Just A Few Observations

I read the other day that brain cells last as long as you do. You are born with a hundred billion or so at birth, and that is all that you are ever going to have. It has been estimated that you lose about 500 of them an hour; so if you have any serious thinking to do there really … Read More

Before talking about Rebel, let me say that with God’s Grace and Mercy plus the excellent doctors at Augusta University Hospital, Martha is home and doing fine. I guess that she is like … Read More

Because of that, I feel free to write a short blog that will not include any of my Summer Scene thoughts. Most of my … Read More

I regret to admit that not a single thing that I say in this blog will originate from … Read More

Cleanup Progress

We have made amazing progress in our cleanup efforts of our hunting courses since hunting season ended. We now have 11 hunting courses that look pristine. I would like to give a big shout out of thanks to Yancey Brothers Caterpillar for helping us secure some much needed logging equipment like skidders. We already own enough heavy equipment to have … Read More
