Ooooo....I love Pancake Day! We're actually having Pancake Week in Kindergarten this week. I have the kids run an obstacle course with pretend frying pans and bean bag pancakes. Today we listened to John Lithgow read Marsupial Sue's Runaway Pancake and Friday they get to follow a recipe and make pancakes for lunch. I'm throwing in Green Eggs and Ham in honor of Dr. Seuss on March 2. I know this has nothing to do with letterboxing, but I miss you guys and wanted to say hello. I did get a glimpse of Eidolon this weekend at the mall, but couldn't catch up to him. He and Chimega walk just as fast at the mall as they do on the trail!

BTW, I think you're all crazy for night boxing Friday night 'cause it was FREEZING!!! Truth be known, if I could've ditched the kids, I would've been there in a heartbeat! =) Glad you all had a good time and no one lost any important parts to FROST BITE.

Hey, Georgia doesn't get its own time zone that it can be an hour + more than Eastern time! It's still morning! The five continental time zones: Goofy, Eastern, Central, Mountain, Pacific.

I am hoping to attend the 6th annual southeast gathering in May. I would like to camp also and I know memorial weekend is a busy weekend for camping, so I was hoping to get a site soon. I have never been there before and was hoping for some tips for camping there. Is there a place I should avoid? Is there some place everyone usally camps? Do a lot of people camp there from the event? All help will be great!! Thanks

A *warning* if any of you have boxes or caches-Comet Trail

I know we have one, but I think somebody else has a couple of boxes along the Comet Trail?? I just wanted to put a warning out there that there have been now quite a few attacks on the trail and some people are not longer using it. Seems to be breeding ground for crappy people-which is a shame. I know we don't feel safe on it in many areas any longer. Just wanted to put out a warning for anybody who had boxes there---

Keep in mind that it IS now legal to carry a weapon in Georgia if you are properly licensed.

If these hoodlums get wind of people shooting back, they'll go away. One of your cronies ending up D.R.T. is a significant deterrent.

Please, if you have not already, put a warning in the clues of your box so people will know before they search for it.

Hot off the press.

Important to note that the Wild Horse Trail is practically in people's backyards, whereas much of the Silver Comet Trail is a bit removed, though not much.

Yes, but sadly, that's not the only attack. There have been several in Paulding Co in areas 'less seedy' and even on crowded parts. Just the other evening in Hiram-there was an attack on a woman again on the trail. We no longer feel comfy taking our kids out on the trail-which is sad.

Yes, sadly. That's the only one the AJC let me get to without signing in.

Again, I state what I said earlier, with amendments:

Keep in mind that it IS now legal to carry a firearm in Georgia if you are properly licensed. The purpose of carrying such a weapon is self-defense. Self defense against people like this.

If these hoodlums get wind of people packin' heat their survival instinct should kick in and they'll go somewhere else. One of your cronies ending up wounded, or better yet, D.R.T., is a significant deterrent.

(D.R.T. = Dead Right There)

I've hiked the Wild Horse Trail and parts of the Silver Comet. I've also hiked a parts of Rock Creek Trail in Washington, D.C. Oddly enough... I felt safer in D.C. than I do in many places around Atlanta.

There are cops all over that city, Rock Creek Park has police patrols on horseback and call boxes are everywhere.

Maybe Sonny oughta use some of the Godforsaken "stimulus" money and improve security on the Silver Comet: surveillance cameras, police on souped-up golf carts, lighting...

Turbo golf carts??...an interesting (and admittedly funny) mental picture. How about turbo segways?

Funny, yes, but true. Most of the golf carts you see driving around in Peachtree City are your standard electric models that top out at 14 mph. I can go faster than that on a bicycle. Some gas-powered models can go 20 mph.

But there are a few out there that are ridiculously fast -- for a golf cart.

Hmm... So the other day...
I went to go try out this country restaurant I've never been to before. I got a veggie plate... well cause... I LOVE my veggies. I got some turnip greens, mac n' cheese, and a squash/zucchini soufflé. I knew bacon was going to be in it so when I got the plate I just started diggin' it out unto another plate. Then. Into my mouth the turnip greens went. Yummy :)

A minute later...
ATLfunk was looking at the bacon.

Another minute later...
ATLfunk thinking: Hmm. That piece of bacon (among the other pieces of bacon) looks like an insect. He takes a second look.
ATLfunk says: Did you know there was a cricket in your turnip greens?
me: O . O
me: o_O
me: WHAT!?
me: Where? Let me see.
ATLfunk grabs the cricket with a napkin.
me: WAIT! WAIT! No. I don't want to see it!!!!!!
I was completely grossed out. I completely lost my apetitite. And for some reason. I was embarrassed that I didn't notice in the first place and was stuffing my face with turnip greens.

I thought: I think I'll go throw up now. I'm not Andrew Zimmer.
