    We are stuck with Tom Price, so not much change from the "gentlemen" in Florida's legislature.

    Housing market collapsed here after several years of insane growth.  There's still a lot of forest including a lot of protected land around Lake Allatoona.  We live very close to the lake and have wild honeybees living somewhere nearby.  We've made a point to plant as many plants to attract them (and hummingbirds and butterflies) as we can.  There are sourwood trees in the woods just across the street too, but the bees aren't sharing their treasure.

    •  Cool, we do the same here. I used to have bees but (0+ / 0-)

      the city made a big stink about them being in the city limits.
      Seriously thinking of moving that way since Canada is too cold. Love that area, Cherokee and Pickens counties. This area was hit hard by NASA's retirement of the shuttle, I do okay doing what I do but just hate this state and the horrendous people I am surrounded by- time to move on I believe.
        Thanks for the comment and info, appreciate that!

      Be the kind of person your dog thinks you are.
