Sad news about the passing of Monkees star Davy Jones. He was at our Wedding Reception at the Georgia Dome in 1996. Nice guy. Refused to give me any wedding advice. Probably a good thing. Nice blog from AJC's Rodney Ho remembering Davy Jones.

I do NOT need to play the lottery! I have Janet as a wife. I am the BIG winner!! Tonight's fare: Chicken with Rosemary, pancetta, red peppers and other secret ingredients ... plus, pole beans ... orzo pasta ... and sesame knots. I think I smell something cooking for dessert too!

Whitney Houston has been gone for almost two weeks now. I am sad she passed in such a tragic way. She was an incredible talent. However, the media coverage of her death and life has been non-stop. Our society’s fascination with “celebrity” is simply amazing. (I should know. I was once part of that media.) Today I made a stop to remember some people who did not get even close to the media coverage when they passed away. No special “look back” at their lives … no two-hour live coverage of their funeral … no individual tributes during award shows. Perhaps these people did not want any special recognition. Perhaps they were just proud to do a job that allows us to spend our time idolizing celebrities. Perhaps I will stop by and see these amazing people more often. (Marietta National Cemetery)

This "toy" was carved and painted by my Great Grandpa in 1942. I call it "Angry Marbles". You can shake it all you want and those three marbles will just roll back and forth ... never escaping. You can see the marbles from all four sides. How he got them in there? No idea.
