Hey tourists-welcome to Atlanta!  If you’re coming in the summer, it’s going to be hot, but we’ll still be friendly.  One of the places that you’ll most certainly visit is the World of Coca-Cola.  Being a local this was one of the last attractions that I visited in the city.  However, the more I visit, the more I enjoy it and the Explorer app that they’ve release will help visitors regardless if it’s your first or fifth visit.

Our family vacations at Hilton Head Island some summers.  It’s a great place to relax, but one thing that has always been lacking is another place to eat and drink where you can see the water or go on the beach.  The Beach House near Coligny Plaza was that one place, it’s still is great and we’ll go there again.  However, the Sea Pines Beach Club has just reopened, having undergone an 18 million dollar renovation and contrary to some tourists on Hilton Head Island, it’s open to the public.

Atlanta Dads Group has Meetups all over Atlanta for dads

July 21, 2014

The Atlanta Dads Group is not just for stay at home dads nor is it only for ITP or OTP dads. They’ll have events inside and outside the perimeter-it’s cool to either leave or enter 285, really.
It all starts by simply joining the Atlanta Dads Group on Meetup. All of the messaging for group outings will come from that account. Once you join the Meetup group you can suggest places or things for the group to do. You can organize those outings yourself if know of a great happening in your area.

Planes: Fire and Rescue-better than the first one

July 21, 2014

The vocal cast in Fire and Rescue has more pep than the first movie. Julie Bowed, Ed Harris, Wes Studi, Curtis Armstrong and Stiller & Meara to mention a few are voices that really stand out in the film. It’s because the supporting vocal cast is so good that Dane Cook, the voice of Dusty Crophopper comes across as so flat. Set against the gravitas of Studi, Hal Holbrook and Brad Garrett, Dusty’s voice-and to an extent, his character were forgettable.

Legendary Star Lord #1: promising start to a cool character

July 20, 2014

Star Lord #1 is good because it gives you a feel for Peter Quill’s personality. The young boy who was taken from Earth, raised wandering the galaxy as a seemingly rudderless good guy with a great heart, but rough on the edges.
It has enough action to keep things fresh and firmly plants his key weapons and tricks that’ll be seen in the movie. That’s not a bad thing because his blaster is one of the coolest movie props that I’ve seen in a while.

Giving mini-comics this Halloween is simple and affordable

July 19, 2014

All of the titles are super kid friendly, but some might be more geared toward boys than girls.
Each pack that you order has 20 mini-comics and costs $4.99. At each title link you’ll see an item code. Just write that down and go to your local comic book store to place the order. Where is your closest comic book store?
The comics will arrive in early October. Each one will end of costing about .25. If you’re one of those people that give out large candy bars for Halloween, we love you, but his is certainly a better deal.

7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens-updated for today’s teens

July 17, 2014

Sean Covey is the author of the book. If that name sounds familiar it’s because he’s the son of Stephen Covey. Stephen is the author of the The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens has more than 5 million copies in print and one that I would’ve benefitted from had I read it back in the day.

In the mood for art? Check out our board on UGallery

I love this painting by Hellenne Vermillion called Ginko Leaves on Black and White because it captures something that anyone who loves nature or Japan may have experienced. The Ginko tree is one of the most commonly seen trees in Japan. It’s called the dinosaur tree because it’s one of the oldest trees on the planet and can withstand urban environments. That is one reason the tree is everywhere in Japan. The Ginko also drops all of its leaves on one day.
