  1. Jennifer's Pet Rescue. They go to the Hiram PetsMart on weekends. All are fostered so you can get their temperament and personality from their fosters. It's $200 whch reimburses them for the cost of getting the animal spayed/neutered and getting their shots up to date. They also accept donations. We got our rescue from them and he's the best, most affectionate, playful dog I've had.
  2. I didn't feel this one and neither did my dogs. I guess it's a myth that animals act crazy before events like that LOL. I did feel the 2001 one in Alabama. My then-husband sat straight up and said "that's an earthquake" and I told him he was confused. He grew up in L. A and knows what they feel like. Hope we don't have a bigger one out here.
  3. It's a fast-paced game. Two 45-minute halves with a 10-15 minute halftime, no timeouts, no changing offense/defense, just going nonstop. If there's an injury or a flop, the ref adds that time delay to the end of the game, so at 90' it'll be +2 or however many minutes the game was delayed while someone rolled around on the ground. It's great when your kids play it. You know when the clock runs out the game's done regardless win, lose, or tie. No overtime, no extra innings, just *clock* *whistle* *done*.
  4. We drove by there a couple of weeks ago and it looked completely empty inside. We were at the Rockmart location over the summer and asked our server there and she said it was pushed back from October to November, but that's not right either. I'm hoping that word-of-mouth will be enough for the Hiram location because it's tucked in behind businesses so you can't see it from 278. It looks like it's got a big enough space so we'll see how it goes!
  5. Congrats UTD! So excited for the team and for the city. Hopefully this is the first of many championships for the Five Stripes and it trickles over into our other sports. My oldest son's friend has played soccer since he was 3 and my son started playing in the past few years which got his younger brother interested too. We've started watching soccer the past couple of years and even went to an Atlanta United game this year. It's a nonstop sport but there's a lot about it I still don't know. And yes, he's mastered the art of the flop. LOL.
  6. Jennifer's Pet Rescue. Love yhem.
  7. It is VERY annoying when every single thread turns into a political thing and then a personal attack, and it's the same two people attacking each other endlessly. It could be a thread about Thanksgiving dinner and it becomes an all-out war. Just grow up. I have two bickering kids at home, don't need to be bombarded with two bickering kids on here.
  8. Will you two stop (and you know who you are)? Anyway, I just hope the results get finalized so we can stop being bombarded with commercials, robo calls, and annoying text message. The Facebook posts won't stop (I have a friend STILL complaining about the 2016 election) but at least TV would be better. One can only hope!
  9. Yes. Prayers and hugs for them all. This world is so full of hate and evil but I believe there is more good out there. We need to band together and show people that good CAN win. I'd also send this rain we've had all week to Paradise, CA, to douse that wildfire. So scary.
  10. What sport? Rountree Recreation in Hiram has a covered space. There's an indoor soccer field, indoor batting cages, and I think another inddoor court there. There's also indoor batting cages in Dallas that has a full basketball court in the building. Good luck and thanks for coaching. It's hard finding someone to do that!
  11. Yes! I saw the first Nightmare On Elm Street when I was 10 (my best friend snuck the VHS in the rental store as her dad was checking out another movie) and I didn't sleep for a month. It's been 30 years and I STILL can't look at him. I like spooky, suspenseful movies, not so much blood and gore. I'm a nurse and I deal with blood and gross bodily fluids every day, that doesn't bother me, but I don't want to see it on the big screen. I do like The Sixth Sense and Silence Of The Lambs. There's a movie from the early 80s called Watcher In The Woods, starring Bette Davis, and it's very go
  12. I have a friend who uses dryer lint sprayed with WD-40 to start fires in her outdoor fire pit. My hack is for babies, though. Clean and dry a baby wipes tub and use that to store baby socks in their drawer so those tiny little socks don't roll around loose. I also use a zippered lingerie bag to wash baby socks so they don't get lost in the wash.

