The old is new again, if you haven't watched it - Zach Porter

I had reluctantly seen the movie at the persistence of my friend Scot some years ago. I was dreading the viewing, wondering how a mumbling man with a bulbous nose - I can still remember imaging how red his nose would have looked in color - could actually be my cup of tea. Needless to say that I loved the film and it paved the way to old Hollywood for me.

Shame and the first time around the block - Michael Davis

I am ashamed. Thoroughly ashamed.

Of weddings and web pages - Rob Felt

It had been at least an hour of sitting in front of the glowing screen hunched over, before I fully realized the trouble I may be in. Fingers curled over the keyboard and moving a hundred miles an hour, I'm trying to save my presence in cyberspace and the security of my wedding at the same time.

Pets of the Week

Nadia is a 2-year-old, female Dachshund. She has been spayed and all vaccinations are current. For no reason at all, Nadia's former family gave her up because they no longer wanted a dog. Nadia is friendly and affectionate, and gets along well with other dogs and cats. She appears to be housebroken. Due to her very small size, Nadia will not be adopted into a home with very young children. For more information, please call Clayton County Humane Society at (770) 471-9436. Visit to see other animals available for adoption.
