Atlanta is well known as the "birthplace" for the book called Gone with the Wind.  If the author, Margaret Mitchell, had her way, it would never have been published.

This made me think about what landmark or location … (0 comments)

Fireworks safety tips for all ages
I love fireworks!  Ever since I was a little girl, I looked forward to the 4th of July for the big event that highlighted the skys; FIREWORKS!
