Courthouse Tour Supplement

Courthouse Tour Supplement   As I said, you have to be impressed with the new Courthouse and Administrative building complex. Overall the planning and quality seems to be very good. There was however, one point that did concern me that I needed to get some more clarification on.   There does not seem to be a Board of Commissioners public meeting room at either building. In asking the “powers that be” why there was no plan for such a room was told first that the Board meetings were going

New Courthouse Tour May 2, 2008

With all politics aside as to the way the new Courthouse and Administrative buildings where approved and the issues facing the Facilities Group, I have some distinct impressions of Paulding County’s new facility.   I was able to spend over 2 hours in a guided tour of our new government complex and I must say I was impressed. The design and construction of the buildings is well thought out and will be a point of pride for years to come.   The two buildings were designed especially for Pauld

Signs

Well, this week is the moment of truth for this election cycle……. qualifying. All candidates for elected office must file their ”Declaration of Candidacy and Affidavit” then plunk down some money to run. In the sheriff’s race alone that is thousand of dollars.   As I make my daily travels through the County talking and listening to voters I can’t help but take notice of the ever growing “yard sign battle” taking shape. I must admit if the election was based on how many signs can be put up o

Store back open!

Nope, we're not in the new house yet, nor our studio.... BUT I do have the store back open.   I've got a few more pics to get uploaded and descriptions added, but it is "open".     I'm sure inventory will fluctuate some as we're working on a "skeleton studio" versus our mondo one when it's built. Just have patience... the new studio IS coming.... and we promise to be bigger, and better than ever!     Thanks again for everyone's continued support back in Paulding County. Miss

Platform

My campaign for Post III in the County Commissioner’s election is picking up momentum. Many questions are being asked about my platform in this very important special election. Motivated by progressive and enlightened self-government, I am taking this opportunity to share some specific ideas that we share as concerned citizens.   Issues or Opportunities?   Clearly, we have many opportunities together in moving Paulding County to the next level. The focus needs to be on opportunities and not

Meet and Greet

Interesting the mixed reactions I have received since my announcement. It is nice to have people smile, shake my hand and ask "how can I help". It is also interesting to see and hear comments about me which are uninformed and just plain incorrect. Looks like there will be at least four people running for the Post which might mean a runoff in August. I am speaking at the Republician Party meeting on Saturday April 12 at Family Savings Credit Union, 342 Charles Hardy Pkwy, in Hiram at 9 am

Feeling meditative this morning...

Are people really that complicated, or do we just like to pretend we are? I mean, how much of the crap that goes on in our lives do we do to ourselves? Is being complicated considered a "good" thing? I think if you ask 10 people what they really wanted out of life, the majority (if not all) of them would say something leading back to "simplification," being it a less stressful job, less hectic lifestyle, less drama-filled relationships. It’s kind of sad and funny when you think about it.

Some Days are Better Spent in Front of the TV

And this has been a whole week of 'em.   Really, I'm just tired.   Last weekend we buried my wife's grandmother, one of the sweetest ladies I've ever had the chance to know. Then I got the court summons to testify in a child abuse case (I hope those kids get out of that Hades they've had to put up with.) Left for NY on Wednesday, only to miss my flight due to a full parking lot at the Atlanta airport & a 30 minute security wait.   I should have gotten some things finished while in NY b

Stabalizing...

I've not blogged in quite some time, but I feel as my one year "anniversary" approaches, it is time for an update. It was in March of last year that me and my now ex seperated. At the time, I was completely devestated. It's amazing to me the difference a year makes.   Over the past year I have really learned a great deal about myself. And, I realize (as I think most people do with time) that even the most "devestating" experiences happen for good reason. I know now that while my time wi

Days 1 & 2

Yesterday my boyfriend and I started using Chantix to stop smoking. I have been hearing great things about it and our physician, who is normally very skeptical, agreed that Chanitx was a great drug and was more than happy to write us the prescriptions. Last night my boyfriend recommended that we blog about our experience.   So here goes:   Saturday 1/5/08 Day 1: I took the pill in the morning as instructed and didn't give it a second thought. I have no idea if it was the psychological effec

We've made the move!

I thought I'd take a minute and post that our move is complete! Well, at least we've moved to Waycross, and settled in somewhat. It's a start. The next phase will be the building of our new home, and my new soap studio!   Hopefully by the end of summer, we'll have our new "Green-Home" [earth friendly, passive solar, energy efficient] completed, along with IGF's new "green" studio. I can't tell you how excited I am about this and getting my business back up and running down here. I've alre

It can now be told!   For the past several months, Bill has been planning a new "publicity stunt" to call attention to the Ride for Wet Noses next April, and on Tuesday November the 20th, we pulled it off successfully: A climb up the Paulding Humane Society Billboard and pictures made up there with Bill and His Trek 1000 bike!   The perpetrators of the "crime"   Bill Craig: avid cyclist, animal welfare advocate and local nutcase   Michelle McKee: Photographer and Bill's web-designer

Back to Soaping!

Well, it's been over a month since I soaped anything. I think I was beginning to go through withdrawals!   Now that I've fully recovered from surgery, I thought today would be a perfect day to soap.   SOOOoo, today, in the soap pot we had:   ~ A test batch of my new "Save Face" soap, designed for people with skin that tends to be slightly oily, or has break-outs. This soap features cosmetic grade French Pink Clay, collodial oatmeal, honey, and the essential oils of Tea-Tree, Lavender

D2D is "Live"

Our ride to benefit PHS and shelters in a 5 state area between here and Dallas, TX is finally "officially" out in the open, news releases have been sent to county websites and print media and the website is getting steadily "hit" with inquiries. I am continuing my training for next April when I hope to get in at least 100 miles a day on my bicycle heading back this way from Texas for the animals and for "Spay Neuter and Adopt".
