Have you ever thought …

In our world of hurry and worry, where can I go to find a few moments of tranquility and peace? In our world of noise and interruptions, where can I step aside for a while to find some calm for my life? There is one place nearby that I would recommend to you. For many the Monastery of the Holy Spirit is just such a place. You will find the Monastery about a half hour from Covington on Ga. Hwy. 212 near Conyers.

Chimpy and Three Sweaters

When I was a child I was given a stuffed chimp. I named him Chimpy. I know the correct term for such a thing is "plush toy," but Chimpy wasn't so plush.

Have you ever thought …

The building that was, for many years, home to Mayfield Hardware is now the home for "Your Pie". It opened on Saturday, Feb. 20, to the greatest numbers as any in the history of the Your Pie organization. The hardware store moved all its operations out to its location on Hwy. 278 several years ago. But through "Your Pie", along with a new clothing store coming in March, the old building is coming alive again.

Mountain Climbers

In 1996, a group of dedicated hikers decided to make the trek to the top of the world. Unbeknownst to the well-trained crew, a storm changed directions across the Himalayan range and arose from the abyss. Before the hikers had a chance to escape to one of the lower base camps, the horrific storm laid claim to many of their lives. This is one of many stories that support the statement that "The Mountain has the last word."

What can we learn from a ground hog?

There it is on the calendar for February 2: "Ground Hog Day." I don't know who selects which days to note on the system my smart phone uses but one of the "holidays" chosen is "Ground Hog Day." Now there is something to be noted on the calendar for almost every day. For example did you know that if you go forward a few months that April 2 is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day? Now that I had to learn on my own, my calendar does not list that one or many others. But "Ground Hog Day" was ...