    So, what's everybody going to be? My youngest has gone from a phantom ghoul to Ninja Turtle to Darth Vader, just this week, so who knows what he'll have decided by then. LOL. Also, what was your favorite costume that you wore as a kid, or a memorable one you've seen other kids wear? And we're all trick-or-treating on October 31, right?
  14. I have a cousin near Fort Walton who's military and he can't leave, I have a niece east of Destin who's a hotel maanger and she can't leave. It's looking bad now that it's a category 4. Prayers for them and all those in the path, in Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina! My husband is in Greenville, SC, and is heading home Thursday just as it's heading his way.
  15. You know what rednecks consider a good Friday night? A 12-pack of Bud and a bug zapper. LOL. Anyway, i know somebody who got their dad a talking bug zapper. It's a regular outdoor bug zapper but there's a battery-powered sensor on it, so when a bug gets on the grid it says "ouch ouch ouch!" Or "Go into the light" or a cartoon electrocution sound. It's kinda funny. I'd get an indoor bug zapper except I'm afraid my dogs would either feast on the fallen corpses or get ahold of if somehow and zap their poor little tongues.
  16. I saw something on Facebook yesterday, someone posted that they miss 9/12. We were so strong, so compassionate, so united in those days after 9/11. And someone on here posted about a generation not knowing life before 9/11. My oldest son is one of those. He'll be 17 next month, so he's never known the America I grew up with, and that broke my heart so much when everything was happening.
  17. Back to the topic at hand, I was 8 months pregnant with my oldest son. I felt so guilty about bringing a child into this crazy world, knowing he'd never know the same childhood I'd had growing up. Even now I get choked up thinking about that horrible day, the fear, the heartbreak for those directly impacted. What I try to do instead is think of how this country came together on September 12, 2001, and how strong we were. We need to get back to that unity, that "love your neighbor, help your fellow man" mindset that we all had in the days after. There's a line from my favorite song that is so
  18. I think it was Alabama for one of their Christmas concerts in Fort Payne, AL, when I was a kid. The first big one was New Kids On The Block in August 1990 at Bobby Dodd Stadium.
  19. The question is why is the driver being punished for something his dad said before he was even born? His dad, being from another country where that word has a different meaning, and never said it again? Let me scan my memory banks to make sure I never uttered that word, and it IS a horrible word, otherwise my kids might be punished in 20 years when they're adults.
  20. I have a Facebook friend who works for Wal-Mart and their Christmas decorations are already out. School supplies aisle one, Christmas aisle 2. It's bad enough celebrating HallowThanksMas, let's not add SchoolHallowThanksMas to it. It's not too early for fall decorating. Halloween, I'd wait until at least October 1. Spider webs on your front door in August don't say spooky holiday, they say you need to clean your porch and call Northwest Exterminating. LOL.
  21. We do cook a lot, and are quite good at it if I do say so myself. On the weekends, or those crazy days at work when neither one of us have any oomph to cook, it's nice to let someone else do the cooking and the dishes. LOL. BB's Sports Bar on Ridge Rd isn't too bad, either. I definitely want to try Gyro City but my husband isn't too much of a Greek fan. One of my coworkers is Greek and his wife is an amazing cook, so I've been spoiled by authentic Greek food and haven't ventured into a Greek restaurant just because of how good her food is, but I still want to try it. If I understood cor
  22. Okay, I'm getting tired of big chain restaurants, mainly because the food quality has gone downhill the past several years. What's your favorite place to eat that's a locally owned place? I do like Merle's, so what else is out there?
  23. I like telling this to make other people feel old. My mom was pregnant with me when Elvis died, so I always know how long he's been gone. Age is creeping up on me, now that y'all know about how old I am. It makes me feel old when a patient signs their own consent forms and they were born the year I graduated high school, and then I realize those kids are over legal drinking age too! LOL.
  24. Can we not go there AGAIN? It's a just-for-fun post, no politics. Sheesh.
