Georgia Carnival: Edition 29

Regular readers of History Is Elementary are in for a treat as the Georgia Carnival has put up its tent here for the weekend. Hopefully visitors looking for the Georgia carnival will stick around long enough to see what History Is Elementary has to offer… isn’t just for teachers.

No matter the reason for stopping by welcome to
History Is Elementary, and welcome to the 29th edition of the Georgia Carnival…one of a very small number of state or regional carnivals being published today in the blogosphere.

The next carnival will be hosted over at
Georgia on My Mind two weeks from today. If you maintain a Georgia blog and would like to host the carnival at your site e-mail me to set up a date. It’s a great way to put your own personal spin on the carnival.

The last edition of the Georgia carnival can be found at
here, and the carnival archives are found here.

Due to some severe outages in my area (Thanks AT&T/Southern Bell) this was almost the carnival that didn’t happen. For that reason the submissions are presented in the order that they were received…..more or less.

Now… on to the highlights of Georgia blogging during the past two weeks. Please support these fine Georgia bloggers by letting them know you have visited them with a comment. Your continued support with your links and shout-outs at your site helps to alert others to what we Georgia bloggers have to offer:

Freddie L. Sirmans, Sr. wonders Can The US Prevent A Starvation Crisis? and Will the Euro Trump the Dollar? Big issues that deserve your input.

Every state needs a road geek and Steve Williams served admirably in that position. He presents A US 411 Connector Update posted at The Georgia Road Geek.

Moses E. Miles III gives us a character check-up and states, “Developing your character can lead to a hopeful more positive life.” Check out his post Celebrating Character posted at Three Sticks.

So what does a teacher do when the kids go home? Terrell shares what he did last week in his post Spring Has Sprung? posted at Alone on a Limb, saying, "A teacher walks the school woods looking for early signs of Spring." (His pictures are great!)

William Cotter better known in the Georgia Blogosphere as Paw Paw Bill states, “Everybody hates taxes--theirs, not yours. Yours are just fine.” So True. Read what else he has to say within his post Taxation With Representation.

I have a love/hate relationship with Home Depot myself, so I appreciate Paw Paw Bill's post Fall of the House of Homer .

This week at Georgia on My Mind I posted Moses Allen: A Great Georgia Transplant and over at Got Bible I thought about Love....the Greatest Thing.

John serves up another author interview with his post Never Challenge a Goblin to a Game of Rakachak: An Interview with Jim C. Hines posted at Grasping For The Wind.

Have you caught on to the fact that you can now watch many of your favorite television shows online? I have and it’s great! So has Kevin over at Satellite TV Guru. He provides The Best Places to Watch Prison Break Online.

Janet presents Buzzing With the Booties posted at Sky Girl Style. If I had to describe Sky Girl Style in one word I’d have to say “creativity” and I love the baby booties. This blog will be added to the Georgia blogroll in the next round of additions.

Another new addition will be Jen's Genuine Life. The tagline there states “a genuine native Atlantan mom of twins living life in the peach state”. Jen presents 13 Things about Republican Precinct Meetings and Conventions in the Peach State.

Felicia over at Fluffy Flowers presents Road Trip where we get a quick look at the lovely antique stores in Madison, Georgia and she provides another event from Lucky’s life with Scenes From a Vet's Office.

Russell over at Beer Pong Is Never a Good Idea has a few deep thoughts regarding The Modern Era, and I have to say I understand his position regarding cough syrup.

In case you were unaware this is the season of Lent. Pastor Bill over at Provocative Church asks the question, What is Lent and why do we do it?

Finally, the blogroll of Georgia blogs over at Georgia on My Mind contains several examples on online publications such as newspapers and magazines. Moonshine is one such example. It’s a magazine of the southern arts and the newest edition is available and free at the link. Go visit….the tagline states, “find the sublime by the light of the moon.” A few of the topics in the new edition include the National Symphony’s tour of South Carolina, and interview with the Blues pianist Eden Brent, photos of a pink dog, and something titled “Dumpster Diving For Roses”. Intrigued? I am.

The next edition of the carnival will be found at Georgia on My Mind on Friday, February 29th. Posts can be sent to or use the handy submission form. Submissions are due Thursday, February 28th by 6:00 p.m.

Thanks for your continued support of the Georgia Carnival!

Thank you for including me in your Carnival, not the least reason being that it directed me to your "13 Rules," a joyous blast from the past.
