You Spin My Head Right Round

When you’re commuting in Georgia, it’s generally because (with apologies to Flo Rida) you’ve got people to see, and your time is precious.

I didn’t live in Georgia back in 1976, and the odds are good that you didn’t either. The state’s population back then was five million, roughly half what it is today, and over the past...

Happy Birthday to Teri!

There’s only one Smyrna City Council member who truly lives up to the ethos of being a workhorse, not a showhorse and that’s our own Teri. According to Facebook, today is her birthday so wish her a festive time on this her day of jollification. PS: In honor of Teri’s birthday I did a YouTube […]

’24 Frames’ in a second …
