    From the GA Dept of Health:

    The number of Hospital rooms used keeps climbing.   Lots of bad cases.  Still hopeful we can use distancing to keep this under the line.

  2. If I get a winter cold, the cough and post-nasal drip will usually last for 4+ weeks after I finally fight off the cold.  If I get a lung infection, it can be 6-8 weeks before I finally it get all cleared out.  With this wet winter/spring so far, expect allergies to be bad as well.  

    I just stay on the Over the Counter drugs to try to get a good nights sleep as I feel that is critical for healing.

    Also, not sure how old  your son is, but some guys at work got me to take large amounts of Vitamin C when I was getting sick on a trip.  I was skeptical,  but it was the shortest cold I'd ever had and recovery was faster too.  I take the nature made 500 mg chewables.   That might help some if he's older. (I wouldn't try it on anyone less that 18 without discussing with his doctor first.) 


  3. Funny you should mention that since the construction news on the RCR website hasn't been updated since 1st Quarter of Last year, the original completion date.  They have a few pictures from Sept, when the dam was supposed to start filling (6 months late, but I will say I expected that with all the rain we've had for the last 2 years)

    However, rumor that I've heard is that it's still empty, as the county screwed up the dam construction and can't get the Corps to approve starting the filling process.  Thus, no news. 

    Since I've seen no logging trucks coming out, I tend to believe the rumor as they are supposed to be logging the area as it fills to keep dirt washout to a minimum. 


    So until they can fix it, we get to pay for the dam construction *and* pay Cobb to process our water!!    Lucky us!





  4. The Locus swarms in Africa/ middle east and now China are not getting a lot of press here, but there is a possibility of severe famine in those areas as the swarms can eat a field clean of crops in just hours.  Insecticides and direct killing of the beasts are the primary attack mode in most countries.  

    They have moved into extreme western China now, but the Chinese govt is using a green solution to fight back.  

    Ducks.  Lots and lots of Ducks.   

    I hope that this method works for China, but the middle east and Africa could be in for massive starvation if the weather forecast holds and the swarms continue to get bigger. 



    The plague of locusts which has wreaked havoc across east Africa has now reached China’s Xinjiang border in the far west of the country, where it meets Pakistan and India.  

    Pakistan declared a national emergency due to potential food shortages, with Prime Minister Imran Khan calling it "the worst locust attack in decades".

    In an impressive video, shared by the state-run Chinese news site CGTN, thousands of ducks are seen marching down a road to face and then eat the enemy.

    These ducks are on a mission to seek, destroy, and eat locusts

    The brown birds, referred to as “duck troops” in Chinese media, have been used to tackle locusts before and some say they are more effective than pesticides.

    Wang, from Xinjiang, previously told Global Times that one juvenile duck can manage 4m² of land by gorging on locusts.

    In this latest outbreak, said to be the worst in 25 years, swarms of locusts have reached a terrifying 60km long in Kenya according to officials.


  5. 4 hours ago, glassdogs said:

    I rarely ever disagree with you, but this is one time.   Commercial vehicles parked in residential areas basically tend to deflate property values.   Or, put a lid on resale activity/vibrance.   

    JMHO - 

    Let's face it, someone can find something that is "lowering property values" pretty much anywhere if they want to.  Ask anyone who lives in an HOA community with zillions of "rules" which they will quickly claim are "to protect our property values!"   Ever leave your garage door open for more than 2 minutes?  You are lowering property values.   Have a non-standard rabbit statue under your hedge?  Nope, remove it! You are impacting Property values!!    Next they want all the boats and campers removed from the property because they are impacting property values.   Then your car can't be over 5 years old, then your kids can't leave their bikes in the front yard for lunch without getting a notice.  Bah.  

    Unless you are in the process of trying to sell, the only thing higher property values get you is the ability to give more money to Paulding County Govt in property taxes to spend however they want. 

    We've had a neighbor parking his boom truck in his driveway for over a year across the street.  Since houses are selling as fast as they are put on the market, I don't see it impacting much of anything....

    As long as the vehicle is in good condition, I just don't see the point.   If it's a non-running wreck parked in the front yard grass, then you have a case.

  6. So... if the aid was outside of the campaign and the President himself didn't know about it, how exactly is he supposed to refuse this aid? 


    Should #EXPRESIDENToftheUnitedStates have been impeached for providing funds to help oust Netanyahu even if the state department didn't know that was what was happening?

  7. Kombucha (also tea mushroom, tea fungus, or Manchurian mushroom when referring to the culture; botanical name Medusomyces gisevii) is a fermented, slightly alcoholic, lightly effervescent, sweetened black or green tea drink commonly consumed for its supposed health benefits.

  8. Lost a 12" pine in the back.  Had no idea it was half rotten at the base, the bark had covered the damage.  Only damage was it landed on three of my tomato cages.   They will never be the same.  :( 

    Neighbor down the street lost one about the same size, hit the power lines and broke them.   Greystone was able to fix it about 3:00 am. 

    A huge thanks to the crews working all night long.  Most of us are very used to our electrical conveniences!
