Winter Wonderland

Brasstown Bald Snow

Brasstown Bald Snow

My wife and I spent the weekend with family in the North Georgia mountains this past weekend and much to our surprise we got to see some snow!  Temperatures dropped below freezing Saturday night and when we woke up Sunday the mountains were snow capped. 

It was absolutely beautiful so we decided to drive to the top of Brasstown Bald to check it out.  Brasstown Bald is the highest point in Georgia and when we got to the top the trees were covered in snow.  I was surprised to see snow in November.  We usually don’t see it until February if we see it at all. 

I love that we get to experience all four seasons in Georgia.  It was definitely a winter wonderland that put me in the holiday spirit!

The Biltmore

The Biltmore

The Biltmore

I did it! I finally did it!  I traveled to Asheville, North Carolina with my family this month to see America’s largest home.  It’s something I’ve always wanted to do and I must say the Biltmore is larger than life.  I took this artistic photograph to illustrate what I’m talking about. 

There are more than 250 rooms and 40 bathrooms inside the 175,000 square foot mansion.  If you’ve been there then you know what I’m talking about.  Otherwise, I would highly recommend you take the three hour drive to Asheville for a long weekend.  It’s a really neat city nestled in the North Carolina mountains. 

We took the holiday candlelight tour of the Biltmore, but there are several others you can enjoy also.  Plus, there are several great restaurants in Asheville!!  Send me a comment and let me know what you think aboutI’d love to hear your stories about the Biltmore if you’ve

Historic Election

Clark Atlanta student reacts to historic election

Clark Atlanta student reacts to historic election

I know this blog entry is long overdue, but I think it’s worth the wait.  I had the pleasure of witnessing history from a special place on election night.  I was assigned to report live at the student center on the campus of Clark Atlanta University.  There were more than a thousands students on hand when we arrived that evening.

Shortly before our 11 pm newscast the race was called in favor of Barack Obama.  At that very moment, the student center erupted with cheers, chants, and cries.  It was like nothing I had ever seen before.  I immediately called our newsroom and asked the producers to take us live.  No matter who you voted for it was a historic moment that became great television.  Most of the students were first time voters and for them it was a life changing experience!  I took several pictures with my camera phone that night including the one in this blog.

I will always remember election night and I’m sure the students at Clark Atlanta University will too!

My Little Devil

My English Bulldog Cleo dressed up as a Devil on Halloween!

My English Bulldog Cleo dressed up as a Devil on Halloween!

If you’re a pet lover like me then you’ll understand this blog entry.  Otherwise, you’ll probably think it’s a bit silly.  Anyway, my English Bulldog Cleo is a big part of our family so we decided to dress her up in a devil costume for Halloween this year! 

She’s actually a very sweet little devil!  We rescued her four years ago from the Georgia Heartland Humane Society and she’s been such a wonderful addition to our family.  My wife and I both attended the University of Georgia so I guess you could say we’re biased. 

Halloween is one of our favorite holidays and it’s even better when you can enjoy it with your pets!  Our Bulldog will tolerate just about anything including a devil costume once a year.
