UGA Graduation and Mr. Blank

December 15, 2012

Mr. Blank was the co-founder of Home Depot. Now he is owner of the Atlanta Falcons, and the Blank Foundation. He is an UGA alumni, and, if I heard correctly, he has given $250,000,000 to the University of Georgia. During the graduation ceremony, Mr. Blank received an honorary doctorate of Law degree (For me, the puzzler is why he didn't get an honorary business degree, instead!) Amazingly enough, he got his start in business as a Bulldog, at the University of Georgia, cutting grass and doing laundry! (Scriptures do say not to despise humble/ small beginnings.) For those who say that some of the UGA graduates "were dumb as rocks", you should know that only the "cream of the cream" are admitted as freshmen, and that most of the students graduated cum laude (3.5/4.Innocent or better! I know that many students like Mr. Blank, and my nephew, Ryan Black, spent many hours working, which were hours that were no longer available to them to study. My hat is certainly off to these hard working students. God bless their efforts!

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.
