Snow Removal – NC

Animated_Christmas_HouseSusBrrr !

With the recent inclement weather (very low temperatures, snow, ice, etc.) that has affected most of the United States, the emphasis has been on Metropolitan Atlanta. Although they had only several inches of snow, because of its geographical location (the South) they did not have a plan or equipment in place to handle the problem. Due to that, many thousands of people became stranded in vehicles, schools, etc.

Chick-fil-et  and others supplied free food to the stranded and actually delivered it to motorists on the Interstates and other highways.

In the early 60’s I was in Atlanta in January for a week and, while there they experienced a one-inch snowfall. The city began shutting down at noon and, by 5 o’clock the streets were empty except for a few of us from “up North” who were seen walking in the snow and wondering why all the fuss over an inch of snow!

“The Sound of” – – – Carrie

 

Carrie - The Sound of Music

On December 5th NBC aired a live presentation of “The Sound of Music”, a 3-hour spectacular. This was a massive undertaking (reportedly costing 9 million dollars). Live TV productions of this magnitude ended many decades ago with the advent of modern recording equipment.

There have been programs with the tag “recorded live”, which is a paradox since a taped production can be edit for errors. But, with the full cast including 7 wonderful children memorizing their lines and song lyrics, the program was amazing. If there were errors they would have only been noticed by the cast members themselves.

Islamization of Florida?

A few days ago it was revealed that the School Board of Brevard County, FL (my former place of residence and where my teenage grandson is  a student) is “reviewing” a history textbook  that espouses the study,  at length, of the Islamic faith.

Those who have reviewed the book have discovered that it is a primer of how to be a Muslim, including all the horrific acts that have been perpetrated on women, Christians, Jews and those of all other faiths, in the name of their dead prophet, Mohammed.
