  1. MOPS stands for Mother's of Preschoolers. MOPS is a group of local mothers who meet monthly to share and support each other in the joys and challenges of motherhood. We provide encouraging relationships, practical help, and emotional support during what can be an isolating and challenging time of motherhood. Our local group includes more than 70 moms from both Cobb and Paulding Counties, diverse in ages, incomes, races, religious beliefs, and lifestyles. Membership is open to all mothers of children ages newborn through kindergarten as well as expectant mothers.


    We have two regular meetings per month which typically include a guest speaker, crafts, games, food, and fellowship. We are also actively involved in serving our community. Just this year we have partnered with Operation Christmas Child (donating more than 50 boxes which were delivered to children all over the world) and CAYA Ministries of Paulding County (donating more than 300 items of food to their food pantry). Some members meet separately for play dates, social events, or with our book club.

    We are a chapter of MOPS international, a not-for-profit organization.

  3. I made a good recipe last night with bone in chicken. I quartered potatoes and put them in with the chicken. I then added 1/2 cup of Italian seasoning and then a packet of the dry Italian dressing seasoning. It was really good!


    I also make a BBQ chicken with a bottle of BBQ sauce and then a cup of Italian dressing.

  4. Considering scheduling a winter break trip to take the fam down to Disney World. We've never been and looking around a bit at the travel sites I'm kind of intimidated. We've got 5 of us...looking to spend around $3k for tickets, room, and food. Y'all have any suggestions? Is the meal plan worth it? Is it better to stay at a Disney resort than at an offsite condo?





    They are offering the dining plan for free on most nights from the end of September until December. If you need any help planning or a quote, feel free to contact me. It is a great deal right now!

  5. Just a question about the fairs mentioned in this thread or any fair in the area. The wife and I have not been to a fair in many many years. She is used to the fairs back home in MI, and I grew up going to the fairs in south GA. I haven't been to one in 15 years. We would love to go to one that has all the good food, we're talking heart attack level stuff. I'm looking for lots of games,rides,crafts, livestock ,agriculture and horticulture,shows etc. Will the two mentioned fit the bill?


    I haven't been to the one in Perry yet, but we want to go this year. You would be disappointed in the one in Marietta. It doesn't even have a Ferris wheel, and very few of the exhibits. I don't think they had any agriculture exhibits and the livestock consisted of a petting zoo.

  6. Hummmm


    He is out of work and at least trying to do something to earn a buck and you all are slamming him for a possible scam? Dang at least he is trying and do any of you know it is a scam or do you just slam him because you don't know or just enjoy slamming someone?


    At least he is doing something to earn a buck vice sitting on his arse doing nothing and complaining about the job market.


    I know and knew people that would do just about anything to make a buck that is legal. >>>>>>>>>>>> Some just say it, others do it.


    I am not slamming him. I always feel bad for him. I would just like to know his story. I have never been on the side of the road where I could really read the sign. He is dressed nice but looks so sad. I see him out there around rush hour, on Saturdays, and after church on Sundays. I have always wondered if this is his second job. I would much rather see this than someone out there with their sick child in the heat.

  7. Wait a minute, that's not what his sign said last time.


    There is another thread about him some where around here.


    Do you know where the thread is? I have looked before, but didn't see anything. I agree that it is good that he is at least selling something and not out there with his hand out. I have never really got a good chance to read his sign. I was hoping someone on here might know more.

  8. For the past couple of months, I have noticed that there is a man who stands at various intersections selling cotton candy. I have only briefly been able to read his sign which says something about having a pregnant wife. Does anyone know his story? I saw him again today at the intersection of E. Paulding and 92. He used to always be at the intersection of Macland and 92.

  9. Can you tell me where on Mt Tabor? Thanks


    They are all around the playground. Once you pull into the parking lot and walk towards the playground, you will see a them on your left. There is also some on the little trail from the playground to the pond and then there is some near the bathrooms. I have never seen so many blackberries in my life! I am not sure if they are still there. I haven't been in weeks, but there was tons. Be careful though. Wear bug spray and protective clothing. My husband got chiggers from picking blackberries.

  10. I have to agree to disagree on that one. Yes, Chicken World is good, BUT!! Give me Zaxby's over them any day of the week.


    I am with you. Chicken World is good, but I prefer Zaxby's sweet tea with crushed ice, and their french fries. I am always so disappointed that Chicken World never has lemon. If you serve tea, lemon is a must IMO!
