Imagine boarding a high-speed train in Macon and 45 minutes later arriving in downtown Atlanta. Spend the short trip working on your laptop or resting comfortably, as your train zips past frustrated drivers fighting traffic on I-75. With travel time of less than 1-hour, the train would be an opportunity for local residents to take advantage of all the shopping, sporting events and entertainment, Atlanta has to offer. More importantly, high-speed rail would make it convenient for Middle Georgians to commute to Atlanta for employment, possibly turning Macon into Atlanta's newest suburb. Last Friday, Examiner.com interviewed Mike Ford, CEO of New Town Macon and a board member of Georgians for Passenger Rail, on the proposed train route connecting Macon to Atlanta.  Mr. Ford has worked for ...

Yesterday, I drove a client to Macon Georgia to record a survey of a property that I had just listed at the Bibb County Clerk of Superior Court. It's about a two hour drive from the office, so it gave me a good chance brainstorm with the client as we drove the Georgia backroads. When we got to the courthouse, I had my camera in hand (as usual) and my computer case so rather than go through security, I decided to wait outside while my client recorded the survey. It was a pretty day so I thought that I could get some good photos for my blog. The courthouse was being renovated, and was completely enveloped with scaffolding. It created unique geometric patterns that I like, so I decided to try a few shots. As I reaise the camera to my eye, I heard someone say: "Stop, who do you work for?" I...

I don't like to go to the dentist.  Okay, that's a serious understatement.  I HATE going to the dentist.  But in recent years with my parents "good teeth" started to break and loose fillings I have decided that it is necessary even if I hate it. I had some dentral trauma as a child and I had a horrible root canal as an adult.  After I got my crown I waited 15 years before going back to a dentist and I really didn't like the dentist I did go to see after that. But in the past few years my husband has needed some major dental work including some oral surgery and he likes his dentist, so recently I gave them a try and I have to admit it was the best experience I've ever had in a dental chair.  I went to The Dental Care Center in Macon Georgia on Mercer University Drive.  I readily admit I'...

If you do not want to go to Washington DC one of the biggest Cherry blossom festivals in the US is just kicking off in Macon Georgia. The city is Ante-Bellum and just a real gem from the beauty of the Cherry Blossom Festival to the architecture of the homes. It is also amazing what 200 feet in altitude and 130 miles south will do to making spring come early to an area. We were there visiting friends this week. If you are in the area next weekend will probably be good for the beautiful tress as well. Enjoy

There is an annual festival about 45 minutes from my home, yet I hadn't attended in years. While it wasn't the same as the last time I went, like so many other things in this world it has become so much more commercialized than I would prefer.... it is still a worthy place to visit and if you can come durning the Festival the 3rd weekend each September all the better. There were lots of beautiful things on display made by native Americans... some from all over the country. My husband and I saw a lot of beautiful handcrafted pieces and bought his mom a really cool painting on a feather and framed nicely. The artist was from Cherokee. She signed and named the painting. But other than the actual festival it's still a lovely place to visit. It's very moving to me to see the detail in the l...
