What a great story! When I was a kid we had a very large garden - one year we had over 50 tomato plants! My folks would order pods with Lady Bug eggs, and some with Praying Mantis. Our garden was full of those little suckers and bad bugs weren't an issue.

I remember one year, the pods came in (ordered from Mother Jones Catalog?) and the Lady Bugs had already hatched. Yes, the house was full of them for months.

And Will, the word is that the Greenbriar/Loganville game was just packed this weekend, with HR balls flying out of the "middle school" sized field where they played. I agree with your "Showcase" comment... Baseball is HUGE in this state and it deserves better.

Glad that it's about to finish up and open, but the cops need to do something about the speed from the bridge to Braselton Highway (124) intersection. Folks speed on that patch of road, going 60+ often. Then zip infront of the traffic, down to one lane through the (124) intersection. It's crazy.

But that's the problem with this stuff, it's not really "synthetic marijuana" it's sold as product not intended for smoking. Who knows what poisonous chemicals are included in this product sold in Gas Stations everywhere. Legalizing marijuana is a different subject. Good riddance to this garbage!
