Georgia Carnival: Edition 37

Welcome to the Georgia Blog Carnival. School is out, and the summer is on.

The next carnival will be hosted here at
Georgia on My Mind on Friday, June 20th. Submissions will be due Thursday, June 19th.

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 the Georgia carnival can be found
here, and the carnival archives are found here.

Please support these fine Georgia bloggers by letting them know you have visited them with a comment. Your continued support with your links and shout-outs at your site helps to alert others to what we Georgia bloggers have to offer.

Now… on to the highlights of Georgia blogging during the past two weeks:

Have you noticed the category links on the left sidebar? So far I’ve categorized Georgia blogs into creative arts, journalism, education, lawyers, legal matters, nutrition, online media, recipes, religion, restaurants, spirituality, and sports. I have many more blogs to categorize as you can see by the ever growing list of Georgia blogs on the right sidebar. One of the largest categories is politics. While some blogs like Tondee's Tavern or Peach Pundit are most certainly political blogs, there are others that I’m not so sure about.

If you write about politics (local, state, and/or national) and want to be included in the politics category please drop me an email at with your blog name and url so I can include it. Remember that you also get a second category listing as well. However, I would venture to state that most political blogs could also be included in a category for “issues and opinions”. I hope to tackle the political category in the next few days as well as many, many more. Other categories I’ll be utilizing can be found here.

Well, today is June 6, 2008 and we are remembering D-Day once again. Over at History Is Elementary I remember my uncle and all of his comrades who spent the early morning hours of June 6, 1944 gliding into D-Day.

Katie Byrd over at is a former Atlantan living in North Carolina, but still hauls the kids back to the ATL to for weekend trips. The Atlanta History Center is one of their favorite places to visit. She offers up her post titled WWII Remembrance Day at Atlanta History Center.

Speaking of soldiers, Peach Pundit pointed me over to this post by Obi’s Sister providing information about Operation Love. A goal to send 5,000 cards, letters, emails, etc. to soldiers is a very worthy goal indeed.

Rusty over at Georgia Podcast Network shares a video journal he and Amber took through Middle Georgia this past weekend titled Things We Look For on Road Trips.

Shana from Science on TV shares her review of Man vs Wild Episode 3 - Ring of Fire.

Georgia’s own Hamilton Jordan finally lost his battle with cancer at the end of May. Paw Paw Bill provides his eulogy of Jordon with his post Rhymes with Burden.

Obi's Sister writes about Georgia’s most favored song (by many including me) “Glory, Gloria to Old Georgia”, and also lets us know what came before glory, glory.

Over at Got Bible I provide a few one liners…..Christian One Liners, that is.

Fluffy Flowers own Felicia shares a mother of a weekend where she relates her thoughts and feelings after the Mother’s Day tornados ripped through her town, and she’s trying to maintain by staying positive.

Amy presents 13 Fun (Free) Things to Do This Summer posted at The Q Family Adventure, saying, "Summer fun in GA".

Shelia Scarborough has posted Family Friendly Must Sees in Georgia over at

Over at Everything Finance you can find Five Online Resources for Forex Beginners….Forex as in foreign exchange markets.

Paw Paw Bill provides an excellent history and government lesson regarding the popular vote as Hillary Clinton took it down to the wire this week with his his post Vox Populi.

Savannah Red doesn’t want Obama or McCain mucking around with the everyday problems he faces. Afterall, don’t we have the the Ahmadinejad Strain to deal with?

Paul over at Cries of the Heart has some thoughts on suffering.

Over at Alone on a Limb Terrell shares a bit of miscelleaneous nature. Wonderful images!

I think it’s wonderful when we have a change of mind. Russell over at Beer Pong Is Never a Good Idea has had a change of mind regarding Atlanta where everyday is an opening day.
