Try it, you’ll like it – pubbing in Grayson with Mary.

Recently, I met a good friend at The Hail Mary Sports Pub in Grayson.  I ordered the grouper salad and sweet tea.  The food was delicious, the tea was just right (sweet but not overdone), and the atmosphere was like you’d want for a business appointment.  Our servers were friendly and attentive, the TVs were tuned to sports and some soap opera but I don’t remember it being noisy.  Even the bathrooms were clean.

Meeler Strikes Again

Donnie Meeler of Meeler Septic Services called and said he would be here the next day to service my septic system and make an upgrade that he had been thinking about lately.  He showed up on time, cleaned the filters, and made sure everything was allright………..just like he said he would.  If you need help with a septic or alternative septic system, try him out.  He came highly recommended to me by somebody who knows this stuff inside and out and he could probably help you out a jam and save you money.  Try him at 770-231-1421, or meeler05@yahoo.com.

Save Gas and Time and Have Fun in Georgia’s Lake Country

Here’s a webpage that gives an idea about places to visit and things to do in Georgia’s Lake Country.  I still haven’t seen Rock Eagle though I have driven by that area several times looking for property.  People used to talk about it when I was growing up because the 4-H Clubs went there, I think.

Anyway, there is a museum and archives for artist Steffen Thomas that looks cool.  They have family workshops once a month on Saturdays and even an online tour of the museum.  It’s in the real Buckhead, Georgia, near Madison.

There Really Is a Palmetto, Georgia?

Kevin Sack of the NYTImes.com wrote an article about the Farmhouse, the restaurant at the Inn at Serenbe in Palmetto, Georgia.  Renowned Atlantans, Steve and Marie Nygren, started it.  It sounds like I need to plan a day-trip…….. at least for the fried chicken.

Do Banks Have Too Much Power? Read Thomas Jefferson

‘I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.’ – Thomas Jefferson 1802

“The financial system has been turned over to the Federal Reserve Board. That board administers a finance system by authority of a purely profiteering group. That system is private, conducted for the sole purpose of obtaining the greatest possible profits from the use of other people’s money. This (Federal Reserve) Act establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the president signs this bill, the invisible government by the monetary power will be legalized. The people may not know it immediately but the day of reckoning is only a few years removed, the worst legislative crime of the ages perpetrated by this banking bill.” – Charles A. Lindbergh, R-MN

“Most Americans have no real understanding of the operation of the international money lenders. The accounts of the Federal Reserve system have never been audited. It operates outside the control of Congress and manipulates the credit of the United States.” – Barry Goldwater, R-AZ

“Give me the right to issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who governs the country.” Meyer Amschal Rothschild, International banker

“We have in this country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board. This institution has impoverished the people of the United States and has practically bankrupted our government. It has done this through the corrupt practices of the money vultures who control it. A superstate controlled by international bankers and international industrialists acting together to enslave the world for their own pleasure.” – Louis McFadden, R-PA 1915-1923

“We have in this country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks. Some people think the Federal Reserve Banks are U.S. government institutions. They are private credit monopolies; domestic swindlers, rich and predatory money lenders which prey upon the people of the United States for the benefit of themselves and their foreign customers. The Federal Reserve banks are the agents of the foreign central banks. The truth is the Federal Reserve Board has usurped the Government of the United States by the arrogant credit monopoly which operates the Federal Reserve Board.” Congressman Louis T. McFadden, Chairman of the House Banking and Currency Committee, addressed the House on June 10, 1932. 75 Congressional Record 12595-12603

“History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling the money and its issuance.” – James Madison

“It is well enough that the people of this nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.” – Henry Ford

“I have unwittingly ruined my country.” – W. Wilson, upon passage of Federal Reserve Act, 1913
