Wonder if this guy was one of the group of developers who was videotaped gambling in Las Vegas with their good buddy Kevin Kenerly? Kenerly paid everyone's way on those trips. Wonder if pay back with gambling chips was a common practice?
The Vines Gardens and the railroad are one of the best kept secrets in Gwinnett County. The gardens, the lake and house are just stunning and the railroad is a lot of fun. It's all free and a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
Don't you wish you could see the dashcam video from the donut truck chase?
There are some real horror stories about people who have smoked synthetic pot and then gone completely crazy due to lingering hallucinations or flashbacks. They are selling this stuff over the counter in smoke shops to teenagers and young people (marked as potpourri) who have no idea exactly what chemicals are in it. These kids have suffered strokes leaving them with permanent brain damage and/or permanent mental conditions. Noticed another one called "Smoke and Toke" opening right next to a Walmart grocery store in Lawrenceville the other day. Talk to your kids about this stuff....it is poison.
Favorite Broadway show would have to be "Once Upon a Mattress", but I would love to see this one too!

What a great cause! Erica Porten and Polly Mitas are bulding a swim team at Berkmar High School and reaching out to younger children in the area through this summer swim team. Of the 30 kids that signed up for the Berkmar Patriots Swim Team last year, 20 of them had never learned to swim. This new team, The Huntington Sea Dragons, will teach kids to swim and compete before they get to the high school level. It's truly a great way to give kids something to do in the summer, make them safer around water and build character through sportsmanship.
Nice story and a beautiful way to memorialize this young child. Can't wait to visit Thrasher Park and see the butterflies!
"Everyone's favorite Southern-twanged granny -- "98 pounds soaking wet" Brings back memories of my own little southern granny. So glad to hear a story about someone who forever changed the lives of everyone around her through her loving and caring actions. This is a person and a life to be glorifed and celebrated.
What a great story and what a great opportunity for a lot of kids who are "non-swimmers" to learn to swim and compete over the summer. Thanks for sharing this positive and exciting story!
