Welcome to the Georgia Blog Carnival!
The bloggers featured here are all part of the extensive list of bloggers from Georgia I have listed in the right sidebar of this site. Any Georgia blogger can submit a post to the carnival, or a blogger from another state or country can submit a post for inclusion if the topic is Georgia related.
The next carnival will be published here at Georgia on My Mind on Friday, May 8th. Submissions will be due Thursday, May 7th.
If you maintain a Georgia blog and would like to host the carnival at your site e-mail me to set up a date. It’s a great way to put your own personal spin on the carnival.
The last edition of carnival can be found here and the carnival archives are found here.
Now on to the carnival:
So, is today's economic "downturn" more serious than the Great Depression of the 1930s? Over at History Is Elementary I’ve done a little research and make reference to a fairly interesting article I found in my post The Greater Depression.
I still have a couple of years to plan for my daughter’s graduation, but If you are thinking about getting your child’s Senior pictures done check out Chris Moncus’ site and see Lauren's Senior Shoot on Jekyll Island.
Over at the “Got Bible?” blog I’ve posted about Simon of Cyrene….just who was the man who carried the cross for Jesus?
Freddie Sirmans has been busy again…..Check out Great Thinker or Ranting Lunatic where he states, “The welfare state has destroyed all of that; all we have left is a sugar daddy welfare state with millions upon millions solely dependent on it for survival.” Freddie’s Lecture #2 can be found here.
Need a great story? Felicia over at Fluffy Flowers shares Dreamy Drew and the Mystery of the Poo. Oh my!
Ghosts in Lawrenceville?!?! Yep, so says Damon Ladet. Check out his post Ghost Tour - Lawrenceville, GA posted at Damon Ledet Blog.
If you are a fan of the television show Prison Break you’ll want to check out this post from Satellite TV Guru.
Paw Paw Bill provides an excellent character sketch of someone he once encountered in Egypt with his post Din! Din! Din!, and he discusses Congressional earmarks with his post Mark My Ear.
Sherry Heyl presents SE Social Media Group Announces First, Innovative Summit Focused On Social Media Issues and Use Cases posted at Mountain Social Media Summit, saying, "This is the brain child of Jon Gatrell - I am a proud sponsor and speaker at the event."
Jennifer Maciejewski presents $10 Tickets to the High posted at Atlanta on the Cheap, saying, "China's Terracotta Army leaves town next weekend, but you can still see it on the cheap before it leaves town. Take advantage of the $10 Lunch Rush tickets to the High Museum of Art. It's truly fascinating."
Steve Williams over at The Georgia Road Geek states, “Last night the 2009 Georgia General Assembly session came to a close, and for the second year in a row, they failed to pass a bill calling for any kind of referendum on a one-cent transportation sales tax. Regardless of how we feel about taxes, our elected officials have yet again cheated all Georgia voters out of an opportunity to decide this issue for ourselves.” Continue reading his worthy post, Transportation Sales Tax Referendum Failed to Pass here.
Need a place to head off to this weekend? Over at Southern Byways, Apryl Chapman Thomas provides a promising destination. Check out her post Let's Go to the Mountains with Escape to Blue Ridge, Ga.
