2 Georgia Tech students robbed on campus street

Georgia Tech is a gun free zone....so it is basically like shooting fish in a barrel for the criminal element....

Let the students carry legally, and this kind of crapola will melt back into the shadows..... Stare

Lost students rescued from gator-infested swamp

My Dad got lost in the Okeefenokee Swamp when he was a teenager....was supposed to be a two night camping trip with the canoe....not sure exactly, but it was about five or six days later that he made his way out....he had camping gear and fishing poles with him.

Glad he made his way out...or else I would never have been born!..... Big smile

Some school districts quit healthier lunch program

When I was a child, we were trained to eat what was put before us, and be grateful we got what we got....there was NO turning down perfectly good food.

Backyard chickens? A hard-boiled assessment

Having a backyard coop can be heart-breaking also...be careful of predators....you will be surprised who will be attracted to the flock....

Raccoons Possums Foxes Coyotes Hawks Snakes Cats Dogs

I have lost chickens to most of the above listed predators.....make sure that the night-time coop is like a fortress.....they are sneaky, those predators, i.e. a raccoon will reach through chicken wire and grab a bird from underneath or sides of the cage, pull a wing off in no time. Possums pry at doors to get in, etc.....

Learn from my mistakes....build a sturdy coop with no way for a killer to get in....

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
