I still laugh at that story but, more important than that, it has become a life’s truth for me. Know what you are and be what you are. Don’t switch back and forth. Stick to who you are.
34th Annual Great Miller Lite Chili Cook-Off moves to Conyers
What’s been a tradition at Stone Mountain Park since 1979 will now become a part of Conyers’ annual special events attractions when the Great Miller Lite Chili and BBQ Cook-Off takes place at the Georgia International Horse Park this year.

In the year 1900, our planet held 1.6 billion people. Now, just over 100 years later, the world’s population has doubled — twice. It took an unbelievable “twelve years…to go from 6 to 7 billion” people. For scientists, that’s a sobering cause for concern — especially since humans add another 80 million people to the earth each year.
Your mind’s made up. There’s no going back once you’ve made a choice between Door No. 1 or Door No. 2. You’re not a waffler, you weighed pros and cons, and you’re confident you picked correctly. Or not.

Southern Belle Farm uses agri-tourism to grow
In 2004, the Carter family stood at a crossroads with Southern Belle farm, located on the outskirts of McDonough in Henry County. They had to choose either to sell the 330 acres of land to developers, as other farmers had done with their property during the real estate boom, or keep it in the family.
The air conditioning is on. It’s been on a lot this summer because, without it, you’d probably melt. Yes, you’re hot, and we’re not talking wow-you’re-looking-good-tonight hot. We’re talking about sitting-in-front-of-the-A/C vents-just-to-survive hot. Whew!
She said it, of course, with a smirk. Those women who really don’t understand the ways of the women of the South seem to always speak about us in words that are vividly cloaked in disdain.
It is the summer of 1865 and, according to Charlie Tinker’s diaries, it has been a summer of oppressive heat, its airless steaminess made more miserable by the heavy sorrow that he and his colleagues have shouldered since the death of their Commander-in-Chief, Abraham Lincoln.
Photographer Sue Ann Kuhn-Smith captured these images of live plant sculptures, or mosaiculture, on display at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens through October. The process involves planting thousands of annuals into soil-and-sphagnum moss filled netting covering steel forms. The plants are watered through an irrigation system beneath the surface of the sculptures and trimmed regularly to maintain their shapes. The display, staged by International Mosaiculture of Montreal in conjunction with Atlanta Botanical Garden, and dubbed Imaginary Worlds, is the first major exhibition of this kind to be presented in the United States.
Would you please be quiet for a minute? How many times a day does your Mom, Dad, teacher, or grandma say that to you?
