A Sunday evening in Georgia

While Caren and I were in the North Georgia mountains this weekend, about 100 miles north and several hundred feet above home, the city once known as Terminus has bloomed and spring has finally appeared in strength. The blazing whites, reds and pinks of the flowers are here and astounding. Tomorrow I will provide pictures.

Even that short distance was enough to make the change evident, as the mountains remain a good week or so behind in their flowering.

I will also perhaps provide some pictures of some of the Battle of Atlanta sites. The July 1864 engagement too place right in my neighborhood.

Spring is here. Time to explore.

For my money

“For my money …” may be a cliché but it’s an under-used concept. It signals that this is how you would order or rate a subjective judgement. “If it were my choice …” is roughly the same.

Next time you are on Facebook or any social media, take a look at how many declarations and subsequent arguments are purely subjective. “I like cats.” “Rubbish. Cats suck. Dogs are awesome.”

And then wonder how many people are just wasting their time with such discussuons. For my money, they aren’t worth it.
