ga: Smyrna Ga. homes values and homes for sale - 06/04/10 04:43 AM
Smyrna Ga. Home Values are up! While I don't think that Zillow is incredibly accurate, I do think it is a reasonable indicator of what is going on the market over the long term. Below is a 10 year chart of Zillow home values for Smyrna, Ga. As you can see, if you bought your home as a long term investment, the recent value has declined but the long term value is still appreciated from the value 10 years ago!  As a matter of fact Smyrna home values have held up very well even compared to the rest of Cobb County. … (0 comments)

ga: Is this guy really this stupid? NOT an April fools joke - 04/01/10 02:02 AM
Unfortunatley this guy is a congressman from here in Ga. and this is not an April fools joke.
Watch clip and pay particular attention around 1:15 or so.
He actually asked if the island of Guam might tip over from over over population!
Excuse me Mr congressman, it is an island.  It is attached to the floor the ocean.  It is not some dirt and tree covered floating barge in the middle of the Pacific!

Kennesaw Ga.- Honest Car repair at Rapid Rotation!

Honest car repair shops are few and far between.  A few years ago I was having problems getting my car to pass Ga. emmissions.

Anytime you can get a Jag in and out of the shop for $100 there is something good going on.

ga: Square footage coming to Atlanta - Finally! - 01/13/10 05:56 AM
For as long as I can remember, listings here in Ga. have not included square footage.  I heard stories why this is the case, but the bottom line is that square footage does not appear on listings.  That is all changing tomorrow.
FMLS has announced that square footage will now populate form tax records with new listings.  We can also manually input the sq. footage but we must cite the source.  It is important to note that agents do not measure the property.  We will only be quoting the footage from other sources.
Nonetheless, i think this is a good … (2 comments)

Marietta, Ga Oh yea its cold!

Nori Nori Japanese Sushi and Seafood, Sandy Springs, Ga
We had the pleasure of joining some friends for dinner a Nori Nori in Sandy Springs. I had to admit that I was a little apprehensive.  I mean really, how good could sushi and seafood be from a buffet? I'll just cut to the chase and say it was fantastic! There was an unbelievable variety of sushi, seafood, a fireside grill, and desserts.  It was all delicious and freshly prepared.  Even if you don't like sushi, there are plenty of seafood and grilled selections that just about anybody can have a great … (2 comments)

After the floods...   12-28-2009 I drove past Legion Park in Austell, Ga. today.  It was a poignant reminder of the incredible amount of damage done by the September floods in our area. As you can see the park is closed and there was significant damage to the park and ball fields.

ga: Powder Springs bans public smoking - sometimes - 12/14/09 01:31 AM
Powder Springs, Ga.

I get daily updates from Google Alerts anytime Powder Springs is in the news. At last weeks city council meeting the council banned smoking on the town square at public events.
Powder Springs limits smoking in town square Full story: The Atlanta Journal-Constitution The Powder Springs City Council voted Monday to ban smoking in the town square during city-sponsored events.


This raises several questions for me. First of all though let me say that I am a non smoker and I think cigarettes are disgusting.  

However last time I checked smoking … (4 comments)

See the Space Shuttle and the International Space Station from earth. This is one of my favorite things to do.  If you know when and where to look, you can stand in your yard and watch the shuttle and space station fly over.  There is no special equipment needed. You can't use a telescope because it flies over to quickly but you maybe could use binoculars if you really want to.  The shuttle program is ending in 2010 so there are not a lot chances left.

ga: My congressman had a town hall last weekend - 08/10/09 02:57 AM
I live in the 13th district of Ga. and my congressman, David Scott, held a town hall meeting this weekend. The stated purpose of the meeting was to discuss a local highway project but the meeting was opened up for questions on all matters at the end.
If I would have known about the town hall, I would have tried to be there. From what I saw on the video, it did not look to me like the Dr. asking the question was in any way rude. As a matter of fact he seemed down right calm and polite especially when … (15 comments)
