VISIT THE ROLLINS PLANETARIUM AT YOUNG HARRIS COLLEGE!   We all enjoyed the beautiful snow yesterday.   While the sun did come out today and melt some of it away, it will take a warm up tomorrow into Friday to clear most of our driveways and roadways.  If you’re experiencing some cabin fever and want to get out for an evening of fun why not take a short drive over to Young Harris College and the Rollins Planetarium.     Each Friday night guests can enjoy a great show in the Planetarium.   If the night skies are clear, the Young Harris College Observatory will open immediatelly after the Planetarium shows.  The YHC Observatory is a short 1-½ mile drive from the Campus to Twiggs Overlook on the exit road leading from Brasstown Valley Resort.     You’ll be fascinated by a a guided tour of ...

Here’s Your Sign . . . .     Bill Engvall, a comedian and recent contestant on Dancing With The Stars, has a stand-up bit he does as part of his act with The Blue Collar Comedy Tour.  His act includes quips about really stupid things people do or say and ends each with the tagline “Here’s Your Sign”.   I had a real “Here’s Your Sign” moment today that totally overwhelmed me!  Bill and I are fighting a flu bug and so I ran into the local dollar store to grab some cough drops and other OTC medicine which, apparently, you have to be a certain age to purchase.       The conversation between the High School Age-Looking Cashier and I goes like this:     “I need your birth date”   “2-1-60”   (for those of you trying to do the math, I’ll be 54 soon)   “What month is that”     (Seriously) “Febru...

  Crane Creek Vinyards in the Young Harris, GA mountains will be celebrating their long awaited release of the 2011 Hellbender Red. Join them on Tuesday, November 26, 2013 at 6:30 PM at Holly Hill as they release this new vintage of their 100% Norton Hellbender Red. Be one of the first to stock up for the holidays! I was fortunate enough to win a huge basket from Crane Creek Vineyards at our local North GA Board of Realtors meeting that included a bottle of the Hellbender Red and was very impressed with it. I have to say, I've truned into more of a red than white wine lover now.   Crane Creek Vineyards · 916 Crane Creek Road · Young Harris, GA 706.379.1236  Crane Creek Vineyards   info@cranecreekvineyards.com

  Crane Creek Vineyards located in Young Harris, Georgia was a place of celebration as they held their first booking in their new event building, Holly Hill. This will be a wonderful place for meetings, receptions, anniversaries, birthdays and other events. Owners, Eric and Deanne Seifarth, along with their family and staff have created a little piece of heaven here in the mountains of north GA.             But back to why we were there this night... the Bank of Hiawassee, Blairsville and Blue Ridge, held this special event for Realtors to announce they are now Citizens South Bank. Besides the gorgeous setting and views, we were treated to sampling their red and white wines along with a lavish cheese table, the biggest shrimp we’ve ever seen and other hors d’oeuvres - not to mention a ...

Sewage Treatment and disposal on an individual lot is done with the combination of a septic tank and a drain field. the effectiveness of a sewage disposal system depends largely on the soil characteristics of the drain field. The soils at a particular site may be inadequate for absorbing and properly treating the septic tank effluent if the bedrock is at a shallow depth, the slope is excessive, the water table is high, there is subject to flooding, or the soils are too dense. A failing septic system is a direct health hazard to you and your neighbors. It can contaminate surrounding drinking water supplies, pollute creeks and rivers, and cause an unpleasant odor in your home. There have been cases of people drinking contaminated with E. coli (a bacteria from both human and animal feces....
