Please Indulge Me a Personal Moment: “Thank you” doesn’t begin to express my gratitude for the outpouring of sympathy, prayers, love and support at my father’s sudden passing. He was fine southern gentleman and patriot who approved of discourse in any form (even PeachPundit’s) that furthered our noble nation. You would have liked him.

- I wonder if he wore his Mr. Rogers sweater for his fireside chat.
- Hershel will soon be on the telly again.
- New ethics laws (yawn) among others took effect January 1.
- Again, the movers and shakers at PP are left off this list.
- Clayton County treading water on local legislation.
- Douglasville council members have stars in their eyes.
- Prayers for the David Martin family.

- Peytonphiles are finally happy.
- The IRS Scandal is a like a bad rash, it just won’t go away.
- NASA isn’t happy. Nope. Not happy at all.
- Ace of Spades celebrates the big 1-0. (Bonus Twitchy) Pudding!

Random Everywhere:
- Yet another apocalyptic warning, this time with a horn.
- Finally.
- You just think it’s your money.
- You’ve waited all year for it – 2013 List of Words to be Banished from the Queen’s English for Misuse, Overuse and General Uselessness.

Kill “negatively impact.” Now there’s a phrase that degrades, harms, drives down, decreases, downgrades, worsens, and diminishes the language.

So how come the media did not wear us out on the purpose of the expedition the ice bound ship was on ? To study, record and bring attention to the effects of global warming. :)

Well, this one random isolated event certainly disproves an entire theory!

Thank you – I won a bet…..

LOL! Good catch, Salty. Wonder why they left that part out? ‘Cause it’s always been a money-grabbing fraud, that’s why. Right after the fall of the Soviets it was stated right then and there that the “environmental” movement was the new home of communists and socialists. They’ve been angling to get into your pockets ever since.

Sorry for your father’s passing, Obi. Hope your family is doing as well as they can and you’re taking strength from all of your good memories.

Good banking news in Oconee County as the FDIC has lifted its cease-and-desist order from a local bank.

Remind me in August of how much I hate the cold.

Also, since there was a post yesterday about the future of the Pony, I thought I’d share the Creative Loafing story on the plans for the Clermont Hotel (and its celebrated Lounge).

When a lot of those on Georgia Trends list are forgotten we will still appreciate the architects and those of vision that gave us great buildings and landscapes. Some not so much.

Condolences on your loss, Sis. You and your family will be in my thoughts.
