What would you think about a tax that substantially improves our transportation but is mostly funded by citizens from other counties?

One of the best things about living here in Coweta County is the commitment of our citizens to the steady improvement of our community.  It is rare to find a community where citizens so consistently support local charities, new and exciting cultural and social activities, and developmental initiatives that are proposed by their government leaders.  Coweta County residents have shown that the continuous improvement of the environment in which we live; is just part of our nature.  Continue reading “A Tax That Makes a Whole Lot of Sense!”

Friendship

Me, Andy and Carissa Storey

Last weekend I traveled to Ashtead, England to celebrate Andy Storey’s 60th birthday.  One might fairly ask why someone living in Newnan, Georgia would venture to England for a birthday party.  The answer is quite simple: Friendship.

I first encountered Andy on a conference call in the mid 1980’s when he was working for British Caledonian Airlines and I was a revenue management consultant.  We later began working together closely in the early 1990s when Andy migrated to Australia to work for Qantas and I was still consulting.  During that time I also met Carissa Rae who was a new Analyst for Qantas.  In fact I was her instructor when she came to work in the revenue management department.

Morality – A Complex Matter

Moral

I have been asked to conduct a two part session on Christian, specifically Catholic Christian morality.  Many people feel that the Catholic Church has an extensive set of rules – the do this and don’t do that list – that governs morality.  That is not the case.  I will post an audio of the two sessions once they are finished.  Below is an overview of what will be covered in the class: Continue reading “Morality – A Complex Matter”

Our Planet

PlanetWith the vast number of television outlets to watch and the huge number of shows and specials available, the average person (me) can find it difficult to find a truly remarkable series, but I managed to find one!  The Netflix series, Our Planet is well worth checking out.  The eight part series premiered in early April.  If you care about nature or just this blue marble we call Earth, this will be a treat for you.

Here is the Netflix promo language:  “Sir David Attenborough narrates this eight-part series that explores the unique wonders of the natural world. Produced in partnership with the World Wildlife Fund, “Out Planet” uses a combination of stunning photography and technology to present Earth’s remaining wilderness areas and their animal inhabitants. The project took four years to complete, with more than 600 crew members filming in 50 countries across the world to showcase the diversity that exists among habitats, from the remote Arctic wilderness to the jungles of South America.”

Have a look, you will be glad that you did and you will come away smarter.
