Georgia’s Little Grand Canyon

Georgia’s Little Grand Canyon

Everyone knows of the giant hole in the middle of north Arizona: the Grand Canyon. Few people know of the Little Grand Canyon located in Georgia!

Civil War Re-Enactments

Civil War Re-Enactments

In the South we have this wonderful tendency to reproduce battles from the Civil War. We always show them as the event actually took place, but we strive to beat those Yankees each time.

Bugs and an Irish Girl

Bugs and an Irish Girl

This is a column I wrote earlier this year for the Times-Georgian. Aiobhin (oh-veen) spent four days in the south.

Having returned to America and re-entered Carrollton society caused some of the habits I used to have to change. Grocery shopping is one of those experiences. Prior to living in Ireland, I shopped at Kroger and threw all kinds of food items into the buggy. Three cereal boxes, frozen chicken, spices and sauces, fruits and [...]

Finding Room in my Room

Finding Room in my Room

I've been really quiet about life at home since I've been back in the States. I'm still trying to get a hang of life here and get into a kind of rhythm. Georgia's been great and my family have been troopers. The weather hasn't been too terribly hot and I've spent a lot of time [...]
