as our guest caller. Some of the dancers dressed in costume. We had a great time dancing, to our favorite callers, with Yoda, a Devil, a Police Officer, and a couple of cute cats.

Silver Fox Squares: October 2017 Update

Silver Fox Squares Square Dance Club

We had a rough start to the month of September and were forced to cancel dances in Starke and Ft. White due to Hurricane Irma. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of those affected by the recent storms.

On September 22nd we had a dance and NEFSARDA came to retrieve the banner that our club had received at the previous 5th Saturday Dance in July. There was plenty of dancing and good times to be had by all.

Many of the dancers met afterwards at Powell’s Dairy Freeze for a bite to eat and some sweet treats. Everyone is always so very nice to us there.

During the week of the 29th we were informed that FEMA would be using the Bradford County Senior Center and all activities had been cancelled, which included our square dances.

Not to fear as arrangements were made  to start dancing at the…

We want to thank everyone who attended for making this dance such a success. We really enjoyed having you join us for food, fun, and fellowship! We also want to thank our club members who provided the wonderful refreshments. Everything was delicious!

Last night, May 9th, kicked off our new classes in Ft. White. We had plenty of delicious food like lasagna, sweet n sour meatballs, cabbage and sausage, chili, and too many desserts to list.

We had such a great time on Friday, May 5th, at our Sombrero/Crazy Hat Dance. We had several visitors from other clubs and almost everyone had some kind of interesting hat.  (Some of us had more than one hat which we swapped out during the dance.)
