Part of utility pole just hanging by a rope at Alps Rd/West Lake Dr

@theold33: I can't post the link I think because Eric Idle says that sh** word. But "Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life" makes me happy.

"If life seems jolly rotten
There's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing
When you're feeling in the dumps
Don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle
- that's the thing.
And...always look on the bright
side of life...
(Whistle)"

Glad to see you're alright. I saw those negatives you left grove and jtsim and thought maybe the pole fell and hit you in the head. Not like you to leave negs. for the five.

Haha! What negatives? On another post? Oh, that was a joke! My attempt at British humour.

Tootles! Smile

@nowheregirl: Howdy! Thank you for your wishes.

Yes, it just looks dangerous to me.

Well, please enjoy some Monty Python and Paul Hogan and eat a sandwich. Smile

And what's this about a dance?

This kind?

Or this kind?

Edit: Oops, nevermind, I can't show that can I?

Hi Miss Nowheregirl. I hope that you are fine.

I'm sorry everyone that I've not been posting. When I couldn't post anymore, I stopped visiting the site.

I went by the location on Alps yesterday and the pole was still hanging.

CNN Report - Plant Vogtle

This is worth watching.

Hi nowheregirl and theold33 and grove600 and jtsim. Thank y'all for posting.

I'm sorry. I've been talking with a nuclear physicist about Plant Vogtle and lots of neat stuff, at where of all places? ADD Drug! I love ADD Drug! There is so much to learn every day.

And then I ran outside in my underwear to see the aircraft flying over Athens.

I have to view Athens Talks in author mode in my Opera viewer and it's a bit hard to read, so what's this about a pole dance?

Smile

Same kind of "news." Who cares?

A "real" news site. Wow...

Yet the Athens Banner cannot write a simple 300 word story about a dangerous utility pole.

    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.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
