Now… on to the highlights of Georgia blogging during the past two weeks.
Over at Exurban Adventures Buzz Brockway recently posted an interviw with Dave Ramsey. Hot topics in the interview include Ramsey’s event in Duluth, Georgia, the economy, and the state of the entrepreneurial spirit in America.
A recent op ed by Mark Burkhalter in the AJC prompted Dan over at Organize the South to send his own letter to the paper. Dan included the entire letter in his post titled Burkhalter: Idiot or Shill?
Did you see the wedding pictures of mine I posted earlier this week?
Journey of Words authored by fellow teacher Eric, is a blog that will be included in my next round of additions to the Georgia Blogroll. Eric’s post, Fifth Grade State Standards Wordle Cloud, provides a great example regarding how the Wordle tool can be used by educators. Heck, even if you aren’t an educator head on over and view the Wordle cloud…..I’m sure all bloggers could figure out a way this tool could make your writing life a little more interesting.
Our favorite Georgia Road Geek, Steve, presents I-75/I-475 Reconstruction In South Bibb County…….For those of us who travel south frequently and have wondered what has been going on at the Hartley Road interchange Steve has all the info.
Over at amo, Angela M. Otwell shares Nick and Lark…a wonderful painting.
Shane Wilson shares Beginning Investors Guide To Making Money in 2008 posted at Real Estate Investment Business Blog, another soon-to-be-added blog to the Georgia Blogroll.
Over at Barnes Storming, Brad gives us the Best of '08 (so far): Steady as they go where he discusses three…..no four… great records he has in his current rotation.
James is discussing AYP results and states,“ This Is Embarrassing” over at The Other Athens. As an educator I’d have to say I agree.
I tell ya……the Q Family over at The Q Family Adventure really gets around. This time Amy shares 13 Things to Do in Chattanooga. I love going there, don’t you?
Have you seen the television commercials where oilman T. Boone Pickens states he has the answer to our oil woes? Paw Paw Bill provides Not-So-Easy Pickens (don’t you just love the play on words there?). Click through for some background info regarding Mr. Pickens.
Tuesday is the big runoff election between Vernon Jones and Jim Martin for the Democractic nomination for the U.S. Senate. Paw Paw Bill says, “No, Thank You, Please.” You’ll have head on over to discover who is getting the no vote.
