I’m behind the new Alpharetta City Center 100%…..lol.
One supervisor and one worker. Its the American way..
When I was a kid in the 1960′s this was the Thomson/McDuffie county Jail House.
About 10 minutes from the house. Swallow at the Hollow. 100% great Southern Bar-B-que.
Singer-song-writer showcase and Americana music…think ‘The Loft’ on satellite radio.
Sir Richard Branson…see below.
I cannot for the life of me find the ’5 Questions’ Branson published. The questions suitable for a job applicant or the applicant to the employer… Quotes below.
‘Why a business plan is only as good as one’s first contact with a customer’.
‘What do you need to take on a giant & win? Nothing but bravery, good people & a great idea’.
‘If somebody asks why are you looking up at the sky, ask them why they aren’t looking up at the stars’.
First ‘ floor-mat’ joke of your day??
Dockerys restaurant closed this year and it happened sooner than later. I’m here with the lady who brought me my last meal. She had always been the best.. During the goodbyes I managed to take some pictures of the people who I shared the establishment with over the years but never held a conversation.
I found a great sit back with a cup of coffee on a rainy Sunday afternoon. With this piece thirty minute read is too short, great article nevertheless. Don’t let the title fool you into believing its a ‘government/political statement from the State department. It more and provocative in the light of the reality. Families apart and separated physically and emotionally, divided by juxtaposed societies and bound by their common culture.
THE ISLAND OF STOPPED CLOCKS: INSIDE CUBA 50 YEARS AFTER THE REVOLUTION
BY JACKSON BLAIR
(What you cannot see on the video is how, over the course of the next few hours, Lesley realizes she’s lost the 25 years for good. That after all this time, the history they shared is too too faint or too slight to be recovered. Entering the terminal, she felt a brief but overwhelming sense of familiarity. But after the hugs and tears subsided she felt tentative and swept up by family in name only).
Leave em’ laughing I’ve been told….Lighter side of life.
-Why does Goofy stand upright and Pluto stand on all four feet? They’re both dogs.
-Do “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” and “The Alphabet Song” have the same tune?
-On Gilligan’s Island, the professor could make a radio out of a coconut. Why couldn’t he fix the hole in the boat?
-If Wile E. Coyote has enough money to buy all that stuff from ACME, why doesn’t he just buy himself dinner?
( Ye’ve shipped, have ye? Names down on papers? Well, what’s signed, is signed; and what’s to be, will be )
Mark Twain on the press:
“There are laws to protect the freedom of the press’s speech, but none that are worth anything to protect the people from the press.”
It seems to me that just in the ratio that our newspapers increase, our morals decay. The more newspapers the worse morals. Where we have one newspaper that does good, I think we have fifty that do harm. We ought to look upon the establishment of a newspaper of the average pattern in a virtuous village as a calamity.
Just really random stuff….
