Daylight Savings Time is for the birds. I am with all my peeps out there who have sent emails asking for the state to do away with this sleep-sucking, body-crushing measure. Solidarity, y’all. NBC News is talking about Cobb County and how it could be a forecast of our State’s changing political climate. This woman took the desire to have a selfie to a whole other level…of stupid. Harris County alone has had over 750 DOT 18-wheeler dump truck loads taken to Ellerslie Park in the last week. The clean up from last weekend’s tornado is going to take Georgia and Alabama months, and possibly years, to fully complete. Technology and research are powerful tools for creating a cleaner and healthier world. David Shafer has joined a growing field to run for the State GOP’s top position. The Georgia House passed the Heart Beat Bill. The Georgia Senate passed a bill that would take the control of the Atlanta Airport away from the City of Atlanta. Y’all, there is water on the moon. This is worse than my mom texting us to tell us a family member has died. This company has an aggressive clean energy plan and this is how they plan to accomplish their goals.

That’s gotta be worth at least a 1/2 mil property tax reduction. I bet they’ll just buy more toys with it instead. http://www.walb.com/2019/03/08/lowndes-co-deputies-seize-more-than-k/ March 11, 2019 7:15 AM Log in to Reply xdog Maybe they were disoriented by DST. If I had to move $500K physically, I’d hire some kids on spring break who know how Americans drive on interstates, or I’d box it up and ship it.

If my Milwaukee summer calendar recall is correct, this falls between the closing of Summerfest and start of Fest Italiano. Also the MLB all-stars normally play around that time. So they have the arena and attached convention center, The Summerfest Grounds, The Baseball stadium, State Fair grounds, Milwaukee Mile grounds, The Milwaukee Art Museum, the zoo, the domes, the aquarium, the civic center, the performing arts center, Pabast Theater, the Pabast and Pfister Manisions, the national skating grounds, 3 major local parks and golf course, The Old Solder’s Grounds, local company head quarters, and buildings at UWM, Marquette, MSOE, MIAD, Concordia, Averno, Mount Mary, and about a dozen more colleges., Plus some major locations with in 50 miles like Road America, The Kolher Club, Holy Hill, The Johnson Wax Building, Alpine Valley (Phish Reunion?!?) and dozens more. March 11, 2019 2:06 PM Log in to Reply Ellynn All the big corporate type folks who want to fly in on their private jets and have the 5 star treatment, Book now… Just a 50 mile trip down I-43 to down town Milwaukee. Better plane service too. https://www.americanclubresort.com/ March 11, 2019 2:55 PM Log in to Reply Mr. Bear While much of Milwaukee has any number of delights to offer the visitor, the big question remains whether the Wisconsin State Fair will be in the general vicinity at that time. Say what you will about local cuisine, it is the cream puffs that are literally to die for. And, should they be available during the Convention, just which offended special interest group will be outside the vending stand? March 11, 2019 11:30 PM Log in to Reply Ellynn State Fair is 5 miles from the downtown and a few weeks later. Not to fear, any bakery, local café, coffee house and even grocery store – will have crème puffs. I think any good cook or baker has the state fair recipe (I do). I am never in want of a cream puff regardless of when I fly into MKE or wherever in Wisconsin I travel. March 12, 2019 10:44 AM Log in to Reply Ellynn Per my source who has Buck’s season tickets, The Arena has a Cream Puff vender. Convention saved. March 12, 2019 3:02 PM Log in to Reply Mr. Bear Yes, but who is it that will be offended by the cream puffs? PETA because of dairy cattle? Labor unions because the puffs are not union-made? The Surgeon General? Just mentioning the cream puffs makes my A1c go up. March 12, 2019 11:15 PM Log in to Reply Add a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
