Owen has changed his venue to Eddie Owen Presents in Duluth, but nothing about his philosophy or community involvement has changed a bit. Well, except that it’s expanded. Owen is partnering with the Gwinnett County Public Library in presenting their 2013 Fall Into the Arts Program.
I love that we have places like McDaniel Farm where we can recreate down to earth activities of the past whether anyone remembers them or not, but no computer generated simulator, no matter how high tech, can ever recreate that feeling of being up on the roof.
Grandparents Day inspires grand ideas
Labors of love. I see them happening all over the county. And many of them are being performed by our young people.
So mean were the Vikings that a prayer was written specifically to protect victim’s from their wrath. And no one would even think of saying anything that might offend them, especially if it might sound like an ethnic stereotype. (Don’t know if the Vikings really cared, but why take chances?)
Yes, I know there are farmers markets all over the county and they offer all kinds of wonderful locally produced goods. What makes HLM unique is that all orders are placed online. No matter what the weather, no matter where you are, and no matter what time it is, you can order online and pick up your goods all boxed up and ready to go in either Lilburn or Lawrenceville.
I enjoyed reading Darrell Huckaby’s column this past Saturday about his childhood memories of going back to school, even though I didn’t relate to even one of them. I grew up in a school system that provided our supplies.
A column in last week’s paper brought back memories from my own time being affiliated with the Gwinnett County Swim League.
The farmers market in Lilburn is proof that markets like it have become more and more progressive over the years. Food isn’t all they feature anymore.
I’m sure we all have ideas like that, but just don’t know how to get them out of our brains and into the marketplace. That’s where the Inventors Association of Georgia comes in, where inventors, marketers and vendors gather to share connections, resources and advice about getting things done.
In 2010, Tom Kincaid wrote a letter to the editor in the Gwinnett Daily Post suggesting that volunteers could help assist their government through its financial struggles. From that letter came an idea that is now in the works -- a free website to publicize charities and volunteer opportunities.
After writing about Quilts of Valor last week, I thought a "blanket" column about all the military support in and around Gwinnett County was in order
QOV meets third Thursdays at St. Lawrence Catholic Church in Lawrenceville.
Some people say I over analyze things. Maybe I do because I have lots of questions for which I can't find answers even on the Internet. So I'm turning to my readers to help me out.
A great example of volunteerism, family style.
