The best damn show on television? Swarms of promiscuous insects that eat the paint off your car? Peanuts? Peaches? Diabetic-coma inducing tea?

Yep, I see "Georgia" and my mind definitely zeroes in on "Guidestones" first and foremost.

Ride a cock-horse to Banbury Cross,
To see a fine lady upon a white horse;
Rings on her fingers and bells on her toes,
And she shall have music wherever she goes.[2]

I have to say Atlanta is a cool city.
The first stop for me when I arrive is a peach store and off to the Marta!



I may have that backwards.

North Carolina...at present we be best known for not wanting to share our bathrooms with others. Simple fix is needed here. Unisex bathrooms statewide. We also have BBQ.....East & the other type.(yuck). Got to be vinegar based. Basketball, lots & lots of basketball. 2006 Stanley Cup Champions ( Hurricanes). And some of the best damn folks I have ever known. We got the mountains & the beaches. The International Civil Rights Museum. The sit in occurred at this site. Great universities and great hospitals, Duke Medical Center, Baptist Hospital in Winston Salem. I could go on and on about my home. To me it's the greatest place on earth. I like calling North Carolina home. But, if Hillary Clinton is elected to potus....I'm long gone to my brothers & sisters up north.....around Calgary I suppose. Looks like beautiful country.
